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’.

so much fun! love it
Purchased

I love this box, besides the awesome concept and beautiful packaging. The nail colors are lovely- the formula looks nice with just one coat which is nice for vacation (reapplying). The sunscreen chapstick is good to have, looks cute and does its job. The mirror is so pretty and I get lots of compliments on it. Unfortunately it started peeling but it's still nice. The salt spray is fine, I don't use that too much. Same for the waterproofing- its a cool concept but my mascara is hard enough to get off as it is. I use it for brows. The liner is GREAT. I used it and someone later said I look like Mila Kunis's sister. Nuff said.

Mermaids are so hot right now
Purchased

I got this little box in the summer and everything in it made such a difference in my summer routine! Even in the winter when I wanted to spice things up and go for a shiny Frozen look the blues in this bad boy were perfect. The first time I opened my mirror I looked over and my boss's 5 year old daughter had her Frozen hand mirror too, and in that moment connecting over something so essentially girl-basic was a moment to remember.

Cute set.
Purchased

I purchased this for my niece as a pre- gift prescription birthday present to give her an idea of what to expect when her monthly boxes started arriving. She liked it and is hopefully enjoying her monthly samples as well.

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!
