Birchbox March 2016

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost: $10/month

I received my March Birchbox last week and just got around to trying everything and writing my review. I'm on beauty product overload and ready for a break from Birchbox! My subscription has to over soon, just not sure when?!? I have so much to use and get way too many full size products in my other subs.

The box designs have been so pretty lately. I use them for gifts and will miss them when my subscription ends. I'll also miss the point system and getting great deals on full size products by using the points. 

Birchbox always includes an information card explaining the samples for the month.

My first sample was Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio in Filter. These are 3 neutral eye shadow shades. They are very pigmented and would look good on all skin tomes. I'm not a fan of brown shadows, but these colors are better than most neutral palettes I've tried, so I will use them. It probably won't end up being my go to eye shadow palette though.

The sample I chose this month was Parlor by Jeff Chastain Volumizing & Texturizing Shampoo. My hair is very thin and fine, so I can always use some extra volume. This doesn't have a strong scent, which I like and works well. I didn't see a big increase in volume or texture, but I rarely do. And I got a bonus sample of the conditioner to go with this. I always like trying the shampoo and conditioner together.

I also received Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser. I've never tried this product before and I've heard good things about it, so I was excited to try it. It works well. Nothing stood out about this product and I think I've found other facial cleansers I like better.

The next sample I received was Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator. I've received quite a few illuminators in my past Birchboxes, but rarely use them. This was nice and went on smooth and blended in very easily.

The final sample I received was Cartier Baiser Vole Eau de Parfum. I hate receiving perfume samples, because they are always too strong for me and I never use them. They just end up going in the trash usually. This was no different. This scent was too strong for my taste.

The March Birchbox didn't have any products that really stood out to me. I have received products I love in past Birchboxes, but this one wasn't too great. Hopefully I'll have better luck with April!
