Birchbox May 2014 #1 Review

I have three Birchbox subscriptions and this is the review for my main account. I've gotten some pretty good boxes on this account, and I think this one is great!

My Birchboxes always seem to take a while to get to me, they sort of trickle in throughout the month, this one took 12 days to get to me from Tennessee to California. My third box came from Georgia, so why the change, I have no idea.

I received box #29:



I always am glad for this info card when the sample package doesn't actually have the directions for how to use the product. It comes in handy!


I could smell the candle in here before I even fully got it open, and the box was all crushed.


Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo - ($2.75) I do like their Beauty Protector spray for my hair to detangle, and I haven't heard anything great said about these but they do smell nice and they'll get used. I'm actually running low on my shampoo and conditioner so getting some samples will come in handy.

Beauty Protector Protect & Condition - ($2.75)


CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40 - ($1) I'm note really interested in using this, but my mom doesn't wear much makeup and always wears sunscreen so I passed this off to her.


PIXI Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balm in Coral Crush - ($8) For some reason this seems smaller than it did in photos, but I don't know why it's full size and perfect as a lip balm. It doesn't have a scent, except maybe a very slight vanilla scent. I love the coral color I got, and you can see the swatch below! So pretty!

Greenleaf Candle in First Blush - ($3.50) This candle is really strong, and I'm not sure yet if I'm going to be able to burn it without getting a headache. It's like a warm musky floral scent, but I can't quite put my finger on what it reminds me of.


Overall, this month's Birchbox had a total value of $18, which is great considering I paid $10, got $10 back in points when I subscribed, and will be getting $5 back in points for reviewing my products this month! Honestly, I think this box was worth it for the PIXI Lip Balm alone, and I'm definitely thinking of buying some other colors!
