Birchbox Unboxing: March 2013

It's Birchbox time!  You probably already know what Birchbox is, but in case you don't you can learn more here.  Basically, it's a makeup sample subscription service.  Every month, you receive 4-5 deluxe samples of high-end beauty and/or life style products.  I've received quite a few full-sized items, so it definitely pays for itself.  So, here we go...

This month's theme is March Madness.  Now, I'm not a very athletic person, nor am I interested in watch sports.  But, a beauty face-off?  I can do that.  Birchbox will be hosting throw-downs on their Facebook this month.  And they'll have even have prizes!  You should check it out.

Here's what I got this month:

twistband Headband, $19 for 6
I was excited to get this headband.  Last month, I almost ordered one, and I'm so glad I didn't.  I have a couple of hair bands with this same material, and they are the only things that keep my hair in a ponytail.

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator, $34
This scrub contains enzymes and microcrystals that break down the bonds that hold dead skin together and buff your skin.  It's supposed to be as good as a professional microdermabrasion.  It will also diminish the look of fine lines and scars.  I tried it this evening, and you can color me impressed!  Suggestion: use a pea-size amount like the website says.  I used more than that, and it was way too much.  I imagine this would last a long time.

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream, $20
This shaving cream is made in the US and made with eco-friendly ingredients.  This does not foam up like normal shaving cream.  It's a rich emollient lotion that softens your skin and protects against redness and irritation.  And it smells so good, almost like cotton candy!  I have the most sensitive skin on my legs, so I'm very excited to try this.

Madewell for Birchbox Nail Emery Board, $5
This was the extra item in my box, and I think it's very cute.  Worth the $5 price tag?  Not really.  But, cute and useful.

FusionBeauty LipFusion Infatuation Lip Fattener, $29
This is a lip plumping lip gloss that doesn't contain irritants or silicones, so it doesn't give you that tingly feeling that most lip plumping products cause.  It has a refreshing sensation, and it's kind of cooling.  The science behind it?  It's supposed to enhance the natural fatty acids in your lips.  You're supposed to see results in 28 days.

What did you get in your Birchbox this month?
