March Birchbox Arrived!

This month's Birchbox marks our one year anniversary of receiving the little box of beauty goodies. As you guys know, it's been a roller coaster of a relationship so far...some months blow our mind while others leave us wanting a little more. But for $10 a month, it's still nice to receive something in the mail that you can actually look FORWARD to, instead of the usual boring bills and nagging solicitations for credit cards.

Here's what we received in our Birchbox this month...



Overall, we're really pleased with the items in our box this month. 

~Boscia is a brand that we know and love, so the Green Tea Blotting Linens were a welcome surprise. 

~You guys know how we feel about nail polish, so of course we can't wait to get this neon orange beauty on our toes ASAP! 

~The Grandma Stelle's hand soap is a practical item that we're sure all Birchbox subscribers will enjoy. 

~The Nick Chavez Yucca Root Shampooing Cream has some promise of being a product that we'll enjoy, although we must admit that we're unclear as to whether or not we should condition our hair AFTER using this shampoo cream (the bottle doesn't say), but we're assuming that you do. If any of you guys are familiar with this product, we'd love to hear your thoughts. 

~We're anxious to try the colors on the Stila Smoky Eye Card...hopefully it will be enough to get a couple of uses. 

~And for the last item, they had us at the word "detox." We're both tea drinkers, so it'll be interesting to see what we think. Mendi is going to try this out as a hot tea and Jayme is going to give it a try as an iced tea. You never know, it might just become our new favorite!

So now that we've shown you ours, if you're a Birchbox subscriber, let us know what you received in your box this month! And if you are a former Birchbox customer, let us know if you've moved on to try any of the new monthly beauty subscription services that are out there.

  5. Ahhh!! I so need to stop being lazy, bite the bullet and just do it...

    I totally love blotting papers, so the green tea ones sound amazing!! And the detox tea...um, yes!! I bet that conditioning shampoo is similar to the "Wen" hair line and that you don't need to condition after using.

  17. Love the nail polish! I'm a big boscia fan, so I'm sure I'd like the blotting linens. I'd love to sign up for a birch box, but I see some bad monthly reviews and I chicken out.

  18. I chose to receive the teen vogue beauty picks Birchbox this month and I loved it! I got an Eddue polish, Twirl by Kate Soade sample perfume, a Tarte lip conditioner, a Kerastase hair product and a mesh ponytail holder! It was far better than last months!! Yippee! I want to know how you like the yucca root shampoo.
