Birchbox: August & September 2016

It has been far too long since I’ve written anything here. I’m sorry for that and I need to get better. Let’s catch up on a few things, like Birchbox.


Above is the box I received for my August box. August’s theme was hair. I received (left to right) Bumble and bumble’s hairdresser’s invisible oil primer, Oribe apres beach wave and shine spray, Aven cleanance cleansing gel, Manna Kadar Cosmetics eye shadow, and Ren flash hydro-boost instant plumping emulsion. Whew, that was a lot. My favorite product was definitely the Oribe wave spray. I have loved every Oribe product I have sampled, mostly because of the smell. I liked this wave spray because it gave my hair texture, but didn’t provide a ton of grit and product residue in my hair. I haven’t touched the eye shadow yet. Eye shadow is my least favorite sample to receive in my box. I’m not sure why, I just don’t really like getting them. I would rather get some other makeup product or a skin care or hair care sample.

Let’s move on to September.


In September’s box I hit the sample jackpot. The box was so full! Let’s go left to right again. In the brownish foil packets are Oribe replenishing body wash and restorative body creme. In front of that is Aromachology totally edible perfume. There is a microdermabrasion scrub by Derma E. The shampoo and conditioner is by Davines and it is their MOMO line for dry and dehydrated hair. Lastly, the little green bottle is nutriganics drops of youth by The Body Shop. So far, my favorite sample has been the drops of youth. I like how it feels on freshly washed face. I haven’t yet used the Oribe samples this month. I hope it smells just like their hair products, so we will see.

I think both August and September boxes were good! I definitely liked the amount of products in September’s box. I tend to use my Birchbox samples when I travel. I haven’t gone anywhere recently so I have a good pile of samples that I have used some of and not finished.

Speaking of this that I have finished, in the next couple weeks I’m going to have a post about empty products I have used up. I have an overflowing basket of empty product containers I have been collecting since July. Stay tuned for that!

How were your boxes from Birchbox?
