Birchbox Crush: Meghan Markle of SUITS
You might have heard already (or received your July box), but in case you haven’t, here’s a quick refresher: This month we’ve teamed up with USA’s hit show SUITS in honor of the season 3 premiere, which airs tonight, 7/16 at 10pm ET!
If you’re as obsessed with the show as we are, you’ll understand why we’re crushing on the gorgeous Meghan Markle. We love the mix of her cool California girl attitude and ambition (not to mention her enviable style on the show). Her character Rachel Zane is smart, sexy, and driven, much like Markle herself. Surprisingly, Markle has some strikingly similar career experiences to her SUITS character—let’s just say she has a fascinating past working in foreign service. Watch the video to find out more about her unexpected path to Hollywood, her must-have beauty product and more!

You’ve undoubtedly heard a lot about basketball this past week and with good reason! But while everyone is focused on the games stateside, we tracked down one seriously awesome lady baller who recently returned from a stint playing for China’s premier women’s league. Naturally, this powerhouse player brought back another championship ring to place alongside her equally impressive NCAA, Olympics, and WNBA trophies.
Inspired? Us too! Find out more about this world-class player, her experience abroad, and her picks for the NCAA tournament in our one-on-one interview with Maya Moore.

This month, in addition to sending samples that are upgrades for your everyday essentials — like an amazing lip balm that puts Chapstick to shame and Italian toothpaste you wouldn’t believe — we’ve also got a special upgrade for your playlist. Danish singer Oh Land’s poptastic videos have had us tapping our feet and practicing our winged eyeliner for a few months now so we were ecstatic to have the chance to pick her brain about her favorite beauty products and more. Because we couldn’t profess our love for Oh Land without offering you a little something special, we’re offering a free download of her single, “Sun of a Gun.” AND, if you love Oh Land as much as we do, you can also download her brand new album, out today, for just $5. Visit our special download site to pick up both.

Wellness guru Melisse Gelula, co-founder of Well and Good NYC, takes her skincare very seriously. When I talked to her for this month’s Birchbox Crush, we spent nearly an hour chatting about different types of cleansers, exfoliators, oils, serums, and moisturizers. The big takeaway? Switch things up. Your skin changes from day to day, season to season. The products that work perfectly during the winter aren’t going to translate to summer. Thanks to her, I’ve swapped out my usual salicylic acid wash, which was too drying on my skin during wintertime, and am using a creamy cleansing milk by Dr. Hauschka instead. I’ve also thrown a face oil and rich moisturizer into the mix—both to great effect. Read her 7 Habits of Highly Effective Skincare now—it’ll change the way you think about your products.
