What am I thinking….

This box was a little whah, whah, whah….  I specified in my beauty profile that I do not want to receive fragrances.  I don’t hate the scent I got but I would have preferred a different product to sample. I must say that I was happy with the sample sizes in this box.  The shampoo and body lotion are very generous sample sizes and the eye shadow palette has four colors in it.  However, the conditioner and hair milk are foil packet samples and I hate those, especially if they are products you need to use in the shower.  The lotion and the shampoo smell ok but there’s nothing outstanding about them.  The true test will come into play when I actually try them out.  I am most excited about the eye shadow and the Vasanti Face Rejuvenator.  I still love Birchbox and enjoy trying new samples.  I just feel like this box was a little sub-par in comparison to my April and May boxes (which were AMAZING)! There’s always July’s box!
