Reviewing Birchbox: My February Box

As I mentioned in my January Birchbox review, I decided to stick with the subscription for a few months to see if I find any new beauty favorites. I figured, I enjoyed last month’s box, so why not try it again for just $10 more!

Once again, I checked out their Sneak Peek video and got super excited:

As soon as I saw the video, I knew I wanted to try that mystery brand moisturizing sea salt spray. I love letting my hair air dry in the spring/summer/fall/whenever it’s not butt cold out. I’ve used a couple different sea salt sprays, but unless I mix them with other products they tend to make my hair a little crunchy. Well, Birchbox emailed their subscribers before shipping the boxes out and I clicked through in two shakes of a lambs tail to make sure I was able to get that magical spray!

Let’s see what I got in my February box:

PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray {Full-size, $24}
This is that special Birchbox exclusive sea salt spray the ladies were talking about in the video and I was super excited to try it out! According to the directions you can either spray this on damp hair, or mist your dry hair. It took me a few times to get the hang of it, but if I spray it on my damp hair and let it dry without touching it AT ALL, I end up with some pretty waves. It also smells great, so I like it!

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant {Full-size, $26}
I’ve never tried a liquid skin exfoliant before, so this was an interesting addition to my box. I’m pretty satisfied with my skin care routine though, especially with the addition of last month’s exfoliant. I think I’ll be giving this one to one of my friends to enjoy.

Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Shower Gel {Full-size, $16}
I love that Birchbox included a shower gel in my box. When I travel, I enjoy taking pretty smelling shower gels with me so that I don’t have to worry about packing perfume. This one is a great size AND a great scent, so it’s a winner!

theBalm cosmetics Read My Lips Lip Gloss – BAM! {Full-size, $15}
The color of this lip gloss is pretty and can be worn on its own or layered over lipstick. I’m wearing the gloss in this picture over the Pixi lip balm I received in last month’s Birchbox:

The problem is that the lip gloss feels kind of sticky on my lips. I’m more of a chapstick girl, so having a sticky lip gloss is just not going to do it for me. The color IS pretty though, so it’s such a shame. Glad I tried it though.

Juicy Couture Hollywood Royal Perfume {Full-size $72}
When I think of Juicy Couture I think of pink velour track suits with “juicy” emblazoned across someone’s butt. Pretty much the opposite of my personal style. I sniffed this sample with an open mind though and… BLEGH. Nope.

Once again, I went online into my Birchbox account and left feedback for each item. After just two Birchbox deliveries, I’ve already accumulated 100 points, which is good for $10 in their shop towards full-sized merchandise. I have my eye on a liquid eye liner that I’ve been wanting to try, so I’ll be placing an order pretty soon.

For my fellow Birchbox subscribers, what did you get this month?
