For those of you who have been in the dark about it...you pay $10/month for your Birchbox - it comes with 4-6 beauty samples based on your beauty profile. Some months it's a hit...some month's it's a miss...
This month was supposed to be a Gossip Girl-inspired box.
And May's Birchbox looks like...
Arquiste L'Etrog (perfume)
Ok, first, I cannot help myself. A full bottle costs $165. OH MY. It doesn't even smell that good. Maybe it will smell better on me? I sure hope so. I could have lived without this perfume sample.
beautyblender - Blender Cleanser
This is pretty cool...the product ($18 for full size) removes built-up bacteria and oil. I guess I should be cleaning my brushes? I don't. (How bad is that??) I guess I should start cleaning my brushes (and sponges.)
Color Club - Nail Polish in "Disco Nap"
I liked Color Club's fun summer colors from March's Birchbox. I am not a big gold fan...especially since it's summer. But I guess I should be since coral (my favorite summer color this year!) since it looks so nice paired together. When I think summer nail polish color, I think bright!
Dr. Jart + - Waterfuse BB Cream
This is a four in one product - moisturizer, serum, sunscreen, and tint. A full size is $32. Since the product does so many things - worth the price! This is the only product truly like for this month's Birchbox.
twistband - Skinny Headband
Really??? This was included...why?? I seriously could have made this myself. I would gladly sell a six pack for $20. (I'd even give a discount and make it $15 for six...ha!) I think this is so silly to be in the Birchbox. It's just a piece of fabric.
Birchbox "Extra" - 1 Notecard
I understand that this is supposed to be just a perk...but what is one notecard going to do for me...really? It's cute...another sample I could have done without. How can you really "sample" a notecard?
One product out of six...I guess it's better than me not liking ANY of it?
So what did you get in your May Birchbox?? How did you like it?!
Anyone want to trade anything? Ha ha :)
