I thought this box really nailed the youthful profile I set up for this subscription!

The information card. Notably, I did not (again) receive my Birchbox Beta items. I had a gift subscription on this second account, and was told that my Birchbox Beta would start in May, and now have been told it’s June.  Birchbox Beta is an additional $20 per month, and the May items were a Cargo Eyeshadow in Yukon ($16) plus Laura Mercier Rouge Noveau Weightless Lip Color in Mod ($25). If Birchbox is your only or one of a few subscriptions and you want more cosmetics, I would say that the value is there. If you get a lot of subscriptions, there may not be a lot of wow factor with this upgrade.

IMG_3549 Peripera Peri’s Tint Water ($4??) There’s no size on this and everything is in Korean, so it’s impossible for me to tell. I’m assuming that it’s 1/3 size! This is an adorable lip and cheek tint and the perfect Kawaii item for a teenager. I was just so impressed with the curation of this box for this profile!

 Number 4 Thermal Styling Spray ($6) Along with the tint water, this product is getting passed onto an actual teenager because I heat style my hair exactly 2 times a year. But I love Number 4 and all their hair products work really well for me.
Don’t forget that you can save $5 on the first box of a monthly Birchbox subscription (normally $10) or Birchbox Man subscription (normally $20)! Use coupon code BB50OFF at checkout.  Expires 5/24.

      It’s set to typical teenager – oily skin, frizzy hair, no money, etc.

    Yeah I’m a bit ticked at Birchbox this month, I didn’t get my Birchbox for some reason, I’ve been getting it for 4 years and received it everytime. This time it said it was delivered but never got it. I started a 2nd sub to get the beauty blender, and that box was pure crap samples and didn’t get the upgraded items or the blender so mad about that too. I emailed them about missing my 2 full size items, so I’ll see what they say. I was so excited about my box this month and now super disappointed I’m not going to get the samples I was supposed to get. I love Tokyomilk so jealous you got it! I’ve never received it in my Birchbox.
