Birchbox Review ------ May 2014

Today was such a great mail day for me. 


I wasn't expecting my May Birchbox for a few more days so I was very pleasantly surprised to see it in my mailbox today.  I think this is probably the earliest I have ever gotten a Birchbox. It's also the first time I have stayed spoiler free... yay for me and my unusual self control!





Birchbox is the subscription box that started it all. I think most of us subscription junkies started out on BB and the obsession grew from there. Even with the ever growing list of new boxes though, Birchbox is still one of my favorites.


 For $10 a month you receive 4-5 deluxe (and often full size as well) beauty samples. It's one of the least expensive subs and they've turned me on to so many fantastic brands and products.


In addition to the info card, there is also a special little treat for us. 


Kate Spade ' s new Saturdays line has launched and they teamed up with BB to give us $25 off any $75 order from saturdays.com. woo-hoo!!


Beauty Protector Shampoo and Conditioner --- these are some of the best smelling hair products I have ever used.  It lathers well and gets the job done. I also love the packaging!


LAQA & Co sheer lip lube pencil --- I did a happy dance when I saw this. I adore LAQA nail polish but haven't tried their lip products. It's a gorgeous coral shade that is creamy and sheer and wears well through the day. Definitely need to get myself some more of these!


Supergoop SPF with cellular response technology --- This is a new brand for me. I'm not sure what's so special about it but it's definitely a useful product. I'm super pale and need spf pretty much everyday. Perfect for my purse too!


32 Oral Care breathe crystals --- this is the lifestyle product for me this month and I'm kind of wary of them. They are supposed to crackle in your mouth like poprocks.... minty poprocks.....  weird.

All in all, this was a great box and I'm very happy with all the products I received. Birchbox has really been on a roll lately!  Can't wait to see what next months (yay june! My birthday month! ) has to offer.


Did you get a Birchbox this month? Tell me what you thought about it!
