July 2016 Birchbox

I have received my second Birchbox which included these 5 items.

Benefit They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara: The mascara lengthens, volumizes, and curls lashes to create a dramatic look. The mascara is also long-wearing and does not smudge. I have received yet again another mascara from a beauty box, but I have been wanting to try this mascara since I have seen it recommend a lot. I have already tried this mascara out and it does add length and volume to my lashes. This is one of the best mascaras I have tried, but Benefit is not cruelty-free.

$24 at Benefit

 

Supergoop! Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30:  The serum repairs, protects, and primes the skin to counteract aging. I like that the serum is used as a sunscreen, but I feel like I am too young to start using anti-aging products. However, Supergoop! is cruelty-free.

$42 for 59 ml at Supergoop!

 

Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturizing Cream: The cream hydrates, soothes, and protects skin from flare-ups. I can get redness in my face, so I am looking forward to trying this cream out. However, Jurlique is not cruelty-free.

$46 for 40 ml at Jurlique

 

Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris: The perfume blends grapefruit, orange blossom and Nashi pear with violet and patchouli. The perfume has a sophisticated scent, but it is not something I would wear. I could not find the cruelty-free status of this company.

$80 for 50 ml at Ulta

 

Davines This Is a Sea Salt Spray: The spray gives hair the beach wave effect while providing volume and moisture. I have been looking at sea salt sprays, so I am excited I received one in my box. The spray also smells nice, which is great for a hair product. Also, Davines does not test on animals.

$28 for 250 ml at Davines

 

Overall, I like most of the items I received, but I have to cancel my subscription because I am moving out of the country.

      1. You should try it, I got a sample from ulta for my birthday last year and I absolutely love it. I’ve stopped having to use a curler all together.
