Price: $15/month | 6 Month Commitment $14/month | 12 Month Commitment $13/month
So I did a thing, I resubscribed to Birchbox. I actually resubscribed a few months ago, however, I just haven’t had the time to get the boxes photographed to post an unboxing. However, the March Birchbox came a week into March so I had PLENTY of time. So let’s jump into my March Birchbox Unboxing
Birchbox is a beauty subscription that sends mostly trial sized beauty products but sometimes full-size products are included as well. Products sampled tend to usually be high end, whether that be indie or non-indie, but there can sometimes be drugstore products as well. Subscriptions use to be $10 month with the 6-month and 12-month subscriptions having to be paid in advance. Subscription prices have now gone up to $15/month for month-to-month subscriptions, 6-month subscriptions are $14/month charged monthly but you agree to getting 6 boxes, 12-month subscriptions are $13/month and are handled the same way as the 6-month subscriptions. Full-size products can be purchased via the Birchbox store and purchasing products, reviewing sample boxes, and referring friends earns you points which can be redeemed for money off in the Birchbox store. Lastly, monthly boxes can be done completely random, you can choose one product from a few choices and the rest of the box can be random, you can choose a curated box in which all the items are known at the time of choosing, you can choose a full-size product that is being offered for the month (i.e. in January you could choose a ColourPop Highlighter Palette as the full-size item), or you can get the cost of your box as points in the store (i.e. $13 if you’re doing 12-months).
Alterna Leave-In Conditioner
The first product in my March Birchbox is the Alterna Anti-Aging Priming Leave-In Conditioner. This is supposed to be a detangling leave-in conditioner that also moisturizes and adds shine.
The next product in my March Birchbox is the Benefit POREfessional Hydrate Primer. This is supposed to be a hydrating version of Benefit’s cult favorite, POREfessional Primer.
The next product in my March Birchbox is the Floss My New Favorite Lip Gloss in the shade YUL. This is supposed to be a non-glittery and non-sticky clear gloss. This is also supposed to be hydrating and long-lasting.
Wander Beauty Cheek
The next product in my March Birchbox is the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek in Rendezvous. This is supposed to be a cream lip and cheek product that moisturizes.
Wilma Schumann Eye Pads
The last product in my March Birch is the Wilman Shumann Skin Care Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads. These are supposed to be under eye patches that hydrate, depuff, and plump the under eye area.

Final Thoughts on the March Birchbox Unboxing
I’m actually super excited to try out the Alterna Leave-In Conditioner and the Benefit Hydrating Primer. The Benefit Primer is something I’ve wanted to try since it came out, however, I’ve heard mixed reviews so I haven’t wanted to spend money on it. Moving on, I’m more “meh” about the Floss Gloss (ha!) and the Wilma Schumann Eye Pads. I’m more meh on these because I’m not a huge gloss fan and I’ve already got enough eye pads that I’m not sure that I need a new brand thrown in. Lastly, I have ZERO interest in the Wander Beauty product because Wander Beauty just does not work for me.

This looks like a pretty good box to me, but i love lip gloss and eye patches!
I would be most excited about the Wander blush/lip. The shade is gorgeous. I have been delighted by the Wander eye palettes I’ve received in my Ipsy Plus bags. Even the mascara was decent. I got the Wilma Schumann eye gels in a Sephora Play bag a couple of years ago, and I liked them. Enjoy your goodies!
Do you want the Wander Beauty cream blush/lip product? I haven’t opened it and it has a piece of tape over it showing that it’s still sealed. I was going to list it on My Subscription Addiction’s swap site but if you think you’d enjoy it I’ll send it to you. If you do just PM me your address on Facebook and I’ll send it to you once we’re no longer on a shelter-in-place in the San Francisco area.
Cassie, that is so generous of you! I adore cream blush, so I really would love it. I will pay you for the shipping. I have a feeling that you may be in shelter-in-place for a while (though we’re doing here in MA even though it hasn’t been mandated yet) – so I hope you don’t mind hanging on to it for a while. xoxo
Yay! I’m glad it’ll be going to a good home. I just don’t get on with Wander Beauty products. I’ve tried their eye patches and mascara and neither worked well for me.
Thanks again, Cassie <3
That eye mask is a great one so I think you should try it. Even if you have a lot it’s nice to have a change of pace. I think the Wander looks great. Those are the two things I like best in the box. As pretty as the gloss is, it looks sticky.
I was thinking it looks sticky as well! I plan on trying it here shortly and will be doing a review of the box here shortly.
I love a good leave in conditioner!
