April Birchbox Reveal and Special From the Garden Box

Have you heard of Birchbox?  I love it!  I started receiving boxes about a year ago, they are $10 a box and you receive a bunch of awesome samples.  I’ve found so many makeup brands that I’ve never known existed (being that I have been sort of clueless about these sorts of things) but now am loving discovering.

Birchbox Package

This month’s box was co-sponsored by Women’s Health Magazine which was cool.  It also means that there’s a subscription postcard for a free year of Women’s Health which could be interesting–not a magazine I’m super familiar with.

Box

The box was wrapped in this special wrapper and I liked the idea of the tiny tweaks, big results as I think it’s a good motto for life.

Subscription Postcard

 

Here is the offer for the magazine.  I love physical magazines so I will probably subscribe to it-if I can figure out where i put the darned postcard.

Now the products I received this month:

The products

 

I received:

A small sample of Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir.  The directions are to put four or five drops onto your hair before styling.  I like it but not enough to purchase again.

Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On.  This is supposed to give vitamins and minerals to that sensitive area under your eyes and wake them up.  It’s supposed to reduce puffiness and wake up your tired eyes.  Again good product, not sure I would buy it.

Fleur de Baies which is a hand boxed soap. Smells yum and I will probably use it.

Kiehl’s-Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate.  I haven’t tried it yet and am not sure I will.

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss which I LOVE!  It’s a lip gloss crayon type thing and the color is gorgeous.  I’ve used it every day since I got it and this I will most likely purchase again as it’s a good every day color.

The special box.  Birchbox did a winter/holiday box that I really enjoyed so I thought I would also get the spring box.  It ended up being next to nothing because I had enough points to purchase it.

BirchboxThe box is green-already a good sign for me!

From The Garden Tips I love how they always send tips and good ideas

KnifeA fun knife with onion print-I hope it works well.

Bergamot and JasmineBergamot and Jasmin perfume–smells yum.

Strawberry Raspberry JamStrawberry-Raspberry Jam

Peach Apricot JamPeach Apricot Jam–I can see good things for both of these!

Basil KitA grow your own basil kit-yum

Mint CandleYummy smelling mint candle

MatchesSuper smart to put matches on the cover!

Shopping ListBeing a writer, I love any items I can use for writing!

LotionSuper yummy smelling apple/tulip lotion

BagguPerfect bag for the farmer’s market.

All in all, I loved the spring box as much if not more than I loved the holiday box!  I again love birchbox and would recommend ordering it!  In fact, if you are interested, please use my link!  I get points if you sign up through me :).
