March 2014 Birchbox Deconstructed

Sunday, March 23, 2014
I received my 3rd Birchbox in March, and I have to say, I was thrilled with it. It definitely made up for what February's lacked.

The theme of the March Birchbox was "Spring Forward". With a focus on losing an hour, the items in the box are intended to help us maximize our daily beauty routine.

Here's what was waiting for me.

1. Gilchrist & Soames London Collection body lotion (Received a sample size. Full size, $16).
This fast-absorbing hydrator will leave skin smooth and silky while leaving behind a light, earthy scent.
My thoughts: Loved the light scent and non-greasy feeling.

2. Keims Cleansing Energizing Shampoo (Received a sample. Full size, $9.50)
This invigorating cleanser helps to fortify and nourish strands for a smooth, silky finish.
My thoughts: I noticed a big difference in the condition of my dry ends. They were healthier after several washes. Great scent too.

3. POP Beauty Eye Shadow Palette (Received a sample. Full size, $24)
Three hues in a versatile palette the go on easily and stay on for a flattering look.
My thoughts: I LOVED the colors that were sent to me and found that this eye shadow remained on my eyelids longer than some drugstore brands without having to use an eyelid primer.

4. Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum (Received a sample. Full size, $20-$42)
This anti-aging serum creates a weightless UV shield and is suitable for year round wear.
My thoughts: Since it is a serum not a lotion, it is not as thick which I liked.

5. LA FRESH Cleanser and Waterproof Makeup Remover wipes (Received 2 wipes. $9.99 per pack)
These are biodegradable wipes that remove makeup, dirt and oil to clean pores and reveal glowing skin.
My thoughts: I loved the oil-free face cleanser wipe. It was a cleanser in wipe form, so it was perfect for those nights when you just don't have the energy to stand at the sink and lather up to wash your face. Hop into bed, pull out a wipe and go to town!

This chocolate offers a unique blend of dark chocolate, tangy cherry, and almond crunch.
My thoughts: YUM!!
