Unboxing: June 2015 Birchbox 

I was disappointed with last month’s Birchbox. Honestly, I just resubscribed because I finally got my free Beautyblender sponge.


So I didn’t expect too much this month…

  

Each box this month has a unique code that you can use to enter on birchbox.com/SayYes wherein you can get discounts, points and other goodies.

This looks promising. There are 6 products all in all.

Two of my least favorite colors: Pink and Orange. But they do look good for summer so I can see past that.

  

SARAHPOTEMPA Darby Clip
I absolutely love this! This is the “lifestyle extra” included in my box this month. I have thin hair and this clip can hold all of my hair into a bun for that easy-I-dont-care-wearing-my-PJs hairstyle. I know you’re supposed to use this for sectioning when your styling your hair but so far, what I thought of is the most practical one.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel

First sentence on the “Directions”… “This is not a mask.” Fiiiine, snappy much!? 😅 It says on the box that it is an acid-free peel that you massage to your face until small bead-like dead skin forms. This reminds me so much of this Japanese product, Cure Natural Aqua Gel, that I got on my September 2013 BDJ Box (a subscription box in the Philippines).

Supergoop! Everyday SPF 50 with Cellular Response Technology


That name is a mouthful! But I appreciate sunscreen products anytime! Supergoop is popular for their sunscreen products so I am looking forward in bringing this to my trip to California next month.

Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner

Because everyone needs an indigo eyeliner when they’re swimming…

Joie Folle de Joie Eau de Parfum

Even if I don’t know how to pronounce this product, I still like perfume samples so this is a thumbs-up for me.

Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow

I thought it was too dark for my skin but it blended well on the back of my hand as I was swatching it so let’s see when I use this on my face.

Overall Impression

So, am I saying YES to June 2015 Birchbox? Yes, I’m satisfied. I can see myself trying everything on this box.

Unboxing: May 2015 Birchbox

I received my second Birchbox last week but I was a bit underwhelmed so I hesitated if it’s worth my time to make a post about it… Harsh, right?!

 

After opening the Birchbox for May 2015…

Originally, I cancelled my subscription but they offered a great deal that if you resubscribed, you will get a Beautyblender sponge and cleanser. So for $10, of course I did!

It got me…

I got my Birchbox last May 22 but as of today, I haven’t received the free gift yet.

So here are the samples for the Birchbox May 2015. Be the judge…

   
      

Dr. Jart Premium BB cream for the face

  
Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment for the hair

     

Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizing for the face and neck

   

W3ll People The Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara

 
Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask 

   

I can’t wait for the beautyblender freebies! 

So what can you say?

Unboxing: April 2015 Birchbox

Birchbox partnered with Mad Men to come up with a beauty box, on top of the regular one, this month.

You see, I’ve been loving Mad Men lately and have been binge watching on Netflix. Who doesn’t love the dapper Don Draper, the vixen Joan, the poised Betty and the preppy Peggy?! I love their clothes, their make-up and their accessories that I was even thinking of channeling their fashion sense once I start working again, lol.   

I started from Season 1 last month and now I’m on Season 6, woohoo!
  

So dainty!
  
Joan is fierce!
  
Joan told Peggy to stop dressing like a little girl on this scene. But honestly, I like this blue dress!
  
Betty said what I feel about the Mad Men characters

So Mad Men basically influenced my decision a lot on why I got the Birchbox for April 2015. For $10, why not give it a try.

The box is pretty!
  
Hello there, smoking Don Draper! It seems like almost all of the characters in Mad Men are smoking, drinking and having extramarital affairs , lol
    
A brief description of what’s inside the box and their prices if bought in full size.
  
The other 2 items are inside the green Birchbox box.
  
For the hair…
  
For the body…
  
For the face as highlighter…
  
For the lips…
 
A sample perfume
Three of the 5 items can be considered deluxe/travel size. 

I am not sure though which Mad Men character has inspired this box. I was thinking of Peggy because of the MLBB lipstick and the body wash. For all those who didn’t know Peggy, she was a secretary of Don Draper turned copywriter because she’s smart and ambitious. She works so hard and play hardball with the men around her. She wears considerably simple clothes for that era and wears barely there makeup. 

I can see Peggy in me. But I can be Joan too if I want to, *wink*.
