Birchbox Canada June 2015 Unboxing & Review

Hello readers,
My June Birchbox arrived in the mail... amazingly fast this month I must say... so I thought I'd share what I got with you.  This month the spoiler was an Eyeko eyeliner.  Apparently that got stuck in customs so no one got it.  I wasn't overly upset about this as I only found out about after we found out we weren't getting it and I already have tons of eyeliners.


Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo | Full-size $36-$82
I got the hydrating shampoo from this brand a couple months ago from Birchbox.  It was good shampoo so I'll definitely use this up.  For that price though I don't see myself purchasing the full size.  Based on the $36 bottle this sample is worth $4.24.

PARLOR by Jeff Chastian Moisurizing Sea Salt Spray | Full-size $27
This isn't a really a product for me.  My hair already has enough unwanted texture, so I don't want to add more.  I do know other people were looking forward to this sample though so I'm sure I'll be able to swap it for something that better fits my style.  Based on the full size price this sample is worth $5.51.

Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer | Full-size $45
I'm always up for trying a new face cream so this is good sample for me.  This sample is worth $18.

Skyn Iceland Hydro Firming Eye Gels | Full-size $33
Puffy eyes and dark under eye circles aren't an issue for me so this sample is a miss.  However, I have already arranged to swap it so it won't go to waste.  This single set of eye gels is worth $4.13.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator | Full-size $32
This is the sample I was most looking forward to since I am a sucker for highlighters.  It's pretty tiny but highlighter goes a long way.  Based on the full size this tube is worth $11.64.

Bonus: Pura Vida Lace Headband with Charm | Set of 8 $18
I'm really glad this came in a cute dusty blue colour after I saw camo print in the preview.  It's always nice to have extra headbands around.  The value of this bonus item is $2.25.

Conclusion
The total value of this month's box was $45.77 which is way more than the $14.95 I paid including shipping.  I'll use the majority of the samples and the couple that aren't for me will be great for swaps.  We also got a code to enter into a contest with a guaranteed prize for everyone.  I ended up getting a 10% off a $50+ purchase in the Birchbox store.  If you want to find out more check out the Birchbox Canada website.  Don't forget to review your box items for an extra $5 in birchbox points.

Happy polishing,

Michelle
