How pretty is this month's box?! Birchbox teamed up with Rifle Paper Co. for a beautiful floral box that's perfect for spring! I can't get over how lovely it is! I don't want to throw it away!But just as exciting, is what came inside the box! AMAZING hair products from Davines, gorgeous organic pigments from Au Naturale, and lovely scents from English Laundry!

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! 1. Beauty Protector Protect and Detangler 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! 2. COOLA Organic Makeup Setting Spray 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! 3. Harvey Prince Hello Perfume 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. 4. LAQA & Co. Charm School Kit - Humble Brag 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.
