Birchbox – March Review

March 16, 2015

I had a three month subscription to Birchbox last winter and wasn’t wowed by what I received so I stopped the subscription. (Since then I’ve gone back and rediscovered a few items I received and have really liked them!) Now a year later, I’m more open to trying a variety of beauty brands and products so I started the subscription back up. I’m going to stay subscribed for a coupled more months and then reevaluate if it’s something I find valuable enough to continue. This is only the second box I’ve received and so far I’m more happy with it.

This month’s theme was “creativity” though I’m not sure how creative these products are or that they’d make me feel creative. However, I am happy overall with what I all received.

Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Invisible Spray: I think I may have just discovered my new favorite dry shampoo. I don’t use dry shampoo a ton because I hate how it makes you look half grey, but this goes on CLEAR! It has a great lemon scent and did give me volume. I’ll definitely use this.

Roloxin Lift Revitalizing Facial Treatment: These two one-time use treatments are worth $22, which is great for the overall value of my $10 box. I would like to think my 27 year old face doesn’t need a wrinkle treatment mask, so while I think this is a good value, I’ll most likely give this to my mom to try out.

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint: This product surprised me a bit. It’s fairly thick for a tinted moisturizer, almost like foundation. The color I received matches my skin tone and I liked the matte coverage well enough. I’ll probably throw this sample in my purse and use for any needed touchups.

Fekkai PrX Reparatives Intensive Fortifying Masque: I have never tried a hair mask before so I’m pretty excited by trying this out. The winter really did a number on my hair. This brand is sold at Target so if I liked it well enough and wanted it right away, I could run to the store vs ordering online.

Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer: I love getting lip products in any box. I received the coral color, which I really like. It also seemed to stay for a good amount of time without drying out my lips.

I didn’t feel like adding up the value of my box, but the Roloxin product alone doubled the value of my box compared to what I paid. I hope that as it gets closer to summer, they’ll start including more summer related products like facial sunscreens or texturizing sprays.
