|June Birchbox: Jet Set|
First up is a full sized stila one step bronze, which retails for $36. I've been looking a bit peaked lately and could use some color. This supposedly serves as a bronzer, anti-aging serum, and primer all-in-one, so I'll try this under the BB cream I've been using.
Next is a sample sized Stainaic in Beauty Queen by the balm, regularly priced $17, sample worth about $1.80. I love water based lip and cheek stains and this will be a perfect purse sized one.
Another exciting (to me) item is the Pore Minimizing Mask by Masqueology, a South Korean brand. I tried my first sheet mask facials recently (review tomorrow), and I like them. It's an an easy, no mess way to do a facial which I found very refreshing. Three masks sell for $24, so my sample is worth $8.
There were two lifestyle extras this month - the men's cologne sample and a fancy ziplock type bag to put carry on items in when you are flying. The bag is a nice size and feels quite sturdy, plus has a pretty design on it. I'm guessing the men's cologne is in honor of upcoming Father's Day, as well as a way for Birchbox to promote their men's version of Birchbox.
