The Beauty Crop Liquid Lipstick in shade "Imma Bawse"
Full Size Price: $15.00
Sample size value is approximately: $12.00
This is a liquid lipstick that has a matte finish. It contains vitamin E and shea butter which claims to provide hours of hydrating wear. I received a true red shade that applied quite easily and did not bleed out around my lips. I found that it set quickly and while it did feel a bit drying, it wasn't uncomfortable and it did not change the overall appearance. I was able to eat and drink and still have my lipstick be in perfect condition. I really love the pigmentation and will be purchasing other shades.


Number 4 Jour d'Automne Smoothing Balm
Full Size Price: $30.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.88
This is a balm that claims to be similar to a hair mask. It is formulated to minimize frizz, give hair a soft texture, and protect against humidity and heat damage.  To use this product, apply a small amount and work through damp hair, style as usual. I found the formula was light and applied evenly into my hair. It did not weigh it down nor make it look greasy. The scent was more on the masculine side, reminded me of a light cologne scent. I did find that it helped control my frizz issues. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer
Full Size Price: $31.00
Sample size value is approximately: $4.22
I have received a sample of this product before, so I was a tad disappointed to receive it so soon again. This is a balm that helps to minimize the appearance of pores. It is an oil free formula that diffuses pores and fine lines to give you an airbrushed finish. You can use it as a primer or as a touch up treatment throughout the day. I enjoy the unique formula and do find that it worked well at making my skin look better with my foundation application. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


thisworks deep sleep pillow spray
Full Size Price: $29.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.90
This is a pillow spray that contains 100% pure essential oils such as lavender, patchouli, and chamomile. These oils are intended to work together to help you fall asleep faster and make you wake up more refreshed. To use this product, spray a fine mist directly on your pillow and take a few deep breaths as you lay on it. The herbal scent is extremely strong with this and that is one thing I didn't like too much. I did find that it helped keep me more relaxed but feel I would need more testing time to fully see how well it works for me. If it works well over time, then I will purchase the full size of this product.


Michael Todd Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner
Full Size Price: $19.00
Sample size value is approximately: $1.18
This is an antibacterial toner which helps to rid skin of oil, sweat, and impurities. It contains lavender and birchwood scent which help to keep the skin moisturized. To use the product, apply the toner to a cotton pad and swipe over skin. Follow up with a serum and moisturizer. This carries a strong herbal and citrus scent, I mostly feel like it smells like lemon. It feels really nice on the skin and I did feel it made my skin feel overall more smooth. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


SHOW Beauty Pure Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner
Full Size Price: $38.00 each
Sample size value is approximately: $0.49 shampoo/ $1.87 conditioner
This is a sample of a set of shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo is made to cleanse all hair types and is sulfate free. It contains shea butter, soy protein, and pro vitamin B5. The conditioner is formulated with the same ingredients as the shampoo and is made to fully moisturize and hydrate your hair. The scent of both products is quite strong and reminds of a floral perfume. The formula applied nicely to my hair and I felt it did a decent job of cleaning and moisturizing. I would consider purchasing the full size of both products.


The value of my April Birchbox is $28.54.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I receive an additional value of $18.54.


Overall, I wasn't too excited by this month's box. I still would like to see more cosmetics based products and less of the hair and skincare. My favorite product from this month's bag is the lipstick.
