“Gossip Girl” May Birchbox


I was once again pretty disappointed with my Birchbox, but of course, I am not unsubscribing only because I know once I do, they will suddenly improve, as per my luck! As I was opening it, I was pretty sure I was going to be disappointed, so I went into it with the right head. 

I did not understand how these “deluxe” samples were Gossip Girl-related considering the girls are mod and fashionable in the Big Apple, and guess what? I’ve never seen the show. EVER. I know I’m committing TV sin, but the reason I do so is because I will only begin watching it once it has enough seasons for me to go through it and not have to wait for a season. That’s just how I work.


Anyway, let’s get to the contents of my May Birchbox.

First, I got a perfume sample of Arquiste, which smells like flowers, and no bueno. That’s all I am going to say about it.

Second, I got a sample of Caudalie, a hand and nail cream, which was actually really nice. It had a gorgeous citrus smell. The only bummer was that it WILL be finished in maybe one more use. It was not greasy, and that was a good thing for me. 

The next sample was actually a full-size product. It was a LipFusion Balm. I *LOVED* the fact that it was full-size, but the feeling on the lips is heavy and I had to wipe it off. I didn’t like that at all. I will continue using my eos lip balms.

The Ojon Restorative Conditioner went immediately upstairs with me when I saw it, so I could go ahead and try it out. I love conditioners, don’t get me wrong! I felt a little annoyed about getting restorative conditioner because my hair is not damaged. It is fine, but NOT damaged. Oh well. I went ahead and used it the night I received it, and I was really, really mad about the fact that it made my roots oily and my hair flat. Super dumb.

The lifestyle extra I got was a notecard AND an envelope, and you can imagine how upset I was about that. Sure, Gossip Girl may be about eloquent girls, but seriously, a notecard??

So, that’s my May Birchbox, and Gossip Girl “so-called” box. Boo. I give it TWO thumbs-down! Did you get a Birchbox this month? What did you get and are you happy about it?



  1. i got my first birch box this month and i was almost disappointed with it, i got a shampoo and conditioner for long fine hair by Kérastase along with their Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide, the sample size was not nearly enough to cover my long fine hair so boo on that. I also got a small bottle of Color Club’s foil nail polish in Disco Nap, which was a nice color, i liked it. Another thing i got was Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25+ which i kinda didn’t care about, 2 uses and it was gone before i could even really decide if i liked it. the other thing i got that i really loved was the stila sparkle waterproof liquid eye liner in Curacoa (a bright blue). I thought i would hate the color, but i actually love it, it was also the only thing i got that wasn’t sample size and the formula doesn’t irritate my eyes like a lot of liquid eyeliners do. I also got the note card and looked at it like it was a joke. I also don’t care about Gossip Girl and have never watched the show so all the giveaway stuff if you answer trivia was a waste on me.

    • Hey, at least you got a nail polish! I was hoping for that, but nooo. Anyways, let’s see what I get next month! I haven’t watched a single minute of Gossip Girl, either! So, there was no way I was going to watch the season finale.
