May 2012 Birchbox

May Birchbox

I’m still into makeup and taking better care of my skin/body, even though I haven’t posted about it in forevers. I’m gestating, not dead! Of course, between being tired/distracted and that whole “nursing school” thing, I’ve been quietly receiving my Birchboxes every month and not really using anything inside or paying attention to them at all. Boo, hiss. Let’s remedy that!

May’s Birchbox was pretty exciting, because it contained some Kiehl’s! I’ve been wanting to try some of the products for a while, because I’ve heard such awesome things about them, but haven’t gathered the shiny stones necessary to actually invest in any. Here’s the list of what I got:

  • BVLGARI | Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette Spray
    Inspired by luminescent crystals (so glam), this elegant scent combines notes of lotus flowers, bamboo, and Nashi pear. Full-size: $47 – $64
  • fresh | Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15
    This cult favorite has a subtle rosy hue, plus natural sugar extracts to exfoliate and smooth lips. Full-size: $22.50
  • Kiehl’s | Abyssine Cream +
    A longtime bestseller, this anti-aging moisturizer uses microscopic Abyssine molecules to soften wrinkles and protect skin from free radical damage. Full-size: $48
  • Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 in Glow
    Don’t settle for anything but flawless skin – all over your body. This tinted treatment erases blemishes and scars on arms, legs, and decollete. Full-size: $34
  • Birchbox Extra: Notecards
    Text messages are no match for handwritten notes on fun, modern stationery. Set of 12: $10

Overall, not a bad haul this time. I kinda wish I could toggle it so that I didn’t receive any fragrances, though. I’ve gotten one in almost every box, and I don’t wear perfumes. Maybe they’ve changed the preference page and I can get that adjusted.

Stay tuned for one big post featuring all of the fun goodies I’ve received over the past few months!
