my first Birchbox but I have to say, if it hadn't been for this box, I probably would have quit my subscription all together. So, what was in my August Birchbox? Let's take a peak!
So, I am in love with this sultry scent--If it wasn't for the high ticket price ($110 full size) I would wear this every single day but I'm okay with spritzing it on for special occasions. Also, Hansen wanted me to mention that he loves the way I smell--it's tantalizing!
+ModelCo | Shimmer Bronzer
A good bronzer is always tough to find, at least in my mind so I wasn't going to get too excited if this bronzer wasn't going to workout. But this one knocked it out of the ball park! The color works great for contouring as well as an overall glow. So, if you are interested in an affordable bronzer that delivers a beautiful glow and handles all your contouring woes, ModelCo is definitely a bronzer to checkout.
+theBalm cosmetics | Stainiac in Beauty Queen
As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'm not a huge fan of stains. So I wasn't jumping up and down for joy when I opened up my box to find theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen. As most stains do, this one stings a little during the initial application. The application is light and subtle, the color is vibrant but isn't my personal favorite. I'm neither here nor there about this product, but if you are an avid stain advocate, it is definitely worth trying!
+Vasanti Cosmetics | BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
I'm always on the hunt for a great exfoliator. One of my personal favorites is Soap and Glory's Greatest Scrub of All Face Exfoliator. It is auh-mazing but finding it can be a real pain. Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator isn't my favorite but it does everything it promises. My skin was bright and glowing with a smooth finish, the only reason why I would say it wasn't my absolute favorite was the texture of the face wash didn't fit my personal preference. Other than that, it did a great job of glowing and soft skin!
+Whish | Shave Crave Shaving Cream - Acai Grapefruit
First and foremost, this product smells incredible! If they produce a lotion with this smell, I'll probably go on buying overload because it smells that good! While the concept of this shaving cream is great, it isn't the easiest to use if you are in a hurry to get your shaving done! I would definitely use this in the future for a relaxing night of pampering but not on a daily basis. Overall, a wonderful product and worth all the hype!
