February Birchbox Review

Is this my favorite Birchbox ever? Yeah I think so!

This month I opted for the curated box which was put together by Rent the Runway(a company I truly love) and I could not be happier.

I love seeing what's in the curated boxes (if you don't know, Birchbox, every month features a "special curated box" that has a special guest editor that you can opt to choose instead of your regular box. The difference is that you know exactly what comes in the curated box) and I really loved what I saw in this box and wanted to try the samples so I opted for this one.

Once I saw people receiving their boxes, I got even more excited because the size of the samples looked awesome and I loved the design of the box. It has to be the most beautiful box I've ever seen. Light pink, flowers, and the Rent the Runway & Birchbox logo... it's just so feminine and pretty.



When I received the box and opened it, I don't think I've ever been more excited. I was just so happy! Even though I already knew what samples I was getting, I was still super stoked.



As an added bonus, RTR gave all Birchbox subscribers $30 off a $75 rental. I will surely be trying to use that! 

Let's see what was inside my February Birchbox, shall we?


//derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Glycolic Scrub: I haven't gotten into anti aging products yet but I love a good scrub. This is just as good as I thought it'd be. My skin feels super soft, clean, and totally clear of any dirt. After I use this, my face almost feels as soft as it does when I use my Clarisonic. It's a fabulous exfoliator. 

Full Size: $12.95
Sample Size: 4/5

//Fekkai Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo: Give me all the dry shampoo, PLEASE. I always see to get one in my Birchbox when my other bottle runs out. It has such a fine mist, which I adore because it doesn't come out too hard, and the smell is awesome—one of the best smelling dry shampoos I've ever used. It seems to work really good so I'm excited.

Full size: $10-20
Sample Size: 5/5

//Not Soap, Radio Body Wash-The Stuff that Cupid dips his arrow in: Can we talk about that name? Perfect for Valentines Day but my goodness it's long. I was excited about this but the smell isn't all that fragrant and doesn't really do anything for me but it's a body wash so how bad could it really be?

Full size: $16
Sample Size: 4/5

//Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner: THIS IS THE BEST EYELINER EVER. Holy crap. It came in navy blue and it looks so beautiful on the lid. It's not too blue that you look silly wearing it but not too dark that it looks black. It's super creamy, smooth, and blends really well. I'm obsessed and so is my mom...so obsessed that she made me order two full size eyeliners, one for me in the navy (and she took my sample) and one for her in plum. I've been wanting to experiment with colored eyeliners and these are just awesome.

Full size $11
Sample Size: 4/5

//theBalm Read my Lips: I think I may have been most excited for this product. I've been really getting into lip products lately but haven't really ventured to see what lip glosses there are on the market. I'm not a huge lip gloss lover but this is different. It's very opaque and gives the nicest pink/coral color to your lips without being overly shiny. My favorite part is how long it lasts on my lips and how NOT STICKY it is. Sticky lipgloss is the worst but this one is awesome.

Full size: $15
Sample Size: 4/5

This Birchbox hit it out of the park and I could not be happier!

What'd you get in your Birchbox this month?
