Birchbox Review – June 2015

I think this illustration is so cute and I wanted to save it for something special but I got impatient/lazy and decided to use it today instead. Image from Birchbox app.

My June box was my 16th Birchbox!  Here’s what I got:

Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. This was my sample choice. These are made with Icelandic glacial water. (So bouge!) I appreciated that these are made with clean ingredients, but I didn’t see or feel any difference in my skin after using them. They did feel nice and cool, but so would a wet cloth. (So not bouge!)

COOLA SPF 50 Sport Sunscreen in Fresh Mango scent. This is a thin, lightweight lotion with a strong fruity scent. I am using and enjoying the sample but I don’t plan to buy the full size because it contains chemical (rather than mineral) sunscreen agents.

Temple Spa Good Hair Day Shampoo and Good Condition Conditioner. I was originally annoyed to receive more Temple Spa products from Birchbox but…I really like these. They smell like a fancy spa or an Aveda shop–that is, like rosemary, mint, eucalyptus, etc. Very nice! My hair feels clean and light. I would buy these.

Marcelle Mini Waterproof Eyeliner in shade Blue Lagoon. I just gave away a bright teal eyeliner during my Makeup Bag Makeover. I would have liked to try an olive green or burgundy or plum or navy liner instead. Teal looks little kid-dish on me.

Erickson Narrow Grab and Go Pony hairtie. This is a good hair tie–strong, thick, and grippy.

This isn’t the most exciting box I’ve gotten, but it’s not terrible. I will recoup $6 in review points, too, so that’s a bonus!
