April 2012 Birchbox

I was sort of anticipating my April Birchbox and sort of not anticipating it.  I had seen a sneak peak of someone else's box online, before mine arrived, and they had received Zoya Bevin.  Normally, getting a mini Zoya would be awesome but I already have Bevin, so I had my fingers crossed that my box would have a different color from the True Collection.  I've seen a couple other people who received Lotus, which I don't have.  Alas, when my box arrived a few weeks ago (I'm a little late with this post), inside was a mini Zoya Bevin.  Oh well, what can you do?  At least it's a color I love and look at how cute the mini bottle looks next to the normal Zoya Bevin bottle!

The April theme is "Natural Wonders" and it is all about products with an earthy feel and natural ingredients. Besides the Zoya mini, I received:
- a sample of Juicy Beauty organic oil-free moisturizer.  It's also supposed to be blemish clearing, which is always a plus.
- a mini bar of Erno Laszlo active pHelityl soap, which is supposed to be moisturizing and help balance your skin's pH levels (and is almost as cute as the mini Zoya bottle).
- Yes To Blueberries brightening facial towelettes, moisturizing and cleansing all in one.  I think I'm most looking forward to trying these.  They're supposed to remove all traces of makeup and have a fruity scent.
- a sample of Yogini by Harvey Prince.  I've worn this scent a few times already and I like it quite a lot.  It definitely fits with the earthy vibe of this month's box.

Not my favorite Birchbox out of all the ones I received so far since starting my subscription last August, but it's got some good items for sure.  I would have been happier if I had received Zoya Lotus, but that's just the luck of the draw.  It's not like Birchbox would have known that I had already bought Bevin on my own.  So, while I'm a little bummed about Bevin, I'm still happy with this month's samples.


  1. Hey, if you don't want it, I'm sure someone else will always be willing to take it off your hands.. *cough* Me! *cough* lol

    How do you like Birchbox in general though? I am thinking about giving it a try.

  2. LOL! I like it, I wouldn't say I love it, but I like it a lot. Once in a while, you might feel disappointed with the samples but overall, I think you end up getting your money's worth. I like how they send you a range of products too, from makeup to moisturizers, perfume, polish, sometimes even snacks or healthy drink mixes.
