These are all the wonderful goodies received in my May 2015 Birchbox.

CoTZ® Flawless Complexion SPF 50
CoTZ® Flawless Complexion SPF 50

1.  CoTZ Flawless Complexion SPF 50 – Full-Size version costs $20.  This item is fairly nice and seems to match my complexion very well.  I have only swatched this item at this point, but I like it.

JUARA Candlenut Body Creme

2.  JUARA Candlenut Body Creme – Full-Size version costs $35.  This is actually my favorite item in the box this month.  I absolutely love the scent and it makes my skin feel very soft.

Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel
Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel

3.  Marcelle Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel – Full-Size version costs $24.  I’m not really loving this item.  I’ve applied it to my face as directed, but it makes it feel sticky and unclean.  Kind of beats the purpose of putting it on after you have washed your face.

Number 4™ Blow Dry Lotion
Number 4™ Blow Dry Lotion

4.  Number 4 Blow Dry Lotion – Full-Size version costs $32.  I don’t blow dry my hair at all, so this product was really pointless for me to get.  However, my daughter occasionally blow dries her hair, so I gave it to her to use.

W3LL PEOPLE The Expressionist Mascara

5.  W3LL PEOPLE The Expressionist Mascara in Black – Full-Size Version costs $23.50.  I tried this product and I have to say that you can’t even tell that I put mascara on at all.  I do like the fact that it is an all-natural formula, but I’m not going to pay that kind of money for a mascara that doesn’t do anything at all.

All this being said, I think I’m just going to cancel my Birchbox subscription.  I’ve only really liked two of their products and it’s not worth it to keep spending the $10 per month for it.

  1. That was the curated box you chose — why the hell would you pick a box with stuff you don’t like? There’s much less boring things coming in the (much prettier) cupcakes and cashmere one. It’s your own fault

    • I never received an option to change my Birchbox this month. I had the option last month, but wasn’t a fan of Mad Men, so got the basic box instead. I’m not sure what went wrong this month, but I didn’t get the message to change the box. I saw the Cupcakes and Cashmere one, but I didn’t really see anything that I would have liked better in it anyway. I may be picky, but I ordered ipsy to see if I would like that better.
