Birchbox April 2015 Review + $10.00 Coupon
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links
I was excited to check out my April 2015 Birchbox. I had seen some spoilers, but I honestly forgot what was in my box by the time my box arrived. Birchbox is $10.00/month and they send five sample beauty and skin care products, every month. Some subscribers can now upgrade to a $30.00 box. The $30.00 box will contain 2 full size beauty or skin care products, along with the five usual products. This is my April 2015 Birchbox review.
When you sign up, you fill out a profile, so Birchbox can customize your box to your preferences. There is a regular monthly box and they also have guest editor boxes. Birchbox releases spoilers and a full reveal of the guest editor boxes, so you will know which box to choose. I actually have two Birchbox subscriptions. This is the box for my newest account.
Here is the details about the Birchbox Point System

Birchbox shipped in a little green box this month.
Rifle Paper Co and Birchbox teamed up to make the boxes this month. This is a beautiful box, and the floral print is perfect for spring.
The information card gave some details about Rifle Paper Co. The print is an exclusive print for Birchbox.
The information card lists everything in the box, along with how to use the product and the retail value.
Beaver Professional: Hydro Nutritive Moisturing Shampoo: $3.58 This shampoos is designed for damaged hair. It restores moisture and nourishment to strands. I am not crazy about receiving shampoo inbox.
Beaver Professional: Hydro Nutritive Repairing Conditioner: $3.05 This conditioner dry, damaged hair, leaving it silky smooth. While I am not crazy about getting shampoo and conditioner, the samples are a nice size and I am glad I got the shampoo and conditioner together.
Jouer Tiny in Petal: $9.43 I believe this is what I chose in sample chose. This creamy color can be used as a lip stain or a cheek stain. I love the product, but this color is a bit to orange/peach for my skin tone.
Laqa & Co Sheer Lip Lube Pencil $14.00 This lip pencil applies more like a buttery lipstick than a pencil. This goes on super smooth and moisturizing. There is a bit of pink, but it is light in color. This is a great day-to-day product.
The swatch on the left is the Lip Lube (about 4 applications) and the one of the right is the Jouer Tint.
Whish Shave Cream: $2.93 This shaving cream is awesome. I have received this is previous boxes and it works great. It gives your legs a layer of moisture, so you won't nic or cut your legs.
Final Thought: This box had a total value of $32.99. I am really suprised with the high value this month. While I wasn't blow away this month, I love the Laqa and Co Lip Lube and it's $14.00 value, made this box a win. I will be buying more of the Lip Lube in the Birchbox store.
