In mid June I had signed up for Birchbox and I was a little bummed I couldn't get June's Birchbox but this one made up for it! I'm sure most people know what Birchbox is but just in case you don't, it's basically a monthly payment of $10 dollars to receive 4-5 beauty, hair or even sometimes snack samples each month. Also, the things each person receives depends on how they filled out their beauty quiz so the things someone else receives might be a little different than what I or you receive. I thought it was a neat idea so I signed up because who doesn't love good sized samples? From now on I'm going to post every month on what I get and I'm also going to say a little bit about the products I got the previous month like whether I liked them or not.
So the July 2011 Birchbox items were chosen by fashion designer Cynthia Rowley. I hadn't heard about this designer till I read the little note that comes with every box explaining what you got and the reason behind the products but somehow my mom knew who she was. All the products chosen were supposed to be her favorite items for fashion shows and her own personal faves. I thought this months Birchbox was great, i received 4 samples and one full sized wholesome bar. Also, the samples were a great size!
The products I received in July's Birchbox were:
