Today I received My March Birchbox in the mail and let me tell you I was happy,happy, happy with the contents of my little surprise box for this month. I am sure most of you are familiar with Birchbox , but for those like me who arrived late to the subscription box craze it is a monthly subscription box that contains deluxe sized Skin care, makeup, perfume, grooming and lifestyle samples (usually 4-5 delux sized samples and occasionally a fu  ll sized product or two) This is the best way I have found to try so many different skin care, hair care and makeup samples (the samples are usually large enough to last me at least a month so I really get a chance to "try" the product and but it if I like it) Birchbox also has it's own store where you can purchase many of the items shipped to you at discounted prices as well which is nice for me since I am unable to go out and shop and as hard as the Yankee tries he just has a hard time picking up my beauty items (even when I am very specific) on the items I want

As usual Birchbox arrived in the signature pink shipping box and inside was the box with the company emblem,  then inside lots of pretty pink packing materials.
 Inside there is the info card for this box (you will learn to LOVE these cards.)..I actually save mine and mark what company, date of the box and use my own coding system to decide if I would pick these products  to purchase in the future>

Now on to the goodies in the box.......

 First up is Juice Beauty , Stem Cellular repair CC cream (read: color control) this is the ultimate multitasking lightweight cream naturally improves skin tone with Vitamin C and grape-derived resveratrol Full Size value is $39

Nick Chavez Beverly Hills, color saver sulfate free shampoo-this Hollywood stylist shampoo devised this sulphate free shampoo to enhance the vibrancy of your hue.It is Loaded with yummy apple and lemon extracts that boost volume (just gotta say it was a VERY nice size to receive and will last a couple of weeks.)I have been wanting to try a few different shampoo as I am no longer happy with mine.(full size shampoo $22)

Stella Cadente, Miss Me Discrete? Eau de toilette . This chic, Parisian perfumes made with rose and orange blossom notes  Full size is $49-59

Vasanti... Brighten Up!!!! Enzyme=atic Face Rejuvenator. This exfoliating cleanser uses professional grade (read effective) microderm crystals and papaya enzymes to brighten dull skin Full Size $34

The final item in the box was a "beauty extra" .... Madewell for Birchbox Emery says we teamed up with Madewell to create this adorable mani savior, Patterned after a print from their new spring collection. Full Size $5.00

OK so all togather the totals for full price items in this box value at $149-$169 (because the perfume has two different sizes and two different prices. Yes, all received was not full size, but they are larger than sample size. I usually figure the value at about 1/4 cost of the full size for this large of samples so this box values at $37.25 -$42.25 so this is an awesome deal even with the full price of this box being $10.00 a month
