Birchbox March 2013

So I'm back from a week in Vegas and I have a ton of reviews to do and pictures to post but since my Birchbox came today I decided to start with it. :)  I do need to train hubby a little better since Saturday he sent me a text saying I got tupperware, usps boxes, knitcrate, ipsy and some travel documents but it was not followed with a picture.  Really why tease me when you aren't going to take pictures. I'm going to need to work on that.

 These are the cutest little boxes and my friend (Hi Kristin!!!) reuses them with Stampin' up papers and uses them as gift boxes. I can't wait to give it a try so watch out if you are getting a gift from me soon. ;)

This months theme is March Madness and says that this box is filled with products that make the cut- from up-and-coming rookies to veteran all-stars.

This month I got box 25 and it was heavy when I opened it. Since I've been gone the last week I hadn't looked at any spoilers so the whole box was a surprise to me and as much as I like that I know I will peak again next month ;)

Here's what I got:

  • Macadamia Natural Oil - Deep Repair Masque -- This sounds interesting to me and my hair is pretty normal but I will give this a shot and see how well it looks.
  • Supergoop! - SPF 30+ Everyday UV Lotion for Face and Body -- There are two of the SPF wipes. I've never used this brand but I will keep the wipes on hand for when the boys and I make an unexpected park visit. 
  • Benefit - Benetint -- This has me really intrigued. LOL the card that came with it says that it was created by an exotic dancer who was on a quest for rosier nipples. Hmm not what I will be going for but it does say that people now use it for a smudge-proof stain for lips, cheeks or anywhere else. ;) Now if that description doesn't make you want to give it a try then I'm not sure what will.
  • Macadamia Natural Oil - Healing Oil Treatment -- This is what was making my box so heavy. Its a bottle of lush macadamia nut and argan oils.  It also says it has a bonus of cutting down on drying time. Now that is something I'm interested in.  Wish I would of had this with me in Vegas last week.
  • Whish - Shave Crave Shaving Cream -- This is an organic shea butter shaving cream and it smells awesome.  Its a great size so I can see stashing this in my travel bag. Again why did I not have this for my trip.
  • Madewell - Emery Board -- not sure how they knew I needed this but emory boards are one of those things that I always seem to need and I never remember to buy. I've already put this one in my bag.
All in all I think this was a pretty decent box.  I've not tried any thing I got and some of them are very interesting.  If you are still curious Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that costs $10 a month and you get a box of samples to try.  You can then review the products and get points to use towards full size products in their shop.

So did you get a box this month? What did you think?
