June Birchbox Unboxing + Weekend Wrap Up!

BB

Happy Tuesday everyone!  After a few days away from here, I’m back.  Hope everyone had a good weekend. A HUGE thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday! 🙂

Last week my June Birchbox The Tig Guest Editor box arrived and here’s what arrived inside.

Real Chemistry 3-Minute Peel

Harvey Prince Hello Body Creme

Oribe Cote d’Azure Fragrance

Davines Su Hair and Body Wash 

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow (in place of Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner)

First Impressions: I think this box is good but I’m not over the moon about it.

I love Davines and think they have amazing hair products, however certain ones cause a reaction so I am curious to see how this one works for me.

I’m always looking for lotions so the Harvey Prince body cream is also a good addition and I love the summery citrusy scent.

As you know, I l-o-v-e skincare but I’m not impressed with Real Chemistry 3 minute peel.  I’ll need to use this a few more times to give it a fair trial, but there is no special appeal for me. I haven’t used the Marcelle BB cream yet since I have a few similar products already that I am trying out but I’ll clue you in once I have a chance to use.

Last but not least is the Oribe fragrance.  For some reason, I thought this was a sample of the hair refresher and was one of the reasons I choose this box.  Sadly, it’s not and the scent isn’t the same as the one used in the hair products, which I love by the way.  The scent itself isn’t bad, just smells more like cologne.  I’ll need to test this further too.

One of the highlights of last week was my birthday cake made by my sister.  How cute and creative is this?  Love!

All in all I had a great birthday week with dinners, some shopping, attending a seminar at Dermalogica’s HQ, Disneyland and hanging out.  Now, back to my normal routine.

Are you a Birchbox subscriber?  What did you receive and what are your thoughts on this month’s box?

  1. Aww you look so happy! 🙂 I’m still waiting on my Birchbox, I think I’m getting the same one as you. I have to say I’ve been enjoying all the Harvey Prince products I’ve been trying through Brichbox.

  2. We have the same box! I still haven’t tried anything out from it yet but I think I will really like the Davine’s and Harvey Prince. It looks like you had a nice birthday! I hope you’re having a great week! 🙂 xo

      • I think I will love them too! 🙂 I can’t wait to try them out. I’m glad to hear that you had a great birthday! You so deserve it! ❤ My week has been going all right. I've had better weeks but I'm just trying to get through the next few months till I move, so I'm hanging in there! lol. 🙂

      • Thanks Katie! So sorry to hear about your rough week but on days like this, I always think about the saying that it won’t last forever. We have good days but it will change and we have bad days but that will change too. Feel better. 🙂

  3. Sounds like you had a great birthday Stephanie! That cake is awesome! LOL I got the same birchbox! I’m not wow about it either and have yet to try out any but it looks like great summer items. -Josie
