Birchbox May 2019 Unboxing & Review

I was super excited to get the May Birchbox because the previous months Birchbox's have been absolutely amazing, especially last months April box. This months box theme is 'Spread your wings' and it's inspired by trying new products. The boxes design is just gorgeous with the spring colour scheme and the beautiful butterflies on the box. 

Birchbox is a monthly subscription box and it could contain either 5 or 6 products. The products could either be haircare, makeup or skincare - or even all of them! The box costs £10 plus the price of P&P.

Birchbox May 2019  Review
Inside May's Birchbox 

Lord & Berry Line/Shade Eye Pencil in Black
Sample size 
This is made with kajal and kohl, both work together to make a long-lasting formula that glides on effortlessly! Not only is it rich in pigment but you can also blend this out to make a gorgeous smokey effect. I have tried this eyeliner a few times already and it's wonderful, just a little disappointed its not full size.

ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm in Berry Burst 
Full Size 
Now, this maybe purple tint but that changes because its formulated to change to adjust to your unique PH, how cool is that? Its formulated with mango seed butter so this balm hydrates and protects. It says berry burst but for me personally, it smells mintier than anything else.

Beautaniq Beauty Nourishing Mascara 
Sample Size
Not only does this mascara thicken, lengthen and volumise lashes but it also nourishes them at the same time, how wonderful is that? The formula is enriched with almond oil and oleic acid. This has a nice subtle smell to it which I am happy with as some mascaras have an overpowering fake smell.

Want to see the unboxing and my review on this months box on youtube? Check out the link below for me oepning this months box and my thoughts on it.

Mimitika Face Sunscreen SPF 50
Sample Size 
Not only does this protect against harmful rays but its also enriched with vitamin E which deeply hydrates the skin. It has a lightweight formula with a velvety finish. The best thing about this for me is that its free from harmful ingredients. All we need now is more sunny days in Glasgow lol!

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer 
Full Size
This is an award-winning pre-shampoo treatment which works with all hair types-adds elasticity and manageability, hydration and shines whilst reducing breakage. You simply apply this to damp hair for 10 minutes before rinsing out and continuing with your usual hair washing routine. I have never tried a pre-shampoo before so I am excited to give this a whirl.

Birchbox May 2019 Unboxing
Out of all the Birchbox's I have had in the past this has to be the most disappointing for me. The box was like a bunch of samples which compared to other boxes they have done and also even other beauty boxes it's just not great. I was so excited when I saw the box because it really looks lovely but the contents didn't make me wowed or anything, just a sour taste in my mouth to be honest.

I was very tempted to cancel this months box but I am going to give them one more month to redeem themselves and if its anything like this months box I will be cancelling for sure because for me it will be a big waste of money otherwise.
