Birchbox UK April 2014Friday, April 25, 2014
This month's theme is inspired by local food markets, the kitchen and all of our favourite eateries. These samples feature delicious scents and foodie elements.
I was waiting for this month's box with huge excitement and when it arrived I was equally happy and disappointed. I was looking forward to discover the TommyGuns Pomegranate shampoo in the April box but unluckily I don't think my profile met the criteria. Anyway, I am glad at least to have been given the option to choose a nail polish colour that I liked most (out of the 4 Birchbox was offering this month). I chose a beautiful pearly green colour and couldn't wait to try it on my nails.
Campos De Ibiza Almendra Body Milk - Mine is a sample size 38ml. RRP £16.55. I get never tired of a box when there is a body milk inside. I love to try different moisturisers. Luckily my skin is not very sensitive (except for my face) and I can use different brands and different lotions, body milks, body butters and oils without affecting my skin too much. It is a very light and quickly-absorbed almond body milk to hydrate skin. The smell is not very strong and leaves skin very neutral.
Lord & Berry Couture Kohl Kaja Eye Pencil - RRP £10. I do not use eye pencils or liners but I think I might try it. It is very easy to apply and the pencil is so smooth and soft. It will also look good when smudged I think.
TheBalm Cosmetics How 'Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream - £26 for palette. An easy to blend cream offers gorgeous, long-lasting colour to cheeks and lips. It is a super miniature version and my fingertip can barely get any cream on it but already at first touch it is amazing. This cream is super soft and looks very nice on lips.
Color Club Gala's Gems Nail Polish - £15 for set of 4. Birchbox gave me the option to choose between 4 different colours and I picked this green one called "Breakfast At...". This is part of an exclusive set put together by Spanish fashion blogger Gala Gonzalez and Birchbox. The colour is an absolutely beautiful emerald pearl. I wear reds most of all which made me want to mix up my nail polish collection a bit.
Yes To Cucumbers Facial Wipes - RRP £4.99. These facial cucumber and aloe vera towelettes are perfect for traveling as they cleanse, remove make up and nourish skin with just one swipe. Of course you can use these not only on your trip but whenever you are in a hurry or just need to clean your skin.
Overall, I am pleased with my April Birchbox and enjoyed their food theme a lot!
