April Birchbox and Review

In April I was excited to find a few amazing products in my Birchbox! I have had the chance to try all of them and am finally ready to share my thoughts with you! (I think my May box will be here by the end of the week...so I'm ready for some new products!)

I have recently just finished up my shampoo and conditioner stockpile so I was excited to receive these little samples of Beaver Professional Shampoo and Conditioner. I really enjoyed these products, they made my hair soft and silky and didn't dry out my hair which is always appreciated. Although I found them to be great additions to my hair care routine I don't believe I would purchase them in the future simply because I know there are great drugstore shampoo and conditioners that are much cheaper (and I can often find for free). I don't want to spend money on something such as shampoo and conditioner if it's not entirely necessary, so since these have been finished up it's time to say goodbye!

Peace Be Still by Templespa is a calming face and body balm. This lotion was slightly scented with a light, minty scent and did not do any damage to my skin. I actually felt comfortable using this on my face and have done so several times. I didn't find it to perform miracles on my skin, but it didn't do any harm either. This is something that I will finish up, but I will not be purchasing in the future. Again, I don't like to spend money on products unless they are something incredible  which I am still on the lookout for.

When I first opened my box I thought "Oh awesome a nail polish!"
I've learned that I'm not great at reading the card that comes inside my Birchbox because this Jelly Pong Pong Glow Glitter is a luminizer! When I pulled out the brush I was shocked to discover this was not nail polish. I am not a huge luminizer person, I would have much preferred a nail polish. This is not something I would wear every day, and I'm not sure I would wear it even on a special occasion because I feel a bit silly even trying it on in the first place. We will see!

I love a good eye cream and I love Supergoop! After trying their sunscreen last year I have been a huge fan and this eye cream is no exception. The consistency is similar to that of a sunscreen but it makes me feel that the area around my eyes is super protected which is great since that area is so sensitive. As the weather gets hot and I spend more and more time outside I need to remember to religiously apply sunscreen before leaving the house in the morning. I am not the type of girl who doesn't have to wear sunscreen, my pasty white skin gives me no choice! (Well the choice is pasty white with sunscreen or burning red and in pain...) So I will use up this whole sample and may perhaps purchase this in the future!

What did you get in your last Birchbox? If you don't receive Birchbox, what beauty products have you tried lately?
