Birchbox – May ’15 Review

May 17, 2015

I always look forward to the middle of the month when my couple subscription boxes arrive. May’s Birchbox’s was done in partnership with Cupcakes & Cashmere, which I pop in on every once in a while. I like that Birchbox is doing more of these partnered boxes!

Harvey Prince Sea Salt Texturizing Spray: Birchbox sure does love Harvey Prince products! I’ve always wanted to try a sea salt spray so I was really excited about getting this in my box. I’m interested on how this will do in my hair since I already have naturally wavy-curly hair. It smells great, too.
Value: $1.00

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum: I’ve also taken a liking to facial serums especially at night. It’s to fight signs of aging, which I hope I don’t need yet at my age. I don’t love the smell, but I’ll still use it nonetheless.
Value: $5 or 6

Coastal Scents® Revealed 3 Palette: I’ve never been a fan of receiving eye shadows because I won’t use them. The colors also seems random. Maybe not for people who use eyeshadow? This product gets good reviews, though. I’ll most likely end up giving this item to someone else.
Value:$2?

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream: I like getting samples of facial moisturizers. I  love trying them and they’re great for travel. This is a great sized sample, the scent is nice and light, and I like how it feels on the back of my hand.
Value: $4.75

Macadamia Professional™ Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment: This was the item I was able to select for my box this month. I received a hair oil sample once last year and loved what it did to my hair in the winter. I’ve been wanting to order a full sized hair oil product, but wanted to try another brand first, so I was really excited to receive this in my box. Well, it turns out I basically hate the smell of it, which is super unfortunate. So I’ll either have to suck it up or give it to someone else.
Value: $10

I’m really happy with this month’s box, minus the eyeshadow palette. The hair oil’s value alone is the price of the box. I was trying to decide if I want to continue my subscription or stop, but I’m much more impressed with recent items than what I got last year so I’ll be keeping my subscription for a bit longer.
