March Birchbox
March Birchbox

The Birchbox theme for March is Spring Forward! So fitting, I actually received my box on Saturday so it was perfect timing. I have found over the past couple months that Birchbox is getting more reliable on shipping for me. Anyone else? For March thte idea is to maximize your daily routine and I did find that my box was full of basics, which was great, because it meant I’ll actually use everything. BTW, Yummy refrigerator oats shown on the card. I’m going to have to stick some in the fridge!

March 2014 Birchbox Samples

Nothing in my March box stood out as a ZOMG this is so amazing, but I was happy to have my samples and my points for reviewing them! I am on a yearly subscription so the actual monthly cost is pretty low! I only got 4 samples plus a Birchbox Find (aka a drugstore product)

Jergens® BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream ($1.36) Hydrates, Illuminates (very slight sheen) and supposedly evens, firms, and corrects too! Fun to try.

COOLA Tinted Matte SPF 30 for Face ($3.60) Tinted skin-safe mineral sunblocks, and fortunately unscented (I believe I was sent the rose in a box before – no thanks!). I will use this!

Luster Premium White Luster NOW! Toothpaste ($5.08) I’m not going to complain about getting toothpaste, but I can see how some might be cranky about it. I think it’s funny how the instant whitening lasts for hours. I think I might want my teeth white for longer than that?

HAVVN Night Cream ($4) This is a nice smelly (naturally) night cream with lavender, rosemary, and bay laurel. It’s very rich and great for my dry skin!

English Laundry No. 7 for Her (~$2 – the size wasn’t on the bottle) Hints of pear, jasmine, melon, and apricot with base notes of sandalwood, vanilla, and musk. I love trying new fragrances and this one is quite different!

At $16.04 definitely not a blockbuster box, but I liked it anyways! I’m a bit concerned with getting 2 low value boxes in a row, but hopefully Birchbox will knock my socks off next month! What did you get this month?

    “I think it’s funny how the instant whitening lasts for hours. I think I might want my teeth white for longer than that?”

    LOL…no kidding.

    I am getting #34 which is all skincare. No variety at all. Kinda bummed about that, but I will try most of it anyway. Vasanti, Coola, Air Repair, Previse and the find which is more skin care-Jergens,

    I’m getting (cannot ever figure out the box number) Jergens® BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream, Supergoop!® City Sunscreen Serum, Curly Hair Solutions™ Curl Keeper, INIKA Certified Organic Eye Liner, Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume. – I think will like it okay – but I don’t usually like getting perfume… silly allergies!

    Wow, you got yours super quickly!

    I’m getting box #31 (coola, mighty leaf tea, beauty protector protect and detangle, air repair, skinfix body repair, and chocolate). I don’t really like what’s coming in my box so I may have reactivated my second account, haha.
