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—even if the nearest beach is far, far away. A $123 value!
How it Works
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’.
