In my March birchbox, there was less makeup and face masks and more of overall beauty (I have to admit, this disappointed me). 

My box came in this packaging, and I have to admit I was underwhelmed. It didn't have the drawer feature of the other boxes I've received and it's quite plain, I'm not a fan and this will be going in the recycling. 

The first gift I got was this amika: Style Shield Style Extending Spray which retails for £20. I received an amika: hair mask last month (which I used once) and really liked it, and I am excited to use this product, although I have to admit I don't know what it is. 

The next product is this Santorini Vine Showergel, which is £8. I feel two ways about this product; on the one hand I'm really excited to use this as it's from Santorini and I'd love to go there one day, but on the other hand I feel that Birchbox is about delivering high-end beauty products to you, and I can easily pop into Marks and Spencer's and get one of these, so on that note I am underwhelmed. 

The next thing I received is these tiny Bobbi Brown face masks  (£20). One is deep cleansing, one is rejuvenating and the last one is nourishing for the skin. I am also not too overwhelmed by these as they are tiny, however I am willing to give them a go before I pass any major judgement. 

Finally, I got this Benefit Double the Lip in my Birchbox and this is the product that excites me the most. This product has a lipliner at the end of the lipstick, which glides onto your lips as you're applying your lipstick. I looooove wearing lipliner, however I always struggle with it and I never wear it, but this makes it effortlessly simple! This has a retail value of £16.50.

All  in all, my Birchbox was a mixed bag, and I don't think it has been as good as my other Birchboxes. I was so excited to open this, however it left me disappointed and I only really loved one product. I am hoping next month's box is better than this months. 

Thank you for reading, and as always, leave a comment!
