April 2016 Birchbox

Good morning y’all!!


I’m so sad the weekend is over!  😦  Someone needs to invent a way to make weekends longer than weekdays!  Pretty please!It’s time to unbox my April Birchbox.  You ready?  Let’s go!


Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription service that sends out 5 beauty samples.

You fill out a very simple beauty profile and they send you products based on that.

I’ve noticed Birchbox sends out primarily hair and skin products but have been including more makeup lately!!


Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask Sample:  Full Size = $42


Purges all kinds of debris from your skin-from excess oil to environmental pollutants-leaving your pores nearly invisible.


The full size comes with a brush that helps you apply the single-use mask pods more evenly.  I have plenty of makeup brushes that I can use to apply this though.  I really love that this formula works for all skin types, including sensitive skin!



Marcelle 3 in 1 Micellar Solution Sample:  Full Size = $21


Sweeps away makeup, cleanses skin, and soothes irritation.  The hypoallergenic formula is gentle enough for even the most dry or sensitive skin and contains naturally calming ingredients like aloe and cucumber.  Free of parabens, oil, soap and alcohol.


I have been dying to try this product out so I’m super happy!



Malin + Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser Sample:  Full Size = $32



Dissolves dirt and oil, clears acne, and balances skin’s pH.  The amino acid-based foaming gel taps naturally antibacterial grapefruit to prevent blemishes and exfoliate, while hydrating glycerin and sodium pca leave your complexion soft.


I love that Birchbox pays attention and noticed I have sensitive skin! Thank you Birchbox!  That means I can actually use the skin care products they send me…unlike Ipsy!



Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer Bonus Sample: Full Size = $46 (YIKES!)


This oil-free moisturizer is lightweight.  It’s antioxidant-rich formula has intensely hydrating properties and provides pH balance for all skin types, especially those with sensitive skin.



Normally, I dislike receiving samples that come in packets like this.  But this was a bonus item that they paired with the cleanser so I’m all for it!



Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask Sample:  Full Size = $34


Ultrahydrating deep conditioning mask fortified with essential oils.  This blend of transformative hair nutrients will restore and replenish hair to a glossier, healthier state.


How did they know?  My hair desperately needs some deep conditioning that will be life back!



Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tar Matte Test Tube in Strumpet Sample: Full Size = $16


With opaque coverage and amazing color payoff, these cult-favorite liquid lipsticks are infused with hemp and peppermint oils. Plus, they’re vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and free of silicones and artificial preservatives.


I’ve tried these before and love them! I love anything that has peppermint oil.  Plus, they are SUPER opaque so they really last a long time.  The shade I received (strumpet) is described as a “seedless grape red”.  Sounds fantastic!

Stand out products this month:

  •  EVERYTHING!!!!  Good job Birchbox!!
