May Birchbox

I’ve wanted to try out a make-up subscription for awhile now, and decided on Birchbox as I see it a lot on other blogs. This is my first month so I’m not 100% sure what my thoughts are on the subscription as a whole, but I’m happy with this month’s box, and the print on the physical box is super cute, too.

Birchbox M 1

I was able to pick one item in my box, or rather the colour of the item, which I thought was cool. I would rather you got to pick the item itself, but it’s still nice having an option of some kind. Especially since mine was lipstick, and it would be fairly pointless to pay for a subscription and get a make-up item in a colour that you don’t like or that doesn’t suit you.

Moving on, let’s see what else I got in the box!

Birchbox M 3

The gift I got to pick the colour of was the Doucce Luscious Lip Stain, and I chose the colour Amber Rose, which is a nice pink on the side of nude.

In my box I also got:

Greenfrog Botanic Geranium & Peppermint Botanical Bodywash
Native Unearthed Activated Charcoal Natural Deodorant Balm
Marcelle New Age Precision 8-in-1 Power Serum
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

The product I’m most excited for is the Marcelle Power Serum. I’ve heard a lot about starting to use anti-aging products as early as you can, so I’m happy I received this and can’t wait to add it into my skincare routine.

I’m also intrigued by the deodorant balm. I haven’t tried it yet, but I will be starting tomorrow! I’d love to see if this works just as well as the deodorant I currently use, as it would be a great natural substitute.

So far, I’m quite happy with what I got this month and I’m excited to see what next month’s box will bring!

Have you used Birchbox before? What is your favourite subscription box? I’m still experimenting to see which one is best for me, so recommendations would be great!

Thanks for reading,

    I’ve tried Birchbox for the first time this month, it was a good selection I like how you can opt for more cruelty free/organic products too. The eyeko eyeliner was a big disappointment to me, it smudges like mad so good to know without investing in one, I’ll stick to my Stila one

      I like that, too! I’m excited to see what we get this month! Really? I loved the eyeliner, I used it for the first time yesterday and forgot to take my make-up off (whoops) and it was still almost perfect this morning! I would definitely recommend giving it another shot. I sometimes set my eyeliner with powder or a black eyeshadow so that it dries faster and hopefully sticks longer, but I don’t think I even did with this one!

      I got my box half price this month, since it was coming to the end of the month, I’m guessing? But that was really nice! Worth keeping your eyes peeled towards the end of next month if you want a deal!

      It was so cute and very summery! Yeah it’s a strange one but I found it really effective, I’m enjoying it! ☺️ of course!

      It’s so gorgeous! Yeah, I’m hearing mixed reviews about Birchbox but I’m quite happy with this month’s. Did you start a different subscription up instead? Thank you! x

      That’s such a lovely gift! Yeah, I like how you can personalise what you get as well. It’s a really nice treat, so you don’t always end up with something that won’t work for you! Yeah, I’m tempted to add some extras in and shop around their Birchbox shop. I love how subscribers get discount as well!
