birchbox is a monthly service that delivers deluxe beauty samples right to your mailbox each month. there are several different varieties that go out each month so not everyone gets the same thing. one of my best friends just signed up and the only thing we got the same this month was the extra item (which was the laundress wool & cashmere shampoo). so i always love to see what others get in their birchbox’s! mine included:

amika obliphica hair treatment-versatile hair oil that can be used on damp or dry hair, adds manageability, shine and it smells good too!

anastasia hydrafull lipgloss-this plush gloss plumps and hydrates lips and adds a peachy sheen.

clark’s botanicals intense radiance mask-the solution to dull, congested skin. this white clay mask detoxifies pores, conquers blemishes, and even calms irritations.

laura geller spackle tinted under makeup primer in bronze-this hydrating primer gives you a flawless foundation for makeup plus a subtle glow.

EXTRA item: the laundress wool & cashmere shampoo-each month birchbox comes with an “extra” item and this time it’s is a sample of an elegant detergent for your delicate sweaters.

and the winner for my favorite product this month is the amika hair oil! i absolutely LOVE the scent. i even have moroccan oil light which i also like but i think this one takes the cake. and i have fine hair and it doesn’t weigh it down. then i’d have to say the spackle takes a close second. i have tried SEVERAL primers (although none of them had a tint to them) and this one is light and has a nice very light glow/shimmer to it. as you guys know, i am not really a lipgloss girl so i wasn’t huge on the anastasia gloss. i have been trying too many creams on my skin lately so i haven’t given the clark’s botanicals mask a try yet. but i am looking forward to using the laundress detergent this fall.

if you haven’t signed up for birchbox yet, what are YOU waiting for? it’s only $10/mo and the best part is you can cancel anytime. you can see my previous reviews here and here. it’s so much fun! =)

    My birchbox was totally different from yours – it’s always fun to read about other people’s birchboxes! 🙂

    I got similar stuff to your box. The amika, the laundry sample (though mine was for delicates), and the spackle tint. Glad for your review since I haven’t tried it yet, but might tote it in my travels in a few weeks.

    There was a lip product in mine: Befine Lip Serum. I am not a huge lip COLOR person, but I get really dry lips, so I am always looking for something to keep it looking pretty. This stuff was AMAZING. — I just wanted to post my review since it had a different product! 🙂
