February Brichbox : love your style

 

Alot was hanging on this months Birchbox, as I had been underwhelmed with the last couple of months boxes and felt I was wasting money. February's box was the dealbreaker - and to be honest, I'm quite happy with this months box!  The products in this months box are something in quite interested in using and probably will all be used up,unlike other samples I've received which loiter in a draw for 12 months til I decide it is time for them to depart to the dustbin. 

This months theme was 'Love Your Style' because it is London Fashion Week this month. I sorta get where they are coming from, but I think I would have preferred to see a more valentines day themed box. 

Nontheless I was more than happy to see a couple of favorite brands in the box, as well as some new products. 

Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Maneater 
I was extremely happy to see this as I have used a Leighton Denny polish before and loved it - the quality is soo good! I have been missing a good quality black from my collection, and this fits that hole nicely. I've already got some ideas for some nail designs to do with this, which will be up in the next week or so!

Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner
You know I love mini versions of this - this mini eyeliner is soooo adorable! I have used this in the past and loved it, although it did dry out rather quickly as it is a felt tip pen type applicator. Hopefully the same wont happen to this one! I'm trying to perfect winged eyeliner so i can start wearing it more, so I'm glad I've got this to practice! 

Urban Veda Natural Skincare Radiance Exfoliating Facial Polish
Ive recently finished my  Benefit B. Right facial polish, so it will be nice to try something new. Definitely not an essential product for me - but a nice treat! 

Gilchrist & Soames Shower Gel 
Normally this would really annoy me because i hate getting things like body wash and lotion in these boxes BUT - I've recently booked a summer holiday, so little samples like this will definitely come in handy for traveling! 

Beauty Protector Protect & Oil
I have literally just used my last drop of hair oil, so this is a welcome sample. The sample is abit on the small side, but the oil seems abit this to me, so I'm guessing I wont need as much per application. This also smells delish, I cant wait to use it! 

So Birchbox.... You've redeemed yourself. I'm going to stick around because you mentioned that you've partnered with Lulu Guinness for March's box...You tease!
