This month, Birchbox teamed up with Glamour to create this sample box inspired by the 5 senses, which is also the theme for this month's Glamour Magazine.
The icons next to each item on the list above indicate which of the five senses the product represents. I think it is a fun theme.
Ada Cosmetics: Bronzer (color: Golden) - 1 gram - I usually use a matte bronzer, but I can appreciate a shimmer bronzer now and then. This one is nice. It definitely gives a golden glow without leaning too orange. I tried this as an eyeshadow, too and I really liked it. I will probably get more use out of it that way. - Full Size 3 grams $12.45
Stila: Lip Glaze (color: Lights) - .05 fl.oz. - I love Stila Lip Glazes and this really made the box for me this month. It is a beautiful nude, shimmery gloss and this is exactly the sort of gloss I love wearing in the summer. It is a thicker, sticky gloss, but I forgive that because it makes it last longer on my lips. - Full Size set of 3 $12
|Ada Bronzer & Stila Lip Glaze|
Gloss Moderne: High Gloss Masque - no size indicated (2 uses for my long hair) - This masque smelled like cocoa butter, which I liked. I applied a generous amount to my hair and left it in for about 5 minutes before rinsing. I let my hair air dry overnight (I hate the blow drier in the summer) and my hair was silky soft. It even smelled slightly cocoa butter-ish all day long. This was a very nice treat for my dry hair! - Full Size 4oz. $39
Harvey Prince: Hello - spray sample vial - I am never thrilled to see another perfume vial sample. That said, I do like that this is in a spray bottle and although the size is not specified, it does look a teensy bit bigger that the average sample vial. The scent? Fruity, floral, sweet and bright. I love this fragrance for summer! It is a strong scent but the notes are light and sweet so it is not overpowering for the hot, humid summer months. I love it! - Full Size 50ml $55
Larabar: Uber - 1 bar .82 oz. - These sort of bars are not usually my thing, but this was yummy! I got the Bananas Foster flavor. Very natural tasting, but still flavorful. They have an Apple Turnover flavor that I may add to my shopping list. It is a nice healthy, natural little snack. I like this lifestyle extra. - Full Size box of 5 $12.69
Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds - I can always use a back up set of earbuds. I'm not sure about the neon color for me, but they are on trend for this summer!
I liked this month's box. I enjoyed all the products, but the surprising stand out was the Harvey Prince Hello fragrance. I am very excited to get the full size. I may also pick up the Stila Lip Glaze trio. I really love those lip glosses!
