The box for August.

Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-Up Remover 0.8 oz

Retail Value (6.7 oz.):  $20

This lotion acts as a cleanser, toner, and makeup remover.  I love that this lotion has multiple uses and is rinse-free.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina .05 fl oz

Retail Value (.1 oz.):  $24

I love this Stila liquid lipstick because it lasts a really long time and the shade Patina is lovely.  I went and bought more of these Stila lipsticks in other shades.  Awesome product.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick-Patina

derma e Purifying Daily Detox Scrub 1/2 oz

Retail Value (4oz.):  $15.50

I've received this derma e scrub in other beauty boxes.  This is a gentle scrub made with green tea, charcoal, seaweed and apricot seed powder.  It's also 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free.

Beauty Protector Protect & Oil 

Retail Value (4 oz.):  $28

I've also received Beauty Protector products in other beauty boxes.  They have some awesome products.  This hair oil protects the hair from UV rays, heat, and breakage.  It also adds a lot of shine to my hair.

R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste 0.25 oz

Retail Value (2.2 oz.):  $28

This is another brand that I have received in past beauty boxes.  This dry shampoo paste is made with Hawaiian volcanic ash, zeolite powder; and coconut, sunflower seed, and argan oils.  I haven't tried this out yet but I really like the other products from R+Co so I'm looking forward to using this dry shampoo paste.

My Thoughts:  I really liked the August Birchbox.  My favorite products were the Stila Liquid Lipstick, the Avene Lotion Cleanser, and the Beauty Protector Hair Oil.  I think Birchbox sent a nice variety of products in decent sample sizes.  This is a great low cost beauty subscription box.
