April Birchbox


I got my first Birchbox in the mail the other day and I am so excited to try all of the organic products! I have already tried three of the products and I really like them so far!


{All the goodies in my Birchbox!}

From left to right:
The Healthy Body Butter in Vanilla Lavender
LIV GRN- earth Eau de Parfum
Zoya Nail Polish Swatch and booklet &
Zoya Plish in Jules
Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer
Seed paper by Bloomin

I have not tried all of the products yet, but of the ones I have tried, I like. The Healthy Body Butter is great. The smell is fragrant and to me is a bit earthy, which is fitting due to the fact that it's organic. I used on my hands and it left them feeling so soft. The combination of the Vanilla Lavender and my skin leaves them smelling better than it does when in the container. I love when that happens because then the scent is more unique. This happens to be the case with the LIV GRN parfum as well. When I first sniffed the perfume, I was not a fan. It reminded me of hairspray, but when I tested it on my hand, the scent changed. It smelled more flowery and soft, and now I can't stop smelling my hand! The last product I have tried so far is the Zoya nail polish. I really like the quality of the polish. It is thick and goes on clean and smooth, the only thing I didn't love is the color. It washes out my skin tone, but other than that I am a Zoya fan. I would love to purchase the Caitlin (bluish-purple), Marley (soft purple), or Gemma (grayish-green) polish. And for $8, its worth it.
Another product I love is the Seed paper from Bloomin. Even though its not a beauty product, I love the idea! I am also a sucker for flowers, and I am very excited to plant my seed paper!
I am also excited to use the Juice Beauty products. I love trying new face products and I love masks. They really rejuvenate my skin and hopefully the Green Apple Peel will be a big hit!
This was a great first Birchbox! I am so excited to see what comes next month! Are you subscribed to Birchbox? If not, you should totally join! If you decide to do a monthly subscription, it's only $10 dollars! That's a pretty good bargain, especially for the great products you get to sample and the sizes are pretty generous. Hope you have a great day!

Here's the website if you want to look around and maybe subscribe!

I have been looking at Birchbox of a little bit but can't decide if it is worth it or not. I know you said this was your first one but what did you think?? Would you recommend it??

So far I am pleased with my Birchbox.I love trying new products and being introduced to new brand names, and for $10 a month it's a great way to discover new products. I would recommend it for sure!
