Guess what? Even this post is up super late today I am super proud of myself for posting my June Birchbox in the month of June!! YAY!!! #Accomplished
It’s pretty, right? I love the boxes themselves each month, they are always really pretty and have thought of about a million different things to do with them but I usually just wind up giving them to people. I like to put presents in them and wrap them up. Definitely a surprise when it gets opened!!
Anyway, enough with the box and on to the goodies!!
I got a lot of facial stuff this month…a BB Cream, a sunscreen, and a skin serum. And a Laura Gellar product I have been wanting to try AND the new Benefit GIMME BROW. I have been a huge fan of Benefit brow products for a while now and was pumped when I found out this was going to be in my box. I love getting to try things before they launch!!

As much as I love my Birchbox and getting to try awesome products each month I’m afraid my subscription may be coming to an end soon. Birchbox recently changed their points system and I don’t care for the changes. I am also a little overrun with samples right now and so I think a break will be a good thing. I am still getting my July box so definitely look for a review of that box and what I decided to do with all of my accumulated points!!
And now onto my first impression of my Conture System!!
I have been mildly freaking out about the fine lines around my eyes and was super pumped when I was contacted by the Conture people to try this fantastic product!! I had never heard of it before then but have since read a lot about it and have been using it and can’t wait to share a full blog post on it! Until then you get my first impression.
First of all Conture is a Kinetic Skin toning System that utilizes Isometric Compression combined with Low Frequency Vibrations to gently stimulate and tone skin for a more youthful looking appearance. It is supposed to be used daily on your problem areas and the effects are similar to a deep massage.
On first glance I was surprised by how small it was. It’s for use on your entire face and neck but the head is really small so that threw me for a minute. But then after reading the directions (3-5 pulses per area) I saw that it was totally doable for the whole face.
I have used my Conture daily for a few weeks around my eyes and am starting to be able to tell a difference. So there than my surprise at the size of the Conture wand I really like it so far.
Sorry if this “first impression” sounds kind of vague but I don’t want to give away my review whole post! HAHAHA!! But really thug all you should know is that I really like it and can’t wait to use for a little while longer and share the whole review with you!!
I did receive my Conture kit for free but that did not, in any way, influence my opinion of this product.

I haven’t signed up for Birchbox yet. Thank you for sharing and telling us about the wonderful products you receive each month. I might no longer need much convincing. I think Birchbox would be a great subscription box. I can even share some of the stuff to my mom and daughter!
This looks like a great Birchbox for June! The products look great. I love BB cream.
That looks like a great box! I love getting these types of boxes in the mail. That Conture system looks awesome! I would love to try that out.
Those look like awesome products. I used to be a subscription box addict, until I had so many samples. I have heard about the center, too, and I would love to try it, especially after reading this post.
These look like such awesome products! I love the Gimme Brow – it’s so great! These are all perfect for summer time – I need to try out the BirchBox, haven’t tried this one yet!

I was thinking of getting my Daughter a Birchbox subscription box for her birthday. They have great products and it is a great gift that gives all year long.

It has been ages since I’ve ordered from Birchbox, but I definitely need to get another subscription going someday soon! I love trying out different beauty products.

I love the design on the Birchbox boxes. I would be reusing those boxes as well. I haven’t tried their subscription services yet but have been wanting to look into them.
