Birchbox April 2014 Review

My Birchbox for April 2014 arrived while I was gone and while I was having fun where I was, I was secretly desperate to get home and check out what was in it!
The Cost: $10/mo

What You Get: You will receive 4-6 regular or deluxe size samples each month, ranging from toothpaste and lipstick to chocolate and body creams.

I loved the blue theme and the Rainy Days ideas.  I live in Seattle and its raining nearly every day so we just conduct our days as usual or else we'd get nothing done!
I wasn't super happy with my box earlier when I realized what I was getting.  Now that I have it in hand I changed my mind a little.

I do like that Birchbox includes food items and tea.  I know some people don't care for it but I love it! 

Kind Healthy Grains Bar Maple Pumpkin Seed with Sea Salt-  This was originally the one thing I thought I would love but now that its here, Im not loving it.  I don't like maple and I don't like salt on my sweets! Putting salt on caramels is scandalous!  It ruins the delicous caramel!  Anyway.  Swaps.
Full Size Value: $28.50 for 40 bars
Included Size: one bar

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid with Salicylic Acid-  For all skin types.  Probably better for those with acne.  I just received one of these in another box or I'd be more excited.  It's definitely a good product, though!
Full Size Value: $23/4oz
Included Size: 1oz

Supergoop CC Cream Daily Correct- Tinted sunscreen in a light to medium shade. SPF 35.  Nice travel size and I will keep it in my handbag.
Full Size Value: $32/1.6oz
Included Size: 3ml

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk- Originally, the fact that I was getting more Klorane was annoying.  But while I was on my trip I really wished I had a travel sized bottle of it!  So I'm keeping this even though I was going to give it up for trade.
Travel Size Value: $9
Included Size: 1oz

Cynthia Rowley Eyeliner in Black-  I have way too many eyeliners now and black is so boring so this goes up for swap.  However, this is a very nice product for Birchbox to have in their sample boxes so I'm pretty impressed.
Full Size Value: $16/.04oz
Included Size: .03oz

VERDICT:  Birchbox has a great points program which makes it hard to cancel this.  For every box you buy and each review you do for the products in that box you get 10 points.  Which is one dollar.  If you use the code BB100 when you sign up, you'll get 100 points which is $10.  If you use SFBB100 you may be able to get 200 points which is $20!!  Then don't forget you'll get $1 for each product in your box that you review.  All of these points can be spent in their store and they have great prices and great products.
