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’.

Fab box!
Purchased

I loved this box! My favorite parts are the sea salt spray and the mirror -- but you really can't go wrong with the box. I was dubious about the bright blue eyeliner, but even that is a ton of fun!

Perfect Summer Box

The perfume is so wonderful and it has an earthy warm scent to it. The mermaid mirror is absolutely adorable and the eyeliner stays put until I take it off. I love this box and I highly recommend it!

This was a super fun box to receive. I liked every product in it. And the mirror is really cute. The three Ruffian polishes are my favorite. They provide good coverage with just one coat, and the colors are perfect for summer.

Great for Summer
Purchased

All of the products from this set were great! I think my favorite would have to be the Vasanti Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil in Electric Navy. Then the three, RUFFIAN Endless Summer Collection, polishes!

Great summer collection
Purchased

I received this box just in time for my beach vacation and I absolutely loved it. The nail polishes were beautiful and the waterproof mascara was just what I needed for some swimming action. The perfume smelled very citrusy and my husband loved it. Overall, just a great collection of summer themed items...
