Birchbox April 2012

This month's Birchbox is here...and the theme this month is inspired by nature - with "delicious ingredients and healthy formulations".  I think this month's box has arrived at just the right time as I am in the process of purging out the bad and unhealthy and bringing in the clean, eco-friendly, healthy, natural, just-plain-good-for-you products to use not only on my body but to feed my body as well.

The samples included in this month's Birchbox

This month's samples include:
1.  Atelier Cologne: Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue (full size $55 - $150) - It doesn't get cheerier than this juicy scent, a pure blend of blood orange, jasmine, and sandalwood.
2.  Befine: Skincare Sampler (full size $24 each) - 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 (full size $56) - 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 (full size $36) - A real triple threat, this all-natural pigment adds a healthy glow to your cheeks, lips, and lids.  Use it for a gorgeous, unified look. 
5.  (LIFESTYLE EXTRA) Le Palais des Thes: Tea Bags (20 bags $12.50) - Little known fact: the French take teatime just as seriously as their coffee breaks - as evidenced by these sophisticated Parisian green tea blends.

I'm very excited to try out these new, green, and healthy products.   Have you tried Birchbox yet?
