Birchbox | March 2013

I received my first Birchbox in the mail today! I pre qualified late in the month, but was lucky enough to get the March Birchbox. If you don't know what Birchbox is, it is one of the many beauty subscription boxes offered that delivers hand picked beauty samples straight to your door each month for $10. You receive 4 -5 samples, learn tips and tricks, buy what you love, and earn points.

This month was all about March Madness and Birchbox is hosting beauty face-offs on their Facebook page and teaming up with Birchbox Man to run their own March Madness bracket.

My box came with the following beauty samples:

Juice Beauty | Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream

"This color corrective cream is the ultimate multitasker. The lightweight cream natuarally improves skin tone with vitamin C and grape-derived resveratrol."

I've never used a repairing cream before, but from the description, it sounds like something I'd like. I'll have to give it a try and see if it can improve my skin tone.

Juicy Couture | Couture La La

"Meet the latest addition to our fragrance collection: a heady mix of mandarin, red currant, lily, and orange blossom."

I'm not the biggest fan when it comes to "traditional" perfumes. I have a very sensitive nose and therefore if I wear anything with scent, I will continuously smell it has to be light, fruity, or something simple to not cause me to have a major headache. This perfume sample is definitely in the no category for me. It is really strong and smells a lot like perfume an older woman would wear, so I just know that it would cause me problems if I wore it.

Serge Normant | Meta Revive Dry Shampoo

"The A-list stylist created this volume-boosting mist to give second-day locks a lift. Bonus: The subtle fragrance leaves hair sweetly scented."

Believe it or not, I still haven't tried out a dry shampoo. I've heard a lot about them and have seen so many of them out there. I actually have another sample I received from Beauty Army that I need to test as well. I'm hoping that it works well, so super excited to try it!

Whish | Shave Crave Shaving Cream

"The organic shea butter in this foam-free shaving cream makes for an insanely close shave and leaves skin incredibly soft. We love the exclusive blueberry scent."

This is the one product that I have seen in a lot of the Birchboxes for March. Now, I would never pay $20 for a shaving cream, but I will definitely give this sample a try. It smells really nice and makes me crave blueberry dessert lol.


Madewell for Birchbox | Emery Board

"We teamed up with Madewell to create this adorable mini savior, patterned after a print from the new spring collection."

This box came with a beauty extra, which was a cute emery board. Nothing too special, but I can always use a spare emery board. I forgot to take a picture of the pattern, but it does have a cute spring floral pattern on the back.

For my first box from Birchbox, I wasn't super impressed, but I think I missed out on some of the good stuff since I got my box so late in the month - just my opinion though. Just hoping for a better box next month :)


  1. I am so jealous! I have been wanting to try BirchBox so bad! Everytime I see something about this, I love the different products! Thanks for sharing!

  2. All of those products sound amazing! The shave cream caught my eye the most, but I would have to try it to see if I'd ever pay that much.

  3. The shave cream looks interesting. Would love to try that. Nice haul!
