Birchbox Review: April Edition

Posted in Beauty
on April 20, 2016


I have never been more excited to share a Birchbox review with you guys. This was easily my favorite box I’ve received since December. Needless to say, Happy Birthday to me!

Not only was the box adorable (I am keeping it forever, not kidding) but I loved every single product in the box. So, if you’re looking for a review that has negative comments, you will be disappointed. I have never felt so tempted to purchase every one of the items in my Birchbox, so I’m happy to say that this month’s box was incredible. Let’s get into the review!


Acure Organics Pore Minimizing Facial Scrub | $12.99

There is nothing better than finding a high-quality product that won’t break the bank. I love this face scrub because it’s inexpensive, but you see results quickly. It’s a vegan scrub that has Moroccan red clay to remove any impurities from your skin. It’s also perfect for all skin types, so you won’t have to worry about it irritating your skin.

Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Coco | $36-$85

It’s difficult for me to fall in love with a scent because I’m incredibly picky. I like my scents to be more sweet than floral based, but not too sweet where I smell like a walking fruit stand. Purchasing perfumes is no easy task. However, I am obsessed with this perfume because it’s the perfect combination of soft, floral scents and fruity scents. It has notes of coconut, vanilla and heliotrope, which create a combination that makes you feel like you’re on a tropical island.

Davines OI All-In-One Milk | $30

            Bonus: Shampoo and Conditioner | $28-$34

You guys know that I’m not a big fan of hair products. First, I think spending a ton of money of hair products you don’t need is a waste. But, this all-in-one milk is a leave-in treatment that not only adds shine to your hair, but it also helps to detangle your hair, and works as a heat protector. So, instead of going out and buying three different hair treatments, you can buy this and it will work for everything you need.

This also came with a bonus sample of the Davines absolute beautifying shampoo and conditioner. While their price range for their products is far more than I can personally afford, I wouldn’t rule this out as an option if I’m looking to invest in a high-quality shampoo and conditioner duo. Maybe this will be something I add to my birthday or Christmas list each year in hopes someone will buy it for me! I noticed that my hair felt sleek, shiny and refreshed after two uses of this shampoo and conditioner.


POP Beauty Matte Velvet Lipstick | $24 (set of 3)

Holy pigmentation! Not only was the quantity of this product impressive, but it also has a gorgeous color (shade Cozy Crimson). I feel like I could easily incorporate this color into my makeup routine throughout the year regardless of the season. Plus, I was looking for a versatile, red lip. If you’re not into matte lipsticks, this might not be for you. But you can always add a gloss on top for a softer finish.

Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream | $32

I am all about CC creams. As much as I love the Stila Color Correcting CC Cream, $44 is a little pricey for the product. I love that this is a little less expensive, but it also gives my skin a flawless finish. What’s best about this product is that although it’s lightweight on your skin, it still covers any imperfections you may have. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to lighten your makeup routine for spring and summer.

There’s a 100 percent chance that I will be purchasing these products. Although I am happy that I had such a positive experience with my Birchbox this month, I’m sad that I loved everything SO much that I need to buy it all.
