I received my May Birch Box this week. It has been very hit and miss for me. I do want to express the fact that I will probably end up cancelling this box, then subscribe to the Vegan Cuts beauty box. But, for now let’s get in to this months box!
- I am going to start with the thing I was most unhappy with.
Juicy Coture Viva La Juicy Noir
This is a $72 fragrance. But, the sample we received you can literally get for free if you ask a fragrance counter where it is sold. I am also not too big of a fan of this brand anyway, or this type of scent. “Attention grabbing scent features notes of berry and accents of honeysuckle.”
I love honey suckle, it is the berry I do not like. I am probably just going to give this to someone to try. Or toss it.
I really wish this sample would have had more in it, but I do really like the scent. I also love this brand it is cruelty free, part of farm to face, and certified organic. The full-size is $32 and per what I decided to do last month, I will be reviewing this product after using it more through out this month!
I was really excited to receive this sample. I have heard Tracy and Stephanie of Eleventh gorgeous talk about it a lot. The smell is fantastic and the sample size if pretty good! the full-size is $23.50. I will also review this as the month goes on. The information I was able to find also says it is cruelty free, which makes me happy since I am in dire need of hair products now.
I have wanted to try eyeko and I am super glad that I have finally gotten to. It is claimed that this product is cruelty free AND vegan. You will see in a coming up post that I have had to pass on most of my liquid liner, so I hope I love this!
It dried so fast and doesn’t budge! Yes, it does dry matte.
The full size of this is $30 and the sample size is pretty large and full. Perfect to test this out! Their website claims they are 80% organic, but I can’t find anything about a definite answer as to their cruelty free stance. Here’s to hoping they are!
What do you think of this months products!? What did you get? What are you most excited for me to review? Let’s talk!

I got the Detangler in one of my boxes last year! I ended up cancelling because I kept getting duplicates and repeats of the same brands. I’ve been pretty interested in Vegan Cuts too.
I am pretty annoyed that 2 of the sample were things I could have gotten for free at some place like sephora by just asking.

This month was only my second box but they have been such disappointments. I cancelled my subscription and I signed up for Boxycharm. I wanted to love Birchbox so bad but their samples weren’t even samples 😦
I think I am going to cancel as well. I just am not impressed at all. Honestly, I have been going back and looking at peoples past Birch Box Posts and I am not even impressed by those boxes.

Me also. I walked into it thinking it would be the greatest thing but I’m totally disappointed. I love my beauty box 5 but Birchbox is pretty much samples you can get free at places like Sephora as you had said. I figured it wasn’t worth my money.
Mine has came yet, im anxious to see what i get, good write up!
