My March Birchbox sat at the Dallas Post Office for 5 whole days before they decided to actually deliver it to my mailbox. Color me annoyed. So, I cheated and looked online at what was in my box. I was pretty disappointed. Let's take a look.
Caldrea - Body Lotion
Description: Elegant body lotions, which come in three ethereal scents: Tea Olive Lime, Aloe Water Apricot, Coconut Fig
My Review: I don't really have a review. This is heavily scented body lotion and I'm allergic to fragrance. Birchbox is aware of this allergy.
Dermablend Professional - Smooth Indulgence Concealer
Description: This velvety concealer masks flaws without triggering breakouts. Plus, it's smudge-proof and lasts up to 16 hours.
My Review: I received a really nice sample size of this product. It's hard for me to say if I really liked it or not. The shade I received was way too dark for my skin, so I couldn't really even use it. I did put it on the back of my hand while I got ready for work, just to see how well it would stay. It definitely didn't smudge or run.
Stella Cadente - Miss me Descrete? Eau de Toilette
Description: This chic Parisian perfume is made with rose and orange blossom notes.
My Review: The scent is very, very sweet. I did not care for it at all.
WEI - Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask
Description: A velvety soft mask with China clay to purge dirt and oil from pores, plus golden root to lessen signs of premature aging.
My Review: This actually made my skin nice and soft. It's definitely a product I would like to use once a month or so. I just can't get over the price.
Whish - Shave Crave Shaving Cream
Description: The organic shea butter in this foam free shaving cream makes for an insanely close shave and leaves skin incredibly soft.
My Review: I don't have a review on this, either. It is heavily scented (blueberry).
Madewell for Birchbox - Emery Board
My Review: I always need an extra emery board. I threw it in my purse for on the go nail touch-ups.
I really like the idea of Birchbox. Really, I do. However, with my allergies I'm beginning to think it's just not a something that's feasible for me. I can't really expect Birchbox to go through each product and not send me something scented because of an allergy. I've decided to give Birchbox one more month. I'm hoping I get more make-up samples and less scented products.
