Guess what day it is? GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS??
A BABBLEBOXX UNVEILING, that’s what 🙂 I’m super pumped about it, and I hope you are, too. This month’s BabbleBoxx was filled with all kinds of goodies for the warm summer months, and since we reached a high “feels-like” temp of 110 this past weekend (WHAT?!), there’s no better time than the present to bust out some of these products.
Let’s dive in!
These sunnies are adorable and very face flattering, if that’s a thing. I have a hard time finding sunglasses that fit my face and don’t overwhelm my delicate features (HA! Tell that to my schnazz!), but I have one pair of aviators that I’m ready to retire, so I’m glad I have a new pair in rotation. These sunglasses are fingerprint resistant and even come with an anti-reflective coating. You can also customize the tint to create your own signature look! Their philosophy that everyone should have access to high-quality, stylish eyewear is one that I can get behind, and they offer the largest selection of affordable glasses online.

I received three products by Colleen Rothschild in my Babbleboxx and I am very excited to try them all (in-depth descriptions to follow). My mother always taught me the importance of a proper skincare routine, and I always make it my mission to find products that are free of toxic chemicals, parabens, sulfates, and all the other stuff you can’t ever pronounce on labels. Colleen Rothschild products are a blend of plant botanicals and advanced scientific ingredients from around the world, and founder Colleen has created award-winning luxurious skincare that is the result of decades of experience in the field. Let’s take a look at the three products in my box!
Radiant Cleansing Balm: Can be used morning or night, this balm is activated when you place in clean, dry hands and rub together. Apply to dry skin and massage all over face. Next step: wet a cloth (muslin preferable) with warm water and wring damp—place over skin for a mini facial (seriously, how good does that sound right about now??). Wipe off excess and follow with a cool splash of water. Mixture of ingredients restore luminosity, combat dehydration, and calms/decongests skin.
Matcha Tea Treatment Toner: This is the second step to smooth, beautiful skin (I just made that up, but it sounds like something that would be used in their commercial, ha!). After cleansing, gently sweep on face/neck with a cotton pad, making sure to avoid eye area. Use morning and night for best results. The main ingredient, matcha tea, protects against free-radical damage while French algae absorbs excess oil, the prebiotic balances microflora, and fermented plankton delivers essential hydration.
Sheer renewal cream: Easiest one of all to apply—can be used morning and night by gently massaging on clean skin with fingertips. This cream is made with special ingredients that provide environmental defense and 24-hour hydration, accelerate cell turnover, and reduce appearance of wrinkles (yes, please).

Unwined by Hask
The sun does a number on our hair, and proper hair care is a must (looking at you, all my alpaca friends who haven’t let their hair down all summer, lol). Unwined has developed a a shampoo and conditioner made from, you guessed it, wine (!!) to help your hair rejuvenate, strengthen, and soften. What’s more, all items are free of parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol, and artificial colors but filled with wine extract, grape seed oil, and resveratrol instead to prevent frizz and restore hair. Furthermore, the smell is intoxicating, but without the added wine buzz 🙂
This is an anti-aging sunscreen that protects against the sun, climate elements, and pollution. It also is vegan (hey-o!), environmentally-friendly, and not tested on animals, which means it’s quickly climbed the ladder to my heart with its pretty blue packaging. I received a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 35, which is great for beach days now that I’m right by the lake and can take advantage of the cloudless and sunny days. Users can now get a 10% discount through the end of August with coupon code SUNNY! Out of curiosity, how many of you had a sunburn this season so far?
…is determined to get Paula Abdul stuck in your head for the rest of your day. It is also all-natural tea and made with real tea and simple ingredients. They also have different levels of sweet depending on your taste preference, including Unsweetened, Sorta Sweet, and Sweet. Nothing artificial, so you can cool off without the added guilt this summer.
And there you have it! Summer in a box. Which of these products are you most excited to try out during the warmer months? Let me know in the comments, and happy almost Friday, you guys 🙂
