April Birchbox

I finally got my April Birchbox in the mail today and thank goodness because Monday wasn’t such a great day at work. It was definitely one of those Mondays and this little box cheered me up a bit.

Here’s what I got.

Revolution Organics – Freedom Glow Beauty Balm
I think I’m most excited to use this one. I love bronzer, and it’s definitely something I wear on a daily basis so hopefully I like this one. And…this is not even a “sample” size. It’s huge and it will probably last me awhile. I’ll let you know if I add this to my daily routine.


Befine – Skincare Sampler
These are gentle cleanser and moisturizer packets. I’m going to give them a try, but I’m pretty sensitive to a lot of lotions and cleansers that usually make me break out in tiny little bumps. It is made with mostly natural ingredients so I’m thinking I should be okay. This one has to be amazing though in order to beat my Aveeno products. I just love Aveeno!


Olie Biologique – 004 Huile Moderne
This is a mixture of oils that can be used on the face, body and hair. I’m not sure I love the smell of it so I am probably going to use it for my hair mostly. Probably just on the ends since my hair is very damaged. It reminds me of an essential oil called Ambre that was created by some ladies from Indiana. Unfortunately 004 Huile Moderne doesn’t smell as lovely. Unless it’s absolutely amazing I don’t think I can see myself buying the whole bottle since it retails for $56.


Atelier Cologne – Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue
I really like this scent – it’s clean and fruity. Perfect for the warm weather (hopefully coming soon to Chicago) in the Spring and Summer months. I like it, but not sure I would buy a full bottle. I also loved the cute postcard that came with it. I put it up in my office at work.


Le Palais des Thes – Tea Bags
I’ve tried and tried to force myself to like green tea but I just can’t stand it. I’m hoping that these will be amazing though. I haven’t tried them out yet so I’ll have to get back to you on whether or not I would buy them (which is probably a no since I don’t really like tea).

All in all I feel like it was an “OK” Birchbox. I need to give some of the products more of a shot but, unfortunately, some of them just aren’t the type of products I like to use. I give this month’s box a 5 out of 10. Last month was an 8 (I never had a chance to blog about it) because of all the yummy Teen Vogue products. As soon as I run out of my Fresh Sugar Rose lip balm I will be buying a new one. I might even go get the coral color before that though!
