contents of June UK Birchbox

A few days ago I received my June Birchbox, which was actually a 'Birchtin'- a beautiful blue and white flowery tin, a nod to the British tea party in celebration of Birchbox's 5th birthday in the UK. I love storage in general, storage that looks great is even better, so a huge first tickpoint for this birchbox.

The second thing I noticed when I opened the tin was the smell... that turned out to be 3 different tea blends from Whittard of Chelsea. If that was one of the 5 sample products I would have been slightly disappointed but there's 6, so it's a nice little extra. So, on to the actual products...

BalanceMe Pure Skin Face Wash

I'm actually really excited to try this, i've been running low on a number of my face washes and i've tried a couple of BalanceMe products before and really liked them. I've also been having a bad skin month, possibly due to the hot weather we've had in Britain, so i'm interested to see if this helps. RRP= £16

Polaar Velvety Sun Fluid Face & Body

A new SPF is always good to try in the summer, especially for the face. I always struggle to find one that drys quickly, isn't greasy, has great protection and doesn't break me out, so i'm interested to see how this fairs. RRP= £25

Number 4 Jour d'automne Smoothing Balm

Never heard a scooby about this brand before. The first thing I noticed was how similar the packaging is to The Ordinary. This claims to smooth and tame frizzy, unruly hair and i'm all about that. RRP= £24.50

Ella Eden Eyeshadow- Faith

This is the one full size product in this months birchbox. It's a pressed mineral eyeshadow and there was a choice of two shades. Of course I chose the bronze shade, i'm a sucker for a bronze eyeshadow. Definitely excited to put this to the test against my other favourite bronze eyeshadows. AKA- my bronze eyeshadow showdown post from 2015?!! RRP= £12.99

Benefit Porefessional Pearl Primer

The final product is a cute little sample of porefessional pearl primer. I've not tried this before and i'm interested to see how it differs from the original porefessional. I'm always on the look out for new primers, so this is handy. RRP= £27.50

Overall, i'm fairly impressed with this months box. I'm not blown away by it on first impressions but i'm hoping the products might blow me away. The major plus point for me is the tin- definitely going to be keeping it!

What did you think to your Birchbox?
