June 2015 Birchbox Unboxing and Review

I’m baaaackkkk. Yes I know I’ve been MIA for awhile with my reviews but I have had a lot of life stuff going on. Boo life stuff! I’m back with my unboxing's though and I’m also happy to announce that my YouTube channel will be up and running in July! Whew that channel has been a crazy effort! For June we’re going to start with Birchbox. Birchbox is a monthly subscription service that provides you with 5 beauty or lifestyle samples. Birchbox is $10.00 per month and is worth it just to expose yourself to new products. 

Now onto all the things! 

First we have the amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – full-size price $21 dollars. I love dry shampoos. Living in Florida if I don’t use a dry shampoo my hair would look nuts in a few hours. I’m a huge fan of the John Freida dry shampoo as well as the Kloraine Oat and Thistle dry shampoo. I have to say that I’m not a fan of how the amika dry shampoo smells. It works well though so if you’re not sensitive to smells like I am then give the amika dry shampoo a try. 

Supergoop! Everyday SPF 50 with Cellular Response Technology – full-sized $19 - $48. The Supergoop! Sunscreen is the same consistency of other sunscreens but the smell is different. It has a light scent of black licorice along with the normal sunscreen smell. Not much to say other then it works well as a sunscreen. 

Look at the hair tie by L. Erickson. This is the Narrow Grab and Go Ponytail Holder – full-sized $12. I like this. I do put my hair back into a ponytail a lot in the summer. My hair obscenely long right now (getting it cut soon) so I really am happy to get the hair tie in my Birchbox Would I spend the money on it myself - Probably not. 

I love the color of the Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner – full-sized $11. I usually wear a navy blue eyeliner for a pop of color. The product goes on smoothly and is opaque. I only wore the eyeliner for a few hours before I took my makeup off to work out, so I can’t speak to wear, but it did last well in the Florida humidity for those few hours. 

If I didn’t have the information card I would have thrown out the Dr. Jart+ BB Night Beauty Blam – full-sized $38. The product is clear with small white beads. I thought the product had separated and had gone bad. However, the info card warned that the product is a clear gel with beads so score. Birchbox provided a small sample so I can’t say it did anything for my skin. What I can say is the product did not irritate my sensitive skin, has no scent, and my face felt hydrated in the morning. 

Last we have the Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel – full-sized $48. The product is clear and has a gel like constancy. I have not tried the peel because I’m worried about irritating my face and when I put a little on my hand the product had the subtle scent of burnt wood. The product is well packaged and the sample is large enough to get a good idea of how it works. 

Well, that’s my unboxing of the June Birchbox. I’m curious to know what others got this month!
