Inserts that were included, to get them out of the way. 😉

Coola Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion. I love the organic ingredients in this, and althought I hope I don’t need it, it’s nice to have this! Description: “This soothing lotion uses agave to moisturize, protect, and calm any post-sun woes. Apply liberally to face and body after time in the sun.”

Marcelle 8in1 Power Serum. Description: “This peptide-packed antiaging gel hydrates, firms, lifts, and plumps fine lines. Once a day, smooth over clean face and neck. You’ll see results in just one week of use.” I’m saving this for a friend or family, since I stick to Juice Beauty on my face usually.

N4 Fleurs De Temps Volumizing Shampoo sample bottle, and Volumizing conditioner packet. Description: “This sulfate-free, botanical-rich cleanser creates bouncy, bodacious hair. Dispense into hands and work into a lather before massaging into scalp. Rinse away.” They didn’t include anything about a conditioner sample packet being included but it was. I might try the conditioner out but I’m very picky about shampoo. I tend to use my Wen conditioning cleanser which takes care of both products.

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Pixi Pink. It’s a fun pop of pink that is bright enough to show but no where near as threateningly bright as it appears! It goes on smoothly too which is nice. Description: “Dual-purpose balm that hydrates with shea butter while giving lips a pretty wash of color. Swipe onto lips for instant moisture. Wear alone or layered under lipstick.”

There was a Lifestyle Extra sample of SmartyPants All-in-One Fiber Gummies for Weight Management. These had a fun chewier gummy texture to them and the flavor was a little more on the vitamin-y side. It was an interesting sample, but not something I feel I need to buy. Description: “These nutritious, natural gummies come packed with fiber to fill you up, and no caffeine. Chew six vitamins for a daily dose of goodness – including omega-3 and vitamin D.”

Overall not the best box, but not a bad one either. I enjoyed the Pixi shea butter lip balm the best, and the pink shade is going to be fun to use this summer!
