Birchbox - May

I love the opportunity to try out brands and products I haven't tried before. A monthly beauty box does offer that opportunity. Birchbox took over Joilebox a few months ago now and has really improved the service no end. I have been delighted with the contents of the boxes.

This months box contains:

  • Opi Nail Laquer - This is a sample size in a lovely dusky pink colour. It may even persuade me to ditch the coral. Full size £11.50
  • Murad hydro dynamic ultimate moisture for eyes. This is a lovely firming and moisturising cream. I shall enjoy this treat. £57 full size.
  • Biorganics Hair Therapy - hair perfecting oil. I am rather attached to the Liz Earle oil at the moment - see here, but this is a useful size for the handbag. Full size £12.99
  • Wei chinese rose foaming cleanser - high in vitamin C to leave a bright complexion. Full size £25
  • Wei pomegranate buffing beads - to revive tired skin . Full size £13
  • Kusmi detox tea - to boost energy and lower stress. I need that today. Full size £13.85

My only reservation about this months box is that they are all sample sizes. Usually there is a full size product somewhere in there.

You can buy Birchbox here.


  1. Everything sounds nice but I agree it's nice to get a full size product x

  2. I am really curious about the Biorganics serum, I think this was a lovely box! x

  3. Shame there was no full size Claire but the hair oil and OPI look lovely. I'm sure I have a sample of the Murad eye cream somewhere from a beauty box last year - not got round to trying it yet! Hope you're having a good weekend! xx
