The theme of this month’s Birchbox is Wanderlust, which I think may also be a theme for my life. As soon as I return from one vacation I’m ready to go on another. If I were rich I would currently be taking a trip around the world.
But anyhow, back to this month’s Birchbox. I never got around to reviewing last month’s box and I wasn’t terribly impressed. This month’s box is pretty fab, though I’m obviously smitten with the theme of the box and therefore a bit biased.
Here’s what I received in the June Birchbox:
Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser: I actually received this in the HauteLook Beauty Bag I got a month ago, although I haven’t yet gotten around to trying it out. The cleanser itself contains micro beads that exfoliate at the same time that you’re cleaning. It also has a delicious lemony scent.
“Moo in Manhattan” Color Club Nail Polish: According to the description this nail polish is in “neon pastel shades,” but I don’t think that’s what I received (thankfully). My nail polish seems to be pretty neutral so I’ll definitely be trying it out when I return from vacation.
LAQA & Co Lil’ Lip Duo: While the official description says lip duo, I only received one lip product (intentionally, I think?). I like the size of this lip pencil, and it has a really creamy texture. The color isn’t necessarily my favorite (it appears to be Birchbox pink), but it could be better when layered with other products. (Though it’s only one half of the duo, this could be considered a full size product.)
Nautical Twist Band: I love it when subscription boxes send out Twist Bands, and this one is particularly cute!
Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk: I haven’t tried this dry shampoo and I’m excited to give it a go. I have crazy hair so really the only time I can use dry shampoo is when I have a blow out… which means it might be time for a blow out soon so I can see how this works.
These post cards weren’t listed on the description card, so I believe they’re just a freebie extra. If only I was visiting one of these places anytime soon!
All told, this is a pretty good Birchbox! It didn’t necessarily knock my socks off, but they did send products I’m looking forward to trying, and included a few new brands (Suki, LAQA).
Birchbox is a monthly beauty box that costs $10 per month. Boxes typically come with 4-5 deluxe beauty samples included.
