‘Blooming Marvellous’ – this is the title for the lovely, Spring inspired, April Birchbox collaboration with Rifle Paper Co. I absolutely loved the design of my box this month, which was even better because you were given the choice between two! I picked the more tropical colour palette rather than the pink once simply because I thought it was so cute! Even the information booklet inside had a beautiful floral design to match the 25% off voucher that Rifle Paper Co. provided.
Parlour by Jeff Chasten Detangling Leave-In Conditioner, RRP £17
So obviously this is a sample size and the RRP is for the full size product, as with the rest of the products mentioned! I personally think this is generous for a sample size and I’m really pleased with it. I previously received a Parlor shampoo and conditioner in my January Birchbox and really liked them so I was happy to see this in my box! It does what it says it does and I really love the smell. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone who likes this sort of spray for their hair!
Kueshi Foot Care Cream, RRP £12
Again, a very generously sized sample product that I’m really pleased with! It’s the perfect product for this time of year as the sandals are starting to come out. I love Tea Tree Oil so the smell of this product is fab for me. After just one use I noticed a difference thanks to this product as it really softened the skin on my feet! I’ve just been using this at night if I feel like my feet are getting particularly dry, and the next day they’re soft again.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, RRP from £17
Yet another great sized sample! I feel like Birchbox were extra nice with their sample sizes this month. This product is described as being hair, face and body oil – however, I have only used it for my hair! I love using oil to treat the ends of my hair and this product is lovely! Keeps my hair soft and smelling really nice. The formula for this oil isn’t just your average oil! For once, I didn’t have oily residue on my hands after applying it to my hair. This makes me think that it might not be so greasy if I did use it for my face.. So I might use it for my drier areas and eyes and let you know what it’s like!
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner in Black, RRP £11
I’m pretty sure that this is a full size product because its the same as any other eyeliners I’ve tried! It is amazing! It has a crayon like texture which gives it such a smooth and easy application. It also comes out pitch black rather than more charcoal like some black liners that you have to build up. Although, it is easily smudged if you want it to be so you have the best of both worlds. It did sort of smudge throughout the day, but what eyeliner doesn’t?
Benefit Cosmetics Dew The Hoola, RRP £22.50
I was so excited about this product being in this month’s box! had been looking at buying the full sized product until I saw this could possibly be in my Birchbox. I’m glad I managed to get a sample size before actually making the purchase because I personally feel like I would have been wasting £22.50. I normally love Benefit, but this product just isn’t for me.. I don’t know if it’s because I’m not used to liquid bronzer and need to practice, but I just didn’t feel like this looked good on me. I will definitely be sticking tho the Hoola powder bronzer instead!
Rifle Paper Co. Notepads
So, not everyone received these in their Birchbox as they were optional for an additional fee. Now anyone who reads my blogs knows that I love stationery, so this was a no-brainer. Of course I bought them. They are two, beautifully designed, A6 notepads that I can add to my collection! And no doubt I will buy more from Rifle Paper Co. in the future!
Thanks for reading, I do really appreciate it! Let me know if you’re subscribed to Birchbox, or any other beauty boxes, and what you received this month or would’ve liked to receive!
