June Birchbox: Unboxed

Wow y'all. The last two weeks have been crazy busy. I went to New Jersey June 9-12 then I was in San Francisco from June 16-25. Yep...crazy. Therefore, I'm just now getting around to reviewing my June Birchbox. 

1. Histoires de Parfums This Is Not A Blue Bottle ($105) // Man perfumes from Birchbox are rarely a win with me. This smells like men's cologne. Like I'm pretty sure I've smelled something very similar on one of my brothers.

2. Laura Geller New York Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator - Gilded Honey ($26) // This stuff is great! I've only recently been getting into using highlighter and I'm still trying to find my favorite. This illuminator stayed on all day (even when running around San Fran all day). I will definitely use the whole sample...maybe even buy the full size!

3. Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel ($24) // I LOVE Benefit's brow products. But I just can't bring myself to buy a full size bottle because it's so small! So getting this sample was so amazing! Though honestly I may break down and just buy it one day.

4. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser ($25.50) // This face wash has great reviews. I think I liked it, but I also broke out after using it. But I think the breakouts may have been caused by stress/traveling/mother nature's monthly gift. So just to make sure I'm going to try it again. Hopefully I'll love it because the reviews are astounding!

5. Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream ($49) // Okay so I tried this in San Francisco where there's very low humidity, so it may not have been the best representation. But I did love this stuff! It made my hair smooth even when it air dried overnight. The real test is if it will keep my hair smooth in this midwest humidity!

So really other than the perfume, this box was pretty wonderful! I'm hoping one day I get a perfume that I actually love, but I may be waiting for a while!
