Let's Get the Boring Inserts Out of the Way First

My Box
I like the pretty green paper!  My camera has decided to start taking horrible pictures, so you cannot tell how pretty the lime green paper actually is :(

 Yes To Blueberries Brightening Facial Towelettes
Value $2.13
This is the bonus item for my box this month.  As a bonus, this is a pretty darn great deal!  The full size is available at Target.  I am going to save these for vacation this summer, so I won't be able to review until then, though.

Be Fine Exfoliating Cleanser and Daily Moisturizer
Value $15.79
What I LOVE about this sample is that there are 5 individual packets.  These packets are FULL!  I am thinking you can get at least a few uses from each packet.  I have the full size exfoliator, but I am excited to use the moisturizer and am glad to have travel packets of the cleanser.  Great choice, Birchbox!

Zoya Polish in Bevin
Value $4
I am not a huge Zoya fan, but then again, I am not big on nail polishes in general.  I have them in various shades of pink, but I tend to just use whatever is at the salon.  If I do my nails at home, the polish never lasts.  This is a color I would not use, so I plan to use it in a giveaway.  I do think these are nice of Birchbox to give out, it just is not for me.

Wonderstruck Perfume by Taylor Swift
Value $.70
I am thinking I may have miscalculated the value, but I checked 3 times.  The 3.4 oz version is only $59.50 and this sample is .04 oz.  It is a bigger vial than I normally see for perfume samples.  I did not love this perfume, but my boyfriend likes it, so I may have to try it out for a few days to see if it grows on me.  I do not hate it, it was just not my favorite.

Lulu Organics Lavender & Clary Sage Hair Powder
Value $1.32
I am pretty excited about this sample and cannot wait to use it.  I have to wash my hair EVERY day and in an extreme emergency in which I wake up late, I have to settle for baby powder.  I have tried various dry shampoo sprays, but none have been all that great (the best is a brand I received from Beauty Army).  I love that this is a powder, which is really what my hair needs most on days when I do not have time to wash.  I will be posting a review of this as soon as I have the opportunity to use it (knowing me and the fact that next week is the week after spring break, I have an idea I may need to use it SOON)!

Overall I love my box this month!  At first I was a little disappointed when I saw what I would be receiving online, but I instantly changed my mind when I had the box in hand.  There are lots of great things I cannot wait to try out and I love the convenience of the products this month.  I hope everyone else loves their box as much as I do!
