|February 2015 Birchbox*|
I would wait until towards the end of February to talk about the beauty boxes from the month, but my Birchbox has arrived super early so... I'm here now!
Birchbox have decided to introduce the option of slimmer boxes that will fit through a standard sized letterbox, meaning no more 'sorry you were out' delivery cards. Samples in both the large and slimmer boxes will be exactly the same, but in the latter the drawstring bag has been replaced with tissue paper.
In the box...
»» Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum
»» Cynthia Rowley Eyeliner in Black
»» T London Hand & Body Lotion
»» Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo
»» The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer
»» The Chia Co. Oats + Chia
What I Think...
A nice box. I don't think I'm really wowed by anything, but that might change once I've tried everything. I don't wear eyeliner but it'll be finding its way over to someone who will use it very soon. The lotion and the shampoo will both come in handy & they'll absolutely be used, but I'm not excited by them.
The serum is really beautiful, Caudalie is a wonderful brand and I would expect nothing less from them. It's a shame the highlight is so tiny because I think it might be difficult to get a brush in there, but it looks gorgeous. And finally there's the lifestyle extra, chia oats. I know the oats would be a healthier option but when it comes to breakfast I'm definitely a toast person!
