Review - July 2017 Birchbox


Welcome to the July 2017 Birchbox review! We had some hiccups in our months for July and August which is why I am just now getting this review up. However, this is still a good way to get a look at what comes in a Birchbox month's subscription box, as well as seeing an actual review of the products. I don't find unveilings to be super helpful as they do just show you what's in it, not how they work. *AS A REMINDER, YOU CAN OFTEN FIND THESE PRODUCTS CHEAPER ON OTHER SITES. I HAVE AMAZON PRIME SO I SAVE A BUNCH OF MONEY AND DON'T PAY SHIPPING BY ORDERING THROUGH AMAZON. EBAY IS ANOTHER SITE TO CHECK AS THEY HAVE LISTINGS THAT CHANGE DAILY.*

So let's get started!

This month we received 5 products total. Occasionally Birchbox will send an extra sample, but they did not this month. To start with, we have Benefit Cosmetics the POREfessional Face Primer in a 0.25oz sample size. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING! I love it! I've already purchased a full size product because it is so amazing! My skin looked smooth and my pores were almost unnoticeable. On top of that, my skin was smooth and it worked very well as a primer under my makeup. I even used it on a no makeup day and I still loved how it worked without makeup! Run to the stores and buy this! Better yet, order it online so you don't have to run anywhere!

You can find it at Birchbox.
You can also find it on Amazon.


Next up we have Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray in a 1oz sample size. This I was not impressed with. There was no hold and no waves... This beach hair was super lacking in all the waviness. Maybe it's my hair type, but for me it did not do much of anything beside make my hair sticky.

The third product in this box was Air Repair Complexion Boosting Moisturizer in a .34fl oz sample size. This product I liked because I felt my skin was noticeably softer after using it. So soft that I had to touch my skin again just to make sure I wasn't imagining it. I have been working hard on my skincare regimen lately so this moisturizer fit nicely into the mix. I use it in the mornings after washing my face and it looks and feels really nice after.

Next up we have The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes Waterproof Mascara in a .14oz size. I'm not sure if this is a sample size or not because the full size is listed as .71oz but this mascara is really big for a sample size. The mascara itself IS waterproof. It is also sweatproof. I used it through my workout today and it held up with sweat dripping down my eyes. Now, it does not do major eye lash boosting. So your eye lashes won't look like falsies. But it does give them good color and it is waterproof and sweatproof. I haven't received many great mascara samples from Birchbox but this was by far the best I've received so far. And again, it looks like a full size tube to me which is really nice to see. I hate teeny tiny samples that make you feel cheated.

You can find it at Birchbox.
You can also find it on the Beauty Crop site.


Our last sample is Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Gel Eye Makeup Remover in a .23oz sample size. This is one of those teeny tiny samples. However - you don't need much! I used only about a pea sized amount for each eye and it worked well. Both my eyeshadow and my Beauty Crop mascara came off pretty easily. I lost 2 eyelashes in the process, but I may have been rubbing too hard. The mascara came off really well and very quickly. One of the most important steps in having healthy eye lashes it to remove your mascara at night. This product helps do that in an easy way.

July's Birthbox was surprisingly good. I have not been impressed with my boxes much the last few months but I was really pleased with this box! I liked almost all of my samples which is RARE for a Birchbox. The POREfessional Face Primer is my recommended must buy in full size from this box! I love this stuff! I used it once and went online to order the full size, it's just that good.
