Birchbox Freewheeling May 2014

My Birchbox arrived and it’s time to unwrap everything!

The insert and this month’s Freewheeling theme.



First look!


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!
