Birchbox August 2012

August 10, 2012 by Trina 9 Comments

I got some fun goodies in my Birchbox for “Beauty School” month!

Viva La Juicy La Fleur perfume sample.  A very flirty fruity fragrance.  Love it.

DDF Brightening Cleanser.  This says it evens out skin tone so I’m excited to see if it really does.  Stay tuned.

Comodynes face and body tanning towelettes.  I’m so excited to try these!  I’ve wanted to try the towelettes for a long time but I’ve just not gotten around to doing it.  I just ran out of my SunLabs self tanner so I’m putting these to the test next weekend.  Stay tuned!

Schick Hydro Silk razor.  I love that they added a drugstore product this time.  I really love these razors.  The added moisturizers are great and the handles allow a firm grip.

Beauty Fixation cotton swabs.  I had to read the card to figure out what these were.  They have stuff inside them and you break them sort of like you would break a glow stick.  They’re for cleaning up oopsies you might have while doing your makeup such a smudged eye liner, etc.  I am not sure I would use these, but we’ll see.


  1. we ended up with a lot of the same things. the ones that are different, i got last month (the tanning towelettes). posting mine tomorrow :)

  2. I just signed up for my box. Can’t wait to get my first one!!!


  3. I’ve been hemming and hawing and dragging my little stilletoed feet on signing up for Birch Box… do you feel it’s been a good experience for you/your blog? ~S

    • Yes, for two reasons. I discover new products and I can earn points on purchasing the full sizes and also for providing feedback. If you get 5 items in your box and give feedback on all 5 you earn enough points equivalent to $5 in credit at Birchbox. Also you can earn referral points. Right now I’ve racked up about $90 worth of credit.

  4. Got my Birchbox today. The jury is still out. Didn’t love the teeny tiny Stilla concealer samples (love Stilla but not enough product to apply) nor the Juicy perfume (can get at any department store). The Yu-Be moisturizing cream might save the day — been reading a lot about this magical Japanese cream!

  5. I wear Viva La Juicy (not La Fleur, though) and LOVE it !! My husband picked it out after a long trek to find a mysterious scent…

  6. Hey! I’m one of the Messy Project girls for Sept, just stopping by to show some love. I love those qtips, I would use them daily. I can’t seem to put on my mascara without getting it all over my eye lids. Can’t wait to read more about ya!
