Birchbox Breakdown

For creatures that exist only in folklore, mermaids have a remarkable eye for enduring beauty trends. (Case in point: they pioneered beachy waves long before they were cool.) And let’s admit it: we never really outgrew our wish to be transformed into one of their kind. From sea salt spray to waterproof liner, this box is a modern take on the mermaid tropes we all know and love. It’s guaranteed to help you make a splash this summer—even if the nearest beach is far, far away.

How it Works

This grouping is perfectly timed for summer fun. First up, there’s RUFFIAN’s exclusive nail polish trio, which combines a longwearing formula with tropical-inspired shimmer. Before you hit the beach or pool, reach for Vasanti’s Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil in Electric Navy, which boasts a waterproof formula that lasts up to eight hours. Pair that with Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat, which instantly waterproofs any mascara, and you’re good to go (swimming, that is). In lieu of an ocean breeze, there’s Davines This Is a Sea Salt Spray, which transforms limp hair into effortless, beachy waves, and COOLA’s Liplux SPF 30 Original Formula, full of organic botanicals to hydrate and protect lips. Top things off with a spritz of Atelier Cologne Cédrat Enivrant Cologne Absolue Travel Spray, a citrusy scent that smells like summer in a bottle. Designed exclusively for Birchbox, Stephanie Johnson’s Mermaid Mirror is perfect for on-the-go touchups. Simply toss it in your beach tote and keep on swimmin’.

I received this right before I left for a week at the beach. It was perfect. I loved everything in it, which never happens. I especially loved the sea salt spray.

Best Birthday Present
Purchased

My husband got this for me as a birthday present this year. I love every piece of it! I've been in love with The Little Mermaid and all sorts of mermaid related things since I was very little, and this is a wonderful way to enjoy that as an adult. The fragrance is light and lovely, lip balm has spf without that strong sunscreen taste and smell, hair spray works like a dream on my fine and wavy hair, eyeliner glides on smooth navy and brightens up with that awesome smudger, the mascara actually holds true to what it claims, and the mirror is as cute as it can be. Well done Birchbox. Well done!

Great for a beach getaway!
Purchased

Loved this set! The nail colors are a little dark but definitely fit on a mermaids tail! They cover great with only one coat! The liner is fun and glides nicely, and the sharpener is very helpful! I love the scent as it reminds me of the beach! I loved it so much I sent one to my niece before she went to st Thomas! She said the waterproofed worked well! And the lip balm is light and lasting!

Mermaids are coming back
Purchased

I bought this box on a whim and I am so glad I did! I have used and love every item in this box! My favorite is the nail polish. The colors go famously together and the polish stays on without chipping. I'm also a huge fan (and user) of sea salt spray. The fragrance is a great summer scent and the eyeliner is a fun color that I wouldn't have thought of using but really works to bring out the blue in my eyes.

If you're looking for a great box, this is the one!

Fantastic Value , Wonderful products
Purchased

I was totally excited to finally get this box in the delivery today. I am super ecstatic to try everything out. Such an amazing value and the eyeliner is something I was definitely looking forward to play around with. The only thing I was expecting but didn't get in the box was the captain blankenship sea salt spray. Instead I got Davines sea salt spray , still smelled fabulous. Very very happy :)

Amazing value
Purchased

This set was a home run for me, the only product that I did not absolutely adore was hair spray but that's because my hair is kinky. My favorite item was the atelier cologne both my husband and I love to wear it and he's super picky about fragrances:-) that alone is worth $25 if purchased separately... This was my first birchbox limited edition box - It makes me wanna get them all.
