I completely forgot to update my shipping address in my Birchbox account, and so my box is delayed because it needed to be forwarded from my former address. Since mine is late, I couldn’t help but peek inside…
I’m definitely disappointed in this box. The only sample I’m excited about it the one I picked for sample choice. Here’s what I’ll be receiving this month…
Coola SPF 50 Sport — Mango
This was originally one of the sample choice options I was excited about, but since then I’ve ordered the Sephora Favorites Sun Safety Kit and I have more than enough sunscreen to see me through summer. I’ll definitely use this, I’m just a little bummed it’s not something else.
Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
This was my sample choice for June, and I am so excited to try it out!
Temple Spa Good Hair Day Shampoo & Temple Spa In Good Condition Conditioner
I really don’t like getting shampoo and conditioner. I have so many travel-sized ones from hotels, plus a favorite brand of each already for when I’m at home. At least these look like really nice products — maybe I will like them. But I’m definitely bummed that TWO sample spots are being taken up by items I don’t need or want.
L. Erickson Narrow Grab and Go Pony
This is a lifestyle extra. I’m fine with receiving it, since I can always do with more hairties, but it’s not something I’m excited about.
Marcelle Mini Waterproof Eyeliner
This is what I’m most disappointed about. Every box was supposed to contain a new Eyeko liquid liner. While I was initially bummed about that announcement, since I don’t wear very much eyeliner, at least I LIKE liquid liner pens. But the Eyeko pens apparently got held up in customs and so no one will be receiving them this month. I don’t like pencil liners, and so this is a really inadequate substitute for something that I’d managed to make myself moderately excited about over the past few weeks.

So, on first glance, my box looks like a disappointment. You can never know until it actually arrives and you start trying the samples, though, so I’m hoping my opinion will change!
What will you be receiving in your June Birchbox? Do you have any opinions on my samples?
