Birchbox – May 2014

What a lovely Mother’s Day weekend surprise!  My May 2014 Birchbox arrived yesterday and it was just the ray of sunshine I needed before the snow storm hit. That’s right folks…it’s May 11 and we are expected to get four-nine inches of snow. Thanks Mother Nature…how thoughtful of you!

What am I thinking….

Seven samples in this box!  I saw the May sneak peak video and was hoping I’d get the Pixi lip balm so I’m really happy about that!  I was a little bummed to get another Supergoop!® product.  Although they are different, they are both sunscreens…I guess I’m set for summer!  Overall, I’m still pretty pleased with what I’ve been getting!  Keep it up, Birchbox!
