Birchbox: June 2013

It's Birchbox time! I received my June box in the mail a couple of days ago and I was surprised to see that Birchbox totally revamped their look. Not only have they changed their logo and website, the product information cards have also gotten an upgrade. The cards don't just contain info on the items, but how to use them as well. I really like their new look and it's a very welcome change.

This month's theme is "wanderlust". The boxes were curated with an assortment of beauty items that are travel friendly and perfect to have at hand for that next getaway. I am really pleased with this month's items and I can't wait to see what July's box has in store. 

Let's check out what I received in my June box!

Color Club Reign In Spain Nail Lacquer: Birchbox has teamed up with Color Club to create an array of exclusive pastel shades that were inspired by Birchbox's four international headquarters-Barcelona, New York, London, and Paris. I received the shade Reign In Spain and I couldn't be anymore pleased with this selection. This vivid coral peach is just the perfect shade to sport in the summer months. I love it! (Full Size: $8)

Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo: I have heard a lot of nice things about Davines hair products. I am excited to give this shampoo a try. This shampoo was specially formulated to help tame tangle-prone and frizzy hair. It contains Indian fig extract which helps moisturize, and olive oil to gently cleanse. This product sounds like a nice option for my dry and frizzy hair. I appreciate the generous 2 oz bottle sample size, which will surely be enough for quite a few uses. (Full Size: $24) 

Oscar de la Renta live in love Foaming Body Scrub: Smooth skin is a must for this warm summer weather, and body scrubs are the perfect products to achieve just that. This hydrating exfoliator works into a lather, and leaves behind a light floral fragrance. I have a feeling I am going to like this one. Anything with a light floral scent is alright by me. (Full Size: $42)

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder: This mineral powder not only helps absorb excess oil, it also contains very fine particles which reflect light and minimizes the look of flaws. My skin does have the tendency to get oily-especially in this warm weather, so this powder will definitely come in handy to eliminate shine. (Full Size: $40)

Davines Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion: These two Davines sample packets were the beauty extras in my box. This oil is packed with antioxidants to prevent breakage, and it also helps strengthen the hair with continued usage. I really enjoy hair oils; they add a healthy looking shine to my hair, and they help tame my unruly frizz. (Full Size: $41)

Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner: Infused with borage seed oil, this moisturizing conditioner helps protect tresses against breakage, while managing tangles and taming frizz. I am actually on the market for a new conditioner so I have high hopes that this one will work wonders for my dry hair. (Full Size: $27.50)

Right in tune with the "wanderlust" theme, I also received a set of postcards in my box. I think these are nice to have around, and they are super cute to boot.
