May Birchbox!

So here I am, finally sharing my May Birchbox with you.  I actually a little over a week ago but things have been crazy here and I also wanted to finish up reviewing the April box before I started the May box.  This month Birchbox did a themed box based off of the show Gossip Girl which is a show that airs on The CW.  Now, I have to admit, I have never in my life seen this show.  I have heard about it but it didn't really seem like a show I would want to watch.  I was still excited for my very first themed box since joining Birchbox though.  The box was the same only it had a little cover over the top of the box with a cityscape view.  For whatever reason my camera would NOT take a picture of the outside of the box so I gave up and here is an image from Birchbox's website. 
This Month's Box
 Here is the inside of the box and the card that came with it. 

Here is how everything was packaged:

And here are the products that were included in my Gossip Girl May Birchbox:

  •  Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25+- This product is a tinted moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum all-in-one.  I have never heard of this brand so I was excited to try it.  I was slightly concerned that it is tinted because I am very pale and usually anything "tinted" makes me look orange. Birchbox says this is the "Swiss Army Knife of your beauty cabinet"- love it!  
  • Kérastase Cristalliste Bain Cristal Shampoo & Conditioner-  At first I was a little peeved that these were packets.  I got over it quick enough because I have pretty short hair so I thought I might be able to get a few uses out of these.  Birchbox says these are designed specifically for ladies with long, fine hair, which I don't have.  My hair is pretty fine but it isn't long.  However, this product promised to give shine while not weighing down hair, which I could totally use.  Did it deliver?  You'll have to wait and see. 
  • Kérastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide- This product is a leave-in treatment that claims to add a high-definition shine while sealing each cuticle.  I can tell you that when I took a quick sniff of this product I loved the scent!  It reminded me of lilacs which in turn remind me of the month of May.  
  • Color Club® Foil Collection in Disco Nap-  Another Color Club polish, good thing I love the nail polish!  At first glace I wasn't crazy about the color- gold really isn't my thing, but I'm willing to give it a try.   
  • stila sparkle waterproof liquid eye liner in Curacao-  I was very excited to see this product because I love eyeliner but I am not a fan of liquid eyeliners and I am definitely not used to wearing blue eyeliner.  I will say though that the color has a beautiful shimmer and in the name of trying new things I'm going to give this one a try.
  • Birchbox Note card-  I have to admit, I was pretty ticked when I saw that one note card was included as a sample this month.   What could I possibly do with one note card?  Anyway, it's a nice color I guess...
That wraps up my intro post for my May Birchbox.  Stay tuned as I try out and review each of these products!  Did you get a Gossip Girl Birchbox this month?  If so, did you love it?

  1. My May box was terrible. Dr. Jart's sample was empty, nail polish is terribly tacky, and I got cleanser for a beauty sponge that some people got in their boxes several months ago, but I didn't! It forced me to finally give in and cancel my subscription. Your box was marginally better--at least the eyeliner is cool.
