my april 2012 birchbox

1. amika nourishing hair mask : I'm excited to try this product because it is supposed to be an intense deep conditioning hair mask. I'm always looking for new deep conditioners, and I'm hoping that the Sea Buckthorn Berry and Argan Oil will make this mask a winner.
2. juice beauty oil-free moisturizer: Juice Beauty is one of the brands that I've discovered through Birchbox. I'm a big fan of their Green Apple Peel, so I'm hoping this moisturizer will be another great find from this certified organic skincare company.
3. wonderstruck perfume by taylor swift: I'm always a bit wary of perfumes created by celebrities. I just feel like they're usually overpriced generic-smelling fragrances. I've only just begun to try out Wonderstruck, but I'm surprised by how much I like it. The perfume contains notes of freesia, green tea, apple blossom, raspberry, and dewberry. 
4. zoya nail polish in lotus true spring collection: I'm not excited about this Zoya polish. Lotus is a dusty grey-lavender with a purple-pink flash of glitter. I love how Zoya polishes apply, so I have high hopes for this shade. 
5. dropps laundry detergent I love these little detergent packs- they make washing clothes so easy, BUT I think it's really odd for them to be in my Birchbox. I'm always happy to get free samples of detergent, but I would've much preferred a beauty product sample. 

Overall, this wasn't my favorite Birchbox. I think that the products I received as samples were fine (except for the dropps), but I wish that the sample sizes would've been as generous as they were in previous boxes. I'm still happy with Birchbox at the moment because I have over 400 points saved with them, so that means I'm eligible to spend $40 in their store :) What did you get in your April Birchbox?


  1. I got the same exact Birchbox and posted about it. Love your blog... I just found you through Heather at JLT.

  2. This is my 2nd month subscription to Birchbox and I like this month's much better than last! Mine Birchbox was a little different than yours.

    I just found your cute blog through the Blog Hop and I wanted to let you know I'm your newest follower:) I hope you can stop by my blog and check it out!

    Have a great Tuesday:)

  3. Hey, thanks for your lovely comment on my blog! Glad I found yours now :) Our subscription boxes are quite different here in the uk, you get quite a varied selection of things in this box! I think that nail varnish will look gorgeous on xxx
