Thank you for helping us by reporting bad content.
he theme for the May Birchbox was Gossip Girl Inspired. I have never in my life watched an episode of Gossp Girl, so I really had no idea what to expect, other than what Birchbox had put out there for us. They advertised this box to have brands like Dior, so I have to admit I was little anxious to get my box. Although I didn`t receive any items from Dior, I can say there was an item I`m kind of pleased to have received. So here we go, here`s my box with the Birchbox Breakdown below each item:
Arquiste Flor y Canto
Fragrance snobs, prepare to be blown away. Niche perfumerie Arquiste set out to create concept scents that recreate specific moments in history, and the results are nothing short of remarkable. Together with famed perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, founder Carlos Huber put in countless hours of painstaking research to create Flor y Canto, a scent that evokes an Aztec summer festival in Tenochtitlan circa 1400. Wear it to be transported to a dimly lit temple altar filled with fresh flowers.
Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream
Beyond a firm handshake, the first thing we want strangers to notice about our hands is their softness. Fortunately, we can always rely on this French brands anti-aging cream to smooth dry knuckles, moisturize nail beds, and generally keep our hands in top condition. Thanks to the botanical ingredients, it also has an appealing fruity scent. Each generous tube will last you for monthseven if youre like us and apply multiple times a day.
FusionBeauty LipFusion Balm Lip Conditioning Stick SPF 15
Our lips are pretty demanding. We have salves to keep them flake-free, glosses to add color and shine, and plumpers for extra fullness. Now we can accomplish all that with a single product, FusionBeautys multi-tasking wonder balm. This satiny formula has soothing natural oils to replenish lost moisture, gentle plumping ingredients, and a gorgeous shine. Did we mention that its loaded with SPF too?
Ojon damage reverse Restorative Conditioner
If youre coping with dull strands, this creamy hair-repairing conditioner is just what the doctor ordered. Its full of natural oils to restore damage hair and unleash shiny, healthy locks that radiate shine. Its great for all hair typesranging from pin-straight to frizzy and curlyand doubles as a deep conditioning treatment. Use it regularly, and over time your hair will be noticeably stronger and healthier.
Here are the cards for this month`s box:
And here is my review:
FusionBeauty Lip Fusion Conditioning Lip Balm with SPF 15 - Full size is .17 oz and retails for $22. I did receive the full size so that is major plus. The color I received is clear. I`m not totally excited about this item because I have so many lip products now from these subscription service, but that`s not BB`s fault. This balm has a avery light minty smell with something else I can;t really put my finger on. It does smell very nice and I won`t mind wearing it because it does go on so smooth, and it lasts! I really like that this lip balm is a nice container, because it looks more classy than regular chap-stick, and that makes my coworkers ask about it!
Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream - Full size is .75 ml and retails for $19. I received .15ml. I like hand creams, but I`m fine with Avon`s hand creams that are usually .99 cents. They do wonders. This hand cream isn`t bad either but I know I will never purchase it, and that`s fine because at least for a while I will have a different hand cream. This cream has a citrus smell and I do like that also. I just would have preferred some other item.
Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Conditioner - Full size is 8.5 Fl oz. and retails for $25. I received 1fl oz. This is the item that I am very pleased to have received. I just got my hair cut and I am practicing Healthy Hair moves, so this will be fun to try. The price really isn`t crazy because most higher end hair care items average that price. If I like this product I may purchase it, especially with the Birchbox Points.This is another deluxe size sample, and I`m impressed BB has stepped up the game for this box - size wise of course.
I did not take a picture of the Arquiste fragrance, because I mainly wanted everyone to see the size of the main items, and as mentioned before i really cringe when i get those tiny vials of perfumes, since I ca receive them at any counter, magazines, or other websites as samples when I purchase through them.
Arquiste Flor y Canto full size is 55 ml and retails for $165. I do like the smell. It`s very sexy and floral and I do enjoy that it`s a Mexican scent since I am half Mexican. But again, I`ll only be able to use a few times.
The Birchbox Extra was a note card which you can see from the very first picture. I`m sick of the extras. They are usually silly like this. I probably will use this but not until Valentines Day.
All in All, I rate this box 7/10. I guess I just was not totally impressed with the items sent to me. I really want cosmetics. I have only received a cosmetic item 2-3 times since August 2011, when I first signed up. I know I can cancel at any time, but I`m really hoping to receive more cosmetics each month That is why I am still loyally subscribed. Also, The sample size of each product sent (minus the fragrance) truly is a "deluxe size sample" If these items were any smaller, I would have rated this box 3/10.
So what did you think of my Gossip Girl box? Would have been satisfied with these items?
