May Birchbox

Hi everyone! This is my first Birchbox. For those of you who don't know what it is, for $10 a month (free, yes FREE shipping) you get a box of 5 mid rage or high end deluxe samples. Unfortunately they only ship to the U.S. :( Wish it was everywhere so everyone everywhere could share my happyness.:(
Box arrives to your mailbox every month between the 10th and the 13th. Pretty sweet huh? My sister signed up and since I do everything she does (and vise versa) I had to as well. I signed up at Birchbox and it was pretty simple. Just entered my card and then filled out a beauty profile so they would know the sort of stuff I prefer. I do wish their beauty profile was a little more specific though. In one section it asked what I look for the most, the latest colors, hair product, or skin care product. As you know I am mostly into neutral e/s, not so much "The latest color", so I didn't know what to put. I do like pastels though, cause they can be worn with red l/s!
This month's theme was Mother's Day. Onto the box!

The I chipped off so it says "B RICH BOX" lol.

Rundown of all the products.

Love how everything came nicely packaged. AHAVA mineral hand cream shown here. This is very creamy and leaves my hands creamy.

A blank card from

Full size stila e/s in Wisteria!

BVLGARI Jasmin Noir and Achipelago Pomegranate soap. The soap smells amazing! I have it in a soap dish on my bathroom sink. I loved the perfume so much I'm getting the full size.

My sister's stila shadow in Ebony. She doesn't like e/s so she asked if I wanted it. DON'T MIND IF I DO.

They're huge! Penny for size comparison.

I loved both shadows! Wisteria has blue shimmer, I DIE! Ebony is SO pigmented!

All the products they send in the box are available for purchase on their site, which is pretty sweet. Every box you purchase gives you 10 loyalty points. Also, giving feedback and reviewing each item you got in the box gives your 10 loyalty points per review. 100 loyalty points=$10 off the purchase of a full size product or you can use it towards your next Birchbox. Pretty sweet! So far i'm very pleased with my first box!
Thanks for reading!




  1. I'm SO JEALOUS you got a full sized Stila shadow, I have a Stila palette & I have one empty pan, it bothers me haha :)

  2. I've seen a lot of complaints about this recent box. But wow you got a full size eyeshadow. A lot of people didn't get that. Lucky!

  3. Lucky you. free stuff is the best.

  4. I've been thinking of getting these, but I didn't know about the loyalty points thing. Wow!

    lol! Awww! Oh i'd' go crazy if I had an incomplete palette--we have to change that! Sephora, you and me, STAT. :P

    @ Rai

    I would have been disappointed too if I hadn't gotten the e/s. Box would have been missing something. I'm not too crazy about the card, though it is good quality. :)

    @ Lexa

    Thanks! Indeed, pretty sweet. :D

    @ Vijiis

    Oh you haz to sign up! It would be fun to blog about it and see what you get and I don't!:)

  6. YAY!! Thats cool everyone gets different products! I never got the Ahava hand cream, I got an anti-wrinkle serum instead and I got 'Black Cat' e/s instead of 'Wisteria' =))

  7. @ Janalyn

    Isn't that awesome?? Makes looking at other Birchboxes fun! Did you try the serum yet?? How does it fell to have a serum that's worth $170 on your face?:O Black cat looked gorg! I want a shimmery black!

  8. To Sephora we go, haha :)

    Unrelated to this post, but I tried the Kirkland shampoo you love, and it's AMAZING! I got a sample a while back when they were giving them away on the site. I love it!

  9. @ Vintage

    SWEET! Let me get my shoes and i'm on my way, lol.;)

    YAY I'm so glad you loved it!! It's ridiculously good! <33 I wish they were still doing the samples, everybody needs to try it.

  10. This was more or less the BB that finally convinced me to subscribe. Ooooh how I wish i'd done it before.
