A few weeks ago, we announced our July partnership with Glamour, and we’ve been itching to share the juicy details ever since. Inspired by the mag’s July issue, which celebrates the five senses of summer, this month’s Birchbox is a multisensory affair. Boxes will be shipping very soon, so get excited and click through for more deets!
Glamour has been part of our required monthly reading for as long as we can remember. We’re psyched to announce that we’ll be partnering with the magazine for our July Birchbox. The box takes inspiration from Glamour’s Five Senses of Summer issue and is sure to provide full beauty immersion.
Since Glamour’s beauty editors (a.k.a. the Girls in the Beauty Department) test more products than even we do, we knew they’d come up with a stellar collection of must-try samples. And stellar, it is. We’re working with some of our favorite brands, including stila and Color Club, plus new ones like Alterna and Oscar de la Renta. There will be some tasty treats, too—you know how much we like our snacks! If you’re already a Birchbox subscriber, relax—you’ll receive the Five Senses box in July. Haven’t joined? Click here to get on the list!
We also have some exclusive content in the works, including an interview with Glamour’s completely fabulous beauty director, Felicia Milewicz, and summer beauty tips from the Girls in the Beauty Department. And, starting this week, we’ll be swapping blog posts with Glamour on a weekly basis—our version of sharing clothes with our roommates.
While you’re waiting for July to roll around, head to the Birchbox Shop and explore all of the travel-ready products we sampled in our June Birchbox. It’ll be next month before you know it!
It may be bikini season, but since I don’t lounge poolside everyday, I care more that it’s shorts season. As a fair-skinned gal and a major SPF nut, my gams are pretty pasty year round. (True story: I recently took a trip to Bermuda and a co-worker, trying to be nice, commented that I got some color on my trip. Completely horrified, I replied, “I hope not!”) During the summer, I rely heavily on self-tanner for to keep from looking ghostly.
This month, to go along with our Jet Set theme, we’re sampling Comodynes’ Self-Tanning Towelettes. As someone who has tried zillion and one faux tan products, I naturally wanted to test them out myself. I didn’t know what to expect from Intensive, their darkest shade, but I was very pleasantly surprised at both the ease of application and the pretty result. I have some tips for anyone who is intimidated by either the word “self-tanner” or “intensive.”
