Birchbox Unveiling (April 2014)

April 2014

April's theme was "Rainy Days," and Birchbox really went with the theme. Between the rain-themed packaging and the rainy-day tip, Birchbox was spot on. But, in all honesty, does one really need to wait for a rainy day to enjoy all of this?

The tulips just scream spring, don't they?

Here are the products I received.

KIND Healthy Grain Bars in Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt: full size costs $11.88; sample value is $0.72

I've never had a KIND bar because most of them have nuts (to which I'm allergic), so I was relieved to see that this is a new nut-free flavor! I'm saving it for when I really need a pick-me-up snack, but I've only heard great things.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eye Pencil in Black: full size costs $16; sample value is $12

I was hoping I'd get a Cynthia Rowley eye pencil in my box, so I was happily surprised to receive this! While silver would have been fun, I'm definitely not complaining about black. Right now, I'm wearing blue eyeliner, but I can't wait to test out this pencil.

Color Club Gala's Gems Collection nail polish in Aquamarine Azulino: full set costs $13; sample value is $3.25

I just painted my nails with this color and love it! The polish is creamy and pearly and only requires one coat. Color Club hasn't failed me yet.

Davines Oi/All in One Milk: full size costs $28; sample value is $10.38

So I already use argan oil in my hair, but roucou oil? I'd never even heard of it until I received this product! It comes from the seeds of the achiote fruit in the Amazon, and supposedly does wonders for your hair. I can't wait to try it and see the shine for myself!

BijaBody Daily Body Serum: full size costs $34; sample value is $0.58

Honestly, I'm not too sure what to do with this serum. I guess put it on my body...? The concept of serums is still new and vague to me, but maybe this will turn me onto them.

Total value: $26.93

Bonus: Birchbox even added this card
with an idea of how to spend a rainy day!

This month's Birchbox was a huge win because of the products and value. A nail polish and an eyeliner? A beauty lover's heaven! I'll use everything in this box, and I'm already looking forward to next month's!
