Another month, another Birchbox – and I liked the March box much more than February.

Probably my favorite product of the bunch was the Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum.  As a malignant melanoma survivor (15 years this fall – time really does fly), sun protection is supremely important to me.  I love that this serum is a moisturizer AND a powerful sunscreen, and that it is light and non-greasy.  I wore it under makeup and it worked beautifully.  I will definitely be buying this in the future!

As a perfume jumkie, I am always excited to see fragrance samples.  Upon first sniff, I wasn’t sure what to think of Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume.  I usually prefer clean, crisp scents, and this one was more spicy and amber-y.  I actually grew to like the way it smelled on my skin, but I’m not sure I would commit to a full bottle.  It’s a nice fragrance, just not for me.

I was excited to see the INIKA Certified Organic Eyeliner (in Green Lagoon).  Not only was it a full-size product, but the color glided on easily and worked great with a number of shadow looks.  I probably won’t buy this, because I prefer liquid liner, but I still think it is a quality pencil.

The Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream was a mixed bag.  I wasn’t able to wear it long enough to see results, so I’m not sure I’d choose it over a self-tanning moisturizer.  However, it had a very nice fragrance, and the texture was great (it went on smoothly and absorbed quickly).  Maybe I just need to invest in a larger bottle to see if extended use brings results?  Jergens is an affordable brand, so I’m less afraid of jumping in sight unseen.

I haven’t even used the Curly Hair Solutions – Curl Keeper.  I don’t have particularly curly or wavy hair, and it has been so dry here lately that frizz isn’t really an issue (now, static is a totally different story).  Considering that the rest of the box was so good, I didn’t get too bent out of shape that this product wasn’t really applicable to my profile and beauty routine.

What did everyone else get in March?
