Cool looking box this month.

Every Birchbox comes with an information card detailing all the products inside.

Cotz Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40 sample (0.18 oz.) &

Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick in Lychee (0.10 fl. oz.)

I love this lipstick and I'll definitely be buying the full size.  This lipstick is long lasting and doesn't make my lips dried out.

Coola SPF 50 Sport- Mango (.34 fl. oz.)

I have to start wearing sunscreen and this sunscreen is hypoallergenic and smells great.

My Thoughts:  This month's Birchbox included many items that are perfect for Spring and Summer like the sunscreens and hair detangler.  My favorite samples this month are the Jouer lipstick, the Beauty Protector Spray, and the W3ll People Concealer.  I estimated a value of $27.29 for the May Birchbox which is a great value for a $10 box.  I really liked this month's box!
