May 2014 Birchbox

May 2014 Birchbox

Yes, it's that time of the month again and the usual pink box was replaced with yellow. Check out what was inside my box.

Monday May 19 2014


I’m a little late on this month’s Birchbox post because I had a 3 day weekend and went to NYC. Nevertheless, I finally got around to unboxing and taking photos. So here we go…

yellow Birchbox

May’s outer box was a springy yellow instead of the usual pink and touts an exclusive Kate Spade offer inside.

May 2014 Birchbox

This month’s “Freewheeling” theme is about freshness, optimism, and tossing out the rules to take a playful approach to everything.

Cotz Skin Tone

This first sample which was folded up inside my box is CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40, an oil-free mineral sunscreen. I received this just in time for the sunny weather we’re finally getting in Pennsylvania.

Nexxus Color Assure

With my color treated hair, I’m always looking for a great shampoo and conditioner. I’ve actually been eying up the Color Assure line in stores recently so I was excited to receive this trio of samples.

Nexxus Color Assure samples

This little sample set includes Nexxus Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer, Shampoo, and Conditioner which are supposed to help keep color vibrant for up to twice as long. I’ve never used a hair primer before and I’m curious to see how I like this line of hair products.

pixi lip balm

The other gem of the May box is a full-size Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm. Despite my love for shopping at Target, Pixi is a brand that I’ve never tried before.

pixi Coral Crush

I received the color Coral Crush. This balm is like a lip tint, hydrating lips with shea butter while giving a pretty wash of color.

Sumbody Salt Scrub

This little half-sphere sample is a Sumbody Salt Scrub Bonbon which can be purchased in sets of three. It is made with real Pacific sea salt and the scent I got was Jasmine Orange Blossom. I love scrubs and will definitely be using up this sample.

Votivo Candle

The Lifestyle Extra for May was a Vovito Candle in Azure Garden which is an earthy scent of prairie grass, blueberries, and hyacinth. I love burning candles and this one will be burned up shortly.

Kate Spade Saturday

In addition to the deluxe samples and as stated on the outer box, the May 2014 box includes an exclusive Kate Spade offer for $25 off $75 purchases of the new brand Saturday.

I’m pretty satisfied with this month’s Birchbox and I feel like I will actually use up all of these samples for once. What did you think of yours? Comment below!
