(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

So, I have checked out the preview and decided  to get not only my sample choice May Birchbox but also purchased the "Low Effort, High Impact" curated box as well for my review! Sorry its heading towards the end of May for this review but I have experienced several "highs and lows" in health speak that needed to be taken care of FIRST, but now I can now focused on this Birchbox review for you, my readers! So let's get started below!

I have selected my sample choice which is the Vita Liberata Self Tanning lotion (note: loved before from last summer via Birchbox) and left everything else as a "surprise"! Not only did I get not one but two sample choices but I got several goodies as well!

Inside my sample selected May Birchbox includes:

Davines MINU Shampoo (Full-size, $30) and Davines MINU Conditioner (Full-size, $30) 

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler (Full-size, $24)

The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes Mascara (Full-size, $22)

TOCCA Giulietta Eau de Parfum (Full-size, $72)

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

First of all, I love trying out Living Proof products via Birchbox on my relaxed, dry hair type but I have first hand experience over the years of trying to "air dry" my wavy, frizzy hair with any hair brand has proved to be disastrous for me!! After shampooing and conditioning with the Davines samples, I have applied the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler (Full-size, $24) through my hair from root to ends particular the back of my head where I am experiencing new growth and in need of relaxer touch up (last relaxer back in March but stretching til July)! It is light weight and easily coated my hair strands without heavy residue and made de-tangling with my shower comb very easy! After blow drying on "warm" setting, my hair felt soft, shiny, and light scent! However, will I get Living Proof products that best fit my hair needs and I don't do "air-dry" hair styles, period!

I have wonderful experience with this self tanning brand before but I selected  Vita Liberata Fabulous Self-Tanning Gradual Lotion (Full-size, $30) any way to give my medium/tan skin tone a nice look!

This is the first non-lip product that I have received from The Beauty Crop via Birchbox and already loving the wand applicator and color...I will post a future makeup post later using  The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes Mascara (Full-size, $22)! And I love that it came in a pretty pink tube!

For the past week, I have been feeling under the weather health wise and needed a good shower to feel refresh! I have good results from Davines hair products and although I relaxed not color my hair, I know I can use Davines MINU Shampoo (Full-size, $30) and Davines MINU Conditioner (Full-size, $30) on my chemically treated hair for gentle cleansing and conditioning with a light citrus scent and felt I was in a garden in Italy! Loved how my hair felt afterwards!

I love TOCCA perfumes and products so this TOCCA Giulietta Eau de Parfum (Full-size, $72) is one of the first samples that I have tried and love from my Birchbox with its floral, light scent!

I personally purchased the curated box because of the several samples that I want to try especially I have never tried a few brands or brand versions before!

Once the sun starts to peep out, I want to try out this  Manna Kadar Cosmetics Glo Illuminator (Full-size, $23) on my face, shoulders, and arms!

Although this is not my fave brand via Birchbox, I will use this  COOLA SPF 50 Sport in "Mango" (Full-size, $32) from my head to toe for SPF protection!

This hair care brand is new to me via Birchbox and will give you an update once I have tried  Ouai Wave Spray (Full-size, $26) on my relaxed, dry hair type!

I like Clarins and this little sample of Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen SPF 50 (Full-size, $43) will be gone after using to protect my face, sun or no sun!

So far I have been enjoying or look forward to try the products in both my Birchboxes, both the sample choice and the curated box!


Until next time....
