August Birchbox - Must or Bust


Wheeew... Birchbox must think I'm an old lady because 3 out of 5 products I received in my Birchbox this month were anti-aging. Should I be thankful or insulted?

Regardless, without further ado...

(Malin+Goetz) Vitamin e face moisturizer - This would be a great day moisturizer if only it had spf. I used it to replace my nighttime cream and woke up with dry skin. As a disclaimer, my skin does seem to be on the dryer side in general but overall this was a BUST for me.

Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in Sailor - Yowza this is good eyeliner! It goes on really easily and smooth and lasts all day. Like lasts through a sweat pumpin spin class. I'm planning to reorder this one for sure. MUST

Pur-lisse Pur-youth preserve age delay skin serum - there isn't enough product here to see any anti-aging benefits but the texture is really nice because it has silicons in it, which my skin doesn't really enjoy and the serum smells like chemicals. BUST.

Whish Coconut Milk Correcting Gel - this stuff smells like beach (or coconuts.) To me it feels excessive to layer this on daily under your moisturizer but after a long day at the beach or pool this would feel amazing (an even more amazing if you stored it in the fridge.) If you're planning a vacay to the beach this is a MUST

Whish Hair Inhibiting Deodorant Swipes - I'm not sold on the idea of using a wipe to put on deodorant. I'm a roll-on girl myself. These wipes are pretty heavily scented which I don't love in my deodorant and I only received/tried one wipe so I can't comment on its ability to inhibit hair growth. Ehhh....BUST.

Thanks for reading!
