Time to share my August Birchbox! This month’s theme was product innovations. All in all, this wasn’t my favorite box by any means, but from looking at some of the other August boxes that I’ve seen so far, I’m really glad this was the one I got! Here are the products that I received:

Its a face mask, which I’m glad I got as opposed to the cleanser which I saw in other Birchboxes. I don’t really like messing with my cleansing routine, but I’m always open to trying out a new mask.

I will definitely give it a go though to see how it works!
This is, for all intents and purposes, a piece of elastic ribbon string that is tied on the end. Why is this a product in my Birchbox? And more importantly, why does it cost $5 for three of these? Not only does it not even keep my hair up (and I don’t have thick hair by any means) but it certainly doesn’t look “cute” on my wrist. It looks like I literally tied a black ribbon around my wrist…people in my office probably think I’m commemorating some tragic event. They have other ones on their website that have designs or pendants and are kind of cute, though. The one positive is that is does feel nice around my wrist and doesn’t feel like its cutting into my skin like other elastics. But if it doesn’t actually hold up my hair, then there’s no real reason for it to be on my wrist anyway. I can’t believe I just wrote a paragraph about this stupid thing.
