Birchbox Unboxing - Feb '15

Every month, for over a year now, I receive a Birchbox. This is a beauty subscription service which consists of 5 deluxe samples for only £10.00 (+£2.95 for postage)! It's perfect for any beauty lover to try out different products including skincare, haircare, perfume and make-up. Little extras, such as food and vouchers, are also included. And, if you're lucky enough, you may even get a full-sized product! 

Anyway, every month I will be sharing my box with all of you. I hope you enjoy!

Every Birchbox has a theme. This month was 'Birchbox Loves...', following the trend of Valentines Day which I thought was super cute. In the brief outline that comes with the box, it mentions that it includes all of Birchbox's favourites for the month. 

This month, I received;
  • Liz Earle - Botanical Shine Shampoo (worth £10 full size)
  • theBalm - Staniac (worth £10 full size)
  • Caudalie - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum (worth £45 full size)
  • Wild About Beauty - Golden Skin Glow (full size! worth £21)
  • London Butterflies - Body Butter Souffle (worth £37 full size)
  • EXTRA The Chia Co - Oats and Chia (worth £4.95 for a pack of 5)
Below are my first impressions of the products;
  • Botanical Shine Shampoo - I have been using Liz Earle products for ages now but have never gotten around to trying out their hair products. I was obviously really excited when I saw this inside my box. I can't wait to try it!
  • Staniac - Hmm, I'm not really sure what to think about this. From the outside, the colour of the product looks beautiful but when I swatched it on my hand, it came out as a very sheer pink. It is described as a lip and cheek stain but because I like full pigmentation on my lips, I will probably use this on my cheeks. 
  • Vinoperfect Radiance Serum - This brand is often inside the Birchbox. Luckily, I've never received a sample of the same product but it would be nice to get some other brands. Although, I always welcome skincare products!
  • Golden Skin Glow - I'm very eager to try this. I'm so used to wearing powders that I need to start trying some cream formulas. Although the swatch came out slightly darker than what I would usually wear, it's nothing a little blending can't fix!
  • Body Butter Souffle - The packaging of this is so so beautiful and it smells divine! Definitely putting this on my nightstand so I can use it regularly.
  • Oats and Chia - I love love love porridge!
I am very very happy with this box! All the products are something that I would use so it means no gifting. I would give it a 8/10.
