Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, that doesn’t mean we can’t keep the love flowing. Celebrating my  Black History and my monthly beauty subscriptions is a double win for me. Yesterday I shared with you February  Allure Beauty Box…and I had mixed feelings with that box…I’ll know where I stand once I try out the samples. As to say all that is because I received my Birchbox yesterday and was very anxious to open it up…since I didn’t see the sneak peek. Upon opening the outer box my heart was racing a mile a second cause the January box was awesome…and I was hoping I get a repeat. The packaging was very beautiful with abstract heart design.

I remove the top and there’s this kicker card with a nice note from the Birchbox team sending sample love ☺. Very nice touch- seening it was the day of love. This was definitely giving me a glimmer of hope that this box is going to be terrific. 

I’m unboxing this and sharing with you guys. So I haven’t seen anything since I opened the outer box. I just threw this in my work bag to show you guys today. So we all are getting a first hand look.

Ok…not the bees knees that I was expecting… guess I’m feeling  this box out. One of my favorite samples is included in this box…good thing too…I was running out. I see a facial peel…and we know how I love peels & masks. 

I’m a sucker for a good facial mask / peel and this so happends to be a fruit peel. Acure Organics Purifying Fruit Peel has active enzymes from papaya, bitter cherry, and blue agave work in just 5 minutes to transform dull skin into that glowing complexion we all want. Full size bottle cost $22.99

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle is a best-seller…this elixir locks in color, protects from heat damage, and adds silkiness to each strand. Full-size bottle cost $23.50

Definitely love a good scent…and this is just what I meant…my first time hearing about Catherine Malandrino fragrance…receiving a sample makes it just that much better for me to test it. An ode to Provence, a timeless scent mixed with fruity and flora nuances with vanilla and patchouli. I love patchouli oil.

This is most definitely a favorite of mines. I first received a sample of this in my BeautyBox5 and been hooked since. Personally I feel every woman should have this in her beauty arsenal. A makeup Artist fave…Embryolisse is a french moisturizer that heals dryness and preps skin for foundation. Full-size $28

Another product I received from BeautyBox5 once before. Wasn’t a big fan of these. Gave my daughter the first one. I didn’t find this nourishing at all to my lips. In fact the color didn’t last startex to fade over the day. Guss I’ll be giving this away as well.  Full-size is $14.95

Still on the fence about this box too. Don’t get me wrong it has a few items I will keep…the others I may pass it along. I will try them and render my decision. Have you received this month Birchbox…if so, please share what you liked or didn’t.  Until next time…stay gorgeous moonpies.💋
