Birchbox – April

on April 22, 2013

Yay!  My April Birchbox is here!
I was able to get a sneak peek when I was in my account so I have been pretty jazzed to get this.
This month Birchbox teamed up with Women’s Health Magazine for their picks for this month’s samples.

April’s Theme: Tiny Tweaks, Big Results


Let’s dig in!!


Weleda Replenishing Body Lotion
Pomegranate – Sea Buckthorn – Wild Rose
Foil Packs – 0.13 fl oz each
Retail $16.50 for 6.8 oz – Sample Value For All $0.99

Grrrr… Foil packs.  Nothing very deluxe about them.
That said it did give me the chance to sample the scents.
Wild Rose is very old lady sachet smelling – not my cup of tea.  The other two are nice.
Wonderful formula that really helped my dry hands!  I have been playing in the dirt a lot this week!


Youngblood Anti-Shine Mattifier
0.05 oz
Retail for $36 for 0.25 oz – Sample Value $7.20

Haven’t tried this yet.  My Juice BB cream has been doing such a great job I don’t get shiny.
Will give this a go when I am out of my BB cream sample.


Nexxus Youth Renewal
4 ml
Retail $20.99 for 28 ml – Sample Value $3.00

The first time I tried this the skin on my hands absorbed it immediately.
Then I mixed it with my hair gel.
Works well – smells like the Piña Coladas at Turtle Bay in the North Shore.
Very nice!!


Skin & Co Sicilian Body Gel
2 fl oz
Retail for $17.50 for 8.45 oz – Sample Value $2.80

I’ll be honest – I was so excited to get this.  Man, am I glad I got a sample before I bought it!
It is so over the top perfumey smelling.  Even my wash cloth reeked.
I tried to give this away – no one wanted it.
This is why I love Birchbox – I avoid spending money on full size mistakes 🙂


StriVectin-SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles
0.25 fl oz
Retail $65.00 for 1 oz – Sample Value $16.25

I have been dying to try this – and bonus this sample is huge!
It takes very little for me to use it so it should last me the full 8 weeks.
So far I like it.


Women’s Health Magazine Subscription
One Year Subscription – 10 issues
Retail $49.90 – Sample Value $9.99

I almost threw this card away!  Thought is was an ad like you get in your magazines.
But instead it is a free subscription.  I used to get this magazine – but we cut back to save money.
This was a very happy find!

Total Value of my April Birchbox – $40.23

I have to say I really enjoy the boxes Birchbox does with others and hope they do this more often.
They should get together with Oprah – can you just imagine how over the top that box would be??

  1. Oh looks like you got a great box this month! I’m kinda jealous of the eye cream and it looks like we got the same Nexus hair serum. I actually just reviewed my Birchbox, I’d love it if you’d go check it out!

    We received the same box this month! I really like the eye cream :).
