August Birchbox Unboxing!
New month, new Birchbox! This month was probably my favorite in terms of the products I received! I've had a chance to test out all of them a bit and I wish I could buy full sizes of just about all of them!
This pretty red bottle claims to be a detangler, heat protector, leave-in conditioner, shine spray, and color protector, all while being weightless and non-greasy. If so, this bottle could be my holy grail. After using it on dry hair before using a flat-iron, it definitely helps frizz, has more shine and doesn't add any weight or grease, but we'll see about its other claims with time. So far, it's a winner!
COOLA has a lot of great products (especially for the summer months!) I've never tried their makeup setting spray, but it seems to be a fairly decent one. It doesn't hold a candle to the Urban Decay version, but if you're more environmentally conscious, this one is a great option!
I am, admittedly, a perfume sample hoarder. I love keeping them in my bag for a quick refresher (and I have about 13 extras in a box...). At first whiff, this one smelled like an old Lemongrass body lotion I had from Bath and Body works in middle school, but after a bit I picked up on the light citrus notes and really liked it! I'm not sure I would purchase the full-size, but it's a lovely light scent if you're not into heavy perfumes.
By far my favorite thing in the box! I expected it to be a very sheer lip balm, but it's actually VERY pigmented and oh so gorgeous! It looks gorgeous on both my lips and cheeks. I am absolutely buying the set of three, which comes with this bright pink, a cherry red, and a light peach. LOVE!
I've only very recently gotten into hand creams, and this so far, is my favorite. I liked the Harvey Prince version, but the Supergoop is a bit more hydrating, absorbs quicker, and has a lighter scent.
Those are all my products from this months Birchbox! Let me know which ones you've tried or want to check out!!
