June has officially been behind us for a while and we have entered into the height of Summer, but before we dive right into the month of July which is quickly approaching on a new month I thought I would do a post featuring all the beauty subscriptions of June, so let’s get things started with my June 2016 Beauty Subscriptions Roundup Edition.
Full size $16.00
The first product that is going to help kick off my June 2016 Beauty Subscriptions Round Up Edition is a product that is a bit pricey when thinking of a typical shaving cream, but in my opinion is well worth the beauty splurge, and it’s the Whish Shave Cream with vitamin K and Rice Milk. Now this is the first time that I have received this particular one, but I have received Whish’s Blueberry scented shave cream which smells divine, and the pomegranate and both are amazing at keeping my legs looking and feeling smooth after each shaving session. What I like about the Whish Shaving Cream line is that each shaving cream is formulated with ultra hydrating ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and other moisturizing ingredients. I have tried this sample, and it has the same creamy consistency as other Whish shaving creams, but this one is a little different from the others in the sense that the scent is not candy-like, but more fresh garden soap like, which depending upon one’s mood can be very nice to start the day off with when one needs a break from those sweet-scented skin care products.Modster | Smooth Ride SuperCharged Eyeliner Ardency Inn
Full size $ 19.oo
It’s definitely not a surprise to see one of these products making an appearance in a beauty box subscription, but as subscribers we have caught onto the idea by now and are assured that we are going to receive in pretty much every month’s box either an eyeliner or a mascara, and if you are subscribed to multiple subscriptions you will probably receive both. This time around Birchbox threw into the mix an eyeliner from a brand that I have not tried before by Modster.The quality in my opinion is great. The color is a true carbon black that goes on smooth like silk, and the staying power is shockingly good.Dr. Jart + | Every Sun Day UV Sun Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Full size $34.00
The next product is a Birchbox sample brand repeat offender and it’s the brand Dr. Jart+, but it’s a good thing that I actually like the brand Dr. Jart + because it would be a little awkward. The sample that I received in my June 2016 Birchbox was Dr. Jart’s + Every Sun Day UV Sun Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 30. One thing I must say is that Birchbox is really looking out for their subscribers by making sure we received a great deal of sun protection products this summer, and I am not complaining. So what’s up with this sunscreen, what makes this one so different from other sunscreens on the market, and after a little research this is what I have found. Dr. Jart + Every Sun Day UV Sun Fluid Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is formulated to not only provide top quality sun protection, but it also shields the wearer from fine dust by creating a protective skin barrier. This sunscreen is also formulated with Seaweed Extract and Cypress and these two ingredients are known to purify, moisturize as well as soothes one’s skin.Oribe | Supershine Moisturizing Cream
Let me first just start off by saying that this moisturizing hair conditioning cream smells amazing, and the scent alone has me seriously hooked on this product. The question at hand is what does Oribe Supershine Moistiurizing Cream have to offer the potential consumer besides from smelling divine, well it works to provide one’s hair with a serious boost of hydration for those times when your hair looks totally fried and like there is no hope for your hair. Oribe Supershine leave-in conditioner smooths one’s locks, leaves hair with a salon shine finish and works nicely for taming those pesky fly aways.Kiehl’s | Precision Lifting + Pore-Tightening Concentrate
Full size $64.00
Kiehl’s Precision Lifting and Pore Tightening Concentrate is all about lending a hand to skin that has loss a little elasticity over the years by helping to potentially restore the skin by firming it. This is a serum that works to re-define facial contour,tightens as well as reduces the appearance of pores, wrinkles and fine lines.
Full size $20.00 | Pore Original Pack and $26.00 Blackhead O2 Bubble Pore Pack
The Pore Original Pack by the brand Caolion is a mask that works to give one a gentle cleansing experience for their skin, and at the same time works to exfoliate, remove impurities and minimizes the appearance of pores over time, but this mask takes cleansing one’s skin a step further by helping to restore elasticity, and provides the skin with a boost of moisture and works to control excess oil. The next Caolion product I received was the Blackhead O2 Bubble Pore Pack, and this mask is all about detoxifying. Caolion Blackhead O2 Bubble Pore Pack mask is a purifying oxygen and active charcoal mask, that works to provide skin with a deep thorough cleanse by removing blackheads, whiteheads and trapped dirt. LaSplash Cosmetics | Lipgloss
Full size $18.00
The next product that will take the spotlight in my June 2016 Beauty Subscriptions Roundup Edition is from a brand that I have received in previous Glossyboxes, and its the brand LaSplash. The item I received is their red carpet ready lip gloss in the color Red Carpet. First this lip gloss smells just like a red candy apple, and the color is very intense and long-lasting. The consistency is a tad heavy I think, but still very wearable.Sebastian Professionals | Dark Oil
Full size $48.00
Sebastian Professionals Dark Oil is a styling oil that provides one’s hair with a salon shine finish, that is sure to spark a little hair envy. Dark Oil works to smooth one’s hair, and provides up to forty-eight hours of control and body. This hair care oil also works to replenish one’s hair from within the hair cuticle and adds body. What’s interesting about Sebastian Professionals Dark Oil is, that even though it feels like an oil it leaves no trace of the oil behind just good-looking hair. Dark Oil also works to protect one’s hair from UV damage, and contains hair loving ingredients such as argan oil, sandalwood and cederwood.TanTowel | Self-Tan Towelette
No red carpet event would be complete without skin that looks radiant and delivers a healthy glow. Okay maybe you are not attending a red carpet event, but you still want to feel and look like over a million dollars, and as many know already the sun keeps us warm, lights things up for us and most of all provides some vitamin D and glowing skin that yeah one will look amazing, but the end results are anything but sexy they are harmful. So when a product comes along that can promise us skin that looks sun-kissed without the harmful UV rays we take notice, and this item is by the company TanTowel, and they have been around for quite a while. TanTowel Self-Tan Towelettes are suitable for both the body as well as the face.Icona Milano | Mascara
Full size $19.00
Emotion Allowed is a mascara created by the brand Icona Milano. This mascara is a waterproof, humidity resistant, and sweat proof mascara for the active, fast paced modern lady of today. Designed for the one that does not have the time to slow down for to reapply their mascara, or worry about being stuck with the appearance of racoon eyes or a look of I just join fight club. This mascara is all about providing the wearer with rich, bold intense color and eye lashes that reaches new heights of volume. Sebastian Professionals | Whipped Creme Light Conditioning Style Whip
Full size $19.99
Sebastian Professionals Whipped Creme Light Conditioning Style Whip is an ultra light, protein- rich styling cream that is promising to provide definition for curly and wavy hair by nourishing hair. This is a mouse formula that is airy light. Sinful Colors Professionals | Kylie Denim and Bling Matte Nail Polish in the color Acid Wash
Full size $2.99
And to wrap up the June 2016 Glossybox a nail polish was included by Kylie Jenner for Sinful Colors Professionals from her Denium and Bling Matte Nail Polish collection. The color that was included in my box was a shimmering ocean pearl baby blue named Acid Wash. I have not tried this polish yet, but the color is a fun color that fits right in with the summer. The color Acid Wash has a burst of fine silver glitter undertone definitely not a color for the tame unless you want to venture into the wild side.
Full size $5.00
Okay I know that this eye liner is $5.00, but the quality is beyond excellent. The consistency is buttery and goes on ultra silky and stays put. The color I received is a true black, and is named Swerve. I really like that this is a retractable creme gel liner where it eliminates the need for a mid application re-sharpening, you know those times when you are almost done applying your eyeliner and then snap the pencil breaks, and you have to start all over again. Urban Decay | Eyeshadow in Lounge
Full size $19.00
The next product that was featured in my June 2016 Ipsy Bag is from the very notable brand Urban Decay. I received one of the most beautiful eyeshadow’s ever, and its a moon dust, shimmering green mixed with a stunning crushed velvet wine purple color, and it’s the Urban Decay Eyeshadow in the color Lounge. The consistency is perfect where it goes on professionally, does not fall into one’s creases and it delivers a stunning makeup look. Definitely a beauty must have in my opinion. Frank Body | Orignal Coffee Body Scrub
Full size $14.95
I have heard a great deal about the beauty skin care line by Frank, and I am happy to be sampling their famous coffee scrub. This scrub is all about exfoliating one’s skin, but takes it a step further and does it with coffee, which helps with sloughing away dead flakey skin to reveal skin that is glowing. This scrub is also great for circulation and may help overtime to reduce the appearance of cellulite, acne and stretch marks. Frank’s Original Coffee Body Scrub features ingredients that include Cold-Pressed Sweet Almond Oil, Sea Salt, Vitamin E and of course the main attraction of the show Roasted and ground Robusta Coffee Beans. Frank is an Australian based brand.
Full size $23.00
I have heard of the brand Elizabeth Mott before, but this was the first time I had the opportunity to try her fabulous summer inspired blush. I love the color Peach Pink, it’s a summer peachy beach color that gives a subtle touch of color with a beach glow. The color Peach Pink is truly a natural color blush that can be very buildable. Hey Honey | 24 Seven Honey Day + Night Moisturizing Creme
Full size $38.00
The product that topped off my June 2016 Ipsy Bag was the Hey Honey 24 Seven Honey Day and Night Moisturizing Creme. This is an all around moisturizer that can be used on the face, around the eyes and neck to moisturize skin that is overly dry, which is a breeding grown for wrinkles. This moisturizer works to prevent and alleviate dryness, which can lead to premature aging signs. The brand states that their moisturizer is suitable for all skin types.
Well June was month two of my subscription adventure with Sephora’s beauty subscription Play, and I have been enjoying the ride. The samples are all amazing brands that we either love or have heard of, or have been coveting the chance to try. Sephora’s Play subscription puts all the fun at your door to explore, so let’s have a look at what they delivered in my June bag.Becca | Backlight Priming Filter
Full size $38.00
The first product is by the brand Becca and it’s their Backlight Priming Filter. I love how silky this primer goes on, and doesn’t leave any trace of a primer behind just skin that is smooth and radiant. Becca’s Backlight Priming Filter is described as a shimmering makeup primer, but it’s not an excessive shimmering primer. It gives a very faint golden shimmer in a sophisticated way, and is formulated to provide the wearer with an appearance of a soft-focus filter look, that renders results that blurs those pesky imperfections and delivers a radiant luminous finish. An added bonus it smells great a slight hint of floral with a little sweetness the perfect combo.Tarte | TarteGuard 30 Sunscreen
Full size $32.00
The next product to take center stage in my June 2016 Beauty Subscriptions Roundup Edition is from another brand fave of mine, and the item is TarteGuard 30 Sunscreen by the brand Tarte. This sunscreen is a little more special than the average sunscreen in a way that it is formulated with antioxidants, and is free of some of those harmful chemicals that sometimes makes its way into some sunscreens in the consumer market. TarteGuard works to provide the wearer with skin that is hydrated, and that is ready to grace the sun without any sticky residue left behind just radiant skin that is sun-protected. The consistency is extremely light, and has left my skin feeling silky soft and very hydrated.Benefit | They’re Real Mascara
Full size $24.00
And here we go again another mascara has made its way into another beauty subscription box, but it is so okay, because it’s from one of my favorite brands Benefit Cosmetics, and it’s the They’re Real Mascara which I love. I am sure that by now everyone has either tried this mascara or has heard of it. I am a fan follower of this particular one, because it does amplifies ones lashes, and the color is intense. This is definitely a must try mascara in my opinion, and it’s one I keep around.
Full size value $ 31.00
Bumble and Bumble Bb Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler is a creme that is all about adding body to one’s hair, it also helps with enhancing finer to medium hair textures and delivers a more relaxed laid-back air-dried style.

Bare Minerals BareSkin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer is just that a sheer liquid bronzer that can be worn alone or used to intensify your favorite foundation by adding a few drops in. This bronzer has been formulated in a way where there is no sticky residue or product left behind just a radiant sun glow complexion for the user.Tocca | Florence Eau de Parfum
Full size value $68.00
And what beauty sample subscription would be complete without the appearance of some sort of fragrance, and for the month of June the Play By Sephora bag featured a real good one by the brand Tocca, and it’s their Florence parfum. Florence was created with the idea of invoking the spirit of Paris, and the beauty and sophistication the city of love holds. The brand Tocca conjured up Florence with beautiful fragrance notes of bergamot, blonde wood, gardenia and pretty violet petals and it smells divine, and I am now a fan just ordered a bottle. The scent is very romantic and has a dominate and seductive scent that is fresh, very sweet, floral and feminine.
And that wraps up my June 2016 Beauty Subscriptions Roundup Edition.
