June Birchbox


I do love getting Birchbox's as I love the surprise each month, I also love trying out the new products which I probably wouldn't get around to otherwise. I just wishhhhh there was a 'genre' to choose from so you could get what you wanted more. I mean sometimes I do enjoy the surprise, but sometimes not so much..

This month there was:

Premae Mild Microdermabrasion £25.00 - This is a vegan body/facial scrub to use on any skin that needs some tlc, blemishes and to clear pores. I do love microdermabrasion scrubs (love the Dr.Brant one but it's sooo pricey), so I was happy to see a more budget one. This also doesn't have a strong scent like the Dr.Brant ones, so is a lot better for sensitive skin, just best to use in moderation as you don't want to strip away the good stuff.

Cynthia Rowley Creamy lip stain £14.00 - This is a creamy lipgloss which claims to leave a stain to your lips after it wears off. For me, I don't really like lip stains, I like it to look like I have lipstick on as thats the look I like to go for. It is a pretty colour though, I like the orange/red tone. I did get some compliments on it though when I wore it, just wish it was more matte.

Penhaligon's Iris perfume £85.00 - I just saw the £85 and winced a little, I don't think I could justify the price of it at all especially when I've never heard tale of the brand before. It is quite a citrus scent, but not so much like you smell a fruit basket. It is pretty nice and good for summer, but I do think there are nicer and cheaper alternatives.

HIP Ultra Brilliance shampoo £15.00 - This is a brand I've never heard of, but I like the weird little packaging anyway. This is supposed to give your hair the boost it needs with a mix of peppermint and eucalyptus, so it does smell a little minty. But it's a nice smell! And a nice shampoo, it doesn't leave any residue in my hair either.

Cowshed Knackered Cow body lotion £18.00 -  I loved this instantly just because of it's name.. I'm always a knackered cow, so how fitting! (is there a grumpy one?). I got a lavender one, which I'm pretty happy about as it's one of my favourite smells. I'm going to use this at night as lavender is good to help you sleep, smells delicious.

STY London Metalic Tattoos £7.99 - I love temporary tattoos, I currently have a heap to use up.. I just need to actually go out to use them ha! I got some plain ones which are mostly bracelet shape which I get the most use of so pretty happy with, though they are pretty short so hope they wrap fully around my wrist!

I am pretty excited to use the body lotion and tattoo's though, I am actually out a few times this month (for once) so may actually get some use of these eventually!

Do you get any subscription boxes? What ones do you like?
