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: http://birch.ly/17xH1n1.
