Birchbox June 2014: A [birdie] Review

Wow! Birchbox! After a few “meh” boxes, I’m really wowed this month.

Here’s what my box contained…

suki® exfoliate foaming cleanser – Um, LOVING this little gem!! And so glad that I finally got to sample it – it seemed like every other Birchbox subscriber in the world had already sampled this. It’s very gritty but when mixed with water, leaves my skin feeling crazy smooth and soft. And it’s all natural, and smells amazing.
COOLA Tinted Matte SPF 30 for Face – I think I’ve received an SPF face product in my last four or so boxes. They can be hit or miss for me, as the SPF can irritate my sensitive skin and make me break out. This is a standout, though – leaves my skin with a soft, matte look and the subtle tint covers up imperfections and old blemish scarring. I’ve been mixing this with primer as a base for my foundation and it works really well.
Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara – As you may recall, we’ve raved about this mascara before. This is a great mascara to have in the arsenal, and full-sized to boot.
Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris – This perfume is absolutely lovely – I’m surprised by how much I like it, frankly, as I’m pretty picky when it comes to fragrance. It’s hard to describe – kind of smoky, fruity as well. Not overpowering by any means but also not a fade-into-the-background boring perfume.
Dr. Hauschka Body Wash – This was the one dud in my box – not because of the products itself (it smelled amazing and was very moisturizing for this girl’s dried out summer skin) but because of the packaging! First of all, it was the tiniest little metal tube ever – much better suited for a lip gloss type product. And secondly, I barely got one use out of it – partly because the tube was so small, and partly because the metal packaging made it extremely hard to get the product out.

All around very pleased with my box this month. Can’t wait to see what July brings – hopefully there will be a string of great boxes.
