2014 May BIRCHBOX – Unboxing

Finally! Sorta meh box this month…let’s just say the giveaway box is growing.

“Products I don’t use will be combined into a GIVEAWAY. Why not? I don’t like wasting things, but anyway.”

BIRCHBOX

Don’t really have a favorite this time around but if I had to choose I’d pick the sunscreen. Since summer is around the corner this actually is useful. I liked the design of the box this time around – possibly provided some inspiration for artwork. Geometric graphic patterns always win.

 

What’s in the BOX:
  • Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint (full size $38) – This is going into the giveaway bin. The color I received is ‘bronzed’. I’m black soooo yeah needless to say this isn’t my shade.
  • Kérastase Cristalliste Bain Cristal Thick – Cleanse  (full size $38) – I would’ve used this if my mom didn’t snatch it from the box (as you can see they are NOT pictured haha). It basically a volumizing shampoo for long hair.
  • Kérastase Lait Cristal Conditioner – Treat (full size $41) – Oh and she took this too. I should’ve at least fought to keep the conditioner since I use them more than shampoos BUT why not let her try something different.
  • Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream (full size $20) – Haven’t tried this yet but looking at the reviews it’s a hit or miss. The flavor I received is Acai Grapefruit. Apparently this is a Birchbox exclusive.
  • Supergoop!® Everyday SPF 30 with Cellular Response Technology (full size $48) – Noncomedogenic sunscreen. I just use a pea-sized amount with my reg moisturizer for my face.
  • ElevenSkin Rescue Omega 3 Serum (full size $75) – Good addition since I’m fond of facial serums. The smell is kinda bleh bleh bleh but I use it at night and it’s been great. Just wish the sample size was bigger.
Well this wasn’t the worst box so it falls in the middle. I’ll update on products I have used. Hopefully next month’s is on time/better.
