The August Birchbox is all about “back to school”, or in our case, back to beauty school. We’ve traded in pencils and notebooks, for beauty supplies and a “Tools of the Trade” Beauty School guide. 15% of all procceds from the August Birchbox Shop will be donated to Pencils of Promise, a charity that creates schools, programs, and global communities around the common goal of education for all.

My August Birchbox included a Schick Hydro Silk Razor, Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream, Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur (above), Miss Jessie’s® Original Stretch Silkening Crème, and a full size Pixi Beauty Lip & Line (below).

    I actually had to write Birchbox because my box only had the Gillette razor and a sample of Stila foundation! I was very disappointed , they’re mailing me a new box so hopefully I’ll have some goodies soon!!

      oh no, ive never heard of that happening before. good thing they’re sorting that out for you :) maybe you’ll get lucky and end up with more samples than the rest of us ;)

    I got the Yu-be cream in a Glossybox for Men! It didn’t really work, my skins naturally pretty dry and sensitive to products. I used this and it was still dry but it’s such a small tube I don’t think you’d get the full effect of it. It doesn’t smell too pretty either, I sound incredibly critical, for such a small tube it goes pretty far! xxx

      oh dang, good to know. to be honest with you, sometimes my samples sit there for a month or two until i have time to play, so most of the full size products i end up buying are based on everyone else’s recommendations lol, so thanks for the feedback!

    Hi Jennifer!
    I requested an invite from Birchbox, but the website said it could take up to a month to receive the invitation. Do you know a faster way? Is it possible for you to send me an invitation?
    Thanks for any help!
    Kim

      heeeey kim, how are you? i wish i knew of a faster way, but i don’t :( i wish it was like pinterest, where sending an invite was faster than requesting one. i actually had to wait a month for my birchbox wait list to go through. :(

        Thanks, Jennifer! I appreciate you getting back to me. I’ll wait patiently!;)
