Birchbox May 2013 Review & Coupon Code: Monthly Beauty Boxes


Birchbox usually has about 30 or so versions of every month’s box. I was getting pretty jealous of other box combinations I saw, so about a year ago I signed up for a second subscription. I’ve had maybe 2 duplicate boxes, but other wise I love getting two birchboxes each month! (Check out my other May Birchbox review).

Mighty Leaf Teas (3) Value $1

DevaCurl 3 Step Introductory Kit – Value $5

I’ve heard great things about DevaCurl and I can’t wait to try this 3-step kit. It’s sulfate free, and it is supposed to do wonders if you have curly or wavy hair.

Isaac Mizrahi Fabulous Perfume – Sample sized – Value $1

Supergoop Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream – 3 mL Value $2

This box also came with a card to get a free full sized Supergood sunscreen with any Birchbox purchase of $35 or more. Just use coupon code SUPERGOOP at checkout!


Verdict: I’m pretty happy with this box. I paid $10 for May’s Birchbox and received over $20 worth of product. I’m most excited about trying the DevaCurl system. What did you get in your May Birchbox?

  1. I got my first Birchbox today which was a complete surprise because I expected it Tuesday. I received a small bottle of Beauty Protector hair elixir, a small jar of anti-aging makeup primer by LAFACE, a sample vial of Folle de Joie eau de parfum, a full size lipstick pencil by Mireneese in the shade “Perfect Kiss”. I also received a small matchbox of mini nail files which is perfect for my purse because I was in need of one the other day and didn’t have one with me. The retail value of the lip pencil is $26.55 (which is crazy for a lipstick IMHO) but I am content with what I received.

  2. I did not like my Birchbox this month or last, which was my first. Ipsy is much better. I have already cancelled.

    • I agree. Ipsy is way better than birchbox!

  3. I got that Supergoop CC cream in my box last month and I ended up loving it so much I ordered it in the full size! It’s got great coverage for being a cc cream and I just love it.


  1. Blush Mystery Beauty Box Review - Makeup Subscription - June | My Subscription Addicition - [...] received this CC Cream in the May Birchbox and I love it! The color is perfect for my skin…
