March Birchbox Review



I have been like a kid on Christmas Eve waiting for my March Birchbox to arrive.  I obsessively track it online and excitedly run to the mailbox after work.  Jason thinks I'm very strange to say the least getting so excited over a "Bento Box" as he calls it. 

Anyway, the March Birchbox arrived yesterday...a car and a box of beauty samples in one day...the Purifoy household did have Christmas!  This month's box did not disappoint. 

A few weeks ago I received an email from Birchbox asking if I would rather receive the "Teen Vogue" version this month or opt for the regular box.  I went reg, but you can read about the Teen Vogue version from The Stylish Housewife here.  My box had the following, which by the way, were all generous portions aside from the eye card:

Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens (Set of 25!!)
These shine-busting sheets absorb oil with all-natural green tea extracts.  Full-size, $10

Color Club Nail Lacquer in Lava Lamp
Brighten blah nails with this on-trend neon orange polish.  Full-size, $8

Grandma Stelle's Refreshing Hand Soap
Dress up your bathroom sink: this moisturizing hand wash has a winning citrus scent and leaves skin super soft.  Full-size, $20

Traditions by Nick Chavez Yucca Root Shampooing Cream
Hollywood stylists rave about the restorative abilities of this silky cleanser, which is made with fortifying wild yam and yucca root.  Full size, $20

Stila Smoky Eye Card
Take the guesswork out of matching eye makeup with this mini-palette.  3 shadows, $45

Kusmi Detox Tea
Look good, feel great.  This detoxifying blend of mate, green tea, and lemongrass is a delicious way to boost your wellness.  24 muslin tea bags, $21.95

I'm very excited to try the shampoo.  I can't ever get enough shampoo!  The hand soap smells really good, but I would never pay $20 for hand soap.  I've already tried the green tea oil blotting papers.  Works well, but the paper tears really easy.  I'll probably stick to my $4.00 Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets, but will use and so appreciate the 25 sheets included in my box!

Did anyone get a different Birchbox?  If you aren't a member yet, it's only $10.00 a month for a box of happy!  Join now HERE
