Birchbox May 2013 Unboxing & Review

Yes I know I know this was meant to be up  week ago and things just got in the way and I felt super uninspired and had no idea what to blog about but here it is my Birchbox for May finally!!

I really wasn't as impressed with this box as I was with Glossybox this month because well let just put it out there it was a flipping amazing! There are a few products I will use from this box but some items I just find pointless.

 A sneak peak at the goodies...

OPI Nail Lacquer - Unknown Color. Price: £11.50
As we all know I am a nail polish junkie and do love OPI but I refuse to pay £11.50 for nail polish when I can get China Glaze or Nicole by OPI for so much cheaper. Its a super pretty pink so it will be perfect for the spring/summer even if it is raining like crazy here!

Elemental Herbology - Cell Plumping Facial Moisturiser SPF8. Price: £42
Ok lets just start with the name it asounds like its something out of Harry Potter lol 
Anyway I love trying out moisturisers so I am pretty excited about this, I haven't tried anything that is described as cell plumping though so it will be interesting to see what it does to my face. Also big plus is SPF although only 8 its still in there.

B/Attitude - Body Souffle. Price: £24
I have recently really been getting into body lotions and moisturisers etc and I will def be trying this out and see how it works for £24 I am hoping it is crazy amazing! For me that is a lot just to spend on a body souffle but we will have to see if it is really worth it. 
I personally not a big fan of the smell but if it doesn't linger for to long it should be great.

Makebelieve  Enhance - Lipgloss. Price: £7.50
I was so excited to see this in this months box I have received products from Makeblieve before from another beauty box and I really do like this brand and the fact that its a lip product is well awesome! I have worn this a few times and looks so pretty over the top of a nude lipstick gives a really nice glossy look with a little added sparkle. LOVE this!!

Doctor Duve - Anti-Aging & Firming Eye Cream. Price: £115
I have recieved these like 3-4 time before and havent used them and probably wont use these they will just get thrown in my sample draw. Ill be honest though even if I did like the product no way in hell would I pay £115 for an eye cream......Just Saying.

Kusmi Tea - Detox Tea. Price: £13.85
I know I have complained about this in the past but I really hate when these beauty boxes send tea out I don't get it is not beauty related even if it is a detox tea just no lol. I do like the tin though so I will probably keep that for my perfume samples or bobby pins.

So thats everything from this months box again so sorry its late but better late than never :)
