April is officially half over and I’m on my way to Arizona for a quick trip to see Fishy. Just my luck to get my April Birchbox right before I left!
This month, Birchbox couldn’t have done a more outstanding job. I loved absolutely EVERYTHING except one little bitty thing. But really, well done Birchbox! Well done.
Atelier Cologne – Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolute ($1.05)
Finally a perfume that didn’t make me want to barf from a horrible headache. In fact, I instantly started dabbing it all over my body. Even C came in later and asked what that pleasant smell was. The scent on my neck actually made him linger for a sniff, a rare but welcomed change in affection! This perfume has a lovely fresh scent of oranges. At first you think, oranges? Really? Yes, really. It’s fresh. It’s inviting. And it’s perfect for spring. I asked C if I should buy it and he said, and I quote, “oh, yeah, I would!”
BeeKind – Body Lotion ($1.89)
Made by my newest favorite Gilchrist & Soames, this was a really fresh lotion. I loved the citrus scent and thought this would be perfect as a kitchen had lotion. It’s not as lux as the London Edition but another great hand lotion that did not disappoint!
Color Club – Gala’s Gems Collection ~ Gold Struck ($3.25)
LOVE this nail color. It’s totally simple and totally chic! I remember as a kid having a neighbor lady who always wore pearl nail polish. This great polish takes her pearl to a whole new level. I am definitely a fan!
Sumita – Color Intense Pencil ~ Suman ($2.50)
This was the only sample I didn’t like. The reviews were great but I honestly didn’t like it and it had nothing to so with the fact that it’s makeup. I am a fan of a smudgable eyeliner. This product went on smoothly but then….that was it. It was stuck there, heavy and black. I tried smudging but nothing happened. I tried applying eye shadow to mask and blend the creepy mess but nothing worked. C even said I looked like a clown. I kept catching him staring like I was a massive train wreck!
KIND Snacks – Healthy Grains Bar ~ Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt ($0.79)
All I can say is WOW! If you haven’t noticed yet, I am a weenie with new stuff. I don’t tend to eat grain bars or wear eyeliner for that matter. This grain bar was magnificent! I loved it and secretly wished C hadn’t wanted his half to try. It is so good! I will definitely buy this grain bar in the future. Super tasty!
If my calculations are correct, my April Birchbox had an estimated value of $9.48. Though not reaching the $10.00 purchase price, I am beyond pleased with what was inside.
