Birchbox has been hit or miss for me lately. After a real win last month, June was very disappointing.

Products in the box:

Costal Scents Revealed 2 Eyeshadow Palette

Birchbox has the retail value listed as $34 but you can get it from Coastal Scents for $19.95 as of today. Sample value $1.60 based on that price. The $34 set sold on Birchbox includes 3 brushes.

I have heard a lot about this palette and have been considering ordering it. It’s nice to get to test some of the shadows. I just wish the samples weren’t so tiny.

Jasmine Seven Fresh Feet Wipes, Retail Value $9.95, Sample Value $3.31

Really? Wipes for your feet? Honestly, do you have a need for this product in your life? Leave me a comment. I guess maybe if you go to the beach and want to put nice shoes on afterwards? I’m stretching.

Joie, Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum, Retail Value $98, Sample Value $1.73

Folle de Joie means crazy with joy. Sorry Birchbox, not this month. I do like the scent of this perfume. Here is the description of the fragrance on the site, “The perfume opens with a burst of freshness from an intimate blend of calming citrus and a light woodsy floral, giving away to playful hints of cognac. Its middle notes—jasmine and Damascenia rose—give the fragrance a carefree, summery vibe. Finally, warm base notes of spicy woods and rich leather add a seductive finish. ”

Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect, Retail Value $32, Sample Value estimated at $6.40. The sample doesn’t say how much is in it so this is an educated guess.

This is a sulfate-free conditioning detangler. It says is protects color and protects against UV rays too. I wasn’t impressed with the Number 4 shampoo and conditioner I got last month. I also don’t really need a detangler. I think I may need to redo my Birchbox quiz.

Supergoop Everday SPF 30 with Cellular Response Technology, Retail Value $19, Sample value $2.69

I got a Supergoop CC cream in my April Birchbox. I didn’t like it at all. Honestly this sample isn’t big enough to cover my body once and I’m a pretty small person. I have said before I’m not excited to get sunscreen in sample boxes. That still applies.

Box Cost $10, Box Value $15.73

After a fantastic April, Birchbox falls really short this month. There is just a complete lack of substance to the box. There was not a single full size product and the products were underwhelming.

What did you think of this months box?
