Birchbox Unboxing! March 2015

Welcome to my first ever solo Birchbox unboxing post!! I'm not quite done with other subscription boxes yet, you'll see next week, but this Birchbox marks my 2 year anniversary of getting Birchbox so it was very appropriate to start the solo reviews now!

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Birchbox it is one of those monthly beauty sample boxes where they send you a box of 5-6 (sometimes even 7 with bonus extras) samples and deluxe samples. Occasionally there will be full size products too! The brands they send are all fairly high-end and they have a point system and customer service staff that just can't be beat. For $10 a month you are able to select a sample from a select group of choices and have more surprises delivered to you based on your beauty profile! Have I convinced you to sign up yet? If so I would love it if you would do it through my referral link here! Feel free to also go to www.birchbox.com if you want to look around without any strings attached to me.

The theme for March 2015 was Creativity and the group of sample choices were all hair care products so I opted out of selecting one. Let's get into the samples I got!
BeeKind Shampoo
Full Size Value: $15 | Sample Size Value: $1.88
I've tried the lotion of this brand before and I was pretty apathetic about it. It's a generous packet of shampoo probably enough for at least 2-3 washes, however I wish it came into a bottle because this will be difficult to store between uses. Not something I'm completely crazy about but it is still something that I will use. With shampoos though I always wish it came in a set with the conditioner that way I could get the full effect of how everything works.
Jelly Pong Pong GLOW GETTER Highlighter
Full Size Value: $14 | Received Full Size!
This is an adorable little gel highlighter that is easily mistaken as a nail polish. It's in the color Ibiza which is a place that I've never been yet still holds a soft spot in my heart. I'm really excited for this because the color is gorgeous and I'm a huge fan of highlighting especially in the summer, it makes the sweat and oil seem more on purpose than it is. Even if the color is too taupey for highlighter it will be a great eyeshadow too.
Nelson J Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Moisture Healing Mask - Coconut
Full Size Value: $20 | Sample Size Value: $2.50
If it's a mask I'll love it! This tube is probably only enough for once use with my hair but I'll still take it. It's not too expensive too so if I like this, it's something I could buy!
Vita Liberata Self Tanning Night Moisture Mask
Full Size Value: $45 | Sample Size Value: $6.71
I'm slightly scared of waking up with an orange face but the idea of this intrigues me and I will still try it! Basically you put it on your face at night and will wake up gorgeously sunkissed with no fear of it transferring on your sheets or pillows. I've heard of this brand but not of this product so I can't wait to test it out. It's a generous sample too so I will be able to know whether or not I'm a fan.
Whish Three Whishes Body Butter - Lavender
Full Size Value: $24 | Sample Size Value: $1.92
I wish I got the Almond scent! I've tried the Whish shaving cream before which enjoyed however it wasn't a product I needed. I'm excited to try the body butter because I've heard great things about it. It's the perfect size for me to sample it without feeling like it is an endless amount of product.

Value of Box: $27.01
Overall I'm pretty excited about this box! It was definitely the right decision to stick with Birchbox because as a subscription box you really can't beat it!
