April 2016 Curated Birchbox Review

I have been a loyal birchbox subscriber for 3 years now, and I can never get enough of their boxes, especially ones designed by Rifle Paper Co.! This is a review of the curated box this month, sometimes you can find these boxes for sale in the Birchbox shop.

The packaging is just pure perfection; I could stare at it all day.

Every subscriber is getting a 20% off code for Rifle Paper Co. This is lovely, because I can never have enough of her notebooks! 

These are the five products we got this month.

Laura Geller Baked-n-Brighten in the shade Pink Grapefruit .04 oz retail value $6.36 This blush is very pigmented and will last a long time! It's a soft (literally it's very soft), shimmery blush.

Here's the blush swatched. I think it will look pretty on the cheeks! (If you go a little less heavy handed than I did here.)

Dr. Jart+ Liftra Contour Cream .17 oz retail value $6 This is a collagen producing skin care cream, at first I thought it was a contour cream, but I was wrong!

Tocca Crema de Mano in Giulietta 1 oz retail value $5 This hand cream is one of the reasons I chose this box, I love Tocca products, but this one smells a little old lady to me. I'll still wear it, but I was hoping for a different scent.

Parlor by Jeff Chastain Volumizing Lifting Spray $4.90 Boxes have been saturated by Parlor products recently. I'm still interested in giving this a try though.

Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution 1.7 oz retail value $3.57 A Micellar water or solution is a makeup remover, soother and cleanser all in one. This will be my first experience with a Micellar product; they have been all the rage recently. Side note: it is almost impossible to read anything on this bottle!

Verdict: I calculated a retail value of $25.83 for this box. That's a great deal, considering I paid half-price for this box and will get $5 in points! In addition the 20% off coupon will be put to great use. This box was a definite win for me.
