July Birchbox Review

I love getting these things!
So here's a look at my July Birchbox. I wish they'd stop sending me lotions and face wash, and start sending more makeup/fragrance samples. I hate the boxes where its not makeup. I signed up because they were makeup samples... then it started to switch up on me!? Hopefully next month will go back to makeup. 
But I have to say, I do like the face wash I got this month. It was gentle enough to use on my face after a long weekend in Rocky Point (Puerto Pensaco), Mexico last weekend!  
Here's what I got...



Let's take a closer look!
 The first sample is 100% Pure Gingerade Shower Gel (Full size price is $15). 
I have to say, this smells lovely, and lathers well. It made my sun kissed skin feel nice and smooth and helped me feel cleansed after a day at the beach and in the sea water and pool.


 This is Body Radiance Lotion from Naobay (full size price $24). It uses olive oil and avocado to naturally hydrate and soften skin. It really made my skin feel great. I really love it... Do I love it enough to buy a whole bottle? Maybe.. 

This is the face wash I mentioned in the beginning. It is Detox Nutrient-Rich Purifying Facial Cleanser from Vasanti Cosmetics (full size price $24). Its sulfate free and gently clears pores without overdrying the face. Which was perfect for my skin while on vacation since it was sunkissed, and I use that term lightly because I was on the brink of burn. This cleanser was gentle enough to not hurt or dry out my skin, which was fabulous. My skin feels nice and soft afterwards!


 This is Klorane brand Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk (full size $18). I haven't had a chance to use this one yet. It absorbs the grease and gives you bounce in between washes.You're supposed to spray 10 inches away from roots, then after two minutes brush it out to distibute powder. I plan on using this (can this be taken on a plane?).

This is the Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner in Raina (full size $11). Its a navy blue, and its a nice, smooth application. It's a soft wax pencil and it delivers a rich, long lasting color that won't irritate eyes. I love the color on my eyes, and different from the typcial black that I wear when I wear eyeliner. I like the pop of color. I have worn bright/neon colors before in the past, but never thought of a navy color like this. I like!!! 


This box also came with a free 1 year subscription to Womens Day Magazine. That's a $12 value, and the monthly cost of this box is $10, so that's a great deal! 

So tell me, will you, or are you, subscribing?
