Everyone who reads my blog will probably be sat there thinking "why birchbox when you are an avid fan of the Glossybox Claire". Well basically I signed up just before Christmas to get the special offer of 2 for £5 and I forgot to cancel the January box and by the time I remembered, well it was too late the money had already come out of my account haha.
I have now cancelled my Birchbox subscription so I won't be receiving the February box, which means I can go back to "shopping my stash" as I like to call it and start using up all the beauty/skincare products that I currently already own!
So let's take a look at what I received in my Birchbox this month:
The Beauty Crop: Glow Milk in Just Dew It
I hate to say it but I'm really not a fan of any type of liquid highlighter anymore, so I was kind of disappointed to see this inside of this months box, Will I attempt to try it? Probably not! So I may just give this away to someone who will actually use it instead of just throwing it away.
Eyeko - Sport Waterproof Mascara
There's not much to say about this product, to me mascara is simply just that... a mascara haha. This could be though because I can't actually use mascara as I literally have the most sensitive of eyes, and the slightest things make them really irritated. So my sister is claiming this one for herself which I don't mind, as it's something she uses daily, so it's not going to be going to waste with her having it.
Greenfrog Botanic - Argan Oil Body Lotion
During the colder month's of the year, I find my skin tends to get really dry, especially around my elbows, so I do love a nice moisturising body lotion. I already have a few lotions on the go at the minute though, so I will be adding this one into my skincare drawer to try at a later date.
Sebamed - Clear Face Gentle Scrub
I do love getting skincare products inside beauty boxes, as most of the time it is introducing me to brands that I have never heard of before. This one says it "removes oil, impurities and dirt to leave you with a healthy, happy complexion", so I will definitely be interested in testing this out very soon to see if it does just that.
Melusine - Jade Roller
This is the item in this months box that I was the most excited about, mainly because I have read some really good reviews about jade rollers in the past. It reduces puffiness in the morning as well as boosting radiance and tightening pores, it also says by rolling the tool across your forehead and under your cheekbones and jaw, it's a fast track to flawless skin. So I will be intrigued to see if I notice any difference in my skin after using this daily for a while.
