Birchbox Subscription Boxes

My May Birchbox

I’ll be honest…not my favorite Birchbox (especially since I’ve been loving them recently).

Here’s what I got:

May 2013 Birchbox
May 2013 Birchbox
  • Cargo Water Resistant Blush in ‘Bali’ This was probably the one redeeming product in this box. I really love this blush! The color is a super pretty “doll” pink and applies really nicely. The pigmentation is very strong, so only a little bit is needed. I’m not really sure about the waterproof claim because I haven’t really payed attention to it, but it does seem like it would last for awhile because of the texture.
  • COOLA Classic SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face I don’t really like receiving moisturizers, so I haven’t tried this yet. Fortunately, its SPF 30 which is what I use on a daily basis, so I could see this coming in handy for travel.
  • Marvis Toothpaste Toothpaste?? Okay. I mean…I’ll definitely try this and it will be great for travel as well, but I’d really have preferred something different.
  • Miss Jessie’s® Original Jelly Soft Curls Okay, I LOVE Miss Jessie’s and use Quick Curls regularly (which I discovered through Birchbox), but this is the 3rd Miss Jessie’s product I’ve received from them in a fairly short time period so I’m not too thrilled. I’ll definitely try this, but I’d be more excited about it if it were at least in a tube and not in the foil packets which are difficult to use. I could also get these exact packets for free off Miss Jessie’s website, so I don’t feel like they are a “deluxe” sample.
  • Pilot Corporation of America Acroball PureWhite® (in purple) This pen was actually my second favorite product in the box, oddly enough! The color I got is purple…and I was totally surprised to find out it actually wrote in purple (as opposed to just a purple pen that wrote in black/blue). It writes really nicely as well, unlike a lot of pens that are funky colors. I’d love to try the pink one!

How were your Birchboxes? Did you make out better than I did?

  1. Instead of the blush and the Miss Jessie’s (which I would have liked!) I got a deep conditioning hair mask from amica (which I’m super excited to use because of all of my recent hair damage adventures), a perfume sample (which I’ll have to wait to smell until this congestion goes away — but I love love love perfume samples because I’m too cheap to buy the full size) and a mini pencil eyeliner which I’m loving since it doesn’t tug at (and therefore tickle) my waterline. This is actually one of my favorite birchboxes to date!

  2. I would love to try that Marvis toothpaste haha. No idea why! I love the Cargo HydraBronze but I haven’t yet tried their blushes. They sound lovely. ♥

  3. I cancelled my birchox a while back, and haven’t missed it. It’s always hit or miss. Great review, though. Products this month seem to have been womp womp across the board.
