The July 2014 Birchbox is a collaboration with Women’s Health magazine! I’ve posted the first of two spoiler videos for this month (the second one has yet to be released). But here are some cool things about July!
1. Birchbox Plus is back again this month and there are three options for you to choose from! Personally, I would advise against all three add-ons. There have been issues with add-ons in the past and I don’t really find any of them worth it at their offered price. I would rather wait to sample the dry shampoo/buy it with points. The power card doesn’t have a lot of reviews online… and you can only use it to charge your smart phone up to 60%. The headphones aren’t interesting to me because I already have my favorite cheap earphones that I buy from Amazon.
2. Pick your own sample! All subscribers will be able to pick one item and the color of the item they chose! For this month, you can choose either a Ruffian Nail Polish from the Rapture Collection or a Cynthia Rowley Lip Stain. Obviously the item you choose won’t be in full size, but at least you get to choose! I think I’m actually going to go for the Ruffian because they’re great for trading. 😉 The Cynthia Rowley lip stain on the other hand is a small sample and I haven’t heard the best things about them from people who received them in June.
3. PROMO CODES! Get excited because there are FOUR different promo codes you can choose from if you want to start a new subscription with Birchbox. 😀 (reminder that you cannot stack codes and thus will have to choose wisely)
a) Use BBJETBLUE to get 100 points with your subscription
b) Use WOMENSHEALTH100 to get 100 points with your subscription
c) Use SUMMERSHAVE to get a free sample of Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream in Grapefruit
d) Use SUMMERSKIN to get a free sample of Supergoop Everyday SPF 30
Definitely pick A or B if you want to sign up! 100 points is worth $10 in the Birchbox shop. I believe if you sign up today, you will receive a June box. But I thought June had some awesome samples, so if you’d like to skip the waitlist, feel free to use my referral link! 😉 If you want a July box, you will have to wait until July 1st to subscribe, just to be safe. Birchbox used to have cut off dates, but there were people signing up on the last day of May who still got a May box.
HOWEVER… if you want to choose your own sample, you must subscribe by the end of today (June 24!) so it’s kind of a gamble… I have no idea what would happen (ie which month you would start with) if you subscribed today.
And here’s this month’s spoiler video for Birchbox Man!
You can also use BBJETBLUE to get 100 points for your Birchbox Man subscription! Yes, I’m getting a Birchbox Man this month because my dad and brother really liked the samples I gave them from May and June. And… also because I really like seeing what kind of lifestyle items are included! (plus, I can totally steal the body wash products and lotions, hehehe). I really hope that I get the Izola soap dish this month…!
