April Birch Box

  In Bloom

This month's Birchbox arrived just in time to put a smile on my face. I always knew I would find the noise, dirt and general destruction at the start of this building project a little difficult to deal with, so was glad of my little treat this month.

The title of this month's box is 


The only bloom I feel at the moment is BLOOMING FREEZING as we have no gas and hence no heating, but I will give it a go.....

The Contents

  • Gerda Sillmann  Renaisance Age Serum - Antioxidant enriched Serum Full Size would be £69  . OOOO this is lovely! A small sample - but I have a great little collection of small "high end " samples now that I use to give my skin a boost when needed. Absorbs straight away and leaves skin super soft. Yum.

  • La Societe Parisienne De Savons  Soap - A retro looking soap. Full size worth £8.50  Great for a guest basket or bathroom. Smells lovely.

  • Mirenesse  Glossy Kiss - Sheer but buildable lip colour. Full size worth £17.50. My favourite in the months box. It is a lovely coral colour and very pigmented. Lasts well and is great to apply. A winner. ( See additional pictures below)

  • Welda  Skin Food - VB swears by this moisturiser which softens dry heels and elbows with ease ! I can understand why - this is going to be in my cupboard from now on! Full size would be £8.95 Bargain.

  • Natio - Gentle foaming facial cleanser - This omits lathering chemicals that can leave skin feeling taut and dry. Ive not tried it yet, but sounds good. Full size would be £6.50 

  • EXTRA Paname Paris Mirror - a useful mirror for the handbag worth £7.50 ( is a mirror worth £7.50?)- I nearly got myself a little mirror last week - glad I didn't - this is fine!

The Birchbox mag with a handy nail tutorial - perfect.

Mirenesse. Perfect Kiss

My two favourites that I would consider buying from this months box are :

The Mirenesse Perfect Kiss
Weldas Skin food

I am becoming less judgemental about the contents of these boxes each month and just enjoying the treats I get sent. I love trying out products that I haven't seen before and are not readily available on the high street. Since Birch box took over I do feel I get more than value for money each month as well.
