And here is their little blurb about it:

It's finally July, which means summer barbeques and beach getaways are here and we're officially out of the office. Just Kidding! We're still hard at work BUT we do want to fit in time to play as well. That's why our theme this month is Power Play—meaning a move that maximizes your happiness or confidence. With that in mind, we've packed this month's Birchbox full of beauty products that are sure to optimize your happiness and work-to-play ratio. Keep watching for products that will have you worrying less about your beauty products and more about having fun!

And please follow Spoiled Boxes because it would make me smile :-)

Here is what I got this month (Birchbox fixed the issue with my account so I am actually getting a July box-yay! It is July Box #39 and a bit of a snoozefest.):

    (MALIN+GOETZ) bergamot body wash
    Benefit Cosmetics Ultra Radiance Facial Re-hydrating Mist
    Birchbox Bobby Pins - Set of Six
    Ojon damage reverse™ Instant Restorative Hair Serum
    Pür Minerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40


  1. they need to not have some many varieties - I was looking through Zadidoll's list of all the boxes and 54 is just overload. I am also getting one of the ones that is not as "exciting" - Box 19 (was really hoping for the Wei products, or at least something without the silly bobby pins):

    Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream (I'll give it a try)
    Caudalie Divine Legs (looks fun but of course it's a foil packet)
    Birchbox Bobby Pins (just no)
    Color Club® Wanderlust Collection (WTF I got this last month, and I got the boring shade!)
    ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick (I'm a lipstain girl, not lipstick)

    Hoping something will wow me, but sadly not as excited about this month's box :-(

  2. I think hoping against bobby pins was a lost cause ;-) I definitely would have preferred your box to mine, for the lipstick and, even though we got it last month, the color club. I bought the little set for that collection and LOVE the colors. Though I have not tried Mod in Manhattan yet, which I am assuming is the boring shade you got last month. Even though Reign in Spain is really similar to Flip Flop Fantasy from China Glaze, I freaking LOVE it! It is less pink than FFF making it just different enough to be interesting to me. Let me know what color you get, the other 3 all have their merits. About the lipstick, one thing these boxes have taught me is to keep an open mind. That said, my preference is for lipstain too because I do not have to think about smearing or re-applying it that often :-) BB was just kind of weird this month.

    1. you are right - I actually did like my box this month! I didn't realize how bright the nail polish in the collection is - I have the mint green on right now and I LOVE it!! Might even try the Mod in Manhattan from last month. I also got the best color of the lipsticks - wore it yesterday and got it on again today. Not the greatest staying power, but perfect color for me.

      There were actually a hand full of boxes without the bobby pins - a girl can dream right ;-)

    2. That green is so fun, and I am wearing Mod in Manhattan right now, in a stripey design with a violet and a fuschia. People are realllly loving that lipstick. To improve staying power try a lip primer or a bit of foundation (I know, but it works) as a base. I got the super exciting WHITE bobby pins! wooHOOO!
