May Birchbox (Canada) 2015

It’s that time of month again!  No, not THAT time, ladies.  I mean, it’s Birchbox time!

In the past, I’ve tried to sample the products before doing a blog post, but I just get so overly excited about getting my Birchbox that I want to share my goodies with you as soon as they arrive at my doorstep!  So, if I do get a chance to sample the product(s) before my monthly Birchbox posts, I will definitely share my thoughts.  Just like I did with the Beauty Blender and Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. And if there’s anything I recieve that I think deserves a post all on its own, I will do a separate post on those!

But for now, my goal is to share with you as quickly as possible, each month, the contents of my Birchbox!

No. 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray:  Nothing to special to say about this — pretty much your typical, non-aerosol hairspray. Holds well. Doesn’t have much of a scent so this is something I’ll probably keep in my desk drawer at work (the company enforces a ‘no-scent-policy’ for those that might be allergic to scents). Great small travel size for the purse too!

BeeKind Body Lotion:  This is a very lightweight body lotion infused with honey and organic chamomile extracts. It has a really refreshing, zesty scent and I’ll definitely be using this in this warmer weather. Absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling soft.

LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil:  This is a high-gloss semi-sheer lip colour in the shade Menatour (a purpley-pink with blue undertone). The formula of this is really nice — glides on smooth and quite pigmented for a lip gloss crayon. However, this shade does not suit me at all! I’ll be giving this away to a friend.

Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Wash:  If you noticed in the photo, this body wash tube is completely empty! That’s because I used it all up already! This was a really nice body wash — lathered up nice and rinsed off clean. It’s infused with marine extracts and smells so ocean-y and refreshing. Definitely a product I would consider purchasing the full-size of!

Raw Spirit Fragrances Desert Blush Eau de Parfum:  This scent is described to have notes of Austrailian boronia, ylang ylang, jasmine and sandalwood. Slightly floral and musky at the same time, this scent is ok, but not really my cup of tea. When I smell this, I imagine this would be nice worn on a summer evening out; not really a day scent if you ask me.

There you have it – my May Birchbox!

Thanks for reading!
