Unboxing: Birchbox May 2015

Another box another Birchbox unboxing! It's strange not having mountains of boxes come to me every month but it is what it is.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Birchbox it is one of those monthly beauty sample boxes where they send you a box of 5-6 (sometimes even 7 with bonus extras) samples and deluxe samples. Occasionally there will be full size products too! The brands they send are all fairly high-end and they have a point system and customer service staff that just can't be beat. For $10 a month you are able to select a sample from a select group of choices and have more surprises delivered to you based on your beauty profile! Have I convinced you to sign up yet? If so I would love it if you would do it through my referral link here! Feel free to also go to if you want to look around without any strings attached to me.

May 2015 Birchbox partnered with Emily who wrote Cupcakes and Cashmere at Home, a blogger turned author. I absolutely love this box design it is adorable and definitely one that I will be keeping!
Mèreadesso All-In-One Moisturizer
Full Size Value: $120 | Sample Size Value: $7.05
Normally I'm not excited over moisturizer but this is in such a cute little packaging with a nice pump this guy is forgiven. There's a big discrepancy over the price between the card provided and the website but I went with the website since that is what you could buy it for off Birchbox.
TokyoMilk by Margot Elena Bon Bon Shea Butter Rich Lotion in Let Them Eat Cake
Full Size Value: $20 | Sample Size Value: $9.67
This packaging is adorable and I'm so happy I got this vanilla cake scented one! The prominent notes are noted as sugar cake, coconut milk, vanilla orchid, and white musk. I hope it works as well as it smells!
WEI Multi Mask Multi Task Mask Collection in Kakadu Plum Brightening Sugar Mask
Full Size Value: $22 | Sample Size Value: $5.50
Hallelujah a mask! Conveniently I've been really into brightening masks later so this really came at the perfect time. I can't wait to use it! This is actually one little pod that would normally come in a set with three different masks and a brush to apply it so I just guessed the sample value by dividing it evenly in four.
Full Size Value: $22 | Sample Size Value: $1
Not super excited about this because these sea salt sprays almost always dry out my hair so this isn't something I will probably end up using.
Peripera Peri’s Tint Water in Strawberry Juice
Full Size Value: $12 | Sample Size Value: $3
I hate these cheek/lip tints, they are just gross to me.

Box Value: $26.22

I'm very excited over the hand cream and the mask however I kind of hate the other three. There's been a steady downward decline of Birchbox and serious lack of personalization which is upsetting. I'm locked in for the next year though so hopefully it picks up otherwise next February, Birchbox might be getting the ax.
