Birchbox – Shine Bright Like a Diamond

February’s Birchbox is here, and refreshingly, it’s not Valentine’s themed.

Instead, following on from January’s Best Year Ever, comes the encouragement to “Shine Like a Diamond”.


ide the box are six items, two full size, designed to help you do just that.


Spectrum Collections Tapered Powder Brush – full size. Prettiest brush I own, with it’s mermaid blue and purple, super soft bristles and baby pink handle. 

Birchbox are creating their own in-house beauty brand Love of Colour (LOC) and subscribers could choose between a silvery Champagne Problems or copper Perfect Cents, in their One and Done Shadow Stick. I often wear bronze tones so opted to try something different and went for the silver.


Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster – a vitamin C complex designed to soothe fine lines. Not sure about the name though!

Cochine Water Hyacinth & Lime Blossom Hand & Body Lotion – a floral scented lotion.

theBalm cosmetics Frat Boy Blush/Shadow – a rosy pink blusher that also doubles as eye shadow, should you want pink eyelids!


Derm Eyes Make-Up Remover Wipes – this is a bonus item, but seriously, one wipe, that’s a bit rubbish.

One lucky subscriber will also receive a £200 diamond necklace, which seems a little strange considering how many people buy the boxes, and surely not that random as they’re tailored to the buyer, especially when you choose a product.

Apart from those little quibbles, this is quite a nice box selection.
