July 2014 Birchbox

Birchbox Power Up

I've been busy lately, but it was nice to take some time out of my hectic week to see what surprises were inside my Birchbox.

I’ve been so busy lately, but I managed to take time to enjoy my monthly beauty surprise.

July Womens Health Birchbox

Birchbox teamed up with Women’s Health magazine for the second time and instead of the usual pink outer box, this month’s was a pretty blue.

Birchbox & Womens Health

Birchbox Power Up

The bottom of July’s box is red and the top has little exercise gear graphics. Although I don’t work out, I think it’s cute. The theme is “Power Up” with “samples to energize your routine.”

Birchbox Challenges

As part of this theme, subscribers receive a small booklet of 12 challenges. They include parting your hair differently, eating veggies for breakfast, and taking a cold shower.

Hello Body Cream

The first item I noticed in my box was Harvey Prince Hello Body Creme which has a yummy citrus-floral scent. I love it, but the full-size product is $22. :/

Juice Beauty Serum

This Stem Cellular Repair Booster Serum from Juice Beauty is supposed to improve elasticity and enhance skin tone. I’m not sure the sample is large enough to actually see results, but if you’re willing to pay $75 to fight aging, you may want to check it this product.

OFRA Eyebrow

Ofra Swatch

I was happy to see this Ofra Universal Eyebrow Pencil because I can certainly improve my brow game. Plus, I believe this is the full-sized product!

July Ruffian Nail Lacquer

Ruffian Ambrosia

The best sample in July’s box is this Ruffian Nail Lacquer in Ambrosia from The Rapture Collection. Birchbox finally sent me a color I like! It’s such a pretty metallic purple and I can’t wait to try it out once my acrylics are off.

Gingerade Shower Gel

The Extra this month is 100% Pure Gingerade Shower Gel. This all-natural product contains aloe to hydrate and green tea to nourish. These packets are pretty small but I’ll definitely use them.


The last item in July’s Birchbox is a special offer to get a one-year subscription to Women’s Health Magazine (valued at $9.99.) I failed to take advantage of this last year, but I’m going to this time in hopes of being motivated to be healthier. Plus, my boyfriend does collage art and can always use more magazines.

Between the full-size eyebrow pencil, Ruffian polish and the free magazine subscription, I’d say this box was worth $10. What did you think? Leave comments.
