June 2016 Birchbox

June 2016 Birchbox

It’s that time of the month again… yep, you read that right… it’s that time of the month!  It’s Birchbox time! 😉

After finally getting it right last month, I’m pretty happy again this month.  Except, they forgot the cute tissue paper again!  Am I the only one who keeps getting boxes with NO tissue paper?  What’s up with that, Birchbox?  ‘Splain…

My June Birchbox contained the following:

Balance Me Congested Skin Serum– This is supposed to help calm the skin and fight blemishes as well as refine pores.  Having oily skin, I love serums in general because they’re not as heavy as creams, so this seems promising.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in 3 Medium– I already have the Benefit Gimme Brow in the older packaging, and it’s a pretty amazing product.  Looking forward to trying this shade to see if it’s any different!

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser– I’ve generally been very happy with every Kiehl’s product I’ve tried.  Again, I have oily skin, so this looks like it will be pretty amazing!

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray– I love texturizing products, and often use dry shampoos, too.  This is supposed to be a combination, so this will save me a step.  That is, if Jerry doesn’t use it all before I get a chance to try it…lmao!

The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick in Raisin’ the Roof– I’m a sucker for a great lip product, especially when it claims to be moisturizing, and comes in an awesome shade like this!  However, I am a bit confused as to why this is called “PBJ Smoothie Stick” when it’s scented like an “almond butter and goji berry” smoothie…  I mean, shouldn’t it smell like peanut butter and jelly…???  Nevertheless, this is a full sized product, and I’m excited to try it!

Overall, despite the lack of tissue paper, I’m very happy with this month’s Birchbox!  Just the lip crayon alone has a $14.95 value, and the Oribe spray is worth probably $10-$15.  I’m hoping Birchbox will keep up with the oily skin stuff, too!

If you’d like to subscribe to Birchbox, it’s just $10 a month, shipping is always free, and you can cancel any time.  Despite the low price, you’ll always get a lot more than $10 worth of products.  Plus, if you write short little reviews, you get even more free stuff!  Click here to check it out and get more info or to subscribe!
