My July Birchboxes

Just $10 per month and with their amazing point system, you earn free full size products FAST!

Since I receive 2 Birchboxes, I thought it would be easier to just combine them both into one post.  This was an extra fabulous month for me with Birchbox as I loved both boxes I received.  Here is a look at what I got. 

Birchbox #1

 Insert Cards

Manna Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion
I do not have the picture of the tube this came in because I wanted to test it out on my vacation.  I was really excited to get this as I almost purchased the full size.  I am glad I received the sample first because although I did like it, I don't think I liked it enough to buy the full size.

Live in Love Oscar de la Renta Perfume Vial
I received a deluxe sample of this in one of my boxes and while I did not hate the scent, it just really is not for me, so this is going in my trade/giveaway box.

Ahava Purifying Mud Mask
I love that this is a deluxe size sample.  There is enough in the tube for several uses.  I actually used this today and I like how gentle it is.  You only wear it for 2 minutes, so your face doesn't feel tight for long.  I will probably keep mine on longer in the future.

Laura Geller Double Dipped Lipstick in Caribbean Kiss
This is a full size tube worth $17.50.  The neat thing about this lipstick is that each side is a different color that you can wear seperately or together.  This can also be a bad thing because I preferred one color over the other and I am curious how the lipstick will look like after I use it a few times.  I love how soft and smooth this lipstick made my lips feel.

Birchbox Bonus: Earbuds
I adore this Birchbox extra!  How cute are they?  I love the colors. 

Birchbox #2

Prince Harvey Hello Perfume Vial
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this perfume!  It smells super fresh and light.  I usually HATE perfume samples (hello, those are free at the mall), but this one I did not mind receiving at all.  I think I will be purchasing the full size in the future.

Beauty Blender
We already know how I feel about these amazing blenders.  If not, you can check out my post HERE or HERE.

Minteas Cocoa Mints
I love these mints!  I love them so much that I received a tin of these in the past, purchased an extra through Birchbox, and then found them at my facialist's salon and purchased even more.  Lol.  I have to admit that the first time I tried them though, I hated them, but they grew on me. :)

Jouer Luminating Moisture Tint
Ok, seriously, these are really getting old.  I think every box out there has sent one of these out, not to mention that the company will send you a few of these for free just for asking.  I am not big on the tint, but that seems to be the only product I keep getting.  I do love their other products, so I am hoping to see a little variation in the future.  In the trade/giveaway box you go.

Stila Lip Glaze
 No, I did not get all three of these, but I have already traded mine, so this picture comes from the Birchbox website.  I like these glazes, but I own a few already and am not a huge fan of glosses that have a brush for the tip.  I was able to trade this for a Marbella permanent liner from MyGlam, so I am super happy.
Birchbox Bonus: Earbuds
I am really glad that I received this in a different color than my last box.  I wouldn't be able to pick which one I like better, but now I have one of both ;)

Once again, Birchbox, you have made me one happy girl!  Even though I did not love every product, I feel that there was enough variety and value to make these boxes more than worth the money.  Not to mention the bonus points I earned leaving feedback!  Both of these boxes together cost me $20, which includes shipping.  After leaving feedback, I received $11 in credit towards future purchases (between both accounts).  The best part is that if I wait until I get a coupon code, that $11 turns into even more money toward free products (ask me if you are interested in learning how that works).  So in essence I paid $9 for all of this!  Not too shabby!


  1. Wow great BirchBox! A lot of products I would love to try !

  2. Just out of curiosity how do you end with with 2 different boxes? I know you said you have 2 accts, but is there a way to select a box or something? I am still awaiting my referral link so I don't know how it works yet!
