April 2015 Birchbox + Product Reviews

By Friday, April 17, 2015 0 Permalink 0


Hi! I received my Birchbox a few days ago and wanted to start doing product reviews for what I received. First off, I love love love the box itself this month. For the past couple of months Birchbox has been designing their boxes and this months box was designed by RiflePaperCo which is a company I love looking to for my own design inspiration.

Beaver Professional Hydro Nutritive Moisturizing Shampoo | Full Size $15

I’m on the fence about this shampoo. I did feel my hair nourished but it also felt a bit heavy on my hair so it’s probably not an every day shampoo. Though if your hair needs a moisture boost I would recommend this. The smell is also light and not overpowering but it does leave your hair smelling clean.

Stars: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ 4/5

Beaver Professional Hydro Nutritive Repairing Conditioner | Full Size $16

If I were to purchase the shampoo or the conditioner I would buy the shampoo. My only problem with the conditioner is that it doesn’t distribute in your hair easily so I believe I ended up using more conditioner than shampoo and usually it’s the opposite for me. That was the only downside to the conditioner. However, unlike the shampoo my hair didn’t feel weighed down which was nice and it rinsed out cleanly without the feeling of residue.
Stars: ☆ ☆ ☆  3/5

Clean Original Eau de Parfum | Full Size $69

Like the brand says, the smell of this is clean light and fragrant. It has a flowery undertone smell but it also has a lemon scent. It’s a great day perfume but for my own personal preference I prefer a smell that is not too overpowering. But if you do like clean, fresh, lemon, and airy smells this might be perfect for you.
Stars: ☆ ☆ ☆  3/5

Harvey Prince Hello Body Butter | Full Size $20

This was my favorite item in my box and most of it has to do with the smell. The lotion absorbs quickly into your skin and leaves a fragrance mix of shea butter, almonds, and a light tone of florals. I saved it in my favorites to purchase next time I need to buy body butter.
Stars: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ 4/5

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain | Full Size $25

I received this in the ‘Forever Pink’ shade and it’s surprisingly lovely as a lip stain. It’s in a lip balm type tube and you can put it on like a lipstick and it gives you a natural bright color on your lips. However using it as a cheek stain didn’t work for me because it’s extremely light and it didn’t show up on my skin at all. And it did brighten up my lips to a subtle pink shade which was just great especially for an every day wear.

I broke down the stars as follows for this one:
Lip Stain: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ 4/5
Cheek Stain: ☆ 1/5
Price: ☆ ☆ 2/5
Overall: ☆ ☆ ☆  3/5
