July 2016 Birchbox Review

*Spoiler Alert! I’m showcasing the July 2106 Birchbox today.


I love the pretty colored box and seeing as how I save boxes I may need to add on to my house to store them.


Here’s what I got in the July 2016 Birchbox!

The Birchbox subscription is $10/month and you get a card with 6 items.


Shiseido ULTIMUNE Power Infusing Concentrate – Back in the 80’s they sold Shisedio at the make-up counter at May Co. and I loved it. So it was great to be reintroduced to the product today. This cream smells really nice and claims to improve your skin so I’m definitely excited about giving it a try.


Shisedio ULTIMUNE Eye – You also get a “one use” sample of ULTIMUNE eye which I can’t wait to try.


Coola Sport SPF Classic Sunscreen in Fresh Mango – I’m excited to try out this organic sunscreen as I have such a problem with any sunscreen. It smells really nice, like suncreen mixed with mango. It’s hypo-allergenic and water resistant so I’m hoping to have a great experience with it.


Smashbox X-Rated Mascara – This high-end super volume mascara is a nice addition to my collection. Gives me huge lashes without clumping.


Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – This is an interesting product that says you can spray it on your hair to absorb oil and impurities. It has a nice smell (it’s Sea Buckthorn Berry) but I’m not a huge fan of aerosol sprays so I’m not sure how much I’d use this but it’s a neat idea. They do have a really artsy website!


Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35+ – The final product is from Supergoop. This CC Cream goes on really smooth and feels light on my skin. I’ll absolutely use up this sample.

Overall I’m happy with the July Birchbox. I give it a 9 only because I probably won’t use the aerosol hair spray.

    You got some good stuff. I wish I got that dry shampoo!


  2. I’ve heard good things about Amika’s dry shampoo – you should definitely give a try!

    I have that Sheseido eye concentrate – it’s okay, I don’t really feel like it does anything. But that’s just me, I rarely find that eye creams do anything. At least the packaging is pretty? 😉

  3. The dry shampoo is amazing and the Coola sunscreen smells SOOOO good!
