I was happy with this month's box - though I could care less about the "March Madness" connected theme (I find basketball so boring!!!). Here's what I received...

Madewell for Birchbox Emery Board
Birchbox says: We teamed up with Madewell to create this adorable mani savior, patterned after a print from their spring collection.
Full size: $5
My review: Though I love a good emery board, I found the print to be old looking and I am not sure why it costs $5. It is in my purse now and I will use it when I need it.
Make Face Primer Broad Spectrum
Birchbox says: Pump up your makeup's endurance and protect skin with this two-in-one base and SPF.
My review: I used this product but I don't think I get it. What is a face primer supposed to do? If I am already using moisturizer then what changes should I see when I use this?
Nick Chavez Beverly Hills Color-Saver Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Paraben-Free Conditioner
Birchbox says: The Hollywood stylist devised this sulfate-free shampoo to enhance the vibrancy of your hue. It's loaded with yummy apple and lemon extracts that boost volume.
Made with a team of restorative peptides, this gentle conditioner sinks into each stand to boost shine and enhance your hair color.
Full-size: $22, $24
My review: I really, really liked everything about this shampoo and conditioner (except the smell, ick!). I wouldn't spend that much for a full-size but I will happily use the whole sample.
Caldrea Body Lotion
Birchbox says: We adore these elegant body lotions, which come in three ethereal scents: Tea Olive Lime, Aloe Water Apricot, and Coconut Fig.
My review: I haven't used these yet so no review here. :)
Birchbox says: This new brand's pretty pigments have serious staying power, and we love that one-third of all sales are donated to charity.
My review: This color is a dark grey and I do not like wearing dark colored eye shadow. Maybe one day -- but not now.
Overall, I would give this month's Birchbox three out of five stars.
