The Birchbox for the month of May was inspired by Emily Schuman of the blog, Cupcakes and Cashmere. The theme that she chose was elevating the everyday, to bring out-of-the-ordinary elegance to your everyday routine. I was definitely impressed with a few of the items that she chose for my specific box, while I am curious to try others. First things first, I want to share with you what was in my box this month.
What’s in my Box -
La Fresh travel-lite Antiperspirant Wipe for Women
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum
CoTZ Flawless Complexion SPF 50
Harvey Prince Sea Salt Texturizing Mist
Chosungah 22 Flavorful Lipstick in Vanilla Berry
One of the items that I was most excited to get in my box was the CoTZ Flawless Complexion with SPF 50. With Summer’s quick arrival, I have been desperately looking for a BB cream that can give me both great coverage and a ton of protection from the sun. While most BB creams have decent coverage, the SPF 30 creams just aren’t enough skin protection for a pale girl like me. The Flawless Complexion, paired with my amazing Beauty Blender, blends seamlessly into my skin and the SPF 50 gives that whole lot of SPF protection that I have been looking for in my foundation.
Another item that I was super excited to get was the La Fresh travel-life Antiperspirant Wipes for Women. After spending a full day running around Disneyland, you will definitely understand the allure of being able to freshen up a bit. These on-the-go packets are perfect for traveling long distances. I think these would even come in handy when you’re pulling a long night at the office or even a quick freshen up between work and happy hour! I will definitely be putting one of these in every purse that I own.
One item that I am definitely intrigued to try is the Chosungah 22 Flavorful Lipstick in Vanilla Berry. I’ve been a little hesitant to try it out since I got it The color looked intensely bright and pink when I opened it, but I’ve read that the color is much more subtle when applied and a really lovely light pink shade. Sounds like a great shade to wear for the Summery months!
