February Birchbox 2014

february birchbox

It’s Birchbox time!! (TMI: My Birchbox ALWAYS comes when it’s ‘that time of the month’) For February, Birchbox teamed up with Us Weekly. I think because it’s awards season? I’ll start off by saying this box was not very good. There just isn’t anything I’m super excited to try…but maybe I’ll fall in love with something! I was hoping the February Birchbox would be Valentine themed, but I guess that would have been too obvious.

I’ll start with what I’m most excited about. The Serge Normant Dry Conditioner. The morning of the day I got my Birchbox, I was using dry shampoo and thinking “do they make dry conditioner?” I guess they do! This dry conditioner us supposed to be used on the ends of the hair to add silkiness and soften the hair. I have been having some really dry ends lately, maybe this will be my savior.

The second thing I’m most interested to try is the Benefit It’s Potent! Eye cream. I really don’t need a new eye cream, I have so many. But, I’ve heard about this one, and it comes in this super adorable little jar, so I’m interested to try it. It has a pretty strong fragrance, which seems odd for an eye cream. Hopefully my eyes don’t burn!

Now, let’s talk about annoying packaging.

I hate perfume samples. Hate, hate, hate. This Juicy Couture Couture La La Malibu perfume smells very juvenile, like a Victoria’s Secret body mist. I think I’ll keep it around, and maybe use during a weekend at the beach over the summer…but I’m just really not a fan of Juicy Couture Perfume.

In a Goodebox I received a lip balm from W3LL People, and here we have a Universalist Multi Use Color Stick in #8 Dusty Rose. As you all know, I’m really interested in all natural products, but I’m not interested in difficult to use tiny samples, or ‘color sticks’. I guess I can just use it as a lip color, but I’m not sure the color looks good on me.

Lastly, also from Benefit, a sample of the new BB Cream(?) called Big Easy. This sample is maybe just big enough to use once. I’m honestly not completely sure the use of this product. I think it is like a BB Cream, but goes on white and adjusts to your shade. I have a million products like this. Now I have a million and one.

So, the February Birchbox was alright, but I’m not in love. For a few months Birchbox was on par, so we will see how it goes over the next few months.

What did you get? Are you excited about any of your products?

  1. I got the Benefit Big Easy sample too and was disappointed. I can’t even tell how good or not the product was because the sample was enough to cover maybe half my face. Completely useless!

  2. I haven’t received my February Birchbox yet but hope I do not receive the Benefit Big Easy sample because I received the same super small sample in a magazine that I receive monthly. Sorry your V-Day box was not so happy 😦

  3. I think the snow delayed me getting my Birchbox 😦 I to try cditioner!! I have the dry shampoo from the same brand although its not that great, but does smell good lol I think I’m going to go peek and see what I’m getting 🙂

  4. Ah, this is really interesting. I saw your post on twitter and assumed you were a UK blogger, but it was great to see what US subscribers got! I think our Feb box was better than yours, but it’s nice that you got a Benefit product, I haven’t even heard of that cream before. The Dry Conditioner sounds interesting too. xx
