May Birchbox(es) Arrived!

Our May Birchboxes (emphasis on the plural) arrived in the mail a couple of nights ago featuring products suited for the Hampton's elite. Far be it from us to deny ourselves a little bit of high society beauty products. So, yes please. And thank you. This month, to our shock, we received very different boxes (the last time this happened was last August). Let's take a peek inside...



Mendi's Birchbox:


Jayme's Birchbox:


Overall we're really pleased with our boxes. You guys know how we feel about Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments, so getting a mini version of the Rose in Jayme's box was a total score. And the fine ladies over at Birchbox must have Mendi's number since they dropped in a nail polish. The only things in common that we received were the Miracle Skin Transformer and of course, the cute XOXO notecard.

If you've been on the fence about signing up for Birchbox and you missed our year-end recap a couple of weeks ago, then be sure to check it out here. For $10 a month, it's nice to get something in the mail other than bills and junk. To sign up to receive this monthly box of beauty goodies, just click here. If you already receive Birchbox, drop us a comment to let us know what you received!

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there!

  3. Mendi, I'm so jealous of your box! And Jayme, I love that you got a mini Sugar! My box was just okay. I got the Dior mascara and perfume, the miracle skin transformer, and some sort of shampoo haha. :)

  6. Your Birchboxes are totally amazing... I have to admit that I'm a bit jealous and would love to receive a similar one! I'm wondering why there are more extras in one box than in the other though...

  32. May was my first birchbox and after seeing what you two got I feel a little ripped off. ha
    Mine really stinks compared to yours. I will give it a few more months but if they keep sending out ones like I just got I will cancel. The only thing in my box that I could use was a Dior mascara sample.
    I wonder if they have people tagged that do youtube video's and send them bumped up boxes? hmmmm.
    Enjoy your products ladies.

    1. Hi there! Can't seem to get to your blog - says your profile is private. But I'm not sure. We have had the same thought about some of the bigger You Tube girls. But we get our fair share of so-so boxes. This one is great though! And Dior...that's awesome!!

  36. Tonight I'm going to a party at the CW hosted by Birchbox. They're having a season finale viewing party and I'm hoping they give us these boxes ;)

  37. soooo this month is the first birch box I received... and now I'm wondering... does everyone get different things? I swear I was under the impression we all get the same things... which is part of the reason I was super interested... I wanted to compare and contrast reviews with my fellow bloggettes! Guess not, huh? WOMP!

    I'm still happy with the goodies I got... looks like we got the same brands, different products. I got a gold glitter nail polish... TO DIE FOR... but I love that color in your box!

    Happy Monday ladies and thanks for sharing ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I got fewer and different things from you both!

    ReplyDelete
  39. So jealous you got the Fresh Rose! My box had some products I had never heard of before and I only received 4 this month. After the past few months not being so great, I finally cancelled. No more BB reviews for this girl.
