April Birchbox

I anxiously await the arrival of each Birchbox!!  I wait for the email and stalk the site and my mailbox until it's arrival. I had already seen some online reviews and a couple of bloggers were disappointed with their selections.  I was not one of the disappointed ones!  I'm very happy with my selections.

I love the idea of natural and organic products.  I don't know that I have every gravitated toward a natural product versus an unnatural product, but I like the idea.  Let's review the items in the box:
Pictured here are one Juice Beauty Oil Free Moisturizer.  The BB card says "Feed your skin with this standout hydrator, which is made with an organic fruit-based formula that won't clog pores.  The card that comes with the sample tube says it is Blemish Clearing.  I plan to give it a try during my next breakout to see if it really is clearing.

The next item is very interesting.  It's a WEI Black Soy instant lifting face treatment pad.  The package says it is skin firming.  I'm looking forward to trying this after the kiddo and the dogs go to bed so that I don't frighten anyone.

I got my first perfume sample.  It's Yogini by Harvey Prince.  I was pleasantly surprised by the scent.  It's fresh and clean but still smells like perfume.  I was expecting a fresh cotton type smell, but was pleasantly surprised.  This sample spray is going in my purse for sure.

I love the Zoya polish sample.  The color is called Bevin and it's a beautiful pale green color from the True Spring Collection.  I just did my nails, but I plan to try this beauty out real soon!

My beauty extra is a MicrodermaMitt face mitt.  The description says "This all-natural silk mitt gently exfoliates away dead skin cells and pore-clogging debris.  I'll be using this one tonight.

Overall, I'm very pleased with my Natural Wonders April Birchbox.  I'm looking forward to trying each of the products and writing reviews on the Birchbox website.

March Favorites.....better late than never!

Late March/early April has been very hectic, so I'll jump right back in.  

I only have two favorites for March.  First, I received in my March Birchbox.  
One Love Organics Skin Savior Waterless Beauty Balm.  I use this balm on my cuticles and elbows and feet.  I love that it is absorbed easily and the citrus scent is a nice treat as well.  The full size jar of this wonder-balm is $65, but I think it would be worth it!  I would love if they would also sell the sample size so that I could keep some in my purse.  Love this product!!  Can be purchased at

My other March love:
Korres Pomegranate Grenade make up removing wipes.  I have expressed my love for my Clarisonic Mia order to keep the bristles on my Mia from getting dingy and gross, I take my make up off first with these miracle wipes!  Even though I am oily, these wipes are not too drying on my skin.  I take off the bulk of my eye make up and then wipe off my foundation, blush, and the rest of my eye make up with these wipes and they do no burn my eyes either.  Love them.  These can be purchased at Ulta.

I should get my April Birchbox next week, so maybe I'll have a new favorite in there!

Much Love,
