June 2012 Birchbox

Another month means another Birchbox! I was really excited for this month box because I knew it had something to do with traveling for Summer, and I was right. This month's theme is jet set, the products in this month's box are perfect for traveling on a road trip, plane flight, or wherever else you are going to this Summer. Take a look at the samples I got in my June box down below!

 Box overview

 List of products

COOLA Cucumber Matte Mineral Face SPF 30 Full-size, $36 
"An antioxidant-packed facial sunscreen with a fresh scent and a shine-free finish." This sounds amazing I can't wait to try it out. I love the fresh scent of cucumbers so I expect this to smell awesome!

John Varvatos Star USA Full-size, $55-70 
"In honor of Father's Day, we've included this dapper cologne, a blend of ginger, juniper berries, and vetiver. Pass it on to a lucky guy friend or family member." I haven't opened this yet because I plan to give this to my dad as a Father's Day treat hopefully he will like it.

 Modcloth Headband Full-size, $14
"Pair this retro-inspired accessory with a big pair of sunnies and a two-seater, Shop all Modcloth road trip beauty essentials at birchbox.com'modcloth." This was my favorite item in my box! I have always wanted one of these old school "bunny" headbands and now I have one thanks to birchbox. I'm planning on buying some these because not only do they keep my hair off my face but they also make me look adorable!


Beautyblender Blendercleanser Full-size, $17.95 
"Keep your makeup sponges and brushes in tip-top condition with this soy-based formula." I have heard of the beauty blender sponge before so this must be the cleaner that you are suppose to use if you have one of the sponges but you can also use it on your regular brushes, which is what I plan to do. I don't have any fancy brush cleansers (I normally just use olive oil mixed in with some dish washing soap) so I will try this out and pray that I will get to sample the beauty blender sponge in one of my future boxes.

Jouer Luminzing Moisture Tint Full-size, $38 
"This award-winning tinted moisturizer is our daily shortcut to dewy, glowing skin." This kind of remind me of the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizers (Mainly because of the tube). Honestly I've become a big BB cream  fan these past few months so I haven't used a regular foundation or tinted moisturizer in ages! But the good thing is that tinted moisturizers have a similar texture like BB creams so hopefully this tinted moisturizer won't be heavy or clog my pores.

theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen Full-size, $17
"We're crazy about this two-in-one lip and cheek stain, which delivers a subtle, long wearing flush." When they say "long wearing" they mean it, I swatched a bit of this stain on my hand just so I could see the color and boy did this stuff stay on! No matter how much I washed or rubbed the swatch on my hand didn't even budge! I had to wait until the very next day for the swatch on my hand to magically disappear. So when I tried this on my lips I wasn't that surprised that the color on my lips stayed on all day. The color is also beautiful and very natural looking, I haven't tried this on my cheeks yet but I bet it will also look great. I already love this product and I have only used it for a day, I do plan on purchasing the full size really soon!

Comodynes Self-Tanning Intensive Pack of 8, $14.99
"Get a buildable, natural-looking tan with these bestselling towelettes." These last goodies were another one of my favorite in this box. I have always wanted to try tanning towelettes because I have really pale skin (From lack of sun) and have a bad experience with tanning lotions and sprays, but I still want glowing tan skin. Hopefully these wipes will work for me, I will keep you posted.

Well that's it for my June box. So far this is my favorite Birchbox I have received by far! I was extremely satisfied with every product in this box and plan to use every single one of these and hopefully find some new favorites.

What did you guys get in your June Birchbox?



  1. That looks like a really good one! I literally just cancelled mine because I felt like they weren't sending me enough stuff for $10. And this post made me wish I hadn't.
