Birchbox – April 2012

April 17, 2012

birchbox april 2012

I think Birchbox is on a pretty good roll lately.  This month’s box was filled with some good stuff.  I was worried for a couple of months that they were on a downward spiral but they seem to be coming back around.

After last month’s awesome Teen Vogue Birchbox, I was expecting not to like this one.  But happily, this month’s Birchbox was really good!  The theme of this month’s box is Natural Wonders.

Here’s what I got:

Weleda Pomegranate Firming Night Cream (0.23oz) – An interesting blend of Turkish pomegranate, jojoba and macadamia nut oils in a cream form to reduce wrinkles.

Alima Pure Organic Nourishing Tinted LipBalm (0.07oz, full size!) – This balm is made with plant butters and scented with organic peppermint oil.  I received the color Rhubarb which is a nice medium pink color.  It feels really great on my lips, makes them soft with a touch of color.  This full size item sells for $7 at
