April BirchBox unboxing

Hey Cats!

This Month Birchbox has teamed up with Rifle Paper Co. to bring us our April box and let me just say right now that It’s been a LOOOOONG time since I’ve gotten a box that I absolutely love. It’s times like this that my decision to keep getting birchbox is a great thing. DSC_0956


The Box is gorgeous and beautifully decorated with bright colors and flowers

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator $28

Cynthia Rowley BeautyThis velvety highlighter leaves skin radiant with a subtle, slightly shimmery glow. Dab onto brow bones, cheekbones, nose, or anywhere you’d like to accent, and blend well.’

I’ve been trying to master the art of highlighting, so this seems to have come at a great time, plus I love Cynthia Rowley products so I was very excited to get this!

Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Mist Retail: $20


‘Weightless spray that addes shine, controls frizz, and safeguards hair from UV rays. Think of this as sunscreen for your hair: Spritz on generously before sun exposure.”

So I work in an office 8 hours out of the day, I then go to school 3-4 hours (depending on the day) so I don’t often go out in the sun, but on the weekends when I have time I do hike, so I guess I will just have to use this on those days.

Jane Iredale  Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain.  Retail: $25

Jane Iredale

“This multitasking, long-lasting color adjusts to your skin for a natural, customized shade. Glide onto lips. Dab onto cheeks and blend well.”

The sample is a little small, but so cute! I doubt I will use this on my cheeks but I will definitely use this on my lips. I’ve never used this brand before but I will be looking into the other products.

Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm. Retail: $29

Temple Spa

‘Part skincare, part aromatherapy, this lush cream nourishes the skin and calms the mind. Smooth this botanical-based formula onto body, face, or hands, and enjoy the soothing scent.’

I have so many lotions, however this is suppose to have a calming effect so I have put this a head of the others and on those days were work is just too much and everything seems to go wrong hopefully this will help.

WEI Manuka Bee Venom Mask. Retail: $60


‘This treatment firms, softens, and minimizes fine lines, with a warm tingle as it works. Brush mask onto clean face, avoiding eyes, 1-2 times weekly. Wait 10 minutes, then rinse.”

So this also came with a warning that if you are allergic to bees to not use this product. I don’ t think I am allergic to bees, well we’ll see if there is an update and it’s bad news well, then we know!

I am so happy I did not get a facial cleanser, or a champagne color eyeshadow like I seemed to get every month from my subscriptions, and I will be using everything from this month’s box! This has renewed my enthusiasm for Birchbox that I may get excited when I see it in the mail!

Do you get Birchbox? How did you like this month’s box?
