Birchbox February 2015

This month, we again got the choice of three different samples, or a guest editor box. I chose Marcelle's Gentle Make-up Remover for sensitive eyes. This was also the Rent the Runway month, and all subscribers received $30.00 off a Rent the Runway rental of $75.00+! (Which I thought about using for my baby shower- they don't have maternity wear, but there are things that could work, but I didn't want to risk it and everything is also just a bit too fancy.)
I've changed the birchbox reviews up a bit, as well, like I did with ipsy.

Again, we get 60 points for this box- 10 points for every sample we review, and an additional 10 for sharing on twitter or facebook! This seems like a regular thing now, and like I said last month, this essentially makes Birchbox a $4/month box. I can't get over what an amazing deal that is!

And, I know... vertical pictures! I've made myself a note for next month to not take them vertical anymore. It's a learning process!
On to the box!

I really love this box, again! We were advised to keep our boxes all year, and I've already decided to repurpose mine to hold my samples in. I'll have to do an updated product organization blog soon to show you guys what I mean!

BeeKind Body Lotion
Made with honey and organic chamomile, this yummy UK fave sinks in to restore skin.
How To Use: Massage generously into skin.

Will I Use It?: I've been kind of obsessive about lotion lately- my skin has been pretty dry (a combo of pregnancy and winter), so I could always use another one! I haven't tried this yet, but it smells nice, and it's currently in line for me to try!

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner in Black
From the go-to UK eye makeup line, this user-friendly liquid liner goes on velvety smooth.
How To Use: Trace our upper lash line, or try your hand at a cat-eye.

Will I Use It?: I was so excited to see this in my box! I've heard nothing but good things about the Eyeko liners, and that they're fairly easy to use if you're a beginner with liquid liner, which I definitely am!

Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Cleanser
Made with organic botanicals, this hydrating wash declogs pores and brightens skin.

How To Use: Twice daily, massage onto damp skin. Rinse well and follow with moisturizer.
Will I Use It?: I have added it to my growing sample stock of cleansers that I can't currently use (I'm sticking to mostly natural products or low-ingredient products), but I'm excited about this, too!

Juice Couture Hollywood Royal
A floral scent with notes of candied apple, white petals, and cashmere wood.
How To Use: Spritz onto pulse points to feel walk-the-red-carpet glamorous.

Will I Use It?: I really, really like this scent. As a matter of fact, I think I have enjoyed every Juicy Couture fragrance I've ever smelled, and if you know me, you know I'm not much for perfumes. I plan on giving this a try on my days off (office policy is no strong scents, and I'm also a sensitive person myself to scents to I try to abide), and figure out if I should purchase it.

Marcelle Gentle Make-up Remover for Sensitive Eyes
Hypoallergenic formula that's tough on even long-lasting makeup, but gentle on the eyes.
How To Use It: Dispense onto cotton ball and wipe eyes to remove liner, shadow, and mascara.
Will I Use It?: This is the product I picked as my sample choice this month, and I am so happy I did! I've heard this was a really good product, but this was one-swipe good. And the day I tested this, I was wearing quite a bit of eye makeup, including waterproof mascara. And it didn't irritate my eyes at all. So far, I am super impressed and I already want to buy the full size. But I'll keep trying it first!

I am seriously so happy with this box! I like every product and can see myself using them all, and that hardly ever happens. Great job, Birchbox!
