April Birchbox Review

I'm back with my April Birchbox review! I gave you my initial thoughts about this Birchbox last week and now I will go through and review each item...

The first item is the Beauty Protector

I used this item as a leave in conditioner and I definitely liked it. There wasn't a strong smell to it and it definitely did no damage to my hair. Will I purchase a full size of this item? No, I won't. Mostly because I didn't notice any huge difference. My hair didn't seem any healthier or softer after using this product. I definitely would use it if I was given a free sample again, but I don't need to use it on a daily basis.

Next, The juice beauty CC Cream

This is a tinted moisturizer essentially and it is okay. My skin is a little light for this cream and I don't think that it works particularly well for me. I will be finishing the tube, but it is not something I will purchase a full size of.

The yes to carrots lip butter...

You guys know me- I am obsessed with my Burts Bees. This lip butter tasted good enough, but it was not my Burts Bees...I placed it in my lip drawer with the rest of my lip products but I probably won't finish it...I'm so bad!

This Caudalie eye cream..

was actually a pretty good product! I liked it a lot, it didn't do anything negative to my eyes, that's for sure. It was a thicker cream then I had been using on my under eyes but I definitely liked it. I would consider purchasing this in full size depending on its price.

I did NOT like this yes to grapefruit facial scrub and correcting serum...

First of all, the smell was horrendous (at least to me), I thought it was awful and was not a fan of putting it on my face. I did lightly scrub my face with the daily facial scrub, and carefully rinsed it off. The I gently dabbed on the dark spot correcting serum. I went to bed shortly afterwards and my skin was lightly broken out. Yuck. Never purchasing this item.

Overall, this wasn't a wonderful Birchbox, last months was a million times better. I will continue to subscribe to Birchbox and can't wait to get next months!

Do you subscribe to any monthly beauty boxes? I have heard many things about Ipsy and Glossy Box and have considered subscribing to another box, but I'm not sure it they are worth the money! Let me know!

I will be posting a product empties before the end of the month and you may see a few of these products listed in there as well!
