February Birchbox Review!

Hi everyone!

My morning was brightened up today by the arrival of the February Birchbox! This month’s box was all about London Fashion Week and includes products aimed at giving you a quick boost during a hectic schedule.

So here’s what I received in this month’s Birchbox ....
Gerda Spillman Bio Fond Cream Foundation (Full sized - £20)

I was really pleased to see a makeup product in the February Birchbox as I have been getting more skin care and hair products in my beauty boxes recently so this made a nice change. This is a light, creamy foundation that transforms to a powder finish and costs £20 for the full sized version. The shade is slightly dark for me but it seems to blend in quite nicely so hopefully the colour will look ok. This in my favourite item that was included in the box and I’m looking forward to trying it out.

Nick Chavez Beverly Hills Plump ‘n’ Thick Leave-In Thickening Mist (Full sized - £13.90)

This is a leave in treatment aimed at thickening and volumising hair without making it sticky and matted. I don’t tend to use thickening or volumising products as the ones I have used have made my hair feel horrible, sticky and straw-like but I have heard good things about Nick Chavez products so maybe this one will be different. I like trying out new hair products so I’m looking forward to giving it a go and seeing how I get on.

Korres Guava Shower Gel (Full sized - £8)

This shower gel smells absolutely gorgeous and is meant to hydrate your skin as well as clean. I have so many shower gels to get through at the moment that I maybe would have liked to see a different product but I guess I’ll always need shower gel and will get round to using them all at some point!

Vichy Thermal Spa Water (Full sized - £7)

I haven’t really got any products like this one so I was pleased to find it included in this month’s box. The Vichy Thermal Spa Water is a multi-purpose product which can be used as a toner, to set makeup or to provide a refreshing mist throughout the day. I sprayed it on top of my makeup and it did feel nice and refreshing and I think it would be a nice product to take on holiday for this reason. I haven’t had it on long enough so determine whether or not it has set my makeup but I will try it out over the next few days and let you know how I get on :)

Birchbox Eyelash Curler – Beauty Extra (£10)

I thought this was a really good beauty extra and was happy to see it included in the box as I really need a new set of lash curlers. I have had mine for so long that they are starting to look a bit worse for wear so this was a perfect item for me.

EBoost Natural Energy Booster – Lifestyle Extra (Full sized - £20.99 for 20 sachets)

I could always do with a quick energy boost these days when running round from one place to another so I am hoping this energy booster drink can work its magic. It is completely natural and made from minerals, vitamins and super-nutrients and if it does work I will be tempted to buy the full sized product, even though it is a little pricey at £20.99 for twenty sachets.

Overall I am really happy with the February Birchbox and will get use out of all of the products that I have received. I think this is one of the few beauty boxes I have received where there haven’t been any products that I’ve not liked!

What did you guys think of the February Birchbox? Did you get the same products or something different?

Thanks for reading xx

  2. Yeah I was really pleased with this foundation, they do the petite size which is what I got in the box and a larger size version on their website. I do like it but I don't think I would go out and buy it again - I like my Double Wear too much!

    Thanks for commenting :) I will take a look at your blog too!
