March Birchbox | finally. spring.

March 20, 2018

For the month of March, it seems as though I've received my first box of custom samples from Birchbox (last month's was not personalised to my preferences). This is my second month indulging in fun samples of products I would typically skip over when shopping for new makeup or haircare, so I am especially excited to try out these goodies. Of course I will be sure to update you all in a future post regarding my thoughts on the performance and quality of each product, as well as how likely I would be to purchase full-size versions. And not to worry, I have not forgotten about updating you all on my February samples, I am still putting those bits to the test!

In this month's box, it seems as though I have been sent 2 haircare products, 2 makeup samples and 1 skincare related product. Below, I have included the full description of each product, as described on Birchbox's site, as well their respective prices for the full-size version. So if you are interested in learning a bit more about these products and their cost, then just keep on scrolling! :)

amika Un.Done Volume and Matte Texture Spray
Full Size: $25
This easy to use styling spray gives loads of sexily messy, artfully effortless volume. Amika Texture Spray uses zeolite, a naturally occurring mineral, to build up volume, a mix of obliphica extract (sea buckthorn berry), which helps strengthen hair and boost shine, and an exclusive polymer blend help the formula bind to hair and add texture without making strands stiff, crunchy, or heavy.

OUAI Leave In Conditioner
Full Size: $26
This luxurious formula not only smooths your knots and tangles, but it also acts as a frizz tamer, shine enhancer, and heat protectant. The jelly consistency sprays on like a mist so it won't weigh down your locks, and with the help of an amino acid blend, hydrolyzed proteins, panthenol, and vitamin E, it'll be the only styling product you need to apply in the morning. Plus, with an amazing scent featuring notes of Italian lemon, amber, blackberry, and violet, you'll be able to skip spritzing your perfume too.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel
Full Size: $48
This customer-favorite formula is acid-free, so it gently exfoliates and evens out tone and texture, all in just three minutes, without aggravating sensitive skin types. The unique gel uses pH-neutral proteins that bind to dead skin cells to form actual solids you can see. Rinse away to reveal a fresh complexion that’s softer, brighter, and more radiant.

Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm
Full Size: $16.50
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 soothe sunburn, tame brows, and nourish thirsty skin anywhere on your body. It’s tasteless, odorless, and effortlessly powerful.

Winky Lux Glazed Lips Donut Lip Gloss
Full Size: $15
Shade: Coffee Glaze
Offering shine, a dash of shimmer, and a delicious scent, there's a reason why they call this gloss Glazed Lips Donut. Beyond its lacquer-like finish that never feels sticky, it also provides semisheer pigment and hydration with a coconut- and jojoba-rich formula. It can even be worn as a top coat over your lipstick to add some sheen, instantly transforming the shade.

I think I am most excited to try the Ouai Leave in Conditioner. I have tried their Texturizing Spray recently, which I thought smelt divine, but it didn't actually do much for me. My hair looked and felt about the same as it did before taking a bath in texturizing spray, so I guess we'll see how I get on with this leave in conditioner.

Of course, if you are interested in knowing how any of these products perform, then don't forget to check back! I will be posting little updates, so be sure to Subscribe to my blog so you don't miss out on future posts. :)
