Sneak Peek: August 2014 Birchbox

August 10 rolled around, and I forgot to check on my box until the day was half way over. Honestly, Birchbox has lost a touch of its shine for me, so I was mostly pleasantly surprised to see my August box.

theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac
Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – 5.3 oz
CAILYN Cosmetics Dizzolv’it Makeup Melt Cleansing Balm
Harvey Prince Ageless Body CreamI’ve actually sampled a few of these products before, via other avenues. Specifically, the Stainiac (love) and the BB Cream (meh, too much glow for this oily skinned girl). I’m super excited to try the amika dry shampoo, as their other products have really worked well with my hair type. And I’m intrigued by the cleansing balm – I’ve really liked other types of products like this – but good grief that is the worst name for a product ever. Dizzolv’it? Are you kidding me? That sounds like an off-brand sink cleaner that breaks up hairballs or something. And the body cream is …. zzzzzzzzz …. oh, I’m sorry what? Yes, body cream! I am receiving body cream in my box!

So to recap, that’s a love, meh, yay, yay, zzz for this month… more soon when I get the box and test everything out. Also, one thing is missing – my “sample choice”. Any of you that already sub to Birchbox, did your sample choice show up in your box picture? Or do we think it will just be added last thing to the box? They messed up my nail polish choice last time they offered this feature, so I’m curious to see if this go-round goes more smoothly.
