The inserts.

There is one for 40% ready-to-heat meals and another for a wine club.

Walker & Sons “Slap Ya Mama” Cajun Seasoning
Retail $4.99 for 8 oz – Sample Value $.13

A little goes a long way with this!  VERY yummy in our scrambled eggs!!
Also, great used as a rub for chicken.
Our next try – pasta!

Biscotti Bari Authentic Almond Biscotti
Retail $16 for 8 pieces – Sample Value $2

Great biscotti can turn Folger’s into a yummy treat.
This was okay but not very yummy.  Probably the weakest item in the box.
Nonnie’s (that you can get in bulk at Costco) is better and cheaper.
Sorry Bari!

Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserves
Retail $4.79 for 13 oz – Sample Value $.37

This is one of those items I see at the grocery store but never tried.
It’s good and the sugars are at 13 g – not the best – but far from the worst.

The Cookie Department in Great Full
Retail $36 for 12 – 3 oz cookies – Sample Value $3

We loved this!
Checked out their website and we are very curious about the
Awaken Baked cookie.  We may have to invest in a sampler…

IMG_4046

Snapz Crisps in Tomato Crunch
Retail $1.99 for .46 oz

You can eat these like chips.
Even better crumbled into a SW scramble or on top of your next salad!!

IMG_4047

Caffe Borsa Hand Drip Coffee in Sumatra
Retail $17.99 for 16 packets – Sample Value $1.12

This would be great for camping or at a hotel.
Not so much for everyday use.

We have a trip coming up so this will come in handy
the one night we are in a hotel.

IMG_4048

Mrs. May’s Naturals Sunflower Crunch
Retail $3.85 for 5 oz – Sample Value $1.54

This was our “Mystery Item”
Sweet tasting but LOW in sugar!
If you like sunflowers these are a nice treat.

IMG_4049

Bali’s Best Latte Candy
Retail $9.99 for jar of 300 – Sample Value $.07

If you like coffee you will love these!
These would be nice once in a while – but we are not major candy eaters.

Total Value for our May Love With Food box – $10.22

Again – I list the value – however, given all of the good they do
we feel it is a great deal.  And so far we have not been disappointed!

Birchbox – May

My May Birchbox is here!
I have been seeing very mixed reviews this month.
I have to admit – I can see why.

May’s Theme: Beauty Diaries

IMG_4050

Four samples and a pen.  Hmmmm….

img_4051c

DevaCurl 3-Step System
1 oz each No-Poo Cleanser – One Condition – Light Defining Gel
Retail $19 for 12 fl oz (each) – Sample Value $4.75

I am still doing my test drive for Aveda – so these will have to wait until next week.
I have been curious about this product line – so it’s cool I got it.
That said – foil packets just plain suck.

IMG_4052

Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner in Suman (Black)
Retail $21 for 4 mini pencils / $11 for full size – Sample Value $5.25

When I first joined BB they sent me Eyeko in Navy and I was hooked.
I have brown eyes and it made them pop.

Black is fine – but I have five samples of black already – in better formulas.
This is too creamy and very smudgy.  Great if you are going for a goth look.
Since my goal is to wear my make up so I don’t scare my three-year old
or my hubby
this is NOT great.

IMG_4053

Coola Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer
Retail $32 for 1.7 fl oz – Sample Value $4.48 for .23 fl oz

Now this is cool!
Organic moisturizer with high SPF – and it smells lovely
(if you like the smell of cucumbers – which I do)

I usually use ThinkBaby SPF 50 under my make up during the summer.
This will be great for days I am not outside too much.

**Update**
This is a great moisturizer – light formula and the sunscreen worked great!

IMG_4055

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream in Blueberry
Retail $20 for 5 fl oz – Sample Value $2.93 for .75 fl oz

I haven’t tried this yet – but love the smell.
It gets decent reviews so I am hopeful!

**Update**
This is not that great.  Feels like shaving with hair conditioner mixed with oil.
Plus it had a weird way of wicking moisture – like getting anti-perspirent on your hands.

IMG_4056

Pilot Acroball PureWhite Pen in Turquoise
Retail $6.24 for 4 – Sample Value $1.56

WTF?!

On one hand this is better than a piece of chocolate.
On the other – were they low on samples and decided to hit the
stationary/office aisle at Costco??

Total Value for my May Birchbox – $18.97

Between the foil packs and the pen I have to say this box felt weak.
Especially after Ipsy’s amazing May bag.

Birchbox is a $10 per month subscription service that offers deluxe & full size samples.
