Birchbox - June 2013

Finally! My first Birchbox is here and I'm super excited!!! This month's theme is Wanderlust. I can't wait to discover my next everything.  Here's a peek:

For those of you who don't know what Birchbox is, it's basically a monthly beauty/lifestyle sample subscription that costs $10 month-to-month or $110 annually (basically one free month).

This is what's included in my box this month:

First off, I'm in love.

I was very lucky to receive the LAQA & Co Lil' Lip in Pinkman which is a vivid fuchsia color and a Birchbox exclusive. It's part of a duo but sadly you only get to try one. It's a smooth shea butter and color complex which leaves your lips soft and glossy! YES!

Secondly I received the Color Club in London Calling which is part of the Wanderlust Collection, also a Birchbox exclusive inspired by four of their new global offices. It's a neon pastel shade of minty green which is really cute.

I know who's getting a manicure later today. :)

Wait, there's more!

I've gotta say that the Suki exfoliating foaming cleanser makes me wanna eat it! It's a sugar scrub and two-in-one cleanser with lemongrass extract that smells soooooooooo delicious. It's a very small container which is probably good for about a few uses depending on how much you put on but it is a SAMPLE so I'm happy with it. And by the way, its vegan!

Also Birchbox decided to throw in some postcards which are inspired by their new global offices as a treat; New York, France, London and Barcelona. Cute!

Lastly I received a Davines collection which included the Love Smoothing shampoo + conditioner, and the Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion. The conditioner and oil potion were beauty extras which was nice but I haven't tried yet. The potion's purpose is to tame frizz and strengthen hair. I also haven't used the shampoo yet but I can tell you that it has a very rich, soft (not too strong) scent that's lovely and I got a decent sample size.  

To sum this all up, I am VERY pleased with my first box and look forward to more in the future! 

Also another cool thing about Birchbox is that I can review the samples I got on their website and get points and I receive 10 points per review (100 points = $10) to use in their shop. (You also can get points when you have an annual subscription but not a month-to-month). 

This was definitely worth $10. :)

Here's everything that was included in my box to shop for as full size items in the Birchbox shop:
