Today I'm doing a review on the very first products I tried from my April Birchbox. As I mentioned in my last post I LOVE brown sugar so I was happy to see these in my Birchbox this month. The Befine Skincare Sampler came with three "single serve" Exfoliating Cleanser with Brown Sugar, Sweet Almond & Oats and two "single serve" Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 with Rosemary, Pomegranate & Rice. Here is the adorable little box the samples came in:
I love all of the bright colors on this box!

Where to Buy: You can purchase these products from Befine's website here. I did not see anywhere else that sold these products. The good news is I think they are fairly cheap for good quality products, you can get both products full size for $24.00 each for 4 o.z. of the Exfoliating Cleanser and 1.7 o.z. of the Moisterizer. They also have lots of yummy sounding products that I might just have to try out. Their website if definitely worth taking a look at.
My Initial Impression: Like I said above I loved the packaging for these products, I thought it was colorful and very well done. I also thought that the names of the products made me excited to try them.
Pros: The smell of the Exfoliating Cleanser was heavenly! I did like the smell of the Moisterizer although it was a very muted "clean" smell. The Exfoliating Cleanser made my face feel so smooth after using it. I absolutely loved using this product and I used all three packets three days in a row. The Moisterizer had the consistancy of light sunblock. I used one packet of Exfoliating Cleanser for each application but I am still on my fist packet of Moisterizer due to not needing a lot of the Moisterizer with each use.
Cons: There are very few if any cons to these products. The only cons I can think of is that I thought it was a little difficult to get the products out of the sample packets, especially the cleanser because it was so thick. I also learned that very little of the Moisterizer goes a long way, too much and it's a bit greasy.
Final Impression: I was very impressed with both of these products and I would definetly consider buying them and making them part of my every day routine. I would also love to try some of the other products on Befine's website.
That's all for now, stay tuned as I review the remaining products from my April Birchbox.
