May 2015 Birchbox

Hey everyone!

So my Birchbox FINALLY came today!  This is the longest it has ever taken to get to me.

Anyways…I love the box design and the theme this month!


Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription service that sends out 5 beauty samples.  I’ve been subscribed for a few months now and have been loving it!

Now…. on to the products I received for the month of May.

  • Harvey prince “Hello”

Best selling spritz that mingles cheerful citrus with floral notes.

I received a full size of this in a past Boxycharm and wasn’t too crazy about the scent.  I’m unable to wear perfume anyway due to my sensitivity to fragrances.  So this will be going to a good friend of mine.


  • Marcelle Hydra-C 24 HR Energizing Hydrating Gel

Lightweight, vitamin-packed hydrator that brightens skin and goes on cucumber-cool.

This is paraben free, perfume free (YAY!!!) and hypo-allgergenic.  This sounds like the perfect product for me so I’m super excited to try it out!

Good job Birchbox!


  • Beauty Protector Beauty Wash Body Cleanser

This rich, foamy gel cleanses skin without drying, and has a dreamily sweet scent.

I received a hair oil from this brand in the past and actually really love the scent.  I like that this has a very subtle sweetness to it.  I’m a little hesitant to try it out because scented body products usually wreck havoc.  We’ll see about this one.

  • Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment

Loaded with antioxidants, this lightweight formula hydrates hair and boosts shine.

This is a great sample size!  It’s 1 fl oz which will last me a really long time.  It says this is for those with medium to coarse hair texture and will help nourish, repair and tame hair.

I have been really into hair oils lately so I’m happy I received this.  Plus the packaging is so sleek!

Another A+ product!

  • Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain in “Poppy:

A long-wearing stain from the NYC-based designer that gives unbeatable moisture and shine.

Can I just say….the packaging is sooo cute!  I love the gold dots and the cute little teeny-tiny size of this product (normally that’s a bad thing!)

I haven’t tried out the color yet, but it looks like the perfect pop of color for Spring/Summer!

I can’t wait to see how this builds up and if it really adds moisture instead of drying out my lips like more stains do.

Overall, I am pretty pleased with my box this month.  I really love the lip stain, moisturizer and hair oil.  I think the body wash and perfume may go to a friend of mine (who I’m sure won’t mind at all!)

Hope you all had a fantastic day!  I actually had a really great Tuesday!  Everything at work went smoothly and I came home to dinner that was made by my husband!  He’s fantastic!

    the hair oil and hydrating gel look good 😀 Birchbox is so cool!! it can’t be too customized for anyone so perfume-free product is a smart idea 😀 Hope you’ll have good experience with these ^^


    1. I don’t mind receiving perfume because I can always gift it to someone else. 🙂 but you’re right. I love that they also include items for those with sensitive skin. Thanks for your comment! 🙂
