May’s Birchbox is in so let’s take a look at what’s inside!
Cool Classic Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea
This was the sample choice I picked this month as I’ve heard great things about Coola. This sunscreen is described as a sheer and moisturizing with lasting protection and hydration for an active lifestyle. So far, I like this sunscreen. It doesn’t leave a white film which I love, it absorbs quickly and I love the inclusion on white tea for added antioxidant support. It is a chemical based sunscreen so in case you’re sensitive, this may not be the best choice.
Davines OI All in One Milk
Described as a, “nourishing leave-in treatment [that] adds volume, shine, detangling, and heat protection,” this hair milk smells amazing. Hard to describe but it smells clean and fresh. I love using this when I detangle my hair and spritz a little bit on the ends when I straighten my hair. They also added as a special bonus the shampoo and conditioner from this line, which I also loved. It leaves my hair feeling so soft and manageable and again, I love the scent. I’m considering purchasing this. 🙂
This fragrance sample has notes of Tunisian neroli, orange blossom, and sensual sandalwood. I thought I would like this due to the sandalwood scent however this scent is not in my taste. The scent is way too overpowering and gives me a headache.
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm- Pink Blossom
Tinted lip balms are always great to have as they provide moisture and color in one swipe. I like the sheer color on this one, however, I don’t feel like this is as moisturizing as I would like. If I have any dry patches, I find this clings on to the imperfections but a little bit of exfoliation helps with that.
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner
“From the go-to UK eye makeup line, this user-friendly liquid liner goes on velvety smooth.” I’ve used this about twice and I do like it but in general, I prefer gel liners. It has good lasting power though I always use a primer underneath as my eyelids get oily. The applicator tip is thin enough to create a sharp line but you can angle it a bit to draw a thicker line.
Here are some swatches of the eyeliner and lip balm.
Overall, I am very pleased with this month’s box. 🙂
