My July Birchbox just arrived in the mail. This month they teamed up with best health to curate the box. Let's see what was inside.
RUSK Hair Care Heatshift | Full-size $22
This product is a complete miss for me. It says it works best when combined with heated styling tools. However, in my Birchbox profile I said I usually let my hair air dry. These two things do not go together. This sample is worth $6.47
Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion | Full-size $18
Not the most exciting sample in the world but it something I will use up eventually. I have so many mini body lotions to work through. This sample is worth $3.04.
Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub | Full-size $14.99
I do love a good exfoliant so this is probably my favorite product of the box. It's a good size too for a sample. This sample is worth $3.75.
Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara | Full-size $29
I don't wear mascara, so this won't get used by me. However, I know lots of people were hoping to get this product so I know I'll be able to swap it. This sample is worth $9.67.
theBalm cosmetics Balm Desert | Full-size $21
This product is described as a bronzer/blush by Birchbox... but really, it's a bronzer. I don't use bronzer so will end up swapping this. It is quite dark too. This sample is worth $2.61.
ConclusionThe total value of this month's box was $25.54 which is more than the $14.95 I paid including shipping. However, I'll use so few of this months products that it really wasn't worth it. Hopefully next month will be more in line with the preferences I put in my profile. If you want to find out more check out the Birchbox Canada website.
