I was more than happy to take a break from sorting kids clothes this after (so.many.clothes) to dig into my Birchbox for CEW Limited Edition Boxes! Birchbox just launched this boxes on Tuesday and I received them today (Thursday) so they arrived super quick!

And together with Birchbox they have packed them into the following two boxes.

Birchbox for CEW
Dove Go Fresh® Restore Body Wash

~Simple® Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($11.29): This left great on my skin and I love that it has SPF in it.  I feel like every moisturizer should have an SPF in it because I don’t really love having to double up sunscreen + moisturizer.

~L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara ($8.49): I haven’t gotten a chance to try this yet, but I love the shape of the wand and that you can see the shape of the wand through the packaging!

~Vaseline® Lip Therapy® Rosy Lips ($2.27): I am absolutely in love with this.  I have a few of them at home and think it gives just the right amount of color and shine without being too much.  And since it’s vaseline, it’s obviously very moisturizing too!

~Burt’s Bees® 100% Natural Lip Gloss in Spring Splendor ($7.20):  Ohh, I have never tried this before (at least that I can remember) and I am a fan!  The color is great, it’s not all sticky and it’s got all natural ingredients as well!

Burt’s Bees® 100% Natural Lip Gloss in Spring Splendor

~TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth Keratin Infusing Serum ($5.99): This smells amazing.  It tamed my flyways right away as well which was exactly was it was suppose to do.  This could become a new favorite because the price is incredible!

All totaled I came up with a value of $35.99 for the Mass Appeal box and I am super happy with it.  I only paid $15 for it, so I got more than double my money’s worth!  This is such a great way to try some of those items you see at the drugstore without breaking the bank!

  35. Jenny

    I use Josie Maran powder everyday. It is awesome and has SPF in it so I feel like its a little extra protection so I’m going with the oil. I don’t like those kinds of things on my face either but I will try it on my hair. I just got one as a freebie sample from Sephora so its ready to go.

I really like the nail polish color. I’ve been going a little brighter and crazier for summer, so my muted, regular color collection could use an update…

  78. Sheena

    The Simple Moisturizer…Lotion should definitely always come with SPF.

  144. Jennifer Pittman

    I love Burt’s Bees!

  146. Tricia Graf McBroom

    I would love to try the Argan oil!

  147. Stephanie

    I got these boxes and my nail polish was a deep reddish maroon color called “jam”. I really like it because I use it on my toes and if I only have time for one coat then it’s ok because it covers enough the first time that I don’t necessarily have to make multiple coats. 🙂 I also thought the burts bees lip gloss was very smooth on my lips and didn’t feel at all like a thick lipstick which is why I prefer lipgloss. I was pretty happy with both boxes!!
