April BirchBox

Sorry for being delayed, yet again, in writing my blog review of my April BirchBox. Life has just happened and it got pushed to the back burner right now.

A few days ago I got my "thank you for being a BirchBox member for 13 months" key chain :) Its cute

But here it is!!!! :)
This month's theme was: Tiny Tweaks, Big Results! BirchBox and Women's Health teamed up for this month's box. Women's Health put together a collection of their favorite products, all designed to help us fine-tune our lifestyles. BirchBox wrote, "We all know that the little things...can make all the difference. That's why we've got plenty of ways that you can improve your overall outlook."

In The Box...

Joanna Vargas
Daily Serum
Sample Size: 5 ml
The celebrity facialist packs her brightening serum with vitamins A, E, and C, plus hyaluronic acid. This is an all-natural serum that has serious hydrating power to brighten any skin type. It sinks in quickly and leaves skin smooth and matte.

I am excited to give this a try. I would have before now, but forgot it was in my box until I got it out to write this blog post about it - oops! I love anything that will help hydrate my skin more.

Buy It:
BirchBox  $85 for 1 fl oz / 29.5 ml

Age Premium Bain Substantif
Sample Size: 2 pouches, each with 10 ml / 0.34 fl oz
Made with UV filters and hyaluronic acid, this action-packed shampoo fortifies hair against damage. As we get older, our hair fibers tend to become more porous, leading to a loss of density. This one-of-a-kind formula addresses this problem with a host of actives.

I used this shampoo. It cleaned my hair well and felt good after using it. I'm sure if I used it more often and regularly I might notice some difference in my hair and not after only 2 washes with it :)

Buy It:
BirchBox $38 for 250 ml / 8.5 fl oz

Fleurs de Baies Bath Soap
Sample Size: 1.86 oz / 53 g
Infused with wild roses, black currants, and raspberry, NY-based LAFCO's lush blend is a world away from ordinary bar soap.

I LOVE the smell of this soap. For me, it is overpowering at times, but its not a scent that lasts and lasts, its there, but then slowly dissipates after using it. It is a nice, fresh scent. It works good, too!

Buy It:

Glossy Kiss Lipstick
Sample Size: 4 g / 0.15 oz
Sample Color: Cheeky Kiss (color in the picture is not the color I got)
Launching exclusively in the BirchBox shop, this user-friendly lip pencil is a quick way to score a high-impact pout. They are bold, glossy hues that are a no-fail way to add polish to any ensamble, and the long-lasting formula stays high-impact for hours. Also, each pencil can be used as a cheek stain!

Cheeky Kiss is a beige-toned pink. Other colors available are Flirty Kiss (a true red), Quick Kiss (a daring orange), Perfect Kiss (a soft coral with subtle shimmer), Angel Kiss, and Romantic Kiss.

I wore this on Sunday to church as was very impressed by it. Super easy to put onto the lips, no weird smells or anything like that. I did blot mine a little as the color was a little bright for me compared to my currently-pale skin. But the color lasted for hours!

Buy It:
BirchBox $26.55 for 4 g

** BirchBox Finds**
Simple Sensitive Skin Experts
Revitalizing Eye Roll-On
Sample Size: 0.5 fl oz / 15 ml
"We love sending you the latest high-end beauty essentials every month. But we also keep an eye out for affordable finds that will brighten your routine. Our newest obsession: this nifty eye roll-on from Simple Sensitive Skin Experts. It helps to reduce puffiness and revitalize tired eyes by instantly cooling and gently massaging the delicate eye area. We're adding it to your sample haul because we think you'll love it as much as we do."

I tried this the other day and the coolness of it did make under my eyes feel less tired and puffy. Great to have around for those days when sleep hasn't been great :)

Buy It:
BirchBox $10.99 for 0.5 oz
It can also be found at mass retailers, drug stores, and grocery stores!

Certainly a fun box this month, full of things I will certainly use!
