Birchbox August 2013


This is the last summer Birchbox!

I am quite excited for next month already. I can’t wait to see what will be in the autumn Birchboxes and of course the holiday boxes!


This month’s box contained:

Miss Jessie’s Original Super Sweetback Treatment

Miss Jessie’s Original Rapid Recovery Treatment

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in Kitty

Violet Oasis 100% Organic Argan Oil

Whish Coconut Milk Correcting Gel

Whish Hair Inhibiting Deodorant Swipes


It also came with a coupon for Ann Taylor, which I am very excited about because I love that store!

Overall, I think this is a decent box. I was really hoping to receive the Coconut Milk Correcting Gel after Birchbox previewed it on their Facebook page. I think my issue with this box is the sizing. Although I love hair treatments, I’m not a fan of the foil packets (which Birchbox always seems to give). Since Birchbox claims to be a deluxe sample box, two of each packet would seem to uphold that declaration more. But, the lipstick, Whish Correcting Gel, and the argan oil are pretty great sizes. And It gives me enough to see whether or not I really like the product.

Have you tried any of these products?

      I like Birchbox for their rewards system, but overall I think that Ipsy gives better sized products. If you prefer makeup, I’d recommend Ipsy and Birchbox if you’re more into skincare & haircare. I personally like both, but lately Ipsy has been better!
