birchbox brag {March 2013 box}

Last week that little pink box arrived in the mailbox -- yup my March birchbox. I was pleasantly surprised with this box. Last month, I updated my subscription profile since appartently I never filled it out :) and here's the result (no perfume samples finally). Do you subscribe to birchbox? What did you receive this month?

I just realized I forgot to pull the MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick and Makeup Remover out of the bag... oops

In a perfect world, we'd have time to shampoo our strands more than once a week. But for all those occasions when life intervenes, this revitalizing dry shampoo is our secret weapon. The powdery formula revives second-day strands and beyond, absorbing excess oil to provide instant lift.
Inspired by Madewell’s new spring collection, which features sun-ready prints and patterns like this one, the emery board is as practical as it is pretty. The double-sided nail care essential is perfect for daily maintenance and as a quick fix for snags or breaks.

Who doesn’t love a lipstick that delivers intense, long-lasting color—and this smudge-proof formula doesn’t disappoint. Matte hues include timeless classics, like Maraschino Cherry, a rich crimson red; easy neutrals like Putty, a peachy nude; and trend-setting tints like Flamingo, a vivid pink with yellow undertones. The hydrating, antioxidant-rich lipstick does double duty as a lip treatment, and, best of all, MAKE donates one-third of all sales to the brand’s parent non-profit, which supports women-led cooperatives.

This gentle, oil-based formula removes shadow, liner, and mascara without breaking a sweat. Plus, it’s fragrance-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic—which means you don’t have to worry about redness or irritation. 

A good body lotion is hard to find. Too oily, too sticky, too thick—the list goes on and on. Lucky for us, Caldrea has been perfecting its body care line for a decade (yes, a decade!). This nourishing body lotion comes in three signature scents: Aloe Water Apricot, a modern white musk with floral notes; Tea Olive Lime, a green citrus scent with vanilla and orchid; and Coconut Fig Leaf, which is fresh and exotic with top notes of white fig, plum, and coconut.
