Wednesday Reveal – June Birchbox

Birchbox is quickly becoming my least favourite subscription box, I feel that they send out a lot of the same brands and similar products. This will be my 7th box and the variety is so lacking in comparison to other subscriptions that I really enjoy. This could be the last box that I do from them, or July will be since I already paid for it. We will see if they redeem themselves in July.


The theme for the month was Face the Day and here is what came in my box:


amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – I think this is at least the 4th product that I have received from this brand and I don’t love this brand. I am not generally picky about my hair care but this brand tends to tangle and dry it out. This shampoo claims to strengthen, repair and enhance your hair with each use. In all honesty, I don’t get dry shampoo and it doesn’t get me, I will gift this away. I have enough amika products to make a pamper gift basket 😛


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer – I love this primer and don’t mind having a mini for multi-priming. I read a review about Ipsy and they got 2 stars for sending too many primers – is there even such a thing?


Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel – I love gel moisturizers and will definitely give this a go. It contains green tea, cucumber and vitamins C and E – sounds lovely.


COOLA Rosilliance Organic BB Cream – This product sounds very interesting, it is a sunscreen hybrid that is supposed to warm your complexion up rather than give it that white sunscreen cast. This brand tends to really irritate my skin though and this will be a gift away.


Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash – Ah, Stabby Lash, so we meet again. I don’t even know if I like this mascara or not because I just stab myself and give up! Another gift away, I have a gal pal who loves this.


That’s it! Not terrible, only 2 of the 5 will I actually try so not the best. We will see what July brings, thanks for stopping by ❤

    1. It just isn’t very much fun and the thought seems to be totally lacking. They just toss everything in the box, it is just disappointing. Not fun anymore 😦

      1. I can understand that! I had some similar issues with Glossybox in my country, all we got felt like it was just free samples and it wasn’t worth it at all.

  1. I appreciate the honesty! I love ipsy just because for $10 I feel like it is worth it even if I don’t LOVE all the items. That being said, my past 3 bags I loved the large majority of items!

    1. I like Ipsy as well – I think that the samples are more curated to my profile and the bag is a bonus that you don’t get from Birchbox! Definitely enjoy those bags over the box 🙂

      1. Yes I agree IPSY does a good job giving you what you request. I have actually changed up my preferences a few times (believe it or not I was actually getting TOO MANY full-sized brushes!) and that keeps things fresh.

      2. Nice – it is good to hear that they are responsive to changes! I don’t think that I have changed anything yet but I might 🙂
