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 my May Birchbox. And the print on the physical box is super cute, too!
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!
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!
