So just a little while ago I shared why I signed up for Birchbox Canada and showed you the February box and today I'm reviewing the products. I've had some time to try them all out, so I have some feedback for you!
You're probably thinking..."Was it worth it?" and let me just put it out there..YES! First of all, receiving a pretty box in the mail is THE BEST THING EVER! Secondly, I got to try five different products, some which I've never heard of. I'm already looking forward to the next box!
Ok, now onto the products!
1. FLORENCE BY TOCCA PERFUME
From working in the fragrance industry I have A LOT of fragrances and I LOOOOVE smelling new fragrances. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed trying this fragrance. It has a ton of pretty notes including bergamot, grapefruit leaves, apple, jasmine, white musk and tons more! It's light but has some substance to it. It's a large sample size so I still have a ton left and it will take me awhile to go through.
It's not James' fave. He liked it but wasn't like OH. MY. GOSSSSSHHHHHHHH. and I'm all about wearing scents that make him like that ;)
So would I buy it? Probably not, but I'm excited to wear it this Spring.
2. DERMA-E ANTI-WRINKLE VITAMIN A GLYCOLIC SCRUB
I love a good scrub every now and then. In the winter I like to self-tan (this is MY FAVE). So pre tanner application, I need to scrub off my dead skin cells. There's apricot seed powder and papaya in this to de clog all them pores. You think with ingredients like that in this, it would smell great but honestly the smell was my least favourite thing about it! I liked the scrub but I didn't love the smell.
So would I buy it? If it smelled good I would but no dice on that one.
3. N 4 CLARIFYING SHAMPOO
This shampoo claims that it will "restore health and shine to overworked tresses." Honestly, I LOVED IT! My hair definitely felt real clean after I used it. It had a really subtle scent which I totally dug.
So would I buy it? Probably!
4. CYNTHIA ROWLEY BEAUTY CREAMY LIP STAIN IN HEART THROB
As much as I love trying new fragrances, I love EVEN MORE to try new lipsticks/glosses/stains! I'm on the hunt for a new stain so I was PUMPED to try this one. It's vegan, cruelty free and paraben free. Sweet right? But not so sweet when it means a lip stain that DOESN'T LAST! I guess you need chemicals to make that magic happen...ha. I loved the colour but I felt it came right off.
Pretty shade right? That's a #nofilter selfie right thurrrr.
So would I buy it? I like it as a creamy lip gloss but not as a stain...so probably not if I was looking for a stain but yes if I was looking for a new creamy lip gloss!
5. WHISH THREE WHISHES BODY BUTTER IN POMEGRANATE
Last but not least, we have the body butter! I used this after the shower and really liked it. It moisturized great and had a yummy pomegranate scent. It wasn't to die for but it was great! I'd be interested in smelling the other flavours.
So would I buy it? If I didn't have a billion other body butters, I would buy it.
SO much fun right!! Any other Birch Box Canada subscribers out there? I'd love to know what you thought of last month's products. Oh and if you want to sign up ($15/month) then CLICK HERE!
