May 2016 Birchbox Unboxing

Happy Wednesday!!


It’s time to unbox my April Birchbox.  You ready?  Let’s go!

Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription service that sends out 5 beauty samples.

You fill out a very simple beauty profile and they send you products based on that.

I’ve noticed Birchbox sends out primarily hair and skin products but have been including more makeup lately!!



Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo Sample:  Full Size = $24



Weightless spray in the brand’s signature Obliphica scent that refreshes hair without residue.


I love receiving dry shampoo samples.  I think I already have 3 others!



Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion Sample:  Full Size = $30


This nourishing, hydrating, untinted lotion first applies clear, then develops color over 48 hours.


I’m not a self-tanning person as I already have medium skin that easily tans in summer.  But….my legs and arms are looking a little pale over here so I may test this out and see if I can get my tan on early!



MDSolarSciences Mineral Moisture Defense SPF 50 for Body Sample: Full Size = $39


This lightweight body SPF uses ceramides and humectants to restore skins natural moisture barrier.


Cargo Blush and Bronzer Duo Sample:  Full Size = $35


The warm-hued bronzer gives skin an energized glow, while the universally-flattering blush blends seamlessly into skin.


 I love Cargo products!  I was a little hesitant when I saw how dark the bronzer was and how bright the blush was.  But, they are actually perfect.  The bronzer gives a beautiful glow and the blush subtly brightens.  I love them!



Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel for Body Sample:  Full Size = $34



This acid-free peel gently exfoliates for instantly softer, smoother, brighter skin.


I received the Real Chemistry face peel a few months ago and was unimpressed.  I’m really hoping this will work for me!  I can’t wait to test it out!




Stand out products this month:

  • EVERYTHING!!!  Way to go Birchbox!

    What a great box – good mix of makeup and skincare. I love Cargo blushes – they’re one of my favourite formulas!

    1. I have really fallen in love with their blushes too! Birchbox introduced me to them last year. They are the most pigmented and long wearing formula I’ve ever tried! Do you have a favorite shade?


  2. Good mixture of products. I would really love to know how the luminous 3-minute peel works.
