June Birchbox Review

Hello everyone! Long time, no post!

I’ve really been meaning to chat all about one of my most recent deliveries, my June Birchbox for some time now, so here we go…

I have to quickly say that this is probably going to be my last Birchbox post for the foreseeable future. I’ve been getting them for only about three months, and I always say to myself “maybe it will be better next month!”, but unfortunately I’ve never really been over the moon with what I have received in the boxes, and I decided to cancel my subscription.

I tried updated my profile on the website to get more tailored boxes, but I was never thrilled with the samples they supplied. I always see boxes from bloggers in North America and in my opinion, they seem to get better items, for better value of money per month.

I’m not saying I will never get Birchbox again, I may give it another chance in the future, but at the moment I’m going to do my research and try out other subscription box services. Any recommendations? Leave them in the comments please! ❤

So I’ll move on to what I received in my box this month. First off I’d like to start by saying I really do like the designs on the boxes- they are very cute-  this month was a Summer theme called “Paradise Found” and I really loved the palm trees on my box.

As usual I received 5 samples…

Percey & Reed Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray

This is handy for travelling. From using this product it didn’t really do anything different to what any other hairspray I have used will do. The package design is lovely, however I wouldn’t go on to purchase this product in full size.

Whish CC Body Cream

This was an interesting find. I’ve heard all about CC creams for the face, but for the body?Totally different story! This cream smells like Summer in a bottle, with hints of coconut! It adds a shimmery bronze glow to your skin, blends away imperfections and makes it feel super soft. I would consider using this again!

Benefit Air Control BB Cream Eyelid Primer

I really wish this came in a bigger size! It primes and colour corrects the skin on the eyelids for smooth application of your favourite eyeshadow. It also has SPF 20 which is brilliant. 

Pure and Light Organic Essential Face Cream 

I’ll be honest, I didn’t try out this product. My skin is ridiculously sensitive that I will only ever use a moisturising cream that I know won’t cause my eczema to flare up. I donated this product to a friend as I’m sure she will benefit from it more than me!

Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigments in Cake Pop.

Now this is probably one of the only Birchbox samples that I absolutely love. I have been using this lip & cheek stain every day in my makeup routine. It is very creamy and heavily pigmented, that adds a pretty pink pop of colour. I use it mainly as a blusher, and I place a tiny dab onto each cheek and blend it out with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. A perk of this product is that it smells like just like sweets!

  1. I’ve been subscribed to Birchbox for a few months now and I love receiving my boxes every month. But even though I’ve updated my profile, I still find I receive certain samples that aren’t really of use to me. I’d love to try a new box out but all the others I’ve seen seem to be more expensive… x

  2. That’s exactly how I felt! I ended up cancelling my subscription after that last box. I did a wee bit of research on other boxes and Glossy Box looked nice for beauty bits. Always liked the look of Pink Parcel for a wee treat every month! X
