Birchbox June 2014

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost $10/month

My Birchbox arrived for June. I always love to dig in and try the new products! I peeked in my account at what I would be getting this month, so I wasn't surprised when it arrived. I was excited to try a couple of items in my box this month.

The theme for June is Away We Go. It's the season for road tripping, destination hopping, and staycation-ing, so
Birchbox is bringing travel ready samples, on the go inspiration, and much more this month.

Here is the first look. I love how Birchbox changes the color of the tissue paper each month. It gives the box a different feel each month!

As usual Birchbox includes an information card detailing all the samples you receive.

Here is what was in my box this month.

The first item I received was Benefit They're Real! Mascara. I've tried this mascara before and I'm not in love with it. It's quite wet and does a nice job of making lashes look dark and long, but I prefer a dryer formula. I continue to use Maybelline Great Lash mascara and have been for years and years. I think it would take a miracle mascara to get me to switch from it.

The next sample I received was Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo. I was excited to try this shampoo and excited that I also received the conditioner and all in one milk samples too. The shampoo smells very clean, similar to children's bubbles. I loved the scent! It made my hair very soft.  

I also received Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner. The conditioner smells similar to the shampoo, very clean, like children's bubbles. My hair was very soft and manageable after one use. Also included was 
Davines OI / All in One Milk. The all in one milk had a perfume scent unlike the shampoo and conditioner. I didn't care for the scent, which had a subtle baby powder smell to it. My hair was very soft after using this. I can't wait to see the effects after a few days of using all these products together.

My favorite sample was the Perlier Body Cream. This cream was great! It went on smooth and was very moisturizing, but not sticky or wet at all. It sank in instantly and had a faint almond scent, which was nice. I think this is going on my "must purchase" list.

I received Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum. I wasn't sold by this cream. I didn't like how it felt on my face, kind of tight and didn't sink in as well as I like them to. I could get over that if it did amazing things to my skin, but after one use I see no difference at all. I will continue to try the sample to see if any miracles happen. (Has anyone found any wrinkle creams that are amazing, after just trying the sample? I'd love to know about them if you have.) 

The final sample I received was the Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris perfume. I hate perfume samples, because I very rarely wear perfume and I hate most of their strong scents. This was quite strong for my liking.

I was very happy with my June Birchbox and may have found a new favorite body cream. I will continue to subscribe to Birchbox for a very long time, because I love being able to try all the samples to figure out what works for me before I decide to purchase.
