Birchbox partnered with Teen Vogue to offer a special series for the month of March (prom themed?). I decided to sign up, since the sponsored boxes seem worthwhile (i.e. Cynthia Rowley). I'm glad I signed up for this month, but I only really used the twistband. I'm choosing not to continue with my subscription because of the mediocrity of my past boxes.
