July Women's Health Birchbox

 Disclaimer:  I purchased this.
July's Birchbox featured the second year of the Women's Health box, which included a free year of Women's Health magazine.  Confession:  last year I forgot to mail my free subscription card in so missed out on that feature, need to do it this year!
July also brought a new feature that Birchbox has adopted:  limited box customization.  I was given the choice of Ruffian polish colors from the Rapture collection, and selected the lovely metallic rose gold Rosary ($10).  This is the second Ruffian Birchbox exclusive polish I've received, but have yet to try either.  Need to get on that.
I love facial oils, so Caudalie's Overnight Detox Oil was a welcome sight.  The sample will probably only give me 2-3 uses, but OTOH, that's perfect for travel.
The Spanish brand Naobay is a new to me, but I'm liking the ingredient list with it's emphasis on Shea butter, olive oil and aloe vera.   Organically grown, to boot.
I have to give props to Benefit for their packaging - they really excel in that area!  What was a little funny was how little of the balm is contained in the super cute container.  Oh well, the swatches of the new Benetint balms I've seen are pretty sheer anyhow, so I doubt it will be a game changer for me.  I did read somewhere that they are meant to be layered over the respective lip/cheek tint, which makes sense.
I've grown fond of Beauty Protector hair products from receiving them as samples in Birchboxes, and the Treatment Mask is another nice item from their collection. I like the scent and it left my hair soft and shiny, so no complaints here. 
I'm too brain dead at the moment to figure out the box total value, but suffice it to say Birchbox continues to make me happy!  They've already sent emails with further customization options for Agust's box, but I decided I wanted to be completely surprised instead :-)

Also, don't forget to enter the giveaway for Clinique products!
