April’s Birchbox

Having loved my March Birchbox, I was really excited to receive my April box. As before, it turned up on my doorstep in the most beautiful packaging, this time featuring a collaboration with Rifle Paper Co. – a US stationary and lifestyle brand.

This gorgeous, ‘Blooming Marvellous’ floral box was home to all kinds of goodies, in its usual little tote bag ­ if anyone has any cool uses for these let me know in the comments, they’re too nice to throw away!

Nuxe Multi­-Purpose Dry Oil for Face, Body and Hair

When I first pulled this out of the box I actually thought this was a perfume. Paired with the pretty glass bottle and luxurious scent, I don’t think I’m the first to make this mistake.

Thankfully I really enjoy scented products, so when I realised this was a dry oil I was just as excited. It’s gorgeous in texture, and works beautifully on both the skin and in hair. I think I prefer it in the hair, as it acts as a beautiful hair perfume as well as a hair oil.

Kueshi Foot Care Cream

As foot creams go, this is pretty good! I’m not a massive fan of tea-tree scents, but this is definitely bearable, as it makes my feet feel super soft.

Definitely a good one to use before bed – your feet will feel brand new by morning.april birchbox


Benefit ‘Dew The Hoola’ Liquid Bronzer

This is such a fun little product. I definitely prefer liquid bronzers to powder bronzers, as I feel I have far more control over how much I apply.

I have never tried Hoola in its original form, however I really love the liquid version. It’s not too dark or too orange, and acts as a really nice contour colour. I love pairing this with the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Nude Mauve for a beautiful sculpted effect.

Parlor Touchable Curl Cream

This is one I need to give a proper go – I’ve been wearing my hair fairly straight lately, but next time I let it go wild, I’ll give this a try.april birchbox

LOC One and Done Shadow Stick in ‘Impress Me’

I was really chuffed to receive one of these eye shadow crayons, as I’ve heard a lot about the range on Tati’s Youtube channel. I’m a big fan of Tati’s videos and honest approach to reviewing makeup, so was excited to try some of the products from her makeup range.

This is a gorgeous taupe/purple/brown colour, perfect for an everyday wash of colour, as well as a smokey eye. The staying power of this product is excellent, plus it works wonderfully under other shadows.

What did you receive in your April Birchbox? I’d love to know!
