March 2015 Birchbox

It's the middle of the month, which means it time for my Birchbox to arrive! Unlike last month, I was completely in the dark as to what might be coming in March's box. I wasn't a huge fan of any of the sample choice options and wasn't blown away by the curated box they offered, so it was truly a surprise. 

Every month of Birchbox has a theme. This month's was "Creativity." While that was certainly clear from the packaging (it was beautiful!), I wasn't feeling much in terms of creativity from the box's contents.

In this month's box...
amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
Cover FX BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment
Harvey Prince Sincerely Perfume
Mirenesse Flossy Kiss - Cheeky Kiss Lip Crayon
Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo and Reconstructing Masque

This is definitely not my favorite Birchbox. My two least favorite items to receive are hair products and perfume...and those comprised 60% of my box! I do like the way Harvey Prince products smell typically, though, so I may wear this a few times. I've heard good things online about the blowout spray, but I don't typically like using much product in my hair. It walks a fine line between normal and oily, so it seems that virtually any product makes it cross over into oily territory. I'm totally thrown off by the anti-blemish treatment...I have normal skin and don't have acne/blemishes listed as a concern in my Birchbox profile, so this one is unlikely to get much use. The lip crayon looks like a good color, though, so I'm excited about that.

Oh, well...crossing my fingers for a better April Birchbox! It is my birthday month, after all :)

How was March for everyone else? What products did you get in your Birchbox?
