May 2015 Birchbox

Sorry for the delay again, medical issues cropping up plus doing stuff to pay the bills. But let's get back to Birchbox recaps, shall we? This is May of this year, so we're only four months behind now!

Very happy @birchbox this month. So excited to try the Harvey Prince sea salt spray. And this soap smells amazing!

TokyoMilk by Margot Elena Bon Bon Shea Butter Rich Lotion: This lotion is heavily scented, and a tiny little dab of it goes a very long way, but it rubs in extremely smoothly. I do really like the scent, but it's strong and a bit deep for every day. It's absolutely lovely, but I think it might be best for like, before a night out in place of perfume.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate: Honestly, I don't have any idea what the point of this stuff is. They already want you to put on like five products on your face every day, and now this random other thing BEFORE your serum? I've just used it instead of a serum, and I guess it's fine for that, but honestly, $95 for some random extra thing they're trying to convince you that you need to do extra? No thanks.

Sumbody Body Soaps : This soap smelled really lovely, I quite liked the scent, but I just hate bar soap and don't use it. But this company also does salt scrubs and stuff, I'll likely buy some of those because I did love the scent.

Coastal Scents® Revealed 3 Palette: This little sampler set has actually become the set of eyeshadow I keep in my desk at work because it's a nice set of fun but subtle colors that I can put on with almost any outfit. And since I oversleep a lot, it ends up being what I wear most days. I'm really pleased with it, when I run out of the sample I'll likely get the palette.

Harvey Prince Sea Salt Texturizing Mist: This was my sample choice this month, because I've been wanting to try a good sea salt spray, and because I love the scent of Hello by Harvey Prince. I was very happy with this actually, the scent is nice and it really does give my hair a lot of shape and texture. Sometimes too much, but once I got the hang of it, it was really quite nice. I'm a fan.
