Review: Birchbox for Jet Setting

With June being a vacation seeking month, this Birchbox was devoted to the jet setter.
So far I really like this month's box, but just like others before it, I have a few things I'm just not excited to receive. 

Eyeko | Fay Eye Stick - Although I like where they are going with this, I don't think I'll be smudging my beloved eyeliner any time soon. I'm going to try my best to use this on my waterline instead. 
Comodynes | Self - Tanning Intensive - When I first opened the box, this was the first thing I saw and I'm very excited to try these towelettes. Really, I need to do a whole blog over what sunless tanners I use. I have so many!
theBalm cosmetics | Stainiac in Beauty Queen - I'm into lip stains right now because of the heat (yet a whole other blog post), and this one was great for building up color. My lips are naturally pale so I can use all the color I can get!

tili | Bags - Fitting with the jet setting theme, these bags are the exact size needed to travel your liquids through security. While adorable, I don't think I'll be purchasing any.
Likewise | Facial Moisturizer + Sun Protectant SPF 50 for Normal to Oily Skin - While I normally cringe at the thought of another moisturizer, I think I'm a little intrigued over this one. It's mostly for the fact that they describe it as a hydrating toner to mattify the skin. I figured this one I could give a shot. 
Birchbox Man Extra | John Varvatos Star USA cologne - Not sure if Cory will be up to trying something new (he's pretty set in his ways for this kind of stuff), but we will see. Every time I read it, I think 'MERICA. ha 
What was in your box this month?

Ah I was hoping my box would have the self tanner it in too, but it didn't :( I would love to read your blog post just on self tanners though. I have tons but always look for new ones that are even better.
