June 2014 Birchbox Review



 Another month another Birchbox.  For those of you who don’t know Birchbox is a company that offer subscription packs you can purchase and in return you get sent some full size or sample size products, to find out more click HERE. Don’t forget Birchbox have their very own shop on their website, where you can purchase items featured in their boxes! This month’s Birchbox is called ‘Global Strikers’ inspired by the World Cup and the Brazil colours where its being held!

Here is what I received in my box…




I was so excited to receive this item in this months box. I have heard so much about the beauty blender from various beauty YouTuber’s and bloggers, but had yet to give in and buy it. I don’t know why but applying my foundation with a sponge never appealed to me.  I think it’s because It reminds me of when I was a teenager and used them awful white sponges. This is quite pricey for a sponge so I had high hopes after hearing amazing things and I love that it comes with a solid cleanser, to clean the sponge with. This is best applied when damp and almost bouncing it along your skin to blend in your foundation. I used this once already and I must admit I quite liked it, is it better than my Real Techniques Buffing Brush? I don’t know. I definitely like how this pats the foundation into your skin rather than feeling like your just sliding it around your face, like it can do when your trying to cover a blemish with a brush (hope you understand what I mean)! It’s a huge thumbs up from me when it comes to this item Birchbox!!



I never get that excited over skin care samples and products just because I feel like you never get enough to fully try the product out, and also because I already have my skin care routine. Having said that Caudalie is a very expensive luxurious brand and this sample is a good size, so I will definitely be trying this and seeing what I think, its always good to branch out!



Body moisturisers are always a good thing to have and I like how generous this sample size is! Korres is another well known brand and I remember receiving a shower gel in this scent via Birchbox, not long ago so its cool that I  have the body milk to match. I gave this a sniff from the bottle and it smelt like a lovely creamy lemon scent, very refreshing for summer. Its a body milk so its lighter than a body butter, something light can be quite nice in the summer. I am looking forward to smelling like zesty lemon and hopefully feeling hydrated!


This is a cute little extra from Birchbox, I now have this on my keys!



This product is £55 for a full size recipe kit,  so you can make the product yourself with instructions, which is pretty cool but very expensive. I’m looking forward to trying this because for something to cost that much I feel like it has some high standards to reach! I’m not a huge fan of hair masks because I have very soft silky hair, and find its hard to do anything with and lacks volume when its to shiny.  I am looking forward to seeing what effects this has on my hair.  I think I will apply this after I’ve dyed my hair as a nice conditioning treatment.



I was quite happy to receive this product as I don’t actually own any O.P.I nail polishes and I’ve heard many good things about them! This is a mini size and a very pretty almost barbie pink, which wouldn’t be my first choice of colour but its a very summer appropriate and a very wearable shade. This months boxes included shades from either of the Brazil Beach Sandies Collection or the Copacababies Liquid Sand Collection.
