Review: Birchbox Subscription Box- August

I signed up for a Birchbox subscription box. It's only $15 a month and this month's box came with 6 products. 

In my box was....

IPKN Moist & Firm Beauty Balm SPF 45- Light. 
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5 in 1 styling treatment. 
ModelCo Lip Plumper. 
Oribe Cote d'Azue Eau de Parfum. 
Purlisse Coconut Oil+Orange Blossom Silky Body Butter. 
Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream. 

The first thing I want to say is the Lip Plumper did nothing. When I put it on I felt a slight tingle for a moment and then it was gone. It did nothing to plump my lips. That's why the cosmetic surgeons get the big bucks because these over the counter 'plumping' products do nothing. It is a nice lip gloss though, so not a total fail. lol 

The perfume sample smells really good. It's nice to gets these little samples that let us try the expensive brands because I wouldn't be trying it otherwise. 

The styling cream did leave my hair soft but it didn't add volume or do anything else but it does smell good. The body butter smells good. I love these because they always leave my skin soft and are great if you have dry skin. 

The BB Cream is great under my foundation. It's too light for me to use on its own though. The recovery cream is an ok moisturizer but it's a little greasy. 

This month's box was not too bad. I do like trying new to me products and this is a good way to do that. 

Did you get this box?
