Birchbox February 2015


It's that time again for a review on my favorite subscription company! This month we celebrate Valentines Day and Birchbox has decided to go with the theme 'Birchbox Loves'. They  also celebrate the launch of their Slimbox designed to fit through the majority of letterboxes. I think this is a brilliant idea as some of my previous boxes had been left outside due to not being able to fit through the letterbox. In addition to this it is perfect for those who are constantly working and cannot/don't have someone at home to receive their box. I myself have opted for the Slimbox and I am happy to say it fit perfectly through my letterbox. If your worried about not a bigger sample not fitting in the Slimbox, do not worry Birchbox will add an extra sample to make up for it! If you want to sign up there will be a link that will earn you 50 points and a code for free 3 samples! 


Contents:

  • T London Darjeeling Bath & Shower Wash - With chamomile and green tea this is certain to be extremely calming. I look forward to using this on a day where I just want to kick back and relax!
  • theBalm Cosmetics Stainiac in 'Beauty Queen' -  When I applied this product the colour was not too intense and I actually quite liked it! All I would say is you need to work quickly when applying this because I can still see the little patch where it was first applied! I have noticed many people comparing this to 'Benetint' by Benefit which I have yet to try out but will be doing a comparison soon
  • Wild About Beauty Golden Skin Glow - When I first applied the product  I was quite intimidated as it came across way to dark for my pale skin tone however if you keep on blending it turns into a lovely subtle glow with few shimmer specks! Perfect for a bronzed look in the summer
  • Liz Earle Beauty Co. Botanical Shine Shampoo - I've never really tried anything from Liz Earle other than her renowned Cleanse and Polish. I'm currently on the lookout for a new shampoo & conditioner so I am looking forward to trying this out!
  • Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask - This is my least favorite item in the box as I know I will not be using it. I am not a huge fan of face masks anymore but I hope to try more of Ren's other products.
  • The Chia Co Oats + Chia in 'Mixed Berry' - This is the lifestyle extra within the box. I don't think it really goes with the theme of this months Birchbox I would of preferred some chocolate however I will give it a try none-the-less as Mixed Berry does sound nice!

Overall I think the February Birchbox was impressive, I am happy to see brands that I know and love as well some other brands that I would not generally think to even try! Although I think the products could of been more centered around the theme of Valentines Day such as some chocolates. Should you want to sign up for this months Birchbox there is a link below that will allow you to earn an extra 50 points by using it! Let me know what you thought about this months Birchbox! Have a lovely day and I hope you enjoyed reading this review!
