Birchbox April Reveal

Birchbox April FINALLY arrived and it is my absolute favorite so far this year.  I am a huge fan of Rifle Paper Co. (I own way too many of their products!) and this month Birchbox and Rifle Paper Co. teamed up.  The box is a stunning result of the team-up. I love it so much I plan on keeping it on my desk.


Every month  Birchbox likes to give their box a theme and this month is Spring-fresh starts/looks and makeovers.

This month I received five items in my Birchbox.  BB now has different levels of membership…I have the original box.  The original Birchbox cost $10, and it ships to the US, France, Spain, Canada and the UK.






First up, Supergoop Advanced Aging Eye Cream with SPF {2ml value $6}.  I have only ever tried the face protector from Supergoop so I am excited to give this eye cream a try.  So far, I like it.  It is a bit thick for me so I have to be careful not to apply too much or it becomes a bit overwhelming with my oily skin.  The scent is nice and I really like that it has SPF.  Overall I am happy with this pick.

Next, was the Whish shave cream { 22ml value $3}.  I have received this in a previous box but in a different scent.  It is the perfect size for traveling and the product is nice.



TempleSpa Peace Be Still face & body cream {25ml value $3.60}… this was just ok for me.  I am hoping that it grows on me with time.  The scent just didn’t do it but the texture is nice and creamy.

Beauty Protector Hair Oil { 1 oz value $6.50}… Am I the only one over these hair oils?  I have a drawer full of them and can’t seem to use them up quick enough before the next one arrives.  Obviously I am NOT excited about this item in the box.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator (!!!) {.04 oz value $10} I am very excited about this.  Cynthia Rowley makes amazing beauty products and I can’t wait to try this one out.  I just hope the sample lasts long enough for me to really judge buying it or not.

As I said in the beginning this box really excited me.  I loved the theme, the Rifle Paper Co team-up, and the products inside.  The value is over $47 with a cost of only $10!  This box was a great deal.  With the exception of the hair oil, I LOVED every item so the value of this month’s box was really high for me.

What did everyone else think?  Want a box for yourself?  Head over to Birchbox and check them out!
