Beautiful March Birchbox

I’ve recently started a Birchbox subscription, and oh boy do I love it.

I’m a big fan of ‘monthly boxes’, having been a bit of a Graze lover in the past. Having spent a lot more time blogging lately, I thought it was about time I got stuck into a beauty box, and Birchbox

seemed to have the most ineresting brands and versatility on offer.

After setting up my subscription, my first box arrived very quickly, isn’t the packaging gorgeous?

For March’s box, Birchbox have created a wordsearch themed box – something my inner geek was very thankful for! The box is a beautiful pastel blue, with white and gold detailing.

I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of products you receive in the boxes, especially as they come in a cute little tote bag too. The boxes themselves are really sturdy ­ I’m probably going to

use mine as draw dividers to store makeup etc.

Rituals White Lotus and Yi Yi Ren Foaming Shower Gel Sensation

I really enjoyed this shower gel ­ it foams up which is really lovely, and smells beautiful. You only get 50ml in the sample, which isn’t much once the liquid foams, but it’s enough to be able to judge

whether you enjoy the product or not. I managed to get about a week’s work of showers out of this, which is pretty good for a sample sized product.

Arrow Boost Color Enhancing Lip Balm

I think this has to be the star of the show ­ Arrow’s lip balm is incredibly moisturizing, has a perfect amount of pigment and the packaging is really cute.

It’s a bit of a gimmick, as the colour is supposedly dependent on the natural pigment of your lips, however I love things like that. This made my lips a really pretty peachy pink.

More Brows Eyebrow Thickening Fibre Gel

For a girl that isn’t really into brow gels, this was quite a hit. I normally find brow gel a bit excessive, as my brows are dark enough anyway and don’t tend to move much throughout the day.

I’m glad I gave this a go though, as it in fact made my brows look more natural, and did keep them in place all day. The wand isn’t tapered, which makes it a little difficult to work with, but overall a nice find.march birchbox

 

Polar Night Revitalizing Cream with Boreal Algae

This has made a nice night cream over the last few weeks, and the size is extremely generous. It’s quite like a gel in texture, which isn’t what I’m used to with a night cream, but it does leave the skin feeling supple and nourished. Lovely.beauty box review

Spectrum Collections Tapered Powder Brush

I think this one has to be my favourite of March’s Birchbox. I’ve never tried any of Spectrum brushes, but they are absolutely amazing.

Super soft, perfect application and funky packaging make this brush one of my new favourites ­- it’s perfect for a subtle contour, great for blush application and you can even apply your foundation with this for a light coverage. Love it.

No. 4 Reconstructing Masque

I haven’t got around to trying this one yet, but I’ll keep you posted!

The Verdict

So overall, quite a success! I was a bit nervous about receiving my first box, as you never really know what you’ll receive, but having discovered some beautiful new brands it’s safe to say that I’m

very excited for April’s Birchbox.
