June Birchbox Review

 

June Birchbox Review 142 June Birchbox Review

Every month I get excited when my Birchbox arrives in my mailbox! June’s Birchbox was reporting to be a good one after reading posts from followers on Facebook, however I am not entirely thrilled. What did you get in your June Birchbox? Here is what I got in mine.

Borghese Botanico Eye Compress

June Birchbox Review 111 300x225 June Birchbox Review

What It Is: These are gel soaked pads that have witch hazel and goldenseal extracts to help with tired eyes.

My Thoughts: These might come in handy after I have my second baby in October when I will be sleep deprived. I thought these were great, they had a nice cooling effect when you applied them.

Price: $51.00 for a pack of 60.

Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint

June Birchbox Review 81 300x225 June Birchbox Review

What It Is: A moisturizer and a tint with an SPF of 30!

My Thoughts: I am pretty much in love with this! It did a fabulous job of giving my skin just a boost of correcting while adding that glow to my skin. I also love that it is an SPF of 30!

Here I have the Jouer Moisture Tine on the Right side of my face so you can see the difference. It did a great job!

Scalisi Skin Care

June Birchbox Review 4 300x225 June Birchbox Review

What It Is: This is an anti-aging moisturizer with an SPF of 30. It has four different peptides in it to reverse the signs of aging.

My Thoughts: While I only have used this a few times, I like that is has the 4 different Peptides and the SPF 30. When you apply it, you can definitely tell there is an SPF involved. However it doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy.

The Balm Cosmetics- Stainiac in Beauty Queen

June Birchbox Review 6 300x225 June Birchbox Review

What It Is: The Stainiac is a Lip and Cheek Stain in a gel form.

My Thoughts: I actually really liked getting this, it gives a subtle tint to the lips and stays on even after eating!

Here is the Stainiac on my lips.

Cynthia Rowley Dress Up Band Aids

June Birchbox Review 21 300x225 June Birchbox Review

What It Is: Designer Bandaids

My Thoughts: Ummm…huh? Isn’t this a beauty box? I didn’t know I signed up for an emergency kit with bandaids I don’t want to use because they are $15.00 for a box of 30.

Rating: This just isn’t going to work out (1 point)

Here is my $0.50 bandaid I don’t want to bleed on.

Birchbox Man Extra

June Birchbox Review 12 300x225 June Birchbox Review

What It Is: A cologne that has a blend of Juniper, Ginger and berries.

My Thoughts: I realize I have a husband, but I kind of want to be selfish and keep these goodies to myself. So no more men’s samples please.

Rating: I don’t think this is going to work out (1 point)

 Overall Thoughts, Opinions, and Ratings 

While I really did find some thing’s that I loved, there were the items like Bandaids that kind of killed it for me. Especially when I saw the epic full size items other Birchbox subscribers were getting. I am not going to lie, I was a teeny-tiny bit jealous.  I will get over it though and hope for a better box next month.
