April 2012 Birchbox - One Year Anniversary

I have officially been a part of Birchbox for a year!  They sent me a special pink colored box and a little extra treat inside my box to celebrate.  I have to say, this was a great Birchbox.  If you don't know what Birchbox is, please check out this post to get more information on it.

Here's what I got this month:

Birchbox's focus this month was "Natural Wonders."  They chose products that were natural and didn't have a bunch of weird chemicals and additives in them.
These laundry detergent pacs by Dropps was the 'lifestyle extra' this month.  I'm interested to see how well these work.  I hope they smell amazing.

I got a tube of Herbal Recovery Night Cream by "Jurlique".  I'm excited to try this, but I do not like the packaging.  It is in a metal tube much like those cheap nasty toothpastes that are handed out on airplanes.  I hope this tube doesn't bend and break easily.

This product I'm not sure how I feel about.  I already have a cuticle treatment that I really like, but I'm willing to give this one a try.  I just really dislike the smell of lavender.  A LOT. 

I'm pretty sure everyone got this perfume sample in their Birchbox this month.  I haven't smelled it yet, but I've heard awesome things about this perfume.  I wish the manufactures would make perfume sample bottles with the spray tops instead of the little lids where you have to dab on the perfume.  I found my new favorite perfume through Birchbox (Viva La Juicy) and purchased the full size off their website.  Maybe this will be a new favorite too!

This product is FULL SIZE!  It's interesting to say the least.  It is a beauty balm by Revolution Organics which you can use on your lips, cheek, and face.  I'm not sure I would take this particular color and rub it all over my face, but it would make a good cheek and/or lip color.  This is actually a HUGE stick.  Look at the collective picture above to get a better idea of its size compared to the other products.  Below are some pictures of the produce swatched.
It is very creamy and there were some chunks that came off at first, but it blended out nicely.
This product I am most thrilled about.  It is a scrub by June Jacobs.  Specifically it is the "Perfect Pumpkin Enzyme Polish".  Why am I most excited for this one?  PUMPKIN!  I love love love pumpkin.  It smells delicious. 

This was my anniversary gift from the Birchbox team!  They are cute little Post-It notes that say "Thanks for sticking with us".  Needless to say, I don't regret this purchase at all and have renewed my subscription for yet another year.  It's been neat to see how Birchbox has evolved throughout the last year.  They even have Birchbox Man now!  Check out their website for more information.  If you are interested and want to subscribe, please use my referral link here:
