August Birchbox

This month's Birchbox was "Beauty School" themed and geared to help you refill your beauty supply kit and prepare you for Fall. It was a fun take on back to school supplies since school is just right around the corner (but not for me!) They also included great beauty tips in the booklet above. I loved all of the hot pink in this box, definitely an instant pick me up!
Here's what was in my box:

1. Juicy Couture | Viva la Juicy La Fleur
I'm not usually a fan of getting perfume samples in my box because I have so many and it just creates clutter but I am happy I got to smell this perfume. It's a blend of wild berries, mandarin and waterlily. It smells really good!
2. GLOSS Moderne | High-Gloss Masque
Treatment that restores bounce + shine to your hair. I love this, it smells great and made my hair feel really soft! You leave it on for 5 minutes and rinse.
3. Beauty Fixation | Lipstick Touch-up
Pre-filled swabs to fix wandering lipstick lines. I don't wear lipstick too much, more a lipgloss girl so I'm not sure I'll be using them, but they seem useful for those that do!
4. Sumita | Brow Base
Wax concealer pencil helps keep unruly brows in place. I had heard about brow wax lately (on beauty vlogs) + wondered if it was any good, so I was happy to try it out when I got it. I liked it, it works well and is quick and easy to use.
5. Birchbox Find | Schick Hydro Razor
It has a water-activated moisturizing serum that moisturizes for up to two hours after shaving. I loved it + it's always nice to have a back up razor!

Favorite: Hair Masque
Least Favorite: Lipstick Touch-ups

Neat! I'm loving this return to snail mail that various companies seem to be capitalizing on with grown up goody bags :)

Have you also tried the Glam Bag? I get their bags but am considering switching to Birchbox.

Found your blog on the twitter hop, it's so cute! I'm a recent grad too, can't wait to read your post-graduation adventures!

This was a great box! I hope that hair mask works great! I need to find a new one.

This was a fun box. I would love to have a little razor come in the mail to me too...so handy! Those sticks look like the Almay eye makeup sticks. I don't think I would use the lipstick remover either. You should check and see if you can use them for the eyes.

Looks like you received a fabulous box. I gave up birchbox last month because I just kept getting a terrible box. xo
