Birchbox Review – June 2013 – Monthly Beauty Subscriptions
The June Birchbox is the first month with their redesign – what do you think? I’m definitely a fan of the new boxes! Given that Birchbox was pretty much the original beauty and makeup subscription box service, I guess it was time for them to mix it up a bit!
The Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month (free month with an annual subscription)
The Products: Beauty and lifestyle samples.
S.W. Basics Citrus Lip Balm – Value $4
So far, I am very pleased with the sample sizes in this box! I love Color Club nail polish (It’s one of my favorites for a long-lasting chip-free manicure). This pistachio mint-green shade will definitely be fun to try! I also love S. W. Basics products (they are made with very few ingredients, and everything is always organic or natural).
Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser – .25 oz Value $2
Tweezer Man Itty Bitty Nail Files – Value $5
More products I love! I first discovered this Suki Cleanser in the April New Beauty Test Tube – and the fresh lemon scent alone is enough for me to love it, but it actually is a fantastic gentle exfoliator too! And I love the cute paw prints on these tiny purse-sized nail files.
Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – 50 mL Value $6
This is pretty much the only product that is completely new to me – and I’m very excited to try it. The reviews I read on Birchbox said the Kholane spray is great for adding volume and texture. I hope it works!
This box also included these fun postcards inspired by the four Birchbox global offices.
Verdict: This was definitely the best Birchbox I’ve received in a while! No foil packets (yay!) and I will use everything in this box! I paid $10 for this box, and received over $20 worth of items I will definitely use. I couldn’t be happier! (Now I can’t wait to see what’s in my second Birchbox subscription. Hopefully it gets here Monday). What did you get in your June Birchbox?
