Birchbox 'Shine Bright Like A Diamond' February Beauty Box

Birchbox 'Shine Bright Like A Diamond' February Beauty Box
February's Shine Bright Like A Diamond beauty box from Birchbox is without a doubt my favourite box I've received since I first subscribed in March last year. Only last month, I was considering cancelling mainly due to the fact that I could save £13 each month but also because I wasn't overly impressed with the contents of January's box and hadn't been too keen on a few of the previous ones either. However, February's box contains so many great products, I'm totally staying onboard with it for now! As usual, this month's box is filled with 6 beauty treats with one being from Birchbox's own newly launched beauty line, LOC (Love of Color).

(L-R) LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Champagne Problems, theBalm Frat Boy Blush

Firstly, Birchbox have launched their own beauty line, LOC which stands for Love Of Color. They gave us subscribers the chance to pick which shade of their One & Done shadow sticks we would like to receive. The options were Champagne Problems & Perfect Cents.  I chose Champagne Problems as Perfect Cents is an intense, metallic copper shade and I already own a few similar. Champagne Problems is stunning on the lids, super pigmented and creamy. The first time I used this, I went without primer and wore it for around 5 hours, it did not budge one bit! Birchbox claim this can last for up to 11 hours and I can certainly believe it!

When I read we would be receiving a brush by Spectrum Collections this month, I was so excited! I've been lusting over these gorgeous, one of a kind brushes for a long time! The Tapered Finishing Brush is just beautiful. *heart eyes emoji* I almost didn't want to use it but I have and It's perfect for use with bronzer and highlighter.. The synthetic bristles pick up the right amount of product and it feels super soft on the skin. I'm in love!

theBalm's Frat Boy blush is also included this month. Such a gorgeous blusher that can also be used as an eyeshadow. The sample is super tiny but it really does pack a punch, so you can still get a good feel for the product. It's incredibly pigmented!

Next we have the Korres Milk Proteins 3 in 1 Cleanser. This is a cleanser, toner and eye make up remover that is said to be extremely gentle and allows your skin to breathe. Rich in vegetable oils and milk proteins emulsion which will cleanse, tone and remove all your face and eye make up, dirt and sebum. You can use this cleanser either by rinsing off or removing with cotton pads. Skin is said to be left soft, hydrated and supple.

The AYRES Body Butter in Pantagonia smells incredible and leaves my skin feeling soooo soft. Formulated with natural plant emollients, herbal extracts and vitamins to soothe and moisturise. Pantagonia contains a soothing mix of jasmine, lavender, ylang-ylang and fir. I love this stuff!

The bonus beauty item this month is the Derm Eyes Makeup Remover Wipes which as you can see from the picture, they have the longest name ever! These makeup remover wipes are perfect for sensitive eyes, those with delicate eyelids or contact lens wearers like myself. I'm not a huge fan of makeup remover wipes these days, I much prefer giving my face a proper cleanse but I will give this a try and see what it's like!

I can't wait to see what Birchbox have in store next month! Hopefully it will be another great box, fingers crossed. Want to sign up and see for yourself? Use my link here and get £5 to spend in their awesome shop!
