July: Birchbox x Glamour

by Jessica Sturdy on July 14, 2012

The July Birchbox was ah-maz-ing! They teamed up with Glamour to celebrate the five senses of summer and the end result was a Birchbox with a multi-sensory experience!

Amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask — This mask is packed with omega acids and Vitamin C, which are supposed to help repair split ends. I used this as a leave-in-for-5-minutes conditioner while I was shaving my legs in the shower. The smell was GREAT! My hair felt super soft after. (Buy the full size here!)

Amika Obliphica Hair Treatment — This is a hair oil that “adds manageability and shine.” Again, smells wonderful! You’re supposed to use it after the condition mask (above) to make your strands extra soft. My hair absolutely felt softer than it normally it does. (Buy the full size here!)

Boscia B.B. Cream — Okay, this has to be my favorite product in the whole box. (Yes, even more so than the food. So you know it’s good!) It’s weightless! So light that it almost feels like a mousse. It’s primer, serum, foundation, and SPF — all in one! This is definitely going to replace my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. Yep, I said it. Normally, I use LM Tinted Moisturizer and put a little bit of Bare Minerals Matte Foundation over it. This product is a one stop shop. It really is all you need! The tube says, “This B.B. Cream creates a lustrous, flawless finish as it hydrates, firms and soothes the skin. Helps diminish the appearance of pores, fine lines and uneven skintone while providing long-wearing, natural coverage that conceals imperfections.” They aren’t lying, folks! (Buy the full size here!)

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner — #FOOLPROOF This eyeliner is like a felt-tipped marker with an ultra-fine tip. It makes your makes your eyeliner look beyond natural. If I can do it, you can do it! (Buy the full size here!)

Harvey Prince ‘Hello’ — Smells girly & flirty! There are notes of plumeria so, naturally, my mind drifts off to Hawaii. I can’t help but smile when I smell this scent! :) (Buy the full size here!)

Larabar Uber — The Bananas Foster tasted just like fresh banana bread! SO GOOD! I already have a slight obsession with the original Larabars, but this variety is now on my grocery list! (Buy a full box here!)

Birchbox Earbuds — Check out my photo here! I used them while I was flipping through InStyle by the Stuy Town fountain the other day.
