Helloo! Welcome to instalment number 2 of this months “What’s In My” series. This time we are looking at the April Birchbox.
This months box was themed around Gems, Crystals, Sparkles etc, on the leaflet it states “You’re a Gem” and the box was beautiful. What I liked the most about the box itself is that this month they had made it into a keepsake box, with a magnetic closure and a very generous mirror. This is such a bonus because it gives the box a purpose instead of it just beings like “oh this is cute.. byee” you know?
Anyway, the products this month were very varied and from a good mix of brands so that was super nice, and I got a bonus goodie from their “mistake” last month so that was extra nice.
Lets dive in to the products.
This silky smooth, baked powder claims to brighten and highlight in a single sweep, its said to blend seamlessly and have a sheer, light texture.

This silky, oil free primer diffuses pores and fine lines, leaving an airbrushed finish to the skin but also helping makeup to last all day. It goes on sheer and leaves skin instantly even and smooth.
Use – Apply to the skin and blend out, can be used under make up as a primer and on top of makeup as a mid day pick me up to absorb oil.

This blend of real diamond powder, and caffeine will help to brighten, de-puff, and hydrate in the a few minutes.

Bonus Item – If you remember from last months post, Birchbox reached out and apologised because they had sent me a product that they had sent in a previous box, they offered either a £5 voucher or a Kawaii Brush Cleanser.
I went with the cleanser.
This little egg has a textured side that you basically rub your brushes across when your washing them and the texture helps to get all the product out from between the bristles.
So thats everything from this months box. I enjoyed this box, it was cute, the products are nice and I’m looking forward to playing with everything.
Hope you enjoyed this.
Talk to you soon!
