Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and some tips on how to use them. Now, on to the items!

Birchbox February 2019 avene moisturizer

Avene Hydrance RICH Hydrating Cream, .5 fl oz – Estimated Value: $12.31 (Buy a 1.3 oz full size for $32)

These cream is made with Avene’s classic thermal water, but also with shea butter, too. It felt very hydrating and gentle. I did think the fragrance smelled like baby wipes, though, which I guess isn’t particularly bad, just something I noticed.

Birchbox February 2019 nexxus shampoo

Nexxus Therappe Ultimate Moisture Shampoo, 3 fl oz – Estimated Value: $3.38 (Buy a 13.5 oz full-size for $12)

Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisture Conditioner, 3 fl oz – Estimated Value: $3.38 (Buy a 13.5 ox full-size for $12)

I’m generally excited about getting shampoo and conditioner from boxes when they’re in bottles like this and not foil packets. These actually came at a perfect time because I needed new ones to toss in my gym bag! I liked this shampoo & conditioner pair; they smelled nice and did the job. I wasn’t particularly excited about the brand, especially when Birchbox offers some really great hair care brands, but I liked them and will use them so I’m not really disappointed.

Birchbox February 2019 sara riley eye cream

Sunday Riley Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream, .1 fl oz – Estimated Value: $13 (Buy a .5 oz full-size for $65)

Yay for Sunday Riley! This was my sample choice selection this month. I am not someone who struggles with constant dark circles, but as a mom of littles, I definitely have my fair share of puffy, tired eyes. This eye cream works well! I’ve used it 3 days in a row and I am pretty sure my eyes look brighter. They feel better, at the very least – less dry/sad when I pat on concealer. I’ll take all the Sunday Riley I can get through subscription boxes – I have been really pleased with most of the products I’ve tried from her line!

MAC Cosmetics Lip Glass in Spite, .08 oz – Estimated Value: $14 (Buy a .1 oz full-size for $17.50)

I don’t think I’ve ever tried MAC’s lip glass before, somehow. I actually quite like it! The formula is comfortable and has jojoba oil to help hydrate your lips, too. This color is everything, though. It’s call Spite and it’s a beautiful, plummy brown. This medium-coverage formula doesn’t lean too cool or too warm, and would look good on any complexion, I think. This is a fantastic everyday shade, and this is currently in my purse as my new go-to.

Verdict: I got a good February Birchbox! I’ll use up everything, and I’m especially happy with the MAC and the Sunday Riley. The estimated value total adds up to $46.07  – a fantastic value from a $10 sample box!

Love that lippie on you!!!

Paula

I got the same except benefit mascara instead of the mac lipgloss and that stupid little finger glove worth $3. Along with the shampoo, that made my box a real dud…

Jen

What mascara are you wearing? Those lashes❤️

Haley Faye

Thanks Jen! IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara 🙂

Colleen

I like Haley as a reviewer. She’s just beautiful and knows how to “do” makeup.

Haley Faye

Thank you so much, Colleen!!

MissBailey

The eye cream was my sample choice too! I haven’t tried yet – using up my current sample first. I really like the lip glass but the color doesn’t look good with my neutral skin and gray hair. It pulls a little too brown on me. However, I’m tempted to look at other shades.

Amber M

Girl your lashes are on point!! Gorgeous!

Julia

Yes, Haley, can you tell us what mascara you’re wearing? I’d love to know. Thank you.

Haley Faye

Amber and Julia – Thank you! I’m wearing the IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara. BUT the real reason my lashes have grown so much is using a lash serum! And I didn’t need to get a $150 one from an MLM to see results. I found a $30 one on Amazon with good reviews and have been using it nightly after my skincare routine and have really seen results after a month or two of consistent usage. 🙂
