Birchbox August 2015 Unboxing

Birchbox was the gateway to my subscription box addiction!  It has introduced me to lots of great products and a few that now have holy grail status for me.  For August I opted for the guest curated box by Nicole Richie. The guest curated boxes are always fully revealed so I knew what I was getting but still better to see in person. The guest curated boxes also typically ship earlier than the other boxes so I got mine early in the month. Let’s  see what I got!

First Look

Product Card

dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant.  .25oz. Value $9.75. I have gotten this sample multiple times from Birchbox and Ipsy and it is a nice exfoliant but way over priced. I actually have quite a few exfoliants open so I may sell this over at my Instagram auction account heather_sellsstuff 

LAQA & Co Cheeky Lip Tint in Humble Brag. Value $6.67. LAQA & Co is a big favorite of Birchbox and I’ve gotten several products from them. I like that is can be used on your lips or cheeks and it’s a very nice blush pink color. I may try it out on my cheeks!

OPI Venice Collection in My Gondola or Yours. Value $2.38. A cute little mini polish!  I do wish I had received a different color as I don’t wear black polish a lot but I will add this to my nail polish shelf. 

Rene Furteree LISSEA Leave-In Smoothing Fluid. Value $3.69. This a leave in conditioner that protects hair from heat damage and controls frizz. I have never heard of this brand before but I definitely have frizz so I’ll try this out. 

St. Tropez Gradual In-Shower Tan. Value $5.97. This is a buildable color tanner that can be used in the shower. This looks interesting but I already use a self tanner I like so I may sell this. 

I calculate a value of $28.46 for this box and I only paid $9.17. I’m happy with this box but still the main appeal of Birchbox is the points system where I can buy full size products for cheap!
