June 2014 Birchbox Deconstructed #Birchbox

Tuesday, June 17, 2014
This month, Birchbox redeemed itself by sending 5 goodies that I am loving. Check out what I received (in no particular order).

1. Perlier Body Balm (Received a sample. Full size, $20)
This fast-acting, everyday lotion moisturizes without feeling greasy or sticky. Nice, light almond milk scent.
My thoughts: I can always use another lotion for my purse or car, and I loved that Perlier had a soothing scent and wasn't oily.

2. Coola Mineral Sunscreen (Received a sample. Full size, $36)
This combination sunscreen/BB cream is made with 70% organic ingredients and goes on smoothly for a non-greasy finish. Make sun protection easy and not so chore-like.
My thoughts: I wear sunscreen daily but usually have to follow it up with a BB cream. I liked Coola because it was both.

3. Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum (Received sample. Full size, $98)
This perfume has both the relaxed and playful vibe of California and the seductiveness and refinement of Paris.
My thoughts: This is a delightful scent, and I loved that the sample had a spray top. 

4. Suki Exfoliating Cleanser (Received sample. Full size, $33)
This organic lemongrass and chamomile-infused cleanser gently gets rid of dirt, oil, and makeup, while gently wiping away old layers of skin with nonabrasive sugar.
My thoughts:  I liked how clean and refreshed my face felt.

5. Coastal Scents Eye Shadow Palette (Received a sample. Full size, $34)
An exclusive collection of four alluring colors from the Revealed 2 eye shadow palette.
My thoughts: The colors were exactly the ones that I normally wear (shades of beige and brown. However, three out of four colors were shimmery, and I don't like a shimmery shadow.
