March Birchbox Review: Harvey Prince Signature Fragrance and Number 4 Reconstructing Masque

After reading the description for the Signature fragrance by Harvey Prince, I should have known it wouldn't be my cup of tea. If you've read my other fragrance posts, I tend to go for certain types of scents, those mostly containing strong rose or peony notes. But never less, not one to waste ANYTHING, I proceeded on to use it. The scent wasn't awful by any means, I mean I did make it through the whole sample, it just wasn't something I would consider purchasing and want to wear constantly. The fragrance did have a really strong staying power. Imagine that, a scent that is not my fave holding on to my skin so I'm forced to smell it all day LOL. As with any scent, the way it smells on me or my tastes will be very different from anyone else, so don't necessarily rule it out because I didn't like it. That's why samples are great! You get to try it out for a week or so and really smell it to finally come to a decision! A plus about this fragrance (on the Birchbox site, I haven't checked others) is that it comes in different sizes. A smaller version to throw in your bag or for travel and a larger one to sit atop your vanity!

Now on to my favorite item in the March box, the Number 4 Reconstructing Masque. I had heard and read many amazing reviews about this product line in general that I was very eager to try it myself. Well, I absolutely loved everything about this hair product! The scent, the consistency, how my hair felt after......EVERYTHING!! My hair was so soft after just one use that I was amazed. What else was amazing was how little of the product I actually used. I was pretty bummed when I first saw the sample because I thought I would barely get one use out of it. However on the back of the package it said a little goes a long way, so I tried out that method, and it worked!! So not only did I find my new go to hair masque, but the fact that you only need a little bit made me feel better about the price! If you haven't tried the Number 4 hair care line yet, you should!     


  1. I'm totally on the same page with you! I wasn't a huge fan of the Sincerely fragrance. I think the quality is wonderful, but the scent just wasn't for me. And I also LOVED the Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo and Reconstructing Masque. They made my hair so happy! I only wish the full sizes weren't so crazy expensive.

  2. I received the same No. 4 Hair Mask in my March Birchbox!! Feel free to check out at Blueridge Beauty on Facebook and on Blogger/Google
