March 2014: Editor’s Letter

Daylight saving time is a polarizing concept. Some (me included) welcome that extra precious sunlight at the end of the day, while others bemoan losing an hour of sleep. Glass half-full or half-empty, there’s one thing we can all agree on: Now is the time to maximize. This is the month to make the most of your daylight hours, which means beauty hacks, easy DIY upgrades, and crafty ways to improve your Birchbox experience.

This month, we’re sampling nearly 90 products, all of which will improve your routine in some way. Two of my personal favorites: Air Repair’s skin-saving Rescue Balm, which I’ve been slathering on my hands, cuticles, and lips all winter; and Inika’s silky-smooth eyeliners, which come in rich pigments and have a built-in sharpener.

The Birchbox editors have also pulled out all their best tricks for you. We’ve got three DIY goddesses on upcycling Birchboxes, a guide to making your products last longer, tips on maximizing your Birchbox Points balance, and much more. And of course, we’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with—show us your upcycled boxes and your Birchbox Points brags. Still not a member? Now’s the time!
