[haul] June Birchbox

4 years ago

I actually received my Birchbox sometime last week (Kind of late, don`t you think? With June half way over... Oh, well, at least I got it I suppose!). I`m not too excited about this box because there`s just a lot of products that I probably won`t use...

Here`s the product information that came on the enclosed card:
<li><strong>Eyeko | Skinny Liquid Liner</strong>
Direct from the UK, this user-friendly liquid liner has a genius pen applicator and a super smooth formula. Full-size, $15</li>
<li><strong>Melvita | Rose Floral Water</strong>
This organic mist works as a light toner and mid-day skin refresher. We also love the delicate scent. Full-size, $22</li>
<li><strong>theBalm cosmetics | Stainiac in Beauty Queen</strong>
We`re crazy about this two-in-one lip and cheek stain: the sheer gel formula delivers a subtle, long-wearing flush. Full-size, $17</li>
<li><strong>Yu-Be | Moisturizing Skin Cream</strong>
This bestselling Japanese cream has a concentrated formula that heals cracked hands, chapped lips, and other formso d dryness. It`s your new carry-on essential. Full-size, $16</li>
<li>*Lifestyle Extra*
<strong>BAND-AID | Cynthia Rowley Dress Up Band-Aids</strong>
Be prepared for life`s little emergencies with these stylish designer bandages. Pack of 20, $15</li>
<li>*Birchbox Man Extra*
<strong>John Varvatos | Star USA</strong>
In honor of Father`s day, we`ve included this dapper cologne, a blend of ginger, juniper berries, and vetiver. Pass it on to a lucky guy friend or family member. Full-size, $55-70</li>

Like I said, I probably won`t use many items from this box.

I`ve recently been using Jurlique Rosewater Mist and it`s really nice and doesn`t compare to this Melvita mist. The scent (despite what the card says) is actually really heavy and musky. I don`t like it :/

I don`t really like lip/cheek stains because they always end up being too dark for my taste (like when applied to skin, it is too dark). I like the subtle lip/cheek color.

I guess the bandaids are useful, although I really can`t believe that this little box is usually $15! Who would actually pay $15 for these?! I haven`t tried the eyeliner or moisturizing cream yet, but they look like something I`d probably use. I`ve heard good thigns about eyeko, and who can`t use a lotion to carry around in your bag?

The Birchbox Man Extra is pretty useless too, though. All of my family members have their own scent that they like, and I can`t think of any guys I know that wear this type of scent so that`s a waste as well.

I guess being able to use half (3 out of 6) items is still pretty good. Too bad, they`re the smaller items (the Yu-Be cream is in such a small tube!)

Do you subscribe to Birchbox? If so, what did you get this month?
