March Birchbox Review

My Bitchbox arrived last week and I couldn't contain my excitement...

I started to share a little bit about how I was debating doing either another blog devoted to beauty posts OR just adding these types of post right to this blog. After some of my bloggy friends talked me off the ledge of having two blogs, I decided to just add more things on here. 

So if you like the lifestyle portion of this blog and would prefer to not read beauty posts I'm giving you a heads up that this is beauty related...come back tomorrow and I will be talking food and who doesn't love food.

This card comes each month with the box and breaks down the products.
If you are interested in the full size prices they are listed here.

I just thought it was appropriate to start here.
This chick doesn't eat dark chocolate,
I couldn't not let you guys know how it was soooo
I "forced" Joshua to eat it and he was so upset I made him.
No, but really he said it was delicious!

I was impressed with this sample size and product.
I have a really dry face so I use a moisturizer on it every.single.day.whomp.
I switched to using this as soon as I got it and have LOVED it!
There is no way I am paying $39 though for the full price when this runs out.

Yeah so then I got this bad boy...
I don't even know where to start here. 
It smells, was impossible to get the packaging open (I had to cut it with scissors),
and it did nothing for me. 
Personal opinion only.

It is hard to tell this color from the picture, 
but who the hell cares there are half naked men on the packaging!
I got the color pie and out of all the colors I could have 
recieved this might not have been the best for me, but it was decent on my lips.
You can use it on your cheeks or lips.
The full size is a palette with all 6 colors!

Sigh. I know I promised to never complain about foil packets,
but come on they do kind of suck. 
I can't tell if I like a product from this small of an amount.
I could also pick this packet up myself.
On a positive note it smelled AMAZING! 

This is the same brand as the above product. 
I had never heard of this brand before, but I'm going to assume that 
they sell smells extremely yummy. 
I loved this product as well, but was confused by the term "mask."
When I think of a mask I think like thick and visible when you put it on. 
This is not that way. It is think on your face, but it does smell amazing, hardens as it dries, and wipes off easily!

Rating Scale:
* = It blew
**= It wasn't the worst thing I've ever experienced
***= I liked it more than I hated it
****=It was pretty close to being the bomb dot com
*****= It was like heaven in a box

March: ** 
I am so sad to only give this box 2 stars since I have been happy with my other boxes so far, but I don't like dark chocolate, the foil packet was so little, I couldn't use one of the products due to a weird color for me, and the lip repair was just nasty!

I still love Birchbox, affectionately known as Bitchbox, and I recommend you getting it...use the code below to sign up!




  1. I think I need to do one of these kind of deals. It always seem fun to see what you get.

  2. Sorry to hear you did not like it as much as your previous box! I would love to try the Caudalie product! They are products I would love to try but like you pointed out they are a little too pricey for me!

  3. I'm not into dark chocolate either but with cherry and almonds... that sounds DELICIOUS!

  4. I can't believe you don't like dark chocolate! I dunno if I would like cherry in my chocolate but I loooove dark chocolate.

    And the lip and cream palette looks awesome! Esp with the sweet packaging ha ;-)

  5. bitchbox indeed! sometimes they aren't up to par. i like cherry and chocolate but not sure if i would want dark chocolate with it

  6. hahahah "bitch box". was that intentional? because it made me laugh.

    jurlique is an amazing all natural brand, i love their eye cream!

  7. This box looks disappointing :(

    Cherry chocolate? Yuck.

  8. That stinks you didn't get the best items. I am not a dark chocolate fan either.

  9. i have yet to commit to an kind of box subscription, but i want things in the mail each month!

  10. That moisturizer looks great!
