Birchbox UK May 2013 sneak peak

Let me tell you now, my May Birchbox* is a goodun'! Look away now if you don't want any spoilers.

This month's theme is all around being red carpet ready and contains 4 good size beauty samples, one sachet and a 'lifestyle extra'.

Birchbox UK box

Birchbox UK May 2013 contents

I received:

OPI mini in a classic red shade - full size retails for £11.50

Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Facial Moisturiser 30ml (full size is 50ml and costs £42) - I'm a big fan of this brand and this is an excellent sized mini to find in my Birchbox.

Make Believe highlighter - Another good size product from a well know brand, it was a relief to me to see that this was a highlighter, rather than a bronzer as Make Believe are well known for their tanning products! (Full size starts at £7.50)

B/Attitude Body Souffle - I've never heard of this brand before but apparently they have a spa in Paris. It smells really good, feels quite light and is definitely something I'll use. (Full size retails for £24.00)

Doctor Duve eye cream - this is the only sachet in this month's box, and is a seriously pricey eye cream. It'll be nice to try it out, but the £115 price tag on the full size will no doubt mean I won't be buying it, no matter how nice it is!

Kusmi Tea Detox Tea - I don't really drink tea, so this isn't much use to me, but apparently it will help boost energy levels and lower stress levels, so I might have to give it a go!

I'm really pleased with this box. I know there is some variation with Birchboxes, and I would be intrigued to find out what you receive if you subscribe. I would happily pay the £10 (+£2.95 postage) cost for this box, but previous months' boxes I've seen haven't always been as good.

What are your thoughts?

This post contains a PR sample. My thoughts are honest as always.
