August Birchbox | Mini Review

Beauty, Lifestyle

Hello, Damsels!

It’s J & M’s favorite part of the month: BIRCHBOX TIME! This month we received some awesome goodies that we want to share with you all! This months box was all about summer fun! The products we received are items that are a summer-must-have! During summer it is important to protect our skin and our hair from damage caused by the sun and other extraneous activities.


It is important to use a makeup remover that won’t put more damage on your skin. With any purchase of Marchelle products, you can get an exclusive FREE full size bottle of Marcelle Gentle Make-Up Remover just by using the code: MAKEUPREMOVER on
