My April Birchbox

Hey guys! I am sharing my April Birchbox! I have explained what type of service birchbox is in my last birchbox post which I will link here.

Picture from

Kahina™ Giving Beauty Argan Oil- Full Size $36
Kahina™ Giving Beauty Facial Lotion  - Full Size $62
Yes To™ Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes- Full Size $7.99
Wonderstruck Taylor Swift 3.4 oz- Full Size $59.50
Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Mineral Tinted Moisturizer- Full Size $34
BENTA BERRY G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser - Full size $16

I used both of the Kahina products at the same time and they made my skin feel wonderful. My skin was very smooth. I wish I had more product than I received in the the little packages. The Yes To Blueberries towelettes were awesome and were personally one of my favorite products in the box and they were considered my little extra! The Wonderstruck Taylor Swift perfume smelled pretty good. I'm not a huge fan I like the Juicy perfume that I got a few boxes ago better. I was surprised thought because I tend to stay away from "celebrity" fragrances and I liked it more than I thought I would. The Benta Berry G-1 exfoliating facial cleanser was interesting and it was different because it has ground apricot seeds. It reminded me alot of the Pangea Organics facial scrub. I did not see big difference in my skin but I am also trying a lot of Lush products right now. Finally the Pur Minerals tinted moisturizer. I LOVED this product! When I tried it out the texture is so smooth that I could barely tell I was wearing anything. Also the coverage was pretty good for a tinted moisturizer. I think that this is the Pur Minerals answer to a bb cream. This is what is said about the tinted moisturizer on the Birchbox web site,
"Pür Minerals’s brand new mineral-based tint, which works simultaneously as a moisturizer, primer, sheer foundation, and SPF 20. The creamy formula smooths over all kinds of flaws—from stubborn lines to blotchy redness—with color-corrective pigments. At the same time, it plumps up skin with proven moisturizers and offers broad spectrum sun protection. The lightweight texture makes us forget we’re wearing any makeup at all."

Overall this was a great box and I thought it was good for the $10 that I spent on it. I am really excited about the next birchbox that is a Gossip Girl themed box.
