April Birchbox

Welcome to my April Birchbox post! This months box was inspired by food so all samples had a food element to them. I think this is such a good theme for a box! 

Yes To Cucumbers Facial Wipes

These look so refreshing I can't wait to try them! And they're the perfect size to take on holiday too! A full size pack would cost you £4.99.

The Balm Cosmetics How 'Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream

I've heard of The Balm Cosmetics but I've never seen their lip and cheek cream. I think this little sample is so cute and the packaging won me over as soon as I opened the box! I received the shade Pie. It's a gorgeous shade that gives a lovely pop of colour. I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of this and I'm very tempted to buy the palette for £26!

Color Club Gala's Gems Nail Polish

I've never heard of Color Club before which I'm rather ashamed about given that I'm a nail varnish addict! This is such a lovely colour and is perfect for spring/summer!

Lord & Berry Couture Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil

I love a good kohl eye pencil so am looking forward to trying this one out. A full size one will cost you £10. 

Campos De Ibiza Almendra Body Milk

I've never heard of this brand before but they claim this body milk absorbs quickly and if it really does then I'm sold! A full size body milk will cost you £16.55.

Propercorn Sweet Coconut & Vanilla

I've heard good things about Propercorn so am looking forward to trying this! Although I'm not convinced about the flavour, but hey I might be pleasantly surprised. 

I think the theme of this month's box was really good and I'm definitely going to get good use out of all of these products. And maybe even buy a full size cheek and lip cream palette! 

Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What did you get in your box? Or have you tried any of these products?



  1. I got the same nail polish! I think its a wonderful colour. And it came just in time because I was going through a green nail polish phase. I haven't tried out the cheek and lip cream, what's it like? I've never used cream blush before?

    1. It's lovely isn't it? The cheek and lip cream is lovely! I'm really into cream blusher at the moment and it's so easy to use. You just dab it on with your finger and pat it in! I haven't tried it on my lips yet though! X

    2. Ah fair enough, thanks. I have a Sleek cream blush and whenever I use it I always feel like I use way too much! xx

    3. I think the trick is to use a little bit at a time and build it up. I've also used it by patting it on with my finger and then blending with a brush which works well for me! I hope you manage to play around with it and find a technique that works for you! X

  2. I'm really on the fence about subscribing to birchbox.I have heard some bad reviews about the box but I really want to try it ! Do you think its worth subscribing too? I really like all the stuff you got in the box this month !! Espesh the eye pencil and nail polish :) x Great post doll x

    1. I would definitely give it a try. I was very 50/50 for a long time having read very mixed reviews but decided to see for myself and so pleased I did because I've really enjoyed receiving it! Even if you just subscribe for 3 months and then if you like it you can subscribe for longer! X
