August 2012 Birchbox

So I received my Birchbox sometime last week and this is what I got in my August 2012 Birchbox. This month's theme was Beauty School 101, the products in the August box are must-have products and essentials for fall. One thing I noticed right a way when I got my Birchbox was that the box was slightly bigger! I'm not sure if they're doing this just for the month of August or if this is the new box size, let me know if you know!


 I loved this cute Beauty School booklet that came in the August box. It's so cute and has some great tips!

List of Products in this box.
Miss Jessie's Original Stretch Silkening Creme Full-size, $22
"Apply to soaking wet hair to loosen tight curls and add tons of shine." I have curly hair and I always hate how my hair drys (We are talking frizzy spiral curls) so I'm hoping that this cream does loosen my curls.

Pixi Beauty Lip & Line Full-size, $18
"A double-sided wand featuring a waterproof liner and a creamy lipstick." I was pretty excited when I saw this in my box. I've seen Pixi at Target and never really cared about their products. This is a two-in-one lip and liner I love two-in-one products like this because they are so convenient. I just wished that I would've gotten a different color.

Yu-be Moisturizing Skin Cream Full-size, $16
"Best-selling Japanese cream that hydrates chapped lips, rough heels, and cracked hands." I am a huge fan of Asian products because they are AMAZING and can do wonders. Cannot wait to try this out!

Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur Full-size, $70 
"This modern scent is a feminine blend of wild berries, mandarin, and waterlily." This scent will remind you of a Juicy Couture perfume it smells really nice.

EXTRA: SCHICK Hydro Silk Razor
"The water-activated serum moisturizes skin while you shave, and the innovative oval-shaped designs hugs tricky areas like knees and ankles." I think this is why our boxes were bigger then usual, to fit in this razor. Anyways I am always in the look out for products that can change my regular products so maybe this razor will be a new favorite.

Well that's it for this Birchbox. I really liked all the products that I got and can't wait to use them! Also all this month Birchbox is donating 15% of proceeds from the Birchbox shop to Pencils of Promise, with the goal of a building a school in Central America. So go and buy something from the Birchbox shop so that you can hope them achieve this goal!
