Birchbox Review – June 2014
Birchbox is one of the original beauty sampling subscription boxes, and I think it will always be one of my favorites. Sometimes the samples are smaller than I would like, but I’ve discovered a ton of my favorite beauty brands thanks to Birchbox, and they have one of the best reward systems. (For every item in your box you review, you get 10 points ($1) to spend in the Birchbox shop).
This month’s theme is Away We Go – travel-ready products for summer adventures!
The Subscription Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month (get one month free and $10 to spend in the shop with an annual subscription!)
The Products: Beauty and lifestyle samples selected by the Birchbox team.
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and some tips on how to use them.
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain in Sugar – 2.25 g Value $9
Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream – .25 oz Value $3.25
I really like the shade of this lip stain – it is just slightly darker than my natural lip color – perfect for easy summer makeup. And I’m excited to finally try the cult classic Egyptian Magic cream!
Antica Farmacista Bergamot & Ocean Aria Body Wash – 1 oz Value $2.50
Miss Jessie’s MultiCultural Curls – 1 oz Value $2
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit – 1 oz + 1 Cloth – Value $9.50
I love the packaging of this little set and the product too! I’ve tried the cleaner before and really like it, so I’m happy to have another one, and my mom swears by Liz Earle moisturizer, so I may have to try that too!
Verdict: I am very happy with my Birchbox this month. I paid a little less than $10 for this box (annual subscription) and I received about $26 worth of items, plus I’ll get $5 to spend in the Birchbox shop once I review my items (This money stacks, so you can save all your points and get items completely free). I’m also really happy that I didn’t get any perfume or tiny samples this month!
What did you get in your June Birchbox?
