Birchbox - May 2013

This is my May shipment from a monthly cosmetic sample subscription called Birchbox.  In the box this month were the following product samples:
  1. Whish Body - Shave Cream in a blueberry scent
  2. Beauty Protector - protect and detangle leave in conditioner
  3. Amika - oil treatment for the hair with sea buckthorn berry and argan oil
  4. Amika - nourishing mask with sea buckthorn berry
  5. Isaac Mizrahi - Fabulous perfume sample
  6. Supergoop - CC Cream, daily correct with SPF 35 sunscreen
The shave cream smells really good.  The Beauty Protector is too oily for my hair.  I haven't tried the Amika samples yet.  The perfume smells good, but not something I would purchase.  It features mandarin, jasmine and vanilla.  The Supergoop is too dark for my skin tone.  I find the Birchboxes are hit and miss for me.  I liked my last one and didn't like the one before that and I don't care for this one.  I don't even think this box is worth the $10.  I will try another box next month and if that one is another miss, I will unsubscribe yet again.  I prefer their competition, Ipsy, as many reviewers agree.  Ipsy is a much better value with larger samples and even includes full size products and has more hits than misses.  What products did you receive in your Birchbox and are you happy with the samples?
