May Birchbox 2011

Below is a review of my first Birchbox:

Juicy Beauty Green Apple Peel & Jouer Mini Tinted Lipgloss

A face peel to brighten skin.  I used this product once and LOVED it.  My skin looked radiant the next day.  My dark spots looked shades lighter! I was impressed.  Two days later I used this product for the second time and it was a disaster.  My skin became very irritated with red patches.  The tube does not have detailed directions on it so I did not know to use this once a week.  I think I became irritated because my skin was sensitive from using the peel two days prior.  It is a strong product and I plan to try it again this weekend.  Hopefully no reaction because this was the only item in the box I would repurchase.

A lip gloss that claims to plump lips.  I tried this once, it was a deep coral shade.  It applied nicely on my lips, but I did not see any plumping action.  Overall it was a good product, but I would not purchase because I do not use lip gloss very often.

Karastase Shampoo & Conditioner 
A shampoo and conditioner to add volume for dry and limp hair types.  I tried the shampoo once.  It was okay not worth purchasing in my opinion.  I will let Angela test it because she loves trying new hair products.

Archipelago Pomegranate Soap & Ahava Mineral Body Lotion
A dead sea mineral infused lotion.  I used this a few times on my legs.  I do not have much to say about this lotion.  It was a nice sample to try, but nothing I need.

A pomegranate scented soap.  Horrible soap it left my skin feeling try and tight.  I had to re-shower with a different soap because I was so uncomfortable.

Even though I only enjoyed one item I love having a subscription to Birchbox.  It is a small surprise to look forward to each month.  I am excited to see what June brings!  I hope you enjoyed this post because I plan to review each month's items.  Visit for more information.

Thanks for reading,
