June Birchbox : Paradise Found


It's that time again in the month where I share my latest discoveries in beauty with thanks to my Birchbox subscription. 

This month's box was under the theme of 'Paradise Found', and the products came within a pineapple drawer style box. Initially I was a little annoyed with the fact this box is different from the others. Being the saddo I am, I have started to use the boxes to store bits in within my dressing table. So it's a little annoying that this box isn't as easy to use in this way. I have kind of decided I like this box a little bit more now, although I still would have loved the products to come in their usual protective pouch!




I don't want to sound like a debbie downer, but I am really not impressed with the contents of this months box. The whole theme of the box is that it is perfect for sunny days, however I can't really see what this has to do with it. (I also did that annoying thing of searching the tags and finding out people got SUCH better things than me yet again!) 

Since last month's box disaster, I had changed my profile to try and not get hair products! This kind of worked out, although I think it was replaced with face and body cream! Come on beauty box where is the beauty products!!


Whish Coconut Milk CC Body Cream RRP £15.50
This is a CC body cream that is supposed to hydrate and bronze you from 'tip to toe'. You are supposed to smooth it generously over your legs, arms and anywhere else you want a little glow. I haven't really tried this out properly yet as I am currently using the St Tropez in shower tanning lotion, but I am looking forward to giving it a go soon! One thing I do know is that it smells amaze! 

Absolution Le Nettoyant Purete RRP £26.00
This product is one the two facial cleansers that I received this month. It has all natural ingredients and apply's smoothly to remove all dirt and grime. I am not sure what I think of this product. Perhaps I should give it a try! 

Huygens RRP £17.90
This is another facial cleanser that smells like lemons. It smells like it would taste amazing, although I am clearly not going to eat it! The product has small rice powder particles within so is gentle enough to use as an everyday cleanser. I am excited to give this a go. This product is also a Birchbox exclusive product. 


Percy & Reed Reassuringly firm session hold hairspray RRP £12.00
There isn't really much to say about this product, except that it is a hairspray that is supposed to be great for humidity. Its a small size, so is going to be perfect for my holiday bag!


Jelly Pong Pong in Fig Jam RRP £17.95
Once you get over the name, this product is a lip and cheek cream that blends out beautifully to add a pop of colour to any makeup look. I am yet to try this, but I imagine it would be perfect for the summer! A little goes a long way though and the product doesn't come out as in your face as it looks in the pot!



So that was June's Birchbox. I was kind of excited to receive it, although was quite disappointed with the repetitive products. I am also hoping that each month will bring me some more  makeup products instead of creams. 

Next month is a Millie Mackintosh designed box which I am really excited to receive. Lets hope the products are of a better variation! Also lets hope there are no hair products!

  1. While the box is gorgeous, I feel like I've had / seen all these products in boxes before.
