Now if you aren't familiar with Birchbox then you are in for a treat. It is a box of 4-5 beauty samples that you receive monthly. You pay $10 a month (no shipping and handling charges) for deluxe high-end samples that include skincare, makeup and beauty tools. This is a great way to try out products without having to pay tons of money and if you like a product you can buy the full-size on the Birchbox website and build up points - like a reward system. Your points help you buy products at a discount - for every 100 points you get $10 off a full-size product. At this time Birchbox is only available in the United States, its territories and APO boxes.
If you recall, we made a video of our very first delivery last month. As we receive our boxes we will sometimes make videos and sometimes just do a written post. Before we dive in and show you what we received we wanted to quickly tell you what our favorite product was in our box from April. Can you guess?? It has to be the Zoya Nail Polish in Jules. It's just a beautiful gold metallic (perfect for any season) that we have enjoyed wearing.
Now on to the main attraction...
The packaging is back to it's very pretty bright pink. Last month's was green in celebration of Earth Day.
What we received:
1.) Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Glisten - A gorgeous gloss that conquers dryness and ho-hum style in a single, shimmery swoop. Also Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint (2 samples).
2.) Serge Lutens Eau De Parfum in Nuit De Cellophane - A modern take on the fruity floral: fresh green and tart mandarin notes combined with creamy rose and jasmine.
3.) DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer - This gel-like serum works to hydrate skin and shrink pores, and fights off wrinkles with potent peptides. Apply to clean skin in the morning and night, before moisturizer or SPF.
4.) AHAVA Mineral Body Lotion - This light moisturizer sinks in quickly to add marathon moisture - natural aloe and witch hazel give it an energizing scent.
TREAT (something extra that the ladies at Birchbox throw in each month) Tiny Prints Card - We're hooked on Tiny Prints, which lets you customize all their adorable greeting cards, from birthday wishes to thank you notes.
We can't wait to try out each of these fabulous products and we will report back next month about what we thought of the May samples.
