June 2014 Birchbox

It’s the second week of the month and that means Birchbox time. My box got to me in 3 days this month! Speedy!

Birchbox Away We Go

June’s Away We Go theme is about travel-ready samples and on-the-go inspiration for road trips or “staycations.”

Cynthia Rowley Lip Stain
The first sample is tiny, but a good one. This Cynthia Rowley Creamy Lip Stain is very creamy and not sticky. You can sweep over lips for a little color or repeat for a heavier dose of pigment. I love the designer’s polka dot packaging which matches the eyeliner I got in April’s box.

Cynthia Rowley Valentine Swatch

This pretty pink shade is called Valentine and did leave a little stain on my hand after I wiped the product off.

Dr. Hauschka Body Wash

For body wash I feel like this Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Wash sample is in odd packaging and  fairly small. I’m also not a big fan of the ginger and citrus scent. If you are, instead of paying $22.95 for a full-size body wash, I’d recommend trying Ginger & Co. products.

Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum

I like perfume samples, but this one isn’t for me. Folle de Joie Eau de parfum is described as a fresh blend of mandarin, rose, and sandalwood.

Mally Volumizing Mascara

This full-size Mally Volumizing Mascara was a welcomed surprise in this month’s Birchbox. I only paid $10 for this box and this mascara alone costs $20. This makes up for the body wash and perfume.

Perlier Body Cream

I actually really like this Perlier Shea Butter Body Balm. It has a clean scent and is made with 100% organic shea butter and sweet almond milk. It’s very moisturizing, silky, and fast-absorbing. It’s not watery or greasy. If you suffer from dry skin, you’ll love this.

A full-size mascara made this box worth the money I paid for it. I also really like 2 of the 4 samples. Overall, not a bad month, Birchbox.

hey there. for mature or drier skin i like the lieloe triple solution bb cream.for oilier skin to normal i like the etude house mineral all day bb cream. Both are Korean. i? really don’t like any of the american lines. i just feel like they are tinted moisturizers.as for powders. just something light. brightning is good. but not for photos.
