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! ūüôā

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.
