This month Birchbox’s theme was April Showers and they included a cute note that went with that theme. They had “52 Bright Ideas For A Rainy Day” and I received tip #8. (See the card below).

Now for the products:
Best-selling elixir that locks in color, protects from heat damage, and adds silkiness.
My Review: I love hair elixir’s and leave in treatments and I was excited about this one. It works well, smells fun and flirty, but my bottle was broken! So I have to poor it into my hand and rub it onto my hair…not really sure if I am getting the same effect that way.
Birchbox and Gala Gonzalez teamed up to create this exclusive shimmery shade.
My Review: This is a pretty color and looks perfect for spring but I honestly won’t wear it because I don’t like shimmery nail polishes. #regift
Next-generation SPF 35 CC cream that triple protects against UVA, UVB, and infrared-A rays.
My Review: I LOVE THIS! It has officially replaced my BB cream and I wear it instead of makeup on my days off. I have already ordered the full size from Birchbox!
The perfect combo of salty and sweet, these delicious treats pack a whole-grain punch.
My Review: I keep almond butter packs, lara bars and KIND bars in my daughter’s diaper bag in case we are out for the day and I don’t have time to eat. But I usually get just the fruit and nut KIND bars so I was excited to try a new one…but the “Gluten Free” labeling worried me a bit since I imagine it wouldn’t taste as good as their normal bars. It was good but not great. The sea salt was a little too much, and the texture was a little chewy…but I enjoyed the pumpkin seeds.
Sumita Color Contrast Jamun Eyeliner (Deep Purple) (NOT PICTURED)
This soft wax pencil delivers rich, long-lasting color that won’t irritate eyes.
My Review: I like using a dark purple eyeliner from time to time and this is a great option. But I usually use Mac’s Prunella for this and don’t see the need to switch at the moment.
