Birchbox August | Mermaid Vibes

I know we should judge subscription boxes by the content but can we just take a moment to appreciate the theme of this month’s Birchbox*? MAJOR MERMAID VIBES ALERT!

No prizes for guessing that this month, Birchbox are encouraging us to embrace our “inner mermaid” - whatever that means - I think in fashion and beauty terms, that would be tousled hair, shimmering eyelids, and glistening skin. I like the sound of that, wbu? I mean, I’m still mesmerised by the packaging design. It’s so pretty! 

Unlike me, you’re probably more interested with what the beauty samples? It’s a good selection this month!

Birchbox August 2017 - Mermaid Vibes


Number 4 Sugar Texturising Spray

Whoever came up with  the idea of putting sugar cane in a haircare product? A brand called Number 4, that’s who! This Sugar Texturising Spray helps you get the perfect beach waves without leaving a yucky residue or crunch.

LOC One and Done Shadow Stick

LOC is Birchbox’s own brand make-up brand and who better to develop their own make-up range than the beauty expert themselves! The eyeshadow stick promises an impressive wear of 11 hours. My eyelids are really awkward and product never ever stays put for 11 hours but that’s more me than the product. The shadow stick is creamy and easy to blend - great for those who are constantly on-the-go!

Huygens Supernature Cream

Fancy a cream that naturally smooths away dead skin cells for a brighter, more radiant appearance? French skincare brand Huygens offers that with their Supernature Cream. It’s formulated with organic rose water so not only your skin will be more radiant after applying this cream, it will also feel soft and hydrated too.

Spectrum Collections A05 Brush

CALLING ALL MER-BABES! Every Birchbox subscriber will receive a Spectrum Collections brush this month. I love the brand so much, I think they have done incredibly well to differentiate themselves in a tough, competitive market. You need to check out their website.

Nuxe Huille Prodigieuse

This little bottle of oil creeps in to beauty subscription box every other month, it seems. I have an endless supply of it thanks to Birchbox. I have mentioned it loooooads on my blog, so I won’t go in to detail. It’s a nice, multi-use dry oil which you can use on skin, nails, cuticles, hair, feet, knees!

Bonus Items

I am unsure if these lovely bonus goodies are only sent in their blogger mailers, but I was very happy to see them in my parcel! I think the enamel pins and the pencil is a nice touch, and it ties the theme together nicely!

  2. Sugar in a texturising spray sounds so interesting! I'm always hesitant with sea salt ones because they might be drying so I'll have to check the Number 4 one out.
    I love the packaging of the box too!

  3. How adorable are those pins! I would get this months box purely for those. Although the Spectrum brush is super cute too.
