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.

Value $8.00

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.

SmartyPants Vitamins

Sample 4  SmartyPants  All -in-One Gummy Vitamins for Adults was the Lifestyle extra.

Value $29.95

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.

Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Pore Facial Cleanser

Sample 5   Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser

Value $16.00

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.
