Birchbox - June

Yay my 2nd month of Birchbox finally came! Always exciting to see this little box waiting for me next to Zoe when I arrive home! Here are the official descriptions of the contents in the box as well as my mini reviews.

1. Kate Spade Twirl - This Flirty scent feels carefree and joyful - just the thing to wear on your adventures at home.

- - My Review - Unfortunately I can not give a review on this product because when I opened the perfume booklet the actual perfume sample was missing! I was so bummed. I searched the entire box and they forgot to include the sample. I sent Birchbox a few days ago and I still have not received a response back. Bummer.

2. Laura Geller Baked Blush N' Brighten - Made in Italy, this swirl of warm and cool tones is infinitely versatile - dust your cheeks for a flattering flush or use the lighter shades as a highlighter.

- - My Review - When I opened my Birchbox my tanning loving sister was right next to me and when she saw this blush she gasped out loud. I am a NC 25 in MAC terms this was just too bronze for me. I was really impressed on the size of the blush that they gave me. I don't look good with a bronze glow or with a tan at all. My sister was beyond excited when I gave it to her. I am glad someone would put this to good use.

3. Sircuit Cosmeceuticals Molecular Mist - This high-tech spray uses heavy water to keep your skin hydrated all day. Use it pre-moisturizer, as an in-flight refresh, or to set makeup.

- - My Review - Must remember to spray a few more inches away from face. At first I sprayed it too close to my face and bam right in the eye. Moded indeed. I love the scent of the mist. Very reminiscent of having sunscreen applied all over my face during summertime when I was younger. It felt very refreshing. I sprayed it on around 9 a.m before my shift started at work and throughout the day the scent kept creeping up on me. After a long day around 6 p.m when I was clocking out my face still looked fresh. I am going to try it out on one of these hotter days and hope it went as well as it did on my normal day.

4. Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion - Infused with rosehip seed oil, this light moisturizer has tons of essential fatty acids and antioxidants to keep skin smooth and soft.

- - My Review - I still need to try this one out! :( So sorry!!!

5. Deborah Lippmann Stripper to Go Nail Laquer Removers - Fix your mani on the fly! Each handy packet contains a remover-soaked "mitt" that erases polish without drying out nails.

- - My Review - I can't wait to try this out! I will include a review when I finally wear some glitter polish and hope that it works as easy as it is described. I have always dreaded wearing glitter polish due to the removing part. :(

  1. Great box! I just got my box too but a few different items. I'm sorry though that you didn't have the perfume sample. =( I hope Birchbox gets back to you.
