Birchbox August 2017 {Easy Does It}

R + Co HIGH DIVE Moisture + Shine Creme
Full Size Price: $27.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.70
This is a moisture and shine hair cream that claims to smooth and seal the hair cuticle, soften strands, fight frizz, and enhance shine. To use this product, simply apply a small amount to towel-dried or damp hair before styling. The formula of this product is lightweight and doesn't feel overly greasy. It applies evenly and easily to the hair and didn't cause any irritation to my scalp. I found the scent to be light yet very nice, more on the floral side. I did find that it kept my frizz some what maintained and I would consider purchasing the full size.


GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment
Full Size Price: $69.00
Sample size value is approximately: $10.14
This is a hydrating treatment mask that claims to boost radiance with a formula of hyaluronic acid, raw honey, and ginger root. The scent of this mask is absolutely amazing, it has a light citrus floral note to it that does linger on the skin for a bit after use. The formula is on the thicker side but it does thin out easily when blended onto the skin. It has a slight cooling sensation when applied and left my skin feeling quite refreshed and hydrated after use. I really enjoyed the product and will be purchasing the full size.


Acure Organics Day Cream
Full Size Price: $16.98
Sample size value is approximately: $9.98
This is an anti-aging moisturizer that claims to provide all day nourishment and protect skin from environment and free radical damage. The formula of this moisturizer is lightweight and carries citrus notes to it that are quite lovely and do linger on the skin. I found it to be moisturizing and it did not irritate my skin. I feel for any long term anti-aging claims, it would need to be used for a prolonged period of time. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in shade "Perla"
Full Size Price: $22.00
Sample size value is approximately: $11.00
This is a liquid lipstick in a rosy neutral shade that applies as a gloss but sets like a stain. I really loved the color and pigmentation of this lipstick. The main issues I had with it were the application and the setting of the formula. Without a lip liner, I was unable to get this to apply without having obvious patchy areas. No matter how I reapplied it would continue to pull, more so in the middle part of my lips. I do think a lip liner may help with this issue though. The other problem I had was after it fully set it was quite dry on the lips and was slightly uncomfortable. I don't know if a lip liner or possibly topping with a lip gloss would help with this. While I do find the color to be beautiful, I don't think it works well for me.


Marcelle City Multi-Protection Tinted Cream SPF 25 in shade "Fair"
Full Size Price: $22.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.50
This is a tinted face cream that claims to moisturize, prime, and lightly cover imperfections as well as protecting against pollution and harmful UV rays. The formula of this product is on the thicker side, which means a little does go a long way. I found that this shade matched my skin-tone quite well and for being a light coverage cream, it does a decent job of smoothing out my skin and giving it a nice dewy look. I enjoyed the product and would consider purchasing the full size.


My August Birchbox is valued at $39.32.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription so this gives me an additional value of $29.32.


Overall, I was fairly pleased with this month's box and see it as an improvement of previous months boxes. I would like to see more makeup/beauty related items though. My favorite product from this month's box is the face mask.
