The Birchbox for May

I tried this one awhile ago and thought that I would give it another try. It has at least 6 samples for 15 dollars a month. You are able to give them your preferences and then they will customize your box accordingly. Before you get your second box they will let you chose at least one sample that you would like to get in the box.

Marcelle CC Cream Golden Glow with SPF- This cream has 12 in 1 benefits. Hides those sun spots, evens skin tone and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. And whiles correcting those skin imperfections(I hate saying that because to me all skin is perfect and should not have to hide it). This will also hydrate your skin along with protecting it from those harmful UV rays. Full size for this product is $34.

Kate Somerville Skincare: Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment- Exfoliates for a smoother even textured skin. Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To use apply a thin layer on a clean wet face. Leaving it on for 2 minutes and for sensitive skin leave on for only 1 minute. Rinse off and pat dry. The cost for a 2 oz bottle is $85.00.

Oribe Straight Away Smoothing Blowout Cream- This will protect against heat and humidity. Controls the frizz and flyaway along with repairing split ends. Contains watermelon, lychee and edelweiss flower extract. The full size cost for this product is $44.00. I did look on their site and they have some hair masks that sound wonderful yet quite costly.

Love of Color(LOC) One and Done Shadow stick, Champagne Problems- I love this product except for the fact that I will need to find a sharpener for it. Shimmery champagne color that wont rub off and is long lasting.They claim it will stay on for about 11 hours. If you want a full size it will cost around $10.

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara-The mascara that lengthens , voluminize , curls and separates your lashes. I have tried this before and well it could be me but, it did not work at all. I though have issues finding a mascara that will work to make me look like I even do have lashes. Full size for this is $25.00.

Marula Light Hair Treatment & Styling Oil- This oil is great for fine and thin hair. Controls the fizz and flyaway with no greasy build-up. Hydrates and protects from damage both inside and out. Leaving your hair shiny and strong.. The top ingredient is Marula oil harvested from wild Murula trees which is the highest quality of oil, cold pressed and antioxidant rich. The cost for a full size amount is $40.

These are all really good samples. I did decide not to continue with this box. In my personal opinion I find it to cost too much for just samples. I was paying about $10 when I got it a year ago. But if this is something you all would want to try and check out then of course try it..

(I think my doggie is mad that I did this one without her help so, next one is most definitely hers. I think she does better then I)

  1. I used to get birchbox a few years ago and could have sworn you used to get more! Seems like you got some good things to try out but I’m not surprised you’re not continuing with the box. Does the LOC shadow stick not twist from the bottom?

    Liked your review 🙂
