Birchbox of the month of May
Inspiration “The Muralla Roja”
The design of the box of this month is inspired by a place that I love: “The Muralla Roja” of the architect Ricardo Bofill conceived in 1973 in Calp, Spain.
It is a complex of 50 apartments with stairs and common areas entangled and colored in shades ranging from earth red to pale blue. The highlight of the complex is the pool shaped cross on one of its roofs.
It is atypical and magical, a real gem of architecture overlooking the Mediterranean Sea which makes it a place well known to photographers and Instagram because very photogenic.

In the box “Between the lines”, we have:
It’s love. a daily moisturizer that makes me glow … everyday glow lotion
It is a self-tanning cream, more exactly a “progressive tanning body moisturizer”. Personally, I have never liked self-tanning creams, having a clear skin I’m too scared to finish orange with zebra.
They can promise that with this cream, to be put daily, we avoid traces … not sure that I try the experience.
Knowing that it is for the whole body for everyday use, I find the tube in the box really small, only 30ml. On the back of the tube, it specifies the application with a b.tan tanning glove that is not supplied in the box. Pity.
We always need a tweezers! Other than that, the color is nice, what else can I say? Nothing 🙂
The restorative care deeply hydrates and nourishes the hair thanks to coconut oil and wheat proteins. This is a treatment to apply to dry hair without rinsing. It looks good, it has no particular smell.
A small highlighter powder, pearly and iridescent color: Moonshine, to apply with a brush.
For having tested it several times, it is really top, it gives a slight glow perfect and can act as a natural blush. You can apply it at the cheekbones, under the eyebrows, along the nose and above the Cupid’s bow of the lips.
Cellular Water Spray
This mist is refreshing, the small size is ideal for summer.
It is said that it is a “patented water that acts directly on the cells of the skin to moisturize, energize and optimize the application of care.” Sincerely, a water fogger is most certainly as good in my opinion.
In the end, only the self-tanning cream really does not suit me.
I will still subscribe, but not sure that I remain more than a few months. As I do not use all products and they do not suit me all, I find it a pity and not very ecological.
