Birchbox: April 2013

 
It's Birchbox time! I got my April box in the mail, and the theme for this month is "tiny tweaks, big results". I couldn't love this theme, more. It's those small changes that really make a difference when it comes to feeling good from the inside out. For this month's box, Birchbox teamed up with Women's Health, to bring us tried and tested products that will help add a little positive pizzazz to our lifestyle.

I have to admit, when I first saw the contents in the box, I didn't think I would be very thrilled with the products. But after playing around with them a bit, it turns out that I am very happy with the items I received. They all fit in nicely with the theme, and they were all a pleasure to try.




Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle: This nourishing leave in conditioner is not only great for all hair types, but it also contains a load of hair care benefits that many are sure to love. This offers thermal and UV protection, it smooths hair, locks in color, detangles, and adds shine, just to name a few. I spritzed a bit of this on towel dried hair and the outcome was amazing! After blow drying, my hair was so much softer than usual, and this made my hair smell so good. This didn't weight down my hair either, which is a plus. I think once I am done with this sample, I am going to invest in the full size. (Full Size: $21.95)


Caudalie Divine Oil: This multipurpose oil can be used on the skin, hair, and nails. It's made up of grape, argan, sesame, and hibiscus oils. I love the woody fragrance, and I can't wait to try it on the ends of my hair and cuticles. (Full Size: $9-49)


LAFACE Laboratories BEAUX YEUX Beautiful Eyes Concentrate Intensive: My eye area is constantly in need of moisture, so eye creams are always a must have for me. This one contains hyaluronic acid which helps boost moisture, and an advanced peptide complex to halt the formation of wrinkles. I tried a bit of this under my eye area and since the consistency of this eye cream is on the thin side, a little bit of product goes a long way. I found this to spread easily and it absorbed right away. My eye area was definitely left feeling smoother and supple. (Full Size: $160)


Supergoop! Daily Correct SPF 35 CC Cream: First BB creams and now CC creams! This CC cream helps cover and correct, while offering UVA, UVB, and infrared A-Ray protection. Supergoop!'s CC cream did even out my skin tone a bit, and the light to medium shade was a great match for me. But I am one who prefers more coverage so I don't think I would use this on it's own. I bet it would be fab under foundation, though. This CC cream blended in nicely, and it felt really light on my skin. (Full Size: $32)


Hail Merry Chocolate Macaroons: I just love receiving healthy treats in my Birchbox. These macaroons are gluten free, vegan, and made with only natural, pure ingredients. These were so yummy! They had a strong chocolate taste, and that bit of coconut really gave it a delicious extra kick. Loved these! (Full Size: $5)
