I should probably post my August Birchbox before my September one gets here! This month was all about everyday beauty essentials and fall trends with a “back to school” vibe.
What I got in my August Birchbox:
- Schick Hydro Silk Razor
- Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream
- stila stay all day™ foundation, concealer, & brush kit
- Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur
- Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream
This month, we’re helping you refill your beauty supply kit with must-try essentials and new products that will take you through the fall. Plus, we’ve put together plenty of fresh content to ensure that you ace every class.
The little Beauty School booklet included in this box was a really useful (and cute) inclusion. I can see many girls keeping this booklet in their makeup stash.
As far as the products this month, I wasn’t overly impressed. I wouldn’t have paid $10 for what I received, but a couple of the samples were fun to try. The Stila foundation packets and the razor were my two favs. Shaving cream isn’t something that I normally buy (I just use hair conditioner) so it was cool to sample, but nothing I would consider purchasing. Prepare for total and utter shock, but I was actually excited to get a perfume sample LMAO. I’ve been wanting to smell that new Juicy fragrance forever and I really like it! The Yu-Be sample was just alright. I like the brand but for something like a moisturizer, you really need a larger sample size to test out it’s true benefits.
My August was really a “middle of the road” box for my taste. What did you get in your box?
