I received my second Birchbox today. This one was put together with the help of Cynthia Rowley. I'm not sure what she did besides design a sleeve to go over the box but it is a pretty sleeve. Once you slide it off, it looks like the other boxes. &Here's what's inside this month...
|July 2011 Birchbox Items|
|Ahava Hand Cream for All Skin Types|
Then there's 1oz of Purity cleanser by Philosophy which I've used before (and reviewed here).
A sample of Zoya's "Shay" nail polish from the Touch Collection. I wasn't thrilled with this collection from the swatches I've seen and I wouldn't buy a full-sized bottle but it is pretty for a nude polish. This is a smaller bottle than the full-sized Zoyas.
Lastly there's a Kind fruit and nut bar (Almond & Apricot) which Cynthia says are her "favs! I always have one in my bag just in case." These bars are all natural and free of wheat, gluten and dairy.
I tried the bar and it's pretty good... Tastes very healthy but it's still enjoyable. One bar contains 190 calories and 11g of fat--which kind of blew me away--as one Snickers bar contains 220 calories and 10g of fat.
Did you get a July Birchbox? Or have you tried any of these products? I think I'm most interested in giving the Redken spray a try.
