BirchBox | April 2013


I am back again with April's BirchBox. Hope your not getting to fed up of me, three posts in less in then 24 hours. This months BirchBox is called In Bloom. I reckon it's all to do with spring beginning winter ending and flowers blooming as well as yourself. Wish i could say same for my skin, i swear it's something i am using need to cut out each product one by one until i find the culprit but for now lets talk about whats inside.

Feel free to enlarge the picture at any time for a better look.

Lifestyle extra | Birchbox Paname Paris Mirror
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
This is a cute little extra. Very summery with it's Let The Sunshine In design. A perfect size to pop in your handbag for them little touch-ups throughout the day. This is obviously a full-size product and costs £7.50.

WeledaSkin Food

  Birchbox says; Victoria Beckham is just one star that swears by this all-natural moisturiser which softens dry heels and elbows with ease. We love it. Full-size £8.95. I got 10ml. I can't stop smelling this it smells absolutely gorgeous, very fruity with a slight floral scents. Reminds me of summer. I am one who tends to get slight dry patches on my face but recently have been getting them on my arms too, my skin use to be perfect i am beginning to think it's me getting older or i am just going through the teen spotty stage now. Blag! 

Natio Gentle Forming Facial Cleanser
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
Birchbox says; An effective wash which omits traditional lathering chemicals to prevent skin feeling taut and dry. Full size £6.80. I got 20ml. Was happy to receive this, can't go wrong with a facial cleanser. 

Gerda Spillmann Renaissance Age Serum
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
Birchbox says; Keep up your youthful appearance this spring with this antioxidant-enriched hero serum. Add it to your routine for fresh, supple skin for all ages. Full size £69.00. I got 3ml. It's a tiny sample, but decent to the usual sachet samples you can get with other products.

La Societe Parisienne De Savons Soap
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Birchbox says; Fresh scents characterise these soaps by La Societe Parisienne De Savons, and - bonus - the retro packaging will look fab in your bathroom! Full-size £8.50. I got full size these are ten euros on the official website. I love France and go on my holidays most years there so get this soap was nice. I absolutely love the natural and handmade products that come from the markets over there, everyone seems to be so talented. The soap as a very fresh scent. 

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Birchbox says; Add a pop of subtle colour with this sheer-but-buildable lip stick. Once you've worn your sample down, just use a sharpener to refresh! Full-size £17.50. I think this is full size, it looks like full size. I don't get what it means by use a sharpener to refresh. The product comes in a plastic pen type packaging and is certainly something i wouldn't like to sharpen apart from the fact it's way to big to sharpen. The end doesn't twist to allow more product either so for £17.50 you don't seem to get a lot of product for the money. It's also a bit of a waste of packaging if thats all you get product wise. I tried to find some info on this without much luck. You may have better luck then me if you decide to have a snoop, please let me know. Anyhow the shade was a beautiful pinky/red called Perfect Kiss and is a great shade for spring/summer. My photo doesn't see the colour at it's full potentional it is a little brighter. It does glide on really well and is quite moisturising and a little glossy. It is build-able for a more intense colour. This can be used as a cheek tint too. Update: This isn't full size, the full size product as a twisty bottom to get more product out. I still don't get the sharpen thing though. It's a waxy, glossy product in a plastic comparment. If you have an idea then please feel free to leave a comment.

All in all, i am happy with everything i got even the age serum even though i am only 22 lol. I am really puzzled about the Mirenesse lip product but i am still glad to have received this product. Once again a lovely selection of goodies from Birchbox and everything smells lovely too. You can purchase majority of the products in this months box in Birchbox e-shop and online.

What do you think? Are you as excited about the stuff in this months box.
