My July Birchbox

This month's Birchbox theme was One-Two-Punch. "Sundresses and flip-flops, a pop of color on lips and cheeks - during the dog days of summer all it takes are those ultra easy one-two-and-done combos to get you out the door." Loved the packaging! Here's what I received:

 Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser (1 fl oz/2.5 oz $10) | Obliphica Professional Seaberry Hair Serum (.5 fl oz/2.2 fl oz $38) | purlisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF 30 in Medium (.34 oz/1.4 oz $35) | Beautaniq Beauty Blush Serum in Sunrise (.35 fl oz, full size $16) | Eau De Cartier Eau de Parfum (.05 fl oz/1.7 fl oz $76) | Add-on: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Mask (1 pair $11)

"A sensual fragrance with vanilla, balsam and amber accents, combined with the freshness of a citrus accord." Definitely a good date night fragrance. 

"Vitamin-rich apricot kernel and avocado oils hydrate and smooth skin while squalane restores natural moisture balance. Thoroughly cleanses skin and removes makeup without over-drying or stripping skin of its natural oils." Love a Kiehl's product! It says for all skin types but it was definitely gentle enough for my sensitive skin.

Can't go wrong with a hair serum. Haven't heard of seaberry but this one smells pretty good.

This month I decided to add-on a product because you can't have enough undereye masks. "A revolution in repair for fresh, youthful-looking eyes. Our Worldwide First: the only Eye Mask infused with Advanced Night Repair technology. Experience this targeted weekly Eye Mask that bursts onto skin with 20X more of our proven soothing, hydrating and ChronoluxCB™ repair ingredients. Instantly, your eye area feels cool and refreshed. In just 10 minutes, eyes look more rested, renewed fine, dry lines are plumped as skin is drenched with hydration. Eyes look radiant, infused with luminous youth." I love the undereye serum so this is like adding it to patches so a more direct concentration. The packaging was a bit difficult lol so I felt silly but overall I like these.

Mixed with a lighter foundation - gives more of a glow

"Your beauty balm that glides on like tinted moisturizer with all the age-defying, coverage, sunscreen benefits of a foundation and BB cream! Featuring our exclusive Asian Herb extracts complex, Chamomile & Artemisia soothes skin while Sugar Maple improves skin's appearance and retains moisture to create a gorgeous & glowing complexion." I filled out my Birchbox beauty profile as fair skinned so not sure why I keep getting these Medium shades. Thankfully I have a lighter foundation I can mix it with. It was nice and lightweight and definitely left a nice finish to my skin. $35 seems a bit much though!

Wearing on my lips & cheeks

"A nourishing water-based cream color for cheeks and lips, our Blush Serum melts into the skin for a natural, petal-fresh flush of color. Infused with apricot fruit extract to repair and protect. The non-greasy pigment is long-wearing, streak-free and super blendable to give cheeks and lips a healthy blush from within glow." Thought I wouldn't like this bright pink but I liked the natural tint it gives to my lips. It also blends pretty well so I can mix with with my summer bronzer.

What did you receive in your Birchbox this month?
