BIRCHBOX -- His & Hers: July 2012


Hey everyone! Sorry that our July box post is a bit late this time, but better late than never right?! Let's dive right in!

HIS BOX

July's box was tailored around how sometimes the smallest tweaks can lead to the biggest improvements. Here's what Hubby received:

Oribe | Ultra Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner | $25
A moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for all hair types.

Kiehl's | Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream - White Eagle | $16
Camphor and menthol-infused cream for a calm, cool shave.

Marvis | Classic Mint Toothpase | $10.50
Italian-imported toothpaste with an apothecary-inspired design.

C.O. BIGELOW | My Favorite Lip Balm | $7.50
A moisturizing shield with shea butter and almond oil to heal chapped lips.

Barking Irons | Brando Cut T-Shirt | $46 (for two-pack)
A vintage fit with short, angled sleeves and a subtle jersey hem.

HIS THOUGHTS...

Favorite Item: "The Barking Irons shirt. Who doesn't love free t-shirts?"

"Leave It" Item: "The lip balm, I guess? I just don't really use it all that much. I'm sure it will end up in the bottom of your purse soon."

And the rest: "It's always nice to have travel sizes of tooth paste, shampoo, and shave gel. I doubt I'll be using them before our next vacation, though."

MY BOX

This time, Birchbox teamed up with Glamour Magazine, so my box was centered around the 5 senses. I thought this was a super cool idea, and Glamour is one of my faves! :D

Alterna | BAMBOO UV+ Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluide | $24
This finishing gloss prevents UV rays from fading color while organic bamboo extracts keep hair soft and strong.

Jouer | Luminizing Moisture Tint | $38
This lightweight award-winner is our daily shortcut to dewy skin that feels natural and looks gorgeous.

Oscar de la Renta | live in love | $25-78
This elegant floral layers notes of hyacinth and orchid over a rich base of sandalwood and cedar.

stila | lip glaze | Set of 3, $12
This sparkly gloss from the limited edition It's Go Time Lip Glaze Trio combines sheer color with mega-watt shine.

LÄRABAR | über | Pack of 5, $12.69
The latest addition to our snack drawer, these healthy and satisfying bars are packed with dried nuts and fruits.

Birchbox Exclusive | Earbuds
We designed these neon headphones just for you. Pair them with your best playlist.

MY THOUGHTS...

Favorite Item(s): The earbuds! They're adorable. And the Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint. I've sampled it before and really enjoy it, so I'm thrilled to have another one. Oh, and the Stila Lip Glaze. It's full-size!

"Leave It" Item: The LÄRABAR. I opened it and the smell just didn't appeal to me. I let Hubby eat it. He said it was okay.

And the rest: I'm pretty set with my hair routine now, so I probably won't be trying the Alterna for a while. The Oscar de la Renta perfume smells great, but I already have so much. It's another sample for my burgeoning stash!
