Birch Box: July

I know I’m a little late with this post but I had to share! My July Birch Box!! If you don't know what a Birch Box is, its a monthly subscription where they send you deluxe size samples of random high end beauty products for $10 a month. You never know what your going to receive until 

you open your box, its like x-mas every month! When you sign up, they ask you a series of questions that will help them determine what they will send you each month. Your earn points for every order, for rating products and referring friends who sign up. These points will get you a discount on any items you liked in you box and want to get a full size of on the Birch Box website I love trying new beauty products so I was so thrilled to discover this service. This months Birch Box theme was Cynthia Rowley! The fashion designer and Exhibition A co-founder selected her favorite products and boxed them up for us to try.

In my box this month:
Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist
Korres Showergel
Philosophy Purity Made Simple One Step Facial Cleanser
PUR Mineral 4-in1 Pressed Foundation with SPF  (It was to dark for my skin tone =0( noooo!)

I haven’t had a chance to try anything but the PUR pressed powder. I’ll post reviews once I do.


  1. So did you use the Philosophy cleanser yet? I loved it so much I had to get it. Unfortunately it came with a 32 dollar price tag for a 16 oz bottle. I did some googling and found it at drugstore.com for 20% off and free shipping (score!). So I didn't get the loyalty points from Birch Box but I did save around 7 dollars.

  2. Yay! I have tried it a few times but Im afraid to stop using my Proactive and start breaking out lol. I use it every once in a while when I had alot of makeup on as kind of like a pre wash to get any makeup residue off before I use the Proactive. Its seems really good tho, its very gentle but it still feels like it cleans. It would take u either 100 or 500 dollars spent at Sephora to get a prize anyway, thats alot of money! lol
