I finally got a chance to open April’s Natural Wonders-themed Birchbox! This month we’re getting back to nature with products that take inspiration from the world around us.
I’m excited to try the Befine skincare sampler. It includes a gentle cleanser and moisturizer that use rice extracts to revive skin. The box is awesome and looks so yummy, I wasn’t sure if it contained food or beauty products!
Then there’s Revolution Organics Freedom Glow Beauty Balm in Sunkissed–an all-natural pigment for cheeks, lips and lids. It’s free of chemicals, parabens, artificial ingredients and petrochemicals. I’m not even sure what petrochemicals are but I’m glad there are none included in this multi-tasking beauty balm.
Next is Olie Biologique’s 004 Huile Moderne, a lightweight blend of five organic essential oils that can be used on your face, body and hair. I can tell you now that it leaves a nice, subtle sheen on my skin. Hello summertime!
The fragrance sample this month is Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue from Atelier Cologne. I’m not a huge fragrance fan but I do like this scent which is a blend of blood orange, jasmine and sandalwood. They had me with the blood orange, I love blood oranges–especially in a margarita!
And finally, the Lifestyle Extra is green tea from Le Palais des Thes. I’m drinking a lot of coffee these days but when I swing back to tea, I’ll give these a try.
So that’s it for April’s Birch. Have you tried any of these products? Love ’em, hate ’em, let me know!
