I haven’t responded to one of these workshops in a while because I have been busy with many other things in my life, but I decided that I would start taking the time if I could also link it with other things I am doing in my life.

Avon has inspired me to start doing things that help other people.  Avon and mark. both have foundations that help specific causes that are important to women.  The cause I am going to focus on today is domestic violence and dating abuse.

One in three women worldwide will be the victim of domestic violence in her lifetime.  If it isn’t you, it could be someone you know.  It could be your mother, your sister, your daughter, your granddaughter, your friend, your neighbor, or your colleague.  Doing everything you can to help them is important.  If we stand together, we can stand strong.

DESCRIPTION Limited Edition  International Women's Day Tote! 100% cotton. 15 1/2" H x 15" W; handle drop, 10". $1.50 will be donated to the Avon Foundation to fund programs to end violence against women.  At Avon, we are committed to empowering women. The Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program has committed nearly $50 million, in over 50 countries, to organizations and programs focused on awareness, education, direct services and prevention programs to help end the cycle of domestic and gender violence.

April 2015 Birchbox Delivery

April 2015 Birchbox $10.00 monthly subscription

April 2015 Birchbox
$10.00 monthly subscription

This is my first review for something like this.  In March, my daughter subscribed to Ipsy and receives free samples and full-size products on a monthly basis for only $10 per month.  I liked her bag, but we thought I should try Birchbox so we would be getting different items every month and we could share.  So, this is my first box from Birchbox.

I must say that I really like the box, however, that being said, I’m not sure what do do with it.  It’s too nice to throw away, but I don’t really think I will have any use for it.  Ipsy items at least come with a makeup bag every month, that I would be able to use to organize my growing collection of products.

jane iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain Full-Size $25.00

jane iredale
Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain
Full-Size $25.00

The first item I am going to review is the jane iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain.  I received the sample size of this item and I’ve got to tell you that I’m definitely not impressed.  It feels and tastes like a ChapStick, and other than making my lips look slightly glossy, there is absolutely no pigmentation whatsoever in this product.  Other people seem to like it, but I am not about to spend $25 to purchase a full-size version.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel Full-Size $48.00

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel
Full-Size $48.00

This next item is the Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel.  I also received a sample size of this, but I sincerely wish it had been a full size.  I’ve used it once and with only a very small amount it had amazing results!  I just love the way my skin feels after using this.  If I could afford it right now, I would definitely be buying the full-size version.

Supergoop!® Daily Correct CC Cream ​SPF 35+ Full-Size $32.00

Supergoop!®
Daily Correct CC Cream ​SPF 35+
Full-Size $32.00

Third in the box, is Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream.  I haven’t actually used this sample yet, but I did swatch it and I liked the results.  Hopefully I will like it when I actually put on a full face.

Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm Full-Size $29.00

Temple Spa
Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm
Full-Size $29.00

Fourth in the box is Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm.  I received the sample size of this as well and absolutely love it.  The smell is definitely calm and soothing, like being at the spa.  It also makes my skin soft and smooth.

Harvey Prince Yogini Fragrance Full-Size $55.00

Harvey Prince Yogini Fragrance
Full-Size $55.00

Lastly in the box is Harvey Prince Yogini.  I’m not really sure how I feel about this sample.  I put it on today and my dog kept trying to eat my hair (which he has NEVER done before) and my cat kept trying to lick my wrist.  There must be something in it that animals like.  Perhaps it is the myrrh?  I kind of like the scent, but I’m not so in love with it that I would buy a full-size version no matter what the price.

So, that’s it.  That’s my April Birchbox.  I hope you found this interesting or helpful in some way.  I’m going to go ahead and continue the subscription for one more month to see what the next one is like.  But, in the meantime, I’ve already subscribed to Ipsy to see what they may have to offer.  Hopefully I don’t get all the same products as my daughter, but that is unlikely to happen since they personalize each box.

By the way, you may click on any of the product pictures and it will take you to the website so you may see more details about the products and purchase them if you wish.
