Time to share my May Birchbox with everyone! For those of you that don’t know, this month was sponsored by GossipGirl. Truthfully, I am two seasons behind on the show, but the seasons I did watch were great! Loved them.
Unfortunately my first May box that I received wasn’t in such great shape. The polish had shattered and basically made a big ol’ mess.
But I e-mailed the lovely people at Birchbox, and they happily sent me a brand new one. The second one successfully arrived all in one piece.
And here’s what I got this month!
Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm – I tried this one out this morning and I have to say I actually noticed a big (to me) difference. I’m sure no one else would’ve noticed the subtle change in color under my eyes, but I sure did. I will definitely continue to use this product, however, I’m not sure I will buy the full size ($65). Also, this product didn’t get ruined by the nail polish the first time around so I actually have two of these already.
Color Club Nail Polish in Disco Nap – It’s a super sparkly gold color. I can’t wait to try it out! As many of you know, I’m a little obsessed with nail polish these days.
Dr. Jart + Waterfuse BB Cream -This product is a moisturizer with a little bit of tint and sunscreen. My favorite. I will not wear any face lotion without SPF. It’s a must for me. Right now I’m obsessed with my Aveeno tinted moisturizer, but I think I’m going to give this one a shot tomorrow to see if I like it.
Ojon Volume Advance Volumizing Shampoo – I’m a little weird about not have the same brand/kind of shampoo as my conditioner, but I’ll give this a shot. I’m traveling this weekend too so it will be the perfect size to throw in my suitcase. Hopefully it volumizes the heck out of my hair because, well, I basically have none. Teasing my hair has become my only source of volume these days. I swear that can’t be good for your hair either.
Bircbox Extra: Notecard – I can’t wait to send this cute little note to say hello to a friend. Obviously the “xoxo” part is from GossipGirl, but not everyone knows that. It’s still adorable. Now, who shall the lucky recipient be?
All in all I think it was a pretty good Birchbox. I think I will definitely add the eye balm to my daily routine, and of course I loved the nail polish. I give this month’s box a 6 out of 10. No idea what they are going to have to send me to get a 10 out of 10…but we’ll see. Maybe one day!
