At long last i’ve found time to sit down and bring you my review of the May Birchbox!
This month the selection of five beauty treats is packaged in a gorgeous marble effect box and includes one full-sized make-up item, plus a good variety of other products. Read on to take a look at what I received.
Every subscriber was promised a full-sized item in this month’s box. The Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow (RRP £14.49) in a gunmetal grey shade called Fifty Shades, or a shimmery off white called Vanilla Frosting is a loose powder eyeshadow, made from 100% natural mineral pigments. I’m not a huge fan of loose eyeshadow as I find them messy, but as I like this smokey gray shade I’ll make an exception and give it a whirl.
My next product is the Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara (full size RRP £18). I think mascaras are one of the few products where a sample size is actually better than a full-sized item, as I find full-sized mascara dry out well before they’re used up. I also like to change my mascara regularly to avoid eye infections or irritation. This mascara does a great job of accentuating the lashes and giving definition to the eye.
Next up is a 7.5ml sample of Dr Brandt PoreDermabrasion (full size RRP £45). Containing salicylic acid this exfoliator helps lift dirt, debris and dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion.
The fourth product is the Whish Firming Body Cream (full size RRP £27), which alongside Shea and Cocoa Butter also features Green Tea to help firm the skin and improve the skin tone. It feels like a really good quality cream.
My last item is the Kueshi Shine & Volume Hair Mask (full size RRP £10.50). I’m not keen on hair masks as I find most far too heavy for my hair type, but I’m prepared to give it a whirl. If it rinses well and doesn’t weigh my hair down I may be pleasantly surprised.
This is a good box, if not the most exciting I’ve ever had, and overall I’m pleased with the variety of products and brands.
