Recent Birchboxes, Still Worth They Hype? 2


I can never tell if you guys like reading Birchbox posts or not so I keep trying to switch up how I format them. Let me know what you guys think this time around! I’m reviewing June and July’s box posts all in one and i’m really just going to give a brief overview on what I liked and what I didn’t and how I feel about the service overall.

I’ve been getting Birchbox since December and I feel that’s a long enough time to form an opinion I can stand by. I love Birchbox. I know some people are getting bored with it but I’m still just as thrilled as ever when I get my box every month. I don’t often buy their products in full size, but that’s only because I have SO MANY samples to use up. I truly think the subscription service is worth it and for only $10 a month, you really can’t go wrong. Sure, some of the products aren’t my favorite, but I love trying out new things. Testing out new skincare, and makeup, and hair care is so fun for me that it makes these types of services totally worth it.

So, Do I think you should subscribe to Birchbox? Yes, if you love how cute sample sizes are. Yes, if you are looking for new skin/hair/makeup products to try. No, if you hate surprises.

If you’re interested in subscribing use my referral link here!

Anyways, that’s enough ramble for one post. Onto June!

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo: Best dry shampoo i’ve ever used. And trust me, I have oily hair, I’ve tried a ton of dry shampoos. The smell is incredible and it soaks up oil in seconds. Never has my second hair looked so much like freshly showered hair.

Dr. Jart+ BB Night Beauty Balm: I am so confused at the purpose of this product. Why would anyone want a beauty balm for night time? In’t a regular BB cream enough? Plus, you can sleep in it. It has a tint to it, no thanks. (The white beads that turn into your skin color are pretty cool though)

Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner: Nope. I loved the texture and consistency of this but I don’t do blue liner. Sorry.

Supergoop! Everyday SPF50 w/Cellular Response Technology: You can’t tell in the picture but this is empty. I used it every day I was on vacation and I love it. It didn’t leave my skin with a gross residue like most sunscreens do, and it didn’t smell like sunscreen either. I really loved how I couldn’t tell that I had sunscreen on.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel: Great, but I’ve received this before in a Birchbox.

L. Erikson Narrow Grab & Go Ponytail Holder: Why? Just why.

Onto July!

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray: This stuff is incredible. I’ve been wanting to try it ever since one of my favorite YouTubers started raving about it. I have super fine hair so anything that will add texture to my hair is great. This does the job, but it also keeps my hair nice and touchable, not crunchy. I’ve actually been able to have some messy buns that don’t look like teeny tiny buns. So happy about this.

Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF20: Body bronzer that also has spf. Not awful, not great. Just meh. I’ve used the Sally Hanson versions of this and liked them way more. Plus, the drugstore version is much cheaper.

Stila Look At Me Liquid Lipstick- Beso: This is the nicest matte lip product I’ve ever used. It doesn’t dry out my skin at all. Most matte products make your lips gross but with this you still feel hydrated. Plus, the lasting power on this lipstick is phenomenal. I ate lunch with no problems. I only had to touch up the inner corners of my mouth throughout the day. That’s it! Did I mention it smells like vanilla frosting?

Supergoop! Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum SPF30: I really loved the Supergoop! product last month, and the one from April so I knew I was going to love this too. It feels amazing on my skin and has been working wonderfully as a sunscreen for me since I got this box a few weeks ago. I’ve already done some research to see which Supergoop! product I want to try next.

dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant: Loved the product hated the smell. I’m not a big citrus person so luckily the product was amazing. This was one of the best manual exfoliants i’ve tried. It’s very fine in texture but it still does an amazing job. Definitely won’t be repurchasing though.

 

Have you tried any of these products? Do you subscribe to Birchbox? Why or why not?

Thanks!
