April Birchbox

Birchbox teamed up with Women's Health this month to put together the April box! It includes editor-approved products that will help get our beauty routines in shape for the season. With a build-up like that, how could I resist ordering one?

My first look at my April box. Nice colorful change from the usual brown box!

Mighty Leaf tea pouches in Chamomile Citrus, Green Tea Tropical, and Organic Earl Grey. I love tea, so am excited to try these!
Caudalie Divine Oil - a multi-tasking wonder that's supposed to give skin hair, and nails a gorgeous glow. Oils make me nervous as I think my hair/skin is oily enough, but I'll give it a try.
Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir - a shine boosting serum that's supposed to cure dry stands and reduce age-related breakage. I have oily hair, so again am nervous about this one. 
StriVectin-SD Eye Concentrate for wrinkles - what's with all the anti-aging stuff? Wrinkle cream? Really? Is Birchbox trying to tell me something? ha!
Mirenesse Glossy Kiss lip pencil - a Birchbox exclusive, this lip pencil is awesome! I received the Flirty Kiss shade, which seems to be the boldest color. Very easy to apply!
Free Subscription to Women's Health magazine -  a card was included in the box that you can mail in for a free one year magazine subscription. Nice! Even nicer is that you can receive a $9.99 rebate if you're not interested in the magazine.

So while Birchbox is not my favorite subscription, I liked this box better than last month. Jury is still out on whether or not I'll keep or cancel it though. Despite filling out my profile that I wanted fragrance, I seem to be one of the few people who hasn't received a perfume sample. And what's with all the aging products? Birchbox, are you saying you think I'm old? ha!


  1. This bos was pretty much free because of the Woman's Health subscription! I like when they send me wrinkle stuff,. Maybe it's because I am old???

  2. I'll never admit to being old, so the wrinkle creams still annoy me. Need to get over that and give them a try though, as I might be surprised. But I'm still not old! *L*
