August 2014 Birchbox

* Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links

 I was excited as always to get my August Birchbox. Birchbox is a monthly subscription box service that sends you 4-5 beauty samples every month for $10 dollars.

I admit I peeked at my box before getting it. So, it was not a surprise. I love my box this month. 



Harvey Prince Ageless body creme:
I am a huge fan of Harvey Prince. I love his perfume and so I am really excited about trying the body creme. It came in this adorable Fushia container. It contains pink grapefruit, vanilla, and shea butter. It smells amazing! it reminds me of Bubble bath.





Laura Geller Beauty Cool lids cream Eyeshadow:
This month we had a chance to pick what we wanted to add to our box. We also got this opportunity last month but I missed out on it. This month I picked my product early to make sure I would get it. I have heard of Laura Geller products but never had the chance to try them before. I got the silver eyeshadow in Silver Sands. I wanted this because first of all I've only tried one other cream eyeshadow. Secondly, I don't have any silver eyeshadow. I love this color! it is shimmery but not glittery. It doesn't make me look like I'm going to a disco ball. I wore it during the day and I think it flattered my outfit. You can also transition this to a night out on the town. It lasted all day as well without having to touch it up. 




Neil George Shampoo and Conditioner:
 I normally am not a fan of getting shampoo and conditioners in my Birchbox. To me that is something I would rather choose myself. At least Birchbox sent a good size sample and forgone those awful foil packets. It has a nice clean scent and is not overpowering. I hate shampoos that smell like perfume. 



Nugg Beauty Revitalizing mask:
I am actually excited about trying this product. I am not a big mask person. I have a very simple skincare routine. It's pretty much washing my face and putting on a moisturizer. I don't like using too many products on my face because of my sensitive skin. So, I will have to see how this fares with my skin.



*I purchase this product myself and pay for it with my own money. If you decide to use my link to sign up I get points awarded to me which I can choose to use for future purchases. You don't have to use my link but I would appreciate if you chose to do so. All opinions are my own.
