March 2013 Birchbox Review

Once again, this review is extremely late this month. Oops! I actually didn't get to go to my house and pick it up til like a week later, and then I opened it and forgot it at home before I got to try out or take pics of anything....but now I finally have my box and have sampled the products a bit and took pictures! Let's begin!
One of the most interesting things in my box this month was the Sumita Color Intense Pencil. It's in the most beautiful blue shade. I tried wearing it on my waterline and it didn't want to stay sort of traveled down into my lower lashes. It doesn't seem pointy enough to do a thin line above my upper lashes. I am also a little worried that the color won't look good on me, since my eyes are definitely on the grayer side of blue.. I am going to keep experimenting with this pencil though. This is exactly what I love about birchbox--getting to try something that I would never have bought on my own. Also, they sent everyone these little Madewell nail files with the most adorable floral print ever.
I was particularly excited about both of these products: the Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvinator and the Whish Shave Crave Shave Cream. So far I really like the face stuff. I'm a bit disappointed with the shave cream, however. It works great, but its pretty expensive and the blueberry smell is STRONG. It doesn't smell like real blueberries either--it smells kind of like a blueberry lollipop with a hint of a chemical smell. I've decided it's not awful, but I'd rather have something a little less powerful. Also, the tube made me think it was a pretty big sample size, but I actually only got 2 shaves out of it.
Last but not least are the two Miss Jessie's products. The Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo was definitely not for me. It had such a thick, sticky texture that, even though I used more than half of the packet, I could not manage to spread throughout my entire hair. It seriously took some work. I could definitely not handle that frustration early in the morning. The conditioner was much easier to manage, but it was personally too light for me. I have very dry hair and it needs all the hydration it can get. I think it would be a great product for someone who has thin hair or is just worried about weighing their hair down.

All in all I got a pretty good box this month with some very interesting samples. I was excited to try everything in my box, even though some of them were just not for me.
