Birchbox (May)

I’ve been meaning to share this month’s Birchbox and I just haven’t gotten around to it. Sorry! So, without further adieu, here it is!!




  1. Beauty Protector- Locks in color, adds shine and instantly detangles your hair.
  2. Isaac Mizrahi “Fabulous”- Parfum with mandarin, jasmine and vanilla scents.
  3. Paul & Joe Beaute– Moisturizing foundation primer
  4. StriVectin– Eye concentrate for wrinkles
  5. Mighty Leaf Tea Pouches (Lifestyle Extra)- Green Tea Tropical, Chamomile Citrus & Organic Earl Grey


Well, I’ve tried Beauty Protector and the Isaac Mizrahi Parfum. The parfum smells delicious. I love it! As for the beauty protector, my spray bottle was defective. It refuses to pump anything out. This means that I had to screw off the lid and use it the old fashioned way- pour it into my hand. It’s mediocre. I don’t think it works as great as some of the John Frieda products that I love but it works better than some of the cheaper stuff that I’ve previously purchased. Therefore, it is mediocre.

As for the tea, I am moments away from trying the Chamomile Citrus. I no longer drink anything with caffeine in it. So, I can’t have the other two. I will be sure to pass them along to someone who might enjoy them.

I also don’t need the StriVectin, yet. So, I am sending that to my mother or grandmother. They can fight over it. The last thing on the list is the foundation primer and I will give that a go sometime tomorrow.

A Small Bust

This month’s box was a little bit of a bust for me because I couldn’t use or didn’t need some of the stuff in it. However, the boxes are usually great for me. So, I’ll take one bad box for $10. Usually, I get way more than $10 worth of stuff and it’s all useful to me. May just wasn’t my month. Oh, well. Enjoy the pictures! Oh, and if you want to sign up or are interested, please use my referral link at the bottom. We both will get points.
