Well, we’ve waited long enough. Spring is here in full force and, along with it, a wave of fresh optimism. It’s thrilling to get outdoors and play in the brilliant sunshine—which is why this month’s theme is all about cutting loose and having a little too much fun.
We’re sampling over 70 products this month. Two that I’ll personally be toting around on my escapades: Supergoop!’s Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream (May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, after all) and Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink, a warm, sheer fuchsia.
In addition, every May Birchbox includes an exclusive shopping offer from Kate Spade Saturday, a new brand inspired by the best day of the week. I’m selfishly excited about this (their sundresses are my new weekend uniform) and know you all will be too. And stay tuned for an OMG with RJS episode in which our Social Media Director Rachel and other Birchboxers take you through their favorite Saturday activities (spoiler: lots of food is involved)!
Here’s to bringing a little Saturday spirit to the rest of the week, and to a bright and happy month!
