April's Birchbox review!


How can another month have gone past already?!

The last month has been so busy, that I have been finding it really difficult to get online to sit down and blog. I have really missed it! But only three more weeks until the end of my university term and then I am free for the summer! So the countdown is truly beginning for the start of my first trip to the US! (I am so excited) So today's blogpost is featuring this months edition of my Birchbox subscription. This month I felt a little bit let down by the box, so read on to find out what I thought! 

 First of all this months box was designed by US cult stationary brand 'Rifle Paper Company'. Earlier on in the month I received an email to chose which box I wanted and this design was the one I went for. (Incase your wondering why the bottom of this box is different to the options given on the website, I swapped with my brothers girlfriend as her favourite colour is mint and we thought it went nicely!) Another thing about this months box was the fact that every box was receiving a Benefit sample which initially I was really excited about, until I saw it was the same samples that are always being given out! I mean come on, what about some hoola or rockateur!



 So this is the 'selection' of products that I received this month. As you can kind of see, it's not that exciting! First of all I got a Parlour detangling leave in conditioner. I am yet to try this product out, but I also received another leave in product last month which I am still using and don't think that I am going to be getting much use from this! Then I got the Kueshi, Foot Care Cream.  I just want to add that I love a foot cream. I am one of those weird people who love to take care of both hands and feet so am always looking for a foot cream that will do the job. With that being said I kind of didn't expect to receive one in a box where all the other products are not that interesting! Next was the Nuxe oil. This product kind of doubles up as a hair, hands and face oil. (A little bit like the previous two products mentioned from this box!). I am yet to try this, but am excited to see if it will make a difference over a cream formula! Then for the Benefit sample. I recieved They're Real, and if you know me you will know I have been using this mascara for the past 3 years. So I am kind of happy with this as out of the possible four to receive this is probably my second favourite! I am going to put it away and save it for my trip to the states! Finally I got a Cynthia Rowley Eyeliner which is a Birchbox exclusive. This was probably the most exciting thing in the box this month for me as I am finally getting into using eyeliner. I have never really been one to experiment with heavy eye makeup but recently decided to give it a go and have been loving it. Although I am not sure that winged eyeliner is in my future just yet!

 In conclusion I was a little disapointed with this months box. Most of the products are pretty much the same, boring and to be honest I wouldn't have paid £12 for it if I had known what was inside! I think that I may have to change my settings to see if I would receive different things inside!

Did you get this month's Birchbox? Did you get similar things to me or is your box like 200000000X better than mine!? 

Thanks for reading this blogpost!
I hope you have a lovely rest of your week! 
Lots of love,

  1. Even just the box is amazing. Great pictures, I like your fluffy background. Would you say it's worth it to make a subscription myself?

    1. Thanks for the comment!
      It is a good subscription box, although there are some boxes where you get products that your unsure about!

      Thanks again
