August Birchbox with Hits and Misses

Wow! I'm really late with getting this post up. Wanted to share with you the items that I got in my August Birchbox. I was quite pleased with this box. I have got good use out of 2 of the products and the others were mostly misses for me.

First thing out of my box that I have got a lot of use out of is the Miss Jessie's Original Stretch Silkening Creme. This curl-enhancing cream stretches out each follicle for looser curls while adding volume and shine. Hydrolyzed wheat proteins and wheat amino acids fortify hair, while a team of moisturizing oils including coconut, jojoba, avocado, and olive add silkiness and softness. I don't know if this product really helps out with my curls, but I love to use it when I pull my hair back in a pony tail to smooth out all the little short hairs that like to stick out everywhere. I will be taking this product to the beach with me next week! The 'sample' that I received was 2 ounces, which retails for $7.99 on the Miss Jessie's Website.

The next product that I've got a lot of use out of is the
Schick Hydro Silk Razor. This razor has five blades and The water-activated moisturizing serum has marine extracts and shea butter and hydrates your skin. This razor retails fro $9.99

I also received a sample of Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream, which is a product from Japan. This product can be used on your body or your lips. Great for really dry patches of skin. It has a natural formula so it does not contain any artificial dyes, fragrances or petrolatum. The only thing that I do not like about this product is the smell. It has camphor in it, and I personally just don't like that smell. Yu-Be retails for $16 for a 1.25 oz tube.

I also received a sample of Viva La Juicy La Fleur. I have not worn this product yet since I am still trying to get my sinuses back to normal :/

There was also a full size Pixi Product in my box, it's the Pixi Beauty Lip and Line. First off I don't ever use lip liner, so this product was already half a miss for me. Then the color made it a total miss, the color I got was Orchid Rose, which to me looks brown, not a color that I will be wearing.

Did you get an August Birchbox? What were your hits and misses?


  1. That lip liner is really an odd color! I don't use a lip liner either...I suppose I SHOULD but I would like a clear/nude one that would match my lip color. These colored liners always seem to really stick out against lipsticks, even if they're supposed to match, and then you get that horrible visible line around the mouth! Yuck!

  2. I know right?! I'll just stick to lip glosses and lip balm ;)


I want to thank you so much for stopping by and taking time out of your day to read my blog, it really means a lot to me. I read each comment that is left for me.
