My May Birchbox Unboxing

Helloooo if it’s May and you missed my April unboxing – you can find it here. This time around, I decided to not do the curated box, and I didn’t even choose one of my samples. It was all a surprise which I had forgotten is part of the excitement of a beauty subscription. The theme for this month is Low Effort High Impact, and it’s all about summer products and spending less time doing our makeup and more time enjoying the sun.


The items in my March box are:

1. Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder

The packaging of this is so cute! I am used to samples having very lousy packaging, but this is such a classy product and something I think would look great in a travel bag. This bronzer is very matte which I liked, I don’t think a bronzer should always have shimmer. It seemed a bit powdery when I swatched it, but the shade is very nice. I think it would be easy to over do it with this bronzer, but can’t wait to try it out on ma faaace.


2. Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow

This I am not too sure about. I tried it on my hand and it definitely has a shade to it, like a golden bronzy shade, that I think would contrast with the rest of my body. I’m all for a tinted moisturizer, but a golden glow BB cream is just a little too much. Will let you know in the next few weeks if I hate it.


3. Number 4 Texture Styling Crème

I can’t wait to try this! I am all for hair products making my life easier. This is described as a “multitasking cream that gives flexible, weightless hold and a hefty dose of texture. Use it on wet or dry hair to create those perfect beachy waves.” I am dying for Instagram worthy waves now that my hair is a bit longer and I just don’t know how people make these happen. Help me!

4. Oribe Côte d’Azur Eau de Parfum


Nothing too crazy. I didn’t really love the scent, but perfumes are really hit and miss and people are very particular about their scents.

5. Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion

Okay, so I’ve only ever used a tanning lotion yeaaars ago and it was something like this, a daily moisturizer that would gradually give my skin a glow. My only fear with this product is how easy it is for it to be uneven and streaky. If anyone has any application tips, I would really appreciate it!



I’d love to know your thoughts in the products above! Don’t forget to like and comment below.

  • Is there such a thing as too much highlighter 😍?? I don’t think so 🤷🏻‍♀️What’s your go-to highlighter right now? Mine are @colourpopcosmetics Super Shock highlighters - especially Flexitarian. Speaking of @colourpopcosmetics have you ever had a package not delivered because @colourpopcosmetics didn’t pay enough postage?? Would love to know!
