March Birchbox – unboxed!

I’m not gonna lie – I cheated and peeked on the contents of my Birchbox before I received it and was not really bursting at the seams with excitement for anything.

I did love the Stila lip glaze, because there’s never anything wrong with that. The color I received was Sparkling Grape, and these glosses are sticky, sheerly colored and stay on well.  This shade is a pretty pale lavender.

I also received the DKNY Be Delicious Skin sample.  It’s a cool concept, it’s just not my favorite fragrance (and, or course, I’m ridiculously scent-sensitive, so there is that).  The deal is that this fragrance will not only leave your skin scented, but hydrated and soft as well – love that!

Followed by the Jergens BB Body Cream – which is, just as it says, a BB cream for your body.  Whaaa?  I’m starting to be a hair burnt out on the whole BB trend, but I do love extra sunscreen in lotion.

Next up the Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum.  Again, any excuse for more sunscreen to layer into my skincare routine, but I’ve gotten sunscreen-adjacent products in my last four boxes.  Come on, guys!

Now my last item was this Air Repair Rescue Balm, and I adore it.  It reminds me a bit of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, which I used to love when I worked for the brand.  I wish this had been a bigger sample!

The one thing I will say for this and every Birchbox is that they are generous with the samples, and I never get tired of the packaging and the surprise.  Just some months are better than others… whomp whomp. 🙂  I’ll just continue riding the wave of my color-changing nail polish from last month.

Eyes peeled for the Ipsy unbagging, which is coming up – and I’ll leave you with a pic of one of my gorgeous brides from last weekend and her fabulous sister.  I loved this group!
