February's Birchbox


Birchbox Loves is this months theme, and when I first looked opened the box and looked at the products I was pretty impressed at how luxurious these products looked so I'm really excited to get trying them.

London Butterflies Whipped Body Cream £37
In a really nice, luxury glass jar, this smells amazing with jasmine, starflower and almond oil. When I applied it on my arms, I found it sinks into the skin really nicely and doesn't leave any greasy feeling. Although quite expensive it would be a lovely gift. 

The Balm Cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen £10
Any of TheBalm products that I've tried I've liked so I'm hoping this is no exception. This 1.2ml sample said to be a long-lasting pop of colour to the cheeks and lips with this gel stain. Stains are tricky to get right, as you never want to put it straight onto the skin because no matter how many times you try, you will always see that initial stain when you first apply it, even if the rest is blended out. I'm keep to see how this one performs.

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner in Black £11
Eyeliners are a makeup product I wear everyday and this creamy, blackest black eyeliner says it lasts all day so I'm hoping it lives up to that. You can smudge it but it dries pretty quick so you have to work quickly with it. I had to scrub this off with an oil based cleanser before it would even budge. It's hard core which is a good sign for an eyeliner, especially if it sticks around in the waterline all day. I wonder how much smudging they'll be, being a creamy formula and all. 

Liz Earle Beauty Co Botanical Shine Shampoo £10
I've tried a few different Liz Earle products and have my eye on a few but I've never thought about trying there hair range. This shampoo is said to have vitamin E, fruit extracts and shea butter to give a boost of shine to the hair. I am all for anything that makes my hair look healthier. 

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum £45
This radiance boosting oil-free formula is supposed to leave your skin glowing and as a serum it has a much better chance to penetrate deeper into the layers of your skin so I will definitely be giving this product a whirl. 

Vita Coco Coconut Oil £10.99+ 
Finally is one of my favourite things from the whole box, Coconut Oil. I love coconut oil. It's great for so many things like cooking with, using for beauty purposes such as a makeup remover, hair mask, bath soak, and can also be used in your coffee to boost your natural energy and get you ready for the day. Plus, this one in particular is a really great quality, extra virgin, cold pressed 100% raw and organic.
