#Birchbox February Review Featuring #DateNight Editor Box


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

I am so happy about my Birchbox February boxes which includes the Date Night (which I purchased) and my Surprise w/ selected Whish sample!!

I decided to buy the Date Night Birchbox because I decided to treat myself on Valentine's Weekend since I am single mom (I am single for 11 yrs which is how old my son is but I won't compromise myself nor my child to satisfied immature "male" !). So I  received this box in the mail days before Valentine's Day which had these items:

Obessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Strumpet (Full-size, $15)

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator (Full-size, $28)

Whish Renewing Mud Mask (Full-size, $44)

Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray (Full-size, $24)

Catherine Malandrino Romance de Provence (Full-size, $65-110)

A favorite hair product, Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray (Full-size, $24) works great for blow drying my relaxed hair straight as well as light hold hairspray after styling!

I love Whish products from Birchbox so I can't wait to try out  Whish Renewing Mud Mask (Full-size, $44) on my face!

I loving this lip tar especially the berry red color and the peppermint oil Obessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Strumpet (Full-size, $15)! I was worry about being a "matte" but it doesn't dry out my dry lips!!

Although this scent isn't for everyone especially the younger Birchbox followers, I love this evening scent perfume of  Catherine Malandrino Romance de Provence (Full-size, $65-110). I doubt that I will buy the full size bottle at this time!

This Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator (Full-size, $28) sample is another going to exchange/donate box! #SorryNotSorry

Except for the Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator (I get this from time to time but its not the right type of highlighter for me), I used everything towards my Valentine's Day Weekend look!!

I received my Surprise Birchbox w/ selected Whish sample on the day before Valentine's Day that I was so excited to arrive in my mailbox!! Even my son, Nathan, knows that his Mom received something special in the mailbox!  Along with my selected Whish Revitalizing Cleansing Oil (Full-size, $30) sample I also received these items:

Hey Honey Take it Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask (Full-size, $29)

JUARA Candlenut Body Creme (Full-size, $38)

ModelCo Lip Enchancer Illusion Lip Liner (Full-size, $20)

PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Detangling Leave-In Conditioner (Full-size, $24)

I tried out the nude brown lip liner on Valentine's Day to outline my lips before using the Lip Tar on my lips for my Valentine's Day look!

I can't wait to try out this product on my relaxed/dry hair and give an honest opinion on it!! I know the ladies of Birchbox loves PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Detangling Leave-In Conditioner (Full-size, $24) !!

I love Whish skincare products and can't wait to see how Whish Revitalizing Cleansing Oil (Full-size, $30) removes makeup off my face!

This was another selected sample choice that I declined for the Whish Sample but now I also get to try Hey Honey Take it Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask (Full-size, $29) !! I will tell you soon how I love this honey mask!

I have already tried JUARA Candlenut Body Creme (Full-size, $38) before but I will use this "lotion" on my dry winter skin!

I can't wait to continue using and try out samples in both of my Birchboxes for February!! What did you receive this month and what are were your favorites?

Until next time..

  1. So funny how we all have different product preferences. The Illuminator was the only product in the Date Night box that I will use. Ursula, can you explain how Birchbox works to me? I don't get it. Did you choose one of the boxes are your subscription box, and then buy the second one? I'm flummoxed by the arcane way in which Birchbox operates.

    1. Since I am Birchbox Aces (make 500 pts in a year) I got a early choice but I was able to select the Surprise Birchbox with Whish sample! Then a few days later, I purchase the Date Night box in the shop ($10 for Birchsubscribers, $15 for everybody else)!! But once you get your monthly box, go online to Birchbox and select the item in your box and "Write a Review" which is 10 Birchbox pts (that's 50 pts). Let me know if you have any questions.

  2. Thanks, Ursula! I didn't know you could buy extra and/or different boxes. And I didn't know you got early access and different choices if you had a higher level of points. I've got a ways to go since I have only 137 points

  3. I have yet to try this box. I hear really good things about it, but I guess it's like any other box, sometimes you get something good and sometimes you don't.

  7. From one blue ridge gal to another, you look fabulous with your V-Day look! I especially love the lip stain. You can't go wrong with a lippie with built in peppermint oil!
