april 2012 birchbox [review]

April's Birchbox is my favorite so far! Ok, I've only had two boxes but it still counts! Let's get started..

Willa Lavender Facial Towelettes
Willa Lavender Facial Towelettes
How it works according to BirchboxEach soft cloth comes pre-soaked with a botanic cleansing formula. Aloe hydrates and heals irritation, lavender calms, and antioxidant-rich green tea helps skin look fresh and glowing. Plus, willa™ never uses potentially harmful ingredients like parabens and sulfates.
How it works according to me: I love these! Convenient and keeps your face feeling fresh.

Zoya True Spring Collection
Zoya TRUE Spring Collection
How it works according to BirchboxEach Zoya shade goes on opaque with just one coat and lasts 50 percent longer than traditional polishes. And you’ll be glad to hear that the vegan-friendly formulas don’t contain formaldehyde, tuolene, camphor, and other toxic chemicals.
How it works according to me: I received the Bevin shade which is a nice sage green. I actually really like this polish. It's true that you only need one coat (which I love!). The consistency is perfect.

Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift
How it works according to BirchboxInspiration for Wonderstruck came from Taylor’s favorite memories and scents. The fragrance is a gourmand floral; a charming and sparkling surprise of vibrant fruits, kissed by a bouquet of soft petals and a touch of sweet indulgence.
How it works according to me: I'm IN LOVE with this scent! I can't get enough of it and need to buy it ASAP! Yes, I know this is a bit teeny-bopperish of me but I love it!

J.R. Watkins Hand & Cuticle Salve
J.R. Watkins Hand & Cuticle Salve
How it works according to BirchboxCanola, olive, and sweet almond oils soften dry skin while protecting your precious paws from environmental aggravators. Beeswax creates a rich moisture shield and gives the balm its creamy consistency. Free of harsh chemicals like parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, the all-natural formula is perfect for sensitive skin.
How it works according to me: Feels a bit oily but it gets the job done. I love this for my cuticles. I received the lavender scent which is lovely.

Dropps Laundry Detergent
Dropps Laundry Detergent
How it works according to BirchboxMade with a highly concentrated formula, each Dropps pac has enough cleaning action for a whole load of laundry. Free of fabric damaging enzymes, the detergent is safe for all fabrics, colors, temperatures, and washing machines. Just drop the dissolving pacs into your washing machine, then move on to more important things on your to-do list—like painting your nails.
How it works according to me: Guys... call me crazy but I love these things! I will admit that I was hesitant to try these out on my clothes because hello! why would I risk ruining my clothes? So I tried them on my husband's gym clothes haha! He doesn't know this of course :) But anyway, his clothes came out smelling heavenly! And these things are so easy to use! You literally just throw a pack in the washer. They also have baby-friendly formulas for all of you mommys out there. Easy, inexpensive, and smells good?! Perfect.
