Birchbox - June 2018 | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

When I received this box, it was $10/month (I signed up for six months) so I will base my opinions off of $10 instead of the new $15.

What is Birchbox?: Birchbox is the original subscription box, and it's still going strong. Birchbox sends anywhere from 4 to 8 products a month (full size, deluxe sample size, and sample size) and you can review your items each month for 10 points/item plus extra points for sharing your box on Social Media. You can also get additional points for getting a yearly subscription or getting referrals. Every 100 points you earn is $10 to use in their shop. Now on to the box!

How Much is Birchbox?: Birchbox is $15/month if you sign up monthly, $14/month if you sign up for six months (billed up front), and $13/month if you sign up for a year (billed up front). This is a jump from $10/month previously.

Another box, another set of small samples.

Love the box!

Info card.

Beautaniq Beauty Glow Serum ($5.00) - This is a really pretty highlight shade but it pretty much disappears if you blend it, so you just end up with a stripe. I like the shade and tone of this and would wear the heck out of it if it were a powder highlight.

ModelCo More Brows (Medium/Dark) ($9.00) - This is a good shade match but it doesn't add volume or length, it just shades the hairs that are there. Not my favorite brow product.

Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray ($5.18) - I don't like these types of sprays, they just make my hair feel gross and gritty. It did smell good, though!

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer ($2.13) - This is a good moisturizer, for the one time you get to use it. I hate these tiny samples because I just don't know if I like it or not after just one or two uses.

Lumaveil Beauty On the Go Mattifying Primer (Neutral) ($2.00) - Neutral is a crappy name for this shade. There's no neutral. Also, I don't use mattifying primers. My skin is mostly dry and so I only use a mattifying primer if I know I'm going to get oily.

This box was valued at $23.31, definitely over the cost of the box. It was a bit of a letdown even though the value was there. 

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
