May Birchbox

It's already that time again! I feel like I just wrote my April Birchbox blog, but alas - the time is just flying by! Forewarning - I have to say I wasn't impressed with this month's box. In fact, one of the items listed on the description card isn't even in my box! Note to self: contact Birchbox about that. Here's what May's box looks like:

Inside my Birchbox are the following items:

Amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask | Full Size: $12-40

This lush conditioning mask is supposed to boost shine and help repair split ends. I'm definitely down to try this. I actually have a sample of this laying around somewhere that I haven't used. I have tried Amika's hair oil before and I'm obsessed with the smell of it. If this mask smells anything like it, I just might have to get a full size. 

Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste | Full Size: $6-10.50

An Italian toothpaste - MEH. I've seen this product circulating around the Birchbox circuit forever now - a.k.a. since I started following birchbox unboxing blogs over a year ago now. Nothing too exciting, but I'm sure it will eventually get thrown in a travel bag.

Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner | Full Size: set of 4 mini pencils for $21

This eyeliner is inspired by traditional Indian formulas and lasts for hours, according to the description card. It's hard to tell from the picture (and nearly impossible for me to capture on camera) but the color is a deep eggplant purple. With my pasty-white skin, I'm not sure if this will look good on me, but I'll give it a shot.

Runa Guayusa Tea | Full Size: $7

This is the "lifestyle extra" portion of this box. This tea boasts more antioxidants than green tea and is bursting with caffeine. I'm a tea drinker, myself, so I was pretty excited about this product probably more than anything else in my box this month.

  1. Hmm. Have you tried Ipsy? I was should be getting my first bag soon -- I had to join after seeing the contents of the past couple months.

    1. I haven't, but I've seen lots of posts about it. It seems like a really cool subscription service, but it is $10 more per month than Birchbox.
