Davine SU Hair & Body Wash
Full Size Price: $22.50
Sample size value is approximately: $6.75
This is a two in one product that is enriched with Italian citrus extracts that helps with sun-drenched skin and hair. When used as a shampoo, it conditions and repairs damaged strands. When used as a body wash, it helps tame inflammation, irritation, and can help prolong your tan. I really enjoyed the fresh scent it carries and how well it works as a body wash, I have not used it as a shampoo yet as I have a specific hair routine I am currently using. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Balance Me Congested Skin Serum
Full Size Price: $30.00
Sample size value is approximately: $14.00
This is a lightweight daily serum that can also be used as a spot treatment for blemishes. The formula is thin and carries a very strong lemon citrus scent that does linger on the skin after use. The serum itself claims to refine pores and balance skin without drying it out. It is also free of parabens and sulfates. To use this product, smooth a thin layer onto cleaned skin morning and night, then follow up with a moisturizer. To use as a spot treatment just dab directly onto any pimples. I really enjoyed how it felt on the skin and did find that it made my skin feel more smooth. I feel I would need a larger sampling size to attest to any long term claims. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Supergoop! Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Cream SPF 37
Full Size Price: $32.00
Sample size value is approximately: $5.33
This is an anti-aging eye cream that claims to reduce dark circles and puffiness while working to improve elasticity and soften fine lines. It also contains SPF 37 sunscreen to block damaging rays to keep future signs of aging at bay. To use this product, you simply apply a small dot under each eye and then massage gently into skin. Due to the small sampling size, I find it very difficult to fully attest to any anti-aging claims but I did like the thickness of the formula and would be interested in trying it out for longer to see if it helps with my under eye issues.


Helmut Lang Cuiron
Full Size Price: $165.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.47
This is a unique fragrance as it is suited for both men and women. It is a layered scent that first sets as a citrus and spiced plum note and as it dries it settles into a faint musk and woodsy balsamic note. I am not a big fan of musky scents so when first applied it smells far too masculine for my preferences but once it sets, I do enjoy the light sweetness it carries to it. I don't think I'd purchase the full size of this fragrance but I would consider gifting it to others.


Manna Kadar Cosmetics Lip Locked in shade "Rosette"
Full Size Price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.04
This is a triple threat lip treatment that claims to eliminate the need to use multiple products, since it is a primer, stain, and gloss in one. It is a paraben-free formula rich in vitamins A and E to soften lips and deliver a long lasting vibrant hue. The coloring of this shade is a nice nude pink that keeps a glossy satin look to it. I really enjoyed how moisturizing the formula was and do think the color was quite beautiful. I would consider purchasing the full size and other shades.


The value of my February Birchbox is $30.59.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so I received an additional value of $20.59.


Overall, I was kind of in between about this month's box. While it contained a few products I enjoyed, I am feeling like I receive far more skincare products than I'd prefer. My favorite product from this month's bag is the lipstick.
