August Birchbox – My Items August 11, 2011

Yesterday night was one of those times when I was just COMPLETELY surprised! Last month my Birchbox arrived at the end of July, around the 20th. Everyone had already discussed each of the differences between the boxes and so I didn’t discuss mine since it was Old News at that point. This month I received mine on the 9th! Seriously the 9th – it wasn’t even expected to ship until the 10th. And No, I’m not complaining – I promise. So I got my BirchBox in last night, and quickly opened it up to show you my swag!

A lot of people expressed their disappointment with last month’s Cynthia Rowley picks – it was my first box, so I didn’t know better. I was saddened that I didn’t get the eyeliner – but still it was a reasonably nice set of items which I’ve tried each at least once.  This month I was really hoping for it to be cosmetics heavy since that’s why I signed up for it – past boxes had lots of them.

Well, I almost got what I was hoping for.  Below are each of the steps in retreiving my monthly gift:


The items I received were:

  • June Jacobs Papaya Purifying Mask
  • Ouidad Climate Control  Heat and Humidity gel
  • Shaveworks The Cool Fix targeted gel lotion
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
  • Twistband Hair Ties

So, one of these (Smashbox) falls under the cosmetics category, but I heard some people got the blinc eyeliner or mascara. I would have preferred that to anything I received – I already have the Photo Finish Primer at home, so it’s a redundancy.

Over the next four days I will share info about each of these products and review them.
