February Birchbox

YAY! My Birchbox arrived! I was so excited to open this and see the products, and I have to say, I was very pleased! If you do not know, Birchbox is a monthly box that is delivered to you free of shipping for only $10 a month, that is filled with samples of products. I am someone who loves to try new products so this was the perfect thing for me! The packaging is exquisite and what you receive is based on a beauty survey you take when you sign up!

Here is the link:

So here is my box, which I have to say is great as well for reusing because it is sturdy and a great size to hold small items. Inside the box, pink and purple tissue paper wrapped the items as well as a purple ribbon. This was so impressive to me that they took the time to package it this way and made it feel more special :)

I thought this was so cool, Eye liner stickers. And I have to admit, I have tried so hard to do the cat-eye or winged liner look and have yet to perfect it! I am going out with some girlfriends this Saturday and I cannot wait to try it out!

For the longest time I thought this was nailpolish (lol) but it is actually a lip gloss sample! The picture does not really do it justice- its a hot pink color (sorry). I decided to try this real quick and the color was great- more sheer than what you see- and didn't have that sticky gooey feeling I hate about lip gloss! I may just have to buy this in the full size!

These are double-sided sticky tape in black and nude that you use to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. I can't wait to give these a go!

This is a sample of the perfume, Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture. I actually own the full size of this perfume already and LOVE it!

Because I didn't want to open this until I thought I would need it, I am still really unsure what it is. I know, like it says, it is a puff that gives off color- for a sunless tan look I guess- but I am still intrigued and curious. I am assuming it is like a bronzer? I guess we will see!

Leave me a comment below if you have any questions about Birchbox, if you got a box this month with different items, or if you have tried any of these!


  1. I've read a few reviews of Birchbox but they only ship within the US which is such a shame. It's such a good idea!

    Hopefully there will be a UK version soon!


    1. There is Becky! I dont know if you have heard of: but she talks about "beauty boxes" on this blog:

      Hope this helps!

    2. Thank you so much for your reply. That was so helpful. I really, really appreciate it. Thanks lovely! Xx

  2. These products are amazing! I love all of them and want to
    try them all especially the Juicy perfume,

    Lacey xoxo

  3. I have the Juicy perfume too and love it! You got a really fun box for date night: lip gloss, boob tape, eyeliner stickers! hehe I'm still on the fence about Birchbox... I ordered a MyGlam bag to compare the two

    1. Ooooo! Let me know how you like your MyGlam bag! I am very interested in trying it!

  4. Amazing products! :) Have you tried out those eyeliner stickers?

  5. I've heard a lot about Birchbox but I heard that they don't have great items as of late. Do you find this to be true based on your previous boxes?

    1. This was actually my first box! So I want to try a few more months before I decide if I am going to switch to My Glam Bag!

  6. I just bought my first birch box... soooo excited!
