July Birchbox and Glam Bag Haul!

Another busy month flew by! This is certainly bridal season people! I’ve hardly had time to sit down and do any kind of extra beauty-related work.

Well, here we finally are with a review of my July Birchbox and Glam Bag arrivals!

I feel like I scored pretty well with the products from Glam Bag this month – the theme this time seemed loosely based around a “natural” approach. They also introduced a new line from Andrea’s Choice called Circus. Inspired by days at the circus, and very cutely packaged as well as earth-conscious – as described on their website, “Each chip-resistant shade is vegan, cruelty free and free of Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP”. I’m looking forward to trying out the color!

Other products included in this month’s bag include an Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer from organic company, Juice Beauty, a great Hydrating Conditioner from NuMe, Facial Towelettes from Yes to Cucumbers, and a fun double-duty Lip and Cheek Stain from Josie Maran.

See below for photos of all of my July Glam Bag Products!

Now on to this month’s Birchbox. This time, they teamed up with Glamour magazine to offer some great products to celebrate all fives senses of summer, from sight, to sound, to taste, touch, and smell.

July’s “Glamour” Birchbox

For “smell”- they included a fun, citrus-y scent from Annick Goutal called Eau d’Hadrien evoking images of a bright and sunny Tuscan orchard. For “touch” – a B.B. Cream from Boscia, this multi-tasking cream works as a primer, serum, foundation, AND SPF! And on top of that (no pun intended), it feels weightless and adjusts to perfectly match your skin tone.
For “sight” – we get two great products: the first, a beautiful turquoise nail polish from Color Club called “Blue-Ming”, another great shade to add to my growing collection of polishes! Next a limited-edition lip-glaze from Stila’s “It’s Go Time” Lip Glaze Trio, for shimmery color and high-shine. I absolutely love these glosses and often give them as gifts to my brides!

The Birchbox Lifestyle Extra’s rounded out the sensory experience with cute mints from Tea Forte for “taste”, with refreshing, tea-infused mints, I’m curious to try them!
And lastly, for “sound”, we get fun Earbud headphones in bright colors to keep with the neon-trend this season.

See more photos below for all the great products I received this month!

    I was really looking forward to getting my glam bag and I wasn’t disappointed at all! Juice Beauty Green Apple SPF 15 was my favorite product and the nail polish came in second. I can’t wait for my August box!
