Birchbox June 2015 | French Sole


The June Birchbox highlights the start of summer and the box this month was sponsored by ‘French Sole’, which is a very lovely and expensive brand of shoes. The boxes this month were optional and I picked the nautical themed one, with navy blue and white strips and a red love heart in the middle. I love anything French so this style was perfect for me! 


There was a mix of products for this month..  

One if the main products inside this box is a shoe bag from French sole, I recently purchased a pair of Havana flip-flops and feel this bag will be perfect for keeping them in. The bag is exactly the same as the lid of the box, very pretty and chic and perfect for carrying my flip-flops. 

The box also contained some of the gold temporary tattoos, I have seen many people wear these for festivals this summer and I am really looking forward to wearing them when I go on holiday!

Next I received the Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash, it claims to be rich, hydrating and dry-skin friendly. This is a very good size sample and the largest of the products in the box. 

I also received the Iris Prima perfume from Penhaligon, I love these little perfume samples as I feel they are perfect for putting in your handbag and taking around with you. This perfume retails at £85, so is definitely the most expensive product in my box. The scent is very strong so you would only need a few sprays otherwise it could become overpowering. 

For haircare I had the HIP Shampoo it claims to be an ultra shine shampoo and states to transform your hair into happy, healthy hair. 

I also received the Yes To Cucumber facial wipes; I have always wanted to try some of the Yes To products and particularly the cucumber brand. 

The final thing in the box this month is a lip stain from Cynthia Rowley, I have heard a lot of good things about this brand so I am excited to test the product out. 

If I am being honest, I loved the style and theme for this box but feel slightly disappointed in the products I received. I always feel slightly annoyed when I receive a shampoo but no conditioner to match as I feel I cannot give it a full review without. However, I know that not every box will be brilliant so I will look forward to July’s box.


How was your Birchbox this month?
