My June Birchbox Review

snapseed

Hello everyone! My June Birchbox came really early this month so I thought I’d share what I got with you! If you missed last month’s box, you can find it here. This will be my last Birchbox for a while as I will be flying to Colombia for a couple of months! Don’t worry, I’ll find plenty of stuff to write about while I am there.


This month, I think I chose one of the samples that came in my box. I chose the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. I have received this sample before but Oribe is such a great (and not exactly affordable brand), and the travel size will be perfect to bring with me to Colombia so I thought why not! The full-size product retails for $46 and it is part dry shampoo, part texturizer.


I also received Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer – this has sheer to medium coverage and it reminds me of NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer. They both come in little pots and the texture feels very similar. I do think the NARS one is a bit more creamer and just feels nicer against the skin. The difference in price is of $10 so I wouldn’t exactly call it a dupe, but definitely a more affordable version. In one of my last boxes, I got something like a bronze BB cream and I as a bit hesitant about it, but I tried it a few days ago and I was obsessed!

In one of my last boxes, I got something like a bronze BB cream and I as a bit hesitant about it, but I tried it a few days ago and I was obsessed! It definitely gave me a healthy look and I didn’t feel like I had to do anything extra. In this box, I received what I am guessing is something similar, COOLA Mineral Face SPF 30 Rosilliance – Golden. BB Creams are kind of a tinted moisturizer and a lot of them, especially these bronze version have SPF which I think it’s great. That way you don’t have to use many products over the summer and you just carry one of these.

One of the products I was excited about but my excitement was shattered when I opened the box, was the Manna Kadar Cosmetics Eye Candy Priming Shadow Stick in Honey. The shade is so pretty, but unfortunately, the stick arrived completely out of the packaging and somewhat squished against the lid. I was very disappointed. I contacted Birchbox and they were only able to offer me Birchbox points… which are kind of useless. I’ll still try to use it!

Honestly, I am glad I am taking a bit of a break from Birchbox as I have been quite disappointed with the products lately. I find them to be too repetitive and I really wish I got more makeup products (I know in this case the hair sample was selected by me, but there’s usually a hair sample included). What are your thoughts on Birchbox? I have seen Birchbox in other countries like the UK and even the packaging looks so much better. You can check Flair Chick’s May Birchbox post to see how gorgeous it is!

I had always wanted to start a YouTube channel ever since I saw @zoella doing it. YouTube always seemed scary and for some reason IGTV feels a lot more approachable. What do you think?

  • Anyone else use more than one bronzer to pretend you’ve spent the last week at the beach? I love mixing different shades of bronzer to achieve an even more bronzed and glowy look. I love @thebalm Take Home the Bronze in Oskar (aka Oliver)!

Alguien más usa más de dos polvos bronceadores para pretender que acaban de pasar una semana en la playa? Me encanta el de @thebalm que lo consiguen en @cromanticstore!

  • Who else is excited for the new @zoellabeauty #SplashBotanics collection? The Shower Shake is one of my favorite body washes. It is super moisturizing and smells amazing. In the back, my at-home makeup bag also from @zoellabeauty. Love love everything I’ve tried so far! Available at @ultabeauty in the U.S.

Quien más está emocionado por la nueva colección de @zoella? A mi me encanta el jabón para la ducha! Es súper hidratante. Mi cosmetiquera (en el fondo) también es de esa marca. Súper buen tamaño.

  • Today’s #motd! Loving these products at the moment 😍If you work from home/don’t work/have summer vacations, do you ever get confused about what day of the week it is? Is it the weekend? Is it Tuesday? 🤷🏻‍♀️
P.S. sorry for the repost - last photo looked green. Had to fix that.
