Aprils Birchbox Review

I'm really loving receiving a little box full of products each month, it's something to look forward to especially since I have put myself on a spending ban whilst I save for a car. 
This month I got to pick what design I wanted on the box, it was a hard choice I must admit but I also must admit that I am really bad at making decisions. The box is a Rifle Paper Co design I believe. 
I didn't really get much use out of many of these products, I gave the foot cream to my Mum and asked her for her honest opinion seen as I am really bad a remembering to use creams. 

Benefit Dew The Hoola bronzer
(RRP £22.50)

I didn't really think much to this because I don't fake tan or use bronzer, I am pale and proud. Besides, I would go orange I'm sure. I used it on my hand and it didn't give my hand a lovely orange color so I decided against using it on my face. If you are into bronzer or have darker skin than me, it might be your thing. I'm going to stick to my natural paleness. 

Cynthia Rowley black eyeliner
(RRP £11)

This is the product that I use most out of Aprils box. It is a very strong black eyeliner which is what I love about it but I do find that it smudges easy, that is great if you are trying to create a smoky eye look but if not you just end up looking like you haven't slept for days. I'm not sure I'd go and buy this for £11 because there are some cheaper alternatives out there. 

Kueshi foot care cream
(RRP £12)

Like I said before, I don't really use foot creams because I'm a lazy fuck when it comes to it. So I gave it to my Mum and asked for a review. She said " I absolutely loved it, smells amazing and left my feet feeling amazing too" so I'm guessing it's good! 

Parlor detangling leave-in conditioner
(RRP £17)

Loved this. Smells amazing, detangles and makes my hair all soft and shinny. It also protects against heat, so if you put a lot of heat on your hair I recommend this. I don't think I would buy it mainly because I feel like my hair doesn't necesarily need it at the moment... If I ever start dyeing it again then I would possibly. 

Nuxe huile prodigieuse
(RRP £17)

I used this one last minute and only so that I could review it. It's a moisturizing oil for hair and skin, I stay away from oils because I don't like the aftermath. I hate the oily feeling. This did have an oily feeling but after a few minutes it dried up and left my skin shinny and soft. I smells great too, very clean (if that makes sense). I wouldn't buy it but only because I can't be bothered with oils.  

Let me know if you've tried any of these products in the comments!!

  1. The box was so good this month! Was worth it just for the sample dew the hoola! I really want to try it, let us know how you get along with it. Plus the box itself is beautiful! I would be having that somewhere on display :)
    Love the blog Lucy, now following you on BL too :)


    1. I do love Benefit products but Dew The Hoola wasn't for me, I'm way too pale for bronzer!
      Thanks! xx

  2. Loved this month's box, it's making me want to repurchase it again! x


    1. I have had it for 3 months now and really loved each one! x

  3. Nuxe oils are my favourite, I've been using them for over a year and I just love how soft and smooth my skin looks and feels after using them :)


    1. ohh I might have to give it another shot then! xx

  4. I enjoyed your UK Birchbox review sorry that you could only use a few products! I personally love the NUXE oil myself!



    1. Thank you! Everyone seems to love the NUXE stuff, but I'm not sure what to do with it haha xx
