Birchbox: My thoughts on the February box & Why You Should Invest the $10 a month!

Hi Love Bugs!

I hope you are all doing absolutely fantastic on this wonderful Saturday morning. Today, I wanted to share with you my thoughts on Birchbox. If you haven’t heard of it, I highly recommend you visit their website: http://www.birchbox.com ASAP! This superb little box comes straight to your door mid-month harboring 5 perfect little beauty surprises. I am completely obsessed. Once, I get the “Your Birchbox has shipped email,” I wait with such heightened excitement with one of my co-workers, who also subscribes.

According to their website, Birchbox “helps you find products that you love.” I couldn’t agree more with this statement! Not only do I love sampling the beauty products, but I love getting a surprise every month in the mail. What girl doesn’t love receiving a package in the mail? Especially when it comes with great beauty products handpicked from your personal beauty profile. I also absolutely love how everything is travel-sized. The Pro to this for me personally is I don’t have to run to the travel section of Target to stock up on TSA approved toiletries for my trips!

Another Pro to Birchbox that I will admit I haven’t taken advantage of is reviewing products on their website. Once you review a product online, you are able to get points and purchase the products on the Birchbox website. I am actually going to review the products upon finishing this post since I am reviewing them here for you Love Bugs, today! I will let you know how it goes in my March Birchbox post. You also get points for referring friends, so if you do decide to get a Birchbox from this post, feel free to write my name down!

So without further ado, here are the contents of my February Birchbox:

For those of you who have never seen a Birchbox, this is what it looks like when you first receive it in the mail! The sight of this makes me as excited as a kid on Christmas!

Contents of the February box:

  1. Coastal Scents: Revealed Eye Shadow Palette| Full Size, $34
  2. Fekkai Glossing Shampoo & Conditioner |19.99-$39 each
  3. Harvey Prince Hello Perfume | $55
  4. 32 Oral Care: Breath Freshening Crystals with IsoVoxy | $9.99

DSC_0559Coastal Scents: Revealed Palette Sampler:ย I love this neutral palette. I am a sucker for eyeshadows, especially nude eyeshadows because you can utilize them for day/night looks! I actually own three Coastal Scents eye shadow palettes and some of their brushes. I have known about the Naples, Florida based company going on 3 years now. There products are fantastic. I put them on the same level as Mac products, and they are extremely cost friendly! Their colors are the perfect amount of shimmer and matte. I am definitely taking this small palette in my carry-on bag when I head to Australia and Fiji.

DSC_0565Fekkai: Brilliant Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner: I am honestly indifferent to these shampoos and conditioners. To be honest, in my January Birchbox I was given 2 Fekkai Shampoos and Conditioners but in a different scent. If I wasn’t stocking up on TSA approved toiletries, I would be irritated. The scent is a little citrusy for my liking, but not bad! Overall, I wouldn’t spend the extra money to buy Fekkai products.

Harvey Prince: Hello As I said earlier, I am not a big fan of citrus scents, I don’t hate them, but they are definitely not my go-to body spray of choice. This perfume is a nice mix of citrus and floral. It is a very energizing scent, and for that reason I will keep this little number on my desk at work for those moments I just want to freshen up. Would I personally buy this product? No. However, I will enjoy the sample because it is new and fresh, and I like that in a new product. I personally lean towards perfumes such as Chole. I absolutely love Chloe in all of its soft, floral, feminine greatness!

32 Oral Care:ย Effervescent Breath Crystals with IsoVoxy: Now, these were pretty cool. This is the exact reason I love Birchbox. It opens my eyes to new products I have never heard of. Would I buy these? Totallyโ€ฆ but only if they were by the register in the check-out line at Target. These fun little breath mints took me right back to the 90s. They are just like Pop Rocks! Every little thing about them reminds me of pop rocks. They are minty, fun, and fantastic. What more can you ask of from a mint?

If you have any questions on Birchbox, feel free to let me know! What are your thoughts on the February Birchbox?

Adios, Love Bugs!
