Birchbox August

It is August 25th and I am finally getting to post about this month's Birchbox....woo wee! August has been a wild ride to say the least.

This month's Birchbox is all about Beauty School!

I was kinda excited to see this since the theme is right up my alley.
The pink card that you see above came with all kinds of beauty tips on it. For a Cosmetologist, it wasn't anything new, but to the average person, I am sure it was very helpful.

Let's get to the good stuff..

First Up: Beauty Fixation Tinted Lip Conditioner,full size $5

Let me say that this sample is awesome since it came with 24 applications! I have never seen anything like it..

When I pulled the weird pink Q-tip out, it was kind of creepy, like I was going to have some dental work done or something. I then read the directions and snapped the end off that had the little red line on it and watched in awe as the liquid inside moved down to the cotton tip on the bottom.

Wow. I applied it to my lips and have to say it feels nice. I think the best thing is that you get a new applicator every time you use it so it keeps bacteria at bay. Jury is still out on how well the lip conditioner works, but the packaging and application sure got my attention.

Next: Caldrea Hand Soap $10.50 full size

Both scents smell wonderful. It cleans your hands. It's cool. I don't really know what else to say about hand soap. PSA: wash you hands to stop the spread of germs! Amen!.....that was a little confusing.

Moving On: Blue Copper 5 Firming Elasticity Repair, $60 full size

I must confess I haven't tried it on my face yet, only my hand, but it does smell rather refreshing. The fact that it has Copper in it is a bonus because Copper is known for stimulating collagen production. It is a very light moisturizer which is a plus since I find that most anti-aging creams are too heavy for my skin.

Up Next: Viva la Juicy La Fleur by Juicy Couture, full size $70

I liked the smell, but I don't think I could wear it. It is very floral and I am not a big fan of that. If you are someone who loves floral fragrances, then this is for you.

Finally: Schick Hydro Silk Razor

When I first saw this I thought that my hubby had tampered with my birch box. He didn't, but it did cross my mind that he put this razor inside so I would shave my legs a little more often. He's such a lucky guy.

Umm...I'll be honest, this thing scares me. It has like 18 blades on it for cutting down forests.

  I think I should have someone in the house with me whenever I use it in case of emergency. It says that is has a water activated serum that moisturizes your skin as you shave. I'll have to get brave and let you know how it works. Right now I am going to go buy a lot of band aids. If you have any forests that need cut down, then this razor is for you.

Well, that is it for Birchbox August, I am going to go enjoy my plump lips, super clean hands and wrinkle free skin while I smell like a flower shop.... and if you happen to see me, try not to notice the band aids.

Have A Happy Saturday!
