Birchbox-February

Before I show you my February Birchbox, I wanted to talk this product from January's box.

VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Eye Serum


I liked this product. It does what it claims: instantly and temporarily tightens the eye area, and reduces dark circles and puffiness. For me, the difference in my dark circles was only slight. I think the only thing that will help at this point is more sleep (which doesn't seem to be happening!). I primarily used this product at night. I found that when I used it in the morning, my concealer didn't go on smooth enough and the eye serum would sometimes ball up, and flake off as I was applying my concealer over it. Even though I liked this eye serum, I don't see myself paying $80 for the full size bottle any time soon.

Ok...now on to February's box!

I've already used the mouthrinse, and I have to say that I didn't really enjoy the taste. It did make my mouth feel fresh, and I'm sure over time it would whiten my teeth as well. I can see how it would be useful in situations where you're not able to easily brush your teeth, like on airplanes or at work, but I don't think I'd be interested in it buying it for myself.

I also tried the Jouer tinted moisturizer. They sent me the lightest shade (Pearl) which was still a bit dark for my skin. So far, I don't think I like it as much as my Tarte tinted moisturizer.

I'm excited to try the other products in the box and I'll let you know if there are any stand-outs next month when I post my March Birchbox!

Did you get a Birchbox this month? What did you think of the products?

  7. My Birchbox this month had a good variety of products. I wasn't really too impressed with most of the products in my box, although I loved the Wei buffing beads!

    I did my unboxing and review here:
