March Birchbox Recap

Have y'all signed up for Birchbox yet? If you haven't and you LOVE beauty products, you should definitely look into it! It's the best!

So here's what came in my March Birchbox:


My favorite item in the box? The headband! Trust me, I wasn't expecting that to be true when I first opened the box, but after using all of the products, it's the one item I use a lot. The best part of the headband is that it holds my hair in place without causing that awful dent or crease in my hair.

Here's a list of the items, and you can click on each to see what other Birchboxers had to say about them:

Benefit Benetint

twistband Headband

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

Madewell for Birchbox Nail Emery Board

Stella Cadente Miss Me Discrete? Eau de Toilette

I'm not a fan of the perfume, it reminds me of a scent grandmothers wear, and the Elizabeth Arden skin protectant fooled me. I was expecting an actual cream, but once I opened it, it was a smelly ointment. Maybe it could be a good treatment for chapped lips or good for your hands, but definitely not for your face...unless you have a serious skin condition.

I thought the Benetint had an interesting story: apparently it was inspired by an "exotic dancer" who needed something to darken her nipples. WHAT?!?! I didn't try it in this aspect, but I did try it as a cheek stain once and once only...maybe I should try it again. If anything, that alone should tell you I wasn't amazed by it. I completely forgot about it.

The Whish shave cream smells like blueberries and who doesn't need an emery board? I feel like I'm always searching for the one I keep at home.

My April box should be arriving in my mailbox any day now. I'm like a kid each evening when I come home from work and check the mail. Can't wait to get it, try the products, and share any great ones with you!

If any of y'all subscribe to Birchbox, what was your favorite item in the March box?
