Birchbox - July

I love this months Birchbox! First of all it is in this awesome Cynthia Rowley special edition box and when I opened it up I was super stoked about the awesome products inside!! What did you all get in your July Birchbox?

1. Korres Showergel - A deliciously foamy body wash with aloe to keep skin soft long after you've toweled off and an exotically lush fragrance .
- - My Review - This shower gel left my skin feeling super soft! I did not like the smell when I first smelled it directly from the tube but after applying it on my skin it had a fresh scent to it. I did not like it enough to replace my current shower gel so I gave it to my mom who loves the smell!

2. Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser -This perennial award-winner is pH-balanced to gently clear away dirt, oil, and makeup without drying out skin.
- - My Review - I have been using this facial cleanser for a while now and just ran out so I was super delighted to see this awesome mini included in this months birchbox! I wear foundation mostly everyday. I absolutely love this cleanser. It makes my face feel so fresh and clean after I use it! It does not leave my skin dry or flaky at all. It also doesn't have a strong scent either which is great! I feel as though I have been noticing less breakouts since using this product. I don't think my old cleanser was helping me remove all of my makeup before I went to bed. I would recommend this product to all of my friends. Major love!

3. Redken Shine Flash - A must for all Cynthia's runway shows, this weightless spray gives hair a brilliant sheen.
- - My Review - I was not too fond of the smell. Reminded me of copper. It did leave my hair quite shiny but I would not use this product on a daily basis.

4. ybf Beauty Automatic eye brow pencil in universal taupe - A two-in-one brow-tamer: the comb brushes hairs into place, while the creamy pencil fills in sparse areas.
- - My Review - Who doesn't love two-in-one? The brow brush worked perfectly on my brows and the pencil was pretty close in comparison to my current brow pencil. It may be a bit dark for some people. I use MAC Cosmetics Eyebrow pencil in Spiked and this one is a bit darker.

5. Kind Almond & Apricot - Snack right with this wholesome bar - no preservatives or hard-to-pronounce ingredients.
- - My Review - Super yummy. 190 Calories and it is a pretty big bar. Perfect if you are just looking for a quick snack. It filled me up!

Where to buy - Birchbox


  1. I really liked the box, too! The stuff I got is all stuff I could use. I'm glad someone else feels the same way; a lot people said they didn't like it this month.

  2. I agree! I can use all of these goodies! Can I just say how much I adore your hair? Love it so much! :)
