May 2012 Gossip Girl Birchbox

The box the products where shipped in.
My first Birchbox, I am so excited!!! And it's inspired by Gossip Girl? YES! I'm a little obsessed with that show. To anyone who may be unfamiliar with the Birchbox concept, it's a 10 dollar monthly subscription. You receive a small package each month with 4-5 samples of beauty products. You can cancel at anytime. To subscribe go here. Let's get to the unboxing shall we?

Inside the shipped box was the Birchbox with a Gosspi Girl wrapping.

The Birchbox.

beutyvblender | blendercleanser
The product shown above is the beautyblender, blendercleaanser. "Keep your makeup sponges and brushes in prime condition with this soy-based formula, which removed built-up bacteria and oil."  I have yet to try this but I'm excited to. I don't actually own any brush cleaners (I know, shame on me). So, this is something I do need. Only down side to this product is... uh, where is the directions, lol? I'm sure I can figure it out (EDIT: Website tells me how).

Color Club | Nail Polish in Disco Nap

The product shown above is something I'm very familiar with, nail polish! I've heard of the Color Club brand but I've yet to try it. The color they sent is called Disco Nap. It's a basic gold.

Dr. Jart+ | Waterfuse BB Cream
What's funny about receiving this product is the night before I was researching BB creams and trying to find what would be right for me. I was super excited to receive this sample. BB cream stands for Beauty Balm. It's a good middle ground between a tinted moisturizer and foundation. It very popular in the Asian culture. It's starting to make more of an appearance here in the states and with many makeup lines. It supposed to not clog your pore and be very good for your skin. It also has SPF! So again, very excited! I can't wait to try it!

Arquiste | L'Etrog

A small vial of perfume, Arquiste's L'Etrog. Sounds fancy! The description for this product says "Warm notes of citron, palm leaves, and myrtle combine in the transporting scent, inspired by the aromas of medieval harvest festival in Calabria, Italy."  I honestly could not accurately describe this scent to you. I'm not a big fan of perfumes (more of a body spray girl and even then I rarely use) and if you honestly asked me what this smelled like, I would tell you: Fancy old lady.

XOXO note cards.

A couple note cards with Gossip Girl's signature sign off "XOXO". I thought this was clever.

There was one more item that I received that I did not photograph. It was elastic skinny band called a twistband (it's pictured in the group shots above). I'm really not impressed with this. I may give it a shot but my hair is so short I can't really pull it back. Supposedly, you can layer them up on your arms to make cute bracelets? *shrugs*

Again, these were all the products I received in May's Bicrhbox:
Arquiste - L'Etrog
beautyblender - blendercleanser
Color Club - Nail Ploish in Disco Nap
Dr. Jart + - Waterfuse DD Cream
twistband - Skinny Headband
Birchbox - XOXO Notecards

What item would you like to try? Are you subscribed to Birchbox?
Each quoted description is from the card that came in the package. I do not take credit.

  1. Seems like a good investment so far. Nailpolish haha how appropriate! I have the actual beauty blender sponge made by the company that does the cleaner and it's a neat tool. Though I admit I don't use it that often because it requires wetting and on a daily basis I usually hurriedly do my makeup in my bedroom. Anyway let me know how the BB cream works out! - Samar
