Birchbox is the women’s version of Birchbox man. It is a monthly subscription box.

The boxes are normally $10 a month and come with 5 sample size beauty products. I was able to get a buy one, get one free so this is the first review out of two.

The bag says ‘Birchbox Man’ on it but it did it contain both of the women’s boxes.

Each box has another box inside of it which is kind of wasteful but at the same time I understand why they do this to separate them.

Each box comes with their own code. I will be reviewing box 38273 which is the February box.

This is the first look I had at my February box which contains five samples.

The box came with a card for the month. Since this was the February box, it was about love.

On the back of the card it shows all of the products included in the box along with the cost of the product if you bought it at full size.

Item 1: Beauty Protector – Protect & Detangle – Full-size $23.50 – This is a leave-in conditioner that helps detangle your hair and prevent color from fading. It also protects against UV rays and heat styling.  https://amzn.to/2JxRIQ8

This product is paraben and sulfate-free. It does not show a country of origin.

Item 2: Eyeko London – Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in black – Full-size $22 – This is a .04 oz liquid eyeliner. It says it is precise, smudge-proof, and in the color of pitch black. This product is made in China.  https://amzn.to/2US13Dp

Item 3: Juara – Candlenut Body Creme – Full-size $35 – This is a small lotion that says it has a Bali inspired fragrance. It definitely smells summery almost like coconut. It is free of parabens, phthalate, and harsh chemicals. It is a vegetarian product.  https://amzn.to/2U1TBbQ

I put a small amount on my hands to try it and don’t really feel that much difference but it does smell good. Made in the USA.

Item 4: Marcelle – City 24H Anti-Pollution Day & Night Moisturizing Emulsion – Full-size $24 – This product is to help protect against dullness and dehydration. It smells good when first coming out of the bottle but quickly dissipates.  https://amzn.to/2USX8pM

The product is hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, paraben-free, and non-comedogenic. Made in Canada.

Item 5: Wilma Schumann European Skin Care – Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads – contains 1 pair – Full-size $18 – These pads are made with collagen to hydrate, de-puff, and plump your under-eye.  https://amzn.to/2USXsVw

It is a hydration booster that is not tested on animals. It is made for all skin types.

I really enjoyed looking and trying all the different products in this box. There were some product lines in this box that I had not heard of and that’s why these sample boxes are so great.

  1. Hmm this is interesting, in lots of different reviews for different boxes I see people getting the same items I’ve had in other ones! It doesn’t seem as if they actually have many items to choose from…

    Also I’m a bit uncomfortable with some of the ways they market themselves:

    I’d be interested to hear if this is something you’ve thought about too!
