May Birchbox | Beauty

May Birchbox UK

Inside May Birchbox UK

Another month, another Birchbox and this month's theme is Free Your Mind (and the rest will follow!). I feel that Birchbox is really trying to engage with consumers, they offer the ability to choose which sample you'd like, next month you're going to be able to choose your own design for the box and this month you can actually colour it in. Its a really nice touch!

This month I'm actually pretty happy with the contents, starting with colouring pencils. I think it's fun that they have actually provided the pencils to fill in your box. Another product I was really happy to see was the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturiser. I received a great light shade and will be writing a separate review in a few weeks.  

Next we have the WAH London Nail Art Pen, this is another fun addition to the box this month however I imagine it's probably still going to be a little tricky to draw on my nails but I'll try it out and report back to you guys on that one. Also we have some Whish Body Butter, I wasn't too excited when I saw this because I have so many different types of moisturisers that I don't really need another one. BUT the smell of this stuff, oh my god! It smells edible because it has shea butter and raspberry butter! 

Moving onto to a couple of products I'm not that thrilled about and one is the Parlor sea salt spray, I just will never use the stuff. I can't rock the messy beach babe look, I just end up looking like a cave woman who has been dragged through a bush backwards!  No.4 Reconstructing Masque I'm a little undecided on, basically you use it after you have shampooed your hair leave on for 2-5 minutes and rinse. But It says to use sparingly because it's a highly concentrated formula so I'm unsure of how much of this sample I can use. 

Finally we have the Jelly Pong Pong Caribbean Sun Bronzer Duo and what a beauty it is. I'm gonna properly review it in a different post but my immediate thoughts are that this looks like a lovely product. The bronzer is slightly orange toned but the blusher that comes with it is a shimmery deep pink colour, which I think could actually work well as an eye shadow too. 

What did you think of this month's Birchbox?
