My June Birchbox

This month's Birchbox theme was travel - Away We Go. "Dust off your carry-on. It's the season for road-tripping, destination-hopping, and of course staycation-ing. That's why we're bringing you travel-ready samples..." It was pretty fitting that they partnered with JetBlue this month. Here's what I received:

A Birchbox exclusive so couldn't find it anywhere else. It's described as a "multifaceted perfume has citrus top notes that open up to aromas of lush orange blossom, sweet jasmine, and fresh gardenia. The fragrance rounds out with hints of amber and musk." I quite liked this perfume and will check it out when the full sized becomes available.

"A super-rich lotion formulated with antioxidant-rich botanicals of red tea, soy, ginkgo biloba, grape seed and milk thistle, renowned for their beneficial attributes to restore and revive skin." Felt super luxurious and smelled great. It quickly absorbed into my skin. Definitely will be bringing with me on my next trip (which will be Cali in July).

This is a super long-lasting lip stain because when I swatched it on my hand and wiped it off there was still a hint of the shade that stayed there all day lol. Valentine is a great summer pink.

Full makeup look with the mascara & lip stain from this month's box

"This volumizing Mascara has a unique formula...of natural waxes and carefully chosen powders that give lashes an instant boost. The plush brush works with the powders in the formula to help thicken lashes without clumping, giving you gorgeous volume that lasts." I was a little confused because the bottle I received was black with silver glitter but the website & Birchbox show a white bottle. Wouldn't call this mascara "volumizing." It did a good job separating and lengthening my lashes but I wouldn't wear it solely for a glam look. I'd layer it with another mascara.

These wipes were created by a mom who wanted safe antibacterial wipes for her kids. Birchbox recommends them for after hitting the beach or wearing your flip flops all day. I'll add them to my beach bag. Love the peppermint smell!

What did you get in your Birchbox this month?


  1. I like that lotion brand, and I think the mascara and lip stain look really nice on you. I got a box from SocialBliss the other day and it was cute, but not the best.

  2. @Oh to Be a Muse oh yeah I've gotten boxes from them. I got the same handbag company in both so I cancelled.

    I'm new to the brand. The lotion is super luxurious. Why thank you :) Wasn't sure why the bottle looked different though.


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
