August Birchbox Review

I look forward to my Birchbox every month.  I have said it before but it is like Christmas once a month.  For August, Birchbox teamed up with Ann Taylor to give a guide to fall's best beauty trends as well as a coupon for 20% one item or 30% multiples items at Ann Taylor.

Also included in the box were the following items:

Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45+: I used this in place of a tinted moisturizer or foundation.  I really liked this product.  I gave this beauty balm the true test and tried it out when my face had broken out like I was back in high school.  I was impressed by the coverage and it did not feel heavy which is always my fear with products like these.

Jasmine Seven™ Wipes:  These wipes are perfect for when you are out and about.  Last weekend I had spent the whole day walking around NYC with some girl friends and we were going to go out at night.  While we were getting ready for our night out, I used the wipes to freshen up my feet because they were feeling a little grimy.  I was happy I got these in my box but don't think I would purchase them again.

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in KITTY:  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this lipstick.  I usually go for a gloss because I feel like colored lipstick looks weird on me but this stuff is great.  When I originally saw the color I didn't think I would like it but once applied it is a really pretty pink with a little bit of shimmer.  It also did not feel cakey like some lipsticks can be, it was nice and moisturizing.

It's a 10® Miracle Leave-In Product:  I had tried out this product before because my sister received it in a few months ago in a box.  I am a big fan so I was pretty excited when I saw that I had gotten a bottle for myself.  My hair felt very soft and had a nice shine after using.

TanTowel® Classic Formula Self-Tan Towelettes Half Body:  These towelettes are great.  I hate moisturizer.  I use it because I know I should but I hate the way it feels while I am waiting for it to dry.  I also do not go tanning at all so the TanTowel is a great compromise for me.  I was able to achieve a nice color without looking streaky and I did not have to wait too long to let the color dry.

I was very happy with this months Birchbox and I was excited to try out some things I would never have bought myself (Jasmine Seven Wipes & TanTowel).  Click this link for your own Birchbox subscription:
