June 2014 Birchbox: Travel Ready

Summer is for road-tripping, destination-hopping, and of course, staycation-ing!  (Or if you’re a traveling business professional, like me, it also means more work trips)  To keep us prepped and ready to go for our summer travels, Birchbox packed their June boxes with lots of travel-sized goodies.

 

1. Evologie Stay Clear Cleanser
2. Color Club Gala’s Gems Collection Polish
3. English Laundry Signature for Her Perfume
4. Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette Sampler
5. Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo
6. Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner
7. Davines Ol All In One Milk

This, ladies and gents, is everything I’ll need for my upcoming [and short] business trip in August.  Seriously!  I’m just going to stick my Birchbox in my luggage and that’ll be that.

*I’ve seen Evologie products on their website—for the ‘set,’ Evologie products are pricey!  I’m curious to see how I’ll like the cleanser.  I prefer light/fresh cleansers.  (I’m not a fan of heavy smelling/feeling cleansers)

*Color Club polishes and I are on…okay terms.  I like the colors and the finishes but I feel that they don’t last very long.  If I get the shade pictured in my preview, I’ll be stoked!  That’s exactly the color I was thinking about for a good, overall, summer shade.

*I just used my Davines trial shampoo/conditioner from a previous box—whoa nelly.  It lathered really well and my hair felt great afterwards….but it was perfumed a little too much for my taste.  (It was also a deep, musky scent and you know how I feel about those.)  Hopefully this scent is lighter!  The product description says to look for ‘indian fig.’  Ooh, that sounds much better already.

———-

Okay, scratch that.  I’ll need to add in a moisturizer and an SPF but other then that, this box is perfect for summer travels!  What did y’all get in your Birchboxes this month?  My new BB envy product is the Coola SPF moisturizer.  I swear I saw it in Michelle Phan’s ipsy boxes as well.  Currently, BB is doing a promo that if your $50+ order includes something from their SPF shop, they’ll add in an extra 50 points!  (Enter ‘hersummer50’ at checkout)

  1. Hi. Just ran into your blog while searching birchbox and Hawaii in google. I recently signed up for this subscription box and was wondering in general how long it takes for a box to get to you after it is marked shipped? My July box was shipped on the 23rd. I know on the webpage it says they take extra time when shipping to Hawaii. But I wanted a general idea of what to expect.

    Thanks.
