Birchbox May!! I was so excited for this box because their last collaboration with teen vogue was such a great box.. I was expecting a gossip girl box would be out of this world! Some of them were (I've seen other peoples boxes).. mine was not bad at all though =) Read on to see what I received in my Gossip Girl BirchBox.

Birchbox came in the mail as usual with their little black box =).. The post card is cute I wish it was a girls night out instead of a Sunday brunch. I think that would have fit me more.

I only received 1 notecard.. lol.. I think it's cute and will come in handy. I wish I would have at least received 2. so that the person I leave a note for can respond in their own note haha

This is basically a BB cream with spf 25! I have not tried this yet on my face but I did on my hand after I did my swatch.. and it doesn't seem bad at all. BB creams are meant to be worn lightly and are used to even out your skin tone without heavy coverage. I like to have medium coverage.. but I love how high the spf is in this product. It will be put to good use along with my sheer cover concealer =)

I have yet to use this.. since I am currently testing out the Garnier Fructis from Bzzagent. I usually have good volume in my hair.. but that is usually in the morning because I like to sleep with my hair slightly damp. My hair tends to get volume that way because my pillow is pushing my hair up a bit.

It is very cooling.. I like the smell.. and the sample size they gave us is a good size. It is really great to use in the morning for those puffy eyes and dark circles! It works fine for me.. but I will be testing it out some more to see if it continues to work. After my sample is used up I will not be purchasing it since the price is so high.. $65! I know in some cases money isn't a big deal especially when it comes to skin care.. but I know I can find a cheaper alternative for an eye cream =)

Nail Polish!! I love nail polish. I received a mini color club. I really like the color and how it comes out. However, I don't know if it's suppose to be like this or not but the consistency is a bit thick and got thick quickly. I'm not sure if i should put nail polish thinner in it or not. You can kind of see the thickness of it in the 3rd picture. In the last picture you can see a sneak peek of my current nails.. that will be up soon!
If you have yet to try Birchbox.. I say give it a try =) $10 is not bad at all for a bunch of samples.. Usually Birchbox is good on giving deluxe samples. I will be subbing to Glossy Box and that might replace one of my current subscriptions! but I cannot wait! You can join through my referral link HERE. I will see you all in a later post. Bye bye and as always Thank You for reading.
