Birchbox March 2015

This month’s theme is creativity, and all the boxes are so pretty! In case you didn’t know, Birchbox is a $10/month subscription service for at least five sample (sometimes full-sized!) beauty products. If you are interested in subscribing, feel free to use my referral link. I decided to go with the curated Beauty Solutions box this month, mostly for the Laura Geller blush and the Supergoop! eye cream. I don’t particularly care for lotions or hair products, but those would be convenient for travel later this month.

 

What’s inside the Beauty Solutions box:

  • derma e: Evenly Radiant Brightening Day Creme SPF 15
  • Whish: Three Wishes Body Butter in Almond
  • Laura Geller: Baked Blush ‘n’ Brighten in Pink Grapefruit
  • Supergoop!: Advanced SPF Anti-Aging Eye Cream
  • Dear Clark: Volumizing Hair Tonic

The top is a pretty mint grid pattern, while the bottom pattern is like a composition notebook.

The blush and eye cream were in the smaller mint box.

derma e: Evenly Radiant Brightening Day Creme SPF 15. Seems like a fairly typical moisturizer. The size is quite generous.

Sample size: 0.5 oz, estimated price based on full size: $6.99

Whish - Three Wishes Body Butter in Almond
Whish: Three Wishes Body Butter in Almond. The scent is definitely reminiscent of almonds! It’s light, and the scent isn’t overwhelming.

Laura Geller Blush 'n' Brighten
Laura Geller: Baked Blush ‘n’ Brighten in Pink Grapefruit. This has some shimmer in it, but not too much sparkle like a teenage girl.

Supergoop! eye cream
Supergoop!: Advanced SPF Anti-Aging Eye Cream. A nice, light eye cream. The size is quite small, which seems to be common with Supergoop! samples. 😦

Sample size: 2 mL, estimated price based on full size: $6.09

Dear Clark Volumizing Hair Tonic
Dear Clark: Volumizing Hair Tonic. The scent is kind of earthy and medicinal. It’s an interesting smell, and I keep whiffing my hair every so often to smell it.

Dear Clark: Volumizing Hair Tonic

Full size: $26.00, 6 oz
Sample size: 1 fl oz, estimated price based on full size: $4.33


 

Total value of the Beauty Solutions box = $26.74

  • Whish: Three Wishes Body Butter in Almond, $3.52

  • Supergoop!: Advanced SPF Anti-Aging Eye Cream, $6.09

Not a bad month. I’m excited to use the blush, and the other products will be useful for spring break traveling!

  1. I liked birchbox, but it seemed that I never got anything that I saw previewed, it always felt like they threw stuff in my box at the end of the line without really looking to see what my profile said, so I cancelled. So far I have been incredibly happy with IPSY though! Enjoy

  2. LOVE this blog! I was recently gifted a Birchbox subscription – I’m excited to receive my first one in April! I may have to give Ipsy a try as well – love the contents of your latest bag!

  3. Great post!! (And thank you for the follow. 🙂 )

    Ipsy definitely beat BirchBox by a mile this go round.

    While it costs more, Luxe Box is much more exciting and worth the money because you always receive full size products as well as can upgrade to specific brand’s usually for free. And THANK GOODNESS we have it up here in Canada! 🙂

    For the US, (which I am totally jealous) there’s also Boxy Charm which again, costs more but also has higher quality full size products. Just thought I’d share the info… 🙂
