Manic Monday:May Birchbox Brag

What is Birchbox? Well some of you might still be asking this question. There are several ways to subscribe, monthly, 3 or 6 month memberships or yearly. Each month is just $10. After you fill in your simple beauty profile you will receive 1 box each month with 4-6 awesome beauty samples and coupons. Wanna Join? Yes!!! Click {HERE}

My first month was a special month and I received the Teen Vogue Box, it rocked! This month was another special month with a Gossip Girl Box. I'm not a fan of this show so I didn't really know what to expect. After reading a few other reviews I found that most were expecting high end cosmetics

I received the Chic Sunday Brunch Box based off of my beauty profile. 

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25+
I LOVED this product! I have already ordered the full size item. It was a great moisturizer, no break outs like with normal foundation and power, great tint and doesn't give me the usually caked make up feel. 

So this wasn't a hit for most. I like it okay, better for a fall evening color. Will use it later in the year, I think the Essie Gold that I got in the Teen Vogue box was more summer appropriate, but I love all of the polishes.

Ojon volume advance™ Volumizing Shampoo
Smelled good, clean organic smell. Nothing amazing that would make me change from my regular shampoo to this more expensive version. 

Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm

Haven't used this yet, not sure if I will. Might pass it on to mom or sister in-laws.

The note card extra was okay I would have preferred a makeup or beauty item, but I will still put it to good use:)

Overall I was pleased with my box and will look forward to next I don't see cancellation in my future any time soon.

  1. I'm glad you liked it & aren't planning on cancelling!!
    I liked Dr Jart's, too. I'm not a fan of the gold you said - not the season for it!

  2. My box was the same as yours. I liked Dr Jart's as well! I do like the eye cream, but not sure if it actually DOES anything! :) I feel about the same as you about the rest of the box.

  3. so jealous that you got the bb cream! i feel like everyone got it except me! :(

  4. The note card sounds super cute! I agree though, I would probably like a beauty product more!


I love comments almost as much as I love Starbucks and cupcakes - I can't wait to get to know you better.
