Spoiler Alert- April Birchbox Review

Oh looky, looky! A Birchbox that isn't half bad. I know the past few months I have been bitching out Birchbox for the crappy boxes they were sending me. They must be reading my blog because this months box was much nicer than they have been in the past.

In this month's box I received:
  • Fekkai Technician Color Care Shampoo   (full size $20)
  • Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Face Polish, Body Scrub and Hydrating Face Oil with Kola Nut  (full size $34-$55)
  • Sumita Color Intense Pencil in Suman Black  (full size $11)
  • theBalm cosmetics How Bout Them Apples? Cheek and Lip Cream   (full size $32)
  • KIND Snacks Healthy Grains Bar in Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt (15 count $11.88)

So first up, the Fekkai shampoo. Birchbox is OBSESSED with sending me shampoos and conditioners. I receive a shampoo product if not every month, then every other month. I have not tried this one yet and I still have prior samples that I have not tried. They are great for travel. I'll need to travel more so I can get around to trying them out.

Nyakio skin care products. I was very excited about this product until I read the ingredients list. People stop putting potential irritants into skin care. It's annoying and I am baffled by this. I am undecided if I am going to take the plunge and try it out. I will definitely try the body polish, I am unsure of the face products.

Sumita pencil. This pencil is super duper soft and glides on like a dream. It's seriously as soft as a baby's breath. It's so soft I am afraid of pushing too hard on it for fear of squashing it. It is quite black and nicely blend-able.

theBalm cheek and lip cream. theBalm is a company that gained some recognition around the same time I started Little Goddess Cosmetics. I had watched a news clip about them and I was soooo jealous. They seemed to have created what I had envisioned in my head when I started my line. They have adorable, cheeky packaging and I can't be mad at anyone who is going to put a chiseled, shirtless cowboy on their products. I generally do not like lip/cheek combo products. I always feel the texture is off for one of them. In this case, I will most likely use this as a cheek color than on my lips. The color looks really saturated in the sample but sheers out to a really flattering blush.

Oh hello there sexy cowboy
Lastly, Kind health bar. I ate it and it was yum. So there ya go! This box gets a 7 out of 10.
