Here we go! I was kind of excited for this box because it the theme is 'wanderlust' and it has to do with travel. In a few days, I am traveling to San Fransisco and then later this summer to Florida and I was hoping I'd snag a few great things for those trips. Now that I have the box, I'm not sure I'll take these particular items with me, but I'm happy for the most part with the items I received. If you aren't familiar with Birchbox, it is a $10 monthly beauty subscription service. To learn more, check out my blog post here where I explain the program in detail.

Birchbox just recently got a new logo and a little bit of a face lift on it's website. I really did like the old logo, but this one looks cool too. I LOVEEEEE the new style of the box with the chevron style on the inside. I hope that this is a regular thing and not just this month because of the launch of their new look.
This is London Calling from Color Club. I have received a few polishes from Color Club in my boxes before, and so far, so good. There were a few other colors in this Birchbox exclusive neon collection that I really liked, but I'm okay with this color. It wasn't my favorite, but I don't have any neon mint green colors in my collection.
This is the Love Smoothing Shampoo by Davines. I've never heard of this brand before, but this is a HUGE shampoo sample (plus the bottle is great and has a flip cap!). This shampoo has Indian fig and olive oil to help moisturize your hair. I like shampoos with wonderful heavy scents and this has a light citrus-y smell to it. We'll see how I like it.
Next up is a Lil' Lip Duo by LAQA & Co.. This reminds me of a Tarte LipSurgence. From what I could tell from researching, I think this is the color Lambchop. It is a bright fuschia pink color. I don't wear bright lip colors often and this would be very bold for me to wear. We'll see if I go for it...
I LOVE me some scrubs, and I was excited to see on my card that I got the Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser from suki. I am a little dissapointed in the size. This will probably only be enough for one use and I don't think I'll be able to tell if I really like it or not after just one use. On the bright side, this smells deliciously invigorating like lemon candy.
I received some 'beauty extras' this month in a little envelope and they go along with the Davines shampoo. This is the Love Smoothing Conditioner and the Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion. I am super dissapointed that after the size and container of the shampoo that these are both tiny little foil packages (especially the oil). I cannot imagine what mess getting oil out of foil package will make.
Lastly, Birchbox included these 5 postcards to go with their travel theme. Unfortunately I probably will not be using these. I'd rather send postcards from places I am currently visiting...
Overall, I am pretty happy with my box aside from the foil packaged samples. What did you get in your box?
