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 <3
