Honestly, I do not think I will get a lot of use out of the items I received in my box this month, which makes me sad. I do not wear perfume (ever) because my husband is allergic. I also do not use hand cream, because I have oily skin and it makes my hands feel gross and greasy. So those 2 items are totally out. I will try the hair mask and face moisturizer. The lipstick colour does not appeal to me, but I will give it a try or will most likely give it away to a friend. Overall, there isn’t 1 product that makes me excited. Let me know in the comments below what you think about the products I got this month and/or let me know what you got in your box!
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a better February box!
I hope everyone has a great day!
