August Birchbox

My August Birchbox arrived today. I always get so excited when I see the box in the mail :)

This month the box theme was Beauty School Supply Kit. They are working with Pencils of Promise this month. All month, Birchbox will donate 15% of proceeds from the Birchbox shop to Pencils of Promise with their goal to be able to build a school in Central America. It only takes $25,000 to build a school! Visit for more information on this organization.

Onto the box...
I love saving the boxes each month, never know when they might come in handy!

Upon opening the box, there is something a little different than normal. Before there were post cards with product information on it. This month there is a pamphlet with information on various topics - tools of the trade, how to read a label, 5 tips to a better shave, makeup quick fixes, and super speedy skin care. 

On the back of the pamphlet was the supply kit list.

Full size costs $38 for 250 ml

Labeled as a Birchbox Finds...
Schick Hydro Silk Razor
"We scour the high-end beauty world for products you need to try. Like right now. But we also keep an eye out for affordable finds that will improve your day to day, like this new razor by Schick. The water-activated serum moisturizes skin while you shave, and the innovative oval-shaped design hugs tricky areas like knees and ankles. We're adding this trial to your usual sample haul because we think you'll love it.

There is a $4 off any Schick hydro silk refill coupon and a coupon for $0.55 off any Skintimate shave gel on the back too!!

I looked on CVS's website to see how much these cost in the store. You can get one there for $12.99. A box of 4 refill cartridges costs $17.49 at CVS.

So excited to give the razor and other products a try! I am in need of a new razor anyway so this came at just the right time! I already used the perfume - love the smell of it!
