Birchbox: June + July 2014

We’re all probably a bit overdue for a peek into my latest Birchboxes.  Actually, I know we’re overdue.

Confession time: I am something of a product-hoarder.  Right now, my sample bag runneth over.  All of the miniature sunscreens have found their way into my toiletry bag for cabin usage, but everything else is still hanging about my vanity.  I need to schedule some moisturizing/facial time in a serious way.

In the box: Cynthia Rowley Beauty Silver Eyeliner, Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Wash, LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Menatour, nyakio Kenyan Coffee Face Polish Body Scrub and Hydrating Face Oil, Perlier Body Cream – Shea Almond

If we’re going to keep the honesty-streak alive, then I feel like I should tell you that I haven’t used anything in this box yet.  As gorgeous as that tube of Perlier Body Cream looks, I think that it’s probably going to be saved until winter, because dry skin is not really a problem in Minnesota in the summer.  Come January, I will be begging for just the tiniest bit of humidity.

I am really looking forward to the nyakio facial kit, but I just haven’t made the time to do it yet!  The packaging is actually fairly impressive.  Each of the steps have been split out so that amateurs (AKA me) know how we’re meant to perform this ritual.

In the box: Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain in Sugar, Harvey Prince Singular Scentsations Imperial Gardenia, NAOBAY Body Radiance Lotion, Paula’s Choice RESIST c15 Super Booster, St. Tropez Tan Gradual Tan Plus Anti-Ageing Multi-Action Face, Women’s Health Subscription (10 issues)

This box arrived last week and it was PACKED.

I am a big fan of Harvey Prince scents, so I was really glad to see the Imperial Gardenia in this box.  Since Women’s Health sponsored this month’s box, I also received a 10 issue subscription which makes it probably the best freebie that Birchbox has thrown in to date.

Some of the lotions look thrilling (NAOBAY), other serums look terrifying (Paula’s Choice RESIST), and still some threaten to turn my face an unnatural shade of tan (St. Tropez).  We’ll see where that goes.

  1. I love how my Tex Mex tots with extra lettuce (mostly to get an extra green serving in a day) turned into a salad with tots 🙂 It is darn tasty though!

  2. Got to put in a plug for Paula’s Choice – I use the lotion, face wash, light serum, bronzer, and face sunscreen now and love them all.
