February Birchbox | Love Style

This months Birchbox was inspired by London Fashion Week which I found a nice change as my other two beauty boxes (stay tuned as they'll be up soon) were Valentines Day inspired. 

I have just uploaded my February Birchbox! 

I have decided that with my beauty boxes I am going to upload them to YouTube and then just do a quick post with a list of what was in the box and a sneak picture THEN I will leave the link below so you can go watch the video and see what I have to say about the products :) 

I wasn't super wowed with this month's Birchbox but I still felt is was a very good one and every single product I received I will use which is always great as I really hate wasting money on some of these boxes and then not use any of the samples received. Luckily I have never had that problem with Birchbox and find it very good quality for money and I am often introduced to brands that I had no clue about! 

I have fallen in love numerous times with things that have been sent via Birchboxes and some of my best used items were once little samples from them! 

On to the box: 

Products in the box; 
  • Beauty Protector Protect & Oil (£16 for full size) 
  • Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner (£12 for full size) 
  • Urbanveda Radiance Exfoliating Facial Polish (£8.99 for full size) 
  • Gilchrist & Soames The London Collection Shower Gel (£13.75 for full size) 
  • Leighton Denny Nail Colour (£11 - full size item) *The only full size item 
  • Green & Black's Dark 70% Chocolate (£2.29 for full size) LIFESTYLE EXTRA

In terms of 'big sized' products there weren't any - the 'star' of this box I assume was supposed to be the Leighton Denny nail polish which was actually my least favourite of the box and for the £11 the nail polish retails for I would have liked a more wearable shade that I could have worn a lot more (explained in the video). 

Overall there are some good products in this box and all of them but the polish will be used, unfortunately it wasn't one of Birchbox's bests but I am holding out hope for next month as they have partnered up with Lulu Guiness!
