"Shine Bright Like a Diamond" February Birchbox: Unboxing and Review
I really wasn't happy with the delivery service of Birchbox this month. I didn't get the box until well after it was due, over 2 weeks later. I posted a picture on Instagram in the hopes of winning the highly coveted and beautiful diamond necklace.
I was so happy to discover I had received the purple box as there were 3 designs this month with blue, pink and purple stripes, but my favourite colour is purple! So onto the box!
And the products!
|Number 4 Lumiere d'Hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect - £20.00|
|Only Fingers and Toes Nail Polish -£16.00|
|Spectrum Collections Tapered Finishing Brush - £7.99|
|AYRES Body Butter (Patagonia) - £19.50|
I love the packaging of this and I think it looks so cute! The cream is cooling and thick which makes it a great moisturizer. It absorbed into my skin pretty quickly but it did leave me feeling a little sticky so I had to wait a little while for that to go unfortunately. I think this would be a great hand moisturizer to use before bed but during the day it may be too faffy to get jobs done. The massive downside for me was the smell. It was a very heavy fragrant which I assume is the overpowering jasmine but if you like the smell, it can be very calming.
|Birchbox Love Of Colour One and Done Shadow Stick (Perfect Cents) - £8.00|
Firstly, I thought it was amazing that they let subscribers pick their own colour for their new eye products. If you haven't picked yours yet, click here and to help make up your mind you can watch this video to see the colours in use!
|Derm Eyes Make-Up Remover Wipes - £9.50|
Overall, the box is gorgeous! I love the design and it's simplicity. I'm really not happy with the variety of products. I received yet another leave in spray conditioner and a nail varnish colour that I will never you. The LOC eye stick, however, was amazing!
