I got my June Birchbox today!
For those of you who don't know its a monthly subscription where
you fill out a profile and each month you get a box with 5 or 6 specially chosen
This is my third month and by far this is the best box Ive gotten.
My first was great! The second was terrible...I didn't use one thing out of it.
But this box? AWESOME. I plan on trying everything in it. and thats what I wanted from this subscription. New beauty products to try and love.
This month the theme was "Jetset"
and this is what was in it:
Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Purple - FULL SIZE!
Melvita Floral Water- Sample
theBalm cosmetic Staniac in Beauty Queen
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream - Sample
LifeStyle Extra - Cynthia Rowley Designer inspired BandAids - FULL SIZE!
BirchBox Man Extra - John Varvotos Star USA Cologne Sample
First I tried the Yu-be creme. It said it's for dry skin and chapped lips. I used it on my hands, knees and feet.
Those are the parts of my body that tend to be the dryest. The smell hint me has soon as I put it on.. It stinks. It stinks bad, and it was greasy when I first applied it. But as soon as I smoothed it in my hands were soft, and so were my knees and feet. I wouldn't buy it though personally because of the smell. But it does what its supposed to.
Next is the Melvita Floral Water. It's rose smelling water that's used as a light toner or a refreshing pick me up spray. I used it in the morning on my face. Now, I don't know much about toners, but as a pick me up spray it worked. I was tired and after spraying it, I more awake and refreshed, and it smells lovely! I'd buy it. I plan on using the sample until I run out!
Then I took a bath, got ready and decided to try the two makeup items.
thebalm Staniac is a cheek and lip tint, the beauty queen color is a cherry color and I was scared it would be too bright for my pale skin. I put it on my lips first, one swipe and bam! my lips were so beautiful. They looked natural. Just a shade or two darker than my natural color, which I love! Then I put a dab on each of my cheeks. Again it made my cheeks look so beautiful yet natural, they look dewey pink!
I then tried the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Purple. It's like a marker, it goes on so easy and smooth. If you suck at putting on eyeliner like me, this is the eyeliner for you. It makes it impossible to do it wrong. Im not sure if the purple color is right for me however. I'd buy it, just in a different color!
Im not going to try the designer bandaids since I don't have any cuts to cover up, although I will use them when I do! They are so cute.
And the John Varvotos Star USA is for my husband, Ill give you an update on how he likes it!
