Rainy Day Birchbox

My third and final Birchbox arrived this week and it's a good one! I'm probably not going to renew right now, but this has been a fun experience.

The April box is all about having some fun on a rainy day so, in addition to some products to try, there is also a little "Bright Idea" card (5) with a suggestion for what to do when the weather is bad. Mine says I should get a mani/pedi, which isn't a bad idea considering it's extremely uncomfortable right now to reach toward my toes.

The products in this month's box:
1. theBalm cosmetics: How 'Bout Them Apples cheek and lip cream
2. nyakio: Kenyan coffee face polish, body scrub and hydrating face oil
3. Klorane: dry shampoo
4. Cynthia Rowley Beauty: black eyeliner
6. KIND Snacks: healthy grains bar

Obviously, the first thing I did was eat the granola bar. Aspen and I were heading out to the Zoo after I checked the mail and I added the bar to the snacks I had already prepared. And on the drive to the Zoo I ate it... I couldn't wait any longer! I could taste the maple in it and that was goooood. The sea salt was a bit much, though. I mean, I love sea salt but I don't love huge chunks of it in my granola bar. Still, it was overall a delicious combo of salty and sweet.

I was going to try the eyeliner and lip cream yesterday but after putting on my BB cream and sunscreen I kind of stopped with the whole putting-on-make-up thing. Aspen and I lounged around the house and yard all day and I actually let myself go make-up free for an entire day! That almost never happens unless I'm sick on my deathbed so... I'll keep you posted on those products.

I've heard a lot of good things about Ipsy, which is a similar subscription service, so in the future I might sign up for that. For now, I had a fun run with three months of Birchbox!
