Birchbox Limited Edition Free For All Box- April 2014

Birchbox put out another limited edition box, and I, of course, purchased it the moment I saw it.  This box cost $44.00 (plus $5.00 shipping).  It’s filled with natural products.  This box is great for those who are health conscious, people like me who love natural products but still use all types of beauty products, and people who want to give natural products a try.  I feel like the term natural is used loosely, but in this box it means the products are free from parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and GMOs.  

The Box —  it reminds me a shoebox and spring…

And, now the goodies!!

These are all deluxe sample size items.

Eco-Armour – Shave with Benefits Shave Foam with Mint and Eucalyptus.  Deluxe Size – 1.7 oz, $3.04.  Full Size – 5 oz, $18.95.

I usually just use soap when I shave, so maybe this will convince me to start buying a shave foam… It says that it helps eliminate nicks and cuts, ingrown hairs, razor burn, red bumps and dull blades.  I hope it works! I can see it helping all of these areas.. I seriously just googled “why do razorblades go dull,” because I always thought it was from not properly drying your shaver… TIL that there are harsh chemicals in shaving creams that break down the metal in the razor… 

Jurlique – Purely Bright Radiance Serum. Deluxe Size – 0.5 fl oz, $29.00.  Full Size – 1.0 fl oz, $58.00.

This is not a product I would normally buy, because it is so expensive and relatively small.  So, I’m happy to see it in the box, but I’m not sure if I’ll get any results from it because I don’t really have any dark spots on my face yet…  It does have a nice scent and makes my skin feel soft.  

Karma Organic Spa – Nail Polish Remover with Soybean Oil and Tea Tree Oil.  Deluxe Size – 15 ml, $1.50.  Full Size, 4 oz, $12.00.

It’s nice to smell a nail polish remover that doesn’t smell like it is going to burn off the hairs in your nose… Haven’t tried this yet, but I hope it works, because it smells so nice I’d like to buy the full size.

Shamanuti – Activated Charcoal Cleanser.  Deluxe Size – 30 ml, $6.00.  Full Size – 6oz, $36.00.

I’ve already used this a few times since Friday and love it!  It smells great and works pretty well too.  You don’t need to use a lot to see your face feeling clean.  I love charcoal in face products, but haven’t used one in a while, so I’m really excited about this!

W3ll People – Hypnotist Eyeliner.  Full Size – 0.04 oz, $16.50.

This was the reason why I bought the box.  I purchased this eyeliner about a month ago from birchbox, but I lost it somewhere in my room (really hoping I’ll find it someday)… So instead of buying it again right away, I decided to wait, and then this box popped up and it made sense for me to buy it, because it’s basically free if you count the value of the other products… I LOVE THIS EYELINER!!! You can put it on your waterline without being scared of weird chemicals going into your eyes and making them red and irritated among other things.  It’s a beautiful black that goes on smooth and stays on pretty well, but stays on a little better with some primer.

Alima Pure – Lip Tint in Rhubarb.  Full Size – 1.013 oz, $12.00.

I was pleasantly surprised with this product!  I like the color, it’s not exactly sheer, but it doesn’t drastically change the color of my lips. It smells/tastes like chocolate so that’s pretty amazing.  And it’s pretty hydrating!

Lov Organic – Assorted Tea.  Deluxe Size – 4 tea bags, $2.98.  Full Size – 20 tea bags, $14.90.

I love tea, so I’m happy they gave us four different flavors to try!!

Feed – Feed Ten Pouch.  Full Size, $16.00.

This is a nice makeup bag and the the fact that every bag sold gives 10 school meals.  I’ve seen this brand in target before, and this bag is exclusive to birchbox.  It’s well made and has a cute design!

 

What did you guys think of the limited edition box??  Are you going to purchase it?? Overall, I really like it, while I like some items more than others, I know that all of them will get used at some point.  So it was definitely worth the $49.00 I paid.
