Interesting! I would love to try that!

The May men's box had a PLANT face oil that I snagged from the hubs to try and I'm totally swooning over it. I was considering the Caudalie detox oil til I tried the PLANT (plus it's cheaper). Hoping they'll eventually put it in our boxes as it's 100% natural and perfect for us ladies too!

just got shipping for BOTH birchboxes....while i'm happy that I should be spoiler free this month, the fact they were within minutes of each other means i'm getting dupes :/

I've gotten back to back shipping notices twice now since having more than one account. I have yet to get any dupe boxes :)

Just checked my accounts and have shipping on my main account but not on any of the others. No updates on tracking either but at least one is on the way!

I just went through all of the boxes again and noticed that they removed Supergoop! SPF30+ Everyday UV Lotion for Face & Body from this month's selections. I also saw that they have added this to some of the boxes...

Off topic, but the Captain Blankenship 'Mermaid' products are trending and IM OBSESSED. I NEED EVERYTHING. If it involves the ocean and especially mermaids, I need it. lol. Too bad I literally JUST bought sea salt spray last night (mermaid sea salt spray was the exact product trending), but I'll look at the whole line to see if there's anything else I'm interested in

I subscribed to BB for the first time last month using the BB100 code on 4/13. There were some issues in processing/shipping so I emailed them and they shipped a replacement box to me that I received around 4/25. I was given new products since they told me the products in my first box were no longer available. My original box is now set to arrive today with the products I was originally shown. I'm not sure why it took so long to process/ship my original box since others who placed orders the same day received them the next week. Anyway, I got 200 points due to the technical error with the BB100 code and 100 points as an apology for the late shipment of my original BB box so after paying $10 in April I received 2 different boxes and 310 points. I can't say I'm unhappy given how it worked out for me but I hope BB is better organized in the future.

 

Anyway, I logged into my BB today and my May products were up!!!

It looks like I got box 20 and will receive**

  • Number 4 Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner
  • COOLA Environmental Repair Plus Radical Recovery After Sun Lotion
  • Marcelle New-Age 8 in 1 Power Serum
  • PIXI Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balm

**Anyone know why I get an error when I try to upload a pic? I copied and pasted the pic from the image I have saved. It says "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community." This was my first time trying to post a pic after MUT transitioned to the new format.

 

While I am not excited about my box I think I will use most of it. I will definitely use the after sun lotion given my pale skin and tendency to burn and after reading reviews am interested in the shampoo and conditioner, which are the products I was least excited about. I am very excited about the PIXI balm as I've enjoyed most products I've gotten by that brand and love balms. I'm not enthusiastic about the anti-aging product but I'll probably give it a try.

 

I'm not sure if anyone else has their products show up but my box page did go back to the April products when I left the page and returned so I'm glad that I thought to screenshot it while it was up.

I think they are replacing that super goop product with a similar super goop product. The app is showing I'm getting one of those boxes that had it but in the app it's showing a different sunscreen that hasn't been loaded to the website yet. It just has a slightly different title then the one that was there before.

Got my box!!! Totally surprised me because shipping hasn't updated since the 6th, and it wasn't estimated to be delivered until the 8th or 9th.

 

And I think I got a 7 item box!!! I got

 

Smart pants all in one fiber gummies (2 pack)

Super goop every day spf 30

Marcelle BB Cream golden glow

Nexxus pre wash primer, shampoo, and conditioner

Pixi shea butter lip balm

 

Interested to see if the Nexus counts as one review or three. The three are not foils, they are pretty decent size samples!

 

Over all first impression- good box!

I saw a box on Instagram with the Laqa. It wasn't the same beautiful color shown in the spoiler which makes me sad. I guess I will just have to buy it, for my birthday. I think I get an anniversary code this month.

    • I’m afraid that this resource does not become a “breeding ground” for viruses that will then spread at the speed of light. Therefore, I advise all visitors to read the https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-free-antimalware/ blog, which clearly states why this or that antivirus and its characteristics are used. Just do not be indifferent to these problems and selfish.
    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
    • Yeah I totally agree  that the trends of fashion of clothes is growing with the passage of time so it's needed for everyone of clothes as make your appearance very obvious and awesome ..
