exclusive emery board that was a collaboration between Madewell and Birchbox. I adore the floral design to it and that it came in a plastic sleeve to make it easier to throw in my purse to take with me. I am very happy with this one.
I have actually already tried and love this Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse. I got it last month in my Sample Society box. It does not make my hair crunchy or greasy in anyway. It gives my hair bounce and volume. I have never had a mousse that I actually liked, but this one has completely changed that. I am glad I have another sample size of this so that I won't run out as fast now.
I received the Whish shave cream in Blueberry. I had seen this in Birchbox's youtube video that had the sneak peaks for March's box and was hoping I would get it. I love Blueberries and this has such a lovely non-chemical blueberry scent. I can't wait to use this in the shower to see how it performs, but I do have high hopes for this one.
I really love the philosophy behind Make: One third of every sale WeSeeBeauty.com is donated to the New York-based nonprofit We See Beauty Foundation. Creating a more beautiful world through high-quality products is icing on the cake for the brand whose overarching goal is to empower local economies, elevate women, strengthen communities, and provide a platform for artists. I love purchasing from companies with a mission to help our communities.
I got two Make products. The first is their face primer. This has SPF 30 which is a humongous plus for me. I usually just use moisturizer in the morning, but adding this on top will protect my skin. This will work especially nicely with my Origins Vitazing tinted moisturizer to ensure that I have full sun coverage.
The other Make product I got is the satin finish eyeshadow in Santa Fe. With a primer this goes on pretty bright, but with no primer it's a soft orange shade that's perfect all over the lid on a casual day. This actually came just as the full sized ones would, just mini so I really love that it wasn't just thrown in without a case.
Overall I am pleased with my box this month. The box included a card about the new benefit fake up hydrating concealer with a bonus code for a free BADgal lash deluxe sample with any benefit purchase or when you spend $25+ on birchbox.com (code bbheartsbenefit).
The one thing I am completely bumming about (and will follow up with Birchbox about) is that I did not get the code for Madewell's site that would give me $25 of a purchase of $75+. They made mention we would all get a code in our box here.
