04/26/2012: As usual, my Birchbox took forever to get here (one of the few downsides to living on an island) – but it was worth the wait! With over $45 worth of products in this month’s Natural Wonders box including a fabulous multi-purpose organic oil and a full sized multi-purpose makeup stick, its one of the more exciting boxes I’ve received so far!
Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Petite Cologne Absolue ($55/30ml. In Box: Sample Vial). I love citrus scents, especially during the warm months. This fresh take on blood orange manages to be fresh and warm at the same time. With a 15% concentration of the perfume, its also yummy freshness that lasts.
Olie Biologique Huile Moderne ($56/30ml. In Box: 5ml. Sample) The scent of Bergamot and Neroli make this rich Argan Oil based organic oil an instant favorite for after bath, face and hair.
Befine Gentle Cleanser ($24/3.4oz. In Box: (2) .34 oz packets) & Befine Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($25/1.7oz. In Box: (3) .34oz. packets). Cute packaging! These five generous packets of cleanser and day moisturizer with SPF are perfect for travel or for really giving this nicely priced brand a go.
Revolution Organics Freedom Glow Beauty Balm in Bronzed ($36/13g. In Box: Full Sized). Finding organic makeup that feels good and looks pretty is nearly impossible. Bronzed is a deep neutral tan/bronze shade with no obvious red or orange undertone. A bit dark to use alone on the lips – it may create a nice bronze glow on deeper skin tones. It did add a nice shine to the surface of my medium brown hair…
Le Plalais des Thés Tea Bags ($12.50/20 bags. In Box: 2 bags). With lovely essences like white peach, orange blossom and berries, these luxury teas are made with quality green tea – which offers antioxidants and something delightful to sip on. Can also be served cold.
