Birchbox for March

In case you're wondering, Birchbox is a monthly beauty subscription service, that brings sample and trial sizes of make-up and skin care samples to your door for $10.00 a month.
This month's box was kind of a bomb for me. Nothing I would purchase for myself.
First product:
Mirenesse Glossy Kiss lip crayon:
First and most importantly, this is a color that I would not wear, (I did at least try it on), so I can't really comment on the products hydration factor (as it claims), or its lasting ability.

Elite Therapeutics Rosemary Eucalyptus body creme:
A very light moisturizer with a terrible smell. I won't use it.

Amika Blowout Spray: Said to volumize, smooth, and protect the hair before blow-drying.
Come on now-have you seen my hair? I've mentioned it enough times now about my curly, kinky, dry, frizzy curls. The spray will end up in my giveaway box. BTW: When am I doing a giveaway? (soon)

The Mereadesso tinted "All in one" moisturizer I have not tried yet, but I have a difficult time and yet to have found one of these "multi-taskers" that I like, ie: primer, serum, foundation, BB, CC cream type product.

Number 4 Clarifying shampoo and reconstructive hair mask:
Its claim: To gently purify hair and restore moisture and shine. I don't really think I need a clarifying shampoo right now, but I tried this one today. It's a clear, full foaming shampoo with a very mild herbal scent. I didn't see any difference in my hair with this shampoo. It does carry a high price tag: $32.00-$72.00 depending on size.
The hair mask, I liked. It contains soy protein and shea butter, jojoba seed oil, and sunflower oil. It did provide a great smoothing and moisturizing effect on my hair and left my hair with soft curls. Still, another pricey one; $58.00 for 5.1 oz. I'll have to save up my Birchbox points a while if I want this one! (You get points for leaving feedback on the products you receive, and when friends join.)
I hope you enjoyed this month's Birchbox review, even though I didn't enjoy the products much!
