February Birchbox

I always get extremely excited when I receive my monthly email from Birchbox saying that my box has been dispatched! Their delivery is extremely quick (it normally arrives the next day) and I just love the surprise of opening the box and seeing what I received this month.
Normally there tends to be one thing that I'm excited about and the rest is just put into my sample box but this month I was very pleasantly surprised! I love the full size nail polish and all the samples are a really good size and things that I think I will use a lot.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner in Black, full size £21

 There aren't many beauty bloggers and YouTubers who aren't obsessed with eyeko (probably due to Lisa Eldridge loving it), so I think this was the main focus of the box. I already own the full size of this liner (it was a present from Emma, who is obsessed with it) but unfortunately I don't love it. It has an incredible pigmentation but it just doesn't translate on my eyes- a problem I have with many felt tip liners. I really do want to love this, but unfortunately it just doesn't work for me.

Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Leading Lady, £11

 I was a little bit disappointed when I received this nail polish because I'd seen a few blog posts from people who had received much more exciting or effect colours. However when I put this on I fell in love- it's such a perfect pinky pastel nude colour, something that was definitely missing in my collection. I'm not in love with the brush unfortunately- it's a classic thin brush rather than a wide one, but I can live with that because this is a really lovely opaque polish.

 I love me some hair oil! This oil claims to shield against UV rays and heat damage- something I like to hear! You can use it on damp hair to condition and protect or on dry hair to smooth it. I'm excited to try this as I'm starting to run out of my Wella Luxe Oil and I'm looking for a slightly more affordable alternative.

I'm extremely excited to try this cleanser, as it addresses my main- pores and shine. I'm about to run out of my current cleanser so I'm excited to try this, and it's a very good sample size!

I'm not very fussy about shower gels but I was quite excited to receive this sample as it looks extremely luxurious and the scent is really nice and fresh. It's again quite a generous sample so I will keep it in my sample box for travel purposes!
