FEBRUARY BIRCHBOX 2018 WHERE TRUE BEAUTY IS TIMELESS

1 comment:

This beauty box edition focused on Birchbox's favourite timeless trends. Reminiscing and bringing back classic pieces can only refresh our minds.

February Birchbox 2018 edition flatlay

I am a great fan of products that have such an importance to be still present in this ever changing trending cosmetics market.

This edition I received included 3 full sized products and two sample sized ones.

THE BEAUTY CROP

February Birchbox 2018 edition flatlay with beauty crop closed mini palette

Retailing at £7 and its the full size product.

This mini eye palette is brilliant to keep handy in your handbag on the go thanks to it's portable size.
It has THE BEAUTY CROP logo encase in a square on the front of the plastic compact. Within it there is a trio of earthy tones. These pigments are part of their coffee inspired collection. The coffee component was included to increase brightness and reduce puffiness in the eye area.

It is possible to create a soft smokey eye with depth and definition.

Can you believe that this is a palette they were using in the 70s? I find this fact mesmerizing and the fact that they are as pigmented as palettes on the market now blows me away. 

There was no fallout with use. 
This format reminds me of the new SMASHBOX mini palette trios.

I had never heard about this brand but if you look on their website you will end up purchasing everything. The packaging is beautiful and if their products are as great as this one, I am so excited to see more.

MODELco - GREEN CONCEALER

February Birchbox 2018 edition flatlay with model co conceal and correct green concealer

Retailing at £14 and its the full size product.

This concealer is green and waxy in consistency. It is quite easy to blend out and does cover imperfections such as redness just make sure that when you apply it you buff it out first to not give those zones a green coloration once you apply your foundation or concealer. I noticed that if you don't do that and you have light to medium coverage foundation or concealer the green will come through.

PERCY & REED - QUITE FRANKLY FLAWLESS FINISHING POLISH 

February Birchbox 2018 edition flatlay with percy and reed quite frankly flawless finishing polish

Retailing at £10 for the full size product, this is the sample size.

As per al Percy & Reed products it has that sweet distinctive aroma to it. Having a creamy consistency it is best a small amount is used through the hair.

It is a lightweight product which leaves hair smelling sweet and looking smooth. I enjoyed this particular product as I am one of those who dyes their hair and do need a good hair moisturiser to get that extra shine through it.

Very light weight product and love to be honest the sample size as I can carry it everywhere with me.

"I love this particular product from Percy & Reed."

LUSETA - COCONUT HAIR MASK 

February Birchbox 2018 edition flatlay with luseta coconut hair mask

Retailing at £32 for the full size product, this is the sample size.

The hair mask is of a creamy consistency and has a delightful coconut smell to it. 

Being designed for dry and colour treated hair as well as normal hair. It is great to leave onto hair for 5 minutes and then rinse. It promises to leave hair soft, silky and protected. 

I found that after use my hair took well to it. I smelled divine, I had a shine and in terms of protection I have no specific way to test this aspect of it but do hope it performs in this sense too. 

"Great and useful product to add to your hair routine."

PIXI - SHEA BUTTER LIP BALM IN PIXI PINK

February Birchbox 2018 edition flatlay with pixi shea butter lip balm

Retailing at £8 for this full size product.

I would say that this lip balm has quite a fuchsia pink colour to it. 

"It is highly pigmented and moisturising."

Lip balms are essential in your daily lip routine especially if like me you suffer from very dry lips.

I wear it around the house but this particular shade does not suit me. I would have much preferred a more neutral or nude colour.

It smells exactly like the old school Nivea lip balms, with that particular shea butter scent.

CHEERZ - 10 FREE RETRO PHOTO PRINTS


I received a code to use in order to get 10 free retro prints. You do have to pay a £2 delivery fee.

I haven't redeemed this later yet.


Out of all the products provided the one I thought I would be most impressed with was the Pixi Lip Balm, however I would have to say that I was content with all the different brands provided.

This months subscription was truly worth it.
It does help that there were 3 FULL SIZE products available in mine.


I did find that not everyone gets the same products as they cater differently to your needs ,depending on the information you provide them with on your profile.


You may chose to subscribe to their MONTHLY beauty box which retails at £10 plus £2.95 in delivery charges.


Otherwise you may chose to purchase the above products from the link below.
