Caldrea Body Lotion – .75 oz total – Value $2

Normally I’m not excited about foil packets in subscription boxes, but I was very happy to see these! I love Caldrea products, and it’s great to sample the scents through subscription boxes before I commit to a full sized product. So far I’ve tried the Coconut Fig Leaf – it’s fantastic!

Verdict: Yay – both of my March Birchboxes were a win! Anyone else have multiple Birchbox subscriptions? Are you happy with the variety of items you receive?

  1. I got this exact box, too. I loved the lotions the best. The shampoo is ok but that tiny packet of conditioner wasn’t enough for my below the shoulder hair. I got the grey shadow, too, but would have loved the purple you got in your other box.

  2. I received that exact box, except that the eye shadow I received was Alabaster. You can’t even see it on my skin, ha! 🙂 Love that shampoo, it smells divine!

    Thanks for all the posts, I love your site!
