Beauty Box || April Birchbox + Rifle Paper Co

Following on from last months mishmash products, Birchbox this month have teamed up on their April Edition with Rifle Paper Co who are known for their prints. Subscribers had the option of choosing which print they would prefer so naturally I chose the pink floral print for this months box. Before I delve into the contents, I just wanted to point out that there was a big delay with my box so I only really received last week whereas I normally receive the first week that they post them out. Also, the contents are not the same contents that were on my profile back at the start of the month so I'm rather annoying that I didn't receive the Benefit Liquid Hoola Bronzer which I was going to get but regardless, let's delve into what I got this month.

As every box this month had a definite Benefit product into it, I was surprised to see a travel size BADgal Lash Mascara (£17.50) inside the box especially after all the drama. This has an oversized wand that helps to create sultry, voluminous lashes that literally coats every lash. I haven't used this before so I'm hoping it's as good as everyone says as I don't yet have a personal favourite Benefit mascara.

Next up is the So Susan Lip Dome in Melon (£10) that is the only full size in this months box. It is packed with hyaluronic acid and goji berry extracts to help nourish and protect your lips all whilst giving intense colour. This shade is definitely not for me so it will be getting passed onto a friend who will get more use from it.

I've never tried anything from Nuxe before so I was excited to see a teeny Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse (£17+) that is a multi-purpose oil that you can use all over your hair, body or skin to hydrate and nourish. It contains a unique blend of six essential oils including sweet almond, hazelnut and macadamia along with reparative plant oils and Vitamin E that makes it one of the most nourishing oils I've come across so far. 

I've really been getting into my hair products recently especially since I've got ombre hair that needs a lot of maintenance so the Parlor by Jeff Chastain Detangling Leave-In Conditioner (£17) is a welcome addition to my stash. I believe I gave my last one of these away to a family friend so I'm glad to have another sample of it that I can use. This contains a sweet blend of almond extract and vitamin B5 that helps deliver softer, shinier, sleeker hair all whilst doubling up as a heat protection spray.

Lastly in this months box is the Kueshi Foot Care Cream (£12) which I'm not all that fussed about. It is enriched with sweet almond oil and royal jelly to help soothe and soften dry feet whilst the added extra of tea tree oil helps to calm and relieve aching feet that sinks in almost instantly. I'm not particularly wowed by foot creams as they all seem to be the same but I'll give it a go regardless at some point.

What did you think of April's Birchbox 2016?
