Birchbox gets 2nd place this month from my three beauty box subscriptions.

Products in the box:

Kind Healthy Grains, Maple and Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt, Retail Value $11.88 for 15 bars, Sample 1 bar, estimated value $.79

Reading the nutritional information, this is a healthy bar. It is gluten free and non GMO. However, this has too many carbs to be a meal for me since I am diabetic. I could eat it as a meal replacement though with some additional protein. I haven’t tried it yet but it looks to have a grainy, seedy texture.

Supergoop!® Daily Correct CC Cream, Retail Value $32 for 47ml, Sample size 3ml, Estimated sample value $2.04

Supergoop!® Daily Correct CC Cream

This is a really small sample so I’m a little disappointed. The shade did adjust to my skin tone nicely, but I found it to be a bit too think and creamy for my combination/oily skin. This is going in the “take one” basket.

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, Retail Value $24 for 4oz, Sample size 1oz, estimated value $6

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

I have only tried this once so far. It is easy to apply and doesn’t really have a smell. It has a slight burning feeling like enzymes do for a few seconds. Its just very slight though. My skin did look dewy after. Verdict still out on this one. I need to use it more to form more of an opinion.

Color Club Gala’s Gem Collection, Retail value $13 for 4 bottles, sample size 1 bottle, estimated value $3.25

I got the color Breakfast at…

This was a one coat polish. It went on thick, but not too thick. The color is just lovely. For $13 I think I may buy the set.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel, Retail Value $22 for .28oz, Sample size .085fl oz, estimated value $6.68

I already love Anastasia’s brow duo and eyebrow wax, so I’m knew I would love this too. And I do. Her products are amazing.

The Birchbox subscription costs $10 a month. April’s value was $18.76. I love the nail polish and the brow gel.  Everything else was just eh. If you want to give Birchbox a try you can subscribe here.

What did you think of this month’s box?

I’m sad… I haven’t even GOTTEN my April BirchBox yet…. I used to consistently get my BB on between the 7th and the 9th of the month. The past 3 or 4 months it has continued to get later and later…… 🙁 I have gotten the “your birch box has shipped” email. So it SHOULD be here any day!!!

I got my shipped e-mail the same day it arrived so hopefully it will be there soon!
