May Birchbox

I was a BirchBox subscriber back in December for one month.  Then I stopped.  I guess I didn't want to spend the extra $10 a month.  A month ago I realized, HELLO!  It's $10!!!  I got the most amazing lip gloss out of that December Birchbox (I'm secretly hoping they send me another one)!  See, I figured out what I did wrong last time.  I didn't fill out the profile!  When I signed up for it again I found the profile.  Silly me!  I really am enjoying Birchbox again.  It's such a great way to discover new products.

Here's what I received for May ~




1.  DevaCurl - 3-Step System ~ This foam-free formula trio includes a nourishing grapeseed oil shampoo, curl-taming conditioner, and an award-winning, soft hold gel (Full-Size, $19).  
I tried this yesterday morning and I absolutely loved it!  I have a thing about shampoo that doesn't lather, but I was really happy with my hair all day!  The soft hold gel was fantastic.  It's not sticky like a lot of products are.  It held my hair all day and it never looked frizzy.
                In the morning after flipping my hair over and drying it a little bit // In my car at the end of the day

2.  Acroball Pen - I LOVE OFFICE SUPPLIES!  How did Birchbox know???  It writes in a pretty teal.  I'll use this color in my planner and my weight watchers tracker.

3.  Coola - Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face ~ This mineral sunblock is infused with organic, antiaging (heck yeah) ingredients like evening primrose extract and borage seed oil (Full-Size, $32).
Something I always worry about when it comes to spf lotions is that it's going to stink!  This product smells so nice and fresh.  It also has a cooling effect when you apply it.

4.  Whish - Shave Crave Shaving Cream ~ The organic shea butter in this shaving cream leaves your skin incredibly soft and your shave insanely close.  Plus, we love the exclusive blueberry scent (Full-Size, $20).
I haven't tried this yet, but it sure does smell good!  Lindsay, over at Pursuit of Pink, has tried it and said it is awesome!

5.  Sumita - Color Contrast Eyeliner ~ Inspired by traditional Indian formulas, this velvety liner glides on easily and lasts hours (Set of 4 mini pencils, $21).
I did not care for this eyeliner.  The pencil is really thick and I am not that great with a thick pencil.  Once it goes on it stays there.  I prefer a thinner pencil, because I can control it better.  When I washed my face at the end of the day it did not come off very easily.  I don't like that either.

I hope everyone that gets a Birchbox had a fun box :)  To learn more about Birchbox go HERE.
