June Bloom Ambassador Box Review

June Bloom Ambassador Box Review

I know most of my posts are based on nail polish, but the original intent for this blog was for cosmetics, skin care, hair care, etc review.  A little bit of everything!  But I will admit, after working all day – coming home and doing makeup looks to photograph just isn’t in the cards!   I became a Bloom Ambassador last month and not only was the box I received wonderful but it also allows me time to review a group of products for skin, cosmetics, fragrance, etc in one shot!

I have a few products to review for this so I’m going to get this started!

The first set of goodies I received was for Pacifica.  I got 6 Pacifica products and holy cow were these amazing!  Just opening the cute golden box they were nestled in was like heaven, the scent greeted me and lingered around without being nauseating.

Lets take a closer look at the 6 products:

Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume Roll-On:

Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume Roll On is described as being inspired by the unique magic of Tahitian vanilla, this sensual blend sets sweet and sultry vanilla absolute, with honey-jasmine notes and a touch of fruitiness, against a deep and beautiful base of tea.  Wow, this is a lovely vanilla scent without being overpowering, too sweet or fake smelling.  I do love vanilla, but I am so sick of the fake vanilla scent.  I plan on purchasing the larger spray version of Pacifica Island Vanilla.  The roll-on is perfect to carry around in my purse (which I’ve been doing all week and was complimented on it multiple times!). Each Roll-on retails for $12.00

Pacifica Color Quench Natural Moisture Lip Tint:

I received 2 different Color Quenches this month.  One in Blood Orange and one in Coconut Nectar.  Pacifica Color Quench Natural Moisture Lip Tints are all natural, 100% Vegan and leave a sheer hint of color.   Essential fatty acids from rich and amazing avocado and coconut oils leave lips luscious and healthy.  Blood Orange colors your lips a sheer coral with a pop of pink while Coconut Nectar is a shimmery golden raisin color.  Out of the two, Blood Orange is my favorite, but Coconut Nectar is perfect for those “no makeup, makeup looks”. Each color Quench retails for $9.00.

Pacifica Body Butter:

Did I say this box for June was amazing?  I’m sitting here with all these aromas from the Pacifica box and I’m still thrilled!  Ok I also got 2 Pacifica Body Butters to review, one in Tuscan Blood Orange and one in Indian Coconut Nectar.  Smell incredible with nourishing and anti-oxidant rich ingredients.  Pacifica body butter helps fight signs of aging while adding deep moisture and protection.

  • Tuscan Blood Orange is described as a delectable blend, juicy and spicy Blood Orange is offset with subtle Strawberry and Raspberry notes and grounded in fleshy Mandarin and Italian Sweet Orange.  An orange connoisseur’s dream.
  • Pacifica’s Indian Coconut Nectar is a sensuous and delicious blend inspired by travels to faraway destinations. This warm, sultry blend of coconut and delicate creamy vanilla is pure ambrosia.

So hard to choose a favorite in these 2!  What I really love about Pacifica Body Butter is that I applied these after my shower and the scent wasn’t overpowering AT ALL.  The scent lingered around but was delicate.  If you aren’t one for perfumes much, this is perfect to apply and go.  The scent was longer lasting than most I have used and doubled as fragrance for the day as well. Each 2.5 fl oz tube of Pacifica Body Butter retails for $7.00

Pacifica Bronzing Body Butter:

Ok so this was my only “meh” product from the Pacifica box.  Not because the product is bad, it just isn’t something I use.  I’m not one for bronzing products at all.  BUT if you are looking for a body butter and bronzer with a light scent, this product is for you.    The bronzing body butter I received was in Coconut Crushed Pearl and when I put it on, my boyfriend said “What smells like cotton candy?”  and he was right.  While I didn’t hate the scent, I don’t think it’s made for me.  Maybe I’m an “old” 30 year old, but I am not one for the “which carnival scent am I wearing today?” type. Each 8oz tube of Pacifica Bronzing Body Butter retails for $24.00

That will conclude the Pacifica Reviews!  Now moving onto the next item!

Booty Parlor Flirty Little Secret Firming Bronzer:

Ok again, not a bronzer person.  Although this one wasn’t too bad and was easy to blend in, I don’t have a lot of use for it.  It also left a faint shimmer that makes you almost glow in the sun. Create glow-getter curve appeal with this lightly shimmering, jasmine tea scented firming body bronzer that’s infused with a sexy secret weapon: a powerful pheromone designed to make you irresistible!  The scent is dead on too – just like jasmine tea.  I did use this a few times to fulfill my duty, but sadly, I don’t think I will wear it much more.  Again, not a bad product, just not a bronzing person.

Almost done!  I promise!

Stila In the Moment Eye Shadow Palette:

This palette includes:

Instinct – light baby pink with pink & white shimmer

Desire – soft, creamy mid-tone pink

Impulse – pale lavender with lavender shimmer

Wonder – mid-tone flesh pink with shimmer

Glance – intense violet with shimmer

Spontaneous – soft beige-gold with shimmer

Improvise – deep plum with pink sparkle

Whim – soft warm reddish-brown with shimmer

Catalyst – black with pink sparkle

Captivate – mid-tone purple-brown with golden pearl

Stila is a brand I love and trust beauty wise.  Their eyeshadows are long lasting, well pigmented and easy to blend.  Stila In the Moment Eye Shadow Palette is amazing!  Within one palette you can create sexy, sultry or even neutral eye looks.  I’m also a sucker for purples, so of course I love this one.  The palette comes with 10 colors and endless possibilities.

 For my look pictured I used:  Instinct all over the lid up to the brow bone, Impulse in the inner crease, Glance in the outter crease and Catalyst wet as eyeliner!

Stila In the Moment Eye Shadow Palette retails for $39.00

Stila In the Garden Eye Shadow Palette:

This Palette Includes:

Chinois – matte creamy white

Breeze – shimmery beige

Bark – shimmery taupe

Freesia – shimmery violet blu

eRosette – metallic pink violet

Nectar – matte creamy beige

Honey – metallic bronze gold

Sage – shimmery translucent green

Moss – dark olive green with shimmer

Juniper – deep shimmery forest green

Stila In The Garden Eye Shadow Palette is another amazing 10 color shadow palette but it comes with more neutral colors than anything.  I do love it, but I think the In The Moment Palette was more for me!  I do love the color Sage within the palette though, gorgeous shimmery sage green.

Stila In the Garden Eye Shadow Palette retails for $39.00

Last one!  Thank you for hanging in there, I know this is long!

Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths:

Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths have a lot of positive attributes:

100% biodegradable

Paraben Free

Sulfate Free

Alcohol Free

Synthetic Fragrance Free

Tree Free Cloths

As much as I love makeup, I also love good makeup removers.  The problem is, with skin as finicky as mine, it is sometimes hard to find removers I like.  Juicy Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths removed my makeup easily and flawlessly, including my mascara (the mascara is the real test and it took it off easily!).  BUT I had a couple small breakout after using them, which made me very self conscious about doing the Stila reviews using looks… which is why there is JUST an eye pic and not a full face picture.   After the first sign of break out, I used the rest of the cloths just to see if my skin was purging and would stop, but it didn’t.  I have heard rave things about these cloths, but really – they didn’t work with my skin.

 Alright, that concludes my June Bloom Ambassador box!  Lots of exciting things right?  Of everything, the Pacifica goodies blew me away!  A lot of the products were amazing, and some just didn’t work for me (which happens!)

You really should check out Bloom.com for some amazing beauty finds and REAL reviews!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I know you said “carnival” but in my head all I heard was “circus….afro….circus…afro” LOL! Great reviews and I’m sorry some didn’t work out for you. I’d have loved to see the sage.
