August Birchbox, 2012

It’s always fun to see this surprise in my mailbox!

The usually magenta box is yellow this month.  What the deal?  

What is Birchbox?  For $10 a month, Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples.

This month’s box is has a “Beauty School” theme.  Instead of traditional school supplies, Birchbox is helping us stock up on beauty essentials to begin the school year.

A little sparse on the products this months, but the samples are pretty large so that helps make up for it.  I was actually needing a new razor, so I glad to see it in this months box.

The full size eyeliner swatched nicely and hasn’t rubbed off (even after running my finger over it a few times).


It’s not my favorite box that I’ve ever received, but I appreciate the large samples (over the quantity).  The Beauty School booklet is a cute addition with lots of useful information.  I especially like the “How to Read a Label” part.

  1. I received the brightening cleanser (which I really like), the razor (which I have already used), the perfume sample (I am allergic to perfume so I always give those away) and 2 self-tanning towelettes for the face and 2 for the body. I am a pale redhead and like to keep it that way, so those are of no use to me. I’d say this is my least favourite box yet, but the cleanser and razor almost redeemed it.

  2. I think it’s a pretty nice box. The samples definitely look bigger this month lol. I can’t wait to get mine! I hope I get the liner and conditioner!

    • The liner has some serious staying power. That swatch was on my arm all day!

  3. I unsubscribe to Birchbox recently, it just wasn’t do it for me. I think that the Allure and BeautyBar Sample Society was the best. The DDF looks good though..

  4. This is my favorite box yet. The samples were very large and all stuff I will use.
