Birchbox August 2015 Review

Birchbox August 2015 Review

My Birchbox arrived super early this month, because I chose the guest editor box, the Birchbox + Candidly Nicole box.  This box is curated by Nicole Richie, star of the VH1 show, Candidly Nicole.  Birchbox is $10.00/month and they send five sample beauty and skin care products, every month.  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!

1.  Subscribe and use the code BBJETBLUE10 to get 100 bonus points when you sign up.

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


Birchbox ships in a hot pink box, such a bright box in my mailbox.


I loved the box this month.  It feels pretty sturdy and has a glossy finish.  I am going to save this to story makeup samples in.


First Look: There was a note from Nicole about this month’s box, which is fit for a boss lady.

There was a card promoting Nicole’s show “Candidly Nicole”.  There was a fun fill in the blank note on the back.

dr. brandt® microdermabrasion skin exfoliant

dr. brandt® microdermabrasion skin exfoliant $9.75  I love Dr Brandt products and I have been wanting to try this.  This sloughs away dead skin for a fresh looking complexion.

LAQA Cheeky Lip Tint in Humble Brag

LAQA Cheeky Lip Tint in Humble Brag $6.67  This lip color works as a cheek color and a lip color.  I love products that do double duty, and this really adds a pop of color.

OPI Venice Collection A Great Opera-tunity

OPI Venice Collection A Great Opera-tunity $2.38  I am not sure if I like the correct color.  This looks more like a pink/nude color.  While it is pretty, I was hoping for a bolder color.

Rene Furterer Lissea Leave-In Smoothing Fluid

Rene Furterer Lissea Leave-In Smoothing Fluid $3.69  You use this on your damp hair and it protects it from head styling.  I straighten my hair daily, so I really wanted to try this product out.

St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion $5.97 This is the one product I was unsure about, when I selected my box.  I am very pale and I have never had much luck with self tan products.  I am going to try this on a hidden area and see if it works.

Final Thought: This box had a total value of $28.46.  I am glad I selected this box, especially for the Dr Brandt exfoliant, the LAQA color lip product and the Rene Furterer hair treatment.  Birchbox is a great subscription and they have a fantastic point system.  If you want to subscribe to Birchbox, you can get 100 Bonus Points when you use the code BBJETBLUE10.
