June Birchbox 2012

Hello, lovelies. Today is another Birchbox day! I love Birchbox days! My June box has a "Jet Set" traveling theme. I am also very happy to finally receive a BB that does NOT have a perfume sample in it. I was getting a little bit sick of them tbh. Now, onto the goodies:

June 2012 Birchbox

LA Fresh Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover Wipes
Kelly Van Gogh Hair Colour Protecting & Illuminating Tonic
Tili Bag
Clark's Botanicals Lip Tint & theBalm cosmetics lip and cheek stain

I just love those acetone-free wipes. They will be great to throw into my purse when I'm on the go. I also really love the Clark's Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Tint. It has great, natural ingredients in it like shea butter, aloe, jojoba & coconut oils. It also smells great and has a neutral peachy color. The Stainiac in Beauty Queen by theBalm Cosmetics is a more reddish stain. I didn't like that it made my lips feel numb when I applied it and it also left them sticky for a bit. I do like the coloring it gives, but it had a bit of a splotchy look. I would probably choose to swipe some chapstick over it if I wore it out. The hair mist is a leave-in spray to make your hair shiny while also protecting from heat damage. The plastic bag is a cute nod towards the Jet Set theme as it can be used to store your cosmetics and travel essentials to make your trek through airport security fashionable.

I really liked this box even though it had 2 lip products in it. This works for me because even when I'm not wearing makeup, I'm grabbing something to apply to my lips. Right now my go-to is my lemon eos lip balm.

As always, if you would like to sign up for Birchbox here is a link for you to do so. There is a wait to sign up as BB is first-come, first-serve, but it will be worth the wait to get such great samples delivered to your door for only $10 a month.

Thanks for popping in!

    1. I have a nice little assortment of mini perfumes now. Every single BB I have gotten since October has had a perfume sample. To like it more than polish though, D: *gasp* . :-) The boxes are SO fun. It's a nice little treat for myself every month.

    1. I would have loved the men's cologne! My husband used to be an avid cologne collector and it would have made for a nice treat for him.
