Rose: May Birchbox

I decided to reinstate my Birchbox subscription. I started to miss those cute monthly samples and, at $10/box, it’s a pretty good deal. Plus, I’ve recently started getting into skin care — big time. It occurred to me that I’m 30 years old and am not really preparing for the wrinkles that are sure to follow. So, after all of those disclaimers, that’s why I got Birchbox again.


This month’s box was really cute and had a lot of goodies that I’ve been using.


Among my favorite items: Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream, Harvey Prince Sincerely perfume and CoTZ® Flawless Complexion SPF 50. I didn’t really care for (or need) the hairspray or eyeliner, so I won’t bother reviewing them.


Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream: Ever since I started using the eye cream, I’ve noticed a big difference in my under eye circles and crow’s-feet. I feel like it softens these areas of my face and goes on very nicely. Of the eye creams I’ve tried, this one has been one of my favorites.

Harvey Prince Sincerely perfume: The perfume might be the best thing from this box. It smells absolutely delicious! I’ve been wearing the same perfume for months now — a gift from my stepbrother (Bryant Park West). It was fun to change things up with a new fragrance. (Sidenote: Just don’t spray it on and then put ice cubes in your water bottle. Your H20 will taste like flowers all day long.)

CoTZ® Flawless Complexion SPF 50: I’ve been sparingly using the SPF 50 Complexion cream. I like it, too, but haven’t used it as much as the other products. It has a nice tint and is lightweight. I’m not sure I’d buy a whole container, but it’s great for a sample.

Overall, this box gets an A-.

I was pretty happy with this month’s box. I just need to figure out what to do with this hairspray + eyeliner!
