I can’t believe how quickly the month of May has flown by and June has almost arrived, but before the new month starts I thought I would do an unboxing of my Birchbox May 2015 Box. The May Birchbox is without a doubt somewhat themed around summer bliss, with samples ranging from sunblock to protect, to a hydrating body butter to keep skin looking moisturize, along with a perfume that radiates summer with citrus notes along with hints of musk and to wrap it all up a hair care item and a mascara.
For the month of May Birchbox has teamed up with Emily Schuman, the creator of the lifestyle + beauty website/blog Cupcakes and Cashmere, to collaborate on their May Birchbox.
Full size $23.50
The first product that landed in my Birchbox May 2015 Box ,was the all- natural mascara by W3ll People. Besides from having sleek nice packaging this mascara is formulated to help with lengthening lashes, and what makes W3LL Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara extra special in my opinion is that W3ll’s Mascara is stated by the brand to be formulated without dyes and chemicals. This mascara has definitely been one of my favorites samples from my May Birchbox.
Product 2 Juara Candlenut Body Creme*
Full size $35.00
The next product that took center stage was the Juara Candlenut Body Creme. This body creme helps to reveal skin that is smoother, softer and radiant, because of the key ingredient candlenut oil. I love that this body creme helped to keep my skin looking and feeling hydrated all day. The scent is extremely clean and fresh very similar to soap and water clean.
Product 3 Number 4 Thermal Styling Spray
Full size $30.00
The next product in my box was from a familiar brand that many subscribers have probably seen before in their Birchboxes by the hair care line No.4. For my May Birchbox I received the Number 4 Thermal Styling Spray, and this hair care product is geared towards protecting ones hair from heat damage from flat irons, curling irons and all other heat styling instruments. This nutrient rich spray/ spritz also helps with adding hold and taming frizz helping to reveal more nourished protected hair overtime.
Product 4 English Laundry Notting Hill Femme
Full size $90.00
My May Birchbox also featured a fragrance by English Laundry named Notting Hill. The scent of this fragrance starts off very citrus and dries down to a subtle vanilla musk. I think this fragrance is perfect for those summer nights out on the town. The scent is playful, sophisticated and daring. English’s Laundry Notting Hill Femme contains notes of lemon, bergamot,wood and peppercorn.
Product 5 CoTZ Flawless Complexion SPF 50*
Full size $19.99
And, finally to top off my Birchbox May 2015 Box was the CoTZ Flawless Complexion SPF 50. Definitely a must have summer beach bag essential in my opinion, because this is not just a sun care protection product, but a corrective skin care/makeup product that is formulated to help with evening ones skin tone, and at the same time works to block UVA and UVB rays. I love that CoTZ Flawless Complexion SPF 50 did not leave a chalky look on my skin, it blended beautifully and I will definitely be purchasing a bottle. This is a sheer tint that Cotz’s claims will help even out ones tone and will not clog ones pores.
And, that was my Birchbox May 2015 Box. I thought Birchbox did not disappoint again in offering a well mixed box full of samples to not only tackle the month, but every month. The variety of samples in the May Birchbox was perfect in my opinion, and I definitely discovered a lot of favorites from this box. And, that’s a wrap on my Birchbox unboxing for the month of May.
