February Birchbox



 It's been a whole six months since I was last subscribed to a beauty box. Except the occasional Latest in Beauty box I've pretty much just gone without. I've had some serious green with envy moments whilst admiring them from a far, though. The last few boxes I've seen from Birchbox have had me gripped and wanting to subscribe, so when an email popped into my inbox offering me an unbelievable offer I quickly signed up, once again. I'm currently unsure of how long I will stay subscribed for, but with Valentine's Day just passing and my Birthday at the end of next month I thought I had earned a little beauty treat.



 London Butterflies - £35 - This is a beautiful bath salt scrub with dead sea salt and sweet almond oil. Claims - The dead sea salt particles, with an essence of sea minerals, gently exfoliate the skin whilst sweet almond oil locks in moisture to keep the skin hydrated. The packaging looks very luxurious. I'm really looking forward to giving this ago and the fact it smells so good is a bonus. Full-size is 225g. I got 34g, making this worth just over £5. 


 Vita Coco Coconut Oil - £9.99 - Coconut oil is such an amazing product. It's very multifunctional and good for your insides as well as your outsides. Try it with baking, add to smoothies or even on your face for moisturising. Full-size is 500ml. My sample-size doesn't have a size on it, but it's a very good size and depending what you use it for could last quite sometime. I shall be using mine for beauty purposes and looking forward to seeing the goodness it does to my hair.


Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum - £45 - This is an oil free serum that helps even skin tone and gives a glowing complexion. It's a great serum for dry skin, something I've suffered a little with due to the constant changing weather. Full-size is 30ml. My sample-size is 10ml, which doesn't seem a lot but like most serums a little goes a long way. This sample is worth £15.


 Electric Hair Hydrate Shampoo -  £17.50 - I'm more than happy to receive a sample-sized shampoo in my box. I go away a good few times a year and this little bottle will come in handy. The hydrate shampoo is packed with moisture-rich ingredients that retain hydration and add a beautiful, healthy looking shine. My hair likes to fail me, sometimes, so the added shine and hydration is welcome. Full-size is 250ml. My bottle is 30ml and worth a little over £2.


 The Balm Stainiac in Beauty Queen - £10 - This is a two-in-one hint of tint for cheeks and lips. It's quite a small sample with 1.2ml of product, but a little does go a long way and it's the perfect size for throwing in your handbag. I'm a little wary of using cheek tints and will definitely be sticking to using this on the lips. I tried it on my hand and it refuses to budge with a wipe. It's not crazy pigmented but adds a nice hint of colour.  


 Eyeko Fat Eye Stick - £16.00 - I really like Eyeko and have owned a couple of products from their lines so I was more than happy to get a fat eye stick in my box. This is a dark brown toned gold with a hint of green to it and plenty of shimmer. The stick can also be pushed up to reveal more product. I'm a huge fan of chubby eye sticks, they are quick and easy to use when in a rush and the looks that can be created are minimal to do. This is worth just over £5 with the full-size product coming in a set of 3.


Birchbox had an amazing offer on, and part of the reason for me subscribing was the fact that they were offering me 3 deluxe Benefit samples for doing so, all of which I've never tried. I got the Creaseless Cream Shadow in R.S.V.P, They're Real! Remover and They're Real! Push-up Liner.

This months box was really impressive and the treats for subscribing again were lovely. I'll definitely be reviewing many of these in weeks to come. In the mean time, if you would like to subscribe you can do so by clicking the link > here. In doing so you will automatically get £5 to spend in the Birchbox e-shop. Not only that, in the March box you get to choose 1 of 3 Benefit mascara's; including the new Roller Lash.

  2. Pretty solid haul! I'm really tempted by Beauty Boxes, but I dunno if it's too much of an indulgence. My heart is set on the French one, My Little Box. I think I might even just order one to see how I get on :)

    1. I think the beauty boxes are reasonably priced in terms of what you get so its not to much of an indulgence. I thought I deserved a treat after going all this time without one lol x
