Subscription Review: Birchbox (April 2014)

My April Birchbox arrived last week and I've had some time to check everything out...



They included these rainy day ideas in the box, very fitting since it's been so rainy this week! I agree, museums are fun, but definitely go during an off hour since the whole rest of the world will be there too (just use our Naval Aviation Museum experience as an example!).


I like when they put something inside the smaller little boxes because it's like I get to open another present.


BeeKind Body Lotion was a welcome sample as I'm almost out of body lotion (I have lots of hand lotion, but it's not the same :) ). It goes on smoothly and feels nice. It is a little thinner than I expected and I went back and forth on whether I liked the smell (it's a little sharp, but not bad at all), but I am a big fan that it is made without a bunch of bad chemicals!


The Balm Cosmetics - How 'Bout Them Apples? is a dual cream blush and lip color. I got the Pie color and it was perfect for my skin tone. I've never used a cream blush before and it is awesome. I felt so sophisticated putting it on my cheeks. It is just subtle enough that you can't really tell I'm wearing makeup, which is just how I like it.


Also, the packaging is awesome (there's a magnet in the side too, so it snaps closed).


The perfume sample of Harvey Prince Yogini came at the perfect time. I ran out of my other Birchbox perfume sample on our Final Four trip, and I like to have something in my travel bag since all my other perfumes are well over the 3 ounce limit for flying. This smells amazing. If I didn't have so much perfume already, I would be buying this.


Davines OI / All In One Milk joins several other really nice hair products in my cabinet. I don't even know how I can pick anymore since everything I've received has been awesome, but this is especially so. I have been using it this week during all the rain, and my hair stays smooth and shiny all day.


This is the first time I have tried a KIND bar and I hope it won't be the last. It was good, although a little salty (but I admittedly am fairly sensitive to salt). I ate it as an afternoon snack and it kept me full for several hours.


If you are interested in signing up for Birchbox, click here, which is my referral link. It's $10/month or $110/year, and I have truly been enjoying it the past few months. Birchbox has a fun points system where you can review the samples you get to receive 10 points each, and for each 100 points you have, it counts as $10 in their store. It's a pretty good deal (if you really like something, you can save up and get it for free!). You can also get points by referring people or by buying products in the store (actually money you spend is $1 = 1 point). I look forward to this box every month and am loving discovering new products.
