Leavin` On A Jet Plane...June Birchbox

4 years ago

I came home from classes yesterday, and I was excited when I saw my birchbox. My box comes a little later than others, so I cheat and look online to see what came in my box before it gets here. I didn`t like what I saw online, but when I actually LOVED all the products I got...with the exception of the man fragrance....but I`ll get to that in a second. Anyways, this month`s theme was Jet Set and they had samples from all over the world (or at least I did). Here`s what I got in my box:

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream ($16) - Last month I got the Caudalie hand cream and this month I got another hand cream, which I don`t mind. I thought THAT was good, but this stuff is PHENOMENAL! The only thing that I can take away from this is that it doesn`t have a scent, but scent in a lotion isn`t a requirement for me. My hands felt like silk. This sample was so super small. I will definitely be getting a full size of this Japanese brand in the near future.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner ($15) - This was the product that I was most excited about! This was the full sized product (besides the band-aids). I was nervous when I saw my box online and the only available colors to buy from the birchbox store are olive and turquoise (both colors I don`t wear). When I swatched it, I was soooo happy and surprised to see a deep purple color. I`m wearing this today, and so far the wear is wonderful so far.

theBalm Stainiac ($17) - This is a gel stain that is in the color Beauty Queen. It looks like a deep red color in the tube, but it really sheers out when blended. On my cheeks, I have to REALLY layer this because this is so sheer and my skin tone is deeper (Mac NC50). I haven`t tried this on the lips yet, but hopefully I have better luck there.

Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids ($?) - These band-aids are super cute. The actual band aids have images of the runway, sequins, gold chains, bows and more. On the birchbox store, it says these band aids are $14!! But I knew that COULDN`T have been right, so I went to the Cynthia Rowley website, and they are only $5.00. I`m not sure what the $9.00 difference is on the birchbox store.....

Melvita Floral Water ($22) - This is a pleasant facial mist that has a faint scent of roses. It is a refreshing spray, but I`m not sure I can picture myself paying for rose water that I can make myself. I`ll use this on hot days when I know I`m going to be out for a long amount of time (as long as bees don`t attack my face!)

John Varvatos Star U.S.A cologne ($55) - I know they were sampling this in the boxes this month, but I really don`t know why....But anyway, I haven`t opened or smelled this yet. It won`t go to waste, I`ll just give it to my boyfriend.

I love to watch birchbox unboxing videos on YouTube. Surprisingly enough, I haven`t seen anybody with my box yet. Maybe someone who got the same box as me doesn`t make videos or blog lol. Either way, I am overall satisfied with my box.

What did you get in your box??


P.S. The actual picture of the birchbox is mine. The individual product images came from http://www.birchbox.com and the Cynthia Rowley image came from http://www.cynthiarowley.com
