May 2015 Birchbox Deconstructed #Birchbox

Thursday, May 21, 2015
The highly anticipated Birchbox curated by Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere arrived over the weekend. I don't think I've ever been more excited about a Birchbox, and this one certainly didn't disappoint. 

Here's what was in this month's Birchbox:

1. Miracle Skin Transformer FACE Broad Spectrum SPF (Received sample. Full size, $48)
This is tinted moisturizer that color corrects and leaves an almost airbrushed appearance. I am a big fan of tinted moisturizers, and this is definitely one of the best ones I've tried to date. I'm not too thrilled by the price tag though.

2. Kerastase Fondant Chroma Captiva (Received sample. Full size, $26)
This conditioner is a super hydrator and also locks in color for 40 days. I can attest to the hydration but the sample obviously didn't provide enough conditioner to confirm that it extends color for 40 days. I did like the way it helped my dry ends.

3. Kerastase Bain Chroma Captiva (Received sample. Full size, $21)
This sulfate-free shampoo restores hair and preserves color up to 40 days. Again, I can't confirm the 40 days with a sample, but I did like the overall effect this shampoo had on my hair. It felt healthier and more voluminous.

4. Beauty Protector Beauty Cream Body Lotion (Received sample. Full size, $16)
This lotion smells AMAZING. It's a light, floral scent and a smooth, silky finish that is quickly absorbed into the skin. I really like this lotion. Definitely going to buy a bottle.

5. W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara (Received full size, $25)
Finally an all-natural mascara without chemicals or dyes. I've been waiting for this! This mascara is further proof that you don't need harsh chemicals for an effective mascara. Love the brush too.

Bonus item: Miracle Revival Mud Mask (Received sample. Full size, $38)
This mask unclogs pores and firms up skin for a fresh, youthful appearance.
