March Birchbox Review

Birchbox is a monthly themed (somewhat) subscription service for beauty and makeup products, they seem to focus on makeup, skincare, with a fragrance thrown in. Each month you will receive 4-5 larger sized samples with some full size beauty products too. The subscription costs are: 1 monthly box– $10.00, 3 month subscription – $30.00, 6 month – $60.00, 12 month – $110.00 ($9.16 per box) and all include free shipping.

Birchbox also has a points program where you earn points for referrals, purchases and items you review from your box. The points allow you to receive discounts on future full size purchases from their shop (100 points = $10.00.) and any full size item you purchase from your monthly box includes free shipping ($5 flat shipping rate for items that don’t qualify.)

Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow – $9.00
I am very excited to try this, but am a little skeptical because it is suppose to be a one color fits all – I sure hope so!

Caldrea Body Lotion Samples in Tea Olive Lime, Aloe Water Apricot and Coconut Fig Leaf – $2.00
The scents sound interesting and relaxing! They seem to have a whole line of household products as well!

Madwell for Birchbox Emery Board – $5.00
These are always handy to have on hand, and with my new home manicure obsession, this will definitely get used!

Whish Shave Cream in Blueberry – $3.00
I can’t wait to try this! They also have products that help calm and prevent ingrown hair and another one that helps inhibit hair growth! Seeing as I am not visiting a laser for permanent hair removal anytime soon, I may be checking out these products in the very near future!!

Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum – $11.65
I really hope this works, I have a few spots that like to pop up periodically so this is a welcome addition!!

Benefit Hydrating Concealer Sample – $0.25 (?)
I haven’t tried this yet, but I do like the company and have high hopes for it’s performance!

The approximate value of March’s Birchbox is $30.90. This is much better than last month value and well above what I spent! I am still very happy with my subscription and look forward to next month’s box.
