March Birchbox

Beauty Subscriptions
Yay! I love coming home to beauty mail, yesterday I got my March Birchbox, looks like some good things in it.  If you are not familiar with Birchbox it’s a  beauty sample subscription service, each month they send you a box of deluxe beauty sample products. 
From birchbox.com
  • Every month, receive a box filled with 4-5 deluxe beauty samples. Choose between yearly and monthly subscription plans, and fill out your Beauty Profile to get products picked especially for you.
  • Pick up full-size versions of your favorite samples in the Birchbox Shop, and discover new favorites. Every purchase earns you BirchboxPoints that can be used toward more full-size product.
  • Dive into our online magazine and videos. We’ve got expert tips, tricks, and tutorials to help you get the most out of your products and stay on top of trends.
  • Earn dollars to spend in the Birchbox Shop with our generous Birchbox Points program. Shop, review products, or refer friends to rack up points.
It’s a nice way to try out new products without investing a lot of money. You can sign up for monthly, 3 months, 6 months or a yearly subscription, and it is only $10 a month with free shipping.  These make great little gifts also, who wouldn’t want a gift that they keep getting every month.
 So here is what I got this month:
Kasmi Tea (retail $15.50 for 20 bags
(2 bags were in my box) 
 (description from their site)
Detox: Delicious blend of mate and green tea flavoured with lemon and lemongrass
Blend of mate and Chinese green tea flavoured with lemon and lemongrass. The combination of the properties of mate and green tea creates a drink that is perfect for detoxifying and reinvigorating the body right throughout the day. We suggest to enjoy this tea during the whole day.
Main flavor: Lemongrass
Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens (retail $10 for 100 sheets, sample I got has 25 sheets)
(description from their site)
Absorb excess oil without disturbing makeup with 100% natural Abaca Leaf fibers, infused with Green Tea.

Being that I have oily skin I have used blotting papers before, but not linen ones.  These are good to have.
 
 Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer (retail $38.50 for 1.7 oz sample is .5fl oz)
(description from their site)
This pampering face cream infuses my complexion with lasting hydration.
I have used some Ahava products before and I fell in love with them. A few years ago my grandparents visited Israel and my grandmother brought me back tons of Ahava lotions, scrubs and bath salts. They are made with minerals from the Dead Sea. 
I am so in love with them they are worth the price.  
Talika Lipocils (retail $42.00 for .35 oz sample is .07 oz)
(description from their site)
A plant extract based gel for the growth of eyelashes. Lipocils guarantees naturally longer and thicker eyelashes in just 28 days !
What lady doesn’t want longer lashes? I am really excited to try this, of course  I will update on how/if it works.


Oscar Blandi Shampoo/Conditioner ( retail $24 for 8.45 oz each sample is 1.7 oz each) picture also shows dry shampoo which was not included in the box)
(description from their site)
Removes build-up
Boosts volume
Moisturizes
Sulfate and Paraben free

I washed my hair tonight with this, I have been using sulfate and paraben free products for a while now and I really like the way my hair feels when I use them. (I am naturally curly) Sulfates are harsh they strip the hair and often leave it dry. They also dull color. I really like this shampoo and conditioner, and let me just say it smells AMAZING, a very fresh clean lemon smell. 
I am very satisfied with this month’s box. All the samples are products I am eager to try. I already know I will be buying the full size of at least the shampoo and conditioner.  If you want to try Birchbox you can sign up here.  Do you already subscribe to Birchbox?  I would love to hear your thoughts on your box, so feel free to post on my facebook page
