February Birchbox Unboxing 2016!

February Birchbox

Hi everyone!  Thank you so much for the sweet comments I received yesterday for my 2nd blogiversary-it made my day! 🙂

February’s Birchbox has arrived so let’s take a look at what’s inside!

Cartier Baiser Vole Lys Rose 

“From a brand that knows elegance, a romantic floral scent with notes of fresh, powdery lily.”  I usually like rose scented perfumes but I think the combination of lily made this a bit overwhelming and I’m not a fan of it.

Marcelle NewAge 8 in 1 Power Serum 

This is a lightweight anti-aging gel that is supposed to provide, “eight transformative benefits in one tube.”  A quick glance at the ingredient list shows a few peptides, which can help with ant-aging issues.  I’ve only used this once and it is light with a silky, almost silicone-like, feel when applied.  My skin felt and looked a bit smoother afterwards.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar- Black Metal Dahlia 

A cruelty-free, cult favorite product, this liquid lipstick offers matte and opaque coverage with the tiniest application.  I haven’t tried this one because I’m thinking of giving it away as I already have something similar to this.

Ouidad VitaCurl Define & Shine Styling Gel-Cream 

This ultrahydrating, non-sticky formula is said to enhance the texture of curls and waves while leaving a luminous finish. I’ve used this once and it did provide a hold to the curls without leaving them crunchy.  Since the sample size on this is generous, I will keep testing this out to see how it works in the long run.

Whish Revitalizing Cleansing Oil 

“This skin-balancing cleansing oil melts away makeup, oil, and impurities.” I’ve used this at night and I rub a dime size amount over my face to help breakdown my makeup.  I then rinse with water and follow up with my cleanser.  I do like this product, however as with most cleansing oil/creams I’ve used, this leaves behind a greasy film and I really have to remove it with the cleanser.  I just wished it would rinse off a bit cleaner.

Overall, this wasn’t my favorite box but there’s always next month’s box.

What’s your opinion on February’s Birchbox?

  1. That OCC Lip Tar is hardcore! And actually this reminds me that I bought a little mini set from Sephora of OCC Lip Tars years ago… I haven’t even opened it. I need to find it first lol.
    I’d only join a beauty box if they promise to never send me 1) hotel sized hair care 2) perfume samples 😛

    • I’ve tried the OCC Lip Tar and the shade was intense. Lol, yeah sometimes beauty boxes can be a hot or miss. I don’t mind perfume samples but lately they haven’t been great for me. And yes, sometimes the hair samples are so tiny. I think you would like the PopSugar Must Have Box. It has a great mix of items and is one of the well-rounded boxes out there. 🙂
