Posted in Birchbox, SUBSCRIPTION BOXES

August Birchbox Review


For the month of August, Birchbox spruces up their look with a mosaic box featuring a myriad of colors and patterns. I have a nice collection of these boxes now. I use them to store knick knacks or for decoration.


The price for a Birchbox monthly subscription is ten bucks. You get five sample or full-size items. If you like them, you can purchase them online at and there’s usually a discount.


This BioRepublic aloe vera and Vitamin E mask is perfect for this time of the year. I was surprised by how soft and supple the mask left my skin feeling. Full-size $14.95.



I was excited to try this Davroe moisture senses shampoo and conditioner. It has olive leaf extracts and protects color treated hair. I really liked the shampoo because it had lots of lather and left my hair filling soft and clean. Full-size $29


Benefit Cosmetics is a fabulous line, so I’ll definitely give this eyebrow pencil a try. If it’s anything like Benefit’s mascara, it’ll be a keeper.  Full-size $24


Beauty Protector Hair oil. I have dry hair, so hair oil is always a welcome treat. I’ve gotten some good ones in my Birchboxes. This oil has argan oil in it and smells sweet like vanilla sugar. Full-size is $28.


This is a sample from Manna Kadar Cosmetics  Day Dream Palette. I received a sample of the highlighter and bronzer dual. The colors are pretty and the product feels silky and smooth. I’m loving it.  Full-size palette costs $25.

I received five great items this month. Not bad for ten bucks. Do you subscribe to Birchbox? If so, let me know in the comments. By the way, I’ve got a product/makeup organizing post  coming soon. I’ll show what I do with all the samples I get from my subscription boxes.

Stay Blessed,

I'm a Midwesterner who explores the world via the Internet, books, and movies. I share what I learn whether its beauty tips, health advice, recipes or literature. I'd call this blog a melting pot. I named it Barbie's Bookmarks because I love literature, and I love documenting things I find important in my life.. big and small. Thus, these are my life's bookmarks. I look forward to sharing them with you and learning about your bookmarks as well.
