Birchbox June 2012 - My First DUD!

So this month I was not very thrilled with my Birchbox. I thought it was a dud quite frankly, which is rare. I usually love getting my Birchbox in the mail!

In this box was:
  • theBalm cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen (retail value $2.27)
    • Thought that this was a great product and a better price than Benefit's Tints, which I love!
  • Eyeko Fat Eye Stick ***FULL SIZE (retail value $15)
    • Good product, super smooth consistency.
  • Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream (retail value $1.28)
    • Wish I either got something else, or at least a better sample!
  • Luna Mini Bar (retail value ~$0.75)
    • Great product - shouldn't have been included.
  • Borghese Bagno Di Vita Soak (retail value $3.50)
    • On the fence with this one, because I love the company. Guess I need to try it before I come to any conclusions.
  • A coupon for $25 off coupon to Artspace (I believe the lowest priced piece was $60)
    • Some of the really good pieces were too expensive for me :(
The total value of my box = $22.80, which is good.

I should say that I normally love getting my Birchbox in the mail, so I don't want to discourage you if you are interested in joining Birchbox. Just be prepared that you might receive a product/s that you might not like or want.

If you are interested in subscribing to Birchbox, it is $10/month and you can click here: BIRCHBOX
Here's to a better box next month!

Happy Unboxing!



  1. It certainly wasn't the best box this month, but i think it was still a good one. at least with the eye pencil alone you get more than what you paid. Hope you get better stuff next time.

    1. Thanks! I have to agree - still a good box. I ate my Luna bar and loved it as always :) I really appreciate the comment!

  2. You got the same box as another blogger. The Luna bar seems like a waste. I hate receiving food! Except in my cravebox bc that is more of a lifestyle box. I got Eyeko fat stick and I want to try it but it's so thick!
