Birchbox – August 2014

June took a vacation…I’ve been working, took a trip back to Wisconsin, had family out here and then had oral surgery. I am back and have a Birchbox to share! This month we were able to choose a sample in our August box. Let’s see what I chose and what else I received for August!

What am I thinking…

Although I don’t think my hair is suited for second day hair, I’m still happy to try out another dry shampoo! I’m excited to see if this particular dry shampoo adds volume since I have pretty flat hair. I don’t have large pores nor do I have oily skin but we’ll see what Dr. Jart can do. I doubt it will do much because this sample is teeny-tiny!  I picked the bronzer powder and I’m still happy I did.  The powder looks dark but I rubbed some on my wrist to see a swatch and it seems to be pretty transparent, so that’s good! Another Supergoop!..and this is also the tiniest sample.  I do like the smell but holy smokes, this is so small… I am pretty excited to try the face mask so some night I’ll pamper myself with that!  Overall, I’m happy with receiving another dry shampoo, the bronzer and the mask. I think this was a decent box.

  1. Ditto SuperGoop. If I never receive another SuperGoop I’d be happy.
    I’m curiously how you liked the mask. I got a mask from the same brand in my box this month and I loved the way it felt but didn’t notice much difference in my skin. Also, I see you go the bronzer. I am LOVING this bronzer. It scared me at first too, but with a light touch it gives a nice glow. My husband even commented on how pretty it looked. Win!
