April 2015 Birchbox Deconstructed #Birchbox

Wednesday, April 22, 2015
Just as I was seriously considering canceling my Birchbox subscription, Birchbox has stepped up its game and sent some fabulous goodies in this month's box. I'm thrilled with receiving some new items to try as well as two that I have used before but that have become beauty staples.

Here's what was in this month's Birchbox:

1. POP Beauty Eyeshadow Palette (Received sample. Full size, $26)
I received this item but in a different color palette in a previous Birchbox and loved it the first time around. So, I was thrilled to get another one in a palette which has all of my favorite colors.

2.  Real Chemistry 3-Minute Peel (Received sample. Full size, $48)
I love getting samples of peels and exfoliators because I don't generally buy them since they have a tendency to aggravate my rosacea. This one was gentle to use almost daily, and it made my skin feel instantly smoother and softer.

3.  Obliphica Professional Hair Serum (Received sample. Full size, $38)
This serum could not have been sent at a better time. My hair ends are dry, and I am overdue for a cut, but this serum has breathed new life into my hair until I am able to schedule my appointment for a trim.

4. Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream (Received sample. Full size, $20)
I had received this in a previous Birchbox but in a different scent. Ever since I received that first sample, I have been coming back for more. I was surprised by how much I didn't miss a foaming shaving cream when I started using Whish. But you can't beat the moisturizing properties of this shaving cream.

5.  Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain (Received sample. Full size, $25)
This stuff is a game changer, people. It adjusts to our skin tone for a natural and customized shade. When I opened the tube, I thought it would never work. It was very light in color...not typical of a stain. But once you put it on, the magic happens. The color was the perfect shade for my skin tone. This will definitely be finding a permanent home amidst my beauty products.

All items available for purchase through the links above.
