ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm
Full-size price: $14.00
This is a lip balm that has a super hydrating formula which claims to adjust to your pH, enhancing natural lip color to create the perfect hue. I found that this was very moisturizing and did give me a light pink tint to my lips. It is long lasting and makes my lips feel smooth and soft for several hours after applying. The only thing I was not a big fan of was the scent, as mine had almost a plastic smell to it and it just wasn't the most pleasant scent for a lip product. Overall, I do enjoy how well it works and the natural color it gives. This is the only full size product this month and I would consider re-purchasing this product.


Color Club Mini Polish in the shade "That's My Jam"
Full-size price: $8.50
Sample size value is approximately: $4.25
Adding to my nail polish collection is this beautiful red color just in time for Valentine's Day! This nail polish is a very true red and applied opaque in about three coats for me. The picture I took of my nails is after a week of wear, so you can see minor chipping but overall it held up quite well. This is a beautiful color and I really like the formula of the nail polish. I applied a different brand glitter on my ring finger nail and it held up well on the nail color as well. This polish was not quick to dry for me but once it set, it held up to a lot! Overall, I really enjoy the formula and color. I would consider purchasing more shades from this brand. From my research, I was unable to verify if this was a full size product or not, I am assuming as of now that it is not.


Obliphica Professional Seaberry Serum for Medium to Coarse Hair
Full-size price: $38.00
Sample size value is approximately: $8.76
This is a nourishing serum that revives damaged, colored, and unmanageable hair without weighing it down. I really enjoy the scent of this serum as it is slightly sweet and floral. This serum does not make my hair oily or greasy and provides a nice hold to the hair that really does feel nourishing. I feel I would need a longer testing period to truly attest to the claims but so far, I do feel it is improving the overall texture of my hair. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Whish Revitalizing Cleansing Oil
Full-size price: $30.00
Sample size value is approximately: $4.41
I am a big fan of Whish, so I was excited to see a new product of theirs to try in this month's Birchbox. This is a cleansing oil that intends to melt away makeup, oil, and impurities from the skin. You simply apply the oil to dry skin and activate it with water! Overall, I found that the oil did a great job of removing my makeup and it did not dry out my skin or irritate it any way. The scent is light and smells mostly like a fresh natural scent. I enjoyed the formula and was surprised just how little you need to achieve a full clean face. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Not Soap, Radio Body Wash - Liquid Freud
Full-size price: $16.00
Sample size value is approximately :$1.17
Another one of my favorite brands was in this month's box. This is a body wash that carries a nice, light fruity scent. It lathers up quite nicely and provides an overall clean feeling with ease. It contains coconut milk, mango, and the calming benefits of St. John's Wort. I really enjoyed how well this product worked and I love the light, fresh scent. It does lather up quite nicely and you don't need a lot of product to clean your entire body. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


The value of my February Birchbox is $32.59.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $22.59.



Overall, I found this month's Birchbox to be fairly balanced with an assortment of beauty, bath, and hair products. I really enjoyed the nail polish and lip balm and was happy to see a full size product this month. I am hesitant about the hair sample as I feel I am overwhelmed by the amount of hair products I continue to receive. Hopefully, I will receive less of those in the upcoming boxes.
