March Box Review: Teen Vogue Edition

I have been a Birchbox member for over a year now, and I absolutely love it! I love trying out new products, and with Birchbox, I get to have beauty products delivered to my door, and try out products that I might have never come across or thought to try on my own. Each month that I receive my Birchbox, it is like opening a special beauty present! Every month, I discover a new favorite beauty product.

This month, Birchbox members had the option to receive either the Teen Vogue Edition Birchbox, or the regular monthly Birchbox. Of course, I had to go with the Teen Vogue Edition Birchbox!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is Birchbox? 

Birchbox delivers the best products and the best insider secrets! Every month, Birchbox members receive a select box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch!

Each month, for $10 a month, Birchbox members receive a selection of 4-5 samples. Birchbox members receive anything from skincare to makeup, to cult beauty tools from well-known brands, as well as emerging gems!

The magazine is designed to help you get the most out of your samples. The magazine is there to be a source of inspiration, advice, and information and will show you how to rock the latest trends, master techniques, and upgrade your daily routine with articles, expert interviews, and videos!

When you are certain you love the samples you've tried, you can purchase full-size versions directly from Birchbox's shop. Every purchase earns you Birchbox Points you can use toward more beauty products! Referring friends and filling out quick product feedback surveys, which take only 30 seconds, gets you points too! Each 100 reward points can be redeemed for $10.00! Each $1.00 spent will earn 1 reward point! Exciting, right?

Co-founders Hayley Barna and Katia created Birchbox to help women cut through the clutter of the beauty world to find products that really work for them.

Birchbox has recently been featured by InStyle, New York Post and Marie Claire, among others!

MY MARCH BOX: TEEN VOGUE EDITION


 
Annick Goutal Petite Cherie: This feminine and youthful scent smells great on women of all ages. A dominant top note of fresh, ripe pear gives way to a chorus of ripe peach, rich vanilla, and green grass. Beneath it all, a base note of musky rose lingers for hours. 

My thoughts: I will admit, I am picky when it comes to perfume. However, I actually like this one! It has quite a nice scent. I would agree that it has a feminine and youthful scent. I can definitely smell the pear, which I do like, and a hint of vanilla. Would I purchase this perfume? Maybe! 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kérastase Elixir Ultime: A hair care all-star, this elixir nourishes our locks with a blend of antioxidant-rich camellia, argan, maize, and pracaxi oils. The pump dispenser allows for mess-proof applications, and we love how the weightless formula isn’t sticky. 

My thoughts: My hair tends to be more on the dry side. This multi-usage beautifying oil leaves my hair feeling and looking nourished. This beauty oil tames my frizz without making it oily. It is weightless, sticky free, and mess-proof! Would I purchase this elixir? Maybe!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Twistband 12-pack: Each Twistband is made of high-quality elastic that keeps braids, buns, and ponytails secured. Because they’re thicker than regular hair ties, they don’t leave crimps in hair.
  
My thoughts: Okay, so these are the best hair ties that I could possibly ask for—one of my favorite products in this month's Birchbox! I absolutely love these. Yes, they know how to keep a bun in place. But, that is not the main reason why I am crazy about them. I tend to get headaches when wearing my hair up, in any way. With these twistbands, I am headache-free! Would I purchase these elastics? Yes!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fresh Sheer Berry Rose Sugar Rosé Lip Treatment: This treatment immediately hydrates lips while providing a smooth coat of tinted, buildable color. The formula is free of petroleum, parabens, phthalates, synthetic dyes, and sulfates. Broad-spectrum SPF 15 offers superior protection from the sun, while sugar seals in moisture. The screw top on this product makes it mega travel-friendly, too.

My thoughts: Meet another one of my favorite beauty products in this month's Birchbox! This lip treatment is beyond hydrating, and leaves a beautiful tint of color on my lips. I love that it has SPF 15—we all know how important that is. Would I purchase this lip treatment? Yes!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Essie Luxeffects Nail Polish in "A Cut Above": Kick your paws up a notch with these super sparkly polishes. From blingy silver to gilded gold, Essie uses a DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde-free formula to produce textured polishes in an array of luxe glazes.

My thoughts: I received this nail polish as a full sized product. I think this it is great quality. I love Essie as a brand on its own. I am not so sure that I would paint all of my nails with this particular polish—maybe just a nail or two, as I am not one for loud nails. Would I purchase this nail polish? Maybe!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I received a coupon code (MODPROM) for $10 off any $75+ order at modcloth.com. - valid 3/1 - 4/15!

  2. Hello! I saw your link on elleandblair.com and thought I would stop by and share some new blogger love! Personally, I have been debating for a while now whether or not to sign up for any of the beauty boxes because in many of them every person gets a different variety and many people say some months are a hit or miss whether you get the products you are hoping for or not, but I may just try one of the specialty boxes like this where you are guaranteed certain products.

    1. Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I would say that some, and only some, months are a miss; however, every month there is at least one beauty product I end up falling in love with. With Birchbox, I receive a lot of skin care products, which I personally enjoy.
