June Birchbox: Away We Go!
I received a nice assortment of items this month, starting with a generously sized sample of Davines Love Smoothing shampoo (sample value $7.50). I also received foil samples of the Love Smoothing condition ($1.41) and OI/All in One leave in treatment (83 cents), so I'll be able to get the full experience with this line of products. Nice!
Italian Mandarin, ruby red grapefruit, and Nashi pear) and florals for an elegant vibe", and at first spray my initial thought was "oh, another fruity floral". After 15-20 minutes, however, it settles into something deeper and even a bit dusky (amber and musk are base notes), and I found myself sniffing my arm frequently. I like!
Last up is a sample of Benefit's They're Real! mascara ($7.66). I'm drawing a blank of if I've tried this before, so it will be added to my rotation of mascaras when there is an opening. The total value of this month's box is $28.79, but even more important, they are all items I will use :-)
Birchbox has also partnered with JetBlue with exclusive amenity kits for the new Mint Experience. Jet Blue is not one of the airlines in my area, unfortunately, but based on the quiz included this month, it appears Portland is a city I'd like to visit. Pretty accurate, as I did enjoy visiting Portland when I lived in the Boson area. #Birchbox + #JetBlue.
