April Birchbox Review

Yes, this is a month-late, but nevertheless, I wanted to review April's Birchbox.  The theme in April was Natural Wonders so the products were related to skin care and natural beauty.  All in the all, I would say this was my least favorite box yet.  I did not order any of the products after trying. 

1.  Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
My review:  smells good, but I prefer the Juicy Couture perfume sample over this one.  Great for travel though.  Not good enough to buy full-size.

2.  Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Mineral Tinted Moisturizer
This is the one product I have yet to try.  Will update you when I do.  Was given the medium tone which is perfect for me.

3.  Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil
Tried on my face and did not like it, however, I'm reading now that it can be used to rehydrate hair.  May like it for this purpose. 

4.  Kahina Giving Beauty Facial Lotion
Did not like the smell or feel of this facial lotion.  I prefer my go-to Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Moisurizer that I've been using for years.  I always go back to this!

5.  Yes To: Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes
I was most excited for this product because it was such a generous sample (20 towelettes).  They smell amazing, blueberry and lemon scented.  I used these a few times, however, started breaking out a few days later so I have since stopped.  Who knows if my breakout was caused by the wipes, but since my skin is thankfully back to normal, I don't want to risk it and try again.

6.  Benta Berry G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser
This product was okay.  Smells good and cleansed okay.  I don't think it was "scrubby" enough and prefer my St. Ives Apricot Scrub that can be purchased at the drug store. 

I'm still a major fan of Birchbox and can't wait to receive my May Box, rumored to be the "Gossip Girl" themed box!  Click here to join Birchbox

Did you know they now offer a Men's Birchbox.  I would totally sign Jason up for this, however it is $20/month rather than the $10/month for the girl's box.  Is it me or does $20/month seem steep for a subscription service of samples.  Ten is my threshold.   Sorry Jason.
