I can’t believe this is my last Birchbox from my six-month membership. I am planning an upcoming post where I review my entire Birchbox experience, so be sure to look out for that next week.
My April Birchbox and my May Birchbox were both huge successes in comparison to my other four boxes since December, so I’m happy to say my subscription ended on a high note. Let’s get into my last monthly review:
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo | $24
Guys, you know how much I love my dry shampoos, and this one was no exception. Although I love the Batiste Dry Shampoo, this brand is just as wonderful. I will say that it’s a little pricey in comparison to other brands, but I noticed I don’t use as much to see the product working. I am also in love with the scent Sea Buckthorn Berry because the scent lasts for the majority of the day. This was one of my favorite products from this month’s box.
Coola Daydream SPF 30 Mineral Makeup Primer | $42
I’m a scent-oriented person. Unfortunately, if I don’t like the scent of something (especially something that’s going on my face) I won’t like it. The Coola makeup primer worked well, but I couldn’t get past the scent of iris, white lily and honeysuckle notes. However, I will say that I loved it contained SPF 30 in the formula, but the price of $42 seemed to be a little high for me. Overall, I wouldn’t purchase this product if given the option, but it was the only product I didn’t love from this month’s box.
Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion | $58
I have found my new obsession. Yes, this is extremely expensive, so I understand if you’re not interested because you’re on a budget, but this “scrub” is perfect for sensitive skin. It left my skin feeling refreshed and bright, and I love the scent of the product. Personally, I think it’s important to invest in face products because I’m crazy about taking care of my skin and my skin-care routine. This is a product I will invest in since you only use it once or twice a week.
Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner | $16
The first product I fell in love with from Birchbox was my Eyeko liquid eyeliner. However, this version is a little easier if you’re interested in applying winged eyeliner. This mascara is equal in quality and affordability for those who are on a budget. Personally, I am very weary of purchasing eyeliners in store because I feel like most brands of eyeliners don’t work well for me, so I’m glad I was introduced to this brand. I will definitely purchase this product for myself for awhile.
Tocca Crema de Mano | $10
I typically don’t get excited for simple products like hand cream, but I will say that I am in love with this scent. The notes of green tea and lemon are very calming, which is why I think this hand cream will be perfect to keep in my office at work. The cream contains coconut oil and shea butter, so it’s extremely moisturizing for your skin. I wish the full-priced size was a little larger, but $10 for a small quantity isn’t worth the purchase for me, even if I enjoy it.
Overall, this month’s Birchbox was a success, and there are some products I know I will buy in the future. I would love to know if you loved your Birchbox from this month.
