June BirchBox

So I'm probably way late with this but I'd like to share with you all my June Birchbox. My box came in late due to a problem with UPS, but birchbox made it right and sent me a replacement.

What's birchbox? Well birchbox is a monthly subscription service which costs $10 dollars (shipping included). Every month you will receive 5 samples, some deluxe or even full size products. If this sounds awesome to you then sign up here.

Outer Box

Inner Box. I love the attention to detail!

Intro card with theme of the month listed
List of products received.



This month I received the following:

Borghese- Bango Di Vita Soak
These bath crystals feel amazing. They made my skin feel soft and smooth. I wouldn't say they made me feel like I was at a spa retreat as the info card said I would, but they are nice
Price: $35

Eyeko - Fat Eye Stick in Chocolate
I received the full size product of this worth $15 meaning my birchbox is already worth more than then the $10 dollars I paid. I really like this product. It's creamy but has opaque color. I was able to make. A subtle smokey eye look with this pencil. The directions say to use over primer or powder but I found it worked just fine on natural skin. I like that this pencil can make a whole eye look (just add mascara), it's low maintance which is great for summer.
Price: $15

Full Sized product

Hand Swatch
Blended on hand

Looks very natural on the eye especially if you have brown eyes

Smokey eye in a natural brown.

TheBalm cosmetics - Stainiac in Beauty Queen
This product is a lip and cheek stain in a gel formula. I have to be honest I did not like this as a cheek stain, but love it as lip stain. I felt the color was too dark for my cheeks and the fact that it stains leaves room for no errors.
Price: $17

On the skin

Blended into a stain.

Yu-Be -Moisturizing Skin Cream:
When I first put this on all I could think of was how medicinal this smelled. Its consistency reminded me a little of vasoline. It doesn't feel greasy and does make my skin feel soft, however, all other factors considered I will not. E buying the full sized version of this product.

Luna Bar- Chocolate Peppermint Stick:
I did like the taste of this bar. It wasn't overly sweet and had a great taste. It was chocolate and mint, but neither flavor over powered the other
Price: Pack of 15 $18.75

If you would like to receive a box like this every month, then go sign up here!
