February is a month that I wish we could skip. It’s not because of Valentine’s Day, I’m not single and I have a valentine. February is a quiet reminder that another year has passed without Charlie. Not to mention February is usually cold as fuck in Minnesota. Lots of snow and cold tempatures leave this girl dreaming of spring. Ahh spring, hurry your ass up and get here! I am tired of freezing my pretty little ass off.
I know, I know I should quit bitching about the cold because hey winter is only temporary! Yay! It’s only temporary and soon the sun will shine and it will be all sorts of hot again!
Anyways back to this month’s Birchbox! “What’s the occasion,” fits the month of February perfectly! “This month, we’re helping you create your own not-quite-everyday looks, from easy hairstyles to versatile makeup techniques.” All of us wether you are coupled or single have a reason to dress up and hit the town! Or if you’re like me, you get dressed up and hit the champaign brunch buffet. Hey now, no judging a girls gotta take advantage of brunch when she can! So wether you are brunching it up or hitting the town with your best girls, I hope you do it in style and have a blast!
Birchbox February 2016: “what’s the occasion!?”
ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm: a high-tech, moisturizing lip balm from Birchbox brand ARROW. Formulated to adjust to your unique pH, it enhances each wearer’s natural lip color to create the perfect, just-for-you hue.
———-> woohoo a lip balm that customizes itself to me! This balm is really nourishing and has a lovely light mint scent.
COOLA® Classic SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face: The eco-friendly formula is made with 70 percent certified organic ingredients and protects from both UVA rays that lead to premature aging and UVB rays that cause painful burns.
(MALIN+GOETZ) clarifying clay mask: Made for acne-prone skin but safe for sensitive complexions, it taps refined kaolin clay to absorb excess oil and draw out impurities, plus pumice to polish away dead skin.
——-> Sunday night is usually mask night in uptown! Nothing like chilling on the couch, watching the real house wives and waiting for my mask to dry. This mask worked really well, it was a little to drying on my skin, but it did clear up those pesky black heads on my nose. I’m trying to be like the cool kids and posing with my best duck face! Yea I know, I won’t attempt this face again, I look like a crazy pants!
L’Artisan Parfumeur: This light, sun-kissed scent from the iconic Parisian fragrance house L’Artisan is perfect for warm weather—or for spritzing on a carefree, summer vibe any time of year. Inspired by the image of children chasing butterflies, the fresh notes of orange blossom, jasmine, lime, and tuberose evoke a feeling of simple summer days. Slip this petite rollerball in your purse for a touch of fresh scent wherever you go.
Ouidad VitaCurl® Define & Shine Styling Gel-Creme: Infused with smoothing soybean extract, volumizing vitamin A and unique curl-forming polymers for long-lasting definition, this ultra-hydrating, non-sticky formula enhances the texture of curls and waves while leaving a luminous finish.
As far as Birchboxes go this was a pretty great box! My sample choice this month was the Birchbox brand “Arrow” lip balm and I am in love with it. I hope you enjoyed your samples as much as I enjoyed mine!
