ApotheCARE Essentials The Booster Shampoo and Conditioner
Full Size Price: $13.00 each
Sample size value is approximately: $3.25 each
This is a paraben and silicone free shampoo and conditioner set that is infused with rosehip oil, geranium, and aloe vera. The shampoo claims to cleanse while boosting body and thickness. While the conditioner claims to add volume and add a protective coating that leads to thicker looking strands. The scent of both products is on the floral side with a bit of musk, the scent does linger in the hair a bit after use. I found that they both lathered well and seemed to cleanse and moisturize nicely. I do like the use of natural ingredients but the scent itself is not one that suits my preference. I would consider purchasing this brand in another scent if available.

Winky Lux Glazed Lips Donut Lip Gloss in shade "Sugar Glaze"
Full Size Price: $15.00
Sample size value is approximately: $1.57
This is a lipgloss inspired by donut frosting, it is a pearl shimmery gloss that can be worn alone or on top of a lip color for a multidimensional look. This gloss has a nice sweet scent with a hint of vanilla and something a bit tropical like. When applied on the skin for a swatch you can see all the beautiful blue and pink undertones to it. I decided to try it on top of my nude lipstick and felt it just gave it a glossy look. I would like to see how this works on a darker lipstick but overall do enjoy the product since it's so unique. I would consider purchasing the full size.

M-A-C Cosmetics Cleanse Off Oil
Full Size Price: $12 - $32
Sample size value is approximately: $
This is an oil cleanser that claims to be able to remove even the most stubborn makeup with a gentle botanical base. It is made with olive fruit, evening primrose, and jojoba seed. To use, you simply massage onto dry skin and then rinse off. The scent is on the slightly citrus side but it is light. The formula isn't greasy but I do wish it came with an applicator or dropper to better dispense and control the amount of product used, I do believe the full size product comes with a pump. I did find it removed my makeup with ease and did not irritate my skin at all. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Laura Geller New York LashBOSS Mascara
Full Size Price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $8.00
This is a collagen and peptide infused mascara that has a dual bristle brush. To get the full effect from this mascara it is recommend to use the long bristles to lengthen and the short ones to add volume and curl. I found this formula to be a bit dry but it applied quite nicely and I achieved my desired look in just two coats. I did find that it gave a good amount of length to my lashes. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

My March Birchbox is valued at $17.67.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription so I received an additional value of $7.67.

Overall, I felt kind of let down by this month's box. It seemed like getting the set of shampoo and conditioner and them counting them as two separate products was a cheap way of getting my five products this month. I also am over getting so many haircare products that I don't end up liking or fully using. I hope to see a change in my subscription soon or I may consider canceling. My favorite product from this month's box was the mascara.
