Saturday Review: Birchbox, May 2015

Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream ($7.50)
This one has been showing up in Birchboxes for a while now and I guess it was my turn. I’m always happy to see moisturizers and always happy to see Benefit products, so this in a win-win for me. Plus, the little jar is cute. I like my skincare to be cute.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum ($9)
I do not like the way this smells. It is that grandma-rose-kind-of-scent that only works well in small doses in a hand cream. Not on my face, for sure. So, I would never buy this, but I do intend to finish the sample. It goes on smooth and I like the texture.

Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment ($10)
This is the sample I picked. I don’t think I’ve ever received a Macadamia product in any of my boxes before and I am a fan of the brand.

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette ($1.50)
These little Coastal Scents sample palettes are just so-so for me. I don’t really get excited about them, but they are great to travel with. The four colors can make all sorts of looks and cut down on what I have to pack. This particular sample is actually with me in Dallas right now.

Harvey Prince Sea Salt Texturizing Mist ($1.50)
This was another one of the products you could pick this month. Unfortunately, my hair + sea salt texturizing anything = disaster. This will be going up for trade. I was thrilled that this wasn’t another Harvey Prince perfume though. So there is that.

Total Cost: $10
Total Worth: $29.50
