Unboxing: Birchbox June 2014

Hello Birchbox. It’s nice to meet you. I’ve heard a lot about you. Birchbox is similar to IPSY in the sense that it’s a monthly subscription box that is delivered to your door for just $10. If you’d like to try Birchbox for yourself, click HERE. But without further adieu, my first Birchbox review for the month of June.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit – This. Is. Awesome! This alone is worth the price of the Birchbox. You apply the gentle cleanser onto your dry face and neck then wet the 100% cotton muslin cloth and use it to wipe all of your makeup off along with dirt and grime. It’s so much gentler than a scrub and still exfoliates. LOVE!

Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatment – The shampoo is a healthy sized sample and I’m glad they included the conditioner but I personally don’t like the smell. It’s a little too flowery for me but I can see other people liking it. I’m definitely going to try the hair treatment though because that’s been my new favorite beauty product lately.

Harvey Prince Hello – Ugh. A perfume sample? When you initially fill out your Birchbox profile there’s an option to receive only 6 perfume samples per year. This is my third box and third perfume sample. Meh.

Supergoop! Everyday SPF 30 – This is a small sample and also something I don’t really use. However, this is a good little size to pack in your purse and for travel.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner – I’ll never complain about eyeliner! While this is half the size of a normal stick, the formula is quality. I used it last night and it didn’t smudge or travel down my face. I like!

Over all the verdict is still out on BirchboxIPSY has more streamline brands while Birchbox is a little more high end. If Birchbox can lay off the perfume, I’d be a much happier customer. I’m still keeping my subscription and if you’d like one too, click HERE.
