Happy Tuesday everyone! April’s Birchbox is in and I have to say that this month’s box design is gorgeous. Very spring and elegant. 🙂

amika Silken Up Dry Conditioner
This dry conditioner detangles and softens strands to “make them manageable and lustrous.” I was very happy to see that my box included an amika product. This product smells so good. Hard to describe but it says Sea Buckthorn Berry so I’m guessing it smells like that. When I use it on straight hair it tames the frizz a bit but I didn’t notice any added shine. On curly hair, it didn’t make much of a difference except make my hair smell nice.
Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask
An ultrahydrating mask with avocado, sweet almond and argan oils to condition and strengthen hair. It also has a blend of vitamins B5, D, A, E and biotin to repair damaged hair. This was the sample I choose for this month’s box since I am looking for a good deep conditioner now that my hair is lighter. I’ve only used this once but I was very impressed with how smooth and soft my hair felt. If this works out, I wouldn’t mind purchasing the full-size.
rms beauty The Ultimate Makeup Remover Wipes
These makeup remover wipes are made with, “pure, naturally antibacterial coconut oil, which melts away even the most stubborn makeup.” The coconut scent on these is very prevalent and reminds me a a coconut popsicle. Unfortunately, the scent is the only thing I liked about these. The wipes felt a little dry and hardly removed my mascara. Since they were a bit dry, they felt abrasive and rough. I’ve heard great things about rms beauty but this just didn’t work for me.
The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick- Guava Nice Day
A lip crayon offers a tint of color that “features hydrating, good-for-you ingredients,” like sweet almond oil. Another great smelling product that features a nice spring summer lip color. The lasting power on this is decent though I like to put on a little bit of lip balm underneath so that it applies smoothly; otherwise, it will cling to dry patches.

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream- Lavender
A shea butter, green tea, coconut oil and jojoba seed oil shaving cream that is infused with a lavender scent. The lavender scent on this is not really my favorite as it smells kind of artificial. It spreads evenly though, has a smoother glide due to the oils and does leave skin a bit hydrated, which is great for summer time.
Overall, I was happy with this month’s box. They also included a discount coupon for Rifle Paper Co and I’ll definitely be checking that out as the designs are pretty.
