March 2012 Birchbox Photos and Thoughts

Holy, cow. After the disappointment of the February Birchbox this is the most amazing surprise. The most amazing Birchbox (for me) to date.

This month, subscribers had the option to choose their regular Birchbox, or a Birchbox put together by Teen Vogue Beauty Guru Eva Chen. Obviously, after last month, I was welcoming something new. It felt risky… and I was thinking “what if I like the regular Birchbox more and I’m sad I didn’t get that”. Normally I’m not a gambling woman, but I went for it. I’m SO GLAD I did!

~ Annick Goutal Petite Cherie Eau de Toilette

~ Essie Luxeffects Set in Stones (Full Size!)

~ Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Papers

~ Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Joy (Full Size!)

~ Twistband Hair Tie

~ Coupon Code to Modcloth.com and a discounted subscription to TeenVogue.

The Annick Goutal Petite Cherie Eau de Toilette smells pretty nice. You can smell the floral musk, but it’s also sweet.

A full size Essie Luxeffects was an excellent surprise! And one I don’t have! I got the shade Set in Stones, not sure if everyone got the same. Essie is a polish brand I’m fond of, so this alone is amazing.

Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Papers couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve heard great things about this product and it will be a perfect travel companion for my trip to Disney!

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Joy was another full size product, one that retails for $24.00!!! I love Tarte and am over the moon that this product was included in this months Birchbox.

I’ve received Twistband Hair Ties before, and have even bought more! I love the product and am happy to receive a color I don’t already have in my arsenal.. the perfect spring green!

The coupon codes were a nice addition. I’m over 30 so I won’t be subscribing to Teen Vogue, but I’m interested to check out ModCloth and see if I can put that coupon to use.

Overall, this month is AMAZING… more than amazing! Obviously, based off of this months sampling, I will absolutely be continuing my subscription! This month made the whole year worthwhile for me! LOVE!

Full size products will be reviewed in separate posts, so be on the lookout for those!
