Channing Presents…July Birchbox

It’s no secret that I’m pretty lame when it comes to photographing my subscription box. So I decided I would be super lazy and make a photo collage of what was in my Birchbox (with images from Birchbox.com) as brought to you by Channing Tatum in his Magic Mike costume. 


Yup. Still want that artsy unboxing picture? I didn’t think so 😏

Overall, I’d say this month was a win! I took a chance by not choosing the curated box or even a sample choice, but I completely forgot. 

Let’s talk about what’s inside:

Marcelle Xtension Plus Curl Mascara:

I love this mascara because it has a curved wand AND teeth. For the most part it combs and stretches lashes but you can see in my picture, it can also give them a tangled curl: 

Either way, you get lashes that stand out. Oh, and it removes easily when you want to take it off. 

Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Abricot:

I’m sorry did hell freeze over? Because this is the first time I actually like a perfume sample from Birchbox. I don’t think this company is connected to Harvey Prince. Harvey Prince is the stinky fragrance monopoly that ruins every Birchbox. This scent is technically a vanilla fragrance, but it also has notes of apricot and jackfruit. I’m not sure what jackfruit is but it smells pretty damn fine. Thumbs up👍🏻

MD Solar Sciences Mineral Creme SPF 50:

Ok, I’m not sure how this will work out with my skin, but I’m psyched that it has Titanium Dioxide and Zinc. I do NOT fare well with  chemical sunscreens that begin with the letter O, as in “O hell yes you will break out from using this.” Excited to try this, but no promises just yet. 

Dr. Brandt Pore Dermabrasion:

I have not tried this yet, but I have always wanted to try it. I assume it will help with surface texture, not unclogging. You need a leave-on BHA for that. It will probably give a nice polish to the little flakes around my nose. Oh, it actually retails for 58 bucks so there is no way in hell that I will buy it unless I had a ton of Birchbox points or Dr. Brandt decided to gift it to me. Is Dr. Brandt a real person? Does he/she read obscure blogs with just 100 followers? Prob not. 

Rene Furterer Karinga Hydrating Styling Creme: 

This is a silicone free styling creme to smooth out frizz, static, and dryness. It’s not strong enough to use on its own, but it is a great finishing product. And the smell! It smells like the beach ❤️

Makes me think of Channing on the beach


Hello again! 😍

Till next time…

Smooches! 💋
