August Birchbox

Wow, I cannot believe I’m already writing my August Birchbox Unboxing. August? Already? Gosh, where did the time go? 


This month I actually chose the curated box. This is my first time ever choosing the curated box. I loved almost every product inside this box and so I figured why not? Inside I recieved: 

  • Stila stay all day liquid lipstick in Patina. 
  • Living Proof No Frizz nourishing oil. 
  • HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder. 
  • Acure Organics Coconut & Argan Oil Cleansing Towelettes. 
  • Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow. 
  • Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle. 


This being my fifth Birchbox, I think it has been my best one ever recieved. I’m so happy with it and I think Birchbox redeemed themselves! Yay, go Birchbox! 

Did you get Birchbox this month? What did you recieve?

XOXO,

July Birchbox

Hello lovelies! I hope you all are having a wonderful day! If not, I hope your day gets better 🙂 

Yesterday I recieved my Birchbox in the mail. To my surprise, it was actually good this month! Thank you Birchbox for surprising me and giving me a better box. 


The first thing I saw when I opened my box was this Marcelle micellar water. This was a free gift for re-subscribing. This is a pretty great size for a sample, I’m very happy with it. 


I also recieved in my Birchbox:

  • Balance Me face mask, suitable for all skin types. The full size costs $34. I don’t think I would buy the full size because of costs but it’s a fun thing to recieve in a box. 
  • Another Marcelle micellar water, nope I’m not complaining. I’m actually happy about it. I like micellar waters for removing makeup. This full sized costs $21. 
  • MDSolarSciences Mineral Cream. I feel eh about this product, it’s a face product and I’m always afraid to branch out and try new things but who knows right? The full size costs $30. 
  • Raw Spirit fragrances perfume sample. I’m actually happy that this sample is a spray bottle and not one of those open caps. I love the spray ones because you can carry them in your purse. The full size costs $40-$90. 
  • Lastly I recieved Smashbox X-Rated mascara. I’m super excited about this. Yes Birchbox! So happy to recieve some smashbox in this months box. The full size costs $22. 

Overall I’m happy that I stuck with Birchbox this month, hopefully they’re consistent next month! Thanks for reading! 

XOXO, 

Ashley

Walmart vs. Target beauty box


This month was my first month ever recieving the Walmart and Target beauty box. If any of you do not know, Walmart sends their boxes out every season for only a $5 shipping fee and Target varies… this month it was $7. Target releases their boxes each month and they are hard to get so when they are released you need to grab them quick! 


The Walmart beauty box was packed full of goodies this month. In the box was:

  • Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant toothpaste (clean and fresh). 
  • Schwarzkopf essence ultĂ®me shampoo and conditioner for colored or highlighted hair. 
  • Jergens Natural Glow daily moisturizer. 
  • Sally Hansen airbrushed legs in the color medium. 
  • InCoco nail strips in a black lace color. 
  • Goody slideproof hair elastics in a pack of 8. 

This box really surprised me. I actually really like everything that came inside this box. The Jergens moisturizer was a pretty great size, it will last a while. The hair elastics are expensive themselves, so that’s great to recieve in a $5 box. Overall I’m very impressed. 


The Target beauty box was pretty great this month too, it was worth the $7 spent. Inside was:

  • Toms of Maine toothpaste. 
  • Dove regenerative shampoo and conditioner. 
  • Garnier clearly brighter daily moisturizer. 
  • Sweet spot on the go wipettes x3.
  • Umberto lifting powder. 
  • NYX butter lipstick in the color Fun Size. 

Overall the Target box was a steal for the price. A NYX butter lipstick itself costs $5.99! The lifting powder is a pretty generous size, my mom will really enjoy this. The wipes are great and the shampoo is perfect for traveling. 

If I had to choose, I would pick the Walmart beauty box this month! The Walmart box just really caught my attention and I loved more things from it than I do with the Target box. 

XOXO,

Ashley
