Birchbox Relax & Recharge January Unboxing

The For my January Birchbox I selected one of the branded boxes so the contents were not a surprise. I knew that I would love one of the items and was interested in the others!  Let’s see what I got.

First Look
Product Card
Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream. .2oz  Value $15.20. I received this in a different Birchbox but I gave it away. This brightening eye cream has a lavender scent. It contains coconut, rose oil, carrot oil, chamomile, cucumber, witch hazel, spruce knot and hyaluronic acid. This sounds nice and I may give it a try this time.
How to use – Dab a pea-sized amount along undereye contour, steering clear of lash line. 
Bridges Don’t Despair! Deep Conditioning Mask. 1 oz. Value $4.95. I received this sample before in an Ipsy bag and I traded it and regretted it almost immediately. I’m glad to get another chance to try it. This hair mask contains avocado, almond and Argan oil.  It also contains keratin protein, rose hip oil, aloe, and vitamins and biotin. No parabens, silicones or phthalates.  
How to use – After shampooing, work through hair.  Wait 3-5 minutes (or even up to 20), then rinse. 

Manna Kadar Lip Locked – All of Me. .01oz. Value $2. This is an all in one lip primer, stain and gloss.  It contains Vitamin A & E and natural Berry extracts. Paraben and cruelty free. The color All of Me is a very pretty nude rose pink.  Birchbox accidentally sent me two samples of this – yay!
Perlier Intensive Nuturing body balm– Shea lavender.  1oz. Value $4.25. I love the smell of lavender and this body cream is fast absorbing which is great. This is an Italian brand that I’ve heard of before but have never tried. I can never get enough body and handcream in the winter so I will definitely use this. 

When TravelMate sheet mask. One mask. Value $7. This was the item that made me get this box. I’ve tried when sheet masks before when I got them from Memebox.  These are really great masks that are made from bio cellulose which is made from fermented coconut.  They are really pricey and I don’t think I would spend seven dollars for a mask when I’m used to spending no more than a couple of dollars for Korean sheet masks. But I’m definitely going to use this.

Teapigs Tea Temples.  I do like tea but I don’t like either of these flavors. That’s okay because these were a bonus item and I’ll take them to work I’m sure somebody will drink them.
I calculate a value of $33.40 for this box.  I only paid $9.17 and I will get some points when I do reviews on birchbox is website. I’m always happy with the value of birchbox but this one I really like as I will use most of the items in it!
