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.
