My final box from my gift subscription…

Klorane – Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, Full-size $18


What: Award-winning fan fave that absorbs grease and puts bounce back into second-day hair.

How: Shake can and spritz 10 inches from roots. After two minutes, brush out and distribute powder.

Shut the front door!  I can’t believe I finally get to try a dry shampoo!  Beyond excited for this and trying tomorrow, FYI.

Sumita – Color Contrast Eyeliner (Raina), Full-size $11


What: This soft wax pencil delivers rich, long-lasting color that won’t irritate eyes.

How: Trace lash line starting from the inside corner of each eye. Blend to create a softer look.

Blue… Oh, I’m sorry. I must have opened the door to the 80’s…


Vasanti Cosmetics – Detox Nutrient-Rich Purifying Facial Cleanser, Full-size $24


What: This foamy, sulfate-free wash gently removes pore-clogging impurities without over-drying.

How: Morning and night, massage into damp skin and rinse away. For all skin types.


Beauty Extra

This month Birchbox teamed up with Women’sHealth Magazine for their Power Up themed box. Inside this month’s box included a coupon to get a one-year subscription to Women’sHealth Magazine for $9.99. Thanks but no thanks. I’ll pass. There was also a booklet with 12 bite-sized challenges to Power Up. Examples are: keep a workout log, eat veggies for breakfast, sit smarter… Interesting.

What am I thinking…

OMG..Dry shampoo! Yay!  I’m also looking forward to trying the Vasanti facial cleanser. I got another one of their products in my June box that I’ve been enjoying so I’m hoping that the cleanser is good too. Although I received yet another lotion, I appreciate that this one is from Spain! I’ve never received shower gel in a box so this is exciting. My only qualm is that they are in foil packets which are no fun trying to use in the shower… The eyeliner tip was broken off my sample so I won’t be able to try that. I wasn’t much to interested in wearing BLUE eyeliner anyway. Overall, I think this box was a little better than last month.

So as I said above, this is my last gift subscription box BUT I did renew on my own! Birchbox will still be showing up in my mailbox once a month!
