Some of my absolute favorite things in the world come in the mail. Birchbox is one of them. It’s like a monthly surprise grab box of beauty, skin, and hair products and always makes me smile, even when I’m not in love with every single item.
This month was no different.
Birchbox April 2014
Atelier Cologne in Cedrat Enivrant – This smells exactly like Gin + Tonics. Seriously, the lime, the boozy scent of the alcohol, it smells a bit like summer and a bit like… well, college for me because that used to be my drink of choice. I love this scent, but it’s not really a “daily wear” scent for me, which is what I’ve been looking for. (Value $3.25)
Color Club Gala’s Gems Collection in Heirloom Pearls – Love this color! I’ve been wanting to wear a white nail look. However, I was reminded that I’m really not a big fan of Color Club’s formula. This was thick and streaky, and didn’t go on evenly. I will give this a try again, but I would never buy a full size. (Value $3.25)
Sumita Beauty Color Contrast Eyeliner Mini in Jamun (Deep Plum) – This glides on like a dream! I absolutely love the formula – goes on easily, but doesn’t budge! This is a nice deep plum color, which is a great neutral that’s less harsh in black. (Value $5.50)
Keims Hair Care Cleanshine Energizing Shampoo – This smells nice and refreshing! I haven’t tried this one yet, but the scent is definitely energizing as described! :) (Value $2)
Kind Healthy Grains Chewy Granola Square in Maple + Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt – D and I both tried and enjoyed this. It reminds me a lot of the Nature’s Path granola bars, if you’re familiar with the Pumpkin flavor. It’s pretty sweet and a little salty. These would be great to pack for a long car ride since they’re satisfying and don’t take up much space! (Value $1.50)
