So it's that time of the month again when the latest Birchbox arrives with all it's goodies inside and this month is no different.
It felt like I waited ages for my box though and seeing everyones reviews and posts about the box seemed to make it that little bit harder but I have to say I was a little surprised to see what was in my box... You will see why in a bit...
Here's what's inside
No onto the products one by one!
Gerda Spillmann - Renaissance Age Serum
La Societe Parisienne De Savons - Soap
I almost feel like it's too pretty to use and would love to just have this on the side but thus this defeats the object of having a soap so I will use it and while I do I can act like a proper lady!
Mirenesse - Glossy Kiss
14. Perfect Kiss
The colour I got is 'perfect kiss' which is a red with gold shimmer running through. I wouldn't class this as an 'everyday lip colour' as it is quite strong and with the gold shimmer which I feel it just looks a little too much for day time wear. However it would look fab on a night out or if your going somewhere special. I kind of wish I got a more wearable colour which would have allowed me to wear it anytime as it is such a handy product to put in your bag and apply whenever you need too.
Weleda - Skin Food
I will admit and say I probably need a new moisturiser like a hole in the head. I have so many which I need to get through so when I saw this I didn't really think much, that's until I tried it!
I have never used a moisturiser that is so thick and which sinks into my skin so well. It literally leaves your skin feeling like a silk and I think I'm a little in love.
It smells quite natural and herby (if that makes sense ha!) which I can't say I love but I don't hate it so it doesn't put me off using it as some smells can be quite overpowering but this is more on the natural side.
I just think this stuff is bloody amazing and I can see it being a saviour on those super dry areas and can see my feet being in pretty sandals in no time!
Oh and Victoria Beckham uses this. What is good enough for Victoria is good enough for me!
Nick Chavez Beverly Hills - Plump N'Thick Leave-In Thickening Mist
I must admit I do quite like this but not enough to feel happy that I have another one so I think I will be getting in contact and explain that I have already recieved this, not too sure if anything can be done but it's worth a go!
I can't say I have seen anyone else getting this product so maybe I am just unlucky!
Lifestyle Extra - Paname Paris Mirror
I love the little extras that Birchbox put in the boxes each month and this time it's a mirror. This is so handy to have in my bag but the thing I'm a little confused is that Birchbox are claiming that this is £7.50! I wouldn't pay £7.50 for this and it's not even a compact mirror and really isn't worth that much but never-the-less it's a handy product to have in the handbag!
So there we have April's box done and dusted!
The stand out product is the Weleda Skin Food as its amazing and I can see it becoming a holy grail item for me!
