Birchbox - April 2013

I was so excited to wake up to my Birchbox today!

This month, they teamed up with Women's Health magazine to give us a box themed "tiny tweaks, big results", designed to help up fine-tune our lifestyle.

This is a pretty full box!

These are towelettes by Herban Essentials. They are basically little moist towelettes made with essential oils. They're good for germ killing and aromatherapy! I got peppermint and lavender. These aren't the most exciting sample, but hey, I'll use them...I currently have some sinus issues so the peppermint will be useful for me!

These are macaroons by Hail Merry. Now, I have gotten these before in a Conscious Box, so I have tried them...and I am not a fan of them. They are raw, vegan, gluten-free, and made with non GMO ingredients, which is great...they just don't taste that great. But I am not a fan of things like this. THey are coconutty and similar in texture to something like a Luna bar, which I don't enjoy.  I am glad this product exists, though!

This is SOS Morning Eye Rescue by Caudalie. It is a daily treatment for the eyes. Eye creams and products are always welcome, as I have genetic dark circles and all kinds of not-so-greatness going on in my eye area. It's a teeny little tube, but as an eye cream, a little will go a long way. Really excited to try this.

Malin + Goetz cilantro hair conditioner - This is exactly what it sounds like. A daily conditioner containing cilantro. It promises to balance PH levels and hydrate. My thirsty hair is always happy to try a new conditioner.

And finally, the Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick. This is a pencil with a glossy shiny finish and a great, hydrating formula. The shade I got is Quick Kiss, which is quite orangey. However, I found that I liked the way it looked on, and I love the finish and the feel.

The packaging is odd. It seems like a full size, though it does not twist up or anything like that, so what you get is what you see, basically.

It is very pigmented and super smooth and glossy.

Definitely a bold shade, but wearable. I would really be into trying more shades of this formula!

In all, this is a pretty decent Birchbox! I am excited about the lipstick and the eye cream, and everything else will be used. Not bad, Birchbox!

What was in your box this month?

Paragraph writing is also a excitement, if you know then you can write or else it is
difficult to write.
