Unboxing // August 2015 Birchbox review


Time for the August Birchbox rundown. First and foremost, I loved the design of this box for August. It's super cute and summery and makes me want to dive right in!

This month, I was excited to see that the R+Co Dry Shampoo was included in the sample choices. I've heard a lot about this dry shampoo and have been dying to try it. I've only used it once so far, but like what I see at this point.

One thing I don't like about Birchbox (now that I've had it for almost 3 years) is that they say you never get the same sample twice, which is true, but they give you variations of same sample. 

For instance, I've definitely gotten this COOLA After Sun Lotion before, but it wasn't the "Plus" version. Or in the past, I've gotten the same lip gloss, just in a different color. I get why they do it and it honestly doesn't happen often, but it's kind of annoying at times.

If you're new to Birchbox, it's an online monthly subscription box that sends you 4 to 5 samples of beauty, hair, skin, and lifestyle products based on your profile questionnaire. 

It costs $10 a month and includes hundreds of different brands -- both well known and up-and-coming.

Here's a look inside...



COOLA Environmental Repair Plus Radical Recovery After Sun Lotion | This soothing lotion uses agave to moisturize, protect, and calm post-sun woes.

dr. brandt pores no more cleanser | Award-winning gel that degunks pores for fewer blackheads and smoother skin.

IPKN Pore Apple Sun Cream | With SPF 40+ protection, this fruit extract-infused cream blocks UV rays while minimizing pores.

R+Co DEATH VALLEY Dry Shampoo | Style-refreshing spray that saps excess oil, gives hair volume and body, and adds tousled texture.

theBalm cosmetics Balm Desert Bronzer/Blush | A blush and bronzer in one, this velvety powder gives a long-lasting, fresh-from-the-beach glow.

BONUS! Kerastase Bain Force Architecte | We've added in this shampoo from Kerastase to restore strengthen, and boost shine.

So that's my August box! Remember in-depth posts come each Friday.
