April Birchbox

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.  
Wanting to share in the excitement and fun?  You should totally try it out for a month and see what you think!  Click here —>Birchbox

  1. We had some of the same things in our Birchbox this week! (I'm posting my review tomorrow!) Have you tried the Grains bar yet? It's going in my lunch box tomorrow 🙂 I also received the same nail polish. I haven't tried it but love the subtle color.
