Bloom :April Showers Bring May Flowers

Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review.  I was provided with the products mentioned  in exchange of my honest  opinion which may differ from yours. 

I am so glad that spring has sprung finally (except a possible frost this coming Thursday, oh boy) but I am not complaining.  I am just happy that  winter has finally left and we can stay  outside and  enjoy a warmer weather and at the same time savor the  sweet scent of the blooming flowers in our garden.
Yesterday was our first day of cutting our grass.  I also tilled our garden using our garden claw which is a great exercise.  We decided to expand our garden this year so we could enjoy eating more fresh veggies that are grown in our backyard.

Do you know what else is blooming?  The April edition of Beauty Box 5 is full of  it.  With these pretty things you can  break out your winter dry spell  with a blossoming attitude and flourish all month long!  My favorite  of this month's box is the  twinGloss and the  organic lip balm.  The other three products inside is the Hula bLiss body lotion, nail polish applique set,  and facial cleansers.  
 I love the these First Aid Beauty Facial cleanser, it is so gentle to your skin when you use it to wash your face after a long day of staying outside love it that it has a PH-balanced cleanser and it's paraben-free.  It is safe for sensitive skin, I am thinking of  buying the regular size of this cleanser since I like how it make my skin feel after I wash it with this.
 This Incoco nail polish applique set is very pretty.  I haven't had the chance to use it yet since I am doing a lot of gardening lately so it would be a waste if I use it.  
 I love organic  lip balms so when I see this  Lasting Smiles passion fruit mango  organic lip balm, I  smiled.  The current one that I am using is a coconut and hemp organic lip balm which I really love so this mango would be a great replacement for it.  I like the fact that a percentage of every sale of this lip balm will go to a charity that give funding to  cleft surgeries for children.  Imagine, while you smile, you also give a smile to someone else when you buy this specific  lip balm.
 Two is better than one, they always say, well this twingloss   is a proof.  This fun tubes mix complimentary shades  every time you apply for non-sticky, super shiny lips.  This is perfect for summer!
 Okay, I have never tried any product with goat milk so I was hesitant to use this  lotion but I was very surprised that it actually  hydrate my skin really well.  This Dancin Goat Hula Bliss lotion  also has coconut oil, lavender, eucalyptus and rosemary which is why, it  will make your skin feeling so soft.
Okay, that is it for now. My outdoor fitness continues now that is getting warmer.  We been hitting  our neighborhood with our family walk.  
My husband have signed up to the Biggest loser contest at his work so he is very motivated to be working out regularly once again. We are planning to sign up also for the marathon a that his company have attended last year. Hopefully, we could train for it and participate, it would be fun to do it as a family.  Only my husband have participated last year because we did not really know what to expect but since we witnessed it and saw  that it is doable, we would love to  participate as well.

  9. My wife subscribed to Beauty Box Five in the past but we had to cancel when money got tight. It's a shame, because I know she would have loved the gloss and lip balm this month.

  24. We're doing a lot of gardening now too. This weekend, all of our seeds and seedlings go in. I can't wait to have delicious veggies that we've grown ourselves!
    Your beauty box looks lovely and I like how you've sandwiched in a review with your week. Makes it more interesting (I've gotta start doing that lol). Congrats to your hubby for entering the Biggest Loser challenge at work!
