What’s In My Birchbox? | February 2016

This month’s Birchbox was kind of meh for me. I only liked 2 out of the 5 products in the box. But, I will continue to subscribe to them because I love that I am always being introduced to brands I have never heard of and for only $10 a month! This month’s samples are worth approximately $33. $10 for $33 worth of samples is a pretty good deal in my opinion! Click here to use my referral link to subscribe to your own box!

The theme this month is “What’s the Occasion?” I honestly don’t see what any of these products have to do with the theme, except for maybe the nail polish and the body wash (getting fresh for an event?). Lol! I don’t know… I really liked the actual box. It made me think of a sparkly night out with the designs. I think I may actually keep this one. Maybe use it as a gift box or something. But, let’s see what all I received this month!

Arrow BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm | Full size, $14 

Since I am such a huge lip product fan, I was excited to receive this one in my box! Arrow is a new brand exclusive to Birchbox, which makes this product even more special. But, anyway, I really liked this lip balm! It is extremely moisturizing and it has a mild minty scent to it which was actually really nice. Also, this balm is supposed to adjust to your pH. When it does this, it is supposed to enhance your natural lip color creating the perfect hue. It turned my lips a reddish hue. Not too red to where it looks like I’m wearing lipstick…it actually looks very natural. This product is definitely a winner for me and I will be repurchasing in the future.

Color Club Mini Polish in That’s My Jam | Full size, $8.50 

Well this was a pleasant surprise! I haven’t received a nail polish in a Birchbox since I started receiving them, but I have hoped that I one day would and that day has finally come! I have never heard of this brand before, which makes me even more excited to try this polish! It is a deep wine color…depending on the light, it looks either red or pink. It applied with a jelly like consistency and has a glossy creme finish. 

Not Soap, Radio Body Wash in Liquid Freud | Full Size, $16

I do not use body wash, I am more of a Dove soap bar kind of girl. Because of that, I cannot give a real review of this product. I will say that it smells like coconut which, surprisingly, was not too bad since I HATE the smell, taste, and anything else related to coconuts. I will say that all of the reviews I read on the product page were really good! So, if you are a body wash kind of gal, give this one a try!

Obliphica Professional Seaberry Serum (Medium to Coarse) | Full size, $38

I have not had a chance to try out this product and I do not know if I will. I’m actually tired of receiving hair products in my boxes because I do not like trying out new products on my hair. Mainly because it is a PROCESS to wash and style my hair and if I do not like the way a product makes my hair feel, then I have to start the process all the way over. Not fun. Not here for it. Lol! So, most times, when I am going to try out a new product, it is the day before wash day. Anyway, this product is said to revive damaged, colored, and unmanageable hair for a smooth and shiny finish. It can be used on wet or dry hair, so I may try it out right before I wash my hair the next time to see if it weighs my hair down or not.

Whish Revitalizing Cleansing Oil | Full size, $30

This is a facial cleansing oil that removes makeup and impurities from your skin. There is really no odor to this product. Unfortunately, this is another product that I will not be using. I already have a good makeup remover that I love, as well as, a good facial cleanser. I will say there are mixed reviews on the website about this product. It seems that most people can do without it.
