Birchbox | April 2013

It was a happy day today coming home to this pink box. This month Birchbox collaborated with Women's Health. So the theme is all about changing the little things to make for big results.

 Box Breakdown 
Herban Essentials | Towelettes in Peppermint & Yoga
Mirenesse | Glossy Kiss Lipstick
Caudalie | SOS Morning Eye Rescue
(MALIN +  GOETZ) | cilantro hair conditioner
Hail Merry | Chocolate Macaroons

I am so happy with this month's box! I am excited to try the (MALIN +  GOETZ) cilantro hair conditioner. Initially, I was wary that it would actually smell like cilantro (which I love as a food ingredient but would not want my hair to smell as such). However, it is very fresh, clean scent. The 1 oz. size makes it perfect to pack for my upcoming trip to Portland. I have also been interested in delving into the eye cream world so this sample of Caudalie SOS Morning Eye Rescue will be a great first introduction to the product. Teeny size but it should be several uses since it's just for the eye area. The Herban Essentials Towelettes are super cute. Another travel-friendly item. I like that they included a couple: peppermint & yoga. The yoga one is lavender, and I love the idea of using it to clean your hands, feet, and yoga mat!

Super excited about the Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick! I have been really wanting to diversify my lip colours, but I find lipstick to be so tricky. I hate having to constantly be concerned about reapplying, feathering, or having lipstick on my teeth. Pencil form definitely makes application easier. The shade I received was 7. Quick Kiss, an amazing red-orange with a super glossy finish. The size is quite misleading (what you see there is what you get, no retraction), but I guess having a longer handle will make it easier to use.

Finally, as a lifestyle extra, I received Chocolate Macaroons by Hail Merry. Gluten-free, vegan, pure ingredients, chocolate, coconut....what's not to love. Super delicious. Additionally, the box came with a bonus offer for a free year of Women's Health magazine. It looks like there are no strings attached, so I will definitely redeem this offer.

So that was my April 2013 Birchbox! I am really excited to try everything. What did you get in your BB?
