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

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

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!

Rating: I Can’t Live Without You (5 Points)

This is what the Moisture Tint Looks like.

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

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

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!

Rating: I Think I Really Like You (4 points)

Here is the Stainiac on my lips.

Cynthia Rowley Dress Up Band Aids

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

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.
