Birchbox February 2013 Review

February 2013 Birchbox

I have been subscribed to Birchbox the longest of any of my boxes. I read great ¬†things about the boxes, got on the waiting list, and then eventually squealed with joy when I got the actual invite! The first time I got my box I was jumping up and down like a little girl…. yes, I was 21 years old, but sometimes we’re still allowed to act like a free-spirited¬†child ūüėČ With Birchbox, you get 5-6 deluxe samples from some of the best brands around. The cost is $10/month, and I totally think that it’s worth it. They also let you know what the real price of the full size product is so you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.¬†

I CANNOT wait to use this, it says that it conditions and smooths out, and it’s a UV protector and so much more! I have a feeling I’m gonna fall in love with this product…. we’ll see…

Item #2: Color Club:¬†Nail Polish in color “Mamba” (0.25 oz)

(full size: $8.00)

Nail Polish

This is just your average perfect red, never runs out of style. I like this brand a lot :]

Item #3: Juicy Couture: Couture La La (tiny spray sample)

(full-size: $19-90)

Perfume

This smells soooo yummy I love it I really do, would def contemplate buying this full size.

Item #4: WEI: Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask (0.3 oz)

(Full size: $42.00)

Mud Mask

I really don’t like the packaging of this product off the bat, so that was a big turn off for me. This is also a product from the same brand as another one, thought that was a little odd too. I haven’t used this yet but read good things about it online so I’ll be giving it a try soon.

Item #5 “Beauty Extra”: WEI:¬†Pomegranate Buffing Beads (2 packets)

(Full size: $20)

Facial Scrub

Facial Scrub

This is pretty cool & easy because you can just mix with water and then rub in your face for a few seconds and bam, you got all your dead skin cells off that face of yours! I like how they come in these individual packages, very easy to use.

Final Item “Treat”: Ghirardelli:¬†Milk Chocolate with Caramel Square

Chocolate!

Chocolate!

It’s always so nice to get a fun, chocolately¬†surprise¬†in any box I get!!! Although I usually eat them right away,¬†surprised¬†this one lastest long enough for me to take a picture of it! ;]

All in all, I think this was a pretty good Birchbox for the month. I know for a fact I’ll be putting to use at least 4 of the items very soon, so I think I got my money’s worth. It’s always just so much fun opening these things!!! (and then organizing them into their various sample¬†categories¬†in my drawers…. but that’s another story/entry…)

All love & smiles :]
