I’ve started really looking forward to receiving my Birchboxes every month. Partly because I’ve been pretty impressed with the contents and partly because the actual boxes they come in are so pretty lately. June’s Birchbox was curated by Meghan Markle from The Tig and each box contained a Say Yes giveaweay code (I won 10% off the Birchbox site). If you haven’t tried Birchbox yet, for $14.95 CDN/Month you get five deluxe beauty samples. You can find more information here. Here’s what was in my box this month.
Once again, the content card is so thorough I barely had to look in my box.
Beauty Protector Beauty Wash Body Cleanser
I love receiving shower gels in my subscription boxes and I’ve been really interested in trying Beauty Protector since you can only get them on the Birchbox site. But at first sniff, this scent isn’t for me.
Cynthia Rowley Brightening Illuminator
I don’t use a lot of highlighter or illuminators but I’ve liked everything I’ve tried from Cynthia Rowley (another Birchbox exclusive) so I’ll probably give it a shot.
PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray
I love a sea salt spray and I’ve heard a lot of good things about PARLOR. This spray smells amazing and does a good job of making my hair all beachy without being crunchy.
Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer
I appreciate that this cream is 98% natural and made with avocado and olive oils but it made my combination skin really sticky.
Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel
Anything with the word peel on it scares me a little but I’m trying to get past that, so I’ll probably give this a try. Though the idea of massaging my face for two minutes doesn’t sound great to me.
Emi-Jay Hair Tie
I appreciate bonus products but I hate ribbon hair ties, don’t use them and don’t actually know anyone who does. I’m trying to think of other uses for all the ones I have because they just sit there.
Overall this isn’t my favourite Birchbox but I do love that I haven’t previously tried all but one of these brands and they did an amazing job with the variety of products.
