This anti-aging formula gently nourishes sensitive skin around the eyes, resulting in a smoother texture and more even tone, and minimizes dark circles and puffiness. To use this product, use your ring finger to gently pat a small amount to the area around your eyes. Do this during your morning and evening face routine. Retinol may make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so make sure you apply sunscreen to your face when using this product. I found this product to be easy to apply and I liked the texture. It's difficult with the sample size to truly say how well it works but I did feel like it got rid of some puffiness when used at night. Overall, I don't find this product to be extremely unique but I would need to use it more often to likely see more effective results. With the price, I would likely not purchase the full size of this product.

This is a multitasking spray which is part dry shampoo and part texturizer. It's unique formula soaks up oils in grimy hair, and gives your flattened, blown out coif an instant dose of attitude. Patented polymers adsorb oil to give hair a rough-and-tumble texture, while adding a bit of hold to keep things in place. all without the powdery residue that some dry shampoos leave behind. To use this product, hold the can five inches away from your roots and spray generously. Style your hair as normal. This is a very unique hair product and one that I find myself using more than I thought I would. The scent is pleasant and not overwhelming. It does hold true to its claims, it easily works as a dry shampoo while allowing me to give more texture to my hair when styling. I like how easy it is to apply and it does seem to hold through the day. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

This is a truly non-greasy body lotion. It contains a trio of antioxidant rich moisturizers that nourish the skin and ward off sun damage. It is made with organic aloe, Shea butter, and raspberry butter. These ingredients conquer dryness, while organic seaweed extract contains naturally high levels of skin firming papties. The formula also includes organic rice bran oil, a natural source of tocotribols, a potent antioxidant that defeats free radicals and provides UV protection. I have been a big of Whish products since Birchbox gave me a sample of their shaving cream. I also am a huge fan of this particular scent, to me it lingers as a blueberry scent but strangely enough when smelling from the tube and when immediately applied, it smells like pina colada (which is my all time favorite scent). Either way the scent is amazing and very long lasting. This body butter provides even moisture to my skin, leaves it smelling amazing, and does not make me feel greasy. I love how well it works and how a little goes a long way. I would definitely purchase the full size of this product.

This is a silky shimmer powder that has a warm desert glow to it. The fade-resistant formula works as a blush and bronzer in one to give skin that fresh, sun-kissed look. To apply this product, simply dust powder over cheekbones for a natural glow. I am not a big bronzer user in my daily makeup routine but this product makes it easy to use and not feel like I am making my skin too dark. I have very light skin and always fear that bronzer will not look right on my skin tone. This shade can easily be blended and match my skin tone to give me just the right look. I like how pigmented the shade is and I love that its a 2 in 1 product. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Full set price: $20.00

This is the most long-lasting lipstick product that I have ever owned. The creamy, matte formula glides on like a gloss yet has the staying power of a stain. All without drying out your lips, thanks to nourishing vitamin E and avocado oil. This color is vibrant, highly pigmented, and perfect for summer. I am not afraid to rock a bright lip color but beware if you are. This color is intense and is not easy to blend down into a more subtle shade. I do not mind this at all, as I find this lip shade paired with a neutral eyeshadow is my go to summer makeup look. Be very careful when applying this, as a little goes a long way. Once it fully sets, it is not going any where and I have had mine last through an entire day of eating and drinking. I find this to be a new "holy grail" product and definitely will be purchasing the entire set.

Overall, I find this month's box to be decent. I am absolutely in love with the Stila lipstick and that alone makes my box worth it to me. I am tiring of eye creams and hair sprays so I may change up my profile a bit to receive less of those.

The value of my July 2015 Birchbox is $42.74.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription so I received an added value of $32.74.
