Bustin’ Open the Birchbox: August

August Birchbox

It’s crazy to think that this month is already almost over! The end of July and first couple weeks of August were absolutely insane as Jason and I packed up our first little (rental) house and moved in with his parents! We’re trying to save some money to payoff our student loans and save money for a down payment on a house (eeeeek!). I still don’t feel adult enough to say that, but I guess adulthood hits ready or not!

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle- This stuff is fantastic, especially for the price and how much you get, 8 oz for 23.50, I’d say that’s truly a bang for your buck! Although I am partial to the davines All-in-One Milk, this stuff is a great alternative for those on a budget. It also smells AMAZING.

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow- I’ve actually received this in a Birchbox before, and fell in love so I ordered it in the full-size. I was happy to see it in my box again so that I could replenish my travel size makeup collection. This is one of my favorite BB creams that I have tried to date. The formula is super lightweight and doesn’t have any kind of overpowering smell like some of the BB creams do. Despite its lightweight feel, it provides excellent coverage (for a BB cream!) and stays all day for me. Highly recommended if you’re looking to try a new BB cream!

Acure Organics Coconut & Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes- These couldn’t have come at a better time considering my impending trip to Mexico. Not only do they smell like the beach, but they are so gentle on your face. I love how they removed my makeup and gave my skin a quick cleanse but also smelled so, so good. I will definitely be buying these for any other upcoming vacations!

HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder- I’m not normally a big health drink person, but this stuff may have converted me. It had great flavor and I felt so healthy drinking it, I’m planning to order the full size container!

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil- I’ve never really tried much from the Living Proof line before, because I tend to stick with what I know for hair care. However, I will definitely be trying some more Living Proof items after trying this oil because I LOVE it. First off, the bottle is super cute and sturdy (you can even lock the top of the travel size so it doesn’t get all over your travel bag). It smells so good, and eliminates frizz instantly, while keeping your hair shiny and light. I think this might be another full size purchase in the near future.

stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick: Petunia- Again, this is another item I have received in a previous Birchbox but I was thrilled to see it again because of how much I loved my first one. This lipstick goes on like a lipgloss (with the wand and all) but within a minute or so it “dries” and forms more of a super smooth lipstick. It stays on forever, and looks just as great even after you’ve had it on for a few hours.

What were your Birchbox favorites this month?!

XO, Katie
