I recently subscribed to Birchbox, which is a beauty box that contains 5 beauty products from different brands. As I love trying out different products regularly, I subscribed to Birchbox. It’s like a gift to yourself (trust me, this is a great way of pampering yourself). The box you receive is personalized to your beauty profile, so the products you receive are chosen for you!
The February box
The theme of the February box is celebrating timeless beauty trends of the past. And these are the 5 products that I received in the February Birchbox.
- The Beauty Crop Eyeshadow:
This eyeshadow trio is nourished with avocado to help hydrate the skin while allowing you to highlight, shadow, line, and contour. You can create a perfect day to night look with this coffee-inspired palette.You can use this dry for a natural finish or wet for a more dramatic look. I received this eyeshadow in full size. Check out the brand HERE.
This lip balm by Pixi is packed with nourishing shea butter and vitamin E, so you’re assured that your lips are taken care of. This lip balm instantly moisturizers your lips and bonus it is infused with a hint of pink hue. I think this was a perfect pick for the winter weather. I received this lip balm in full size.
- Percy & Reed finishing polish
This gentle styler contains horse chestnut extract giving you a soft and flexible hold while the sunflower wax gently moisturizes. This is a lightweight nongreasy finisher which can be used for any style or hair type. I received this product in a travel size 30 ml.
- Luseta Coconut Milk Hair Mask
This hair mask is free from sulfates, paraben, and gluten. This nourishing mask is designed to repair damaged hair. The mix of fatty acids and vitamins will leave your strands soft, silky and protected. And this can be used also on colored hair. I received this product in a travel size 30 ml.
- Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream
This wonder eye cream is packed with chamomile lemon and cucumber oils to brighten, while rosehip and carrot oils help soften and smoothen this delicate area. It is rich but not heavy and gets easily absorbed in the skin. I received this product in a 7ml sample size.
This was my first Birchbox and I think it didn’t impress me much except for the coconut milk hair mask.
The March box
The march box is all about you and giving that extra time to yourself. So it’s time to relax and look after yourself. And these are the products are received in the March box.
BLAQ comes to the rescue to those tired eyes with this Hydrogel eyemask. Remove the thin film layer and apply the eyemask under your eyes and leave them on for about 15 minutes, letting the activated charcoal detox and de-puff tired eyes.
- Benefit BADgirl BANG Mascara
This Mascara by benefit contains aero-particles, commonly found in astronauts spacesuits, to deliver volume with lightweight lift in every swipe. The brush is moulds to catch every single lash from corner to corner and the impactful look will last u upto 36 hours.
- Manna Kadar Brozer -highlighter Duo
This product was full size and a handy duo of bronzer and highlighter. You can either buff the bronzer all over the face for a subtle glow to skin or just dust beneath your cheekbones for a natural sculpt. To complete the look sweep the highlighter on the cheeks.
- Oribe Apres beach wave & shine spray
This two in one formula work both on wet or dry hair to create a natural unfussy appearance of beach waves without the crispy effects of salt water. Just give the can a good shake and spray it on your hair and work your fingers through for a tousled finish. I received this product in a travel size.
This body scrub is perfect for sad and dull skin. It’s packed with honey and soothing Shea and is a great exfoliator for brightening and sloughing away dry patches. Massage it onto damp skin in circular motions and wash away with warm water, bonus point it smells yummy.
I absolutely loved the March BIRCHBOX, I loved all the products and can’t wait to try them all.
