My February Birchbox

This month's Birchbox theme was about showing your lips some love. "This month is all about giving your lips some love—and making them pop with swoon-worthy hues." I decided not to opt for any of the customized add-ons. Here's what I received:

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray (1 oz/8.5 oz $46) | PARLOR® by Jeff Chastain Smoothing Blowout Spray (1 fl oz/4.9 fl oz $24) | Balance Me Congested Skin Serum (.2 fl oz/.5 fl oz $30) | Supergoop!® Forever Young Hand Cream (.14 fl oz/10 fl oz $38) | LAQA & Co. Avocado Lip Butter in Ninza (sample size, 0.14 oz $25)

"A daily face serum to reduce congestion and blemishes. It reduces blemishes overnight, helps calm redness, does not clog pores and helps reduce blackheads." My skin definitely needed this right now. It's going through a bad breakout right now (I think my Upstate trip threw it off) so been trying to let my skin breath but also needing to keep it moisturized. After a few days of using at night it definitely helped keep my skin calm and not clog my pores. I still had to layer with a moisturizer but will keep this in my back pocket next time I have a bad breakout (which is hopefully not soon).

"Forever Young Hand Cream SPF 40 defends against the signs of UV-induced aging with an innovative blend of antioxidants and super broad spectrum protection. Formulated with omega-7 fatty acid-rich sea buckthorn fruit, shown to help lighten dark spots, and skin nourishing meadowfoam seed and argan oils, this moisturizing age-defier improves skin’s elasticity and texture while safeguarding skin from future photodamage." I'm always down for a good hand cream.

Unfortunately when my LAQA & Co lip balm arrived the product was stuck to the top of the cap and therefore unusable. I was waiting to post as I emailed them for a replacement but haven't heard back. Womp womp. Update: LAQA & Co reached out via Twitter to help me get a replacement. Here's the review.

I honestly have too many of these samples now. I'm good Birchbox!

What did you receive in your Birchbox this month?
