Birchbox April 2014 Review - Box 2

I decided to get a second Birchbox this month, because there was a code that would give you 200 points ($20 worth of money to spend in the Birchbox shop). I did not cancel my other box, I just merely opened a new one. However, Birchbox apparently made a mistake with that code and has since taken 100 points from my account. Not cool, Birchbox... 

Birchbox is a monthly subscription box featuring beauty and lifestyle samples. It is $10 a month and you receive 4-6 samples, deluxe sames, and sometimes full size products. Their point system is really good, and you can end up getting a lot of full size products for free. You can join here, so we both get points: 

I received Box 47.

Each box comes with a card detailing what the theme is and what it in your box. 

This month each box contains a rainy day tip card.
I got tip #34: Explore the world of podcasts: for starters, This American Life, Radiolab, 60-Second Science, and WTF.

[the product]: Fekkai Salon Techniques Color Care Shampoo

[from the card]: This hydrating cleanser uses plant proteins to keep color-treated hair looking true-to-hue.
Massage a dime-sizes amount into damp hair and rinse.

[the size]: 2 oz.

[my thoughts]: This is a pretty big sample, but I am skeptical about the "dime-sized amount." It smells fantastic though!

[the worth]: $6.25
[the product]: Harvey Prince Hello cologne

[from the card]: Best selling spritz that mingles cheerful citrus with floral notes. Well, hello there!
Apply to pulse points and let this upbeat scent do the talking. 

[my thoughts]: I already know I LOVE this because I sampled it in my first box!! It smells so good and I just ran out! So happy to have another sample!:)

[the worth]: $2.00
[the product]: Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner - in Suman(black)

[from the card]: This soft wax liner delivers rich, long-lasting color that won't irritate eyes.
Trace lash line starting from the inside corner of each eye. Blend to create a softer look. 

[the size]: travel size

[my thoughts]: This is really smooth!!! I wasn't excited about getting another black eyeliner, since I just got one in my Ipsy bag, but this one is really nice!

[the worth]: $7.00
[the product]: My "lifestyle extra" is a Kind Healthy Grains Bar - Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt.

[from the card]: The perfect combo of salty and sweet, these delicious treats pack a whole-grain punch. 
Toss 'em in your purse or gym bag for a healthy pick-me-up whenever, wherever.

[my thoughts]: I had this in my first box, and it is sooooo good!! Love the salty and sweet and I love that I can eat it since it is gluten-free!

[the worth]: $0.79

[the product]: Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Wash
[from the card]: Infused with marine extracts, this gentle wash leaves skin hydrated and freshly scented.
Squeeze onto loofah or washcloth, and work into a rich lather. Apply to skin, then rinse. 
[the size]: 1.35 oz.
[my thoughts]: This has a really nice, clean smell! Can't wait to try it out!:)
[the worth]: $2.50
[Total box worth]: $18.54 - eh...
