July Birchbox!

It has finally arrived! I came home after a long and not so great day of work , and found a lovely bright pink box waiting for me on the counter. My day immediately turned around. I grabbed the package and ran upstairs so excited to discover what was in the contents of my July Birchbox! This month was rather unique because all of the products in the box were picked by designer Cynthia Rowley! I love everything is this months Birchbox, and I am so excited to try all of the products out!






I have already tired a few items in my Birchbox and I love them! This morning I washed my face with the Philosophy Purity facial cleanser. It left my face feeling so soft and looking bright and refreshed. I am definitely going to start using this on a daily basis. I have heard great things about Philosophy products, but have never tried any of them out before. I was looking at their website, and there are a few products I am very interested in trying out, one of them being Hope in a Jar. Have you ever tried anything by Philosophy?
This morning I also ate the Kind bar. It was delicious! I checked out the Kind website to find where I could stock up. There are so many different bars and they all look so good! I want to try the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein and the Blueberry Pecan + Fiber. And I found a bunch of stores near me that sell them!
So far those are the only two products I have tried, but I will definitely be trying the rest out today! I can't wait to use the Korres shower gel with a new luffa I recently bought. The shower gel smells great! I am always stocking up on different scents from Bath & Body Works, but I'm excited to try something new. I am also really excited to try out the Redken Shine Flash 02. It is supposed to give your hair a "brilliant sheen." I will update my thoughts and opinions on the products as I use them!
The final product I received in my Birchbox was an eye brow pencil from Your Best Friend Beauty (ybf beauty). I have never used an eye brow pencil, but there's a first time for everything. I like that one end is the pencil and the other is a brow brush. So you have two products in one, which is less to carry around and you will always have both tools at your fingertips.
