MAY Birchbox Man + Julep Maven Boxes

Ahhh….nothing makes me happier than my monthly program deliveries! If you haven’t signed up for Birchbox or Julep Maven, you must! The way I see it is I’ve spent a lot of money on products I didn’t like, bringing me to the conclusion that high end sampling is the way to go. Try a product without commitment and with each program if you love what’s in your box you get free shipping and a discount from the respective site for purchasing it as a member! Smells like a win win to me!

For Julep Maven, enter promo code SHINEONMAY and try your first no-obligation month for just .1 cent! And the polishes are all full sized {$14 for one alone! Seriously} Hey, also don’t forget your favorite dudes! Birchbox Man just launched last month. Check this post out … I bought it for my husband and he said he’d rate the box 4/5 stars! He’s still using the products!

I’ve combined the May Birchox and Julep posts for maximum impact. Total of 29.99 for all the bliss you see here. A small price to pay for the reward I’m giving myself for making it through days at work with a serious dose of spring (summer, fall, winter) fever!

— Julep Maven Contents —

IT GIRL ….. my style quiz results and I’ve NEVER changed it once, even though they kindly allow you to change your style from month to month (or skip, or send to a friend for a gift!!) So happy with this program.

This month had Kylie – a magnetic polish (or not!). Beautiful color. I love the notes – totally sets the tone for the box.

My favorite box to date! Look @ those delish spring colors! AND sample size pedi cream. See the magnetic-stripe making wand?

I…must…try…all….of….you – on day one. Impulse control out the door.

Ashley – sunset orange with metallic micro-shimmer

Kylie – sultry violet magnetic polish with separate magnet

Nessa – bright lemon sorbet

My new girls – Ashely, Kylie & Nessa.

— Now time for the Birchbox —

The Birch was bound to be good with a modified box for May!

I have never watched Gossip Girl.  Since the show clearly needs special attention for the season finale to the tune of a Birchbox wrap… the contents are bound to be good! Simple logic, right? 🙂

And guess what?! THEY WERE!

— Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline {flowers bamboo pear} spray sample —

— fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment {rosy hue .08 oz size / full size is .15 – generously sized sample + same twist close bottle that I dig.} YAHOO, I love this stuff and don’t have this hue! — $22.50 full size

— Kiehl’s Abyssine Cream uhhh hello bestseller and wonderful formula! This anti-age moisturizer is good to use everywhere but I like it for neck/decollete/shoulders. .25 oz lovely sized travel jar — $48 full size

Miracle Skin Transformer – Sarah McNamara {glow} – tinted for body! Never tried this but I do sometimes mix foundation w/ body lotion so I like one less step! The smell totally reminds me of how kids smell when they are freshly sun-blocked up in the summer. I love that fresh/clean smell! Great coverage color. .05 oz. — $34 full size

bonus *notecard* in the back…see the white card w/ cute green border and pink envelope? Nice touch! –$10/12

The helpful box summary.

Now that I got this May Box-Fest off my chest ….what was in your box(es)!?

Eye Feast Inspiration

Create your own eye feast- let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.

Feast, and your halls are crowded; fast, and the world goes by.

Life is a feast. DIG IN!

Fools make feasts, wise men eat them.

He that is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
