Birchbox Special Box: Modern Mermaid

Summer is upon us and what better way to spend it by using some summery products!  Birchbox has put together an awesome special box to have you "swimming" through summer. 

Once in a while Birchbox puts together a limited edition box for a season, holiday or other special occasion.  I normally don't get sucked into boxes like this, since there are normally only 1 or 2 things that catch my eye.  However, in this box EVERYTHING caught my eye!

This box is still available for purchase in the Birchbox store, so check it out!

The following products are essential for a perfect summer...

Looking to spend a lot of time in the pool or local lakes-You cannot forget to apply Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat prior to taking a dip!

The summer sun (whether it's out in full force or not) can burn areas, that you didn't even know were possible!  Protect those lippies with Coola's Liplux SPF 30 Original Formula.  This lip product doesn't feel like sunscreen on your lips at all.  Provides a light moisture, however don't forget to re-apply throughout the day!

Summertime is the time to go wild with your makeup and try vibrate colors you typically don't wear. Vasanti's Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil in Electric Navy will provide your eyes with a mermaidesqe feel.  This waterproof eyeliner even has a sharpener on the cap for easy on the go application.

I don't know about you, but I love the way my hair looks and smells after being out in the sun or on the beach for a day.  Captain Blankenship's Mermaid Mane Sea Salt Spray provides just that.  This 2oz spray will provide just that and bringing back great memories of that perfect summer day.

Besides a colorful swimming suit, nothing says summer to me than colorful nails!  Ruffian has exclusively created a trio of colors for this box.  The Endless summer Collection sports colors such as, Endless Love, Blue Lagoon and Sahara.  Not sure which one to pick first!

After a day out in the sun, nothing is better than freshening up prior to going out at night.  Atelier Cedrat Enivrant Cologne Absolue Travel Spray.  This spray has a hint of lime, juniper and mint (my favorite).

Finally, you might be wondering how can I sport a lot of these products
without a mirror?!?!?  Have no fear!  Birchbox always remembers the fine details.  Stephanie Johnson has designed a "Mermaid Pocket Mirror" exclusively for Birchbox. This may be my favorite part of the box!

Hope everyone has a fab summer and what are some of the products you are using this time of year?
