Birchbox and Ipsy Glam Bag Reveal Day for June!

It's finally reveal day for Birchbox and Ipsy, usually Birchbox reveals on the 10th what you'll be getting in your box(es) if you're so inclined to spoil the surprise, but Ipsy changes the date almost always. This month Ipsy decided to reveal on the 10th, as well, which seemed strange, the 9th would have made more sense, but whatever.

This month I paired down my Birchboxes to only one, and I'm already missing my two other boxes! I may have to add one or two more this month, because I'm not thrilled with my box. I thought one of my alt accounts got some great boxes, so maybe I'll have to reopen that one at least.

June Birchbox Reveal:

I'm getting Box #18:

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator - I've heard such good things about this product and I've been wanting to try it, so I'm happy to get this in my box!

Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Body Lotion - Ugh, I have so much body lotion and I really don't need more especially one that is basically a hotel sample.

Davines OI / All in One Milk - This might be nice for my hair, I'll probably try it.

Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette Set - I am actually already planning on buying this palette when it's released on Birchbox, so I didn't really feel the need to sample it. But hey, at least I'll get a chance to see how Coastal Scents eyeshadows are since I've never tried them before.

Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris Fragrance - I've never liked a single fragrance Birchbox has sent me, so I don't expect anything different from this one.

Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner - I do need shampoo and conditioner, so maybe I'll like this one.

June Ipsy Reveal:

Be a Bombshell Lash Out Mascara - I really don't need more black mascara, but I may save this for a rainy day when I finally run out.

Marc Anthony Dream Waves Beach Spray - Ehh this might be nice, I'll have to see what it can do for my really fine straight hair.

NYX Butter Gloss - Looking at other people who have received this same bag on Instagram, I really can't tell what color I'll be getting. It doesn't really matter anyways I'll use whichever one I get.

Jesse's Girl Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner - I actually don't have a waterproof eyeliner, so it might be nice to have for just a simple eyeliner look this summer. Not that I go swimming often, but hey I'll probably use it.

OLEHENRIKSEN truth to go wipes - I'm running low on my makeup remover wipes, so this is just in time!

What products are you getting this month? Anything you're particularly excited (or unexcited) to try? Let me know in the comments!

Birchbox is only $10 a month and they send you 5-7 (usually sample size) products. They have a great points rewards system where you can review your box contents every month, and get points that can be redeemed on the store. 100 points = $10 to spend on the Birchbox store!

Ipsy Glam Bag is $10 a month. They include 4-5 beauty products each month along with a cosmetic bag to carry all your goods in! If you haven't yet you can subscribe here, and skip the wait list!

  1. It looks like whatever tweaking you did to your ipsy profile after last month worked! We're not bag twins anymore and you got my dream bag this month of the variations I've seen.

    Be careful with the Vasanti Brightenup! I got it a few months ago and never have I ever wanted to spend $34 on an exfoliating scrub as I did when my sample of this ran out. In fact, I like it so much that I resisted the mermaid box in order to save my points for it (and the no. 4 shampoo from last month).

    1. Yeah, I'm more pleased with my Ipsy bag this month, and it's definitely one of the better variations! And I have heard so many raving reviews about that Vasanti I'll have to use it sparingly! Which bag variation did you get?

    2. For ipsy , I'm getting the variation with the mascara, beach spray, ofra, nyx (of course), and realtree (boo). It seems like a common variation. I'm happy with it besides the perfume, but I'm afraid if I rate perfumes badly, I'll miss out on all the demeter.

      I think my BB variations (I forgot to cancel the 2nd bag I opened for the necklace before the 1st) were 12 and 21. Not bad. And they left out the conditioner, all in one milk and hp hello (all on the card) and sent me a coastal scents sample (yay!) And a folle de joie sample instead.

    3. Yeah I don't want any of the other perfume they send except Pacifica or Demeter! So I'm glad I dodged the Realtree perfume! What a weird Birchbox mixup! But at least it worked out! I've heard good things about the Folle de Joie, I wish they sent me some!

  2. Your BB isn't toooo bad, plus 70 points!!

    1. Yeah it's not my worst! I am definitely missing my other two boxes though, I am so tempted to resubscribe on my other accounts!

  3. Definitely sad to see that you may be canceling Ipsy soon... Your blog is my go-to blog on everything Ipsy and Julep! I'd never know what the heck products are in the Ipsy spoilers if it weren't for you ;p

    This month I got the NYX gloss, Nicka K eyeliner, Skinn cleanser, Marc Anthony spray, and the Laneige BB cushion. Really excited about the NYX, cleanser, and Marc Anthony spray and I have -zero- clue what that Laneige thing is. Hopefully I can use it more than once. -_- The only thing I didn't get but wanted was the Clarisea exfoliant, even though I've gotten exfoliants from Ipsy in the last two bags. But I'll probably just purchase it anyway since it's not a bad price with the discount. I think I just want an exfoliant arsenal hahaha. And can I just say, I'm really loving the designs of the bags last month and this month!

    1. Aww thanks! Well even if I do cancel I can still do spoilers! The Nicka K eyeliner looks so pretty and I hear the Marc Anthony spray smells wonderful. I agree, I love the last two bags!

  4. your lucky u got the best boxes!

  5. I have 2 Coastal Scents big palettes and I really like them. The colors are well pigmented and they last.

  6. I received the same Birchbox as you and am so excited for the Vasanti. I am irritated with the Davines Love hair products. Sounds like it's for thick, frizzy hair. My hair is oily and thin. My profile reflects that. Not sure why I received these. :/

    1. Yeah my hair isn't either of those either, but it smells good! I'll still use it!
