If anyone knows me, they know that I am a HUGE Birchbox fanatic! I received my first Birchbox May of 2012! After 3 years I am still obsessed with the items I am receiving. It is such a great brand because when you sign up, you fill out this quick survey of different items you’d like to get and what your daily beauty regimen is like. That survey is then used to customize your Birchbox. If your skin/beauty regimen changes you can always revise your self survey! PLUS, every month you are able to review your samples and earn 10 Birchbox points. Once you reach 100 points you receive a $10 credit towards any item in the store. So if I really like a sample but don’t want to pay the full price for it, I just save up my points until I have enough for the full size and then I will use the points for a free full size item! It is such a great deal and you only pay $10 a month! Since I love Birchbox so much I’ve decided to start a “Birchbox Reveal” for each month, listing the products I’ve received and reviewing them.
Can I just say how much I love this box, I think out of all the boxes I’ve received this one is my favorite! I am in love with the teal blue mixed with the lime green and dark blue polka dots! This to me screams SPRING TIME! Which I am sure we are all ready for some warmer weather.
I love the fact that each Birchbox comes with a cute inspirational quote. This months quote says “I feel most creative when I ____” I just love it! Then on the back of the quote card are the descriptions of each item that came in the box with the full size price. I always keep these cards just in case I want to purchase the full size item!
March Birchbox Finds: Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray, Mirenesse iCurl Mascara, Elite Therapeutics Body Creme, BioRepublic Skincare Mask, Jelly Pong Pong Highlighter
Mirenesse iCurl Secret Weapon 24 Hour Mascara: This mascara is an award winning favorite Australian brand! Every time I use this product it separates my lashes, lifts, and curls my lashes (even when I don’t use a curler – OMG!). This product creates some seriously stunning long lasting lash drama! It is perfect for any date night or big event! This is my secret weapon in my makeup bag.
Elite Therapeutics Rosemary Eucalyptus Body Creme: I am obsessed with hand cream & love it when I receive a sample in my Birchbox. This lotion smells wonderful! Literally, AMAZING! It nourishes, soothes and hydrates my dry skin and it is my little life saver, especially since summer is quickly approaching! This product is made with 70 percent organic ingredients and features aloe vera to calm and renew the skin as well as almond oil, shea butter, and wonderful amounts of antioxidant vitamin E. The smell is of rejuvenating rosemary and eucalyptus oils and every time I wear it, it always feels like I just walked out of a five start spa! Not to mention this lotion helps stimulate circulation and boost collagen production.
BioRepublic Skincare Aloe Resume Revitalizing Fiber Mask: J always makes fun of me when I put this type of mask on but after the 15 minutes of wearing it he just loves the way my skin feels! Since I have such sensitive and fair skin, this product is amazing and I always bring it with me when I go on vacation, especially when I know I will be out in the sun for hours! Instead of using a bunch of moisturizer after a long day in the sun, whether it is a day of hiking, skiing, swimming or just laying out by the pool with a good book & drink in hand my skin always feels parched, even if I use my SPF 75 sunscreen. Yes, I did say SPF 75. This mask is packed with tons of healing aloe vera (aka my best friend), phytocollagen to plump up your skin and nourishing vitamin E to help renew your skin. This mask is biodegradable & paraben, sulfate, and phthalate free! So, if you forget to apply your sunscreen or in my case a second layer, no worries, this mask will do the trick!
Jelly Pong Pong GLOW GETTER Highlighter: I’ve been searching for a really good highlighter for the longest time and since summer is quickly approaching I am so happy this product was apart of my Birchbox. This highlighter gel is weightless, oil free and made with 80 perfect water which won’t clog pores! Can I just say, AMAZING! I apply this product to the apples of my cheeks, underneath the brow bone and at the corner of my eyes where the tear ducts are to finish off my makeup routine! This product gives my skin a subtle, luminous glow to it which I just love! This gel is hypoallergenic, free of mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, and sulfates.
