February Birchbox

February's Birchbox is one you are definitely going to want this month - trust me! it's amazing and by far the best box I have received in the whole 15 months I have been subscribed...excited much!

First off Birchbox have come up with a new slimmer box which fits right through your letterbox, so now there is no fear of missing the courier if you are out. Don't worry because the sample sizes are not compromised!.
Here is a picture to show the difference in box sizes..

So now for the big reveal!!

Inside this months box you get ..

Liz Earle - Botanical Shine Shampoo 50ml
I was so excited to see this in my box, I am a massive fan of Liz Earle skincare and I've always been curious of the hair and body products. I tried this the other day and it was really lovely to use. It has a beautiful, uplifting, spa like scent and left my hair soft and shiny. I am now thinking of buying the shampoo and conditioner.
It's perfect for all hair types and contains lovely, natural active ingredients such as Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, West African Shea Butter, Apple and Orange extracts.

Full Size - £10

T London - Darjeeling Hand & Body Lotion 50ml
The brand T London isn't familiar to me, but this hand and body lotion is actually really nice - especially slathering it on after my workout. It has this really nice slightly floral tea scent to it that I just find very refreshing. It also leaves my skin lovely and soft while sinking in pretty much straight away with no greasy residue.

Full Size - £6.50

Caudalie - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum 10ml
I always like a new serum to try, especially one that claims to brighten and boost radiance. Plus Caudalie is a well known and loved skincare brand, so I was very happy to see this in the February Birchbox.

Full Size - £45

The Balm - Cindy-Lou Manizer  0.57g
For me, this was the best addition to the box! I bought The Balm's ever-so-famous Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter from the Birchbox E-Shop a month or so ago, and I absolutely adore it! so to find a sample of another shade is fabulous. The Cindy-Lou Manizer one has the same amazing finish and cute packaging, but with more of a pink tone to it where as Mary-Lou manizer is more of a champagne shade...and just how cute is that sample!?.

Do I need another highlighter? ..No! - will I end up buying this full size? .. More than likely! haha.

Full Size  - £15

Cynthia Rowley Beauty 0.8g
I don't really use eyeliners much so this didn't really excite me at first. But then I swatched it on the back of my hand....woah! probably the silkiest liner ever! plus it didn't budge.
I hardly had to press down, it just glides on and it's a very intense black too. I have not heard of the brand Cynthia Rowley Beauty before but I would be interested to see what else is in the range if the quality is this good!.

Full Size - £11

Lifestyle Extra - The Chia Co - Oats and Chia
If you knew how excited I was to see this in my box you would probably think I was strange. If you follow me on instagram @zoelou_ you will know how I have a slight obsession with oats and porridge for breakfasts, I am also always adding chia seeds to it. So when I spotted this sachet with both of them combined along with dried berries and coconut oil I was in heaven.
I am stalking the Birchbox E-Shop constantly just so I can go buy a box and try the other flavours.

£4.95 for a pack of 5

  1. I love the look of this month's box - I'm especially glad they've made the boxes smaller! There's a couple of things in here i'd love to try, especially the Liz Earle shampoo and TheBalm Highlighter.
