Fashion Friday: June Birchbox

I'm just going to come out and say it.  I loved my June Birchbox. In the first 24 hours I tried four of the five samples (which is huge considering I'm not sure I've tried any of the samples from May).  I loved everything so much so that I used my 500 points ($50 off) to get two of the products (along with a free pair of headphones valued at $50. Go. Me.

suki exfoliate foaming cleanser. This was my favorite. Hands down.  I got a teeny sample, but stretched it for a week and turned around and ordered the full sized product. I know, it's pricey, but I'm trying really hard to wash my face more than just once a day and the smell of this product makes me want to use it all the time. Plus it works, so that's a perk.

COOLA Tinted Matte SPF 30 for Face.  At first I thought this was a lotion. Then I realized it was a sunscreen.  It is a great makeup alternative when you're going to spend the day outside. It is so light that you can't even tell you're wearing it. Bought this in the full size as well.

Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara.  I'm not sure if it's just the way it was packaged or if it is actually the full sized product, but I'm leaning towards the idea that I received thefull sized product.  That's $20 and the price of two boxes. Any time you get a full sized product it's a win.  It's a bit clumpy, but it was almost free so I'll look past that.

Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris.  This is a very heavy scent.  That being said, I like it.  Not enough to wear every day, but enough to wear when I'm looking for something new and not spending the day in tight quarters with a large crowd.

Dr. Hauschka Body Wash.  This I love. It came in a small little aluminum tube and smells dee-vine. When doesn't lemongrass spell good?  Only downside is that the product claims to lather up into a wonder foamy mess.  When you just have a simple washcloth (like me), not much lathering.
