Birchbox June 2015

What's in
the box?

Birchbox arrived really early this month on one of my accounts - I won a 3 month giveaway so I signed up for a second box when they did a $5 box special.   I picked the curated box on one of the accounts and the other the microwater

Birchbox is $10 a month and you get 5-7 items to review and sample.  With those items, you can earn points to spend in the Birchbox store.  100 points = $10  

This month's theme is Adventure! 

This box was the curated one by Meghan Markle, founder of the Tig lifestyle blog.

Real Chemistry Lumious 3-minute Peel - ($3) I have tried this before in my box and was not that happy with it - it made some interesting red lines appear on my chin.  

Ms Markle says:
"This acid-free peel gently exfoliates for instantly softer, smoother, brighter skin."

Oribe Cote d'Azure fragrance -  ($2)   I am not a huge fan of perfume samples in my boxes - especially this size - but this one does grow on you.  It is soft enough I can wear it.

Ms Markle:
"The brand’s signature scent (from my friend, and favorite hair guru, Oribe Canales!!) is reminiscent of the fragrant breezes of the French Riviera. '

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow - ($4)  I am not too sure about this due to the golden glow part - I am very pale so not sure this will fit with my skin tone. 

From Ms Markle:
"This multitasker, rich in antioxidants, covers imperfections, evens tone, and calms skin."

 Davines Hair & Body Wash -  ($6.75 )   It is nice that this is an all over wash - and I have been wanting to try it.   I was very happy to see it in the curated box. 

From Ms Markle:
"This rich gel cleanses head to toe, hydrating skin and preventing sun damage to strands."

Harvey Prince Hello Body Cream -  ($ 1)  This is another one I have been wanting to try to see what the fuss is all about. 

Ms Markle says:
"Infused with summery citrus and floral notes, this hydrator leaves skin satiny and lightly scented."

There were several things in this box I have wanted to try or already liked so it was a winner box for me.   The value on this one was about $16.  There was a problem with our eyeliners that was supposed to be sent in every box so that will be added to next months.  There is also a giveaway and it came with a code to put in at but mine was a save 10% off your purchase of $50.  I was really hoping for a bag or the grand prize of course.
