Ever heard of Birchbox? Gift-Away! CLOSED!

I've been using Birchbox (a monthly sample delivery service) for the past three months and I absolutely love it. I saw/read a lot of reviews on YouTube and on other blogs and had to give it a try. Every month I get to try different skincare, fragrance, makeup, and other miscellany that I would never have the opportunity to try on my own; the price, $10. Every month, the new box ships by the 10th and I have it in hand within 5-7 days. I've generally enjoyed everything that I have received with the exception of a few oddball items, but isn't that how it always is?
Here is what came in my June Birchbox:

Here's what it looks like with the top off
