Birchbox Review July 2014

This month’s Birchbox was a little better than last month. I got two products I was excited about.

Birchbox July 2014

Products in this box:

Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Mask, Retail Value $25.95 for 4oz, Sample size, two at .5oz each, $6.48

Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Mask

This is the 3rd Beauty Protector product I have gotten in Birchboxes and I have loved the last 2 quite a lot. This smells wonderful and I can’t wait to try it.

LAQA & Co Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Bees Knees (Coral) Full Size, Retail Value $18

LAQA Lip Lube

This is a beautiful coral color and is supposed to be a lip treatment too. It feels great going on but doesn’t have much lasting power. Most lip balms don’t. I will get a lot of use out of this! It’s a perfect summer color.

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion, Retail Value $24 for 250ml, Sample size 30ml, Value $2.88

Naoby Body Radiance Lotion

I love the way the full size packaging looks, but I hate this smell.  It’s avocado and olive oil. It is a very light watery lotion that is natural and organic. I tried it, but the smell is just not good for me. I had to wash it off before I could really give you a good idea if it was at least a good lotion. Did anyone else try it? What did you think?

suki exfoliate foaming cleanser, Retail Value $32.95 for 4oz, Sample .2oz, Value $$1.64

suki exfoliate foaming cleanser

This is a combo cleanser and exfoliant with a lemony smell. I would love to try this, but unfortunately, my sample is completely dried out and hard as a rock. Check out the video for full details. I did e-mail Birchbox and they are sending a replacement. It did smell good when I scratched at it.

Skyn Iceland Hydro Firming Eye Gels, Retail Value $30 for 8 pairs, Sample 1 pair, Value $3.75

Skyn Iceland Hydro Firming Eye Gels

This was considered a beauty extra, but was worth more than a couple other products in the box. These say they are safe for sensitive skin and hydrate and refresh stressed under eye skin. I am excited to try these.

Birchbox Cost $10

Box Value $32.75

Overall, this box is ok. I love the lip balm and the hair mask. The lotion smells horrible and the cleanser is hard as a rock. So really half and half this month.
