Sev­er­al Beau­ty Sub­scrip­tion Box­es for June have come to our doorsteps with fan­tas­tic themes and focus­es. With Sum­mer now here, how will these sub­scrip­tions dif­fer and what do they offer?

Birch­box

Birch­box Born In The USA June 2020. RRP £112.00

First up, the OG of sub­scrip­tion box­es, Birch­box. These small pack­ages always sur­prise with delight, this month is no dif­fer­ent. June’s Birch­box is explor­ing prod­ucts from their home coun­try, the USA. Our top prod­uct in this June Birch­box is Magnitone’s Wipe­Out! — an eco-friend­ly 100% bam­boo microfi­bre cleans­ing cloth to remove your make up with just water. Not only is it reusable, Birch­box have sup­plied you with two! 

In addi­tion to fab­u­lous prod­ucts in their Born In The USA box, Birch­box didn’t shy away from the cur­rent polit­i­cal cli­mate, and right­ly addressed the unfor­tu­nate death of George Floyd. Pro­vid­ed in the box was a slip with details of char­i­ties to donate to the George Floyd GoFundMe page. In addi­tion to dona­tions, Birch­box also pro­vides infor­ma­tion on peti­tions for Jus­tice for George Floyd and a read­ing list to research top­ics on racism and white fragili­ty.

Cohort­ed

Cohort­ed June 2020 — This Works. RRP: £97.50

A month­ly edit that is always excit­ing is Cohort­ed! This beau­ty sub­scrip­tion always have very strong themes in addi­tion to sur­pris­es. Nat­u­ral­ly one can say that Cohort­ed is a month­ly show stop­per — nev­er fails to impress. This month Cohort­ed have teamed up with This Works, a brand that offers you ‘24HR Skin Solu­tions’ — what we all need. Inter­est­ing­ly, Cohort­ed has boost­ed it’s lux­u­ry expe­ri­ence with This Works as the beau­ty brand offers more just skin­care, it offers well­ness and mood enhanc­ing; espe­cial­ly with the Deep Sleep Pil­low Spray. OVERDUE’s favourite prod­ucts in this edit are the 24HR CBD Boost­ers Range, we have explored Can­nibidoil before and we believe in the CBD’s abil­i­ty to main­tain bal­ance in both our bod­ies and mind. The 24HR CBD Boost­er Range in Cohorted’s June Edit includes the Evening Detox + AHA Com­plex and My Wrin­kles + Gran­ac­tive Retinoid.

Look­Fan­tas­tic

Look­Fan­tas­tic June 2020 ‘Stay­ca­tion’ Edi­tion Beau­ty Box. RRP £49.94

This month’s Look­Fan­tas­tic Beau­ty Edit is quite a spe­cial fea­ture; instead of receiv­ing a coloured box, cus­tomers received a a per­fect sum­mer beau­ty bag for trav­el with essen­tials. A delight­ful sur­prise was Molton Brown, a British lux­u­ry fra­grance and per­son­al care brand — favourite for many. Look­Fan­tas­tic trans­port­ed me to a coast with hot sun­shine with Molton Brown’s Coastal Cypress and Sea Fen­nel Show­er Gel. Over­all, this was a very well though edit, with the essen­tials need­ed when on hol­i­day such as Glov’s Hair Brush which is very com­pact and per­fect to detan­gle one’s hair. Most impor­tant­ly, they didn’t for­get the essen­tial when trav­el­ling — SPF! Includ­ed is Polaar’s SPF 50 Sun Lotion and and UltraSun’s SPF 30 Lip Care. You’re all set and ready to enjoy the sun!
