Birchbox Review: July 2014

July 2014 Birchbox Power Up

My July Birchbox - Power Up - was all about Energizing my routine and encouraging healthy new habits.

What's in it?
Klorane - Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
I always love getting dry shampoo spray in my Birchbox and was excited to try this French version. It has a robust spray of dry shampoo and smells really nice - not too sweet. Also, I tend to gravitate toward French products due to my French degree, and also it reminds me of shopping the Pharmacie aisles in Marseille (this one right here actually) when I studied abroad. French beauty manufacturers and I share a mutual respect for white space.

NAOBAY - Body Radiance Lotion
This body lotion from a Spanish company smells SO GOOD. I actually tweeted with the company to find out just what that smell was.
There you have it. I keep it at my desk and keep sniffing my arm. Weirdo. I know.

Sumita - Color Contrast Eyeliner
I'm not an eyeliner wearer so Josie's Mom was the recipient of this product. I'll have to follow up and let you know how she likes it.

Vasanti Cosmetics - Detox Nutrient-Rich Purifying Facial Cleanser
If there's one thing my skin needs this summer is a good detox. I love Summer but the elements, so so much sunscreen and perhaps a few too many Cuba Libres on vacation have started to catch up to me. This product has so many ingredients designed to renew and refresh my very tired face. I just wish it also came with one voucher for a 4 hour nap.

100% Pure - Gingerade Shower Gel
To be honest, I don't love fumbling around with these little packets with wet hands in the shower but gingerade was too tempting not to try it. The smell was great and I still have another packet to try it again!

The bottom line: I was very pleased with my Birchbox this month, as I usually am. Looking forward to August! I just pre-selected a bronzer so I'm excited to try it.

Have I mentioned that Birchbox makes a great gift? You can gift a 3-month subscription for only $30 (it's $10/month). Have I also mentioned that you can do me a huge favor by ordering through my very own link?
I'll get a few extra Birchbox points so I can buy my very own full size NAOBAY lotion and have one at home and one at the office.
Please? And Thank YOU!
