My June Birchbox


This month's Birchbox theme was Jet Set: "this month's box is devoted to products that will indulge your inner jetsetter, from hardy formulas that can last throughout a long-haul flight to imported finds that we've picked on our global adventures." I'm not jet setting anywhere this month but I do make frequent trips to California to visit my sister so I'm always in need of travel sized products.

Since it was Jet Set themed... I did appreciate the small touches on the packaging like making the product card look like a postcard.

Apparently this tiny bottle is full size. It looks really dark but actually comes a great rosy color. Reminds me of Stila's Cherry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain, which is $24 for .08 fl oz.


I've only heard of the Comodynes brand because of the makeup remover wipes I reviewed. I like that these towlettes didn't smell like most self tanners do. I prefer the towlette application than lotion because you have to sit around and wait for lotion to dry. It definitely started to show color in a few hours; however, it kept getting darker. They have another shade "Natural and Uniform," which I want to try since I think that would look more natural on my fair skin.

Extras:


We all received this plastic bag that is supposed to store all your travel size liquids from tili. Pack of 9-12 costs $8.49 - $9.49. I'd definitely use this but not sure it will fit all of my beauty products.


They also threw in a Birchbox Man product, I received John Varvatos Star USA cologne sample. Notes included: Red Ginger Essence From Laos, Juniper Berries and Cedrat From Sicily, Blue Spruce, Green Cardamom, Osmanthus, Vetyvert, Belambre, and Tonka Bean From Venezuela.

What did you get your in your Birchbox this month?

  2. The towelettes look great. Not so happy about BB Man product because not everyone has a man in life to give it to. I do, but still, we subbed for products for ourselves, lol. The Stainiac looks like a great product!

  4. Jealous you already got your box! Looks like some good stuff! I feel like the tanning wipes wouldn't have enough lotion to cover a full leg?
