What’s in My April Birchbox

I’ve recently made the decision to sign up to Birchbox in April, and subscribe for 12 boxes (one box a month), to get some more beauty inspiration and some exposure to new beauty products. Some of us women do tend to keep products from years ago, thinking “I might use that one day”, then some day comes around and the product has grown a second life form or separated into oils and paste. Having recently moved as well, I got rid of all such old products, meaning my inspiration for buying new products has been wearing thin, as I can barely remember what I owned in the first place.

My first inspiration stops were Vogue and Glamour magazines. Being any girl’s fashion and beauty bibles, these seemed like the best place to go. I soon found myself on the Bobbi Brown website, putting product after product in my basket and nearly having a heart attack when I saw the £300 bill all of this was going to come to. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore Bobbi Brown make-up, it’s so worth the money! But I did feel like I should invest in a more diverse range of products, and what better place to test random products than at Birchbox! My April Birchbox came along in the post a week ago, with the most beautiful packaging:

My Favourite Product in April

My favourite out of all five products in the April box was the Kueshi Foot Care Cream! The product is so soothing and works really well if you have dried skin on the soles of your feet. It has a distinct smell of eucalyptus, but is actually made of tea tree oil, royal jelly and sweet almond oil:

The product packaging recommends using the cream twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening), to ensure your feet are fully taken care of, all day long!

Overall Impressions

So far, I’m super happy with my April Birchbox, and am really looking forward to the up-coming boxes. I love the variety of products, and I love the fact that I get to try five new items every month. I often find it hard to decide what I want to try when I read all of the information I find in magazines like Vogue or Glamour every month. Birchbox just makes trying new things super easy, and if you don’t like what you’ve tried you simply don’t buy it!

As always, thanks for reading Coffee Guaranteed. x
