It's Choice Time for Birchbox, so we've got spoilers for the Birchbox May 2022 curated boxes and samples.

There are two curated boxes to choose from, or three samples to choose from. Here are your choices:

May Curated Boxes:

One box focuses on skin and hydration (Hydration Inside and Out) and the other focuses on skincare (Brighten Up!).

Hydration Inside and Out

There are six items in this box:

PETER THOMAS ROTH Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream

Drench skin in continuous hydration with this soft-as-a-cloud cream that feels as thirst-quenching as a tall glass of water when applied to dry skin. The concentrated 30% hyaluronic acid formula replenishes and locks in moisture for up to 72 hours with the help of ceramides and potent hydrator ProHyal+®, making it feel soft, supple, and smooth. Antioxidant-rich elderberry also helps fine lines and wrinkles look less noticeable, so your complexion appears plumper. Oil-, fragrance-, and alcohol-free, it's suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

The Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is a luxuriously bouncy, breathable sleeping mask that smoothes and perfects skin, overnight. This pillow-proof formula acts as a radiance-boosting hyaluronic acid face mask, formulated with soothing, amino-acid rich Watermelon Extract, hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, and pore refining AHAs that work while you sleep to gently exfoliate and clarify. It'll quickly become your go-to facemask for glowing skin.

Number 4 Lumiere d’hiver Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil

There was a time when we were a bit skeptical about hair oils—the last thing we wanted was a greasy, weighed down ’do. These days, however, we can't imagine a haircare routine without it. This strand-saving elixir gives drab, dull hair a coveted movie star shine (plus a whole host of reparative benefits). Our oil-free days are officially over.

This Works Stress Check Kind Hands

A deeply moisturizing hand cream with Vitamin E and Shea Butter for dry and sensitive hands in need of relief from the effects of overwashing.

DERMA E Radiance Toner

This glycolic acid exfoliating toner tightens and brightens your skin while wiping away impurities. The result is skin that’s ultrasoft, smooth, and luminous.

Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier - Lemon Lime

Hydration Multiplier is a great-tasting electrolyte drink mix powered by the science of Cellular Transport Technology (CTT)®️ to hydrate 2x faster than water alone.

Brighten Up!

There are five items in this box:

Korres Wild Rose Night-Brightening Sleeping Facial

An overnight facial with vitamin C and wild rose extract that turns dull, uneven tone and texture into brighter, smoother, plumper skin by morning. This facial in a jar has a unique soufflé texture that melts into skin for intense hydration and brightening overnight. The formula contains fatty acid-rich wild rose oil, boosted with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid for softer, visibly radiant skin.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

We try not to pick at our skin or spend too many hours in the sun, but most of us will still end up with at least a few pesky dark spots. This concentrated serum targets those stubborn sun spots and acne scars. Activated C attacks deep-set spots while preventing new discolorations from forming. A blend of natural white birch and peony extracts promote a more even skin tone while increasing elasticity and collagen production for smooth, spot-free skin.

(MALIN+GOETZ) Grapefruit Face Cleanser

This triple-threat cleanser from (MALIN + GOETZ) dissolves dirt and oil, clears acne, and balances skin’s pH. The amino acid-based foaming gel taps naturally antibacterial grapefruit to prevent blemishes and exfoliate, while hydrating glycerin and sodium pca leave your complexion soft, not taut. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin, and rinses away completely—no need for toner. (So, maybe a quintuple-threat?)

Hero Cosmetics Micropoint for Dark Spots


The brightening patch. Blemishes like to leave their mark. Fight back with Micropoint for Dark Spots, a powerful post-blemish patch that uses 173 dissolving Micro points to deliver an advanced combo of brightening ingredients. Patch the dark spot every 2-3 days to visibly brighten skin.

Sweet Chef Ginger + Vitamin C Serum Shot

This brightening serum wards off premature aging, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation, giving you a hydrated and glowy complexion. The formula is packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins, just like a shot of healing ginger.

May Sample Choices:

If you don't choose a curated box, you can select a sample and Birchbox will select four more samples for you to create your May box. There are three samples to choose from; subscribers have until 4/30 11 p.m. Eastern Time to lock in one of the following:

Lavanila Pure Vanilla 3

Go ahead and work up a sweat—this all-natural deodorant won't let up or let anyone know with its sweet vanilla scent The vegan and cruelty-free formula contains antioxidants, soothing essentials, and beta glucan technology, which provide long-lasting odor protection. Aloe vera gives the solid its velvety, moisturizing texture so it feels great even on sensitive skin and glides on with ease. You'll feel good knowing that you can cover up any underarm funk and still let your skin breathe and rid itself of toxins (since that's what sweating is anyway) without the use of aluminum or parabens.

Dr. Botanicals Grapefruit Watermelon Cleanser 2

A triple-action refreshing cleanser rich in antioxidants and natural botanical extracts that gently clean to help prevent imperfections without drying out your skin. Grapefruit is also an excellent source of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant and skin brightener. It helps stimulate the production of collagen, the protein responsible for smooth, healthy, youthful skin.

Georgette Klinger Charcoal Cleansing Gel

Purify your skin with our gentle foaming Charcoal Cleansing Gel. Formulated with natural activated Binchotan Charcoal to draw out and deep clean oil, dirt, and impurities for balanced purification. Clarifying White Willow Bark reduces redness & tightens the look of pores, while Sage & Marigold Extract naturally soothe and calm skin. Nutrients found in Jojoba & Apricot Kernel Oil are transferred to combination, oily skin for a glowing complexion that is clean and blemish-free, allowing the Spearmint Oil to provide an energized, refreshed feeling.

My annual sub ended in April, and I don’t miss it. I traded for points 8 of the 12 months.

I chose the Brighten Up curated box. I think this is a solid box with Korres, Kiehls, and Mighty Patch. The inclusion of the Sweet Chef Ginger+VitC is a smart choice.

I wish Birchbox would include a makeup box too for a curated box. I have tried several of these products before.
