Thread Starter 

http://www.birchbox.com/shop/July-box

 

The page is currently blank and it looks like they're getting ready to release what's available this month since the page previously had  "featured" items. The first way of Birchboxes should be heading out by now I know a few of you will be sent out on the 10th with the wave after that on the 15th. Once the items are listed - probably in the morning - I'll have that list posted in this thread.

 

Edit: July 8, 2011

 

Here we go ladies. What's featured this month in the July Birchbox. Items in your Birchbox may include a few of these items:

 

  1. Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation with SPF 15
  2. Korres Showergel
  3. philosophy® purity made simple™ one-step facial cleanser
  4. JOYA FvsS Composition No. 1 Parfum
  5. ybf beauty Automatic Universal Taupe Eyebrow Pencil
  6. Zoya Touch Collection

So wait, I don't know how this works, is the featured item going to be in some of the July birchboxes? Or is it just a random featured item? I guess I answered my own question, they probably don't just post random items, but I'm just curious.

It's both. It's typically what's featured as one of the monthly items but it's also random on what they're promoting that month.

The Ahava Mineral Hand Cream was in May's Birchbox.  I doubt it's going to be in July as well.  I think they are just teasing us!!!! We will probably have to wait until two or three days after the 10th to see what the possibilities are.  I'm so excited!!

Love this teaser from their site:

This month, we teamed up with fashion designer and Exhibition A co-founder Cynthia Rowley for our first-ever curated Birchbox. The style icon selected some of her favorites, from a three-in-one face wash to a lightweight glossing spray. There's also a brow pencil by a niche beauty line, the ultimate nude polishes, and more. Here's to a very fashionable summer! Not a subscriber? Sign up by July 15th and you'll receive the Cynthia Rowley July box!

Take a look at last month's thread on it. It's worth it. :D $10 for a full size Laura Geller blush (last month), the month before that it was a full size eyeshadow from Stila (or LORAC?).

It was Stila. But yeah, definitely give it a try, I was seriously so bummed when I saw those Laura Geller blushes and I knew that had I just signed up last month I could have had one. It's only $10 a month.

Not necessarily - last month was my first month and I DID NOT get the Laura Gellar blush! I feel like almost everyone else did. I got an 'introductory' box with 'all-time favorites' that was pretty lame. I had my hopes up too :(

post #26 of 166

ohh i just got my email today! it'll b my first birchbox so im super excited!

post #27 of 166

I JUST GOT MINE! I got the Joya Parfum, Nuxe Multi Usage Dry Oil, Philosophy Facial Cleanser, Redken Shine Flash, YBF Beauty automatic eye brow pencil, and an extra - Kind Almond & Apricot fruit bar.

 

This is my first birchbox. I have to say I'm not OVERLY excited about it :/ I  was really interested in skincare/makeup. I'm glad I got the cleanser but I never fill in my brows as they are black and I feel don't need it (plus I sweat alot and the eyebrows end up getting wet and yea so I don't bother lol) The shine spray might be good I'll try it out and the perfume is good but I wouldn't say it blew me away. Not sure about the nuxe oil either. The bar looks good though lol. But again i really wanted skincare and makeup :/ oh well I hope next month is better. What did you all get?
