August 2013 Birchbox Review

The theme of this month’s Birchbox was Finishing School. I was VERY happy with my August Birchbox!!August Birchbox

I received these products:

Whish Exfoliating Body Wash – This body wash is amazing! It smells wonderful (coconut milk) and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. I didn’t find it to be quite as harsh as some exfoliating products, which was nice. I received Whish shave cream in last month’s Birchbox. I’m loving Whish products!

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product – I was really excited to receive this product as I see it advertised in EVERY magazine. It’s a really good sized sample and feels weightless on my hair. I can never have enough leave-in products!

(MALIN+GOETZ) vitamin e face moisturizer – This moisturizer hydrated my super dry skin. It’s safe for sensitive skin and can also be used as a primer.

stila stay all day liquid lipstick – I was super excited to receive this product in my birchbox. It is extremely pigmented. I like the formula–it goes on as a liquid and dries immediately. It’s a bit hard to work with…if you don’t put in on perfectly, you may spend awhile cleaning up a mess. This red is a little much for me, but I think it’d be great in a nude shade.

Whish hair inhibiting deodorant swipes – I haven’t tried these yet, but I’m expecting great things since they’re a Whish product. They claim to “tackle odor and slow hair growth in one swipe.”

My rating for the August Birchbox: A

The Finishing School Birchbox really impressed me! I’d been getting frustrated with Birchbox because their boxes have been paling in comparison to ipsy, but this month they pleasantly surprised me!
