July Birchbox Review

Yes, I have already received my August Birchbox in the mail.
Yes, we are already over halfway through August.
Yes, I am finally reviewing my July box.

So in this post I talked about receiving my very 1st Birchbox
delivery in the mail.
I didn't want to do a full review of the box until I actually had the chance to use all
the products for a little while.

I have used them all enough times now to form a good opinion or review of them
so here it goes!

First up is the Tan Towel. It is simply a sunless tanner in the form of a moist wipe.
I loved the fact that the towel was able to be used on your face and body.
My skin is super sensitive,
so it is nice to have a product that is formulated for both areas :)
The towel is a bit small (compared to the ones I have used before),
so it started to feel a bit dry by the time I was only halfway through using it :(
It only took about 5-10 minutes to feel like I was dry enough to get dressed for bed.
Pros: Fairly easy to use, no streaks, left a light glow of color
Cons: Had a slight odor (my nose is super sensitive), color was too faint for me

It is a leave-in conditioning mist.
I have used this off and on, but I haven't noticed a major difference with my hair.
Can't say I love it or hate it, just whatever.
I will probably just stick with my good ole' Suave detangler for kids :)
It smells yummy and works great!

The Dr. Lipp balm I have used a few times,
and the Coola moisturizer I honestly haven't touched.
The balm is pretty think, so it would be great in the winter time for chapped lips.
Right now I prefer to stick with my classic cherry Chapstick
because it is easy to apply (just swipe and go!).
To be honest, I thought the Coola product was an actual sunscreen and didn't see
the need for it recently.
Of course now that I reread the product description I realize that I am an idiot! lol!
I will be testing out this moisturizer next time I am out and about sans makeup :)

The final product from my July box is the Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow.
Oh my do I love this stuff!
It seriously has the perfect amount of color, glow, coverage, and moisture!
I have been wearing it non-stop since it arrived!
Again, my skin is super duper sensitive and I have had no problems with this product.
I usually can't wear any sort of foundation that isn't powder based,
but this little gem has been amazing for me.
If you haven't tried it yet, or didn't receive it in your box
you must try it out! You won't regret it!

Thank you Birchbox for introducing me to some new companies and items
that I never would have come across without you :)

Here is a sneak peek at my August box...
