May Birchbox Review


I was so excited to get the Gossip Girl box because anyone who watches it knows they only wear the best. I knew it was going to have some great high end product samples. Here are my thoughts...

This is basically a high end shine serum for your hair. It has a soft scent and works great! I will definitely use it all up - I don't think I'll purchase it though because $42 is a bit much for me to spend on a shine serum.

I was extremely disappointed with this perfume. My sample was about 3/4 empty!! I really would've liked a full sample (don't we all?). It smells wonderful. Honestly, It might me my next perfume purchase! I'm not great at explaining scents. Click on the link above to read more about it.


I really like Caudalie products. I've used the facial moisturizer in the past. This hand cream is made using natural products. It's thick and smells just wonderful - just a touch of fruit.  This will definitely go in my purse.

This is a thick cream that basically removes wrinkles (over time) and helps with all of the chemicals in the atmosphere. It moisturizes and protects.

Not for me. I received the brown color with gold sparkles. I don't wear heavy make up so this would look funny on me. Even when dressing up it's a bit too much. I put it on last night and it definitely is waterproof. If you like sparkly waterproof eyeliner give this a try. It was a full size product that I received which was nice but, I will never wear it so that's a bummer.

Overall, this box was good not great. I'm giving Birchbox one more month to make me stay. I'm sick of getting items that don't match the profile I filled out at the beginning. What was the point in filling it out if they weren't going to take any of those things into consideration? 

What did you think of this month's box? Have you tried any of the above products? What did you think?

Full sized eyeilner?!?! I got the same eyeliner, but I don't think mine was full sized. Sorry you were disappointed... I LOVE my blue glitter liner... it's one of the few things I do wear daily (not blue but black).

That hair serum smells purely blissful, doesn't it?!?! I love mine!!

Put your pretty lil face on my blog today! Thanks for stopping by and swapping with my bloggy blog!

Xo,
Bev
