February Birchbox

Hello lovely people,

It's Birchbox time! Came earlier this month (I'm writing this well over a week after receiving my box)

Anyway quite disappointed about the appearance this month. It's brown! I've heard of going old school but brown. Yack so boring. Especially with it being the month of love and all that cliché BS. Haha. But nope, no pink, no red, no cute lil love hearts *sigh*


However the contents are much improved from last month but still not great like my first box in December was. However I could have just been overly excited about my first ever beauty subscription box! Haha.




Darjeeling Bath & Shower Wash. Full size rrp from £6.50. It's ok, fresh lemon scent. I use Dove which I love so I'll not be changing over.

Caudalie Radiance Serum. Full size retails at £45!! Quite a pricey product and I do love to use serum before my primer. I liked how this had a protective seal as well. However it's got a weird smell and I didn't like how it settled on my skin, like a strange sticky but not sticky feel to it.

Number 4 Comb Prep & Protect. Full size RRP £20. Not a fan of these leave in hair conditioners, so I gave mine to a friend.

The Balm Cosmetics Stainiac. RRP £10. This is like the Benefit lip tint. It's ok, I'd prefer a real gloss rather than a stain. Plus I noticed other boxes got the Cindy Lou manizer sample! Say what??? :o

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liner. RRP £11. Eye catching design with the black and pop of gold. This is lovely, very creamy and glides on great with no tugging. Smudges well for a great smokey eye look :)
I got black in my box, I'd prefer the silver option as I have loads of black liners but hey ho it's still a good product.

Finally you got a breakfast pack from The Chia Co. Worked out about 99p. I liked the food touch and as I'm being all healthy, this was a perfect option as chia seeds are a great protein source and full of omega 3 plus the oats and fruit add more nutritious goodness to this snack :)



So a mixture this month. It was an ok box. Still not bad for only £10 plus p&p as the liner was over a tenner. I like how you get to earn points with Birchbox which add up so you can buy stuff from the eshop! Happy days :D

  2. I used to subscribe to Birchbox but I cancelled as I didn't feel like I was getting products that I would use. I'm so tempted to sign up again though as I do miss getting a little box of beauty goodies in the post each month! Like you say, this box looks like a bit of a mixture of products, it's a shame about the serum as I would have thought this would be a really good product xx

    1. I know what you mean. The serum looked promising and for such an expensive one I expected better.
      I must admit my favourite subscription box it The Pink Parcel. Same price as the beauty ones and not only do you get supplies for your monthly needs but I thought the extras were fab :) x
