Mailbox Monday & February Birchbox

Mailbox Monday is on tour for the month of February at Metroreader. I had a light week which is perfectly fine for me as many of you know I am being more selective with my reading and reviews. I wanted to share another goodie that I received in my mailbox which is my February Birchbox.  I'll explain in a bit....

This is what I received in my mailbox last week:

I found out about BirchBox from a facebook post that author Sarah Addison Allen posted sharing about her love of Birchbox. Birchbox delivers monthly boxes that you subscribe to that includes 4-5 nice sized samples of skincaPreviewre, makeup and beauty tools. It sounded like a fun treat, and my husband covered the first month of February for a Valentine's Day gift.  I expected a bit more in the first box but I love several of the products and will get another few months to try more samples. They do have you fill out a beauty profile so that they know your age and skincare type and hair color so they seem to personalize the boxes.  I'll share some pictures below of the box and the goodies inside that I received. There is currently a waiting list to join(I waited about a month to get my invitation), if you are interested in joining you can sign up HERE

This is my February 2012 Birchbox:

This is how the box arrived in the mail. A bit smaller than I expected.

This is how it looked when I opened the box with some things wrapped.

This is the box opened with the goodies I received:

I love this product, and I have noticed that my skin is already softer using it. It's very gentle.
I plan to buy this although it is a bit pricey, a little goes a long way and it works well.

This was a small sample so it's hard to tell how well it works. I did like the subtle color of the tint.

This worked very well for a few blemishes that I had. Again, it was another gentle product.

This is not for me, more for teens or young girls in their 20's. I am passing it on to a friends daughter.

I haven't tried this yet.

Are you a Birchbox fan? If so, tell me what are your favorite products?


  1. One Moment One Morning is on my wish list. Happy reading!

  2. One Moment sounds a good book. Enjoy.

  3. I've read good things about One Moment, One Morning. I hope you love it!

  4. The cover of One Moment, One Morning is very similar to The Sisters.

    Here is mine

  5. I also won a copy of One Moment, One Morning (a few weeks ago). Birchbox is new to me.

  6. Wonderful Mailbox! Enjoy your new book!

    Here is my post!

  7. I've never heard of Birchbox! I have One Moment, One Morning on my list, but I don't recall of hearing about Nightfall.

    Enjoy your week, Bonnie!

  8. I've heard good things about the One Moment book. Enjoy!

  9. You got some great books.

    You are so lucky to have Birchbox. I have seen some vlogs and its amazing what you get. Here in Canada we have Glossybox, Topbox, Loosebuttons and Glymm. I think Loosebuttons is from the same people who do birchbox although I am not 100% sure.

    I always laugh when filling out the profiles because clearly they aren't looking when they send out items clearly not for you.


  10. A very good mailbox, enjoy!

  11. One Moment, One Morning looks like one I would enjoy. Happy Reading!

  12. Great different from each other too! Okay..I could easily see myself getting addicted to that box and wondering what will be in it from month to month!!!

  13. Both books are new to me. I haven't heard of the beauty sample thing before. I have a hard enough time remembering to use the beauty products I already own (much less putting makeup on each day) so it's probably not for me.
