Hillary here- with your one and only source into the May Gossip Girl Birchbox! A little cheesy yes, but I am so excited to share this box with you all for this month. I got two of the items that I was hoping for and I am pretty happy with the other as well.

It has arrived! My May BIRCHBOX is here and I want to share with you what is inside! This months box is one of the special Gossip Girl editions and it's focus is to help any girl to ready herself for that black tie event.

First off there is of course the box and it comes in this Gossip Girl sleeve with the New York skyline.

Like every month there is always a card with a letter from the girls at Birchbox talking about the products of the month and the theme.

The first product is the Miracle Skin Treatment for Body SPF 20 in Glow. This is a tinted treatment that is formulated to renew skin and remove scars and other blemishes. Full Size $34
The next item is the SHU UEMURA Cleansing Oil Shampoo a yuzu scented cleanser. "Oil transforms into a purifying foam that leaves hair clean and bouncy". 
The packaging is nice and though it is a foil sample there is really enough product for 2-3 washes. 
Full size $55

The last two beauty products are my favorites and are the ones I am most excited about. They are the Dior Diorshow Extase mascara and the Dior Miss Dior Eau de Parfum. The mascara is designed to "add tons of volume and length" while the perfume is "chic and feminine" it is classic and floral. 
Full size mascara $28.50 & perfume $62

BB Extra:
Birchbox thought it would be nice to take a break from the gadgets for a while and write something by hand so they included these adorable note cards that come in a pack of 12  for $10.

I hope you enjoyed reading!
