I was pleasantly surprised with my June Birch box, I actually loved everything!
Let me tell you what birch box is, just in case you are not familiar with it. It's a monthly subscription service which is $10.00 a month where you get sent 5-6 high-end samples each month. First you take a little survey so they can find out more about your skin, make up likes and dislikes so they know what to send you.
You know how I love trying out new products? Well, with the birch box, I can try high end products without having to buy full size products. If I love the product, then I can go buy it :)

What Birchbox says about this product: Natural lemongrass and chamomile team up with synthetic-free cosmecutical actives to thoroughly clean skin. At the same time, the alpha hydroxy acids in raw sugar gently buff away dead layers and excess oils without stripping off your skin’s natural moisture. FUll size: $32.95
What I think: WOW! This stuff not only smells amazing, but it feels amazing. It actually foams up wonderfully, not something you get from a ordinary scrub. My facial scrub costs around the same amount, I may actually change it up next time.
What Birchbox says about this product: Made with softening oat milk extracts, plus corn and rice starches, this ultra-fine powder spray leaves nary a trace of residue behind. It performs a heroic array of functions. For starters, it soaks up oil and sweat from your roots and helps revive second day hair. Next, it amps up volume and helps extend the life of blowouts. FUll size: $18.00
What I think: I use dry shampoo all the time, this stuff is great at soaking up oil, but I didn't notice any volume. Its kind expensive for a dry shampoo. Not sure if I would repurchase, I need to use it more to see.
What Birchbox says about this product: The smooth shea-butter complex moisturizes and coats lips with saturated, glossy color. FUll size: $16.00 for two.
What I think: I got a very pretty pink shade, which is perfect for the summer. It is super saturated, The swipe on the right (below) is just one swipe, I had to dip my finger for the lighter swipe on the left. I wouldn't wear it as saturated, I just put a few dots and blend it in with my finger.
What Birchbox says about this product: Mod in Manhattan, a brilliant off-white that represents the glow of the mega-watt city at night. FUll size: $8.00 for 4 mini polishes.
What I think: This is such a lovely color, I swatched it on my pinky, that was one coat! Amazing!
What Birchbox says about this product: Each twistband™ is made of soft elastic that keeps braids, buns, and ponytails secured. Because they’re thicker than regular hair ties, they don’t leave crimps in hair. FUll size: $14.00 for 6.
What I think: I love twist bands, And these are by far the cutest ones I have ever seen! I like to wear my hair down, but also pull it up when I get hot or it gets in the way. WHich means I usually wear a hair tie on my hand. These hair ties don't hurt my hand and look so pretty. Going into my cart right now.
