Birchbox March 2015

With Birchbox you get monthly boxes of five personalized beauty samples, tailored to your profile. They promise to help you try cult brands, up-and-coming lines, and everything in between.  They also say you will never receive the same product twice.  Birchbox runs at $10.00 per month plus $4.95 shipping but you can get yearly plans for $100.00 plus shipping as well.  This makes it one of the more affordable boxes out there. Each box is different and reflects the theme of the month.

You can fill out the card this month to try to win full size products of your samples.  The back of the card lists the items and full size retails.

Under the paper is my stuff and I’m excited about the sponge even before I check out anything else.

Beautyblender Original-$25.00

I have always wanted one of these. I normally use my fingers to apply makeup but have heard nothing but great things about these blenders.  I includes a bar of cleaner for it as well.

Harvey Prince Ageless Perfume

So somehow this blend of scents is supposed to make you feel and smell 8-12 years younger.  When I first sprayed it on I hated it but within a few moments I changed my mind.  It’s main scent is grapefruit and while I can;t see how it can make me smell younger I will be weraing this.

Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rouge in New York-1.7g

This is soooooo red.  It goes on really smooth and has a nice soft finish but it is definitely not an everyday colour for me.  It is supposed to be long wearing as well, so  I guess we’ll see.

Number 4 Hydrating Shampoo-30mL $3.28

If I’m only going to get one of a shampoo or conditioner I would rather get the conditioner.  This shampoo is good for colour treated hair.  It also should create shine and moisturize your hair.  Since I’ll have to use my regular conditioner it’s hard to tell how great it will work but if it makes my hair feel clean I’ll be happy.

Paula’s Choice RESIST Barrier Repair Moisturizer with Retinol-15mL

This moisturizer will hydrate and firm skin, repair signs of aging, and reduce wrinkles.  I’m having a hard time getting this out of the bottle so I’m hoping that with some continued pumping I can make it work.

I couldn’t get a value for this box because I was unable to determine how big the full size versions were.  You get points for reviewing your box items, that you can then use in their store.  If you find a product you love, any item in your box has free shipping for the month also. The American boxes do have a few more perks like selecting one of your samples and a mens box but I am hopeful once they get settled in Canada the same types of options will be available.

If you want to sign up send me a message and I can get you a link.  You can also go to their Canadian site by clicking here.
