I loved every single thing in my Birchbox this month!

Products in the box:

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream, Full Size $20, Sample Value $2.95

Which Shave Crave Shaving Cream, Full Size $20, Sample

This is a Birchbox exclusive shave cream. I got the scent Acai Grapefruit and it smells amazing! But at $20 for a shaving cream, it better be life changing!

Update: This smells so good. It reminds me of the eos shave lotion. You need a good amount of product to cover your legs. I’m going to guess that the sample has 2-4 uses, depending on how much you use. Other than the smell, the product was forgettable. It didn’t do anything amazing for my legs. In fact, I like the eos better for this lotion shave type of product.

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvinator, Full size $34, Sample Value $5.66

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvinator

I am excited to use this! It smells pretty good too. I was disappointed with the Suki exfoliating cleanser I got in my July box so I hope this one performs well!

Update: This product felt like the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion without the warm feeling. It was a great exfoliator nad left my face feeling clean, but not stripped or tight. It really doesn’t have a scent. I still like the Suki exfoliating cleanser better, but this one did perform really well.

Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris, Full size $110 for 3.4oz, Sample Value $2.26

This smells lovely. Its sweetly floral. Right up my alley. This will no doubt appear in an empties video soon.

theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac, Full Size $17, Sample Value $2.26

theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac

This is the sample I chose this month. The color is Beauty Queen. I’ve heard a lot about this stain but I’ve never tried it.

ModelCo Shimmer Bronzer, Full Size $22, Sample Value $7.54

ModelCo Shimmer Bronzer

This will be a good all over bronzer during my summer tan. It will be too dark for me in the colder months and since it’s shimmery, not good for contouring. However, the color is pretty and it does have a soft texture. It is a bit orangier than I usually like, but not so much that I won’t use it.

Birchbox costs $10 a month. This month the total box value was $20.67. I am excited about all of the products. There isn’t anything I won’t use! Great month Birchbox!
