April Birchbox

Hello lovelies!

I'll just jump right in and say I wasn't too impressed with this months birchbox.  I'm sure it's partly due to the fact that my teen vogue box was awesome and I had the same kind of expectations for this months box. 

I do know from looking at what other bloggers have gotten in their birchbox's that some months are definitely better than others and I guess this is just one of those months where the box is kind of, eh...... 

Here's what I got:
Yes To™ Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes - These are okay....they do the job but they're nothing spectacular.

~ Alima Pure™ Organic Nourishing Lip Balm - This lip balm was just okay as well, I got the Rhubarb color.  I went to twist it up and ended up not being able to get it back down again : (

~ J.R. Watkins Peppermint Foot Salve - This is probably my favorite product out of this box.  It's got a nice peppermint flavor and I've been putting it on at night and so far it's been working really well.  Better than handing over the money for a pedicure!

~ LIV GRN C2C Fragrance Collection in Natural - I did not like this perfume at all.  It was way too sweet for me.  I'm more of a floral girl and this smelt like candy.

~ Weleda Pomegranate Firming Night Cream - I tried this product for the first time last night and I couldn't get past the smell....it smelt like a public restroom, kind of lemon sterile....maybe that was pomegranate, but I don't think so.

There you go! 

So even though I really didn't like anything in this months box that's actually the great thing about Birchbox......you can get these samples and see what you like and what you don't like (instead of paying the big bucks for a full size product that you'll never use). 

So tell me what did ya'll get and what did you think?


  1. I just posted about my box yesterday!


  2. I still need to do my review, but I got a different box but pretty much very similar items. It was a different perfume (T.Swift's which was way too sweet for me) a different brand of facial towelettes, a foot and hand salve (not peppermint though-jealous!) but I DID get one decent item: zoya mint nail polish sample. I've worn it for a full week with only one tiny chip in it. I'm very impressed with the staying power! Hopefully next month's will be better! I think they were trying to do natural/green items which I rarely like as much....
