Birchbox – details and June 2015 Review

Hi again!

Today I will be Reviewing Birchbox for June!

If you are new to Birchbox, Here is the lowdown:

For 10.00 Per Month you will receive a box of 5 beauty products/samples and an occasional bonus product delivered to your door each month. Join Birchbox and use code: BBJETBLUE10 for 10.00 (100 bb points) to use in shop with your new subscription.

For those interested there is also a Mens Birchbox. Details here

birchbox has added many additional options lately as well:

-prior to the month you will receive an email that will often allow you to choose one of your samples from a selection or to choose a specially curated birchbox with each product detailed. You also may stick with the option of keeping your surprise standard monthly box with a selection of the spotlighted monthly items!

-Birchbox Plus: In addition to your monthly boxes birchbox has added Birchbox Plus, this allows you to add a lifestyle item to your box for a discounted price: [anything from additional (full sized) beauty products to items for your home, entertaining and accessories!] (You will receive an email with these options prior to your months box as well)

-Birchbox has also recently added a Beta program: For current and new subscribers, you now have the option to add two additional full sized beauty products to your regular birchbox for an additional 20.00 dollars per month. (a total of 30.00 per month)   –current subscribersADD NOW for an additional 20.00 per month.

-The very best part of Birchbox for me is the Birchbox store and the rewards system that they have. Each month you may review each product for 10 BB points ea. 100 points equals 10.00 to use in the Birchbox shop; essentially every two birchboxes received can get you 10.00 to use in the birchbox shop.  (you also earn 1 bb point for every dollar spent in the shop) There are many other promos that allow you additional bb points and other loyalty discounts throughout each year.  They offer many excellent brands in their shop.

– Birchbox also has the Ace program which you are auto enrolled in after receiving 500 bb points in a calendar year:  learn more about the Ace program.

Here is my June Birchbox:

Harvey Prince: Hello Body Cream – A hydrating Body cream with a floral citrus scent.

Coola: SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for face

Marcelle: Waterproof Eyeliner – blendable waterproof liner that stays all day

Temple Spa: Good Hair Day Shampoo – Botanical formula cleanses, repairs and boosts shine and volume.

Temple Spa :In Good Condition Conditioner – A refreshing peppermint detangler that hydrates, softens and tames frizz

BONUS: L. Erickson: Grab and go Ponytail Holder

Verdict: Not my favorite group of products but I did not chose any special options this month.  -The Body cream has a nice scent and lingered on my skin throughout the day. I know many people are huge fans of Harvey Prince products.  -Shampoo and conditioner samples are not my favorite samples to receive as I have very long thick hair.  Luckily these are larger in size so I will add them to a weekend trip bag and try them then.  -I love the eyeliner, it glides on easily and smoothly, lasts and I love the purple plum color that is already a favorite of mine for a less harsh smokey eye look.  -Ahhh sunscreen, I have enough at this point to keep all of San Francisco from sun damage 🙂  but this formula is extremely light and fresh. perfect for alone or under makeup.  The ponytail holder is cute and soft and I will use it plenty for my daily summer ponytails.
