I received my Cupcakes and Cashmere Birchbox a few days ago, but I just got a chance to hit up the post office yesterday. I took a few days off from work, then went to Vegas, so it’s been a long, fun week full of amazing moments.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about my May 2015 Birchbox. It is less than amazing. I had high hopes considering they partnered with Cupcakes & Cashmere for May, but not every box can be a winner.
These products might rock if placed in different boxes, but together they are too much of the same thing. I ended up with THREE facial products, one hair product, and one mascara. I always welcome skincare – I love it! But I also love variety, which is lacking in this box.
Let’s see what’s inside:
WEI Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask
Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer
Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45+
W3LL PEOPLE The Expressionist Mascara
Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment
Am I being too hard? I think 3 face products is just too much, but someone else might enjoy them considering they all do different things. Ipsy really did a great job of curating products for my May bag. I think I’m just expecting too much for my $10.
