July’s Birchbox packaging was absolutely stunning this month and perfect for summertime! J and M are super excited to share with you the products we received in our monthly box! We also want to share with you a little review of what we think about a few of the products we’ve had a chance to try out!
You all have to check out Benefit Cosmetic’s new Killer Colors collection in the They’re Real line! Colored mascara or eyeliner is a great way to spice up any summer look without caking on too much makeup in the heat! We were lucky enough to receive a coupon for a free sample of They’re Real mascara or eyeliner with any Benefit purchase on Birchbox.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray | Full Size $42 | Shop Here
Product Description: Part dry shampoo, part texturizer, this spray is perfect for giving your hair a fresh, clean feeling, while adding a bit of a hold to keep everything in place. Unlike most dry shampoos, this dry texturizing spray will not leave any powdery residue behind!
COOLA Cucumber Face Moisturizer | Full Size $32 | Shop Here
Product Description: This sunblock has an SPF of 30. It’s lightweight, skin-balancing formula and refreshing cucumber scent is perfect for daily use.
Stila Look At Me Liquid Lipstick in Venezia | Full Size, $20 | Shop Here
Mini Review: Venezia is a very beautiful coral color, however, I do not think it pairs well with my skin tone. This is the first liquid lipstick I have ever tried and although I’m not a huge fan of the color I absolutely love how long it lasted on my lips! Let’s just say it is practically a lip stain!
dr. brandt microdermabrasion skin exfoliant | Full Size $78 | Shop Here
Mini Review: Many exfoliators that I have tried leave my face feeling dry after I use them. This exfoliant has a very lovely citrus scent and left my skin feeling smooth and refreshed. The price tag of the full size is a little pricey but I found that a little product goes a long way with this exfoliant!
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara | Full Size $24 | Shop Here
Mini Review: I was so excited when I got this sample, I have heard so many great things about this mascara! It added both length and volume to my lashes and it doesn’t clump. This mascara is a fantastic product!

Coola Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30 | Full Size, $36 | Shop Here
Product Description: Matte, spray formula sets your makeup and reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while protecting your skin from harmful sunrays.
Stila Look At Me Liquid Lipstick in Bella| Full Size, $20 | Shop Here
Mini Review: In love with this liquid lipstick! I recently wore this color to an outdoor concert and it stayed put the entire night through the heat, drinking, and singing! Check my instagram to see the amazing pigmentation! The only downside to this product is the weird, thick feeling some matte, liquid lipsticks can leave on your lips. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product!
Dr. Jart+ Premium BB Cream SPF 45 | Full Size, $39 | Shop Here
Mini Review: This BB cream has great pigmentation and has not caused my sensitive skin to break out yet.
Harvey Prince Fragrance in Hello | Full Size, $26 | Shop Here
Mini Review: This fragrance is described on Birchbox’s website as ‘an energizing mix of citrus (top notes of Meyer lemon and Satsuma mandarin) and floral notes (summer forsythia and pink plumeria traditionally found in Hawaiian leis) that will keep you optimistic even when you get up on the wrong side of the bed. I am definitely considering buying the full size of this fragrance because I think its the perfect summer scent, day or night!
Rusk Heatshift Re-Styling Cream | Full Size, $18 | Shop Here
Product Description: Allows you to restyle your hair without the need to wash your hair or reapply other products. Also, it reduces the time needed to blow dry and style your hair, in half!
