First look! I have to say I love that they’re changing up the boxes every month because the designs are gorgeous!

It’s A 10 Hair Miracle Leave-In Product Plus Keratin (59.1 ml/2 fl oz, $9.50) – This was my PYS for March! I originally got this in my January box and loved it so much that I had to get it again. 🙂 (remember, Birchbox won’t sent you a sample you had previously received, so PYS is really the only way to ensure that you get something twice if you really love it – that or you can start a new account and hope that you get it haha).

Fekkai PrX Reparatives Shampoo (59 ml/2 fl oz, $5) – This is exactly a quarter of the full size so you can really give it a try to see if it works well with your hair type! I love, love, love the scent – it’s the same as the Fekkai PrX Reparatives Intense Fortifying Mask that I received in my July 2014 Sample Society box. It’s that same warm vanilla that just makes you sigh in happiness. I had actually wanted to buy this (until I was introduced to the amazing magic of Fortune Cookie Soap shampoo bars) so this is wonderful! I can’t want to try it out and make my hair smell like perfection.

Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Face & Body Balm (25 ml/0.84 fl oz, $4.83) – Oh man this also smells amazing! I can’t really describe it with actual ingredients. But it’s woodsy and it slightly reminds me of tea tree and bamboo. The formula is lightweight and absorbs quickly! I really actually love this. There aren’t a lot of lotions/hand creams that I’ll enjoy as much as the awesome scents of Tocca or Fortune Cookie Soap but this is really, really nice. (too bad the full size is $29 and currently out of stock on birchbox or else I would have totally bought this…)

One of my favorites!

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré 24-Hour Miracle Cream (5 ml/0.17 fl oz, $1.87) – This is my favorite moisturizer ever! I don’t think I can say enough good things about this because the scent, formula, and absorption of this product are all top-notch. I have the full size and several of these sample sizes because this is honestly the best. The coolest thing is that it is not only a moisturizer, as it can be used as a primer for makeup or even as a makeup remover! I highly recommend this if you’re looking around to try a new moisturizer.

Jelly Pong Pong GLOW GETTER Highlighter (4 ml/0.14 fl oz – Full size!, $12.75) – I had no idea this was full size! It’s so small, haha. But it’s adorable. 🙂 When I first opened my box I actually thought this was a nail polish mini! I’m not sure if this is what I want in a highlighter but I’ll give it a try to see how it works with my skin tone. It looks super glittery. XD But hopefully it’s more subtle on skin than it is in the bottle.

My March 2015 Birchbox!

Overall value: $33.95

Overall enjoyment: Birchbox knocked it out of the park again this month! I’ve been getting 5 item boxes recently but every single item has either been amazing or high value! I’m really enjoying the samples they’ve been sending out and I hope this trend keeps up. 😀 Plus, the boxes are beautiful or really fun so I’m always looking forward to seeing what new design they come up with!
