I recently switched from Ipsy to Birchbox, and I couldn't be happier. I feel like I am getting a better deal paying $10 for the Birchbox subscription rather than the Ipsy subscription. It's more customized, and I'm getting samples from more higher end brands. Personally, February was better than March, but I still liked March a lot.
Just like with an Ipsy subscription, you get an assortment of makeup, skincare and hair care products. I usually tend to prefer makeup and hair care over skin care, because I don't like switching up what I do with my skin too often.
This Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle was probably one of my favorites products from this box. It made my hair smell good, and soft and shiny, and definitely helped to detangle. Would definitely consider repurchasing the full size of this.
The COOLA Classic SPF Cucumber Moisturizer excited me when I saw it, because I thought it would nice and cooling in the morning to wake me up, but it doesn't do anything differently from my normal Cetaphil moisturizer. I'll use it up since it doesn't do anything differently, but I won't repurchase the full size.
The theBalm Cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen is different from any other lip product I've tried. I like the concept, when I use it it leaves a nice your lips but better lip color, and when you put lipstick on the top, the lipstick fades into a nice color. I'll use this for light makeup days, but I don't know if I love it enough to repurchase, if I ever somehow use it up.
I was very excited about this little sample from the Cargo Land Down Under Eye Shadow Palette when I saw it because I love colors like this. However, even though I have not shown swatches, the lighter shimmery bronzy color was kind of a disappointment. It swatched patchy and powdery, and the other darker bronze color with hints of olive in it just wasn't anything different than what I usually had. I might use this with a base to intensify the lighter bronze, but not impressed.
I personally didn't try this scent, I'm very wary of perfume samples, so I don't have much else to say, except I don't typically use perfume samples.
Not my favorite box, but still nice nonetheless. I will leave a link for Birchbox down below, you all should definitely sign up! If you want a more in depth review and information post about Birchbox, let me know and I'll tell you all about what it has to offer!
