June 2015 Birchbox – Next Stop, Adventure


Coola SPF 50 Sport – Mango // This is my sample choice this month. I have tried and loved this sunscreen before, along with many other products from Coola. This is not your typical sunscreen. It smells great and does not have the texture of a typical sunscreen. It soaks in to the skin completely, mixes well with makeup, and does not leave a white film on your face. This stuff stays on through both sweat and swim, and the SPF is great for a fair-skinned girl like me.

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant // In a previous box, I sampled a different product from Paula’s Choice that I liked. This is a chemical exfoliant that works without having to scrub, which is super convenient. It is a gel consistency that goes on smoothly and evenly, without getting sticky on the skin. It burns a bit, which is to be expected, but overall it did not irritate my skin too bad. Sometimes products like these flush out all the nasty stuff from the pores, causing breakouts, but I did not experience it with this one. This exfoliant left my skin feeling softer and rejuvenated, but did not yield amazing results.

Erickson Grab & Go Pony Tube // The L. Erickson Ponytail holder I received is a nice addition to my box. I threw it in my makeup bag to use when I am doing my hair or makeup. It is light and does not leave a crease in my hair. It is a step up from your typical ponytail holder. I received the silver one, though I would have preferred the black one.

Temple Spa Good Hair Day Shampoo // I was expecting not to like this because of the patchouli scent, but I love it! It lathers so easily and rinses completely clean without any residue. My hair is left feeling so clean with a little extra body and texture to it. The fresh scent also lasts through the second day, remaining subtle and not overpowering. Great shampoo!

Temple Spa In Good Condition Conditioner // The perfect pair to the Temple Spa Good Hair Day Shampoo. It is quite simple; it conditions without weighing down my hair. I have very fine strands that do not take well to heavy conditioning products. It feels nice and detangles as well as conditions. Plus I love the fresh minty scent!

 Marcelle Mini Waterproof Eyeliner Travel Kit // This is so unlike anything that I would typically try, but for the sake of the review I gave it a go. I received this mini eyeliner in the shade Electric Blue. To my surprise, it actually worked for me! The formula of this pencil is great, it glides on beautifully and stays put once it is on. I will definitely be using this throughout the summer for a pop of color.
