Birch Box- February

 

It’s February and time for another Birch Box review! This months boxes were retro themed with 3 different designs for the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. You could chose your own design but I let them choose for me and ended up with 70’s one (which was the one I did secretly want the most so was quite chuffed when it arrived!)

So here’s my verdict on the products I got this month:

Marcelle Gentle Make-up Remover– this is lovely, really gentle and removes eye make-up really easily with just a few dabs. However, after the magical gift of the Afterspa cloth last month this seems a bit inferior. I will however happily finish the sample!

ModelCo Conceal and Correct Green Concealer– I was really impressed with this concealer. I’m naturally very rosy, especially in the weather we’ve been having recently and it really helped to tone it down and cover blemishes. The green colour blends in well and lasted a while on top of my primer. A really winner for the rosy-cheeked folk.

Percy and Reed Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish– To be honest I was a little disappointed to see a hair finishing product in my box, I wouldn’t have really said I’m a hair finishing product kinda gal. I’m more, shampoo, condition, the occasional mask, and go. My hair is naturally curly, sometimes bordering on frizzy mess so not sure why I was so opposed to a finishing product really. I guess in my head and because of past experiences I just assumed they’d weigh the curls down and make my hair look a bit greasy and flat. This product however is a bit of a curl revelation. As directed I used a pea-sized amount and and evenly pulled it through my curls. I have been so impressed with what it does, it really takes them, making them smooth and sleek without weighing them down or making them looking greasy. It makes my hair much easier to style, even the day after I’ve used it. I really recommend this one!

The Beauty Crop Eyeshadow Trio- Love You So Latte- I feel like I’m drowning in nude and smokey brown eyeshadow palettes at the minute. I had 2 already and have received one with my last 2 Birch Boxes. This one has three different tones and are lovely colours. Applies really well, lasts through the day and the dinky size means it’s ideal for trips and holidays! But I think I’m eye paletted out for a while!

Luseta Beauty Coconut Milk Hair Mask- as well as smelling delicious this worked a treat. It made my hair so soft, shiny and healthy looking. I do like a hair mask and this is the best new one I’ve tried in a while! If you’re looking to perk your hair up a bit I’d definitely give this a go, I think I’ll be buying a full sized tub soon!

One Birch box subscriber perk is that once you review all the items in your monthly box on the app you’re awarded with free delivery from the Birch Box shop. May be a small gesture but it definitely helps if you’re fancying treating yourself. This month I bought a large sized This Works pillow spray which I wrote about in my New Years resolution post. I got a travel sized version in a set I got for Christmas and has been my favourite new product discovery so far this year (as well as the after spa make-up remover cloth), so I’ll be enjoying really good quality sleep for more months to come!
