April Birchbox

Birchbox April

You may remember last month I posted about the You Beauty Discovery box and mentioned how I had originally cancelled my subscription and I joined again when I saw how good that months box was. About a week passed and I somehow ended up on the Birchbox website, I’ve seen many good reviews about these boxes and while on there I decided to cancel my You Beauty Discovery subscription for good and join Birchbox! It’s a little more pricey at £12.95 (inc. postage) however the boxes seem well worth it. I did receive March’s box but decided I would start the reviews with April’s which I’m very impressed with, bar one item.. (vitamins, again?!)

Birchbox April

This month’s box was named ‘Royally Good’ to celebrate the imminent arrival of the new royal baby this month so Birchbox put together a box full of Royally Good products – five luxe beauty samples and a bonus sixth product and you would either receive it all in a blue or pink box. Here is what I received in my box..

Inner Me Energise Me
Now I’m not going to say much about this because if you’ve read my review of this months Look Fantastic box you would know I’m not too keen on receiving food supplements/tablets in these kind of boxes. I won’t be taking these as I already take supplements.

Pommade Divine Nature’s Remedy Balm
This is a multi-purpose balm for use on dry patches, chapped lips, bruises and eczema amongst many other things. This product has been around since 1800 which is amazing and it contains up to 97% natural ingredients. I can’t wait to give this a go!

Percy & Reed Smooth, Sealed & Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil
After not being too keen on the Percy & Reed Volumising Mousse, I wasn’t too impressed to see this in the box. However I have already given it a go and it definitely does a good job! You just apply it to towel-dried hair, dry and style as you desire. Percy & Reed also suggest you warm a little in your palm and lightly run a large blusher brush over it and run the brush over your hair to smooth away flyaways! I tend to have a lot of flyaways so I’m definitely going to give this a try!

Lola Barcelona Nail Polish in Gracia
I’ve never actually heard of Lola Barcelona before but this nail polish is an absolutely gorgeous Fuchsia shade. I don’t have any colour like this in my nail polish collection at the moment so I have a feeling I might be using it a lot. The nail polish is formulated with diamond dust to maintain extra strength and durability which means you can skip the top coat if you’re feeling lazy, which I am most of the time when painting my nails!

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
In my opinion, the best product in this months box comes from Liz Earle. The Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is something I’ve wanted to try for a long time now but I’ve never gone and bought it. So seeing this in the box made me so happy! I like the fact I can now try this out and see how I get along with it without buying a full size bottle, but having used it once already I’m pretty sure I will be purchasing one! An amazing product.

Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Supreme Mascara
I’ve been dying to get my hands on any Laura Mercier product for ages now so when I saw that Birchbox were letting us choose which Laura Mercier sample we could receive I was over the moon. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quick enough to choose the Foundation Primer which was a bit gutting as I’ve heard such good things about it. So it was between the eye pencil and mascara so I chose the mascara. I haven’t tried it yet as I have about a million mascaras lying around but I can’t wait to give it a go.

A really great box this month from Birchbox, alot better than March’s. I’m so glad I signed up!
