The post for April’s treat was written a little bit later than usual since there were other posts in line (check my running giveaway here!) and also because i had trouble finding my treat for this month from Birchbox. Although i do love their boxes and the Cath Kidston one was adorable, i got a bit disappointed with the last month’s products and in fact April was for me the worst since for me almost all products from April’s box felt like didn’t worth the money spend. So i decided to cancel my subscription on Birchbox for now and try and find some other subscription box that maybe makes me feel more happy and interested!
Thanks to a post by Lynsey on Little Luxuries by Lynsey (go check her blog asap she has great posts!) i found out about Latest in Beauty subscription box and went for it today…So the series will continue and I will explain all about it in May’s Treat!
Anyway, let me talk to you about the one product i actually found interesting from April’s Bircbox and that is the Marcelle BB cream Golden Glow, which happened to be an exclusive for Birchbox.
I really like using BB creams when the weather gets warmer and especially for summer they are my go to, so every year i try to find a favorite one to use! It is a light BB cream with a very subtle color really appropriate for that time of the year when i start getting that glow from the sun. I really liked that it was easy to apply and that it looked really natural. There was no smell and it gave me a nice feeling of hydration while didn’t feel greasy at all. It lasted for the biggest part of the day and as for coverage it gave a nice even skin texture but didn’t really cover everything on my face so i would only use it for when i want this “no-makeup makeup” day!
All in all i found the Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow a really nice product and a pleasant surprise among the rest of the products provided in April’s Birchbox. I would totally recommend it if you want something light to use during summer and for the price of £25.50 for 45ml i think is a good value for money since i didn’t need much product to cover my whole face. Do not expect to get that full coverage as with a foundation but still for a nice smooth face with good texture and glow is just right! As for the Birchbox subscription i hope soon it will be again for my taste and i get to renew it!
Until the next time we meet don’t forget to live the glam life!
