Forget about those April showers (and thunderstorms and hailstones if your weather is anything like ours eeek!) and skip straight into spring with this blooming marvelous Birchbox collaboration with American cult stationery and lifestyle brand, Rifle Paper Co.
Birchbox subscribers will be invited to choose their box design, one of two Rifle Paper Co spring prints, Herb Garden (which is what I was sent) or Jardin de Paris. The April box will include products from brands including Benefit Cosmetics, Cynthia Rowley, Kueshi, Balance Me and Parlor.
A special Birchbox Plus offer will also be available – subscribers can upgrade their box to include a beautiful pocket notebook duo for a very special price of just £4 (RRP £8) And just in time for National Stationery Week, a handpicked edit of Rifle Paper Co’s collection will be available to purchase as a UK exclusive from the Birchbox shop. The collections will include iPhone cases, notepads, weekly deskpads and notebooks.
So here is what was inside my blooming marvelous box this month. First of all we have the Benefit Cosmetics Dew The Hoola. This bestselling Hoola bronzer now comes in a new liquid formula which melts into your skin creating a naturally sun kissed glow. Next we have the Parlor Detangling Leave-in Conditioner with a blend of sweet almond extract and vitamin B5 to deliver soft, sleek, shine to troubled tresses with the added benefit of heat protection. It also smells amazing I love this stuff! Then we have the Kueshi Foot Care Cream. Enriched with sweet almond oil and royal jelly to smooth and soften as well as tea tree oil to calm and relieve, it sinks in quickly for instantly happy feet.
Next is the Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner in black which is a Birchbox exclusive. This creamy pencil has a velvety smooth finish and its smudge proof formula gives long lasting results. And last but by no means least we have the Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream. The dual purpose formula brightens and conceals dark circles but works beneath the surface too hydrating, plumping, firming and battling signs of aging. Now this is a brand that I love but a product that I have never tried before which is one of the (many) things I love about my Birchbox subscription! Oh, and there is also a voucher in months Birchbox for 25% off all products plus shipping on riflepaperco.com which is a nice little bonus.
Birchbox costs just £10 + £2.95 P&P for a monthly subscription and all products are available (to subscribers and new customers) in full size in the Birchbox shop. I love Birchbox day – it is such a lovely treat every month and I honestly can’t recommend it enough. I have to say that this month is a particularly good month (even the box itself is absolutely gorgeous!) so if you haven’t signed up already, then it would be a great month to start!
Disclaimer: I was very kindly sent a press sample of this month’s Birchbox for the purpose of this review but I would only ever recommend a product or service that I truly love… and I really do love Birchbox!
