My June Birchbox was packed full of stuff this month with a total of seven items! I think six was the most I had got in the past.
Birchbox is a month subscription service for both men and women. They offer deluxe beauty, grooming, and lifestyle samples based on your personal profile. They also offer cult brands, as well as up and coming lines.
The box is 10.00 per month for women and 20.00 per month for men. My husband got a men's box a while back and it was very nice, he even got earbuds made from wood which I think I like as much as he does.
He never really uses samples though so I discoutinued his box but I still get mine every month.
My favorite thing about Birchbox is that they have a point system for reviews, and the points add up super fast. You can then use the points in their shop. They have a nice shop with a lot of items. In fact I have not purchased nearly as much as I used to on Sephora because I am not getting the same items from Birchbox shop using my points which often times makes my item free, and if not at least very discounted!
So here is my box for June:
This month's theme (there is always a theme) was Away We Go, travel ready samples.
My box had the following:
Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser
Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo, Conditioner, and All in one Milk
Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream
Joie Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum
LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil
I did not care for the Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleaners but only because I can not stand the aroma of lemongrass and it had a lemongrass scent. Otherwise it works well.
The Shampoo, Conditioner, and All in one Milk are all pretty good products but not as good as the Madison-Reed shampoo and conditioner or the Caviar CC Cream I already use.
The Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream is a total win! I have ultra sensitive skin as well as psoriasis and so far I am loving this stuff! I may have to buy some when the sample is gone.
The Joie Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum was alright but not for me personally. It has a very fresh scent and is a great summer perfume for the right person.
The LAQA & Co. Lip Lube works really well. I was not too fond of the color really but it has some incredible lasting power! It also is buttery smooth. I took some photos... the top photos are of when I first applied it. The bottom two photos are as such, bottom left is after a full day of wear, rescuing a baby bird, taking it to the vet office to be taken to a bid sanctuary, then eating a giant artisan wrap from the local coffee shop. I also had a blended latte. I wiped my mouth many times while eating that wrap - it was soooo good! As you can see, my lips were still lightly stained with color. The bottom right photo is after adding just a touch of clear gloss, it seems to have liven up the color some. Sorry the lighting is different in the photos but either way I was impressed with the staying power of this lip lube. I will probably buy it in a color I like more.
Birchbox always has some great deals and coupon offers to take advantage of.
One of them right now is 10.00 in points (store credit) with the purchase of a subscription. That means you pay 10 for the sub but instantly get 10 back in points (100 points as each 100 equals 10.00). Use Code: BBJETBLUE to get this offer.
Another code is HERSUMMER50 which can be used to get an extra 50 points on any purchase form the Birchbox shop over 50.00 which means for a 50 dollar purchase you would end up with 10.00 in points instantly!
As I have stated in other Birchbox reviews, the big draw for me is not only the array of new to me products that I get to sample but the points system makes it a total win! I usually can get one or two full size favorite items every couple of months absolutely free!
