#Birchbox April Review : Editor Choice #MadmenNYC

(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

I happy to receive my April Birchbox Madmen New York Edition, which I chose over the Madmen LA Edition!! Although both boxes have great goodies, I gotta represent East Coast ( I am born and raise in Virginia)!! Ok, focus!! And just in time to use for the 6th Annual Second Chance Prom that benefits Lynchburg Project Lifesaver and Commonwealth Autism last weekend!!

I love the Birchbox in their box designs and this one is in my favorite color, PINK!! I think I can upcycle this month's box! Love the how they packaged my goodies as well (see below)!!

Ok, I check my card to see my contents of my Birchbox Madmen NYC which I already knew ahead of time being an Birchbox Ace ahead of regular Birchbox members (love the perks!). Inside my April Birchbox as mention below in the photo:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel (Full-size, $22)
Beauty Protector Protect & Oil (Full-size, $25.95)
Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Blush in Los Cabos (Full-size, $26)
Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion (Full-size, $25)
Whish Crave Shaving Cream in Blueberry (Full-size, $20)

On Friday evening before Second Chance Prom, I shaved using Whish Shaving Cream! I am not a big fan of blueberry scented bath products, Whish left my shaved areas smoothed and conditioned which I am glad because I have dry skin! Plus, Whish has shea butter in its shaving cream!!

After shampoo and conditioning my hair, I used only palm size amount of Beauty Protector Protect & Oil as pre-blow dryer treatment before I begin blow drying my long relax hair!! I was impress with the results of my hair with blow-dry with a straightening attachment!! I used one more drop on my ends before covering my hair in nightcap!! And I got plenty to spare for the evening of Second Chance Prom, too!!

On Saturday evening of Second Chance Prom, I put on my makeup with included using Cargo Blush in Los Cabos (which is a peachy-pink shade)!

 Also, I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Eye Brow gel on my Brows and nothing else on my dark brows which also has conditioning agents and didn't make my eye brows "stiff nor flaky"!! And to enjoy Second Chance Prom!!

Once I got back home after a wonder evening of volunteering at Second Chance Prom, in which my makeup (Cargo and Anastasia) performed very well! I removed, cleansed, used toner, and then used the Liz Earle Eye Lotion on my tired eyes!! WOW, my eyes felt refreshed without any irritation and finished with my night facial cream!!

I personally give all "5 out of 5" for this Birchbox Madmen NYC April box because all 5 items worked effectively and I had zero complaints!! Until next Birchbox review!!

    1. I know but I am Birchbox ACE which allows me to go ahead and reserved my box choice ahead of "regular" subscribers!! The moment that I saw these special Edition boxes I knew I had to get it and pass on the regular April box!!

  2. I was going to pick this box! I was so tempted especially since it has a Anastasia product.

  3. Don't you just heart Birchbox?!? I got a Whish shaving cream one time and I didn't like it. But I love getting some new things to try at a trial without paying full price!

  6. What amazing products you got there! I love the packaging of the box too, it's so fun and very spring. Thanks for sharing. I think I need to re-sub to birchbox again. They've improved so much since I unsubbed from the service.

    1. I had my concerns about the shade ( I would have naturally chosen pink shade) but I love the results without being too orange in color but coral pink shade instead!

    1. People remember stories esp. good stories of how a product(s) help them in particular moment...instead of going to the drugstore or Target spending $25 - 30...BOOM $10 Birchbox for getting ready for Second Chance Prom!!
