August Birchbox Review // Beauty School!

Friday, August 10, 2012

Whew, what a day! I am already exhausted as I type this and it's only 3:00 pm. This has been my day:

  • Coffee w/Ben 
  • Take Bear to groomers 
  • Stop @ Joann Fabrics 
  • Pick up vitamins 
  • Grocery shop 
  • Fill up gas tank (ew,  who likes doing that??) 
  • Run lunch to Ben at work 
  • Pick up Bear from groomers 
  • Stop @ Bank 
  • Finish Monday's blog project 
Yep. All of that before 3:00. In the pouring rain. In wet shoes. Crazy... Oh the lives we lead these days. Fridays are just busy for me and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

With all that said, I think you're really going to enjoy Monday's DIY blog post. :) It's a great summertime project so make sure you come back here on Monday ok?

Well, it's the beginning of a new month and you know what that means! It's time for our monthly Birchbox review. This month's theme was 'Beauty School', equipping fans with items necessary for surviving college/high school life (or for the rest of us who aren't in school- just surviving in general. Wink.).

You know, just as a side note- I'm collecting quite the stock pile of Birch-'boxes' around the house. I should get inspired with a crafty way to reuse them, don't you think? Hmm.... *Ideas roll around in head.

Check out the cute box design this month: 

Comodynes - Self-Tanning Towelettes  Pack of 8: $13.99-$14.99
I have yet to use these but check Facebook as I 'weigh in' with the results next week. I'm overly curious to see if these actually produce good results. 

Comodynes - Hydra Tanning Face Moisturizing Summer Glow  Full Size: $38
I am wearing this today on my face. I like it. It's supposed to work gradually so I'm sure it will become progressively darker the more I use it. But, I can tell a difference. My face is 'glowing'.  ;)

Juicy Couture - Viva la Juicy La Fleur  Full Size: $70
Wow. Say hello to the juiciest juicy ever! Yum. Hands down my favorite Juicy scent. And, let's be honest- it's just fun to say La Fleur. 

Birchbox Bonus! - Schick Hydro Silk Razor.
Why yes, I did need a new razor. Thank you for being awesome Birchbox.

Beauty Fixation - Makeup Removers. Full Size: $5.00
Another item that I've been wanting to try for months. These q-tips are filled with makeup remover. You simply crack the end to get the 'juice' flowing. Makes fixing any makeup 'oops' a cinch.  

DDF - Brightening Cleanser. Full Size: $38
I used this cleanser last night and was satisfied with the results. Leaves your face a little tingly which makes me feel like it would be especially great for those with oily skin. 

You've got to love this. A cute little pamphlet of beauty tips & tricks. :)

Also, it's worth mentioning that for the entire month of August, 15% of Birchbox's total sales will be donated to Pencils of Promise, a non-profit organization that helps to educate children all over the world.

Have an exceptionally great weekend everyone! I'll be back here on Monday to bring you a fun DIY blog. As always, thank you for reading.
