May Birchbox

Have you heard of Birchbox?  To sum it up, you pay $10 per month and receive a little box delivered to your door.  The box is loaded with beauty samples!  You fill out a profile when you register, and they'll send you items tailored to your needs. 

I love me some beauty supplies!  And to be honest, I hardly ever buy myself anything since having Lincoln.  I decided I wanted to splurge a little on me! 

This was my first Birchbox, so needless to say I was very excited when the little black and pink box arrived.

This month's box was inspired by the show "Gossip Girl." While I never seen the show, I was pretty excited!!

So, what did they pack into this little box, you ask?  Here's what was included in my Birchbox.

*Kerastase shampoo and conditioner for fine hair--I'm REALLY looking forward to trying this out.  You see, prior to my thyroidectomy I used to have super thick hair that I cursed every day.  Now... I have super fine hair.  I hope this works some magic!

*Color Club nail polish--Get this.  The shade is "Disco Nap."  LOVE.  I really like this color and think it's perfect for summer. 

*Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm--It's basically a moisturizer, sunscreen, and serum all in one.  What's not to love? 

*Stila Waterproof Sparkle Liquid Eye Liner--Umm, holy heck this is a FULL SIZE eye liner that retails for $22!!!  Did I mention this only cost me $10?!  I hope I'm brave enough to test it out. It's a sparkly blue color.  I sorta wish it was in black, but maybe I'm just getting old.  Regardless, great product, and I love Stila.

*Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide--This stuff is pretty amazing.  It's specifically designed for longer hair.  It's a leave in treatment that adds high definition shine, and prevents split ends.  To sum it up...long tousled waves.  LOVE.  I just wish it came in a bigger bottle because this stuff is going to go FAST. 

*Birchbox Notecards--Hmm. Not gonna lie, this did nothing for me.  It was one notecard and an envelope.  Maybe it's just me, but I dont' see the "beauty" in that. 

All in all, I was quite happy with my first Birchbox.  Do you get Birchbox?  If you do, I'd love to hear what goodies you received this month!  If not, click know you wanna!!
