I really think taking a little break from Birchbox was one of the best things I could have done, because ever since I restarted my subscription my boxes have been pretty fantastic!
I also like reviewing them every other month, instead of every month… so let’s check out what I received in my last couple boxes!
My March Birchbox:
- Wilma Schumann Skin Care Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads – full-size, $26
- FHI Brands Hot Sauce Thermal Heat-Activated Conditioner – full-size, $16
- Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – full-size, $24
- theBalm Stainiac in Beauty Queen – full-size, $17
- treStiQue Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon in Aspen Pine – full-size $26
Out of this box, I had two items that I really loved. First off, I’ve been wanting to try the Amika dry shampoo for a while, so I was really glad that the travel size was included in this box. The dry shampoo works really great and smells fantastic. I think I’ll keep it aside for my next trip since it’s in such a cute little bottle that will easily fit in a carry-on.
I tried out the collagen eye pads and only wish that there were more in the box. I mean, it’s great to get even two to try… but you can’t really tell any different after using a product once. I did feel quite refreshed after trying them though!
My April Birchbox:
- Whish Save Crave Shaving Cream – full-size, $20
- Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask – full-size, $26
- Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream, SPF 40 – full-size, $32
- Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – full-size $34
- The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick in Guava Nice Day – full-size, $14.95
First off, the Rifle Paper box is gorgeous and I need to re-purpose it so that I can look at it every day! I was most excited about trying out the deep conditioning hair mask, but was really disappointed that it didn’t leave my hair soft or conditioned at all. Instead, after I used it my hair seemed kind of dry and stringy – so I’ll be throwing this one right in the trash!
The rest of the box was a hit though. The Vasanti enzymatic face rejuvenator was one of my absolute favorite products I received when I previously did Birchbox (I even bought the full sized product to keep using), so I’m happy to have a travel sized version to add to my collection. I also really loved the color and feel of the PBJ lip color. I’m wearing it here:
I’m still really loving my Birchbox subscription and I’m really glad I gave them another chance!
Do you like my Birchbox reveal posts, or should I retire them? Have you broken up with a subscription box only to return a few months later and love it?

I’m so tempted to try the Amika Dry Shampoo. Did you like it?
I do like it! However, other than scent there isn’t really a big difference between the Amika version and the much cheaper Dove version. 🙂
