Birchbox - May 2015


Today I've got a sneak peak of the May 2015 Birchbox* to show you. Obviously this post contains spoilers, so if you're already subscribed and want to keep your box a surprise for now then stop scrolling!

The theme of the May 2015 Birchbox is 'Free Your Mind' with the aim of getting your creativity flowing, particularly on your nails!

This month's box features the amazing WAH London. Birchbox teamed up with WAH London for the 'Pick Your Sample' campaign to offer subscribers the choice between press on false nails, a nail art pen, or a nail polish from the WAH range. If you're already subscribed to Birchbox you should have already picked your sample, if you haven't then unfortunately you've missed your chance now. New subscribers still get to pick their sample upon subscribing though.

So, in my box I received...

  • WAH London Press On Nails
  • Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturiser
  • RMK Point Make-Up Remover
  • Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rouge
  • Parlour Moisturising Sea Salt Spray
  • EXTRA - Number 4 Lumiere d'hived Reconstructing Masque
  • EXTRA - Colouring Pencils (more on that later!)

WAH London Press on Nails
£9.00, 24 nails.

My favourite product in the box is obviously the WAH London Press on Nails. I've only tried their nail art pens and clean-up brush so far, but from what I've tried I really like the brand. As I'm currently in the middle of exams I have no time to do my own nail art, so I'm made up to have these press on nails - I love the design (it's called Going Up/Going Down). The fact that they come with adhesive tabs is great because I'm really not a fan of nail glue!

I was also very excited to find Caudalie Vinoperfect Tinted Moisturiser in my box. The brand is too expensive for me to buy so this very generously sized sample (15 mL) is very much appreciated!

I'm looking forward to using the sea salt spray on my hair through summer for beach-ready hair. My hair is very flat and lifeless so this should give it some texture without me having to do very much!

The little sachet is Number 4 Lumier d'Hiver Reconstructing Masque. I have their leave-in conditioner which is fantastic (read my review here).

I hadn't heard of Mirenesse before. I tried this matte lipstick yesterday and loved it; the formula is creamy and smooth and so easy to apply. The colour is very bold, and I'm not usually one for bold lips, but I really like it, and so does my boyfriend which is great! The shade I received was 'Paris' - a very pigmented purple-pink.

The colouring pencils are a little added extra. The lid of the box is for you to colour in (going along with the Free Your Mind and creativity theme). You can also enter your coloured-in box into a competition on the Birchbox blog.

Overall I think this is a a really good box - definitely one of the best boxes I've had, because I know I'm going to get good use out of every product and you really get your money's worth this month.

You can get your own Birchbox from the Birchbox website for £10 (plus £2.95 delivery). Don't forget, new subscribers get to pick their full-size WAH London sample too!

  1. The press on nails look fab, I opted for the nail polish. I also love the mirenesse lip colour! Great review :)

    1. Thanks Beth :) The lip colour is amazing. I'd never buy it myself because it's not what I usually go for, but that's what I love about beauty boxes, they make you be more adventurous and try new things :)

  2. I love this months box! I'm a huge fan of colouring in and have been doing it for a few months now, so I think it's really clever of them to jump on the trend and leave the box white so you can colour it in. I think my favourite product so far (maybe because it's the only one I've tried!) is the Mirenesse liquid lipstick, but it would have been nice if it was in a slightly more spring appropriate shade x

    1. Yeah I think it's a great idea. I still haven't got round to colouring mine in yet! I love the lipstick, it's not a shade I'd usually go for but I'm so glad I got to try it because I love it! x
