“As summer peaks (temp-wise a d watermelon consumption wise), we’re taking advantage of every last minute. That means embracing air-dried hair, ensuring our skincare is SPF-heavy and keeping our makeup minimal. Here’s to making the most of summer’s last gasp.”
Woot! Its August which means two things, one its my two year anniversary with Birchbox, that’s a total of 24 boxes folks, and unfortunately August means summer is pretty much over. The Great Minnesota Get Together aka the state fair is in full swing, school buses are zooming down the road, and road construction is giving us its last blast of torture. On the bright side I still have my beloved Birchbox, two years of surprises and oh no they sent me that! I love getting Birchbox and get excited every month when I can unlock it to see what the mailman will be bringing me.
This month’s box is super gosh darn cute! I am loving the 3D feel of the box and it makes me just want to jump right in the pool. The pool is fake, well played Birchbox, well played! Anyways I am soaking in the last few days of summer sunshine, winter will be here before I know it. Damn winter always comes way to fucking soon, we barely get fall here in Minnesota, winter is a cheater. Cheaters never win. Enough of this crazy winter talk, lets talk about the good stuff, you know the samples!!
“Lady! What did you get in your Soak it up Birchbox!?”
Soak It UP – August 2015
Air Repair Complexion Boosting Moisturizer: Packed with antioxidants and humectacts, this rich cream hydrates and revitalize dry dull skin.
—————————–> This was my sample choice item for the month of August, I am always in the market for trying out a new facial moisturizer. This one was just meh, it really didn’t do anything for me.
Curly Hair Solutions Silk Leave in Conditioner: This detangling treatment smooths strands to leave curls soft and frizz free, even in humidity.
——————————-> I am not a leave in product kind of girl so this one is going into the gift pile. I have a curly haired friend who will love this sample.
LAQA & Co Charm School Kit: This creamy crayon delivers a rich, easy to apply color for both lips and cheeks.
——————————>I received the sample in Cray Cray which is an apricot hue, that hue does not place well with pale freckled children, so it is a miss for me.
R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo: Style-refreshing spray saps excess oil, gives hair volume and body, and adds tousled texture.
—————————->The packaging alone is so pretty, it has a water color type painting of the desert on the can. The spay smells really good, is light weight, and sops up oil just like it claims.
Supergood Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream SPF 37: This treatment reduces dark circles, depuffs under eye bag, blocks UV rays and minimizes lines.
—————————> I love any product that depuffs and lightens my dark raccoon bags, plus this has sun screen in it too boot. That is an a plus in my book.
This box wasn’t the greatest and it wasn’t bad either. It was just sort of kind of meh for me. I will use all of the products except for the cray cray lip color. I hope you loved everything in your box this month!
