April 2014 Birchbox Review

Birchbox  review for April.jpg

1. BEAUTY PROTECTOR, Protect & Detangle – This sample smells like a dream! It does leave your hair feeling soft and silky. I have naturally wavy hair that is very thick so a detangler is a must. While not the best product I have ever used to detangle, it is one of the best smelling! Just be warned, it is thick so it takes a few minutes of pumping before any product comes out of the spray bottle.

2. COLOR CLUB, Gala’s Gems Collection – Aquamarine Azulino – Perfect for Easter! (And all of spring for that matter.) I am in love with this robin’s egg blue color with a pearly finish. What do you think?

I have no nailistry (is that a word?) capabilities. As well, I am aware that the thumbnail has already chipped. I didn’t notice it until the picture was already uploaded onto my computer and by that time there was no turning back. My life.

3. SUMITA, Color Contrast Eyeliner in Jamun (Deep Purple) – For sure my favorite thing in the box this month! Two days before Birchbox showed up on my doorstep I was thinking how I was getting tired of using my smudge pot everyday and wanted to give pencil eyeliner a try again. Voilà! This is a wax pencil so it gives that thick and creamy line that a smudge pot gives, just with less effort. Win, win!

4. SUPERGOOP!, Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream in Light/Medium – In comparison to last month’s Miracle Skin Transformer, this is a gem! No weird sparkle, added SPF for the spring sun, creates a smooth primer on my skin. Win. Super win. 

5. KIND SNACKS, Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt Healthy Grains Bar – (not pictured) Don’t judge, I got hungry after all the excitement from the Birchbox Skype Date and ate my KIND Healthy Grain Bar. I am not sorry though because it was delicious and totally worth every crunchy crumb. 

As for the rainy days idea #8. Meh. That was a cute idea, Birchbox, but I wasn’t overly inspired as you hoped I would be. The rainy day idea said to basically washi tape my Birchbox and make something new. Me and the rest of the pinterest world (see here).

April 2014 Birchbox Review

1. KIND HEALTHY GRAINS: Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt – I love everything I’ve eaten so far by the KIND brand, so when I saw it in this month’s box, I was excited to try a new flavor of theirs that I’ve never had. This grain bar was every bit of amazing and had the perfect amount of saltiness-to-sweetness ratio in every bite!

2. SUMITA, Color Contrast Eyeliner (Black) – I have yet to try this product but am curious to see how well it holds throughout the day. I am pretty picky about the eyeliner I use since my pores tend to cause the eyeliner to bleed below my eyes…I really dislike looking like a raccoon!

3. HARVEY PRINCE, Yogini Perfume – I really did not like this perfume. Its smell is overpowering and kind of lingers like an annoying fly. As it wears off though, it starts to smell a little better…but who would buy a perfume just to do that?

4. BEAUTY PROTECTOR, Protect & Detangle – This is definitely my most favorite product from this month’s box. It smells like heaven and leaves your hair feeling soft and looking silky. I have used this spray religiously since I first received it and think I’ll just have to make a full size purchase now before the week is over! 

5. COLOR CLUB, Gala’s Gems Collection “Breakfast At…” – I absolutely love this bright, spring nail polish! It’s thick, made of really great quality, and dries quickly (with a lovely shimmer)! 

6. Bright Ideas for a Rainy Day #26 – I am on the same page with Kate about this one. It was nice to find another item in my box, but searching to buy an umbrella online is the last thing I would consider myself doing as being creative while on a rainy day.
