Sharing Great Finds With You!

Birchbox – February

on February 21, 2014

It’s the month of LOVE!
And this month’s Birchbox is full of great finds!

Birchbox teamed up with Us Weekly and I this month they knocked it out of the park.

February’s Theme:  Step And Repeat

Can you tell I had a little fun with the photo?
I do so love Valentine’s Day 🙂

What’s in the box this month…

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black
Retail $19.50 for .38 fl oz / 11 ml – Sample Value $7.09 for .14 fl oz / 4 ml

I love getting mascara!  I have not purchased a full tube in over a year now.
When I first opened this I was shocked at how big the brush is!
It lengthened my lashes and the brush did an awesome job at providing
volume without clumps.  Very happy with this find.

Agave Healing Oil Treatment
Retail $24 for 2 fl oz / 59 ml or $40 for 4 fl oz / 118 ml
Sample Value $1.63 for .1 fl oz / 4 ml

I have very course wavy hair with a mind of it’s own.
When it cooperates it looks amazing…
buuuut, when it doesn’t, I look as though I was playing with a fork and a light socket!

I have used this two days in a row and my hubby noticed right away.
Keeps my curls looking great without any frizz.
I found it on Amazon for $17 for 4 fl oz – so I may have to grab a bottle.

Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy in Morelia Monarch
Retail $14 for 6 oz / 170 g – Sample Value $.66 for .28 oz / 8 g

When I first opened this I was a little worried about the scent.  It’s strong.
However, it is also heady and intoxicating.  A mix of green tea, amber and vanilla.
I really love the scent.

Okay, but how does it feel…
My hands feel silky smooth – it’s crazy how great this works!!
I was kind of sad about the size – but very little goes a long way.
If strong scents freak you out, they do offer an unscented version on their website.

Ruby Wing in Ride ‘Em Cowgirl
Retail $10 for .5 fl oz / 15 ml – Sample Value $4.67 for .25 fl oz / 7 ml

I love nail polish – but hate the way it feels on my finger nails.  So my toes are always painted.
The day I got this it was storming outside and the polish didn’t do anything.
Enter the huge wind storm that night…
Next day – bright beautiful sunshine!  Note the picture of the bottle sitting in the sun.

Put this on my nail to show you how it looks inside and outside.  This is just one coat.
I really dig the color it turned.  A pretty pinkish red.
This is going to be fun this summer!!

Smashbox Full Exposure Pallette
Retail $49 for 14 shades – Sample Value $.25 for 10 shades

This is a card with one time use (if that) of each shade.
Birchbox does not count this as an actual sample, but a ‘Beauty Extra’
Each shade comes in a shimmer and a matte.  They are nice basic shades.

Total Value for my February Birchbox – $14.30

While not a high value box – it was the first I have received in a long time that I
genuinely loved everything in it.  I will definitely purchase the full size products
of Agave and Camille Beckman.
