Birchbox (May 2012)

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.

* Please click on any of the images to see the larger version.

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.

 BirchBox Extra Notecards- | $10 for a set of 12
 "Text messages are no match for handwritten notes on fun, modern stationery"

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

Dr.Jart + Waterfuse BB Cream | $32 for Full Size
 "Think of this four-in-one moisturizer, serum, sunscreen, and skin-perfecting tint as the (extremely stylish) Swiss Army Knife of your beauty lineup"

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 =)

Ojon volume advance Volumizing Shampoo- | $22 for Full Size
 "Made with ultra nourishing Central American ojon oil, this weightless shampoo helps hair look and feel thicker"

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.

Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm- | $65 for Full Size
"Dark circles don't stand a chance against this rich eye cream, which softens fine lines and deflates puffiness with a unique microalgae compound"

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 =)

Color Club Nail Polish in Disco Nap | $8 for Full Size
 "Give nails a gilded look with this luxe metallic polish"

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!

Once again the products for the gossirch! (gossip birch lol) but they could have been better.  I really thought there would have been more make up because that is what everyone usually loves about gossip girl.  The fashion and make up looks are always great and are what I usually like to look at besides the story line of course.  Speaking of the story line.. I loved the ending.. and knew she was going to choose Chuck!.. It's really a cat and mouse game back and forth with them two.  I loved the look on Chuck's face when Blair showed up and said she was going to chase him and her makeup was so flawless!  Can't wait for the new season.  The original Gossip Girl is back and Georgina will be back... I can just smell the drama.. (if drama had a smell of course) lol!

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.

Don't forget to enter my current giveaways:
Part 1 & Part 2


  1. Looks like some good samples! I've been dying to try a BB Cream. I kinda wanna join Birch Box :)

    1. Hey Kristin!!.. hmm If you have been looking at my other birchbox reviews and like them.. you should try it out =).. you can always cancel if you don't like it. I might try glossybox as soon as they open up subscriptions.. but theirs is $21/month =.=

  3. Too bad you didn't get a perfume..I really liked mine and the other samples that I saw in some review videos sounded great too.

    I really like the BB cream and how well it blends in and feels so light. I get burnt on my cheeks and nose easily, so this is really nice.

    I'm hoping for more great things in the future with Birchbox. I really wanted to get the Dior perfume sample or the Dior mascara in this box. I'm not watching the video that tells you the possible contents of the box until after I get mine next month. I need to let it be more of a surprise (but I'm too impatient!)
