May Birchbox...

I wanted to get this post out today since tomorrow will be June 1st! Below is my review of my May Birchbox, which happens to be my first box. If you aren't familiar with Birchbox, briefly it's a box of 5-6 samples you get every month for $10. It gives you an opportunity to try out products before deciding to buy the larger size. To learn more about Birchbox, go here.

This month's Birchbox theme was based on the sitcom Gossip Girls. I have to admit, I have never seen an episode of Gossip Girls. I've read some reviews of other bloggers May Birchbox, and none of them got the box I received. Birchbox tries to customize your box based on your profile.

Inside the box. Very lovely presentation.

This moisturizer is amazing! Exactly what I need, to firm and lift. However, for $94 for a full size, I'll pass on it.
Next up is shampoo and conditioner from Kerastase. Not for my hair. Did try the conditioner and it was rich, but I'll stick to my Shea Moisture products.
Sweet notecard in pink and green.  I will definitely use this. I do love to send a personal note.
Miss Dior perfume sample. My review:  If I can take the words from In Living Color Men on Film quote, "Hated It." This perfume smells like old ladies who lunch. Too powdery and floral for my taste.
Ahh, I've been wanting to try Diorshow Mascara. I really like this mascara! Receiving this was a pleasant surprise. But... after I use up my sample, I think I'm going to stick to my orange tube Cover Girl mascara.
