Birchbox March 2013 Review


Sorry for the late review; wow, it’s already time for April’s Birchboxes to arrive. But anyways…  It was March Madness month for Birchbox. I don’t know if I was “mad” about Birchbox this (past) month, but overall, it was pretty solid, little box.


The full contents!


Five items. Well, four plus the beauty extra!

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream in Blueberry | I’ve never used a shaving cream, per sé, but this one is formulated with shea butter, jojoba and coconut oil, and squalene. I had to look up what squalene is, but it’s apparently an oil-based compound. It smells so delicious and so *blueberry*, but I haven’t tried it for shaving yet. I dabbed some on my hand to feel, and it’s very smooth and not foamy at all.


Incoco Nail Polish Appliqué in Freshly Picked | I’ve never tried nail decals before and I’m happy to try these out. The print is almost sixties-like with small pink flowers over a beige background. There are 16 double-ended strips included and claims to last up to 14 days.


Serge Normant Meta Revive Dry Shampoo | I usually get my dry shampoo from the drugstore, and it’s usually the cheapest brand they sell, so we’ll see how a higher-end product would work in my hair.


twistband Headband | My first twistband! I know that at least one box a month will have a twistband product included, and this is just my first one. It’s a silver headband and it seems okay. It looks like a fancy elastic band (but not anything more than underwear elastic). My hair is usually way too thick and slippery for just one headband to hold up.


Madewell for Birchbox Emery Board | The beauty extra this month! Floral print emery board for smoothing and shaping nails. It’s cute and needed for the application of my nail decals.

Overall: It’s not a bad box at all, but not much that I was dying to try. Other boxes had samples from Benefit and MAKE that I was more interested in. My favorite items this month are the emery board and the nail decals.
