Birchbox February 2016

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

I received my February Birchbox last week. I couldn't wait to see what samples I received this month. I hadn't looked at spoilers this month, because my box shipped early. I've been loving the box designs!

Here is a peek inside.

Birchbox always includes an information card explaining all the samples you receive.

The item I chose this month was Arrow Boost Color Enhancing Lip Balm. This is a moisturizing lip balm that tints your lips. It adjusts to your pH to create the perfect hue for you and looks different on everyone. This gave my lips a subtle pink color that was very flattering. I wear lip balm all winter, so this is perfect for me! I really like it a lot!

The next sample included was Borghese Fango Purificante Clay Cleanser. You lather this in your hands and can apply it in the shower and rinse it off right away. It was different than other clay products I've tried and it didn't dry on my skin. It also smelled like dish soap bubbles, which I didn't expect. It wasn't a bad scent, smelled very clean, but not what I expected a clay cleanser to smell like. This did a great job of cleansing my skin!

I also received Catherine Malandrino Romance de Provence perfume. I hate receiving perfume samples. This was much too strong for me and I won't wear it. It always seems like such a waste of a sample when I'm sent perfume, because I generally don't use them.

The next sample made up for the perfume. I received Color Club Mini Polish in That's My Jam. I haven't received nail polish as a sample in quite a while and I really liked this color. The color reminds me of a mixture of strawberry and raspberry jam and it's very flattering on my pale skin tone. It went on very smooth and covered great. I wore this for Valentine's Day and it's lasting on my nails longer than normal. Usually my nails start chipping within a day or two. This is great polish!

The last sample I received was Corioliss Argan Conditioning Mask. This worked well to make my hair soft and smooth. I wasn't crazy about the perfumed scent, it was a little too strong and seemed to last a real long time. I will use this, but not often because of the scent.

The February Birchbox was not one of my favorite boxes, but it had a few samples I liked. Like I've said in the past, I really need to take a break from Birchbox, because I have an overwhelming amount of beauty products to use up. I may get a few too many subscription boxes that include beauty and skin care products. I'm not sure when my subscription is up, but when it is I will be taking a break for awhile.
