My February Birchbox was a big win! February is my birthday month, so I’m probably overly excited about everything in general, but I really was happy about this box. I only got one sample that I won’t use!
Sample #1: Dasein Winter
The ‘minimalist designer’ in me is OBSESSED with the simplicity of this brand’s marketing. The colors, the fonts…everything is so soft and pretty! The scent itself is really nice too – a little on the woodsy side for me, but with just enough fruit/flower notes to tone it down.
Sample #2: Not Soap, Radio Body Wash
Click the link to see the names of the different scents! I love creative marketing, and this box was full of it. I definitely got a good laugh out of it, but I’m not sure I want to spend $16 on body wash…
Sample #3: PARLOR® by Jeff Chastain Detangling Leave-In Conditioner
This is the one sample that I’m not going to use. I almost feel guilty not using it, but at the same time, I’m so sold on my MONAT stuff that I haven’t used any other brand on my hair since October! I wasn’t sure what to do with them for awhile, but some of my girls on Facebook suggested that I donate them to a women’s shelter – and I’m going to do just that!
Sample #4: ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm
I was the BIGGEST skeptic about this! I had the chance to pick one of my samples for this box, and I chose this lip balm because I was intrigued about the possibility of watching my lips change color (while, albeit, also nervous that it would turn my mouth 80’s bubblegum pink). The balm is really smooth and felt so moisturizing, and it left the tiniest amount of shine too, like lip gloss but not sticky! The color change was pretty subtle, but I’m definitely a fan. The real miracle will be if I can actually finish the entire tube without losing it.
Sample #5: (MALIN+GOETZ) clarifying clay mask
I LOVE masks. They are one of my favorite things to sample, and I’ve never used one I didn’t like! (MALIN+GOETZ) hasn’t failed me yet, so I’m excited to try this out.
Stay tuned for next month’s box!
