April Birchbox

I also like to call this one "Make it or break it"box. I've been less than thrilled with the last few boxes and this box was going to be the deciding factor in my decision to keep it or cancel it.
Let's look at the box, then I'll tell you what I decided.
I've had it for a while, but just haven't set aside a day to post it.
Here we go...

Caudalie Divine Oil - hydrates dry skin, especially during the Winter months. (are they aware it's well into Spring now? Anyway....) I'm not really a fan of oils. I have oily enough skin already and don't like to put more oil on my skin. I do have dry areas at times, especially during cold weather but I'm still not a fan. Didn't dig the smell, either.

Youngblood Anti-Shine Mattifier - This might be beneficial for me, especially for the reason I just spoke about, and the fact that it's getting warmer around here. It's a tiny sample, even though the package looks big enough. Trust me, there's a teeny tiny little metal disk of stuff in that big box. I will give this a try though, on those hot days when my face is getting shiny. :)

StriVectin-SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles - This is another one that could benefit me. I'm getting to the age where I really need to start being proactive about preventing and reducing wrinkles. I know of this brand and know that it's good stuff, so I'll give this baby a try and see what difference it makes. It's supposed to help dark circles too, which would be HUGE for me!

Weleda body lotions - All I have to say about these is....PEEEEEWWWW!!!! All 3 smell awful. End of story.

Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir - I'll admit that I haven't been good about using this much...only 2-3 times on my dry ends, but I haven't noticed any change in my hair. Maybe if I use it more regularly and put it on my hair before drying it, it'll be worth it. We'll see.

Well, after almost a year with Birchbox, I feel like my time with them has run its course. It's fun getting these little packages in the mail every month that are just for myself, and at only $10/month it's a really great deal (most of the time). It's a great way to try out new products that you probably otherwise wouldn't but all good things must come to an end, so I'll be canceling my subscription after receiving this box. Maybe I'll find another fun monthly box to check out, and if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them, but for now I'll keep my $10/month for something else. 


  1. I thought about getting a birchbox monthly but I just can't bring myself to spend that money monthly! Thanks for the review:)

  2. The ipsy (formerly known as the Glam Bag) is awesome!


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
