My March Birchbox got here and it’s the perfect curation (and box design!) for Spring. It’s making me yearn for warm sunny weather even more than usual.
Birchbox is only $10/month (even less if you prepay), and they have this fabulous point system that makes every month a total steal. For every sample you receive in your box, you can fill out a review to get 10 points (equivalent to $1) to spend in the Birchbox shop. And since every box has at least 5 samples, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get $5 worth of credit each month if you fill out all your reviews. It’s really satisfying when you want to treat yourself to something and remember that you have $50 worth of credit sitting around in the Birchbox shop!
Birchbox was really been on a roll with the special box designs lately! This is probably one of my favorite designs ever, it’s just so pretty and feminine and adorable…not to mention too perfect for Spring.
It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product | $9.00
This was my sample choice for this month, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I know this has a lot of rave reviews which is why I picked it, but I honestly didn’t have crazy high expectations either. But seriously, when they call this a miracle product they weren’t kidding. I already went ahead and got myself the full size with some leftover points! I just spray it onto damp hair and blow-dry or air-dry and my hair is so soft and shiny afterwards. It smells amazing, feels so lightweight you forget you even used it, and make hair a million times more manageable. I can’t believe it took me so long to find this!
Elite Therapeutics Rosemary Eucalyptus Body Creme | $1.18
I like the smell of this and it feels great on my skin, but also doesn’t seem like anything too special. Since I already have body lotion that works well for me, this one is a pass. I also found the sample to be on the small side. It would have been a great size for hand cream or face cream, but I only had enough product to cover like…one leg. Just saying.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser | $5.00
I’ve wanted to try this for ages, and was so excited to finally see it in my box. And now that I’ve tried using this cleansing system, I completely regret not buying a full sized one sooner. I love this 2-step cleanser! The muslin cloth feels great when it exfoliates (and not too harsh) and my skin looks amazing afterwards.
I’m seriously so impressed with this stuff, I bought a full sized one as well. It’s surprisingly affordable for the results. I was picturing a really expensive system since it works so well and feels so luxurious, but you get a 3.3 fl oz cleanser, 2 muslin cloths, and a storage bag for only $25.50. Personally, i think that’s a really great deal.
Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Luminizer Gel | $12.75
I admit: I totally thought this was a nail polish when I first got it. I’m glad I actually read the Birchbox description before I attempted to paint my nails with it! I’m impressed we received the full size version, and I know this is going to last forever since a little goes a long way. Personally I thought it had too much glitter/shimmer for an everyday look, but it’ll be super fun for going out.
Roloxin Lift Revitalizing Facial Treatment | $22.00
I love facial masks, so any time I receive a new one I get excited. I was also really surprised at the price for these, and I’m impressed we actually got 2 full sized packets! I almost didn’t want to like this mask since it’s so expensive, but of course I fell head over heels in love with it. It made my pores look so tiny and my skin looked and felt firmer overall. Now I just have to shell out the $$$ to repurchase…
This is officially my favorite Birchbox I’ve received so far. I already made 2 full sized purchases from this box, so that should tell you how much I loved the products! I’m pretty sure the leave-in hair spray is a new holy grail item for me, and the Liz Earle cleanser is quickly becoming my favorite. The Roloxin mask is amazing and I definitely plan to purchase it in the near future. The value for this box is $49.93, which is incredible! I wish I could buy a dozen more of this exact box, I would do it in a heartbeat. Can you tell how much I loved my box this month???
For next month, the 3 sample choices are:
I’m super excited to grab the Jane Iredale Lip and Cheek Stain. I’ve heard amazing things about that brand and I can never have enough stains in my life. What are you thinking of? There’s also rumors that the guest curated box will be Mad Men themed, so I just might have to get two boxes next month!
