My August 2015 featured“Candidly Nicole” Birchbox is here! I have two Birchbox accounts. I have signed up on two different emails. I love Birchbox! It is one of the oldest subscription boxes out there. The boxes are so cute and they come with awesome brands. I have discovered many favorite brands through this service.
Every month they allow you to pick one of your samples or opt for the guest editor/featured box. On one of my accounts, I opted for the guest editor box. The August guest editor was Nicole Richie from Candidly Nicole. This box usually ships faster as well. Also, this month Birchbox had this box on sale for a one time purchase! It sold out extremely fast. I had already opted to receive this box as my Birchbox; otherwise, I would have just purchased the box.
Ships: To US, France, Canada, Spain, and the United Kingdom
Bonus: Use Code SUBSCRIBENOW50 to get $5 (50 points) to spend in the Birchbox shop
August 2015 featured“Candidly Nicole” Birchbox FIRST IMPRESSION:
The box was very feminine and girly! I really liked it. I also loved the Mad Lib that was included! I loved the spoilers for this box; therefore, I couldn’t wait to dig in!
REVIEW OF ITEMS:
Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant
I have used this product before and it is nice. It is not a miracle product, but it is a nice facial scrub. I would probably never buy the FULL SIZE at $78, but I will gladly use up this sample.
LAQA & Co Cheeky Lip in Humble Brag
Now, this is what I am talking about! I love this lip product! The color is so wearable and smooth. I love how it applies and that it stains your lips. It really does last a long time. You can also wear it as a blush so it is a very versatile product.
OPI Venice Collection Polish in My Gondola or Yours
Every box received one of eight shades in this OPI collection. I really like this black color. I don’t wear black on my nails often, but this color looks so classy.
Rene Furterer Lissea Leave-In Smoothing Fluid
This cream is supposed to help protect your hair when heat styling and tame frizz. I will test out this product the next time I use heat on my hair.
St. Tropez Gradual In-Shower Tan
This is the product I was the most excited about. However, I have heard many mixed reviews. Some people love it, while others absolutely hated it. I love the concept of being able to apply this in the shower and then wash it off. I can’t wait to try this product and see how it works on my pale skin.
I loved this box so much! Birchbox is an awesome subscription at only $10/month. I can’t wait to try the St. Tropez and I love the lip/cheek product so much. I discover so many awesome products through Birchbox. There were 5 products to review so that is essentially $5 to spend in the Birchbox shop.
I love that Birchbox has an amazing point system. For every sample you review, you earn 10 points. Once you reach 100 points, you can redeem them for $10 to spend in the Birchbox shop. Therefore, this box was really only $5 if I review every product. I will continue subscribing to Birchbox. What did you receive in your Birchbox? What do you think of this month’s guest editor box?
