April Birchbox Reveal

5:21:00 PM


The April Birchbox is here and I'm so excited to share it with you! This month I opted for the Featured box instead of getting surprised. I usually like letting the pros at Birchbox make me a box, but I was dying to try the Laura Geller blush so chose this one.

A quick FYI: I've been a fan of Birchbox for awhile! I've only been subscribed for a year but learned about the company as early as their first launch — I just thought it was the coolest concept. I've probably read every article on Katia and Hayley — they are true badass CEOs and I aspire to be like them on so many levels. (Sidenote: I've also applied a million times to work there, but alas!)

I digress. So let's jump into the box. 



As always, you get five awesome samples in your box. This month's featured box included: Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution, Dr. Jart+ Liftra Contour Cream, Laura Geller New York Baked Blush-n-Brighten, PARLOUR by Jeff Chastain Volumizing Lifting Spray and TOCCA Crema da Mano - Giulietta. Also, NONE of these products were tested on animals, which is always a HUGE plus for me as I do my very best to stay away from those products.

As I mentioned earlier, I was so stoked to try the Laura Geller Blush. I used to spend hours watching her product reveals on QVC. I love blush, it's probably my favorite beauty product. This sample is 0.04 oz and the package even has a mirror. This stuff is amazing! Since it's a blush and highlighter in one, you can skip a step and head out the door that much faster. I hate super shimmery blush, but this is a great in between. As someone who is oily, I love how long this lasts.

My other favorite beauty product that's always in my bag is Micellar water. This secret product is making waves in the US now, and it's a must try. The one in the BB is great at removing stubborn makeup like mascara. I don't just count on this to remove makeup. I either use this first then wash my face or wash my face and use this to get anything my face wash missed. 

The other three products also deserve honorable mentions. I've gotten the TOCCA hand lotion in my box before, but not this pink tulip and green apple scent. I wasn't sure about the scent at first, but it's very nice. The PARLOUR spray smells heavenly and does a great job with volumizing my hair although my hair it does it naturally. I wasn't a huge fan of the Dr. Jart+ cream. It may be because my skin is too young to benefit from it, but I'm sure it works wonders on more mature skin.

Do you use Birchbox? What's been your favorite sample?
