So I just got my June Birchbox in the mail today. One thing I will say before I start in on what I got in the box is that Birchbox should have a way to make the value of everybody`s box the same or about the same. I know a lot of people hate that some get a box worth $50+ dollars while others get a box valued at $15. Yes every box you get at least $10 (there have been some that barely make it past $10 though) but I see why people are annoyed. I am a little annoyed by it. Anyway on to what I got in my June 2012 Birchbox oh & the theme was Jet Set.
Ada Cosmetics Bronzer mine is in the color golden bronzer 1 gram is what I received full size is 3 grams & costs $12.45. I don`t really use bronzer & this one is shimmery very shimmery from the looks of it I haven`t opened it yet. So I don`t know maybe I can use it as an eyeshadow. It is a talc free mineral powder if you are curious.
Likewise facial moisturizer + sun protectant SPF 50 Normal to Dry. Size .15 fl oz. Full size is 1.6 oz & costs $44.
Masqueology Brightening Mask. 1 mask. Full size is 3 masks and is $24.00
theBalm cosmetics stainiac in beauty queen. Sample size 0.04 oz Full size is 0.3 oz & cost $17. I actually love theBalm so I am happy I got this product to try.
Cynthia Rowley dress up band-aids. Birchbox has lost their minds obviously because they claim a pack of 20 band-aids which is what I received is $15. Really Birchbox? Really?!?! I saw the same band-aids 20 count and everything at Target for $2.50 & CVS had them for $3.89 I believe. Neither of which are close to the $15 Birchbox is claiming. I wonder if these are in the birchbox shop & how much they are charging there. I will say if you want these band-aids your best bet is going to target or cvs they are much cheaper there.
I also got some card for http://artspace.com for $25 off your first purchase plus be entered to win $5000 in art. No thanks birchbox. I had a look around and the cheapest thing on the site started at $75 I believe & I didn`t like it at all. Most things on there that I saw were $1000 & over. If you are interested though go to http://artspace.com/birchbox & sign up.
This is prob the best box I have received so far but only because it has something from theBalm which is the only high end brand that I can say I love. I will try the mask but I don`t see how in one use you are going to see a result of bright skin even skin tone or any of the other things they claim. The moisturizer I will use because I have dry skin so I can always use it but I doubt I would pay $44 for a 1.6oz bottle. The bronzer I will try it as an eyeshadow if it is pigmented enough otherwise I don`t know what I will do with it. The band-aids...ehh I know some people were crazy about them but they are just band-aids which isn`t something I use all that often. (Now that I said that I am going to be getting little cuts all the time lol I just jinxed myself.)
I haven`t made up my mind if this is the last birchbox for me or if I will get one more to be able to have enough in birchbox points to get wonderstruck perfume & then cancel.. I know next month they are teaming up with Glamour magazine & are already hyping the box like they did with the Gossip Girl box which was a huge let down after all their hype. (Unless you were one of the lucky ones to get a full size Stilla eyeliner or deluxe Dior mascara which I wasn`t.) We will see right now I am thinking I will stick it out 1 more month but unless I forget to unsubscribe in time I will not get another birchbox after July`s box.
Did you get a June birchbox? What did you get? Oh & if you are curious the weight of my box was 0.5030 if you are trying to figure out what could be in your box.
Coming up next I will have the June Myglam bag which I also got today. So be sure to check that out in a little bit.
Note: I paid for birchbox subscription with my own money. All opinions are my own. keep in mind this is a reaction & showing what i got not a review since I obviously haven`t used any of these products yet since I literally just got the box & opened it. Also all pictures I took myself for this post.
