Birchbox – June

on June 20, 2013

Yay, it’s that time of the month again!
(noooo – not THAT time of the month)
My June Birchbox is here!

June’s Theme:  Wanderlust

 I already see a few loves – let’s break it down

The box menu for the month

Super cute postcards.
These would actually be fun in some Ikea frames
and used among framed vacation pictures for a wall collage!

Davines Love Smoothing and Oi Absolute Beautifying Potion
Shampoo – Retail $24 for 250 ml/8.45 fl oz – Sample Value $7.20 for 75 ml/2.5 fl oz
Conditioner – Retail $27.50 for 250 ml/8.45 fl oz – Sample Value $1.32 for 12 ml/.41 fl oz
Oil – Retail $41 for 135 ml/4.56 fl oz – Sample Value $0.91 for 3 ml/.10 fl oz

The salon I go to uses Davines exclusively.  I do love their products and have used these in the past.
However, I don’t care for their shampoos – they don’t clean my scalp very well.
Their conditioners rock!  I have thick/coarse hair with lots of curl and found the Momo
conditioner is my favorite!  The Love is a very close second.

The oil works great – my hair stylist uses it every time I get my hair done
but my husband does not like the smell very much.

LAQA & Co Lil’ Lip Duo
Retail $16 for 2 – Sample Value $8

Whoa!  I was hoping this would be a shear pop of color.
It’s very opaque and kind of clownish looking on me.
The color is a crazy hot pink that looks like my toddler painted my lips.
Not exactly going to inspire passionate kisses from the hubs…

Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser
Retail $32.95 for 4 fl oz – Sample Value $2.06 for .25 fl oz

I love the use of sugar as an exfoliant – how brilliant!
And a little goes a looooong way.  This tiny tub should last 4 to 5 times!

What I don’t love is the smell…
Imagine having Pledge furniture cleaner smeared on your face.

Also, this is not a very effective cleanser.
But for a scrub every few days it will be great.

Color Club Wanderlust Collection – London Calling
Retail $8 for 4 minis – Sample Value $2

I have to admit I am getting a little used to this colored White Out fad for nails.
This is a fun green color – but I wish I had it back in March
for St. Patrick’s Day!

This is my first time getting Color Club.
I have been using lots of products that are 3, 4, and 5 free
(Butter, Essie, Zoya…)
so the fumes were a shock to the system!

Update:  I got tons of compliments with this color!
Looks great with tan toes!

Total Value for my June Birchbox – $21.49

All-in-all this was a nice assortment with all but one item getting used.
