Beauty School! August Birchbox

Hey beauties! I'm back with another Birchbox :) This month's box was themed "Beauty School" which is just in time for the new school year! I knew last month's box would be pretty hard to beat, but let's see which items are my fave!
The packing for this month's box was too cute!!

A little booklet came that has all these great quick-fix beauty tips :)
The first item from this box is the Schick hydro silk razor. It has water-activated moisturizing serum, and it's supposed to be great for getting around all the curves on your legs. I'm going to give this to my mom, just because I have been using the Schick Intuition razors for years and I just find them to be the easiest to use. I still think this is an amazing value in the box!
This is one of my FAVORITE items from this box! This is the smudge stick waterproof eye liner by stila and it's in the color "stargazer." This is a crayon-type liner that goes on so smooth and is definitely long lasting! I just LOVE the specks of glitter in it! It gives a fun twist to the regular black liner. This will be perfect for fun nights or special occasion :) By the way, this is a full size product! This costs $20 in the Birchbox store!!! Such an amazing value in this month's box!!!
The next sample is by Yu-Be and it's the Moisturizing Skin Cream. According to Birchbox, this the best-selling Japanese cream. It's meant to hydrate chapped lips, cracked heels, or anything akin that's just in desperate need of repair. It has a really thick consistency and looks like Vaseline. It has a minty smell, like Vicks Vapor Rub. It's EXTREMELY hydrating and it's felt amazing on my hands!! I can only imagine how it'd make my feet feel extra soft! This is definitely a great product.
These are hand soap samples, by Caldrea. The scent is "Ginger Palmeo." These soaps are loaded with aloe vera and olive oil. The soap is thinner than most soaps, but feels really moisturizing even as you're washing your hands. My hands were left with this amazing and fresh scent! My hands didn't feel dry or harsh after washing. They felt really silky and smooth - something I don't get from regular hand soaps. Great product!!
Last product is another one of my FAVORITES from this box! This is a perfume called Viva la Juicy La Fleur by none other than Juicy Couture! It has a blend of wildberries, mandarin, and waterlily. It smells SO GOOD!!!
What I extra love about this sample is the fact that it has a pump! Most of the perfume samples just have those caps that you have to VERY CAREFULLY take off, or you'll end up spilling half of it (which usually happens to me haha). What can I say? You just can't go wrong with Juicy!! I am very, very happy about this sample!!

Overall, I loved this box. Clearly my favorites were the stila eyeliner and the Juicy Couture perfume. They're fabulous!
