Another month has come and with it arrived a lovely Birchbox to not just help jump-start May, but prep us for all Summer long. Products that include skin care, body care, makeup, and a health wellness product.For the month of May I received four samples and one Lifestyle extra.
The theme for the month of May is Freewheeling. For those who are unfamiliar with Birchbox, every month their subscription boxes are centered around a theme, that they select for that current month to get their subscribers moving to have fun and experience.Whether it is beauty, fashion, culinary, health, organization etc.their themes are about motivating.
So, these are the samples that I received in my May Birchbox.
Sample 1 Gilchrist & Soames Relaxing Sea Fennel
I have taken a liking to this brand after sampling. The scent is floral/fruity the fragrance is similar to green apples and floral undertones extremely relaxing.When I applied this lotion it lived up to its name Spa Therapy. This product made me feel like I was in a spa. Gilchrist and Soames is definitely going to be a repurchase item for me.
Sample 2 Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
This BB cream is considered a multitasker. Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow contains rich amounts of antioxidants as well as aloe. This product they state works for all skin types.
Sample 3 Pixi Shea Butter Lip balm
This was one of my favorite samples that I sampled for the month of May from Birchbox. I had noticed this product in the store for awhile, however I had not yet purchased and when I found out that it was apart of my May Birchbox and it was full-size I was excited to test this product. I like that this balm was easy to apply and goes on smooth. Pixi Shea Butter Lip balm is a dual-purpose balm that hydrates as well as add color.The color I received was Coral Crush and I thought the color was beautiful and definitely wearable. I also liked how pigmented this balm was. The Pixi lip balm has been added to my shopping list for repurchse.
Sample 4 SmartyPants All -in-One Gummy Vitamins for Adults was the Lifestyle extra.
These are adult complete Multi vitamins that contain Omega 3 as well as Vitamin D along with other key ingredients. Smartypants vitamins do not contain any artificial flavors. I personally like these vitamins they did not have any bad after taste. They taste great and I definitely plan on purchasing.
Sample 5 Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser
This is a natural face wash, that promises to clear blemishes and brighten skin tone. The consistency/color is similar to molasses. Shea Terra Organics states that this product is like Mirco-derrmabrasion in a bottle. For me personally I like that this product is organic and natural. When I tried this cleanser it felted like my skin was getting a deep cleanse and after one use my skin felted soft.
And that was my May Birchbox. I am very pleased with the samples that I received. I discovered new favorites.
