Birchbox (Feb 12') ...Shu Uemura, Kiehl's, Juice Beauty and Eye Rock

Just got my February Birchbox today. Since it's around Valentine's day, I was expecting red and pink wrapping with maybe some heart confetti. Instead, it came with silver and gold wrapping. I'm not complaining. It's just paper. But I kind'a wanted a Valentine themed Birchbox lol.

This month's Birchbox is about "Spotlight". It's all about focusing on yourself. Birchbox says, "This month's samples are designed to highlight your awesomeness - and maybe attract a little attention." Included are sample products that will help us improve some imperfections like dark spots, blemishes and even help us create the perfect cat eye liner.

Here's what I got...

Talk about getting attention, this designer eye liner tape by Eye Rock is freakin' interesting. Have u ever heard of such a thing? These are single-use stick-on eye liner tapes that will help you achieve the perfect cat eye. Really? I dunno, I'm a bit skeptical, but I'll see.

Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum. Oh my gosh, thank goodness for this sample. I need it bad! I'm excited to see if it works.

Kiehl's Clearly Correction Dark Spot Solution. I've never tried anything from Kieh's because it's too expensive, but I know that they have a great line of skin care. This product promises to correct dark spots and clarify skin tone and I believe it! Just kidding. I don't know if it works, but I'm just to excited to try it.

Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil. Gahh...I've heard about this amazing product before. It's supposed to keep hair stands soft and super shiny. I kind'a wished the sample was a little bigger.

EXTRA: Supersmile Powdered Mouthrinse. Ooohh...mouthwash on the go. Just add water and use. It's supposed to make your breath fresh and whiten the teeth as well.

Six free tunes from Green River Ordinance. I've never heard of them, but it's free music download, so why not!

All in all, I'm pretty pleased with this month's Birchbox. There's only one makeup related item, but there are great skin care samples that I'm so excited to use.

Did you get yours? Did we get the same things?

To learn more about Birchbox, go to their website


  1. these are nice items! i luv skincare products :) eyes on the Kiehl's spot solution :D

  2. I can't wait to try the adhesive liner strips. The products you received were a bit different than what I got. The only similar things we got were the eyeliner stickers and the music download card. I can't wait to see what March's box will contain :) I am really liking this whole Birchbox thing. Its like a surprise that I look forward to every month!

  3. We got different things, except for the eyeliner and music. Sometimes I get mostly skincare in my boxes. I was glad to get makeup this time. I would love to try that Shu Uemura product.

  4. I love these little beauty boxes. I'm attempting to decide which one to subscribe to atm, there are only a few available in Australia and the choice is between Glossybox and Lust Have It - but is sooo hard to decide lol.
    Anyway love the Kiehl's Clearly Correction Dark Spot Solution would love to get my hands on a sample :)

  5. Love birchbox! Lots of great stuff here :) Eye Rock is available in my country. I still have to try it though. No need to line your eyes!

    The Pink Margarita

  6. the eye rock looks just like Dior's Backstage Velvet Eyeliners! i wonder which is better? i bought the Dior's and returned them. are you planning on doing a review of these products?

  7. looks promising! I'm very keen to hear your thoughts on the stick on eyeliners! Very unique stuff, haven't heard of this before
