Seams and Sprinkles

A sweet and fashionable life, one post at a time.

Revealed: March Birchbox

It has been so hard to contain my excitement long enough to try all my lovely samples in this month's Birchbox to share with you! I was debating about joining this program initially, but I figured it would be nice to sample things for a change before I spend bu-coo bucks on the large size only to find out I cannot stand the product! I think this will save me, well and my wallet, a lot of heartache! I am already jazzed up about April's box- they are Madmen themed! I am a modern vintage darling in heaven!! Let me not get too far ahead with my own anticipation and give you my thoughts on this month's box first.

Disclaimer: I have not been given any of these products, I am a Birchbox subscriber and these are all my own views and experiences. You may have different thoughts so feel free to take what I say with a grain of salt, as they say.

Okay, now that formalities are out of the way let's dive into these adorable samples!





Supergoop! Advanced Anti-Aging Eye cream SPF 37

“Eye” Loved it!
The sample was pretty small but I actually got quite a few uses out of it, maybe about a week's worth. I used it every morning after using a facial cleansing wipe and applying a daily moisturizer. I noticed an instant tightening feeling and lightening of the dark circles under my eyes over the past few days. I would definitely use this product and I am sure it would last a long time since you don’t have to use too much each morning. This is also the first product for the eyes that has had SPF for this area specifically, which makes me love it even more. I would recommend it whole-heartedly!

Davines Ol/ Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion

“Not too Shabby”
The line of products was not too bad. The smell reminded me of a mature lady perfume or a fancy bar of soap. The oil was a great sample size, I am certain it will last me a long time. I typically incorporate some type of hair oil in my daily routine and it will be nice to switch it up a bit and see how this lasts over time. So far in using it, I did notice that I had fewer frizzes and the oil was lightweight and did not make my hair look heavier.


Davines Ol/ Shampoo and Conditioner

"Not yet Convinced"
The sample shampoo and conditioner of this brand was only one use for my thick hair so I wouldn't really be able to tell the lasting effects of this product. I did not care too much for the smell but it was not unbearable. My hair did still feel lightweight and looked smooth in combination with the Beautifying Potion.

Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Highlighter Gel

“Versatile Product”
I think that even though this was a smaller sample it will last me a long time. A little bit really does go a long way and it lasted all day for me. I like the color and even used this as an eyeshadow replacement.

Harvey Prince Singular Scentsations Imperial Gardenia Perfume

“Simple yet Elegant”
This perfume immediately caught my eye with the Harvey Prince Logo- it has a carriage being pulled by a unicorn! I was instantly in love! The smell itself is a beautiful gardenia scent that is not too overpowering but just feminine enough. I also love how sheer it sprayed on. I loved this perfume!

Temple Spa Peace Be Still Calming Body Balm

“Instant Soothing Balm”
I really enjoyed the smell of this balm. Lavender instantly has a calming effect on me and I did feel relaxed when I put it on after getting out of the shower. I think the only setback for me is that it is not very thick. I found myself wanting this to be more of a body butter consistency for me to really love it so it would also help moisturize my skin more.


So, have I convinced you to join Birchbox and get started on your own beauty experience each month? C'mon, you deserve it! You can join for the year or request one by month- choose the option that works best for you (or your lifesaving wallet). You can start by browsing the Birchbox website and subscribing. They have both men and women boxes available. A subscription would also make a great gift idea, especially for those people who seem to have it all already!

I hope you enjoyed sharing my March Birchbox experience with me and I can tell you many more exciting things are coming soon for Seams & Sprinkles! I have been jotting down all my fun ideas in my inspirational notebook and will be sure to give my pen and paper wings to get to you.
