What is a Birchbox?
This is a monthly subscription, so each month you'll receive a selection of 4 or 5 samples to try for $10, these samples are anything from skincare to makeup and even accessories and lifestyle products, like chocolate or tooth paste. Those samples are from well known brand or emerging ones and mostly hight-end cosmetics.


If you like the sample enough to buy the full product, you can purchase it on their website.


The content of a box is simple, you will receive 4 or 5 samples, a card with the description of the content and even explanations about how you can use the products.

I heard about Birchbox on youtube. The community is very active and I finally succumbed because I love to try new things. I especially loved Ingrid's reviews from Missglamorazzi. When you watch her channel, everything she has tried looks so awesome!
But even I often agree with her, no offense. I have to say that this time, I was quite disappointed with my first Birchbox...

The packaging is great. Each detail is thought. It's very feminin and beautiful.

The card is the list of products of the box and it explains how to use the samples. You can also go to their site to watch tutorials and have more explanations about the products.

For this month, May 2011, here is the content! Samples, samples, samples!

The purifying mud mask from Ahava...a simple mud mask...no more, no less... I went to see the price of the full product and OMG, it's $30! Expensive for a simple mud mask right?
I can't say if it works or not because the tub is a single use sample. No fragrance, no result. Not my favorite one.

 The Jouer Lip gloss is cute, the color is pretty, a shimmery/glittery gold translucent gloss with a very effective moisturizing texture even the scent is good, it smells like Rose . But, what a tiny tiny sample once again! Look at the picture below. The Jouer sample has the same size of the Smashbox one, but compared to the Laura Mercier gloss, they are so small!!

The Glisten shade is very pretty and discrete it cost for the full size product, $20. I won't buy this gloss even if I like it. The color is a classic one, nothing particular, it's almost invisible on my lips. It's a simple translucent discrete gloss.

This luminizing moisture tint is nice, but once again, it's too small to see a result. It's a complimentary sample, it is not a part of the regular sample of the box.

The packaging of this soap is pretty, the soap itself is pretty but the scent is not my thing and I personally don't use bare soap...so this product is not made for me :(
It supposed to smell pomegranate, but for me this is not the scent of pomegranate at all, it much more closer to a grany soap...

This shampoo is also a single use sample too. I tried it, but frankly, I haven't seen any improvement, no softer hair, no shinier hair...nothing. But once again, with a single use sample, it's hard to see anything interesting.

The last thing was a cute empty card for Mother's day.  The pattern is pretty but I would prefer to receive another makeup sample!

This was my first Birchbox and a quite disappointing content. Samples are too small and products not suited to my tastes. This box doen't worth the $10...I only liked the Jouer Lipgloss but it is not a memorable product either.
I hope my june Birchbox will be better! I'd prefer to have more makeup sample than creams or other stuff like that.
