Birchbox June 2013 Box Review

Birchbox  switched up their logo and website this month and I'm not sure what they did but the boxes shipped really fast.  Mine was here when I got back from Charlotte this weekend. I got box 9 this month. Birchbox  sends out lots of boxes each month and this month I think I read that there were 40 different versions.

This months theme is Wanderlust and says its a mashup of items to get you ready for travel.  I can see how my box fits the theme but at first glance I wasn't wowed by it. However the more I look at it the more I don't really mind it. It just wasn't overly exciting to me but I do think I will use most of the items.
  • Mirenesse - Glossy Kiss Lipstick in Cheeky Kiss - This is the item that had me most excited in the box. Its a Lipstick crayon and I've never used one so I can't wait to try it out. ( well once I find it.  Grr I  have the package and must have dropped the crayon when stopping to help N.  Its got to be here somewhere. :() Hmm I just read the packaging and it also says it can be used as a cheek stain. I'll admit I haven't really gotten into the stains yet but I'm almost out of my normal blush so I'm going to venture into that territory.
  • Color Club - Wanderlust Collection Polish in Reign in Spain - the color looks wild in the bottle but I'm so into polishes right now and I like Color club so I can't wait to give this one a try. I think it will be great for summer.
  • Klorane - Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk - This is the biggest item in the box but its also the one I could care less for. I'm not into the dry shampoos at all. Maybe I should be I don't know but so far I haven't jumped on the bandwagon so this does nothing for me.
  • Oscar de la Renta - Something Blue perfume - I took a sniff of this one and it actually is pretty nice. I'll give it a try since you really need to sample perfumes on to get how it smells.  I don't wear a ton of perfume. I used to and I liked it so I need to work it into my morning routine.
  • Twistband Birchbox exclusive Nautical Hair Tie - who can't use another hairband? Not an exciting extra but it will get put to use.
  • You can kindof see in the back of the photo that we also got some postcards.  I love making cards and sending and receiving mail and these are really cute.
So as you can see my  box isn't over exciting and I didn't go WOW when I opened it but I do think overall its a decent box. Did you get a Birchbox this month? What did you get in yours? You don't get Birchbox  yet? Its $10 a month and you get a box of samples to try out.  You can then review the items online to get points to use towards purchasing full size items. :)

  1. Still haven't got mine in yet. I've heard some boxes were really great and others mediocre.

  2. I like the lip crayon. I love lip crayons. They normally last a while and you can always cover with gloss if you want extra glossy! I have a cool project with polishes- I am going to post on my blog later- so keep it in mind for all those colors that you just aren't crazy about!
    Dry shampoo.....I'm not into that either. But I have never tried it.
    Overall- not bad.
