Birchbox Unboxing: June 2016

Hey guys! Today I am back with a sweet and short post: an unboxing of this month’s Birchbox! If you are not familiar with this then click here and check out my previous unboxing where I also talk about the subscription service in more detail. Birchbox is set up a little differently this month, with a keepsake drawer instead of the usual lid and it comes in two bright colourful designs featuring Palm Trees or Pineapples. Inside, there are some lovely beauty goodies- from must-have makeup to brilliant body care- that are just perfect for summer. Think of it as a box of sunshine!

For starters, Birchbox subscribers had the chance to upgrade their June box with a pair of Quay Australia sunglasses for a very special price. I am obsessed with this brand so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to add another beautiful pair of sunnies to my collection. There were two designs to choose from and the ones that I got are called “Kosha”. Now on to the actual content of the box…

1. Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigment in Fig Jam

This pigment smells so nice, I had to stick my finger into the jar as soon as I opened it! The bright pink shade is more subtle than it actually looks and it is the perfect way to to add a pop of colour to lips and cheeks. It blends out beautifully and it is ultra-hydrating.

2. Percy & Reed Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray

I have tried this product before and it is an absolute gem. A spritz of strong hold hairspray will keep everything in place. It is also ultra-fine and humidity resistant and it won’t leave you with that crunchy feeling like most hairsprays do, making restyling so much easier.

3. Huygens Le Gommage Visage

This is a creamy scrub packed with rice powder particles to smooth and purify all skin types. It is supposed to be gentle enough for daily use. I am really excited about this little jar because exfoliation is my favourite step in my skincare routine. It is really important to slough away dead skin cells to prep your canvas.

4. Whish Coconut Milk CC Body Cream

I admit…I’ve never heard of a CC body cream before so I’m quite curious to try this lotion. It is supposed to have a fast-absorbing formula that will hydrate and bronze you from tip-to-toe while treating your skin to nourishment too. Sounds very promising…

5. Absolution Le Nettoyant Pureté

I am so glad I found this product in my June Birchbox as I’ve used it before and I remember liking it a lot. It is a gentle gel face cleanser that contains natural ingredients, like chamomile and oats, which remove dirt and grime while reducing redness and irritation.
