April Birchbox

I like this box. It reminds me of Spring and my Grandma.

The card says, "There's a reason they call it spring. The fresh blooms and fresh air have put a bounce in our step, and we're thrilled to update our look (hello, new colors and trends). Even your Birchbox has gotten in on the fun: This month's box features an exclusive print designed by Rifle Paper Co. Founded by a genius husband-and-wife duo, the brand is known for its stunning illustrations and covetable stationary - we love them, and hope you do too!" The back of the card has a list of all the products in the box, and a description.

Clean Original Eau de Parfum: "This airy scent blends light fruits and florals for a freshly washed feeling. Spritz onto pulse points like wrists, neck, and behind the knees." I have had samples of this perfume before. It smells like laundry detergent. I can't make my mind up if I like it or not. At times it is a pleasant smell to me.

Not Soap, Radio Body Wash - Bathing with sharks: "This richly foaming cleanser has an energizing, beachy scent. Massage generously into damp skin, then rinse away - or add a dollop to your bath." It smells good to me. I will use this in the shower. I like using these kinds of body washes instead of bars of soap. I am still finishing all the Lush shower gels and Fortune Cookie body wash, but I can add this to the mix.

Paula's Choice RESIST 25% Vitamin C Spot Treatment: "This concentrated treatment fades dark spots, combats redness, and minimizes fine lines. At night, lightly pat onto dark spots and wrinkles. Wear SPF during the day." I have heard nothing but good things about this brand. I will try it out. I am skeptical about products like this because I'm not sure I see them working.

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain: "This multitasking, long-lasting color adjusts to your skin for a natural, customized shade. Glide onto lips. Dab onto cheeks and blend well." I like products like this. I will have to try it out. I think the shade is Forever Pink.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel: "This acid-free peel gently exfoliates for instantly softer, smoother, brighter skin. Apply to clean face and massage to slough off dully, dry skin. Rinse away." I haven't exfoliated by face for a while. I probably should get back to doing that. Don't they say you should do it once a week? I can't remember. 

This will be fun to experiment with these new products this month. It seems like the IPSY bag had more makeup in it, and the Birchbox had more skincare.
