Welcome to my March Birchbox post! I apologise for slipping slightly with my posting schedule of every other day. I've been feeling a bit run down this week and sure enough I've developed a full blown cold the last couple of days so feel lousy! But I finally have a day off to rest and catch up with my blog!
This months box is a collaboration with Lulu Guinness and is packed with products to put a spring in your step.
I absolutely love the cover over the box as it's really striking with the black, white and a pop of colour. I'm also pleased to see that they have stuck with the drawstring bag inside and not resorted to tissue paper again!
Korres Citrus Body Milk
I'm pretty sure I've seen Korres products before but I've definitely never tried any. I'm intrigued to try this body milk as I'm always on the hunt for new body products that aren't sticky. A full size costs £9.50.
Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose Replenishing Hand Cream
Oh my this hand cream smells amazing! Although it's Rhubarb & Rose, it really reminds me of rhubarb and custard sweets. I have trouble finding hand creams that don't irritate my eczema so it's nice to try samples like this rather than waste money buying the full size for £10 for me not to be able to use it.
Benefit Stay Don't Stray
I'm a fan of Benefit but I haven't tried many eye primers regardless of the brand. The only eye primer I've used is Urban Decay's Primer Potion so it'll be interesting to see how this compares to it. A full size primer will cost you £20.50.
Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner
Well everyone loves a good pore minimising product at the moment. There are so many similar products, of which I've tried several. It'll be interesting to compare this one to the others as this is definitely a higher end choice as a full size will cost £39!
English Laundry Signature For Her Eau de Parfum
I've never heard of this fragrance before but it smells quite nice. I wouldn't say it's a scent that I would go out and buy and I'm a little disappointed about receiving a perfume sample as these are free to pick up in stores such as Boots or fragrance shops. Full price bottles retail from £16.
This is such a cute touch to the box as it represents the sweet shops that inspired Lulu Guinness' SS14 collection.
Overall this is probably the worst box I've received. Although it's not bad at all and I'm still pleased with the products included as I'll use them all. It was just a slight let down that one product was a sample you can get for free.
