April Birchbox.

Hooray, hooray- it's my favorite time of the month again- Birchbox time!

Last month's Birchbox was absolutely spectacular, so I kind of expected this month's box to be a little more normal. I realize that it's rare to love everything in my box, so a box of some great things and some ok things was anticipated. And that's pretty much what I got. Great and so-so. Here's a look!

Atelier Orange Sanguine Perfume- Smells nice and orangey, but it's not really my favorite. I can see myself wearing this scent every once in awhile during spring or summer. 
Yes To Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes- LOVE THESE! Smell is wonderful, and they do a great job. I love cleansing towelettes, as sometimes washing my face is more work than I'm willing to put forth, but these are a perfect remedy. I think I'll end up buying a full-size pack. 
Marula- The Leakey Collections Omega Rich Pure Marula Oil- Whoops, haven't tried this one yet. It's supposed to be an anti-aging face oil... we'll see how well it works. 
Weleda Pomegranate Firming Night Cream- Not too shabby. Thick without feeling greasy, nice smell. 
Zoya TRUE Spring Collection Nail Polish- Oy. The color is called "Farah," but it should really be called "Corpse." It's one of those nude polishes that does not work for my skin tone. 
Let's all say VOM- both for the color as well as the state of my cuticles. 

What I must say about Zoya polish is this- it stays on! Even though I've hated this color since minute 1, I still find it on my fingers 5 days later, free of any and all chippage. This stuff doesn't budge. 

Terrible polish colors or not, I love Birchbox and cannot wait for next month's box to arrive!
And again, if any of you want to sign up for Birchbox, email me at and I'll send you an invite.
