What's in the Box: Birchbox Unboxing (#2) International Women's Day Box



Happy April! I have been debating whether or not I wanted to review my March box from Birchbox for most of the month. I honestly haven't had too much time to play with makeup this month. But just as we're beginning April I decided to go ahead and do it and I'll ask if anyone wants me to keep doing them.


So let's start with the March box's theme and packaging. The month's theme is celebrating women for international women's day. Birchbox is a company founded by women so they decided to make this box's goal to be amplifying your features instead of trying to alter them. They call it the taking-the-world kit. 
The actual boxes with this subscription just keep getting better and better if you ask me. This box with it's gold accents was so me, i'm going to use it all the time (yes i use my boxes for storage lol). Inside the box I got 5 beauty samples as usual and my card that tells me the name of all the products, instructions, and their prices for the full size product.




This time I'm going to do products a few at a time to keep this post a little shorter. I will start with the products did not amaze me. The first three products are Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions, the Wilma Schumann Skin Care: Hydrating Collagen Pads and the JUARA Radiance Enzyme Scrub. Curl Keeper was a pretty big sample so I was excited. It was 1 fl. oz and the normal $17.50 sample is 8 fl oz. so it's worth about $2.20. It wasn't extraordinary but it was good product that held my curls and didn't make them crunchy. I wasn't 100% won over after one or two times using it but you never know! The same can be said for the Enzyme Scrub. It didn't really do anything sensational but it was another exfoliate to add to my collection! It did it's job but I don't think I'd pay extra to get this product instead another one. Also it had a very blah smell which is a deal breaker for me when it comes to a face scrub! This one is super expensive, costing $38 for 2.5 fl oz *shocked emojii holding its face like the home alone kid*. So, the .27 fl oz sample I got in my box is worth $4. The Hydrating Collagen pads were also eh. I only received one set so who knows if they made any difference. Below is a picture of what they looked like though. I received one set and a standard set comes with 5 for $18. So they're worth about $3 




Next, is two samples I loved. They were the Cynthia Rowley Beauty: Brightening Illuminator and the trestiQue Color and Smudge Shadow Crayon. I LOVED Brightening Illuminator (aka the highlighter). It came in a small bottle and was a creme but a little went a long way. I'm definitely buying the full size. It gave a gorgeous gold glow and was honestly the best highlighter I've ever used. The full size is .11 fl oz for $28 and in the box I got a .04 fl oz. sample, that makes the sample worth $10. The other sample I loved, the shadow crayon, was great because it was super pigmented. It is really hard for me to use eyeshadow because it never shows up but this crayon is a creme and stays on forever. I also liked the cute packaging that looks like a pencil but when you open it you see its a roll on crayon. I have no one to find the price but a trio of these mini crayons is a little over 30 dollars so I would value it at $10 as well.

All together this was a pretty impressive box that I played with all month and is a $30 value for only $10 so I have no complaints. I also loved this month's theme. I'm definitely curious to hear anyone's opinion on whether I should keep doing these birch box reviews monthly, or maybe just whenever a box makes me go "WOW".

I also have two other "What's in the Box" reviews so keep a look out. :-)

Until next time,
