I had so much hope for the beautifully designed April Birchbox* but the contents well and truly let me down. This month, Birchbox teamed up with Rifle Paper Co, an American stationary and lifestyle brand. There were two box designs to choose from. Herb Garden which is what I have and Jardin de Paris which is a pretty floral box. Each box contains an exclusive 25% discount code valid across all products and shipping and there's a Birchbox Plus offer where subscribers can upgrade their boxes to include a pocket notebook duo for just £4.
Just one out of five products excited me and that was Benefit Cosmetics latest beauty drop, Dew The Hoola. I love that Benefit have so many of their products available in sample size, I've been able to try a variety of products I wouldn't usually try thanks to Benefit and Birchbox regularly teaming up and I'm really liking Dew The Hoola for an easy contour and flush of bronze. There were another three brands that regularly appear in Birchbox, I've received the Parlor Detangling Spray and Cynthia Rowley Eyeliner a couple of times now although the Balance Me Wondereye Cream is a new product to try, it's not one I was overly excited about.
The only new brand to me this month was Kueshi, a Foot Care Cream, feet products don't wow me either but it may come in handy the weeks leading up to my holiday. I do love Birchbox the majority of the time and with subscription boxes you're always going to find products you're not going to love, it's just one of those months. The good with Birchbox definitely outweighs the bad and at least I'll have baby soft feet and bronzed cheeks.
Do you subscribe to Birchbox? What did you think of this month's box?
