Birchbox May 2014 Review!

Birchbox is a monthly subscription box featuring beauty and lifestyle samples. It is $10 a month and you receive 4-6 samples, deluxe sames, and sometimes full size products. Their point system is really good, and you can end up getting a lot of full size products for free. You can join here, so we both get points: 

[the product]: Whish Shave Cream

[from the card]: A shea butter-packed shaving cream in a fresh new scent.
Apply to legs, armpits or bikini line before you shave.

[the size]: 22mL

[the scent]: Acai Grapefruit - yum!

[my thoughts]: I don't typically use shaving cream, but I love the smell, so I will definitely try it!

[the worth]: $2.86

[the product]: 32 Oral Care Effervescent Breath Crystals

[from the card]: Breath-freshening crystals that attack unpleasant odors for a delightfully clean feeling. 
Swish around in your mouth until they begin to pop (that's when you know they are working!).

[the size]: 2 packs

[my thoughts]: Meh... they are like pop rocks... they taste good, but I wouldn't buy them... kind of a novelty.

[the worth]: $0.98

[the product]: PIXI Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balm - Coral Crush

[from the card]: Dual-purpose balm that hydrates with shea butter while giving lips a pretty wash of color.
Swipe onto lips for instant moisture. Wear alone or layered under lipstick.

[the size]: Full size!

[my thoughts]: I love love love it!! This was the ONE thing I wanted this month and I am soooo glad I got it!! :) It's sooo pretty and smells like vanilla!!

[the worth]: $8.00

[the product]: Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion

[from the card]: Rich in marine extracts, this paraben-free moisturizer leaves skin smooth, soft and calm.
Massage generously into skin, focusing on any dry patches like knees and elbows.

[the size]: 40 ml

[my thoughts]:  Smells wonderful!!! Comes out of the tube really fast though!! 

[the worth]: $2.50

[the product]: Nexxus Color Assure Pre-wash Primer, Shampoo and Conditioner

[from the card]: Um... I lost the card between edits! LOL 

[the size]: 5ml, 9ml, 9ml

[my thoughts]: I am seriously trying to figure out how to get these things out of the package...

[the worth]: $0.93, $0.27, $0.33 = $1.53

[total box worth]: $15.87

Not the best box as per total worth, but I seriously only wanted the Pixi so I am happy with everything else since I got that!! :)
