Birchbox Brag August 2012

Yes it is that time again! Time for the Birchbox brag! What is Birchbox? It is a subscription service (like a magazine) where you pay $10 a month and can get 4-6 beauty samples delivered to you! And I have been a Birchbox member for almost 2 years now, and still like it! birchbox 002

August’s theme was Beauty School, the only sad thing was one of my products leaked (see the funny shaped orange-red stain above?)

I got 4.5 oz. of this product! That’s an insane amount of cleanser for a sample and so far I love it! According to the Birchbox site,

“Even when you don’t have blemishes, there are other complexion nuisances to deal with—namely, sun spots, acne scars, and age spots. Instead of just concealing them, call in this gentle gel cleanser. Developed by a leading dermatologist, the targeted formula uses a team of natural skin brighteners, including licorice root and mulberry bark, to even out your complexion and lighten discolorations. Over time, you’ll have noticeably smoother, brighter skin. Now you just need to hold up your end of the bargain by using it every day. “

Then the beauty extra was a Schick Hydro Silk Razor, I can always use a new razor so this was a plus for me!  They say: “The Schick Hydro Silk Razor is our latest Birchbox Find. Thanks to this innovative new razor, we’ll be showing off our legs all season long. It has a water-activated moisturizing serum that moisturizes for up to two hours after shaving. Plus, the five blades have skin guards that follow the natural contours of your body to smooth skin and help prevent irritation. The result: silky legs, every time.”

Then I got these Nail polish touch up q-tips, I am always changing my polish colors so these will come in handy.

They site says: “While we love attempting the latest nail art designs and doing our own it-color manicures, we’ve have our fair share of polish mishaps. That’s where these genius precision swabs come in. They’re pre-filled with a polish remover formula to help you erase goof-ups and get a salon-precise mani. Each 24-pack will last you for months—as long as you don’t give into the temptation to switch up your nail design every other day (hey, we’re guilty of it too). “

Then I got a sample of the new Viva La Juicy perfume, didn’t really like this one at all, but I have gotten a perfume I did like through them, so it’s hit and miss.

Finally I got the Whish Body butter, it smelled nice, but I haven't tried it yet.
