This month Birchbox celebrates 5 years. This month’s box read “PSST – you’re beautiful” and I believe that the theme this month is feeling beautiful inside and out.

What I Received

1. 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

Full Size Price: $26.00 (30mL), Sample Price: $6.93 (8mL)
Full Size Price: $26.00 (30mL), Sample Price: $6.93 (8mL)

As the product name states this is an under eye cream. I have issues with dark circles and fine lines so I’m looking forward to using this :). I really also like that it is 100% natural and vegan, it’s nice to see that all the ingredients are natural.

2.Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Liner in Colbalt

Full Size Price: $21.00 (1mL), this is a full size product

I really like the pigmentation of this blue and how nicely it came on when I swatched it on my hand. This liner is pretty precise so I’ll be able to create a really pretty winged liner with it.

3.Daviness OI/ All in One Milk

Full Size Price: $33.00 (135mL), Sample Price: $12.22 (50mL)

This is a leave-in treatment to add volume, shine, heat protection and it detangles. I love hair treatments because I am struggling with really dry and damaged hair. I am really excited to try this out. It has this sweet perfume smell that I really like in my hair. I put one pump through my hair and it instantly felt softer.

4.Raw Spirit Fragrances in Wild Fire

Full Size Price: $113 (30mL), Sample Price: $3.77 (1mL)
Full Size Price: $113 (30mL), Sample Price: $3.77 (1mL)

This perfume sample has a super strong woody aroma, and is very musky. This scent is supposed to be unisex, but for me it smells more masculine than I would like on myself. I don’t think I will be using this at all, I really don’t like this smell.

5.Tocca Esfoliante da Corpo, in Giulietta

Full Size Price: 38.00 (201mL), Sample Price: $5.67 (30mL)
Full Size Price: 38.00 (201mL), Sample Price: $5.67 (30mL)

This exfoliant is sugar-based. I love body scrubs! So happy I received one in my box this month. It has a super amazing smell as well. The scent is tulip and green apple which is actually a really wonderful combination.

Bonus! Daviness OI Shampoo and Conditioner

Full Size Price: Shampoo $31.00 (280mL) - Conditioner $37.50 (250mL), Sample Price: Shampoo $1.33 (12mL) - Conditioner $1.80 (12mL)
Full Size Price: Shampoo $31.00 (280mL) – Conditioner $37.50 (250mL), Sample Price: Shampoo $1.33 (12mL) – Conditioner $1.80 (12mL)

I really like that Birchbox included a matching shampoo and conditioner to the Daviness All in One Milk that way I can try them all out together to see how well it all works.

My Thoughts

I’m very happy with this box. It’s full of products that I feel I really need which is awesome, it’s like Birchbox read my mind with these products. I also like receiving bonus products in my box. The only item I’m not excited about is the perfume. Total Value of my box is $52.72.
