february 2013 birchbox

dr jart beauty balm

color club wild cactus

twistband headband

i was a little disappointed this month because the body gel that came in my birchbox leaked all over everything! BUT…i was excited to see that this months box was full of products to get you red carpet ready. perfect theme for the month of february with all of the award shows this month! here is what i got:

color club nail polish in “wild cactus”: my favorite item from this months box…obvi, right?!?!

dr jart + black label detox beauty balm: i used to use dr jarts bb daily until i tried boscia bb. i gave this one a go today and it didn’t seem to moisturize as much as my boscia bb does. which is weird because my boscia bb is oil-free. dr jart’s bb’s may just be a little chalky for my dry skin. does that make sense? lol

skin & co roma olive & sicilian orange body gel: i guess i can’t be too bummed about this one leaking because the scent is a little too masculine for my taste.

twistband headband: you guys probably know by now that i love twistband hair ties so i am pretty happy about this headband. especially since i like to use headbands to hold my hair back when i wash my face every night.

extra treat – ghiradelli caramel & chocolate square: one word. DELISH. i buy the dark chocolate squares for my hubby all of the time and now i’m pretty sure i NEED these for me. now.

if you aren’t familiar with birchbox (where the heck have you been? j/k), it is a monthly subscription service that delivers a curated box of beauty product samples for just $10/mo. occasionally they even include full-size products. i’ve been a subscriber for over a year now and i never get tired of getting my box in the mail each month. you can join here.

    I received the gel too and thought it was way too masculine and had a scent an 80 year old woman might like. although to give it credit, it left my skin soft.

    I love beauty boxes. I would love to get Birchbox, but they don’t ship to Canada.

    That polish is gorgeous! I got a good Birchbox this month, but I really wish that polish would have been in it. Jealous!

    Nail color is super cute – I can’t get enough of the non traditional pinks and reds for the upcoming spring season. It’s all about the blues, purples, oranges, and greens for our manis!
