Birchbox Haul: April 2012

Birchbox: Natural Wonders
I can't say I'm totally impressed by this month's box. There are definitely a couple gems in the box, but I don't think it's worth the $10 monthly cost. Here's a look into my April Birchbox:

Just the normal looking box.

The inside is bright green, very springy!

Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
The pop-country songstresses' scent is as catchy as her lyrics. We think it is worthy of a standing gig on our vanity.

TRUE Spring Collection by Zoya
Lighten up for spring with this fresh shade. The non-toxic formula goes on opaque and lasts 50% longer than traditional polishes.

Oil-Free Moisturizer by Juice Beauty
Feed your skin with this standout hydrator, which is made with an organic fruit-based formula that won't clog pores.

Obliphica Nourishing Mask by Amika
Rich in rare omega acids and vitamin C, this conditioning mask boosts shine and even helps repair split ends.

Laundry Detergent by Dropps
Lighten your laundry day load with these single-use, eco-friendly detergent packs. We love their convenience factor and adorable design.

Birchbox Haul: Teen Vogue Box

Birchbox :Teen Vogue Beauty Picks
After being continually disappointed by my previous Birchboxes, I have to admit they finally stepped up their game! The Teen Vogue box convinced me to stay subscribed to Birchbox for the time being. I know this box was from two months ago, but I still wanted to share it on my blog. Here's what came in my Teen Vogue Birchbox: 

What the outside of the box looked like.

And the inside of the box. 

Petite Cherie by Annick Goutal
