I’m having so much bad luck lately that even my Birchbox came with only 4 items instead of 5. They forgot to pack one of the samples (and of course the missing item is exactly the one I was more excited to try).
I contacted a Birchbox Discovery Specialist (fancy title!) via chat, and they said they will be sending me the missing sample. I will follow up here when the missing sample arrives.

For now, my review for the May 2016 box is based on the 4 items that actually arrived:
Blush and Bronzer Duo by Cargo
Classic Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea by COOLA
Coconut Crush Scrub by Kopari
Vanilla Sea Salt by Vera Bradley Fragrances

The missing item is:
Protect & Detangle by Beauty Protector


Birchbox – May 2016


I was not super excited about this box. Actually, the items I was more excited about were the sunscreen (because it was the sample I chose for May) and the hair spray. The sunscreen is tiny (5ml), and the hair spray didn’t arrive. (YAY?)

The cost: $10
Monthly subscription

What got me excited to try:
– The rewards program (you can get up to $5 back a month to spend on full size products)
– The ability to try products from higher end brands
– The fact that it is supposedly customized to your taste

What I liked in this month:
– The box itself, once again
– The idea of maybe receiving a product to help protect and detangle my hair (I still hope I will receive it)
– The facial sunscreen for sport (even though the sample is tiny – I guess I can use it about 3-5 times)

What I didn’t like:
– The fact that one of the samples didn’t arrive 😛
– (Oh, and did I mention that one of the samples didn’t arrive?)

  1. Noo! That’s horrible that you did not receive the Protect & Detangle by Beauty Protector. I love it and used it the other day to get a knot out of my hair. You’ll either love it or hate it. It does have a sweet smell.
