I don’t want to be a negative Nancy, but April’s box was a huge disappointment for me. I was truly excited about one product. It’s not that the products aren’t great, it’s just that some of the products, I know I’m not going to use and other products I’ve gotten before. The boxes are starting to get a little repetitive. Also, shipping for this box was awful. I hate waiting on shipping! And paying for shipping, to be honest. I know there is a process, but I feel like it shouldn’t take that long for packages to ship. Anyways, I got my shipping confirmation on the 22nd and I didn’t receive my box until the 29th. I mean, what’s the point of it being April’s box, if we are getting it in May? To top it off, my Colourpop eyeshadow was shattered 😩😭😭 I think I was expected to be blown away and I just wasn’t. I know they are still new and trying to work out the kinks, but they should let customers know when there is a problem or a delay. With the delayed box, I was expected to be blown away and I just wasn’t.
April’s theme is Let Your Beauty Blossom. What’s in the box:

That rose toner sounds amazing! And we love Differin! xx, Britta & Carli from http://twinspiration.co/
I would be turned off just by the length of time it took you to get it. There is no reason it should be so late in getting to you if its ‘April’s box’. The subscription box industry is getting big, and competitors aren’t holding back on what they can deliver!
