The June Birchbox is themed with traveling and flying It concentrates a lot on products that are great for refreshing the body and making the flights easier.

For those of you who don't know, Birchbox is a company that specializes in deluxe size beauty samples for a small fee of $10.00 a month.The box comes usually with 4-5 beauty samples and some months the boxes even contain "lifestyle" extras. Birchbox also offers the products they sample in their full sizes on their website for when you find a sample you really love and must have. 

When opening the box every month you find a small letter from the team at Birchbox that tells you all about the products inside your box. This is what this months card looks like. 

The first product in my box is the Comodynes Self Tanning Intensive Wipes. It includes two packets and these are safe and are very natural looking. They work with your skin tone to give you a beautiful glow. One towelette is designed to cover the whole body and the tone is build able.
Full Size contains eight $14.99
Sample Value $ 3.75

The Second product in my BB is by Masqueology with the Pore Minimizing Mask. this mask is easy for people on the go who need to recharge their face. It's soothing and relaxing all while minimizing pores and freshening up the skin.
Full Size contains three $24,00
Sample Value $8.00   

The third product in my box is from Stila and it's the One Step Bronze. This is a three in one product that contains primer, bronzer and serum. As soon I opened this product I thought it looked like a strand of DNA but the product is designed this way so that it incorporates different tones for a balance of bronzing and highlighting. All the while keeping your makeup in place. 
Full Size  1 fl oz $36.00
Sample Value $36.00
The four product from the box comes from the Balm cosmetics with the Stainiac Lip and Cheek tint in Beauty Queen. 
This product can be built up on the lips as a stain and is also great for blending a little color into the cheeks. The consistency is similar to a gel at first but blends in well.   
Full Size 3 fl oz $17.00
Sample Value $ 2.27

For my Birchbox Lifestyle Extra I received this seal able plastic bag from tili. The bag is super cute and perfect for holding beauty supplies or snacks for a fight. It feels very durable and could be reused quite a few times. 
Full Size contains 12 bags $8.49 
Sample Value $0.70 

Birchbox Man Extra
This month I got to sample a product from the BB Man boxes that were recently launched. In honor of Father's Day they included a new scent from John Varvatos called Star USA. Some of us know him well as a fashion designer and recent designer on the NBC Show Fashion Star. I found the scent to be refreshing and not to strong although my (hard to please when it comes to cologne) boyfriend thought it smelled okay until I told him it was for men. So as far as guy approved I can't be certain, but I approve! 
Full Size 1.7 oz $55.00
Sample Value $ 12.94

Total Value of June Birchbox  $63.66
