Whats In My May Birchbox!


Each month I get really excited to see what I receive in my birchboxes, this is my third box and it came within a matter of days, I absolutely love the packaging of this box as well! I love that you get mixture of body care, hair care, skincare and makeup so im able to try out things I wouldst have chosen before. 


Native Unearthed Activated Charcoal Natural Deodorant Balm
RRP £7.99
I have never really thought before about all of the harmful chemicals that are actually in deodorant and that we put these on our bodies everyday so I was very excited to see this product in my box. I haven't before tried a deodorant balm before and wasn't sure if it would keep me sweat free all day but I was pleasantly surprised because it kept the sweat at day all day. Firstly it smells amazing and has a fresh but strong scent. The consistency of this product is slightly waxy but once its applied you dont feel sticky which I love. I was also able to understand all of the ingredients on this product which I usually cant. I would definitely buy this product again as I dont think this sample will last too long.

Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
RRP £14.99
This product isn't something that I would usually use because its mainly for people who give themselves a blowdry which I dont because my hair would go wild. What I did like about this product is that it protects your hair from heat because when I do my hair I dry it with a blowdryer and then straighten it so I need as much protection as I can get. When I tried this product I sprayed it when my hair was damp and it has an amazing fresh scent. While blowdrying my hair I did see that my hair came out shiny and really soft. 

Greenfrog Botanic Geranium & Peppermint Botanical Bodywash
RRP £7.99
I really loved all the natural body products that I received in this months box! The first thing I noticed about this product was the amazing smell of peppermint, it is quite strong but I really liked that about it. I also love that this product is cruelty free, vegan and that its chemical free. When I tried this product my skin was strangely dry and this body wash helped to relive that. This wash also doesn't strip the skin of its natural PH meaning it would be good for people with really sensitive skin and eczema. 

Doucce Luscious Lip Stain - 611 Amber Rose 
RRP £21.00
I was very excited when I received this liquid lipstick, I really loved the colour when I swatched it on my had and it looked just like a colour I would wear. This product is actually called a lip stain which it does do, once the matte has worn away and even when I removed it there was still colour left on my lips. This lipstick was really nice to apply, it is quite watery making it easy to apply without dragging at the lips. This product also dried down quickly, the one negative thing I would say about this product is that it does show off your dry areas on the lips and does feel slightly dry. 

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner 
RRP £16.00
I think I have found my new favourite liquid eyeliner. It glided on the lid perfectly without me having to drag the pen. I also really loved the felt tip applicator because it has a thin enough tip to get a really sharp point but it is also thick enough to fill in a cat eye easily. I always have an issue with liners lasting all day without fading and this liner did just that, it stays dark black all day and it dries down matte. I also tested this product my rubbing my eye slightly and it didn't budge! Once im finished with this product I will be going out to get another one straight away!

Pin For Later... 

I have been really happy with all of the products that I got in this months Birchbox and it also made me more excited to try out future products I get. Have you tried any of these products before?

  4. The design of this box is so pretty! I've been thinking a lot about natural deodorants lately, but you always see the same things about them not being the most reliable. Great to know that this one works! x

  7. I used to have a Birchbox subscription and looked forward to those boxes every month. I had to stop it because I have a drawer full of products that I need to use up though! I love the look/sound of the body wash and lipstain - and the box itself is really pretty. Great review, hope you enjoy using this month's products! x
