Birchbox February 2014

Rating: Like It!!!
Cost: $10/month

I received my February Birchbox yesterday and this month they teamed up with Us Weekly for the Step and Repeat box. The packaging was different this month, so I took some extra pictures.

Here is what was included in my box this month. I looked at my account so I knew what I would be getting this month, so there were no surprises when I opened the box.

I received Bain de Terre Passion Flower Color Preserving Shampoo. This shampoo smells great and works very well. Plus it's paraben free with a blend of argan and monoi oils, that's gentle for color treated hair. I was very happy this was included in my box. So far, I really like it.

I also received Bain de Terre Passion Flower Color Preserving Conditioner. I love when they include both the shampoo and conditioner as samples, so you can try both together to see the results. This smells amazing, like the shampoo! It also is paraben free and has argan and monoi oils. My hair felt nice and soft after one use.

The next sample I received was Caudalie S.O.S. Morning Eye Rescue. I love this! It glides on nice and sinks in well. There isn't a drastic improvement after a couple uses, but I do like how it feels on my skin, so I will continue using it.

I also received OPI Sheer Tints in I Can Teal You Like Me. I thought this would be my favorite item in the box, but I wasn't crazy about the color I received. It's quite dark for a tint, so it drastically changes the color of any nail polish you have as a base. I'm not sure what color nail polish I can wear this with, but I'll keep experimenting.

The beauty extra item I received was Harney & Sons Fine Teas in Paris and White Vanila Grapefruit. I'm excited to try these! I have used this brand of teas in the past and liked them, so I'm sure these will be great. I might make a cup of the Paris now, which is described as black teas with currant, caramel, and citrus. Doesn't that sound interesting?!?

I really liked the samples I received this month. I think the only spoiler product I saw that I didn't receive and would have liked to try was Ruby Wing color changing nail polish in Ride 'Em Cowgirl. It's a great gold sparkly polish that changes a red tone when you are outside. I think I'm going to have to purchase it! I love getting Birchbox each month, because there is always something included in my box that I can't wait to try.
