May Birchbox

Hi everyone! This is my first Birchbox. For those of you who don't know what it is, for $10 a month (free, yes FREE shipping) you get a box of 5 mid rage or high end deluxe samples. Unfortunately they only ship to the U.S. :( Wish it was everywhere so everyone everywhere could share my happyness.:(
Box arrives to your mailbox every month between the 10th and the 13th. Pretty sweet huh? My sister signed up and since I do everything she does (and vise versa) I had to as well. I signed up at Birchbox and it was pretty simple. Just entered my card and then filled out a beauty profile so they would know the sort of stuff I prefer. I do wish their beauty profile was a little more specific though. In one section it asked what I look for the most, the latest colors, hair product, or skin care product. As you know I am mostly into neutral e/s, not so much "The latest color", so I didn't know what to put. I do like pastels though, cause they can be worn with red l/s!
This month's theme was Mother's Day. Onto the box!

The I chipped off so it says "B RICH BOX" lol.

Rundown of all the products.

Love how everything came nicely packaged. AHAVA mineral hand cream shown here. This is very creamy and leaves my hands creamy.

A blank card from

Full size stila e/s in Wisteria!

BVLGARI Jasmin Noir and Achipelago Pomegranate soap. The soap smells amazing! I have it in a soap dish on my bathroom sink. I loved the perfume so much I'm getting the full size.

My sister's stila shadow in Ebony. She doesn't like e/s so she asked if I wanted it. DON'T MIND IF I DO.

They're huge! Penny for size comparison.

I loved both shadows! Wisteria has blue shimmer, I DIE! Ebony is SO pigmented!

All the products they send in the box are available for purchase on their site, which is pretty sweet. Every box you purchase gives you 10 loyalty points. Also, giving feedback and reviewing each item you got in the box gives your 10 loyalty points per review. 100 loyalty points=$10 off the purchase of a full size product or you can use it towards your next Birchbox. Pretty sweet! So far i'm very pleased with my first box!
Thanks for reading!
