Birchbox releases Limited Edition boxes every few months and always around Mother’s Day. The packaging is great for gifting (or keeping) and I find their product mix to be on point. This specific one, Beauty In Bloom for $64, was … Continue reading
The Birchbox them for June was adventure and as usual they had a updated box to match. I was pretty happy with this months selections. For only $10 I love getting to sample new brands and products! Sign up here if you’re interested.
There was lots of blue in my box this month! Very summery and fun.
Temple Spa Good Hair Day Frequent Use Shampoo – This is for people who wash their hair often I guess? I shower every other day so maybe it would be good for me. I don’t like the scent however and have a lot of shampoo samples to use up so I will try to swap it.
Temple Spa In Good Condition Conditioner – This formula is supposed to hydrate, thicken, soften, detangle and protect from damage. It smells like mint which I really don’t like so it will be swapped also.
Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Blue Lagoon – Every subscriber got one of these instead of the promised Eyeko liquid liner due to customs issues. I’m ok with this because I know things can go wrong. I don’t love this as much as I would have an extra Eyeko but this is a fun bright blue for summer. I used it recently and it really does stay put.
Pura Vida Lace Headband – This is a lifestyle extra and I will use it. It’s pretty cute for a summer look.
Tocca Bianca Eau de Parfum – I love this brand so I am very happy I got so sample a new scent. I have the hand cream in this scent but it smells kind of different than the perfume. This a very light scent which is great for summer. This perfume has notes of lemon, green tea, sugar and rose for a clean and crisp scent.
Dr. Jart Dermaclear Micro Water – Cleansing waters are all the rage right now so this was my sample choice pick. This is my first time using one and I’m not sure if I like it compared to washing my face normally. It feels strange just to get everything off with this water and a cotton ball. It works pretty well to remove makeup though and does leave my face feeling clean. It’s sort of like a 3 in 1 because it also tones and moisturizes. I don’t think I would ever spend $32 on a cleanser though.
Overall it wasn’t a bad box even though I will be swapping the shampoo and conditioner. For next month the sample pick is the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in colors Beso, Venezia and Bella. I already have this in Beso so I know I love it! I’m choosing Venezia, a bright coral because I have nothing like it.
