This month we’re celebrating the arrival of sunny, carefree days (hooray) with a lineup of fun, versatile products. We took some of this month’s samples for a spin right here in NYC—see them in action in our sneak peek video!.
The five featured products are just some of the many samples going out in the May 2014 Birchboxes. Learn more about them below—and if you’re not yet a subscriber, there’s still time to get in on the fun!
Before you break out that bikini (or retro one-piece), make sure you stock up on this SPF. Supergoop’s antioxidant-rich formula absorbs quickly and dries completely matte. It provides broad-spectrum protection and lasts for up to 80 minutes in water. Since it’s free of synthetic fragrances and parabens, it’s great for those with sensitive skin.
This multitasking wonder product is a primer, anti-aging serum, moisturizer, and light foundation all in one. Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow immediately hydrates skin and also calms any inflammation or redness soothing aloe and chamomile. Plus, the lightweight formula is packed with tiny, light-reflecting pigments that give skin an I-got eight-hours-of-sleep radiance.
Swap out that so-so drugstore balm for this moisturizing formula, which has healing powers thanks to shea butter and vitamin E. It feels light, so it’s perfect for balmy weather, and leaves behind a lovely stain of sheer color. We’re partial to the Pixi Pink and Coral Crush shades.
It’s finally (finally!) shorts and skirts season. Make sure your legs are sleek and nick-free with a little help from this lush shave cream. With a base of organic shea butter, jojoba oil, and coconut oil, it protects against redness and irritation. This new Grapefruit Acai “flavor” has just the right hint of fruitiness.
We’re already fans of LAQA & Co.’s Fat Lip Pencils so we were excited to try their Lip Lubes. Each high gloss, softly pigmented pencil gives lips a silky layer of sorbet-like color. Plus the combination of shea butter and peppermint simultaneously moisturizes and energizes your lips.
