June Birchbox

Thursday, June 21

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!


  1. This is an awesome Birchbox! I wish I would have gotten those band-aids in mine! You got a great box this month!

    Beginning With Becca

  2. i have been toying with the birchbox idea and now i realllyyy want to sign up!! so great!

  3. This is the first time I had heard about Birchbox, and I just checked it out. Neat concept!

  4. I've tried a sample of the Yu-Be cream before too. Same issue... the smell was too strong.

    That eyeliner sounds amazing though. I love eyeliner :)

  5. We must have the same profiles on Birchbox because I got the same stuff as you! I've only used the Rose Water spray and the band-aids so far and both are fantastic. The Rose Water spray feels great in this DC heat!
    Miss you, Lauren!

  6. That does it, I just need to sign up for Birchbox already! I think the Cynthia Rowley bandaids alone would have won me over ; ) But the lip stain and eyeliner?? Come on! Sounds great : )
