Birchbox / June


I was so surprised when my hubby came upstairs with a box in his hand earlier today saying "honey you got this box....bir...I don't know it's pink" hahah I thought, could it possibly be...Birchbox?!?!? I was kind of shocked as I received a shipment notification email just today telling me I should expect my box on or by June 13. Wow, Birchbox you have impressed me quite a bit today! ;)

Here is what's in my box for June (and I am quite happy about them this time, unlike May's!)


Needless to say the highlight of this month's box is the gorgeous, full size Laura Geller blush/bronzer/highlighter in Honey Dipped. I'm happy that I received a full size product this month because I was kind of let down by not getting any last month. Not only is it full size, but it's absolutely stunning and perfect for summer! I'm also really excited about the Pangea Facial Toner as I am currently looking for a new toner, so it's a perfect opportunity to try this out to see how I'll like it. I have tried Pangea before, I love that they make healthier products that don't contain parabens. I've never heard of Amika, but I love trying new hair products so that's great! Twirl by Kate Spade smells amazing!



The samples I'm least excited about are the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads and Pangea Balancing Oil...meh. Towelettes and tanning just don't go together in my book. I'm sure there are people that this works for, but I feel like it'd leave me totally streaky. Pangea Balancing oil is too small to know whether it works or not, that's the reason I am not totally excited about it. Then again it's just the bonus sample ;)


Overall, I am happy about my samples this month. I hope everyone that's subscribed to Birchbox enjoys their box this month :)

If you're subscribed to Birchbox what did you receive this month? If not, do any of these products appeal to you or have you tried them before?

  13. I'm already in love with the LG blush, I hope you get your box soon and the blush too! ;)

  14. I think it's reasonably priced at $10, if you don't like it you can always cancel it :) There is so much hype about it on YouTube, that's how I gave in hehe I'm super excited about the powder :)

  15. It's my first time trying anything from Laura Geller, it's exciting! Yes I will definitely do a review with swatches, probably in a week or so. I think it's too gorgeous to not have a whole post dedicated to it :))

  16. It's definitely up to par with MSFs! ;)

  18. I couldn't have asked for a better box, well maybe a full size NARS blush :D I do love this one though!

  19. Thank you hunni, hey don't lose hope you never know! Maybe someone's thinking of starting a company like this as we speak, who knows!!! :)

  20. So far I haven't seen anyone who didn't get the blush, then again last month a lot of people including myself didn't get the Stila eyeshadow :/ I hope you get the blush though! :)

  21. Hey lady!!!! So great to hear from you, I was wondering about you! Congrats on your new place, and wow I'm so sorry about your back, wish you a fast recovery and be careful! Hope you come back to blogging as soon as you feel better and are all settled in your new place, maybe you can even show us your new place??? :) It's my first time trying LG products, so far I love this blush! I must look into their foundations and concealers too though, thanks for letting me know :) I hope you get the blush too, I hope everyone does :) Feel better soon hunni xoxo

  22. I think it is, I love the idea! I've never heard of new beauty test tube before but I love their packaging! I feel like $40 is a bit too much though, I kind of hate paying for shipping too lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. Cool, hope you enjoy it as much as I do! :)

  24. It totally is, and it's gorgeous! Last month was bit of a disappointment though, so I will need to wait and see how next month compares to make my decision whether I'll keep the subscription or not. This month was satisfying though, no complaints :)

  25. I am so glad you had a better experience this month than you had last month! I really like the concept of Birchbox, but some months are def. better than others! I can't wait for my box to arrive every month and check out my goodies! :)

    Ugh, I'm sooo jealous! I want that Laura Geller Baked Blush N' Brighten! I'm always on the fence about whether or not I want to do the whole Birchbox thing, and seeing what everyone got this month definitely made me want to!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I was really disappointed that I didn't get the Laura Geller blush thing. Oh boy was my heart set on getting it too!! I was so excited, then to open it up and to find instead I got a tiny-itty-bitty lip-gloss sample and I literally could have cried..:( Better luck next time I guess!

  28. So far it looks like it's a hit or miss, I'm sure you remember about my complaining about last month's box lol But the blush this month totally made up for it :) I wonder what will happen next month...Give it a try, you can always cancel it...I'm giving it a couple more months to make the final decision about my subscription :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh gosh, it's happening again! Last month many of us didn't get the eyeshadow, this month looks like there are actually people who didn't get the blush...I don't understand why! Did you get the eye shadow last month, could that be it? I just think it's so unfair, we pay the same price so we should get the same thing?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Me too, it's such a great idea! :) Hope you get your box tomorrow and get the blush - I hope the preview section on their website is accurate!

  32. the test tube program comes every 3 months, but I love the birchbox monthly concept. Love your blog, keep it up :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh I see, I love the Birchbox concept too...and just the overall idea of receiving a surprise box every month! :) Thanks so much!

  34. I think I got the same box as Angel - no Laura Gellar... which I was so sure everyone got from all the posts I read before receiving my package :( This was my first Birchbox -- I think for those of us whose first box was this month, we got sort of an 'introductory box' with 'all time favorites and a few travel-ready treats' (as the card says). Everyone else got the vacation-themed box with the Laura Gellar blush. I guess you have to pay your dues and go through some not so great boxes before you get the good stuff!
