August 2011 Birchbox

I always look forward to finding my Birchbox in the mail each month, however I was pretty disappointed with the contents of my box this month.  Perhaps I have been spoiled with the full size products that I have received in past months, but this was definitely my least favorite box that I have received so far.   

If you would like to see blog posts on my past Birchboxes just click the following links 
 ------> July   -   June   -    May   -   April

Typically I would use the card that Birchbox provides in their boxes to describe each of the products that were included.  However, this month the card I found in my box did not match up with the products that I received.

Card does not match up with the products :/


1.  Tocca Eau de Parfum - Stella and Cleopatra

"Stella is infused with the slightly sweet, never bitter, and always fresh scent of blood orange. With its origins coming from 17th Century Sicily, the blood orange is harmonious with Tocca's philosophy of combining the best of old world traditions with modern influences." - Sephora.com

"Cleopatra is infused with the crisp, fresh scent of juicy grapefruit and soothing cucumber. This almond oil-enriched bath and body collection is perfect for cooling the skin - and soothing mind and body." - Sephora.com

Sample Size: .05 fl oz
Full Size: 1.7 fl oz
Full Size Price: $68.00

2.  Lift Lab - Lift & Fix High Potency Solution

"LIFTLAB designed this superhero product to do two main things. It reinforces the skin’s ability to protect against premature signs of aging and environmental aggressors. It also provides quick relief for the redness and irritation that can result from UV rays and cosmetic procedures" -Birchbox.com

Full Size: 3.4 fl oz
Full Size Price:  $85.00

3.  Carol's Daughter - Monoi Repairing Hair Mask

"A luxurious, deeply penetrating, reparative conditioning treatment. This conditioner works on hair fibers to create a stronger, smoother, silkier, and shinier finish." - Sephora.com

Sample Size: .71 oz
Full Size: 7 oz
Full Size Price: $29.00 

4.  Blinc - Eyeliner

"Blinc Liquid Eyeliner is the first and only liquid eyeliner that forms a water-resistant "layer of color" that binds to the lash line to provide a dramatic look and unparalleled hold. A lot of warm water and gentle pressure is all it takes for Blinc Liquid Eyeliner to peel off effortlessly (like a second skin) without leaving any residue." - Sephora.com

Sample Size: .02 oz
Full Size: .21 oz
Full Size Price: $24.00

Birchbox also includes an extra/fun product in their boxes and this month was a hair tie by the company Twistband. 

"This soft elastic gives the hair tie a sophisticated makeover - it looks as good on your wrist as it does in your hair"

Would you have known what this was just by the photo?  I didn't.  I actually almost threw it away because I thought it was just some extra decoration that ended up at the bottom of my box by mistake.  I only ended up saving it because everyone gets the same bonus product, so it was listed on the card that I had received in my birchbox.  

Sample Size: 1 hair tie
Full Size: Set of 3
Full Size Price: $5.00
