February Birchbox Review

I jumped on the bandwagon and signed up for a Birchbox subscription.  I couldn't resist at $10 a month! (I told myself I would eat out less at lunch to make for this cost) 

My first Birchbox arrived yesterday...a nice little Valentine's gift.  I also learned that not all Birchbox's each month are the same for every subscriber...there are several versions you can receive.  Before I received my Birchbox, I read on The Stylish Housewife's blog about her February box and was excited to receive several of the items she did...specifically the teeth whitener and Dermalogica scrub.  My box was totally different...but I was still very happy with my products.

A little happy waiting in your mailbox after a long day at work is so worth $10/month!



My box included:

- colorscience pro Glow and Go Travel Puff
Use these handy, powder-filled puffs to keep your skin shine-free and luminous while you're out on the town.  Full size compact, $50

-  Eye Rock Designer Liner
Stop wrestling with the liquid liner and achieve a perfect cat eye with these single-use stick-on liner strips.  2 packs of 4, $13

-  Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink
We teamed up with Jouer to create this custom fuchsia shade.  Wear one coat for semi-sheer pigment or layer it for a bright pink pucker.  Full size, $20 or Mid size, $8

-  Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy
This scent will bring out your inner girly girl.  Wild berries flirt with mandarin and soft floral notes to create a fragrance that's fun and happy.  Full size, $69-$89

-  Showstoppers Designer Fashion Tape
Celeb stylists swear by these double-sided tape strips, which will ensure that your attire stays perfectly in place.  Full size, $9.99

-  Digital Download of 6 free tunes from Green River Ordinance
An indie rock band poised to hit the spotlight.

My favorite item is the lipgloss.  The color is beautiful and it isn't sticky at all.  It feels more like chapstick or a creamy lipstick.  I would purchase this item, especially since you can get the mid-size for $8.  The fashion tape is great and will definitely get used on some summer tops and dresses I own.  I like that they gave me both nude and black samples.  The third favorite item is the Juicy perfume.  I wore it today and really like it. 

I can't wait to try the eyeliner stickers.  Don't worry, I don't plan to rock them in public!  Just for silly fun and it should make an excellent blog post. 

If you don't know about Birchbox yet, sign up here.  For $10/month, you will receive a monthly package that includes 4-5 beauty samples.  The samples can be purchased through their website and you can earn points toward those purchases.  You don't pay shipping and can cancel anytime.
