June Birchbox

Welcome to June's Birchbox. This month's box is themed around, yeah you guessed it … the world cup! The products included are some of the best from across the world and don't you just love the colours of the pouch!

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré

I've never heard of this brand before, probably because it's French and to get it in the UK you mainly have to order it online. This moisturiser contains natural ingredients and soothes skin. It can also double up as a hydrating mask by layering on. A full size version will cost you £12.99+. 

Silk & Honey Shea Butter Hair Mask

I've really started to enjoy using hair masks recently. I am currently using one from Ojon and also have one from The Body Shop on the go. I'm looking forward to trying a higher end one to see how it compares. A full DIY set costs £55. 

OPI Nail Lacquer - The Brazil Collection

These cute diddy nail varnishes have been created especially for the world cup. The shades have been inspired by the tropical rainforests and sandy beaches. I received the shade Kiss Me I'm Brazilian and it's a beautiful pink shade that is perfect for summer! A full seize version costs £11.95. 

Birchbox Brazil-Inspired Keyring

I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do with this keyring but it's a very appropriate cute little extra!

Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical Lipstick

I've heard good things about Yves Rocher but I've never actually tried any of their products. I received this lipstick in the shade Rouge Brilliance. Although this looks bright, it's actually very sheer and glossy as you can see from the swatch. The introductory price for this is £9.90.

Naobay Body Radiance Lotion

Again I've never heard of Naobay either! This is a fresh lemony body lotion with shea butter, olive and avocado oils. A full size tube costs £14. 

I have to say I'm not overly impressed with this box. I'll definitely use all of the products but compared to some of the other boxes I've received this one wasn't as good! Hopefully it'll pick up again next month!

Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What did you get in your box? Or have you tried any of these products?



  1. I think the birchboxes where pretty hit and miss this month by the looks of it, I'm still waiting on mine and everyone seems to have theirs :( wahh!

    1. Yeah I'm pleased to know I wasn't the only one that was slightly disappointed! Aw no hopefully it'll come in the next couple of days! X

  2. I kinda want to start getting a 'birchbox' but I will always be worried I don't like something!

    1. You should definitely try it! I think it's good trying new things and theres bound to be something that turns up that you're not keen on but I guess it's the gamble you take! I can't say I've ever had anything that I really don't like! X

  3. I've been considering Birchbox for ages, but know I'd just end up hoarding lots of mini's! This one looks cute though, I'd love to try that hair mask xx

    Lo at Notebook 54

    1. Yeah I have plenty of mini's to keep me going now! X
