I got my June Birchbox this week, and I wanted to share all the little goodies that came in it. This is just my second box, and I already love it. Even though I might not be crazy about every product, it's just a fun little surprise to get all wrapped up in the mail. This month's theme was "Summer Getaway", featuring products that are great to have in your bag when you're traveling. Here's what I got:
For some reason they included a men's cologne sample, I gave it to my man.
Cynthia Rowley designer Band-Aids. I was surprised they gave me a whole box, I actually needed these. I have a pair of shoes I'm breaking in and I get mad blisters on certain parts of my foot. Score!
Eyeko Liquid Eyleliner in Purple. I wasn't crazy about this at first because I don't wear eyeliner much. But I gave it a shot and the shade only looks purple in some lights, so it's actually very subtle. And this brush tip is so frickin' awesome.
Melvita Rose Water and tonic. Personally, I love this stuff. I've had cheap rose water from Chinatown in the past, because I love the smell of roses so much. But this stuff is so much better because the scent is lighter, less perfumey, AND it's organic. Some might think it smells a little "old ladyish", but I dig it.
Staniac Lip stain in "Beauty Queen". I actually really like this stuff. I don't wear lipstick at all, and I've been wanting to try a lip stain to see what they're all about. This one is great because it is really light and sheer.
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream. It's supposed to be from Japan and really great for your skin. It does feel lovely, but I don't know if I can get past the camphor smell, it just reminds me of Vick's vapor rub too much.
Overall, I was really into the different samples I got this month. If your interested in signing up for Birchbox, email me at laurenteresa86 (at) gmail (dot) com, and I'll invite you!
