June Birchbox 2011!!

So, this gorgeous pink box was waiting for me today after I finished putting my son down for a nap. I have been waiting somewhat impatiently since the 7th when I got the email that it shipped out.  I have obsessively been watching nearly every single June Birchbox  Youtube video since the 7th to see what everyone got. Now if your not familiar with Birchbox it is a monthly subscription (similar to a magazine) where you get 4 to 5 deluxe beauty samples shipped to you every month. There are couple options as to how you would like to be billed. The first and the one that I have chosen is to have my card automatically debited $10 once a month and you can cancel anytime. The second option is to pay for the full year, which is $110 in which they give you one months box for free. In which case you would continue to receive your boxes for the full year without the opt out opportunity, but you can transfer it so that someone else receives it. You also receive customer reward points for every box that you get. I believe it is 10 points a box and then once you get your box they ask they you review the products that were in your box for additional points. Every 100 reward points that you collect counts for $10.00 towards the purchase of a full size product from their site.  Once you join they ask that you fill out your beauty questionnaire which asks you questions about your skin type, and beauty preferences. This way they can send you beauty samples that are relevant to you.  OK, with all that info out of the way lets jump into what was in my June Birchbox!

  • KATE SPADE TWIRL: it says "She had a cocktail in her hand and confetti in her hair" The 1.7 FL OZ RETAILS FOR $65 and the 3.4 FL OZ RETAILS AT $80. It is a very floral and fresh scent. "This flirty scent feels carefree and joyful-just the thing to wear on your adventures at home or abroad" 
  • NUXE REVE DE MIELULTRA COMFORTABLE BODY CREAM: RETAILS FOR $35 for 150ML "This Parisian import uses natural honey and macadamia nut oil to keep skin silky-it's a must for your next flight"
  • SIRCUIT COSMECEUTICALS/ MOLECULAR MIST: 1FL OZ RETAILS FOR $28 (this stuff has a light scent and I actually just used it. It's been very humid today and it was very refreshing) "This high-tech spray uses heavy water to keep your skin hydrated all day. Use it pre-moisturizer, as an in-flight refresh, or to set makeup"

  • LAURA GELLER/ BAKED BLUSH N' BRIGHTEN IN COMO Highlighter in Portofino 0.32 OZ RETAILS FOR $29.50 (THEY SENT THE FULL SIZE PRODUCT! THE COLORS ARE GORGEOUS) "Made in Italy, this swirl of warm and cool tones is infinitely versatile-dust your cheeks for a flattering flush or use the lighter shades as a highlighter"
  • BONUS! DEBORAH LIPPMANN/ STRIPPER TO GO NAIL LACQUER REMOVERS 10 MITTS RETAILS FOR $12 "Fix your mani on the fly! Each handy packet contains a remover soaked "mitt" that erases polish without drying out nails"

  I could not be happier with my first months box and I'm already looking forward to seeing what July's box has to offer! I got a full size Laura Geller product that retails for $29.50 and I only paid ten bucks for the box. Great fun, its like your birthday every month. Go check them out.
These are perfect as I will be going on vacation starting this Wednesday and will be back after the Fouth of July. I will try to update once a week with a review of each of the products.
