April 2016 Birchbox

As always, I was over excited when my April Birchbox arrived. What I wasn’t expecting was to completely ❤ love ❤ this month’s box! This monthly subscription box never disappoints me, but this one was on point. They even sent me a bonus this month giving me 6 items instead of 5! This month I waited to post this until after I had tried all the products so I’m able to give you guys my reviews on them as well! So let’s get started!

***If you are viewing from a mobile device or tablet, our full disclosure is at the bottom of this page.***
***If you are using a Computer, <<—- please refer to the left sidebar.***

Birchbox is a monthly subscription box service that sends out 5 monthly beauty samples for only $10 per month, and each box contains products valued more than that! If you haven’t already checked them out or subscribed, you can GO HERE to see what they’re all about.

FAQ-
Q-What do you like so much about Birchbox?
A-For starters, we love the price. Also that you get to customize the products you will be receiving that month by using sample choice. These products are all tailored to your profile and what you like, so how you fill out your info, is how they decide what products to put in your monthly box. We also love that they have a very rewarding point system setup that allows you to earn points by referring friends, and reviewing the products you get in your box. You receive at least 50 points each month just for doing the reviews, and that equals $5 in the birchbox shop. These are easily saved up for rewards, or products of your choice in the Shop!
Q-Does Birchbox do promotions, or have money off your first box?
A-Yes! They often do promotions for new subscribers, as well as sending out special products and bonuses to their current members! You can check out the latest promotions HERE.

❤ The First product I got (from left to right) is the Marcelle 3 in 1 Micellar Solution. It’s a toner and makeup remover that’s gentle for sensitive skin, but still strong enough to take off all makeup.  The full size costs $21, and can be found HERE. I have already replaced my everyday makeup remover with this product, it doesn’t dry my face out, and even removes some of the hardest waterproof and liquid liners. I’m not sure about mascara, as my eyelashes are still growing back from my last trich mishap.
Sample value estimate- $2.10

❤ Briogeo-Don’t despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. This is a hair mask that is ultra-hydrating and conditioning hair mask that also strengthens your hair at the same time. This smells amazing, and definitely does what it’s made to do. My hair felt like silk after I used this just one time, and the sample size i received has about 2 uses in it for the length of my hair. If your hair is shorter you would get more out of it, but mine is very long still even after my recent cut so it doesn’t last as long for me. The Full Sized product price is $26 (can be found here) so that puts this sample value at $3.25.
Ouidad
❤ Malin + Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser– This facial cleanser is made to balance the skins natural ph levels, cleanse the face and even clear up breakouts. While I don’t ever get breakouts, I do love that it cleanse your face well with a nice scent and feel as your using it. I have noticed that my face looks more refreshed after application, and feels softer for a longer amount of time after using it. I would recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin or breakouts, or anyone who loves great smelling cleansers. This product costs $32 for Full sized-HERE– Putting a value of $4 on my sample!

❤ Bonus Product! Malin + Goetz Facial Moisturizer-This one was my Bonus product this month, and the first bonus I received this year in my Birchbox. While was happy getting a moisturizer in my box this month, I do wish this sample was bigger, instead of in a foil packet. I love moisturizers and use them multiple times a day for my extremely dry skin. So this product for me was a one-day use. It did a good job hydrating my skin, wasn’t oily, and seemed to stay moisturized for a few hours, but a bigger size would have helped me review this a bit more to decide if I would want to buy it again. This is the lowest valued sample of this box, coming in at a $1.15 sample value. The full sized can be found HERE and costs $46 for a 4oz product.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Strumpet– This sample is actually over half the size of a full sized product, and after using it a few times I’ve realized that this one will last a long time. You only need the smallest little drop of this product because it goes a LONG WAY. I’m no over-exaggerating either. That one little drop will stain your finger (if that’s what you use to apply with-I tried it that way first-and will still cover your entire lips with a cute red color.) I can see this product lasting a long time because of this and I’m fine with that! The full size is $16 HERE– and gives this sample value $8!
Wei Beauty free ship $65
Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask– This sample was one I was most excited about! I have been wanting to try these masks for awhile now, but haven’t felt up to forking over the cash for something I wasn’t sure I’d like. This was the first Mud mask I have ever tried, and I’m hooked. I loved the feeling of this, and how far the product actually goes. The small container the mask comes in is actually a full sized capsule. When you buy the full sized product priced at $42, you get 8 of them instead of just 1, and one of these will give you two uses! (that’s how many I got from it, I do think you are supposed to apply the whole thing, but i wanted to get more than one use from it…it also doesn’t take much to go a long way and feel the same result.) You also get a nice little application brush with the full sized purchase as well.
This product left my face super soft, and glowing. It felt nice on the skin, even though I looked like I had just fallen into a huge puddle face first 🙂 If you haven’t tried a mud mask before, this one will make you a believer and may even hook you like it did me after just one use. You can find this product HERE. This sample size came in with a value of $5.25

Total box value-$23.75
Thanks to my bonus product this month I also got 60 points($6) to spend in the Birchbox Shop after I reviewed them, so it’s almost like getting the box for $4 this month!

  1. So I’ve been debating trying a Micellar solution since I’ve been having relations to my regular makeup remover, and your review of it makes it sound promising! ALSO I was surprised to read that you have trich, since I do too! It’s under a decent handle at the moment but not even owning mascara for the longest time was so rough. You got this!!

    1. I loved it after trying it and was lucky enough to get it in this month’s box to make up my mind. I had the same problem with my old one to the point where I started resorting back to just water is baby soap. I absent had a reaction to this yet and have used it everyday since I got it. I hope it works great for you also! I’m glad to hear you have your trich under control. I had given away so many mascaras that I never even had a chance to use its sad. I have a few still that are taunting me because I still can’t use them.

      1. Yup, that’s how they get you to buy more.😜. My fave is Sarah Mcnamera miracle Skin Transformer, spf, moisturizer, and a bb cream in one.👍🏻 A Birchbox sample got me hooked on that one… Thanks for visiting my blog too btw!

      2. Nice, well I definitely recommend it. If you’re relatively low maintenance it’s easy to apply, quick, and leaves you looking more natural(not packed on foundation) just with better skin!😜😊
