Birchbox Review: June 2015 *StyleMe Pretty

    I got my first Birchbox for the month of June with all these new products I'm sharing in this post! If you never heard of Birch box, definitely check it out here. For only $10/month, you get to explore new products that are selected for you based on what you answered on the surveys. From what I've read about the company, they provide a ton of sample size products but every now and then you'll get a full size. You also get to review the products and give feedback on which products you like or don't like so that way they are prevented from being delivered to you in the future. This subscription is great if you see value in the $10 from the products you receive. I always research more to figure out if it is the best choice and so far I am L O V I N G it!

Going through the list of my first box:

La Fresh Eco-Beauty WipesThese sample wipes feel amazing when I wipe the makeup off my face before bed! The only thing that bothers me about it is the odor. I can't explain the smell of the wipe but I dealt with it while using it so it is not that bad. What I loved more about it is that it made my face feel fresh and oily- oily where I didn't have to wash my face off multiple times to be satisfied! (retail value $2.99)

Deepa Gurnani hair tie - Ivory Pearls. This hair tie is made from a brand that makes India inspired stylish fashion jewelry. The prices are very high end for hair accessories that range from $50-$350. Most of their accessories include expensive glass crystals with beautiful elaborate designs! (retail value $10)

Laura Geller Beauty Baked Color True Blush - Malibu. The color I received is a soft pink color that is light in pigment. I never wear blush because I am always afraid of looking like a doll but I will give this a try! (retail value $27)

Kérastase Elixir Ultime - Prime. This Elixir helps make dry and frizzy hair feel healthier and like new. I have thin hair and my hair is not as shiny as it used to be, so it definitely helped with that! I was skeptical at first because I was not sure if I hair would feel greasy afterwards. That wasn't the case!  (retail value $56)

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow. This cream can be used alone after cleanse or as a makeup base. It is 100% oil free and it is easy to apply. The color is like a light medium gold color that actually matches perfectly with my skin so when I apply it, I don't see too much of a difference in my complexion. The product (when applied) has this dermatological cream medicine odor to it.

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. When applying, it feels like sandpaper due to the purpose of creating that exfoliating sensation which leaves my skin feeling new and rejuvenated. I used this for the first time today and I will continue to do so until my sample size runs out. (retail value $34)

Considering the retail value of each product, my box was definitely worth more than $150! Thanks to Birchbox I get to decide if I want to buy the full size product. I've been looking for alternative make-up removers.
