April Birchbox

I received my Birchbox last week. It took over 10 days from the shipping notification from the company until it was actually in my mailbox. Umm, that's a bit long don't you think?

Here are my thoughts about this month's box. First of all, I love how it comes packaged a box within a box. Everything inside is so nicely wrapped with tissue and tied with ribbon. It truly feels like a gift each time I open one.

All natural products this month.

Full size product! It's an all-in-one beauty balm. You can use it
for your lips, eyes or cheeks! It is perfect for my skin tone.

A box of huge cleanser and moisturizer samples. The cleanser 
smells like mint - great for a morning wake up. The 
moisturizer has a soft scent similar to sunscreen. Unfortunately, my
cleansers were EXPIRED (in 2010). Birchbox deposited 100
bonus points into my account to make up for it.

The other items included in the box were perfume {Atelier Cologne: Orange Sanguine} Tea {Le Palais Des Thes} and Everyday Everyone Everything Skincare Oil {Olie 004 Huile Moderne}
  • The perfume is delicious. I love the soft citrus scent
  • Haven't tried the tea - not super excited about this
  • The skincare oil has an EXTREMELY strong smell - gave it to my bestie - she loves it!!
Overall, I think this is a good box. I think the full size multi-tasking beauty balm is going to be the winner of the box this month.

Do you get Birchbox? You can get a subscription for only $10 a month and can cancel at anytime! Visit here for more information. I can't wait for the Gossip Girl Birchbox next month!!

I am so upset I missed this month. I just signed up for Birchbox, so I won't get it til May :/ I am a sucker for lip balm/gloss... so I am drooling over that pic of the full sized jar of lip balm!

Happy Thursday and enjoy those lovely gifts!!
