Birchbox July - Must or Bust

It's time for this month's installment of Birchbox - Must or Bust. I received my July Birchbox last week. I guess I've been busy because I didn't even realize it was on its way and thus didn't track it all the way from New York to St. Louis like I normally do.  Without further ado, here are my thoughts...

La Fresh Instant Body Soother - I used one of these wipes after an afternoon at the pool to "freshen" up and honestly, it may as well have been a baby wipe. It was nice and I felt a slight "minty" sensation but nothing to rave about. Bust.

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick - I'm not a wearer of lipstick. I'm more of a gloss girl, but I swiped this on a few times in the name of research and overall this stuff is nice. The texture is smooth and moisturizing and the nude color I received (Get Naked) is fantastic for my skin tone. If you wear lipstick, giving this stuff a try is a must.

Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect - Birchbox must have forgot that they sent me this last winter and while that sample did not entice me to buy it then I was happy to receive it again to protect my hair at the pool.  I'm not super keen on the smell and at $32 dollars a bottle I'm sure I can find a better smelling way to protect my tresses. Bust.

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream - this stuff claims to repair damaged skin and provide hydration for up to 26 hours. I'm not sure what type of "damage" it claims to repair but this cream smells great and has a nice texture - too bad it's not even sold on the Birchbox website. Bust.

Birchbox Bobby Pins - these are super cute! They are probably some of the most sturdy (read: hard to work with) bobby pins I've ever tried but if you can get them in your hair they are adorable. Must.

Thanks for reading!
