Birchbox – March 2016 Review

The March Birchbox has landed really early this month with the courier catching me completely by surprise when his van pulled up outside my front door.

This month’s theme is Word Up! and Birchbox have promised to take subscribers on the ultimate journey of discovery to uncover your beauty must-haves. So what’s inside my box this month?

First up is the first of the two makeup items Birchbox has promised subscribers. The ModelCo® More Brows in Medium to Dark (RRP £13) is a fibre-gel brow enhancer, much like Benefit’s Gimme Brow, which helps to thicken and reshape unruly brows. I already use Gimme Brow quite regularly so I’m looking forward to seeing how the ModelCo version compares.

Second we have ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm (RRP £11). ARROW BOOST is a paraben free, vegan brand created especially Birchbox (we sampled another of Birchbox’s own-brands LOC in last month’s box) and this lip balm, which appears upon first glance to be clear, actually changes colour according to the pH of your skin making it a pretty unique product and one that I can’t wait for try.

Next up is a product I’ve already tried and like. The Indeed Labs Hydraluron™ moisture boosting mask (RRP £19.99 ×4 masks) is an incredible moisture boosting sheet mask that features Hyaluronic Acid.

Moving on is a 25ml sample of Polaar Polar Night Cream (RRP £32, 100ml) which claims to react to the light of the moon and work whilst you sleep, promoting cell regeneration and leaving skin looking well rested and glowing.

My fifth item is a 20ml sachet of amika Nourishing Mask (RRP £19.99, 250ml), a highly nourishing hair treatment that softens, hydrates and smoothes split ends with the aid of Sea Buckthorn and Jojoba Oil. I’ll probably keep this to use during the summer when the sun and heat threatens to frazzle my hair!

The final item in my box this month is a 14ml sample of Regenerate Enamel Science™ Advanced Toothpaste (RRP £10, 75ml). I’m not overly excited by a toothpaste, and having seen a lot of other boxes containing a full size Lanolips Hand Cream I’m a little disappointed to receive this instead. It’ll come in handy for travel however.

I’m really pleased with the majority of my box, especially the makeup items which are definitely products I will use, although the toothpaste is a little bit of a let down. Nevertheless it’s still a varied line-up of products and for £12.95 is fantastic value.

If you fancy your very own Birchbox you can subscribe for £12.95 per month and by using my referral link you also get 50 points (worth £5) to spend in the Birchbox shop as a thank you. As another bonus use the code SH0316BB50 to get £5 off your first box!

If you’re already a subscriber I’d love to hear what you got in your March box so do leave a comment below!

    You’re box looks a lot better than the one I got. I got the arrow lip balm, the hair conditioner sachet, mini eyebrow tube, some small hand cream tube, a tiny sample of face serum and a cheap hair band. Thinking of unsubscribing. Big box containing not that much. The lip balm is the best thing.
