April Birchbox

Hello Everyone, it's that time in the not THAT time in the month...but the Birchbox time! April is Earth Month so Birchbox sent this little box of joy in a light green box, instead of the fuchsia pink it usually is in. All of the products received are eco-friendly products. Their purpose this month was to teach all us makeup and cosmetic fans and eco-friendly products can be great too! I'll review the products sooner or later and let you know what I'll be purchasing. So into the products!

The first on the list is the Green Apple Peel by Juice Beauty.
The description card says: This organic peel doesn't mess around: natural fruit acids dissolve even the most tenacious dead cells for an immediately brighter, smoother complexion.
- I have never tried skin peels so it will be nice to test an organic product that would not be as harsh for skin. It has a fresh scent, very delicate of apples but not over sweet.
- The sample size is .5 fl oz and the full size is 2fl oz at $45 dollars (they sent a mini sample of the stem cellular repair moisturizer.

The second product is Earth Eau de Parfum from LIV GRN
The description card says: Made from biodegradeable and sustainable ingredients, this lush scent is laced with jasmine and sandalwood.
-I'm very picky with scents, but I love it! I feel like it is the perfect scent for summer after you spent the day at the beach. There is warmth to this scent and yet still light.
-This was a mini tester tube of the perfume so i have no idea how many oz it is, but the full size is 3.4 fl oz and is $60.

The third product is the Healthy Body Butter by Lavanila.
The description card says: Made from all natural shea and cocoa butters, this satiny cream is lighter than your usual butters.
-This is a really nice light scent, more on the lavendar side than vanilla, and I LOVE lavendar.
- The sample size was 2.75 oz and the full size is 8.5 oz for $25.

The fourth product is a nail polish in the color Jules from Zoya.
THe description card says: Green is glam, especially when it comes to Zoya's super glossy lacquers.  THis versatile metallic hue is your new spring go-to.
-This color is a nude-ish grey nail polish with pink, silver, and gold shimmer.
-Zoya sent a mini order list of all colors and their spring line I love the shade Danii which is a purple with pink, light purple, silver, and gold shimmer.
-The sample size is .25 fl oz and full size is .5 oz for $8.

The bonus item of this month is something just so adorable! It's called Seed Paper by Bloomin.
This is a small card, that invites can be printed on, but they are filled with wildflower seeds so you can plant the paper instead of sticking it into the trash! Adorable!

I can't wait to try all these products out. In the meantime....HAPPY SHOPPIN!

  1. I love this month's Birchbox! I received all the same things as you and already planted the seed paper.

    Just a suggestion for your blog: The font is nice but a little hard to read. I would put it as the header and then do the blog posts in a regular font such as Arial or Times New Roman.

  2. Thank you for your blog. Hope I get the same stuff!
