2. juice beauty oil-free moisturizer: Juice Beauty is one of the brands that I’ve discovered through Birchbox. I’m a big fan of theirGreen Apple Peel, so I’m hoping this moisturizer will be another great find from this certified organic skincare company.
3. wonderstruck perfume by taylor swift: I’m always a bit wary of perfumes created by celebrities. I just feel like they’re usually overpriced generic-smelling fragrances. I’ve only just begun to try out Wonderstruck, but I’m surprised by how much I like it. The perfume contains notes of freesia, green tea, apple blossom, raspberry, and dewberry.
4. zoya nail polish in lotus true spring collection: I’m not excited about this Zoya polish. Lotus is a dusty grey-lavender with a purple-pink flash of glitter. I love how Zoya polishes apply, so I have high hopes for this shade.
5. dropps laundry detergent I love these little detergent packs- they make washing clothes so easy, BUT I think it’s really odd for them to be in my Birchbox. I’m always happy to get free samples of detergent, but I would’ve much preferred a beauty product sample.
Overall, this wasn’t my favorite Birchbox. I think that the products I received as samples were fine (except for the dropps), but I wish that the sample sizes would’ve been as generous as they were in previous boxes. I’m still happy with Birchbox at the moment because I have over 400 points saved with them, so that means I’m eligible to spend $40 in their store 🙂 What did you get in your April Birchbox?
