My May Birchbox

This month's Birchbox is about "you" and keeping a beauty diary to track "the order in which you try your products, your daily routine, the techniques you've mastered." The card featured a fill in the black diary. It was a bit odd. Here's what I received inside my box:

amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask (.67 fl oz/16.9 fl oz $40) | Coola Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face (.23 fl oz/1.7 oz $32) | Isaac Mizrahi FABULOUS Eau de Parfum (.05 fl oz/1.75 oz $65) | Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste (.5 oz/3.86 $14.99) | Sumita Suman Contrast Eye Pencil in Black (.024 oz/full size $11) | Birchbox Finds: Pilot Acroball Pure White pen

Excited by this brand because they're made with certified organic ingredients, gluten and cruelty free. According to the site the "Vitamin C rich organic Strawberry Extract soothes, tones and minimizes pores. Organic Acai Oil - high in Omegas-3/6/9, Vitamins B1/2/3 and Vitamins C and E - delivers powerful anti-aging benefits. Organic Evening Primrose and Linseed Oils reduce inflammation and balance moisture, as the phyto-protector Plankton Extract rejuvenates skin." I enjoyed using it although the sample is really small so only got one use. The cucumber smell is fun to wear especially for the summer - wakes up your skin.

This fancy toothpaste is imported from Italy. Marvis flavours are created by offsetting the aroma of mint, to provide the freshness you need, with innovative notes to offer you a long-lasting pleasurable taste sensation that can be different every day. The classic mint flavor is recommended for smokers. This was a good toothpaste, wasn't overpowered with the mint taste and my teeth felt clean after using.

This perfume is a modern blend of citrus, peony, and musk. "Mandarin and nectarine, along with sparkling bergamot, enhance the top notes. A boundless bouquet of flowers--including seductive jasmine sambac, tuberose, and peony--capture the heart of the fragrance and feminine tonality. The end notes are a combination of warm vanilla, blond woods, and sensuous patchouli complemented with an addictive mix of smooth sandalwood and creamy musk." It was a very light and fresh smell that I was happy to wear.

Was excited to see Sumita in this month's Birchbox because I met them at HBA last year and their really loved their eye pencils! I featured their contrast eye pencil in my August beauty product favorites. Excited to add this black color to my collection - so gorgeous.

This hair mask features Sea Buckthorn Berry (Obliphica) with omega 7 and Vitamin C intense conditioning and repair for all hair types. It's free of parabens and sulfates. My hair feels super soft and moisturized after using. I really enjoyed it using this product but unfortunately was only able to get one use out of it.

What did you get in your Birchbox this month?


  1. That's a really weird marketing idea.... But I do love Marvis toothpaste. =]

  2. The eyeliner and hair conditioner were great - but why a pen?!

  3. lol right? Other boxes have done "kick off to summer" or transitioning to spring. Not a lame card to fill out


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
