June Birchbox

It's time for June's Birchbox unboxing! On a side note I can't believe it's June already!! Where is this year going! As most of you will be away this month is all about football around the world and Birchbox has grabbed onto that football theme for this months box with "Global strikers". Don't worry you won't find smelly socks or football accessories in here though, instead they've hand picked products from a few of the countries playing. 

As Brazil is the host nation for this years world cup the Birchbox pouch is bright green and yellow! Brazil also is represented in an OPI nail varnish and the lifestyle extra. The tips cards also have colourful football themed backs.

Onto the products...

Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre (sample size, full size from 12.99)

A french moisturiser that has been favoured by dermatologists for years. It contains only natural ingredients and is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins. On the box it actually says it can be used for a multiple of things other than just a moisturiser - a milky make up remover (guess you apply to a dampened face), a mask, after shave cream and for baby care. Great for all skin types. I'll definitely be testing this out, nice little sample size too.

Silk + Honey Shea Butter Hair Mask (sample size, full size £55)

I love the smell of this, reminds me of turkish delight, it has a subtle rose scent. This is England's representation in this box with this lovely hair mask, you apply it to wet hair after you've shampooed it - leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse. It feels like it would be more of a deep conditioner than a mask but I will let you know. This one has a short shelf life so don't forget to use it!

OPI nail Lacquer - The Brazil collection Next stop...the bikini zone (sample size, full size £11.95)

This is the first OPI nail varnish I've tested and consistency wise I quite like it, but I'm undecided on this colour. It's a duo tone nail varnish with a shimmery silvery purple base with hints of amethyst running through it, I can tell that some people would love this but for me I think I prefer bolder summery colours. To get the full effect of this varnish I think you need 3 thin coats. I'm up for swapping on colours BTW, let me know (I would love the pink or orange colours from this months)

Yves Rocher Sheer Botanical lipstick - Marron Glace (full size £9.90)

I'm not going to lie when I saw this I thought how wrong could Birchbox get with my shade selection! On first glance you think this lipstick would only suit those with darker skin tones, but these are very sheer lipsticks, as you can see in the swatch. When applied to lips this is a very natural nude and is actually very similar to my own lip colour but adds a slight hint of some more colour. I would have probably preferred the Litchi shade just so it wouldn't be nearly identical to my own lip colour (again willing to swap). These smell amazing though! The cherry scent is delicious!

Noabay Body Radiance (sample size, full size £14)

This smells like lemon cheesecake! No word of a lie, it is yummy! The scent stays on your skins, so if you're a fan of lemon scents you will LOVE this! It contains shea butter, olive oil and avocado oils so is very good for keeping your skin soft. Sample size is okay, its not completely full so I think depending on size there's enough for maybe 1.5/2 full body applications in there.

Overall I'm quite happy with this months contents, I would have preferred some different shade selections but I'm still happy. Always seem to have bad luck with the nail polish colours in these boxes! Oh Well! What did you make of this months Birchbox? You like?
