August Birchbox is Here!

My Birchbox came in and after last months my expectations were high!  I was expecting to have another stellar package in my mailbox!  I don't know, maybe I set to high of standards for a $10 gift I get every month, or maybe I am just bored with it, or maybe I need to get a grip I don't know...

I won't say I am completely unhappy with August's Birchbox but yet again, my products do not match my card and the products on the card sound so much better!

August's box is all about Beauty School.  My Supply kit was suppose to include (according to the card) Beauty Fixation Makeup Remover, Comodynes Hydra Tanning Face Moisturizing Summer Glow, Comodynes Self-Tanning Towelettes, DDF Brightening Cleanser, & Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur.

Here is what I got:

Beauty Fixation Cuticle Conditioner - So I didn't get the makeup remover.  But these little things look kind of awesome so I will forgive BB for that.

WEI Buffing Beads & Golden Root purifying mud mask - This also seems pretty awesome, but I would have much rather had the face moisturizer and the tanning towelettes.  

Stila One application BB Cream, Foundation, and Concealer - The One application really doesn't seem to be enough. I'll let you all know.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor - The irony here is I just bought a new razor the day before the box came in.  At least it came with coupons!  Plus, razors are so expensive so it was kind nice to get this.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?!?!  My very last product is...drumroll please.....
Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur - It actually smells awesome...crazy coming from a non-perfume lover...but it does! This was the ONLY product listed on the product card that I actually got.
I guess this post seems more like a rant than a nice loving one, sorry about that.  Frustration sets in only because I have been a subscriber for a year and a half!  Should I be V.I.P. or something?!?  That said, I can't wait to try all the products I received!
So I am leaving it up to you guys! What do you think should I stay or should I go?  

Any long term subscribers to BB think they have kind of lost their awesomeness?  


  1. I would contact them, it sounds like you didn't get a box that matches your profile.

    I would stick it out for one more month and then decide what to do. I find that every time I think about quitting I get an AWESOME box the next go around.

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. The perfume and the Razor are awesome I got both of those. The stila samples do look small but they would be nice to try. I just wish they would send us some things that we could actually afford to buy. Obviously since its $10 we are like no big deal but the 60 some dollars I would have to spend to get a full size of a couple of my samples is way too much!

    Sorry your profile didnt match!!

    Happy Monday!

  3. I would defiantly contact them just so they know that your card did not match the items in your box....After July's awesome box I was super disappointed in my August box - and I have only been a BB member for 6 months - and I agree you should be a VIP :) The cuticle conditioner sounds like a good product!

  4. looks like a pretty good box to me, but i would definitely contact them about your products not matching the card!

  5. I have never seen a stila sample so small! I would definitely send them an email about your box...that is so bizarre!

  6. Did you contact them? When I've had an issue with my box I will usually call them and they fix it right away, either with a new box/sample or 100 points
