Beautaniq Beauty. Bloom Blush in Pink Freesia. RRP | £9

This gorgeous blush was the first thing that caught my eye, how pretty is this pink packaging and I love the rose stamped onto the blush. Every Birchbox subscriber with get one of these gorgeous bloom blushes in either Pink Freesia or Darling Dahlia. Being a girl who loves pinks and peach blushes the Pink Freesia was the only choice for me and I love the colour it gives my cheeks. The blush is a subtle, sheer lightweight powder that creates a lovely natural luminous finish. You can build this blush for a better coverage, I know that this is going to be a great blush to use in the summer with the peach and coral tones. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the screw lid, it would have been better to use a flip lid but that's just my preference. 

Lord & Berry. 20100 Maximatte Lip Crayon in Soul. RRP | £14 

Since being a Birchbox subscriber I have had quite a few products from Lord & Berry and they've been pretty good. I have had a strobing highlighter pencil and a blush crayon so I have high hopes for this lip crayon. It really didn't disappoint. Amazing, moisturising & pigment is fab! This is a lip liners and a lipstick rolled into one with a brilliant matte colour that glides onto the lips so easily and stays put. I loved the colour and size of this pencil and love that it can be used as a liner or to fill your lips as a complete colour. The colour was lovely and really complementary on my fair skin. My daughter loved playing with crayon too, no matter how hard I try she likes to see what comes each month too. 

Vitamasques. Lip Mask: Plump & Repair. RRP | £5

A lip mask is not something that I have ever used before, so I was very excited to see this pretty mask in the box this month. The packaging is pink with metallic lips all over which is very fitting with the theme of the box. This mask has been infused with hyaluronic acid, collagen boosters and mulberry extract which help improve elasticity, adds moisture, repairs and soothes dry skin. It also suppose to subtly plumps the lips for soft lips in a matter of second, perfect prep for Valentine's Day!

Anatomicals. Great British Flake Off Strawberry Body Scrub. RRP | £2

Even though I have to be careful what I use on my skin  during the winter month as it gets pretty dry, this one was fantastic for moisturising my skin, and the strawberry scent reminding me of summer. Actually, this scrub also reminded me of doll makeup you use to get as a kid. You simply massage over damp skin, give yourself a good scrub and then rinse off. The formula contains sweet almond oil and glycerin to deeply hydrate and smooth, plus apricot seed powder to buff and exfoliate. It left me feeling refreshed in the mornings and my skin felt moisturised and really smooth.

Amika. RESET Exfoliating Jelly Shampoo. RRP | £20

I have used a couple of Amika products before they seem to do the job, but they are products that I would go out and buy again. A scalp scrub is my salvation to help deep clean my hair to remove impurities and product build up and this one is easy to apply straight into your roots, and it works wonders. This jelly shampoo uses charcoal, pink clay and sea salt to deep clean, purify, rebalance, and soothe the scalp. My hair is thick and long, so I did use the entire tube but this is one that I would definately repurchase as my head felt super clean and very refreshed. 

Spacemasks. Rose Mask. RRP | £4

With Valentine's just around the corner what better way to prep for date night than with a little pamper session? Well, this year I am all about taking time out for me and I love this little mask of wonders. I have used a Spacemask before and it was AMAZING and was great way to relax and drift off into a slumber. However, this one is infused with nourishing rose to help start off sleep time in the best way. I didn't not want to take this mask off.

In a nutshell, this is a pretty great box and is the best way to indulge in a little me time or for a little prep before a big Valentine's date! I'm kinda glad to see that Birchbox have upped their game with their boxes as last year they seemed to be a lot of hair products in the boxes and I love a variety of products.
