Birchbox April & May

The April Box
I had been spying on so many posts about Birchbox for months, and I finally decided to subscribe last month especially as a voucher code for a free box popped up in my Twitter feed, so I thought 2 boxes for the price of 1, why not?
I'm a bit of a sucker for stationary, manilla and boxes in general, so even without the contents of the box, I was sold anyway! I was very impressed with my contents of my Birchbox and it arrived so quickly after I placed my order.

I had a hunch I would get some of the contents photographed above from reading other blogs. I was especially chuffed to get 'How 'Bout Them Apples', and after trying it, I especially want to buy the whole palette! I was however a bit gutted as I really wanted to try the Sweet Coconut and Vanilla Propercorn I had seen on most people's posts when a couple of week's later....

... came my free box with a pack in! I got a couple of doubles across the two boxes, but pictured above is the different items that came in my second box. The eyeliner by Lord & Berry is really good, and I'm fussy when it comes to eyeliners!

I absolutely adored the design of the May Birchbox. I'm using it to store my blog business cards in at the moment!

I preferred April's contents to May's if I'm being honest, but I have fallen in love with the Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo, and I will definitely be buying a full size of that! The cleanser by Liz Earle I liked, but it doesn't beat my love for my Boots Botanics cleansers which have been my staple for years. The Benefit Mascara was a lovely little size, which fitted nicely into my make up bag too.

What was in your May Birchbox? Post your links, as I love spying on what you all get!
