Birchbox - March 2015

Birchbox is the original subscription box, and it's still going strong. Even when the box isn't the greatest, the subscription is usually worth it because of the points system. For those that don't know, Birchbox sends anywhere from 4 to 8 products a month (full size, deluxe sample size, and sample size) and you can review your items each month for 10 points/item. You can also get additional points for getting a yearly subscription or getting referrals. Every 100 points you earn is $10 to use in their shop. Now on to the box!


Another pretty box for Birchbox. Make sure you are keeping your boxes! They have something special planned for them at the end of the year!


I forgot to write what makes me feel creative....whoops! The theme is creativity.


Info card.


Yes To Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes ($1.99) - I am already a believer of Yes to products, (in fact, here's a review of their mystery box from a few months back), so I was pleased when I saw I would be getting this. It's the perfect size for me to throw in my purse or overnight bag without carrying a full size pack.

Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rouge (Paris) ($7.04) - I not entirely pleased with this color, but the product itself is pretty great. This is too purple and too dark for me, but I would definitely use it if I had gotten a different shade.

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant ($6.50) - This is yet another skin product. I'm starting to get tired of getting similar products. I am not a huge fan of exfoliants, and especially one with an ingredient list like this.


Beauty Protector Protect & Oil ($6.49) - This might be a great product, but I wouldn't know because of the way they package it. It needs a dropper or a spray attachment, but not just a cap. It makes a mad mess in this container.

Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream ​SPF 35+ ($2.04) - More Supergoop, bleh. At least this is the right shade! It's such a small container that not even two uses will come out of it, sadly. 


This month's box is valued at $24.06 and I got the extra $5 to use in the store from review points. Still, a box is only as valued as how much you can use. For me, this box was valued at closer to $2. If you got Birchbox this month, let me know what you thought about it!
