For the second year in a row, #Birchbox has partnered once again with Rifle Paper Co. which is one of their patron stationery featured on their website!! I was so excited to received this box since I selected the Au Natual Organic Makeup palette in their #AprilBirchbox preview!! Let's get started with my April box!!

I enjoyed using Acure Organics Pore Minimizing Facial Scrub in the shower for getting rid of dry and dead skin cells using the power of red Moroccan clay which gently made my skin more radiant!! So far this is another Acure Organics product that I enjoyed on my skin!!

I tried the Beaver Shampoo and Conditioners in the shower for my long relaxed hair but I have mixed feelings about the results! Yes, my hair is cleaned and conditioned but I felt that I could received the same or better results from another brand!! I won't be buying them in the near future but at least my hair was clean and conditioned! Below is after I finished blow drying my hair straight!

Love how my hair and skin is feeling after the shower and now for the rest of my samples to complete my day look!!

For my makeup look of the day, I used the selected sample that choice which is by Au Naturale Mini Face Palette in Lively which contains a creamy lipstick, blush, and eye shadow! As you can see in the photo, you can see the lipstick and hint of the blush but barely the neutral color of the eye shadow!! But the colors were great for my skin tone plus they are nourishing so not bad for this organic makeup brand!

Last but certainly not the least, is this lovely perfume sample, Penhaligon's Levantium, which is a floral, woodys scent with notes of absinthe, davana, saffron, rose, jasmine, and ylang ylang! A little bit strong when first sprayed but after of few minutes to adjusting my body temp and chemistry, I am just in love with this luxe UK perfume!! Maybe some can surprise me in the future with a bottle of this wonderful perfume!!

Except for the the Beaver shampoo and conditioner, I love everything else in my April Birchbox including the coupon for Rifle Paper Co. in the future!! Birchbox also did a great selection based on my preferences to for hair, skin, makeup, and perfume especially to do a complete mini-makeover for the day!! I hope you enjoyed your Birchbox for April!!

Until next time..

  2. Those colors are gorgeous on you, but with your skin tone, you could make anything look beautiful! Now I'm curious about the Penhaligon's! :)
