I said last month I got the best Birchboxes EVAR and I am saying it again this month! Seriously! I got 8 items in my box! I pick up a second Birchbox whenever there’s some stupid great deal and I did it again for June so I also got a second box which was also fabulous. The only Birchbox coupon I have right now is to receive 35 extra points on any full size product purchase of $35+ Code:SPF35 Exp 8/31. Oh well!  Oh look, here’s another: Purchase a women’s subscription and choose an additional sample for the first box! Use code SUMMERSHAVE or SUMMERLIP to get a free sample of Whish grapefruit shaving cream or Cynthia Rowley lip gloss. Exp 6/23. Check the Modern Mermaid post for all the 20% off coupons that might work on your order!


The theme was Away We Go  –  perfect for me because I have a quick trip next week! Of course samples are perfect for travel! They’re also making Birchbox kits for JetBlue and had a travel quiz.  My answer was NYC!

June 2014 Birchbox Review #1 – My Box


What’s up, 8 product Birchbox!! I am so down with this!IMG_5143

Folle de Joie eau de parfum ($1) I preferred the fragrance in my other box, though this one has a more summery vibe – mandarin, rose and sandalwood.


LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil ($18) This is a full size product! I got this in my second box last month and I’m psyched to try it in this color! How did I get so lucky? I think it’s Bee’s Knees shade? Why isn’t it on the tube??


Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo ($7.50) This was a huge shampoo sample, and I liked that, because it was accurate in terms of how much shampoo I use vs. how much “other stuff”! I don’t love getting shampoo etc in my boxes but I have been enjoying the ones I’ve been getting from Birchbox recently, so I guess I’m down with it!

Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner  ($1.41) This actual product comes in a tub. Have you ever used tub conditioner? I don’t know how I feel about that!

Davines OI / All in One Milk ($0.83) This uses “roucou oil” which I had to look up! It’s achiote/annato and I mostly use it in my Goya Sazon… So let’s see how it works with hair!


Egyptian Magic Skin Cream ($2.38) This is a great little product, but FYI, the price at Costco is MUCH cheaper. Something like $10 for 12 or 16 oz. It’s hard like a salve but perfect for travel because it’s an all in one healing/moisturizer/etc. I like having this little travel size!IMG_5140

Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum ($4.13) I am most excited to sample this product! I missed out on the half sized sample at Sephora and I’ve had my eye on it (plus I’m loving my Caudalie eye cream). This is a Vitamin C serum to provide antioxidants and hydration!IMG_5141

Ghirardelli Intense Dark Cherry Tango ($0.25) I don’t mind getting a square of chocolate in my box when I’ve received 7 other products! This will be delish!

As much as I loved getting 8 products, this was a really long review. Next time just send me really expensive stuff Birchbox and I’ll be happy! The total value on this one is $35.50. Amazing. As I noted earlier on Tuesday, after points for purchasing on my yearly subscription and completing the surveys (which seem to be getting longer, but I just filled out 14 of them total between the 2 boxes…) this box cost me a quarter. WORD.

June 2014 Birchbox Review #2


The second Birchbox was ordered because I had a $5 off coupon for it!

Um, wow! When I started calculating the values I had no idea it was going to be so $$! My second Birchbox had a total value of $28.48! I actually got this box for $5 and will get $5 in points back for doing the reviews!

    Man, BB is really stepping up their game!! I got a lot of these same samples and am totally loving this and last month!! Hope the awesome trend continues!

  • Thaty

    Awesome boxes I should do like you and just get 2 every month 😛 I’m curious about the Egyptian Cream is that really good?

    • Brandy

      It’s like a balm, kind of hard, you rub it in. I haven’t really had a chance to evaluate it yet but people do love it!

  • Lynsey

    Awesome boxes, Mine was mainly skincare 🙁

  • Mira S

    I didn’t get my box yet but I check on the website and i’m not getting the benefit liner sample:(

  • Mira S

    Awesome boxes!!

    • Brandy

      Yes! What did you get? I’m still waiting to hear from ANYONE who got the benefit liner sample.

  • Angela

    Jealous! I am a lip junkie, and the LAQA is something I want to try! I did get a tiny Cynthia Rowley creamy lip stain and a divine smelling Perlier body balm, along with the Love products and feet wipes (?!? Really? lol)

  • Nicole

    Wow those are awesome. I got a lot of the same products in your first box and I didn’t care for the perfume either. I posted my box on Instagram and noted that I got Supergoop again when I got it in my last box and I wrote that I don’t mind because I can always use sunscreen. Well BB sent me an email and gave me 100 PTS for getting a repeat item. Wow. I was very impressed with their customer service.
