July 2014 Birchbox

*Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links



This month's box was a bit different and I really liked the design. It also came with blue wrapping paper. I like to keep these boxes to store the products in.











I was excited as always to receive my Birchbox. This month's theme for July 2014 was Power up and Birchbox teamed up with Women's Health. The box came with a booklet on tips for staying healthy and a one year subscription to Women's health. However, I will forgo the subscription as I am not a huge fan of receiving paper magazines. I used to get them all the time but, they take up space. I would much rather order the digital copy of the magazine. I am not sure that is an option so I will have to look into that. 




There where lots of great products this month and products I will use. 

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk:
I haven't tried this product yet but I am a big fan of dry shampoos. My hair is really thin and does not have much volume and get's oily really fast. Especially in the summer months. So, I always like to use dry shampoo to give my hair a bit of lift. I have heard oat is really good for the skin and hair. So, I am excited to try this product. 

NAOBAY Body radiance Lotion: 
This smells good. It has more of a natural clean smell. It also smells a bit spicy like ginger and lemon. I haven't tried this yet as I still have another lotion I am using that I really want to use up first. I think this is a generous size because I got another size like this in my Birchbox about two months ago and am still using it. Between my Ipsy and Birchbox I am well stocked up on lotion and perfume. 

Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner- Raina:
This is a beautiful Royal blue color. I am excited about this product because I don't have an eyeliner color like this. I have a greenish aqua blue with shimmer which I really like. I like that this is a pencil and more matte looking. 

Vasanti Cosmetics Detox Rich Purifying Facial Cleanser:
I tried this product as I was out of a facial cleanser. It did leave my face feeling clean. It goes on more like a lotion and does not really suds up. It did not seem to remove all my makeup though. So, I would suggest using a makeup remover and then using this product. I am going to try and use it that way. It definitely has a clean soap smell to it.

100% Pure Gingerade Shower Gel:
This was marked as being an extra. I did not open them as they are in two foil packets. I had hoped these packets would be bigger but they are the size of ketchup packets. When I use them I imagine I will need to use both packets. I haven't tried it yet as I am actually not a huge fan of body washes. I want to try to use them more but I have very sensitive skin so I'm a bit cautious when it comes to trying new things. I usually use a hypoallergenic soap. I have used Fresh detox body milk bath in the past and liked that. So, I wonder if this will be similar to that product.


 

Overall, I was very pleased with my Box. This is my third Birchbox and I always enjoy getting this box and will continue to get it. I just wish I got more makeup although getting the body products is not bad and I will eventually use them. Birchbox is $10 dollars a month and is a monthly subscription box.
