Birchbox - Limited Edition Modern Mermaid

Now I couldn't say goodbye to Birchbox just yet. :')

Introducing the exclusive Birchbox Limited Edition Modern Mermaid box!

Birchbox is not only known for their wonderful monthly subscriptions but also their amazing limited edition boxes. This is the first one I've ever had a chance to splurge on and I'm super excited to open it!

I absolutely love the waves pattern on the box. Birchbox definitely went all out on the packaging to try to convince me that this is the real deal. Everything is just gorgeous and I haven't even seen the products yet.

Now onto the products. With three travel/deluxe size items and four full sized items I'm definitely going to channel my inner mermaid with this box. From parfum to waterproof eyeliner there's just so much variety to keep me interested.

I can never have enough nail polishes and I don't think I'll ever reach that point. I do remember the RUFFIAN brand way back from a previous Birchbox when they were first being introduced to the subscription. Sadly I received what I thought was a very unattractive color (I believe it was like a mossy green) but this trio is just lovely. I can't wait to try the blue lagoon color (on the far left)! 

Typically I like to purchase waterproof mascara but hate taking it off as it can be a struggle. I actually didn't know there was a such thing as a waterproof topcoat so I'm really looking forward to waterproofing some of my favorite mascaras that aren't already that way. 

I believe this is my second navy blue eyeliner that I've ever owned but I surely do love this one. It goes on smoothly and has an attached sharpener at one end and a smudger on the other! 

The COOLA lip balm is a definite staple to keep in my bag especially on summer days so this was a thumbs up. 

I absolutely love that the sea salt spray is made with natural and organic ingredients. It smells absolutely amazing (not like a day on the beach though) and the size was very generous even as a travel size option. 

The mirror is my overall favorite in this box. It's so iridescent and beautiful. Also a bit pricey for my taste but thank goodness it was included in this box. 

The cologne is also a great staple to throw in my purse on the go. It smells fresh and quite summery with a hint of citrus. Not too strong but also not too citrusy (I know what that smells like)! I really wish it was a bigger size so that I can make it last even longer. I highly doubt I'll be investing in the full size version anytime soon ($105 for 100ml) even though I'm considering it.

Overall I was super proud of the products and value included in this box. The card above is included in the box to describe each item in the box. Now the Modern Mermaid box only costs $44 which may sound like a bit much but you'll be guaranteed to received all these items that are valued up to more than $100! I can admit that I love every product (which is probably a first when it comes to Birchbox but sadly my last) and I'll be looking forward to improve my summer beauty routine.

Channel your inner sea goddess this summer! <3
