Birchbox’s February Red Carpet Ready edition of their box was a fun one!

Emerald was announced the color of 2013. I paired it with mint green and used these polishes for the accents as well…

Also in the pillow box, was this Dr. Lipp original nipple balm for lips in a mini sample size that is adorable! Weird name, I know.

Before you go judging it by its name, I highly suggest you give it a try. I have extremely sensitive lips in the winter and between seasons especially lately while I’m in the desert! My lips itch and burn around the edges and get so sensitive it’s ridiculous. Nothing works so when I read the reviews on this before I got my box, I was ecstatic to try it.

So I went and bought it lol I had enough points for a $10 credit and the full size is $14.50, with free shipping this month since its a full size of an item that was in the box! So I got it for $4.50, and my hubby was kind enough to buy me one also πŸ˜ƒ it’s a life saver, and is my only relief when it comes to allergies and dry lips!

I love these stretchy knot headbands!

This one is from Twistband and is called a thick headband. Set of 6 is $20, it came in black. πŸ˜ƒ it’s very silky soft!

The Skin&Co Roma cleansing body gel with olive and Sicilian orange extracts has a light lather and refreshing scent.

Since it has a light lather, I did need to use more to keep a lather going long enough to wash my whole body. The scent is light and delicious. Overall a good product, not sure if I’d buy it since I still have a stock of shower gels to use up though. However, it’s a nice spa getaway!

This was a great box and they are slowly seeming to get better with each box. Love my modelco lip products I’ve received from them and discovered! Do you have a Birchbox subscription? I’d love to hear what you got in your box!
