Birchbox June 2015 Review

Birchbox June 2015 Review

Birchbox teamed up with The Tig for this month boxes.  The Tig is a lifestyle blog by Meghan Markle.  Birchbox is $10.00/month and they send five sample beauty and skin care products, every month.  Some subscribers can now upgrade to a $30.00 box.  The $30.00 box will contain 2 full size beauty or skin care products, along with the five usual products. This is my June 2015 Birchbox review.

When you sign up, you fill out a profile, so Birchbox can customize your box to your preferences.  There is a regular monthly box and they also have guest editor boxes. Birchbox releases spoilers and a full reveal of the guest editor boxes, so you will know which box to choose.  I actually have two Birchbox subscriptions.  This is the box for my newest account.

Here is the details about the Birchbox Point System

For every 100 points you earn, you get $10.00 to spend in the shop. There are lots of ways to earn points too!

1.  Subscribe 

2.  Review Your Products: You get 10 points for every sample review you complete.  Each box contains 4-5 products, so that is around $5.00 in points you can earn monthly!  This makes the box $5.00 a month.  You can use this link to sign up.

3.  Shop!: For every dollar you spend in the Birchbox Store, you earn 1 point for each dollar spent on full-size products in the Birchbox Shop.

4.  Refer Your Friends: For every friend you refer to Birchbox, you will earn 50 points

My Birchbox arrived pretty early this month, which is always a good thing.

061

Instead of the random box this month, I chose the guest editor box.

003

First Look, on top was a card with a personalized code.  You enter the code and can enter a number of different prizes.  I got a 20% off a $50.00 or more order.

071

There was also a little note from Meghan!

062

The back of the information card featured everything in the box and the retail value.

A note about the Eyeko Eyeliner.: Birchbox sent out an email that it was held up in customs, to they included a replacement product.

063

Davines SU Hair and Body Wash $6.75  This reminds of my kids all over body wash, only it’s for adults.  This has a nice floral scent and it’s designed to prevent sun damage to your hair.

064

Harvey Prince Hello Body Cream  $1.00 I fell in love with Harvey Prince because of Birchbox.  This body cream has a wonderful floral and citrus scent that moisturizes your skin without feeling greasy.

069

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow  $4.05 I wasn’t sure if I really liked this BB cream at first, but the color really blends into your natural skin tone.  I am very pale and this still worked for me.

068

Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minutes Peel  $4.80  I received this last month, but I loved it so much, I was happy to get it again.  This exfoliates your skin for a brighter complexion.

070

Oribe Cote d’Azure Eau de Parfum  $2.00 This perfume is made to be reminiscent of the French Riviera.  This has a musky floral scent that is quite pleasant.

060

Final Thought: This box had a total value of $18.60 and it was a great box.  The only item i was unsure of was the BB cream, but I was pleased to find out I could use it.  The 3 minute peel and the Harvey Prince lotion were my favorite items in the box.  If you want to subscribe to Birchbox, you can get 100 Bonus Points when you use the code BBJETBLUE10.  Or you can get the special â€œReady, Set, Summer” box, inspired by Meghan Markle’s lifestyle site, The Tig. It’s filled with must-try brands like Oribe, Davines, and more. You can see a photo of the box below! To subscribe, just use this link with the code THETIG15.

    I really enjoy looking at your reviews on Birchbox!! I’ve gone with the guest editor box every month this year. But, passed this month on Megan Merkle’s box. For some reason just couldn’t get excited for this months guest editor boxes . But, HUGE Suits fan and love her. I’m VERY glade I ended up going with a surprise box because everyone who did is receiving a 6th added bonus hair accessory Verying from headband, hair tie or hair clip. & a Marcella eye pencil Colors vary.

    What happened to the Eyeko fat liner that was supposed to come in the guest editor (and every birchbox in June)?

    I need to update my review. They sent out an email that they weren’t able to include it in the boxes because they got caught up in customs.
