Birchbox July 2015 Review – Go Bold + $10.00 Coupon
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Birchbox is one of the cheapest beauty subscriptions around, and it is one of my favorites. Birchbox is $10.00/month and they send five sample beauty and skin care products, every month. Some subscribers can now upgrade to a $30.00 box. The $30.00 box will contain 2 full size beauty or skin care products, along with the five usual products.
When you sign up, you fill out a profile, so Birchbox can customize your box to your preferences. There is a regular monthly box and they also have guest editor boxes. Birchbox releases spoilers and a full reveal of the guest editor boxes, so you will know which box to choose. I actually have two Birchbox subscriptions. This is the box for my newest account.
Here is the details about the Birchbox Point System
For every 100 points you earn, you get $10.00 to spend in the shop. There are lots of ways to earn points too!
2. Review Your Products: You get 10 points for every sample review you complete. Each box contains 4-5 products, so that is around $5.00 in points you can earn monthly! This makes the box $5.00 a month. You can use this link to sign up.
3. Shop!: For every dollar you spend in the Birchbox Store, you earn 1 point for each dollar spent on full-size products in the Birchbox Shop.
4. Refer Your Friends: For every friend you refer to Birchbox, you will earn 50 points
I love my Birchbox and always enjoy getting that little pink box in the mail.
This box was really colorful and fun!
The theme this month is “Go Bold”.
The information card lists everything in the box.
Davines MINU Shampoo $7.50 This shampoo protects color and cleanses hair. I really don’t like receiving shampoo in subscription boxes. I love my current shampoo and I am extremely picky about what I use. I will probably just give this to a friend and I hope Birchbox really pays attention to my profile.
Davines MINU Conditioner and Hair Serum: As a bonus, Birchbox included conditioner and serum to go with the shampoo. While I don’t care for the shampoo, it would have been nice to have the same size shampoo and conditioner. On the other hand, I don’t want too much value in my shampoo and conditioner, so I will just hush.
Jouer Matter Moisture Tint Sunscreen $4.00 I love Jouer, so I was happy to try a new product. This sunscreen feels great on my skin, and I can wear it under my makeup without looking like a greasy mess. This has a tint to it, so you can wear it instead of foundation, although I prefer more coverage.
Cartier Baiser VolÃ© Eau de Parfum Spray $3.18 This perfume has a nice summer scent, made with notes of lily and floral notes.
Supergoop!® Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum $8.40 This sunscreen has an SPF of 30 and filled with vitamin E and B5. I am keeping this in my purse for touch ups through the day. I do wish Birchbox didn’t include two sunscreen products in the box, granted the Jouer is also a tint, but it’s still pretty similar.
stila look at me liquid lipstick $11.00 Subscribers were able to pick our shade of lipstick, and I chose this pretty pink, but it is very bright!
This is a swatch. Bright Bright Bright!
Birchbox included an offer to get a free They’re Real! Mascara or Eyeliner when you buy any Benefit Cosmetics product.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $34.08. Honestly, this wasn’t my favorite Birchbox. I don’t like shampoo in boxes and two sunscreen type products were a bit much. I like the gloss. This wasn’t their best box, but I still love Birchbox and their fabulous point system. If you want to subscribe to Birchbox, you can get 100 Bonus Points when you use the code BBJETBLUE10.
