Birchbox | February 2013

Joliebox is the new Birchbox and last month they released the UK's first Birchbox which you can view here if you wish. I was impressed with two of the products from the entire box and i am still yet to use at least one or two of the products yet because they haven't exactly tickled my fancy. For the last few months (since my She Said Beauty days) have been telling my boyfriend i am going to cancel my beauty box subscription completely and then Birchbox in partnership with She Said Beauty had an amazing offer and instead of cancelling i kinda made a new monthly subscription to a completely different beauty box, opps!!. Every month it's the same "I thought you were cancelling your beauty box" from my boyfriend. I can't bring myself to cancel it, i quite look forward to receiving my beauty box every month. I feel like a kid with a lucky bag and have never had a mega bad box just a few products that have been way to small.

This month's Birchbox is labelled London Fashion Week. And with all the fashion show's going on not just in London but around the world what a perfect way to get the subscribers to sort of join in then with a products that are available behind the scenes. This month's box is one of the reason's i can't bring myself to cancel because it's freakin' amazing.

I just after point out how much i LOVE this picture because of the light. I mean come on it's got a sun beam in it and everything. And yes it's still a bit cold, but the sun being out is just the cherry on top. Click picture to enlarge.

This months box comes in it's regular pink bag and Birchbox. And it's regular monthly mini magazine. And an incredible four, what seems to be full sized products, a pair of eyelash curlers and just one sachet. Woo for February Birchbox.

The sachet is a lifestyle extra. EBOOST | Natural Energy Booster
Full-size (20 pkts) £20.99. This is a energy boosting drink, packed with vitamins, minerals and super-nutrients. This is a all-natural orange flavour add the contents to a glass and add water then drink.

Beauty Extra | Eyelash curler £10.00
These are Birchbox very own eyelash curlers and are available to buy from the e-shop. Have never owned a pair of eyelash curlers before but what better way to try some. These are the price i pay monthly for Birchbox excluding P&P.

Gerda Spillmann | Bio Fond Cream Foundation
Birchbox say this light, creamy base foundation is easy to apply, offers great coverage and sets to a powder finish. It's also used on movie sets. Full-size is £20.00. I  got this in a cute easy travel compact with a mirror and sponge. The colour i received was Praline /01. I got 4.5g - 0.16oz. I am unsure whether this is full-sized. I am also unsure whether the shade will suit my skin tone, i am quite pale.

Vichy | Thermal Spa Water (Limited Edition)
Birchbox says - Soothing and regenerating, this multi-purpose product is naturally enriched with 15 minerals and 13 trace elements. It can be used as a toner, to set make-up or as a refreshing boost. Full-size is £7.00 i received 50ml. Whether this is full-size or not 50ml is a pretty good sample-size. 

Nick Chavez Beverly Hills | Plump N'thick Leave-in Thickening Mist
Birchbox says - Get visible volume with this light but powerful leave-in treatment from Nick Chavez. Just spritz onto towel-dried hair before styling. Full-size £13.90. This again is 59ml so a brilliant size.

Korres | Guava Shower Gel
Birchbox says - The sweet, sophisticated scent of this moisturising shower gel will invigorate you, while wheat proteins and aloe vera cleanse and hydrate your skin. Absolutely divine. Full-size £8.00. This is also 50ml. Can never have to many shower gels in my eyes.
There you have it February's Birchbox. I am unsure whether the sizes are sample sizes or full sizes but in my opinion they look like full sized products and if there not well let's just say the best sample sizes ever. I am mega impressed with this months box, have never tried any of these products before and really can't wait to dig deep and have fun trying the products. I have truly got my money's worth this month. What do you think of this months Birchbox?
