Birchbox June 2015 (Adventure Is A State Of Mind)

9:00 AM







Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel - Full Size $48
Sample size value is approximately $4.00

This is an acid-free peel that exfoliates for softer, smoother, and brighter skin. You simply apply to a clean face and massage to remove dull, dry skin and rinse away. The sample size of this was quite small so it was difficult to give a full review but from what I tested this product works decently well. The scent is light and pleasant, and it exfoliated well without irritating my skin. I would consider purchasing the full size version of this product.


Davines MINU Shampoo - Full Size $25
Davines MINU Conditioner - Full Size $29
Davines MINU hair serum - Full Size $23.50
Sample size value is approximately $7 for all 3 samples
This is a combo sample pack, I received the shampoo in a larger bottle and 2 smaller sample pouches, one of which is the matching conditioner and the other a serum. The shampoo has a citrus smell that is a little odd to me, it smells like somewhat of a cleaning product citrus than a more fruity citrus. It works decently well but the scent is not for me. The conditioner had a similar scent and did a decent job moisturizing my hair, these both are color protecting as well. The serum contains caper blossom extract which smooths tangles and also protects color treated hair, again this product has a similar smell to the shampoo and conditioner. I would not purchase the full size of these products in this scent, I would consider the brand in another scent.



This perfume is inspired by tea time in Italy, it has a citrus scent mixed in with notes of musky rose and sugar. This is a unique scent to me and I do really enjoy it. While it has a clean and simple scent, the undertones really set it apart from most sweet/musky perfumes. I would consider buying the full size of this product.


COOLA SPF 50 Sport Sunscreen in Mango - Full Size $32
Sample size value is approximately $3.20

This is a sport sunscreen with an SPF 50, it is sweat-proof and water-resistant. It's also made with organic botanicals. This scent is decent, the initial application is not very fruity for being a mango scent but once it sets in the scent becomes a little more fruity and has a more tropical undertone. It seems to hold up when being used while being active and overall it's a nice scent compared to many other sunscreens. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Mulberry - Full Size $11
Sample size value is approximately $4.50

This is a waterproof eyeliner in the color mulberry, it's a deep purple which shows up more black unless you pay close attention to the detail of it. It is fairly blend-able and goes on smoothly, it seems to last for a decent amount of time without smudging. It's not too unique compared to my many other eyeliners but I do enjoy the formula. I would consider purchasing this product in the future. 




BONUS SAMPLE:

L. Erickson Ponytail Holder - Full Size $18
Sample size value is approximately $1.20

This is a simple pony tail holder that I got as a bonus sample this month. I really like how thick the band is and it sits comfortably in my hair without causing any pulling or tangles. The overall design is nice as well. I would consider purchasing this product in the future.



Overall, I find this month's box to be a huge improvement over last month's. Almost all of these samples are ones I would consider purchasing and I enjoyed the variety as well. I really love the design of this month's box too! If you haven't yet, be sure to get your own subscription to Birchbox for only $10 a month!


The value of my June 2015 Birchbox is $20.70 without the bonus item and $21.90 with the bonus item.
I pay $10 a month for my subscription, so I received an extra value of about $10.70 or $11.90,
