Birchbox UK – March 2017

Birchbox UK March 2017 unboxing

Another month swings by and it’s already the arrival of Birchbox UK March 2017!  I couldn’t help but reflect back on last year’s box, as something told me it was a good one.  So I re-watched my video, and it was! I had received 3 full size products this time last year!

That hadn’t happened before and it hasn’t happened since.  I was a bit excited to open this month’s box and my expectations were running high, to say the least.

Birchbox UK March 2017 Unboxing

The only title of a theme I can find is ‘celebrating the original Birchbox!’, which isn’t exactly clear.  Apparently this simple box design is how Birchbox used to look back when  starting out as a kraft box, over 6 years ago!

However, there is a hint of a postage design on the leaflet and the outer protective packaging. This is down to a competition running this month to win a trip to Paris, where the first Birchbox store is opening in Europe!  (Hopefully that’ll explain my ‘To Paris, with love’ scribble!)

Quite exciting, but more on that later.

Samples

Birchbox UK March 2017 samples

Below are my 5 personalised samples I received this month!  These are all clickable if you’re after more details on the product:

Benefit They’re Real! Double the Lip
Balance Me Instant Lift Primer
Batiste 2-in-1 Invisible Dry Shampoo & Conditioner
Rituals Sakura Foaming Shower Gel
Caudalie Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum

I knew I’d be receiving the Benefit They’re Real! Double the Lip from last month, but I was hoping it would be full size.  Nevertheless, I think this will last a little while and the colour is great.

I know I’ll definitely use all of the remaining samples, however I can’t help but feel a bit disappointed in this month’s box.  Again, I’ve seen other subscribers receiving some Bobbi Brown samples that were released in this month’s box.  Meaning this is the second time I’ve missed out on Bobbi Brown in Birchbox!

Competition

As I mentioned, there’s a competition that’s a pretty big deal this month and even I’ve entered!  Teaming up with Destinology.co.uk, Birchbox are offering subscribers a 3 night trip to Paris with a friend.

The usual competition entry applies; take a picture of this month’s box, make sure you’re following @BirchboxUK and @Destinology on Instagram and hashtag #BirchboxUK or #BirchboxIRE in the caption.

Conclusion

Like I’ve said, I feel annoyed I missed out on Bobbi Brown samples ahh-gain…  However, there is one product I was pleased to receive in Birchbox UK March 2017 and that’s the Benefit They’re Real! Double the Lip (worn above)!  Despite it not being a full size item as I hoped, I really do quite like the colour.

That brings me to the fact a full size sample is noticeably missed this month, perhaps it wasn’t a good idea to look over my box from last year! So sadly the full size roll this year, from January onto February, has ended.

I’m yet to receive any news or reveals on what’s to come in April’s box, so until then it remains a mystery. But bloody hell, please let me have something from Bobbi Brown at one point please!
