Birchbox Limited Edition: In Full Bloom

Disclaimer: This is not  sponsored post.  Products mentioned were purchased by me.  All opinions expressed are my own.  

I am a sucker for limited edition subscription boxes.  Whenever Glossybox or Birchbox release a new box,  I need to check them out.  When Birchbox released their In Full Bloom box last week, I did not hesitate to order it right away.  

This box is separate from their monthly $10 box and is available from the Birchbox shop.  It contains 9 products, 5 of which are full size.  

1.  Make Satin Finish Powder Blush in Geisha - A satiny formula that gives cheeks a rosy pink flush. (Full Size $30/.16oz)

This color looks absolutely beautiful in the pan.  I have not yet swatched it because I haven't decided if I am going to keep it or give it away. I don't own anything from Make and the color is so pretty, I am considering keeping it even though I have a million blushes already. A full size blush is included in this box.

2. Soap & Paper Factory Shea Butter Hand Cream in Bella - The all-natual shea butter salve is made by hand and has a velvety feel and addictive formal scent.  (Full Size $18/2.3 oz)

This is another full size product.  It is an a metal packaging, which I tend to like just because its so pretty and feels a little vintage.  Bella contains notes of grapefruit, bergamot and black pepper.

3.  tenoverten nail polish in Spring - From the just launched Spring Collection, this five-free nail polish offers gorgeous, chip free color without harsh chemicals. (Full Size $18/15ml) 

I already have one of these polishes and like the formula.  Spring a really pretty pinky/coral. This box contains a deluxe size sample of this polish, which at 10.4 ml is pretty decent.  Given the full size price it a $12.48 value.  

4. TokyoMilk Bon Bon Lip Balm in Rose Water - With shea butter and aloe, this sweet-tasting rose water lip balm packs a hydrating punch.  (Full Size $10/.22oz)

I probably don't need another lip blam, but since I am almost out of by Dior creme de rose, I will probably use this one next.  I was surprised by the scent, because it is sweet and not floral as I would expect.  The box contained a full size lip balm. 

5. Votivo Candle Travel Tin in Rush of Rose - Whether you're traveling far and wide or staying close to home, this perfumed candle will put a spring in your step.  (Full Size $12/4oz)

I never really liked the scent of roses until recently and now I can't get enough of it.  I don't know how this will burn but it smells really pretty. I also like that it comes in a travel tin just in case I want to take it on my next getaway.  The box contains a full size travel candle.

6. Cecila Wong Skincare Anti-aging Rose Serum Spray - Created by a celebrity facialist, this rose mist plumps fine lines, boosts elasticity, and restores dewiness. (Full Size $40/4 oz)

I have been kind of obsessed with facial mists lately.  While this is a serum, I think it will travel well and I like what it claims to do so I'm excited to try this.  

7. Juara Tiare Jasmine Tea Bath & Shower Gel - Inspired by Indonesian beauty recipes, this sulfate-free formula cleanses and softens skin with a trio of antioxidant teas. (Full Size $28/12oz)

The scent reminds me of something from my youth, I just can't put my finger on what.  I like that this is sulfate free.   It is kind of a small sample.  I usually save my shower gel samples to travel with but I'm not sure this would even get me passed two or three days. Either way, I can use it here at home and see how I like it.  The box contains a 1 oz sample which is about a $2.33 value.

8. Tocca Fragrance Rollerball in Giulietta - An airy fragrance brimming with enchanting florals, including pink tulips, lilacs and lily of the valley. (Full Size $68/1.7 oz)

I absolutely  love Tocca fragrance.  Stella is my all time favorite but I am excited to try Giulietta.  This contained a rollerball which aren't available on Birchbox, but retail for $20 at other merchants.

9.  Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser Starter Kit - This two step ritual uses a cleanser with chamomile to purify and soothe, and a muslin cloth to gently polish and soften skin.  (Full Size $24.50/3.3 oz plus 2 cloths)

I have been dying to try this cleanser!  I have been using cleansing oil to remove my makeup, but this is supposed to be amazing!  I received a 1 oz sample with one muslin cloth, which is about a $5.61 value. 

I may not keep everything in this box,  just because I already have about a million other products, but I do love everything in it.  While it retails for $58, the value of everything combined is $126.62.
