May 2014 Best of Boxes

It’s time for my monthly Best of the Boxes post! These are my favorite items (although I do try and pick from a variety of items) from subscription boxes I received in May 2014 (well reviews I posted from 5/1 – 5/31 otherwise it gets too confusing):

1. Deep Steep Hand Cream (Petit Vour): I use this daily (it’s one of the many hand creams I have in my rotation right now) and not only does it smell incredible, it’s also not greasy and leaves my hands super soft.  I have seen this at TJ Maxx / Marshalls a few times, so if you shop there, keep your eyes out for it!
~Goodbyn Hero (Citrus Lane):  I love the container itself and I also love that Citrus Lane subscribers got it before it was even on sale. Both WB and L have one and I have a pink one on it’s way for myself.
~Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 (Sephora Sun Safety):  This was a complete cheat because I loved it before it came in this set, but I don’t care!  I don’t buy this too often because it’s expensive, but it’s also incredible.  Loved seeing this in the Sun Safety Kit!
~Lily Pulitzer Lobstah Roll Market Bag (The Boodle Box):  This is from a kids / tween box, but it’s totally me and I love it.
~Alterna Caviar CC Cream (GLOSSYBOX):  Never before had I heard of CC cream for your hair, but it’s awesome.  It gets rid of my flyaway hair, leaves it shiny and doesn’t weigh it down at all.
~Edens Paper (Tomato Wrapping Paper & Sunflower Wrapping Paper) (Artistry Gift Wrap): This is the coolest thing.  This wrapping paper can be used to wrap presents and then planted to grow into flowers, vegetables, etc.  So unique and cool.
~Citrus Zinger Infuser Water Bottle (PopSugar):  I am guessing this is on a lot of people’s “Best of” lists this month.  It’s easy to use, easy to clean and makes drinking water more fun.
~Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face + Body Stick Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70 (Allure Summer Beauty Box): Stick sunscreen is amazing.  The kids are much more tolerant of it and you can throw it in your bag without having to worry it’s going to make a giant mess if it open.
~Caldrea Body Lotion (GLOSSYBOX Mother’s Day): Love this line and I love this body lotion.  I am almost wondering why I didn’t pick up two of these Mother’s Day boxes!
~EBBA – Miss Marissa Roll-On (Hazel Lane): OMG, most incredible perfume I have ever smelled.  Find this somewhere so you can smell it in person.

Those were my favorites now what were yours? Anything you received that you have now totally fallen in love with? I can’t wait to hear!

    We didn’t get many boxes this month but I love my Goodbyn Hero too. N uses it everyday and today when it was still dirty since we forgot to run the dishwasher oops LOL and had to use a different one he was upset. So funny how they get so attached to something so fast.

      That is funny!!! When is their next break?

        His last day is the 27th and then he goes back on July 28th as a 1st grader. I can’t believe they are getting so old since we are not aging at all. 😉

          Isn’t that weird? I am not getting older at all yet both kids are. So odd.
