February Birchbox!

21 Feb

I’m not sure about how many people are familiar with Birchbox, but it’s a company that basically send you 4-5 random makeup/hair/beauty samples once a month for $10. It’s a great way to try out new products without spending a fortune and sometimes they send you pretty decent size samples! I would definitely recommend it; I mean who wouldn’t love a little box full of presents every month?!

This is a picture of my birchbox from this month:

1. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant: This is an exfoliating powder that you mix with water in order to make a paste. I actually used this a couple days ago and really enjoyed how fresh and smooth my skin felt. It was also a great size sample so I am pretty excited about that.

2. Eye Rock Designer Liner: These are stick on liquid liner strips. Clearly Halloween came early because that is the only time I could ever see myself wearing these.

3. Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint: First of all this is a tiny sample which I barely had enough to cover my entire face. Last month I received a lipgloss by this brand and I LOVED the quality and color of it so I was really excited to try this moisturizer out. I was really disappointed once I put it on because it was very shimmery and way too orange for my skin. It was so bad I washed it off immediately to save myself the embarrassment of going to class looking like an oompa loompa.

4. Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum: Once again this was a very small sample. At first I thought this was an acne spot treatment but the directions said that it can be applied to the entire face. Coincidently, I had a pimple erupting like a bad volcano so I decided to give this a try and put it on before bed. I woke up in the morning and the pimple was significantly smaller and less red! wahoo! The formula is very sticky so I would only recommend putting this on specific acne spots.

5. Heart shaped nail file: Not shown in the picture because it’s already in my purse, but it’s a cute addition for February.

With all that being said, I was a little disappointed with this month’s box. None of the products really stood out to me and I don’t plan on purchasing any of them full-size. Womp womp.

What did you guys think of your February Birchbox? What samples did you love or hate? Let me know!
