April Birchbox!

A major upswing in my day yesterday was coming home to discover that fabulous pink box came in the mail. Hello April Birchbox...which after 2 months, is still like having a birthday every month. In fact, I was so excited when I discovered that it was here that my husband went to bed and I opened it by the light of his headlamp. Oh yes, I was that excited. I carefully repackaged it so I could take pictures and share it with you when the light of day finally broke. So, here it is!
This is how the box looks when you open it and pull back the first layer of tissue paper.
The pretty wrapping is half the fun! 
The "lifestyle extra" of the month was two tea bags written in French so I have no idea what they are except that I know they are green tea. I bet Chad will help me enjoy these soon!
The company is called Le Palais de Thes.

The two larger items of the month were these two...Befine brand skincare sampler...there are 2 samples of the fash wash and 3 of the moisturizer. And they are larger samples too - enough to decide if you like it enough to buy it! I'll talk about the other in a second...
Sorry this picturei s a little blurry - I must have been super excited. 
It is a perfume sample -with a super pretty postcard - from Atelier Cologne. The scent is Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue. It is really citrusy smelling and I like it a lot! Again, the packaging is making all the difference!
The other item - on the bottom - is Olle Biologique. An essential oil that you can use as a moisturizer on your face, body, and hair and it is in a litle spray bottle. Pretty excited to try this one.

This is Revolution Organics - Freedom Glow Beauty Balm. If I am not mistaken, this is a full size product that retails for $36. If you are keeping score, the monthly Birchbox is $10 so right here alone, I basically made $26! It is a pretty pink cream stick that can be used on cheeks, lips, and eye lids. I am pretty excited about using this all the time! The color is a perfect rosy blush - used it today! - but haven't tried it other places on my face yet!

So, there you go! April Birchbox goodness. Pretty exciting! And still really thankful to a fabulously cool sister who blessed me with my subscription!
