July Birchbox...Neon Earphones, Laura Geller, Ahava, Manna Kadar and Oscar de la Renta

I love Birchbox! So far, it's my favorite monthly subscription service. Most of the boxes I've gotten are pretty good and worth more than $10. If you are not familiar with Birchbox, it's a monthly subscription service where you pay $10 a month and you get 4-5 deluxe high-end beauty samples in a cute box right to your door step. Go to for for more info.

For this month, Birchbox collaborated with Glamour to celebrate our 5 senses. That's explains the "see it, hear it, taste it, touch it, smell it" on the sleeve. It's cute noh? Samples included are supposed to stimulate our senses in the best way possible.

Here's what I got...

A sample of AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask (Full size $30). It has Dead Sea mud and Kaolin white clay and it's supposed to detoxify the skin. I never care for skin care products I get from Birchbox. I already have a regular skin care routine I follow. However, since it's a mask/treatment, I can surely incorporate it into my skin care routine and use it once a week.

A sample of Oscar de la Renta Live in Love perfume (Full size $25-78). I rarely buy perfumes so I always enjoy getting perfume samples. This smells good, but it's not for me. It's very floral with hints of sandalwood and cedar. It's not a very youthyful scent in my opinion.

A sample of Manna Kadar Sheer Glos Shimmer Lotion (Full size $29). An illuminating liquid that can be used on the body or mix with your foundation for a beautiful sheen. It looks a bit bronzy and a little goes a long way so try not to put too much. The finish actually reminds me of a sheer bronze eye shadow ^_^. 

A full size Laura Geller Doubled Dipped Lipstick in Caribbean Kiss (Full size $17.50). This is the coolest, most interesting lipstick I've ever seen. 2 colors in one. A golden rosy pink on one side, while the other side is a golden bronze nude color. Both are easy to apply, glides on smoothly like a lipbalm and it has medium coverage. 

EXTRA: Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds. Neon headphones!!! It's supere cute!!!

Overall, I'm very pleased with this month's Birchbox. All the smaples are great and I really love the full size Laura Geller Double Sided lipstick.
