Subscrition Box - March's Boxes, part 1

I am linking up to share from BirchBox! (I will have Part 2 later today...when I've gotten my Julep boxes that came while I was gone this weekend.)

* MAKE - Eyeshadow:  Satin Finish in Granite (I think other got different colors or the matte instead of satin?)
* MAKE -  Face Primer w/SPF 30
* Caldrea Body Lotion - 3 samples:  Tea Olive Lime, Aloe Water Apricot, and Coconut Fig.
* Nick Chaves Beverly Hills - Color Saver Sulfate-Free Shampoo
* Nick Chaves Beverly Hills - Color Saver Paraben Free Conditioner
* Madewell for Birchbox - Emery Board

My hair is currently in need of a new color job. So until then, my Color Saver Shampoo and Conditioner will have to wait to be tested.

I love the MAKE products. The eyeshadow I got was a little dark for daytime, but is great for a night out. And the Face Primer with SPF 30 is pretty amazing, so far! I think it may be my favorite product I've gotten, next to last month's BB cream. I like that it has a higher SPF than what I normally use. And I love that it doesn't go on or feel oily after applying. I've never used a primer before because I use a lotion that has SPF. But I'd be willing to switch to this product.

The Caldrea Lotion is pretty nice. I finally used one the other day - the Coconut Fig. It wasn't overpowering in coconut scent. But the scent lingered for quite some time, which was nice. It has a clean scent to it, almost. And a little bit goes quite the distance with this stuff.

And, surprisingly enough, I haven't used the emery board yet either. I have so many all over the house and in every bag I carry that I haven't needed a new one yet. So I've put it in my desk drawer for now until I need it.

Overall, I really loved everything I got this month. I can't wait to try out the shampoo and conditioner, so I may be making a color appointment with my girl P sometime in the near future. I was also kind of relieved to NOT have a perfume. Don't get me wrong, I love the smell good stuff. But if there is one in almost every box that is sent out, I can see why people get annoyed with it. Besides, I have set scents I stick to and I prefer to keep it that way, for now. But I do enjoy a good smelling lotion as an alternate.

If you're interested in checking out what Birch Box is all about, use this link:  Birchbox. It's only $10 a month and you get some pretty great stuff.

Until next time...


  1. I'm jealous of your MAKE products. That eyeshadow looks gorgeous and I really wanted to try the primer. Oh well, maybe next time!
