May’s Birchbox theme was “Cupcakes and Cashmere” and I was disappointed that my box did not contain cupcakes or any cashmere items. I did really like the design of the box this month, it was very pretty!
Marcelle Hydra – C Energizing Hydrating Gel – I’m gonna be honest here, it’s been awhile since May and I don’t remember much about this stuff. I think it was ok. But clearly not amazing enough for me to remember it. For some reason I have a vague feeling that it made my face feel sticky. (Full Size $24)
Parlor Sea Salt Spray – This stuff had potential, but it fell a little short. I love sea salt spray and I use it a lot during the summer (too hot and lazy to do my hair). This spray had a nice texture but it smelled bad. And I know that most sea salt sprays smell like the sea, but this smelled worse. I can’t even describe the smell, but I hated it. Blech.

Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream – I’ve been really into eye cream this year (especially after learning that women should start using anti-aging/wrinkle at the age of 25!!!!). I currently love my Clinque eye cream, but this stuff was really nice. It did sting my eyes a little bit. My only major complaint was that the pot was TINY. Like I couldn’t even fit my finger in the pot, I had to use the tip of my pinky. That was super annoying. (Full Size $34)
Harvey Prince Hello Perfume – Usually I hate the perfumes I get sent, but this one was actually nice. It was a lot lighter than most Harvey Prince scents and smelled of citrus. (Full Size $55)
Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette – This was my favorite item in the box! I love love love the gold shade, it is stunning and blends out really well. The chocolate shade is also really great to use for a muted smoky eye. The pink and purple shades were VERY light and I have to build them up quite a bit to get the desired color. (Full Size $40)
