May 2016 Birchbox

A week or so ago, I received my May 2016 Birchbox. This month has been better than the last few. Let’s go more in depth, shall we?


Let’s start with my favorite product, on the left. It is a Vera Bradley fragrance and the scent is vanilla sea salt. It smells amazing. I love a nice vanilla scent, but sometimes they can smell way too sweet. This fragrance has a lovely freshness and lightness to it.

The next product, is ModelCo’s lip lacquer in the color creme brulee. The color is a nice nude, but the formula itself is too sticky for my liking. It does have a nice fruity scent though.

The blue tube is classic face sport SPF 50 by Coola. Coola makes some excellent SPF products. I’ve sampled many Coola products through Birchbox and haven’t found one I didn’t enjoy.

The small white pot is an exfoliating scrub called the doctor’s scrub by Goldfaden MD. I had never heard of this brand prior to sampling it. The scrub itself was nice. It has a fresh, almost lemon scent. The scrub itself is very lovely. I prefer Lush’s ocean salt scrub for every day, but this was a nice sample.

The fifth and last product is a moisturizing sea salt spray from Parlor by Jeff Chastain. The scent of the spray is very nice and not overpowering. I am not a huge fan of sea salt sprays. I don’t like how gritty they feel in my hair, and this one is no different. I will continue trying the product and seeing if my opinion changes.

Overall, I am happy with this month’s Birchbox. I wasn’t happy with my previous boxes, so I was thinking about cancelling my subscription. I joined the wait list for Sephora’s Play box, which is a subscription box like Birchbox. I will keep you posted if I end trying that box out.

Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What did you get in your box this month?
