Just hours away before the new month begins and I can’t believe September is almost here, but before the new month starts I thought an unboxing and review of my August 2015 Birchbox was needed like now. For the month of August Birchbox has definitely featured a lot of fantastic brands I thought and a lot of familiar brands, so before September kicks in let’s get to my Birchbox August 2015 Box Reveal.
The Birchbox theme for the month of August is all about soaking it up. The theme is about enjoying all the thrills the summer season has to offer before its officially ends until next year. Soak up the sun, get that perfect tan you’ve been trying to get all summer long, indulge in all the tropical drinks, because soon its going to be all about Pumpkin Spiced something. The theme Soak it up is about taking that moment to indulge in the summer season, and bid it farewell until next year.Product 1 R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo*
Full size $29.00 or $17.00 for travel size
The first product featured in my August 2015 Birchbox was a hair care product by the brand R+Co. and it’s their Death Valley Dry Shampoo. This dry shampoo offers all the benefits of using a dry shampoo for when one needs a quick fresh up after a workout or traveling. I liked that this dry shampoo did not leave any white chalky residue behind, and has a nice fresh floral and fig scent. The brand R+Co states that their Death Valley Dry Shampoo helps to remove excess oil from hair, and helps with pumping hair up with added volume and body.
Product 2 LAQA & Co. Cheeky Lip in CRAY CRAY
Full size $20.00
The next product that took center stage in my Birchbox August 2015 Box Reveal was a makeup item by the brand LAQA and Co. and it is the Cheeky Lip Crayon in the color Cray Cray. LAQA and Co. Cheeky Lip has a matte finish. The color is similar to a peach coral color once applied, and I think it is a nice subtle classic looking color with edge. The consistency of this lip crayon is very smooth and glides on effortlessly leaving just the right amount of color behind. I have definitely taken an interest in these little lip crayons, and I think they are convenient due to the fact LAQA & Co. lip crayon doubles as a blush, and are a effortless way to get doll up when in a hurry.
Product 3 Air Repair Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer*
Full size $20.00
The next product is from one of my favorite brands, and it is the Complexion Boosting Moisturizer by Air Repair. This moisturizer is formulated with antioxidants as well as humectants. Air Repair Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer is all about hydrating ones skin, and helping to restore dull looking skin into radiant skin with continued use.This moisturizer has a fresh aloe scent in my opinion, and has a light lotion consistency. So far I have been really liking the results that Air Repair Complexion Boosting Moisturizer has been having on my skin. My skin feels hydrated and very smooth after each use.
Full size $21.95
The next product that was included in my box was from the familiar brand in the Birchbox Shop, that has been featured in many subscribers boxes at some point in time, and if not just wait it will show up eventually.It is the hair care line Beauty Protector, and the item I received was the Protect and Detangle. Beauty Protector’s Protect and Detangle aids in helping hair maintain its color, but this multi-purpose leave-in does not stop there, it also helps protect hair against the long-term damaging effects of heat styling tools. The scent is perfect in my opinion it’s sweet, but very light and has a slight hint of a floral fragrance. Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle is one of my top favorites from this months Birchbox, and I will definitely be purchasing a full size version.
Product 5 Coola Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion*
Full size $32.00
And, lastly but truly not least the product to wrap up my Birchbox August 2015 Box Reveal was yet from another familiar brand that makes its rounds into many subscribers boxes here and there, and it is the brand Coola and the product featured was the Environmental Repair Plus Radical Recovery After Sun Lotion. This is an after sun lotion treatment that helps with calming as well as protecting and moisturizing the skin after the daily effects that the sun can have on one’s skin like sunburn. This after sun lotion is formulated with agave. Coola’s After -Sun lotion has a fresh lemon scent along with a fresh aloe fragrance. Definitely another favorite from my August Birchbox.
And, that wraps up my Birchbox August 2015 Box Reveal. Birchbox definitely drew inspiration on the fact that August is the hottest month during the summer season, and the items featured showed every bit of the summer heat. The products featured were alluring, bright warm colors and sun inspired skin care. I thought the box design was lovely, and a nice way to bid farewell to the summer season until next year. The brands featured I thought were fantastic, and I am looking forward to further testing all the products featured in my Birchbox August 2015 Box Reveal until next time it’s a wrap.
