July 2012 Birchbox

This month my July Birchbox made it here before my July My Glam bag! They have partnered up with Glamour Magazine this month to bring a box that is themed for the senses. I must say I don't really care for this box I would have much rather had one that had different products as these ones just don't really appeal to me all that much. Who knows tho maybe I will end up really liking them once I get to try them out.

 My Box Included:
The Senses Themed
Ahava | Purifying Mud Mask
This seems kind of interesting and my skin has been breaking out pretty bad lately so what the heck I'll give it a try at least.

Laura Geller | Doubled Dipped Lipstick in Caribbean Kiss
I don't really care for this color combo but this is a full size product so I can appreciate that. The pink side has some sort of little divet in it which makes me wonder if it was opened in the warehouse.. but maybe that is just my ocd kicking in.

Manna Kadar | Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion
This can be mixed with foundation or used alone as a highlighter. I already have a favorite highlighter Watts Up by Benefit so we'll see how this compares.

Oscar de la Renta | Live in Love
Or a drop of it anyway not sure what happened to the rest it didn't spill inside my box... I'm really not pleased that it's a perfume sample with a drop in it and to make things worse it doesn't have a spray top. This does smell really nice on the plus side tho.

Lifestyle Extra
Birchbox Exclusive | Earbuds
Haven't tried these yet but I plan on taking them on my next flight back to Michigan hopefully I'll get lucky and get a nice plane with TV to keep me entertained.



I think this box is a bit underwhelming but I guess every month can't be a winner right? I do think they stayed on theme pretty well and it's cool there's some Spotify playlists to check out if you like that over Pandora.

There were a whopping 31 box variations this month, one too many if you ask me. Mine is considered to be box variation 1.

Whats your take on the July 2012 The Senses Birchbox?

  1. Ah this makes me miss Birchbox! I actually like the lip colors- it must be hard to give shades that everyone will like you know?

    1. Yea for sure I wish they would do better in the box variations I guess. This box doesn't really compare to the other ones :(

  2. I got box three, the only difference was I got eyeliner instead of lipstick, and a different perfume sample

  4. I ended my subscription a while ago because I kept feeling underwhelmed as well! The ear buds look nice though!

  5. That sucks that you were disappointed. :( I ended my subscription last year because I felt the same way. It happens. I would rather spend the $10 somewhere else to get what I want.

  6. I don't think this box was too bad! You got earbuds :) those are always good to have on hand! I like the lipstick you received I can't wait to hear what you think of the colour. The rest of the items are very typical of birchbox. Still parfum samples...shimmering facial or body lotion!

  7. wow i actually think you got a better box than mine! that shimmer lotion and the lipstick are really nice! i got the mud mask and earbuds but i got some uv hair protectant, mints, and a fragrance. i honestly was disappointed as well. i LOVE glamour and so i was really hyping this box up in my head. but i agree. for $10 I'm sure ill get my use out of the products. you win some you lose some!! thanks for sharing your contents! xoxo

    1. They really did hype it I too expected a lot better from them. I think I would have liked your box more ;)

  8. Wow, 31 different variations? Crazy! I like the idea of the shimmer lotion and the mud mask. I actually love mud masks and I've found one I love that is like $1.25 at Target called Que Bella. It comes in just a packet and I've gotten like 4 uses out of it. I just put it in a ziploc so it doesn't dry out. Anyway, I love masks. :) Sorry about the fragrance. It does look like one little drop! Also, how do you do the collage with all the photos? Hope you had a great weekend! <3

    1. I know right I think that's just way too many! Yeah I spilled a lot of that lotion all over me when I got it open so I'm going to depot the rest into to something lol.

      I story boarded the pictures in PSE using basic shapes and a clipping mask, I got into doing that a few weeks ago it actually really easy and quite fun!

  9. Well, I think you got a pretty good box with the Ahava mud mask and the lippies. I think the colors are actually really pretty and I think you should wear them, dent or not :)

  10. I'm jealous of your Ahava mask! I'm curious about that perfume, too...I would have love to have gotten it. I love Eau Flirt, but I already own half of what Harvey Prince makes, lol.
