Birchbox – April 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.

What’s On My Nails – TheBalm I’ll Pink To That and China Glaze Snow Globe

TheBalm I'll Pink To That and China Glaze Snow Globe

In last month’s January MyGlam bag I received the perfect pink nail polish for Valentine’s Day.  The Balm’s I’ll Pink To That is a bright cream pink color with no sparkle or shimmer.

I added a bit of interest by putting two coats of the glitter nail polish Snow Globe by China Glaze on my ring fingers over the two coats of The Balm’s I’ll Pink To That nail polish.

Have a fabulous Valentine’s Day!!
