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...so 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 :)
