March Birchbox Subscription Review
Hi guys, today is the March Birchbox Subscription Review. The March Birchbox contained some great hair care items that came to the rescue to control my hair (about time!). First, I wanted to share images of the outside of the Birchbox because I think it is so pretty. When I saw the aqua, sage green, sky blue, soft peach, white and gold it took me back to Scottsdale, Arizona, where my brother and his family lived for many years. I remember the color palette of the homes, the sky and the landscape being very muted and soft. Needless to say, I love the color combinations and modern geo pattern, I’m hanging on to this one and using it to store some odds and ends.
A series of photos of my hair after using all the hair care products in this month’s Birchbox. I applied the Curl Keeper to damp hair and then styled.
As always, the beauty samples inside were so much fun to test. I couldn’t wait to use the Parlor shampoo and conditioner and then finish with the Curl Keeper. I’ve got naturally wavy hair that gets completely frizzy unless I use product. I alternate between using a flat iron to straighten my hair, and using a hair dryer to tame those waves into smooth curls. I love how these products worked, and gave my hair volume.

Amen! Couldn’t have said it better. I’m so grateful for the women in my life that lift me up and push me to be better.
We already love marshmallows on s’mores (uh, who doesn’t?), but here’s another reason to adore the marshmallow plant: Marshmallow root has the ability to add volume to the actual hair shaft, giving strands major oomph and lift. Developed by haircare master Jeff Chastain, this multitasking sulfate-free shampoo harnesses the power of marshmallow root to boost body and texture in even the finest, most lifeless tresses (all while keeping locks tangle-free). Sweet almond oil protects hair fibers and adds softness, while panthenol increases hair’s resistance to damage and brittleness. Bonus: The formula features the brand’s signature addictive scent, which mixes ripe peach, fresh cut grass, and white woods.
We’re pros at accomplishing multiple tasks at once (our specialty: cooking dinner while answering work emails and catching up on our favorite podcast). We expect the same multitasking powers from our products. This lightweight conditioner nourishes our strands, enhances body, boosts texture, and infuses our hair with the brand’s oh-so-lovely signature scent. Developed by hair pro Jeff Chastain, the formula features marshmallow root (to add volume to the hair shaft while avoiding tangles), sweet almond oil (to infuse hair with softness), and rice bran wax (to increase body, suppleness, and sheen).
It’s the biggest mistake a curly-haired girl can make. After working too much gel through your strands, they resemble a bowl of uncooked fusilli: curly, yes, but also hard and crunchy. Make the switch to this unique styling lotion, which adds definition and controls frizz without leaving your hair feeling stiff. Since the formula is water-based, it won’t leave any sticky residue behind—and it’s also humidity-proof. Best of all, the reactivating formula is ideal for styling between washes: When you dampen your hair, the serum kicks back in to smooth down unruly strands.
Thank you! Finally a lip balm (besides Chapstick) that is odorless. I’m such a fanatic when it comes to perfumes, and I’ve tossed so many lipsticks because they smelled too strong.
We sometimes spend weeks picking out our new go-to lipstick color, which is why we like to make sure our lips are smooth and silky instead of cracked and dry. This balm is a favorite among celebrity makeup artists and dermatologists because the 100% natural formula completely rehydrates depleted skin and lips. Bonus: You can also use it to sooth sunburn, tame brows, and nourish thirsty skin anywhere on your body. It’s tasteless, odorless, and effortlessly powerful.
I never leave the house without sunscreen and I’m loving this light weight serum that glides on and gives my face a layer of protection against the sun. I’ll be spending a lot more time outside now that the weather is warming up, so I was happy this sample came this month.
Day-to-day sun exposure requires the same precautions as an afternoon spent poolside. This light yet powerful serum fulfills that everyday need. Both a moisturizer and a broad-spectrum SPF 30, it fights the signs of premature aging (think: fine lines and sunspots) and prevents future photo-damage from UV rays. Supergoop!®’s unique Hydrovotin 24 complex works with the skin’s own moisture mechanisms to increase hydration levels, while vitamins E and B5 heal past damage. A chemical sunscreen duo absorbs both UVA rays that lead to premature aging and UVB rays that cause sunburn. The top-of-the-line PA +++ rating means the formula meets the highest standards for sun protection. The kicker? This sunscreen serum is noncomedogenic and paraben- and fragrance-free—just what the doctor ordered for sensitive skin.
Perfectly applied eyeshadow requires the right tools—and we don’t mean a Q-tip. With a shadow crayon on one end and a smudger on the other, this two-in-one product creates a smooth, crease-free look every time, whether you’re applying a sheer wash of color or going for a dramatic smoky eye. Best of all, the creamy formula stays put for 12 hours, no afternoon touch ups required.
I hope you enjoyed the Birchbox Subscription Review for March, see you tomorrow for a spring inspired cocktail. Cheers!
