June Birchbox Unboxing 2016!

June Birchbox

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Although I’m not 100% better, I can’t stay away from blogging too long because I really miss it and miss you guys as well.  Thanks for your comments and well wishes-it’s always nice to hear! 🙂

June’s Birchbox box has arrived so let’s take a look at what’s included.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3- Minute Peel- Body

This is a gentle and acid-free exfoliator that can be used to exfoliate your feet, calves, bikini area, arms, and décolleté without irritating sensitive skin. It’s supposed to help with skin problems like keratosis, eczema, body acne and ingrown hairs.  I have yet to try this one as I didn’t like the Real Chemistry Luminous 3- Minute Peel for the face at all.  I’ll update as soon as I try this out.

 

SuperGoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50

This product is 3-in-1 mist that is part makeup setter, oil controller, and UV protector.  I’m not the biggest fan of this product for the face as I received the full size of this in a PopSugar box last year.  You can read my review for this one here.

June Birchbox Swatches

Top to Bottom: Laura Gellar Gilded Honey, Benefit Gimmie Brow in Medium and Ardency Inn Modster Eyeliner

Ardency Inn Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner in Black

A creamy, waterproof liner that glides on effortlessly and then sets to a bold finish that won’t smudge or budge.  The pigmentation on this is really intense and almost reminds me of a liquid liner.  It applies very smoothly and has great staying power.  I kind of wish I had gotten a more colorful shade but I can’t complain too much as this one is pretty good.

Laura Gellar New York Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey 

Guys, this illuminator is life.  Seriously, I was so thrilled to see that this was included in my box because I have swatched it a few times at Ulta and really loved it.  This highlighter’s formula is designed to apply like a powder but feel like a cream, making it easily to blend.  I have nothing but glowing reviews for this as it’s gorgeous, easy to apply and looks lovely.  You can check it out in action on my Instagram page.

Benefit Gimmie Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in Medium 

This month’s sample choice, a few strokes of this brow-building invention can make brows look full and defined. Volumizing microfibers and an exclusive water-resistant gel adheres to skin and hair, thickening brows to certified bold status. I was excited to try this out as it seems like an easy way to define brows and I was not disappointed.  Since it has a spoolie like application, I found it easy to define and tame by eyebrows in a few easy strokes. I received the shade medium which is a bit too dark for my liking so if I get the lighter shade, this will be perfect.

Overall, I liked this box, especially the Laura Gellar highlighter.  I may cancel my Birchbox subscription after July because I’m accumulating a lot of samples and I kind of want to take a break from it.  I’ll keep you guys updated though.

What did you think of this month’s Birchbox?  Are any of you planning on cancelling or taking a break from it?
