Green Grab Bag April 2012

It’s funny… when the mail comes, my daughter Lizzy knows what’s in the box when it’s delivered even before she sees a label. Did I mention that she’s almost 5?

So our square box arrived on the doorstep and Lizzy says, “Mommy, our Green Grab Bag is here, go get it.” She loves the unveiling and get’s to smell everything and always has a comment about the products. She’s becoming a very well informed consumer! 

As always the Green Grab Bag had some great natural beauty products nestled inside the green way bag and recycled green packaging.

Deep Steep Moisture Stick  -  melts when it comes in contact with the heat of your skin (I might have to keep this in my purse, my skin has been a little drier than usual mid-day)

Prem Soaps Organic Olive Oil Soap  -  These soaps are made in small batches and add moisture to the skin.

Heaven’s Alchemy Perfume  -  I received 2 samples one called St. Petersburg (a spicy citrus with a hint of musk) and the other called Kyoto (a fruity floral with amber base tones). Both of these perfumes smell amazing! And checking their packaging on-line, the bottles are so pretty. This perfume is made in the USA, not tested on animals and contains no animal by-products, is alcohol free, paraben free, Phthalate free and color additive free. 

Aguacate & Co Skin Care  -  Hydrating Facial Creme  an organic skin care solution

AnnMarie Gianni Coconut Body Oil  -  great for rough, dry, wrinkled and damaged skin 

Angelina Organic Skin Care  -  I received a trio of products in a pretty lavender bag

  1. Rose & Cardamom  Foaming Face Wash for dry & mature skin
  2. Coconut Bliss Exfoliating Cream Mask
  3. Youth in Bloom  Phyto-Active Firming Night Cream

As you can see, the April 2012 GGB was filled with great eco-friendly beauty products that I think “Mother Earth” would be proud of. Get your Green Grab Bag now

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck

Got a sample of the new Taylor Swift Wonderstruck perfume in my April 2012 BirchBox. 

Wonderstruck is a warm blend of freesia, apple blossoms and soft vanilla undertones. So it’s a little flowery, a little fruity and has a vanilla undertone - I like all those things. 

Lizzy was pretty excited too, she likes TS a lot- and now she can smell like just her.

BirchBox April 2012

I’m always impressed with my monthly BB and this month my husband was the one to bring in the mail so he was around for the unboxing. I think he was feeling a little left out and commented on how many samples were inside… what he doesn’t know is that this month I signed up for Birch Box Men so next month he will have his own box to open up!!

I wanted to get a quick post to show what was in my April 2012 Birch Box.

Benta Berry  G-1 Exfoliating Facial Cleanser  -  an exfoliating cleanser made with finely ground apricot seeds

Pangea Organics  Lip Balm  -  Egyptian Fennel w/ Grapefruit & Sweet Orange  this is a  gluten free lip balm 

Weleda  Pomegranate Firming Day Cream  certified natural skin care, keeps skin soft and protected through out the day

Wonderstruck Perfume by Taylor Swift  -  it’s fruity, sweet and flowery

** Extras:  Pangea Organics  Facial Scrub and Pangea Organics Eye Cream   -  getting extras is always great, especially when they can be used with some of the other box items! The facial scrub is made with ground adzuki beans and cranberry seed enzymes; the eye cream contains Turkish rose oil and tea extracts!

There are some great products this month, and I’m super excited to try them all out. Everything has a fruity theme and made with wonderful natural items found right in nature.

BirchBox November 2011

I’m so excited to share what I received in my November BirchBox.

This box felt like I was being visited by some old friends, I was re-introduced to some great product lines I used to use, so I found it be-fitting for the Thanksgiving November theme. 

Borghese  Fango Ristorative Hydrating Mud  -  Tuscany in a tube! This Italian mud mask treatment hydrates dry dehydrated skin. Leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.

Guerlain  Shalimar Parfum Initial  -  (not pictured)  This is a new version of the classic Shalimar. A younger more flirty version, very feminine light airy floral perfume.

Thymes  Eucalyptus Body Lotion  -  Before you think you’ll attract koala bears when wearing this, let me tell you that this is the prettiest thing a koala would ever have the pleasure of smelling. It’s a light and clean scent, not overpowering like full on euclayptus and all the Thymes lotions are amazing. I LOVE the packaging of this sample. It’s in my purse and almost all gone! 

Thymes  Kimono Rose Body Lotion  -  Light rose scented lotion (extra, foil packet sample) 

Zoya  Nail Polish in Sooki  -  A beautiful glossy red cream mini polish, perfect for the upcoming holiday! 

Two Paper Dolls  Ampersand Coasters  -  (not pictured)  Coasters are always a nice extra, what els am I going to put my drinks on? ;)
