April 2014 Birchbox Review


My April 2014 Birchbox arrived today – here’s what was inside:

THE BOX:

(I got box #48 – how do you tell?  Log in to birchbox and scroll down to the box history, click the link and the last one or two digits (https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/april-2014/april-2014-bb48) are the box number – you can see all of the other boxes by changing this number!)

or $9.17/Month with annual subscription ($110 – one month free!)

THE GOODS:

BBApr14 006

Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner in Jamun (Deep Purple) – 0.024 oz – $4.40

Not a purple person (this is the SECOND purple eyeliner I got this month – what the heck?!) so will be adding this liner to the trade pile.

Color Club Nailpolish in Breakfast at… – 7 ml – $3.25

Oohh!  LOVE this color!!  HUGE win in my book!

Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Wash – 1.35 fl oz – $2.53

Birchbox seems to really like this brand (got a lotion last month).  Fortunately, I liked the scent of this body wash better then the lotion – although both are very mildly scented (my guess is to appeal to the masses!)

BBApr14 009

KIND Snacks – Maple Pumpkin Seed Bar – 1 bar – $0.79

Maple Pumpkin what?!  haha.. quite the interesting flavor.  To be honest, it doesn’t sound that appetizing, but eventually I’ll try it!

Miss Jessie’s Transitioner’s Magic – 1 fl oz – $2.75

Alright, still not sure what “transitioner’s magic” is – but it says to apply to damp hair and style as usual?  LOL guess I’ll give it a shot, not sure what it’ll do!  ha!

THE VERDICT:

I estimate the value of my April 2014 Birchbox at approximately $13…  I think this is one of the lowest value Birchbox’s yet?  Thankfully, I’m usually pretty impressed with my boxes, so not tempted to cancel this one at this time!  Hopefully next month’s will be amazing 🙂

What did you get in your April 2014 Birchbox?
