Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy, a bold update to the original Juicy Couture fragrance, still incorporates the same floral bouquet as its predecessor, plus notes of creamy vanilla, rich caramel, and warm sandalwood. We feel completely feminine (and, truth be told, a little sassy) when we wear it. We’re also fans of the hefty glass bottle, which features sparkly gold charms and an oversized bow. Turns out, we’re not the only ones a little nutty for this fragrance. Check out what these Birchbox fans had to say: 

"I received this as a sample in my monthly Birchbox. I thought it smelled pretty darn good but I wasn’t expecting to get the reaction from my husband. He said, "Wow, you smell good. I really like that." Later on, he called me at work and said it must have rubbed off on him cause the (great) smell was driving him crazy—ha!"— Jenn

"Since discovering Viva La Juicy, I haven’t wanted to use another fragrance. To me, it’s fun and light but still catches the attention of anyone who gets a whiff. I wear it everyday and I have yet to get tired of it."— Gigi708

"I can be quite picky when it comes to perfume but I absolutely love this scent. Wearing it makes me feel feminine and sexy. Perfect for day or night, it’s bold enough that others will notice it but not so strong that it will make people run away :). Viva La Juicy is definitely a new favorite of mine and I am so happy I got a sample in box so that I could discover this gem." — Niki

Customer Love Notes: A Devilishly Cool Polish Collection

Last September, we teamed up with fashion design duo Ruffian on their very first nail lacquer collection. Ever since, Ruffian’s on-trend Crowdsourced Collection has been winning over legions of fans. Here’s what a few Birchboxers had to say: 

"Ruffian? More like smoothian. How was I blissfully unaware about to one of the glossiest, shimmeriest nail polishes ever!? I have the color "Hedgefund," a modest green color—I’d call it a feminine forest green. Love it. Plus, unlike most nail polishes, the wear and tear is at a minimum."—hilarying

"I just applied two coats of Fox Hunt RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer to my fingernails and I am in love. The color is perfect for fall without being pumpkin-y or school-affiliated burnt orange. The lacquer went on smoothly with full coverage and I found the brush easy to use, which is rare for this uncoordinated lefty. My nails look awesome in this color!"—GradysGal

"I love nail polish, but I am hopeless at making it look like the salon, even if I buy top-of-the-line brands. This polish is amazing. I painted my nails quickly before a week sailing in Greece. At the end of the week, this polish had BARELY even chipped!"-Ashley

These fan girls have convinced us—have you tried these miraculously long-lasting polishes?

If Lionel Richie’s 1984 hit taught us anything, it’s the importance of saying, “Hello.—and nothing says it better than this standout fragrance. A longtime Birchbox best-seller, Harvey Prince’s Hello perfectly balances top notes of Meyer lemons and Satsuma mandarin with summery floral scents like forsythia and pink plumeria. We could wax poetic about its hypnotic powers, but we’ll let these Harvey Prince fans take over:

"I don’t usually bother with perfumes, but this fragrance is so delightful it’s worth making an exception! The scent is light, dynamic, and distinctive. And while scents are definitely a subjective thing (my sister and I are constantly at odds over what scents we like and dislike), I can honestly say when I wore this everyone I interacted with commented positively on how great I smelled! - Beth

"Oh the wonders of Harvey Prince! This is the first perfume company I fell in love with. I love that it makes me [feel] more cheerful and bubbly—Any time I dread having to make an acquaintance of someone, I spritz a little of this and voilà! I’m suddenly much more excited and ready to take on the world. Thank you Birchbox for opening my eyes to such a wonderful fragrance, and thank you Harvey Prince for making such a perfect concoction! Strongly recommend!" Heather

"As one reviewer said, this is a very "optimistic" perfume, with wonderful floral and citrus scents. My boyfriend, who normally grimaces when I put on perfume, kept coming over to smell the scent! Definitely a keeper." - Kate

These ladies have us convinced—have you tried this one-of-a-kind fragrance?

This innovative scrub is formulated to give you professional-quality results at home, thanks to pharmaceutical-grade aluminum oxide crystals that remove dead skin cells and improve texture. And unlike other products, this one eschews sulfates, phthalates, and synthetic chemicals. As if flawless skin weren’t enough, it also leaves behind an invigorating citrus scent. But don’t take our word for it; check out what some of these Dr. Brandt fans had to say: 

Without a doubt, this is the best exfoliator I’ve EVER used! I love the fine crystals - they don’t hurt, but you can feel them exfoliating as you scrub. I also love the tingling fresh feeling you get on your face after you rinse it off. It also rinses cleanly, which is a huge bonus. The price is a bit prohibitive, but this product is MORE than worth it. LOVE IT!- Becs

"So happy I had this in my box. I had just used my last bit of exfoliating face wash so this was a nice surprise. I love the lemony scent and how my face felt like it was washed with peppermint. It’s a great way to wake up in the morning! My skin felt very clean and soft after using. I actually want to use my points on this one!"Colby

"I’ve had microdermabrasion done in the doctor’s office, and Dr. Brandt’s product definitely compares well. I like the texture of the cream, and the fragrance is light and fresh. Overall, the finished product is super smooth, glowing, youthful skin!"Mom2Boys

Made with just the right amount extra-fine shimmer to boost radiance without being sparkly, Manna Kadar Cosmetics sheer glo shimmer lotion subtly reflects light to make your skin look fresh and youthful. Here’s a peek at what one love-struck customer had to say about this versatile highlighter: 

"I have been using the same liquid luminizer for a long time and had never found anything else that could compare until I tried the Manna Sheer Glow! It’s lightweight, blends easily, and leaves a nice glow without being overly shimmery or glittery. Some luminzers make you look oily, but this gives a sheer, soft glow. I finally used up my sample (a little goes a long way!) and am now looking forward to the full-size!” Donna

Unlike those other guys,Dr. Lipp’s lip balm won’t leave you high and dry. Rather, this all-natural salve is clinically proven to repair rough, flaky lips and smooth dry skin patches. (You can even use it as a stand-in for cuticle oil!) Originally designed for nursing moms to heal sore nipples, it quickly become a cult favorite of savvy makeup artists for its ability to soothe and prime. Another convert to the cult of Dr. Lipp’s? Subscriber Erin Carroll. Just check out what Erin had to say about his pout saver: 

My lips are almost always dry and chapped. I’ve used up entire tubs of vaseline trying to moisturize them but I still wake up with lips that are less-than-kissable. Dr. Lipp’s has changed my lips completely and I could not be happier. A little goes a long way, so I feel like the product is worth the price. It has been added to my nightly routine and I have to apply lip balm during the day a lot less frequently. Love Dr. Lipp’s!”
