Birchbox April 2018 {Reboot Your Routine}

9:00 AM

DERMA E Hydrating Night Cream with Hyaluronic Acid
Full Size Price: $29.50
Sample size value is approximately: $7.37
This is a hydrating night cream that is packed with antioxidants  and hyaluronic acid. It claims to nourish and hydrate your skin while you sleep. To use, you simply apply a thin layer to your face and neck. The formula is not too thick or greasy, it has a slight scent to it that almost has a hint of floral notes to it. I found it to be quite moisturizing and it did not irritate my skin at all. I would purchase the full size version of this product.

TOCCA Florence Eau de Parfum
Full Size Price: $46.00
Sample size value is approximately: $3.45
This is a Parisian inspired perfume that contains a mixture of grapefruit, bergarnot, jasmine, blue iris, blonde wood, and white musk. This is a very floral fragrance that seems to fit well for the spring and summer season. The perfume is a rich formula that is highly concentrated and does linger on the skin for quite awhile after applying. I am not a big fan of floral scents so I won't be purchasing the full size of this perfume.

COOLA Classic SPF 30 Dawn Patrol Makeup Primer
Full Size Price: $42.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.00
This is a makeup primer and sunscreen hybrid that claims to prep your skin for makeup application and protect from harmful UV rays. To use, simply apply 15 minutes before sun exposure and either layer with your foundation as usual or apply on it's own. The formula is more like a gel and does feel a tad greasy when applied on the skin, it has a very slight citrus note to it and does feel smooth on the skin. I didn't care for the way the formula felt for applying my foundation on top but didn't mind using it on it's own. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Wander Beauty Catch the Light Highlighter & Glowtion
Full Size Price: $34.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.66
This is a hydrating liquid infused with micro-fine pearls to give your skin a golden glow. You can wear this under makeup, alone, or mix with your choice foundation. The formula is quite pigmented and shimmery, so a little goes a long way. I found that it worked well as a highlighter but since it is a liquid, it can be a bit difficult to fully blend in. It does carry a light floral scent. I enjoy the idea of this product but don't see myself using it often enough to purchase the full size.

Smashbox Cosmetics Always On Gel Eye Liner in the shade "Fishnet"
Full Size Price: $18.00
Sample size value is approximately: $9.00
This is a black gel eye liner that claims to glide on along your lash line with saturated color that stays on all day long. You can apply using short, gentle strokes for precise definition or smudge for a smoky look. I typically only wear eyeliner on my water line and found this pencil to be highly pigmented and extremely easy to apply. It did last quite awhile and overall was easy to use and gave me the bold look I desire. I really enjoy this product and would purchase the full size.

My April Birchbox is valued at $32.48.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription so I received an additional value of $22.48.

Overall, I felt pretty mixed about this month's box. While it had a few products I enjoyed, it just seemed fairly boring and nothing really grabbed my attention or made me excited to see. I really feel like Birchbox has been off their game for awhile now and I hate feeling like I am constantly questioning whether it is worth keeping my subscription. If the boxes continue like this, then I see myself canceling by the end of the year. My favorite product from this month's box was the eyeliner.
