Birchbox review June, 2016

Birchbox is a subscription box that delivers five beauty samples tailored to your skin, hair, and style every month.

The Goods

  1. Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel – Benefit Cosmetics. Regular price: $7.20

image

This water-resistant fiber gel has a precision tip for shaping and buildable formula for thick, lush lashes.

My sample was in the color 3 medium (based off of my beauty profile), which was perfect. I am obsessed with eyebrows, I like mine to be dark and defined, and this gel did not disappoint. Here is a picture of my eyebrows after using this!

2. Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask – Briogeo. Regular price: $4.50

image

Formulated with Briogeo’s unique NOVA Complex, this mask delivers an optimal blend of transformative nutrients from B-vitamins, rosehip and argan oils, algae, and biotin to replenish damaged hair to a shiny, healthy-looking, and lustrous state. This is paragon and sulfate free, cruelty-free,  gluten-free,  and made with organic ingredients that are 98% naturally-derived.

3. PoreDermabrasion – Dr. Brandt. Regular price: $7.25

image

This exfoliator minimizes pores while smoothing and evening skin’s texture with this dual-action formula. This exfoliator instantly works to deeply cleanse pores while it strengthens and tightens the look of pores by removing congestion- and clogging-causing impurities. Your skin will look and feel smoother, more even, and shine-free.

This did exfoliate my skin really well. My skin is dry and a bit peely from tanning and this made my skin smooth and cleaned out my pores. But, for $58… yeah this sample is probably the last I’ll see of this face wash. 🙂

4. Every Sun Day SPF 30 UV Sun Fluid – Dr. Jart+. Regular price: $16.80

image

This protective illuminating base and sunscreen utilizes UVB-isolating ingredients to block out damaging UVB rays—one of the causes of premature aging. Micro opal pearl refracts and reflects different angles of light to brighten skin while covering imperfections. UVB-protecting ingredients are immediately absorbed upon application for a flawless finish. The formula contains 70 percent more moisture than regular sun cream for maximum hydration

I wouldn’t use this in the sun because I actually enjoy getting tan, but I do like this for it’s moisturizing and skin brightening effects! It gives my face a nice glow and is good for if I’m in a hurry and don’t have time for makeup.

5. Dry Texturing Spray – Oribe. Regular price: $5.17

image

Oh my gosh I was so excited when I saw this! Anyone who reads my blog knows I typically wash my hair every 3 days or as little as humanly possible… Once my hair starts to go flat I like to use a dry shampoo to squeeze in one more day. I’m always on the look out for the best ones, and I’d seen this but never tried it because full size is $44.00. I’m really excited I get to try this now!

Just so happens I am on day 3 of no washes so I could test it out. It effectively soaks up any oil and to my surprise adds volume and texture to my once-flat hair! I’m already sad about when it runs out lol.

Value

The products in this months box are worth about $41.00. This is MUCH better than last month’s value ($19.50) and is a great value for a $10.00 box! If you love high quality skincare products, Birchbox is definitely the box for you! Even though I am VERY happy with this months box, I will be cancelling just because this box is more skincare focused and for beauty boxes I personally prefer makeup based subscriptions.
