April Birchbox

Good Morning Lovelies!
Motivation Monday has [very temporarily] been replaced by this months 
Birchbox Post 

If you haven't heard of birchbox, it is a $10 monthly subscription for which you receive 4-5 deluxe beauty samples. 

This month's box was a tip of the hat to earth day, which was absolutely lovely!
The box contained: 
[The box comes with a product description card, which says:]
1. Atelier Cologne- Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue
It doesn't get cheerier than this juicy scent, a pure blend of blood orange, jasmine, and sandalwood. 

2. Befine- Skincare Sampler
Revive dull skin with this gentle cleanser and moisturizer duo. Both use rice extracts to restore skin's natural barrier. 

3. Olle Biologique- 004 Huile Moderne
This lightweight blend of five organic essential oils- including argan, rosehip, and bergamot- can be used on face, body, and hair. 

4. Revolution Organics- Freedom Glow Beauty Balm
A real triple threat, this all-natural pigmenet adds a healthy glow to your cheeks, lips, and lids. Use it for a gorgeous, unified look. 

5. Le Palais Des Thes- Tea Bags
Little known fact: the French take teatime just as seriously as their coffee breaks- as evidenced by these sophisticated Parisian green tea blends. 

The Befine box contains a couple [large] single use packets of cleanser and moisturizer, which each contain enough product for more than one use. 

I haven't tried the skincare oil, but was intrigued by the packaging, as it came in a spray bottle. I've used more than my fair share of hair and skin oils, but never one in a spray bottle. The perfume, however, does not have a spray top- which is unfortunate. The scent, though, more than makes up for the packaging. Picture a summer sunrise in a fantastic destination- that is this scent. 

The perfume also came with a post card, which will more than likely end up taped to my mirror, as I instantly fell in love with the print. 
The revolution organic product was also a surprise. I believe this is a full size product, but don't quote me on that. 

I received the color "Blushed". 
I did a quick swatch of the product, but haven't gotten the chance to truly try it out. 

I thought I applied a small amount, but it turned out to be quite a lot. 

This is gently buffed out, but not much.
