This is the list of what I got in this month’s box. Birchbox teamed up with Us Weekly for the awards season. The box’s theme is supposed to be making you camera ready.

Here are my initial thoughts:

100% Pure: This month’s 100% Pure item is mascara that is naturally tinted. It smells just like the lotion from last month. Overly blueberry. This smell fades a lot slower than the lotion and you’re supposed to put it on your eyes? I’m not sure about this at all.
Agave healing oil treatment: Hydrate and protect are two things I need. I’m indifferent about this one. I will try it though.
COOLA tinted matte SPF 30 for face: I’m very unfamiliar with “matte” products. The smell is low though. The tint is a little dark for my extremely pale skin. I may try it in place of my moisturizer on a day I can stay home.
DDF Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew: From what I understand, a dew is supposed to hydrate like a moisturizer, yet give you a glow. We’ll see if this does that.
Harvey Prince Hello: This smells OK. Really strong. I don’t care to receive scents in my box since I am allergic to most stronger smells. Not sure if this will get tried.

Over all, I’m pretty indifferent about February’s box. I’m not overly excited about anything or bummed about the box. I’ll give these products a shot and update next month.

Missed my January review? Catch up here before reading my final thoughts on those five items:

  • The tea was taken to work and sipped by my co-worker. I was not interested in those at all.
  • The 100% Pure lotion moisturized really well, but I couldn’t get over the smell. At all. This is a 100% no go in my world.
  • I ended up really liking the Toni&Guy hair treatment. I am alternating it with my usual after wash treatment product. This I would recommend.
  • The resist c15 super booster I never tried. Sorry. That product just wasn’t for me at all.
  • Nail rock was the item I was most excited to try (which you would know if you followed me on IG). It was just super messy and you didn’t get a whole lot of velvet in the pot. Maybe for an accent nail or two, but an entire manicure was over the top, for my personal taste.
Now for the exciting part: I’m giving away a three month subscription to Birchbox! You could be trying next month’s items at the same time as me. Make sure you take advantage of all the ways to enter and check out my Instagram for a way to earn a bonus entry. The contest will end next Wednesday, February 26, in time for you to sign up to receive your March Birchbox.

  1. I'm not one for beauty supplies, really. Only because I'm very minimalist in the beauty department. But it'd be fun to learn about a new 'must have' product that I might just fall in love with. 🙂

  2. I loved having Birchbox for the first few months! My favorite was getting a lipstick. I have never been into makeup or trying new things so I enjoyed making myself try new shades of lipstick.

  3. I tried Birchbox, cancelled when we were simplifying while Cody switched jobs. Wouldn't mind trying again!

  4. The only give you five so it's not overwhelming. I started wearing a lip crayon just because I got it in this box. Would've never tried it otherwise! Thanks for entering!

  5. Birchbox is beauty products, not just make up. Also, the products are sample sized with the occasional full sized product. I had ipsy for 2 months last year and decided it just wasn't for me at the time, though it's a great service!

  6. I have heard so much about Birch Box, but I have yet to pull the trigger. Maybe if I win… I'll want to commit to more!

  7. Like many, I've thought about trying Birchbox, but never committed! I'm entered in hopes I can try it risk-free!

  8. I've always thought a Birchbox would be such a great way to try new products. Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. I would love to try something new. I love all the goodies and enjoy your reviews. 🙂 Thanks for the contest.
