June Birchbox 2012

I was so thrilled to get this months Birchbox. It was awesome and I was so surprised to see a full-sized product. Well anyways let get into the box. This months box was themed Jet Set. It was a box that was devoted to products that would indulge your inner jet setter. As for me I really don't travel that much & if I do go anywhere it's maybe a day trip and I rarely stay the night. Unless I go and see my parents then that will involve a longer visit. I do fly there so some of these items will be handy.
So In my Jet setting box is the following: Comodynes Self-Tanning Intensive Towelettes 2 pack of them which is great. So who needs the sun when you can tan safe. This is a build able, and natural-looking tan which won't make you orange. They are Europe's bestselling towelettes. I normally don't like tanning at all. I tend to stay pale. So I may try these on my legs just to see how they work. It says one towelette will work on the whole body. I must be sure to exfoliate well so that I won't get any weird patches. Sample value is $2.25 each

From Masquelogy a Pore Minimizing Mask which is a sheet mask. This mask targets visible pores and shrinks them. While amping up your skins moisture levels. Use it daily and if your brave- during your flight. Sample value $8.00

Now this was the product that made my day and June's box. It was the Stila One Step Bronze. This says fake an island glow with this three-in-one bronzer, primer, and serum. It also keeps your skin's oil production in check. So with that I think this will be interesting to try. I have used powdered bronzers in the past & never liked the way they looked on me. So this should be nice. I will indeed use this. This sample was full-sized so its value $36

The last item was from The Balm. It is there Stainiac in Beauty Queen. I already own this and really like it. So I was happy to get a sample sized one for my purse and travel. This two-in-one lip and cheek stain is a sheer gel formula that delivers a subtle, long-wearing flush. Sample value $2.27

So as a lifestyle extra I did get what you would call a pretty zip-lock bag. This bag is from Tili. You can breeze through airport security with these too-cute plastic bags. They're perfectly sized for storing all your travel essentials(and beauty samples). I sure you could use them for snacks or a sandwich as well. Sample value $0.94

So the last item was for Birchbox Man which is a $20 monthly service. It was a sample of a cologne from John Varvatos Star USA. So in honor of Father's Day they included this dapper cologne, a blend of ginger, juniper, berries, and vetiver. I will give this to my husband to try. Maybe he will like it. Sample value $1.63

Like I said, earlier this box is fantastic. I really loved everything inside this box. The value of the box was $53.34. With that being said you can join birchbox for only $10 a month. If you have any questions or want me to review in depth any of these items let me know. Thanks.
