My Beauty Subscriptions - April

It's time again for my beauty boxes/bags!  I love getting these in the mail each month, its one of the best mail days:)  I am fortunate that I do not have too many problems with my skin so that I am able to try different types of makeup and skincare without too many problems.

I subscribe to Ipsy and Birchbox which are each $10.00 a month.  You can cancel anytime but you can't return or skip a box.  However, I always feel like I get my money's worth each month even if I'm not always a huge fan of every product.


This is my Birchbox for the month of April.  I received:

KIND snacks healthy grains bar in Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt - Oh my goodness was this delicious!  I opened my bag after work and was definitely in need of snack so I ate this right away.  I would definitely search this out at a store.

Color Club Nailpolish in Gold Struck - I like this metallic color and I usually like metallic polishes because they hold up on my nails a little longer.  I'm excited to try this one out.  

Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser - I have not tried this out because in my opinion its more like a mask.  I was going to cleanse with it one evening and once I read the directions it said to leave on 5-10 minutes before rinsing off.  So, I need to plan ahead and use it when I have time to let it sit a bit.

Davines Oi All in One Milk - This is a leave in spray, heat protector, shine spray, etc.  It smells so good!!!!!  I have been using it and like it better than the Healthy Sexy Hair one I used up.  It doesn't make my hair feel greasy or looked heavy like some do.  

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Black Eyeliner - I have used this quite a few times already and love it!  It glides on really smoothly and stays put all day.


Ipsy bag for April was better for me than last month.  Although the bag wasn't my favorite and it had a weird plastic smell but the products were pretty good.  I received:

Coastal Scents brush - I've been using this as a shader brush or for my lid color.  I really like it.

Urban Decay Eyeliner in Black Velvet - This is also a great black eyeliner.  I have been using this and the Cynthia Rowley from my Birchbox almost every day.  I'd been wanting to try Urban Decay eyeliners so I was super excited about this one.

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion - I use these every few days and have tried many different kinds.  My favorite so far has been the Vasanti from Birchbox so we will see how this one compares.  

Elizabeth Mott Pop Goes the Shadow - This is very creamy and I got a great champagne color that I can wear often.  I've used this quite a bit already and really like it.

Starlooks Lip Liner - This is a peach color that I'm not a huge fan of.  I've tried it with some gloss over it and different ways and its just not my color.  It glides on really nicely though and is super creamy so maybe if I had a different color I'd like it more.

So there you have it for this month!  Sorry this is up late, working on finishing up a big project for my master's degree.
