Obviously, I didn't even expect the April Birchbox to be half as good as the March Birchbox, but it was actually still a good one and full of products I'm happy to try! Very much worth my $10.00!

~ J.R. Watkins Hand and Cuticle Salve


~ willa Gentle Cleansing Lavender Facial Towelettes

~ Wonderstruck Taylor Swift

~ Zoya TRUE Spring Collection

~ dropps Laundry Detergent (Lifestyle Extra)

My hubby's family actually got me into the J.R. Watkins line before I even knew what Birchbox was! They use this stuff they call "rub-a-dub" for everything. Literally. One of my brother or sister in laws even ate it. Probably all of them. Which explains a lot ;) Just kidding lol Anyway, the Hand and Cuticle Salve is just as wonderful! It's a bit greasy, but not as greasy as a straight up oil. This is excellent to smear all over your hands before you put gloves on or just on your cuticles to give them a fresh look. The scent is strong (Lavender) which I'm usually not a fan of, but this one isn't offensive. The size sent was a small pot, but will be perfect for my trip to Florida to keep my cuticles in order.

The willa Gentle Cleansing Lavender Facial Towelettes are also going to be perfect for my trip. This small pack of 10 will be a nice face refresher to make sure my face is free of all of the dirt it's going to pick up at the Disney parks! I also like to use towelettes for when I swatch so I can easily wipe product off. However, you can get a pack of 60 at Big Lots for $2.00 that will do the trick just as nicely, if you'll be wanting to use them that much!

Confession time. I never used to like Taylor Swift. But then my kids got into her and now that I've gotten used to her I think she's wonderful. She's an excellent role model and just looks so sweet! Wonderstruck wise.... I'm meh. It's a musky floral and rather strong. I'd actually expect it to be lighter and sweeter. It's okay, though, it just doesn't strike my senses.

I was beyond excited to get a mini size Zoya Nail Polish! I love mini polishes, and the one sent was from the True Collection, which was an amazing set! The shade I was sent is in Bevin, one of my faves from that collection. Since I already have the shade, I'll be tucking this mini away for a future giveaway!

With this months Birchbox a Lifestyle Extra was also sent. dropps Laundry Detergent! I've never tried this before, but it seems to work well. My daughter has sensitive skin and she didn't get a reaction from this. Plus, it's eco-friendly! Can't argue with that.

Overall, I was happy with this months box. It's all items I was interested in checking out, or ones that I will absolutely need for my trip to Disney at the end of this month. I'm already looking forward to getting my May Birchbox LMAO I need to calm down.
