The April Birchbox

That Christmas-come-early feeling always seems to strike when I open my Birchbox. There’s something so satisfying about not knowing what you’re going to get and the sheer delight when you discover a little beauty gem! Here’s a round up of the April Birchbox.

Let’s start with the Sweet Caramel & Vanilla popcorn from Propercorn that I ate immediately on arrival – it was delicious and only 40 calories. I’m always looking for a cheeky snack that’s relatively guilt-free so I may just have to go and check this out at the supermarket!

I was delighted to receive a Laura Mercier Ambre Vanilla Souffle Body Cr̬me. I absolutely adore the entire bath and body range from Laura Mercier and I already use their hand cream, body butter and bath salts in the almond coconut milk scent. This one smells divine and I plan to crack it open next time I go travelling Рwhat a great mini!

I was also so excited to receive the Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes aka the new-generation face wipes! Gone are the days when face wipes were formulated from cheap ingredients. These ones are paraben-free and 95% natural. They also do remove make up pretty well. Again, I’ll be saving the rest of these for my up-coming travels!

Next comes the Cheek & Lip Cream from The Balm, which is going straight into my handbag. I really like the colour for both my cheeks and lips, and the texture is really soft and easily blended into the skin. The Colour Club Nail Polish in Aquamarine Azulino is a pearlescent pastel blue shade perfect for Spring. Finally, the Lord & Berry Couture Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil is fantastic – I’ve spoken about the Lord & Berry Shining Lip Crayons here, which are honestly one of my holy grail lip products. When it comes to eye pencils, Lord & Berry just get the job done – long lasting, easy to blend and pigmented.
