What’s in my
I was so excited to receive my April Birchbox!
As always, I skip, hop, and jump when I see this little box arrive.
I was pretty pleased with it! Not the all-time best but not the worst either.
So I will start with the products on the left and go right.
These Befine products look awesome. They are made with nutritious super-foods (i.e. avocados, pomegranates, almonds) and are allergen, fragrance and preservative free. I haven’t tried them yet but I plan on it tonight.
The hair powder is interesting. It is from LULU Organics and has a lavender/clary sage scent.
I’m not sure if I will ever use this because if my hair really needs washing that bad, I would rather go ahead and wash it and not try to cover it up. However, there have been days in the past where washing my hair in a time crunch was not possible and I would stick to my mom’s ‘ol trick she taught me when I was younger: baby powder.
Either way, should you find yourself in a time crunch and can’t wash the greasy look out of your roots, grab this (or regular baby powder!) and tap a dime-size amount in your palms, rub your hands together, then work through the roots of your hair.
I am digging this ZOYA nail polish in Bevin. I am also only showing you my pinky finger as to spare you from the horrendous sight of a pair of hands in great need of a mani.
It’s a greenish-blueish, mint-looking color. And I think it will match nicely with any spring outfit.
It goes on really smoothly and has a nice shine even before painting a top coat.
I just used one of these after my workout this afternoon. I really liked it. It wasn’t harsh on my face or gross smelling. And even though I hadn’t put on any makeup yet today, there was still a slight hint of makeup on the towel that I must have missed with my cleanser. *no judgement, please!* Uh oh…this must mean I need a new cleanser! Any suggestions?
So I can be pretty picky when it comes to perfumes. I have only ever used 2 in my life so far:
1. Ralph Lauren HOT (discontinued…very sad)
2. Kim Kardashian Gold *again, no judgment! Until now, only my family has known that I wear her perfume. And I wear it because I like the smell and, most importantly, so does my husband. That’s it. I wear it for the scent not the celebrity. So moving on…*
I actually don’t mind the scent of Taylor Swift’s perfume! I could see myself possibly wearing it on occasion.
All right, so that’s my April Birchbox! Are you a Birchbox subscriber? What did you get this month?
Not sure what the heck Birchbox is?
It’s a lovely thing. You pay $10 a month and receive a box with samples of high-end beauty and lifestyle products. You can select categories that you are interested in receiving. It comes right to your door. And it makes your little heart skip a few beats because you never know what you’re going to get from month to month. It’s a surprise package on your front doorstep! Love.
Still want to know more? Go HERE!
And I just received a notice that May’s Birchbox will be a Gossip Girl-themed box…wonder what it will have in it!
Oh, and don’t forget to let me know what you got in your Birchbox! And recommendations for your favorite face wash/cleanser would be fantastic!
