Even though the summertime is full of vacations, half-days, and good weather, somehow we’re more exhausted than ever. (Actually, come to think of it, maybe it’s all the moving around we’re doing….in the heat.) It’s important now more than ever to pack your beauty arsenal with products to help you rejuvenate and unwind.
We’ve got your R&R needs in mind, which is why we tapped our July collaborator, designer Cynthia Rowley, to create a limited edition Tip to Toe Treats box full of products to bring the restful spa experience to your home. There’s AHAVA’s Placid Bath Salts to give you instant zen while soaking, as well as AHAVA’s Dead Sea Mud, which helps to purify the skin and cure sore muscles. There’s also LATHER’s Lemongrass Body Scrub for zesty exfoliation and LATHER’s Hand Crème with Evening Primrose to make your skin soft and supple. Finally, there’s a special set of Incoco nail art strips featuring a customized Cynthia Rowley print and even a helpful Tweezerman file to help you keep your manicure looking good.
What’s especially fantastic about this assortment of good-for-you goodies is the value: all six products for $38! We know a good deal when we see one and this is unbeatable. Buy your limited edition Tip to Toe Treats box today before they sell out and be on your way to a more rested and relaxed state.
Well, kids. It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for — July Birchboxes are heading out the door! We know you’re excited about our special Cynthia Rowley collaboration and you only have to wait a little bit longer. The first big wave of boxes went out this morning, and the rest will be on their merry way by Saturday morning. One exception: if you signed up for the first time in July your box will be on it’s way next week.
Fun fact: This is our eleventh shipment! We’re coming up on our one-year anniversary in September…and we have big plans. And keep an eye out later this month for our Limited Edition Cynthia Rowley Tip to Toe Treats Gift Box, a special collection of products for hands, feet, and body!

Birchbox’s staff happens to be overwhelmingly female (no shock there) so if we’re not talking about beauty, chances are we’re talking about fashion (or tech, or start ups…). We especially love when two of our biggest interests collide, which is why we’re exceptionally proud to be partnering on our July box with one of our favorite designers, Cynthia Rowley.
For years we’ve loved her lighthearted feminine aesthetic, and no one appreciates her use of vibrant colors more than we do. Last week, the designer showed her resort 2012 collection, which is full of eye-catching patterns and unusual details, and we especially loved the billowy canary yellow cutaway maxi skirt—something right out of our dreams, to be sure.
While it was hard to get past all the pretty clothes, we were struck by the beauty look. The models’ eyelids were awash in a hot pink shadow that dramatically winged out. It’s not a wearable daytime look, but super-fun for a summertime evening event and I bet you could get that exact same effect using Makeup Forever’s eyeshadow in Neon Pink 75.
