Birchbox – August Beauty Box

August Birchbox
Birchbox August Beauty Box

For their August beauty box Birchbox have put together samples to tide you over on your summer getaway.

Wild About Beauty Creme Eyeshadow: I received a full-sized sample of Matilda, a dark metallic which can be worn on its own or over powder eyeshadow for a more dramatic effect. This is the highlight of the box for me, the shade is perfect!

Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect: This is a leave-in conditioning spray which protects against heat and sun damage. It sounds ideal for using before blow drying.

Supergoop! CC Cream: I received two little tubes of this CC cream, a more lightweight version of a BB cream which acts as both a primer and a foundation. I don’t think I have ever tried a CC cream, I’m not usually drawn into the latest skincare fad, but I’m interested to see what it’s like.

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator: Such fancy words for an exfoliator! I love a good exfoliating cleanser so I was chuffed to see this in my box.

Nude ProGenius Omega Treatment Oil: A good oil is always a winner for me. This sounds fab, rich in omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9. I’m looking forward to using it.

The Proposal by Tamsina Perry: Don’t get too excited, it’s just the first chapter but I thought this was quite a cool and different lifestyle extra to receive.

I’m really pleased with this month’s box, especially the eyeshadow. What do you think? If you like the look of it and want to sign up, please feel free to use my referral link: The box costs £10 per month plus p+p.

Let me know your thoughts!


  1. I love nude products, The eyeshadow is a pretty shade x

    1. The eyeshadow is right up my street, I used to have a very similar one from Stila x

  2. I think that the UK Birchbox is so much better than the one here in the US, the only boxes that are worth the money here are the ipsy box and the allure sample society box

    1. Oh really? I would have thought you get better products in the US :) x

  3. Not as good as some of their boxes have been this year, but definitely not terrible by any means! xo

    1. Their bad ones are still pretty good to be fair to them x
