Birchbox! June & July 2012

17 Jul

Since time weaseled away from me last month, I never got a chance to post my June Birchbox. Therefore, this post will be double the double the Birchity boxyness. Both were pretty fantastic assortments!

What I got in my JUNE Birchbox:

  • Modcloth Headband
  • Masqueology Brightening Mask
  • Comodynes Self-Tanning Intensive
  • theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac
  • Supergoop SPF 30+ Everyday UV Lotion for Face and Body

I was happy with every single thing that I got my June box. I already own and LOVE the Comodynes Tanning Towelettes, so I was thrilled to get more of those. The Balm Stainiac was a fun little makeup item to try and Supergoop is a brand that I know makes great stuff. I kinda wtf-ed at the headband initially because it’s printed with little deers lol, but I’ve since grown to like the print. I haven’t used the mask yet, but those things are super trendy in the beauty universe right now, so I was excited about getting it in my Birchbox.

What I got in my JULY Glamour Birchbox:

  • AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask
  • Oscar de la Renta live in love
  • Laura Geller Double Dipped Lipstick in Caribbean Kiss
  • Manna Kadar Cosmetics sheer glo shimmer lotion
  • Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds

As you can see, Birchbox teamed up with Glamour Magazine for the July edition of shipments. The stand out product for me is definitely the Laura Geller Double Dipped Lipstick. It was like getting two tubes of lipstick because one side is a brown mauve and the other is pink shade with a hint of plum (I’m in love with this color). I also LOVE the lifestyle extra this month! Birchbox threw in the cutest pair of neon blue/pink ear buds. I can always use a good set of ear buds. Although I wasn’t thrilled with getting a perfume sample, I really loved the scent and am considering buying the full size. I was also surprised to see how tiny the Manna Kadar Shimmer Lotion sample was. Kinda reminds me of the super tiny Jouer sample that I got several months ago. The AHAVA mud mask is generously sized, so that makes up for it :)

You can view all of my past Birchboxes here and if you want to sign up for yourself, just head over to Birchbox.com. It’s still one of my favorite monthly subscriptions at $10 per month.

    I was really bummed when I didn’t get the headband for June, but it’s okay. :( I’m kind of over it. As for the July box, the lipstick looks really good. I was iffy about my box, I still liked it.

      Crystal and any one else who is interested. I ctocanted the myglam ladies because I was so upset that I didnt get in on the bag (and now even more so that the jan theme is organic/natural). But they told me that on Jan 1st (mark your calendar!) the subscriptions will re-open up for Feb. So myglam and beauty army the 1st! I’ve gotten 4 perfumes, but Ive only gotten 6 boxes, so not too happy about that. Although I absolutely adore Twirl and am saving my BB points to buy it. Definitely way too many skincare products. I dont use anything other then cetaphil moisturizing cream and acnesevere (if you haven’t tried this line, I swear by it, best acne solution out there). All those lavish, expensive masks may be stocking stuffers for friends. But I may have to look at those peel pads.

      Lucky girl, I would have much rather gotten a lip gloss instead of the perfume :)
