You guys. Birchbox did so good this month! It's full of some seriously awesome goodies, and while none are full sized I'm in love with them all!! The theme for the March 2014 Birchbox is Spring Forward, helping you change with the weather and get more out of everything (like that extra hour of daylight!).

As you open the box the card resting on top gives you a little explanation and greeting on one side and a run down of what is in your box on the other side.

Let’s see what’s going on for March!

Birchbox March 2014 Spring Forward what's inside

From Illume, Go Be Lovely Lavish Hand Creme. The scent I got is Anemone. I love everything about this hand cream... except the sample packaging. The fragrance is lovely, a little goes a long way and it feels wonderful. Smooth, non-greaseball hands. Unfortunately the sample packaging is a tear off, so it'll never be able to be carried inside my purse (which is what I do with sample hand creams) or even thrown in my manicure bag.

From Obliphica Professional, Treatment Hair Serum. As much as I didn't want to see another hair serum or oil in any sample box for a long time, I do really like this one. It smells really good and I use a small amount in my ends before blow drying. It helps keep my hair from lifting at the ends or frizzing up, and my hair needs all the help it can get.

From theBalm, How 'Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream. The shade I got was in "Pie" and it is perfection. Perfect and natural for the lips and cheeks it's not sticky at all and is easy to blend out with your fingers or a brush. I'm definitely going to order the full-size palette!

From Skin&Co Roma, Truffle Therapy Serum Boosting Anti-Aging Serum. I saw this on another blog and the "Truffle" name pulled me in. Truffle makes me think of chocolate but this extract is coming from fungi (calm down it's mushrooms). I'm excited to try the serum but definitely can't speak to the long-term effects because it's just a sample size that will probably last 5-7 days. It smells really good, like coconuts... like tanning oil at the beach.

And, as a Beauty Extra, from LA Fresh, Eco-Beauty Waterproof Makeup Remover. I love to get these in sample boxes. This remover wipe is safe to use on eyes and lips and is my best friend when I want to be lazy and not wash my face, but my OCD won't allow me to go to bed until something is done. There was also a packet of the Oil-Free Face Cleanser to get at the rest of my face.

There was also another extra! A treat from Ghirardelli! It was a single of the Cherry Tango Square and it is YUM. Dare I say I like it better than the Raspberry?!

I was happy with this months shipment, probably happier than I've been with Birchboxin awhile. I've been dying to try theBalm How Bout' Them Apples and chocolate will probably always win me over. I do believe it was worth $10 and it was a nice mix of makeup, hair, body and skin care. I’m definitely looking forward to next months shipment!
