May 2012 Birchbox Gossip Girl

May 2012 Birchbox samples are inspired by the show Gossip Girl. Birchbox states that
 "This collection has exactly what an uptown girl needs for summer"
 Now, I do not watch this show so I honestly have no idea if these products have anything to do with it.
It came in a black box instead of the normal bright pink and the birchbox itself was in cased in a Gossip Girl city scene.
The next 3 things are the "extras" that were included in this months box.

A cute little hugs and kisses notecard. 12 cards retails for $10USD

Kerastase Cristalliste Bain Cristal Shampoo packet. Full Size Retails for $36USD
Kerastase Cristalliste Lait Cristal Conditioner packet. Full Size Retails $39USD

Heres what else was in the box:
Algenist- Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer-Full Size Retails for $90USD. This moisturizer uses a microalge compound to delay the aging process.
I have not used this yet but, the smell of it is awful, hopefully it does not linger when applied to the face.

Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide- Full Size Retails for $42USD. This is a lightweight serum used on dry hair to create shine.

Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 in color Glow- Full Size Retails for $34USD. This tinted body treatment hides scars and blemishes on arms legs and chest. I'm most excited about this product, I have heard wonderful things about the brand and I have a huge burn mark on my leg from a curling iron and I cant wait t see if this covers it up.

Color Club Nail Polish in color Clambake Coral- Full Size Retails for $8USD. A very pretty orange based coral color.

Color Club Clambake Coral

I'm pleased with this months box. I know alot of people received an eye liner but like last month I think my box was a little different than most other ones sent out.

       Have you joined Birchbox yet? Its only 10 bucks a month.


  1. Mine was much different to yours! I did a post on mine, but got the Dior mascara and perfume, a shampoo, and the Miracle skin transformer. My box was just okay. I love the polish you got!


    1. The polish color is pretty but I would be more interested in that Dior mascara you got. Ive never used Dior products, there a little out of my price range. :/

  2. I was so disappointed in my box, I got a gold color club polish but I would have loved this coral!!

    1. Aww Im sorry you didnt like your box this month, hopefully the products next month will be better :D

  3. There were 19 different boxes sent out this month :)

    I also received the three Kerastase products, they're great. I also got the stila liner, Dr Jart BB cream, and a Color Club polish in Disco Nap (pretty gold, but I'd have preferred your coral :) )

    1. 19 boxes really? Thats actually kind of nice because if you see someones box haul you know that it could or could not be the same. Still leave a bit of surprise in it. Im bummed I didnt get the liner though :/
