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—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’.

I loved this box!
Purchased

I always love sea salt hair spray and the colors of the nail polish were perfect. The eyeliner brand was new to me. It was good to try a waterproof version. One of Birchbox's better boxes.

Great Mermaid Combo!
Purchased

I really loved this set. I loved the sea salt spray for beachy looking hair and the waterproofing cover for mascara. I have used up the spray already and also ordered another full sized one. This was a fun way to find some great new products and I am very glad that I purchased it. The mirror is really cute too!

Modern Mermaid makes a splash!
Purchased

The Modern Mermaid box was so much fun! My favorite products were the polishes - so pretty! The eyeliner is bold and beautiful. I love the mirror - I carry it with me at all times and it adds a touch of whimsy to my day. The sea salt spray creates lovely waves and the Atelier Cologne has a magical scent - both of which are day-makers. Overall, this box is a fun, uplifting treat!

I am SO happy that I got this limited edition box! The products in every Birchbox are always amazing, but this box was extra wonderful. The sea salt spray made the perfect beachy waves for my hair, and smells amazing! I don't normally use liquid eye-liner (because I'm not too good at applying it-lol!) but this one is great quality! The nail polishes are gorgeous, and the mini mirror is perfect for my purse! Every item in this box has been a major win, and I so look forward to even more limited edition boxes!

Perfect box for a beachy feeling!
Purchased

This was my first major purchase on Birchbox and it definitely was worth it. The plumping hair spray gives your hair a wind-swept beach feeling. The mirror is perfect for putting in my purse. I love the nail polish - goes on smooth and stays on for a long time. Beautiful combination of colors.

Awesome value box
Purchased

Gave this as a gift to a 15 year old for christmas and she was over the moon. The makeup items are great for any age but perfect for a teenager who wants to experiment with normal shades and colors. Would buy it again in a heartbeat. LOVE Birchbox sets - they are the best gifts ever!

Great Summer Fun!
Purchased

I thought this was a good box! I have already used up the sea salt hairspray (which I will buy again), and I love the perfume, which is citrus-y and cedar-y and not too sweet or flowery. The nail polish trio is gorgeous--the colors are perfect, and the polish goes on so well that you can get away with one coat! Love the beautiful mermaid mirror, which lives in my beach bag now. The eyeliner is fierce! And the waterproof mascara coating is a brilliant idea Enjoy this box--I did!
