This will be my sixth Birchbox so I was hoping I'd have a definite answer of what I'd do. Some have been suggesting MyGlam...what do you think?
OH and for those that don't know, with Birchbox you get 4-6 beauty/lifestyle samples a month for $10. (I guess if anything...at least it's only $10 and I get a smile on my face when I get something in the mail!)
Cami's July Birchbox...
I'm a fan of Larabars. Especially because they're gluten free. (Not that I need gluten free...but I just think the concept is great.) I've had this flavor before, Banana Foster...I wasn't a big fan. To me, it tasted like overly-ripe bananas. But again, that might just be me.
2- Eyeko - Skinny Liquid Eyeliner
It came in purple. Who wants purple eyeliner? Not me. BUT I do LOVE this eyeliner. It's great! It's full size, too. (I think!) It's a little steep...$15. But I would pay $15 for it because it glides on so gently and stays all day. HOWEVER, when trying to purchase it through Birchbox online, you can only get it in olive or turquoise...I wonder why that is? I just want black. Luckily I am able to get black elsewhere.
3- boscia - Green Tea Blotting Linens
Amazing. What a pretty decent price, too! I used to use the Oil of Olay wipes frequently. I think they came in a pack of 30 (or so) for around $6 - something like that. These come in a pack of 100 for $10...not badly priced. I like that this product is using green tea...makes me feel healthy just by using it! My face, unfortunately, tends to be oily. Very happy that Birchbox included this in my box!
4- Oscar de la Renta - live in love
Another perfume sample is what I thought when I first saw it. It smells amazing, though. It has a very...elegant and sexy scent to it. I'm very happy with this sample. A full size is $25-$78 according to Birchbox...not sure where that big price difference comes in. Either way, great perfume sample for once!! This is by far my favorite perfume sample that Birchbox has sent me.
5- Jouer - Luminizing Moisture Tint
With it being summer time, I love being able to wear minimal makeup. I've been on the search for a good moisture tint/beauty balm that I can get away with wearing just that and maybe a dash of blush and some mascara. I'm happy with this sample. I'm not happy that a full-size costs $38, though! Ick.
6- Birchbox Exclusive - Earbuds
Pretty color was my first thought! Very fun looking earbuds. I went to use them on my beach walk...they are terrible. I couldn't even get it to connect to my iPhone properly so I could hear Pandora. HORRIBLE exclusive. Birchbox should be ashamed. If the earbuds worked, I would have been very happy with it.
All in all - 4 out of 6 products get the thumbs up (boscia, Oscar de la Renta, Jouer, Eyeko) - which means a great Birchbox for once.
The larabar wasn't terrible, just a poor flavor choice.
What was terrible was the Birchbox Exclusive - Earbuds.
How was your Birchbox this month?
