#MayBirchbox Featuring #VitaLiberata,#SuperGoop, #Jouer, and More


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

May is finally here although it has mostly been cool and wet for Spring month but nothing brightens my day than receiving my Birchbox in the mail especially after coming home from another job interview!! I got out of my clothes and started to check out not only my selected sample but the other four surprise goodies in a special box designed with Keds!! This month's theme is all about getting outside for adventure and sunscreen/SPF awareness so everyone is receiving some form of sun protection! And now for my May Birchbox below!!

Inside my May Birchbox includes:

Goldfaden MD Doctor's Scrub (Full-size, $38- 75)

JOUER Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick in Lychee (Full-size, $18)

Obliphica Professional Seaberry Hair Serum (Fine to Medium) (Full-size, $38)

Supergoop! Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil with Meadowfoam SPF 50 (Full-size, $34)

Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion (Full-size, $30)

Normally I don't do "matte" formulas in lipsticks since most tend to be very drying to dry lips but this JOUER Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick in Lychee (Full-size, $18) was different in providing this cover without drying my lips out!!

Love the feel of this cream liquid which I applied on my lips with doe foot applicator and dried to matte formula! Plus, I love the cupcake scent which makes it very irresistible and the coloring flatters my medium/tan skin tone, too!!

I love trying out facial masks and scrubs and was very excited to try out  Goldfaden MD Doctor's Scrub (Full-size, $38- 75)!! Containing ruby crystal and hyaluronic acid (hydration!!) I feel like an Empress using a the luxe exfoliator removes dead skin and hydrates my skin cells!! Plus, it has very little to no fragrance which is great for those with sensitive dry skin that can't handle too much fragrance/scents!

Although I have seen other beauty and hair bloggers comment on this serum, I am finally going to try Obliphica Professional Seaberry Hair Serum (Fine to Medium) (Full-size, $38) on my new growth/relaxed hair!! I will post new details soon about my hair results!

UPDATE:

After shampoo and conditioning, I tried this hair serum as the only styling aid to work through my damp hair which has about one inch of new hair growth after the last relaxer touch up in three months!! I use a generous potion instead of the "few drops" for my medium hair type, comb through, and then blow dried straight!! My hair was smooth and manageable without a heavy nor greasy feeling! This hair serum is good but I will stick with my favorites from Birchbox including Number 4 Haircare, Amika, and Beauty Protector!

I have tried Supergoop products in the past via Birchbox, but this Supergoop! Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil with Meadowfoam SPF 50 (Full-size, $34) is new to me and can't wait try it out!!

I have tried several self-tanners in the past but I selected this sample back in April for my May Birchbox and I will let you know of the results of  Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion (Full-size, $30) soon!!

UPDATE:
  (Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

Today I tried this tanner on test spot rubbing the lotion in the section between the wrist and half-way up the lower arm!! After a few hours not a noticeable difference in coloring of my lower arm area but this is a gradual self-tanner plus it has a light to barely there fragrance which I love in case I want to wear a perfume after the application dry up! I will keep you posted with my results!

So far, I am loving all the samples that I have received in my May Birchbox and can't wait to try out the hair serum, oil spray, and self tanner in the future!!

Until next time...

  4. It is such a shame that my country doesn't have these kind of boxes. Other countries don't deliver here or it is too expensive.

    Great post! I love these kinds of posts. You never know what can be in it.

  5. Excellent box! I love Jouer, and I would have loved that liquid lipstick even tho like you I usually avoid mattes. Love the shade. I'm a big fan of Supergoop but I haven't tried the oil. Looks interesting. Good luck on the job interview!!
