Birchbox August 2016 {Endless Summer}

9:00 AM

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
Full Size Price: $28.00
Sample size value is approximately: $4.37
This is a BB cream that has multitasking purposes. It is intended to not only give your skin a golden glow but it helps control shine and mask imperfections in the skin. I found the formula to be quite thick unlike most BB creams I have used. The color I was given does not match my skin tone so I was unable to wear it fully. The sampling I did try seemed to be fairly decent with coverage. I did deal with some minor creasing but nothing that couldn't be blended thoroughly. I would be interested in trying this in my shade.

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle
Full Size Price: $23.50
Sample size value is approximately: $5.87
I've had this sample in a previous Birchbox and it is a product that I already enjoy. This is a hair product that both protects and detangles. It also helps lock in color and adds silkiness while making your hair smell amazing. I really enjoy the formula and how sweet yet light the scent is. I would purchase the full size of this product.

Living proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil
Full Size Price: $38.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.79
My hair is fairly often frizzy especially in the humid summer months so I am always on the lookout for hair products that can help control the messy locks. This is a fast-absorbing nourishing oil that fights flyaways and hydrates. It can be used on either dry or damp hair. I found that with only a few drops in my hair that it managed to keep my flyaways and frizz under control. I really enjoyed the scent and would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Acure Organics Coconut & Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes
Full Size Product: $6.99
Sample size value is approximately: $2.76
These are skin cleansing towelettes that are both gentle and biodegradable. They contain coconut and argan oil that not only helps remove makeup but also keeps the skin hydrated and refreshed. I really love the scent that these carry but did find the size of the towels to be quite small. Overall, I found they removed my makeup quite well and did not irritate my skin in any way. I would purchase the full size of this product.

stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shade "patina"
Full Size Price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $18.00
I am a big fan of Stila cosmetics, especially their lip products. This is a liquid lipstick that carries deep pigmentation and a long lasting color payoff. The lipstick glides on like a gloss yet sets like a stain. I received the shade "Patina" which is a beautiful dusty rose color. While I love the color, I did find that once it sets it does become quite drying. With a gloss on top, it doesn't become as big of an issue. I was able to eat and drink with this product on and had very little come off. I would purchase the full size and other shades of this product.

Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder
Full Size Price: $39.00
Sample size value is approximately: $1.14
This is a bonus product that came with this month's box. I am a smoothie junkie and am always looking for ways to boost the nutritional value of what I am getting out of my drinks. This is an energy-boosting powder that contains raw organic greens, enzymes, and probiotics to support healthy skin and metabolism. I received the flavor Mint Chocolate Chip and really loved the overall taste. It is not chalky and blends beautifully into my fruit smoothies. I love the added nutritional values this gives and the fact that the flavor is delicious. I would purchase the full size of this product.

The value of my August Birchbox is $34.93.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $24.93.

Overall, I felt okay about this box. I did have some repeat samples and a product that didn't end up matching my skin-tone but there was a nice balance to the products provided. My favorite product from this month was the lipstick.
