Birchbox & MyGlam Reviews: July

July's Birchbox was full of goodies! 
And I'm pretty sure this was my last box for the year--I think?
I will not be renewing for budget reasons.
Let's see what I got!

This month was the Glamour Magazine edition. I love having themed boxes and I love Glamour Magazine!

  • Ahava Purifying Mud Mask--This mud mask is great for those with oily skin. It broke me out, sadly, but I was pleased with it.
  • Alerna Bamboo UV+ Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluide--This had the texture of a glossing or smoothing serum and worked fine. Yes, that's how it's spelled.
  • Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner--Great liner that didn't budge. See pic below.
  • Harvey Prince Hello Perfume--Meyer Lemon, white grapefruit, pink plumeria make up this sample. I liked it.
  • Tea Forte' Minteas--These kinda smelled, looked, and tasted to something akin to a natural dog biscuit, but they actually worked! My breath was fresh. The tin is cute and I'm going to use it to store the item below.
  • Earbuds w.playlist--Ok, so the earbuds are too big for my ears, but the colors are so cute! There were several playlists on the website, so I don't think I found the right one.
  • Fave item? The liner!
  • OVERALL:  Happy with this box, but I still wish I'd gotten the items others get!  5/6!

This month's MyGlam bag was Beach Beauty!
Let's check it this month's bag!

  • Rainbow Bag--It's see-through but cute.
  • Green Apple Moisturizer SPF 15 by Juice Beauty--I received their Blemish Clearing System in my February Birchbox. I was pleased with that product and this one. It's a thick moisturizer that's good for the body, but not the face!
  • NuMe HydroPunch Hydrating Conditioner--I'm OBSESSED with this. It made my coarse hair super soft.
  • Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish--I own one of their glosses, so I liked this one too. It's a pretty pink-nude color. 
  • Yes to Cucumbers On-the-Go Facial Towelettes--I've never tried Yes To anything before, and loved these. I keep them in the fridge. Ahhh! They are decent at removing makeup.
  • Circus by Andrea's Choice Polish in Somersault--I rarely get on YT, so I had no idea who this is, but I think it's awesome she has her own polish line. I received the yellow. Just like every yellow polish I own, it was streaky and took 3 coats. But it's vegan, etc. So yay. 
  • By the way, here are the codes I got for this month, so try and see if they work! 
  • $49 for set of Hydro Punch or Pure Remedy: MGLAM4966 (exp. 10-31-12)
  • 50% NuMe: MG95138765
  • Fave item? Conditioner
  • OVERALL? 4/6 I really liked this bag, but who needs a moisturizer in the summer? And I didn't like the texture of the polish. It didn't feel "beachy" enough.

  1. I love how u did a review format for this! that is what I have been with my birchbox posts too. anyway, i seriously always feel the same way about my box every month! I am always like "wtf, how come I didn't get that cool stuff?! LOL! but this months box I really loved! check for it in a few days on my blog if you wish! I got that eyeko liner last month but i got a green color....uhm, no b-box! i dont wear green liner! oh well, i had to change my settings and i think that is why i loved my box more this month. it seems as if my glam is stepping up their game! i may have to check into that! thank you for sharing!

  2. I never had yellow nail polish.. nor do I plan to get one.. but you got yourself some goodies there, I'd be tempted by the conditioner..

  3. Did you get the adult package that I sent?

  4. That picture of you is gorgeous! Such a fun one. I must say that the Birchbox looks better, though I love that MyGlam stuff comes in a bag...

  5. i looove the glambag bag! unfortunately, we only have the glossybox here in austria! :-(

  6. you can buy the ear pieces (the rubber things that pop off the buds) if they're too big.

    what great stuff you got in the birch box.

  7. looks like you scored some pretty cool goodies. I've thought about signing up for this but I just cant justify the price.

  8. Thanks for the reviews! I can only enjoy Birchbox from afar since I am only in the US sporadically. I love the picture of you - too cute!

  10. Looks like you got some fun stuff. I'm not a subscriber to these for budget reasons, plus I'm not a big beauty person, so testing out products isn't fun for me. :) Happy hump day!

  11. I'll keep an eye out for that conditioner. I'm in the market for a good one.

  12. The facial towelettes and the liquid liner sound cool. Sorry to hear that the mud mask made you break out...I've always wanted to try one of those.

  13. the eyeliner is really impressing me. it doesn't budge? now that's a winner! hahahaha have a great day elle!

  15. Birch box doesn't come to Canada so I had to cancel mine...and I will miss it :(
