July Birchbox: Side by Side

Do you remember doing "Spot the Difference" puzzles in the Highlights magazine when you were a kid?

We always thought these little puzzles were fun, and got super excited when we found all of the differences between the two pictures...even though sometimes...there was always a couple elusive/tricky ones that we couldn't find...and we had to turn to the back and cheat.  :)

We're all grown up now, though, and neither of our doctor's offices carry Highlights, so we're forced to play the comparison game in other we did with our July Birchboxes...our boxes really didn't match very much at all...and we love it!

Can you spot the differences in our boxes?

As you may know, the July Birchboxes were themed around appealing to all five senses.  Here’s a rundown of what we got for each sense:

We both got a set of Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds.  K's are pink and blue, while J's are pink and green.

Each of us got an Uber bar by Larabar.  K's was Roasted Nut Roll, and J's was Bananas Foster.  YUM!

Prior to this month's box, neither of us had ever owned a fragrance by Harvey Prince, but OH. MY. GOSH.  K's Flirt and J's Hello are both AMAZING.  Seriously...two of our new favorite scents...and you know how seriously we take scents!  SOOOO good!!

We love love love to see beautiful color, and fell in love with K's beautiful polish by Color Club in Age of Aquarius, and J's Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Olive.

We hit the motherload in the "touch" category, with three products each that appeal to our desire to feel fabulous!

K got:
  • Samples of the entire Suki Balancing Regimen for her face...woohoo!
  • Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo...which we hear blends perfectly with foundation for a highlighting effect
  • Gloss Moderne's High Gloss Masque for super shiny hair :)
J got:
  • Amika Obliphica Hair treatment for dry/damaged/frizzy hair (THANK YOU!)
  • Amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask
  • Boscia's B.B. Cream in SPF 27

At first glance, this really might be our favorite Birchbox month ever.  We are absolutely enamored with every single thing we got in our boxes, and know that we're going to use the heck out of everything.  We are THRILLED!
