Beauty Box 5 arrived a couple days ago and I was thrilled to open it up! The first thing I saw when I opened the box was someone who looked like Miley Cyrus (and just as weird) peering back out at me! The card says this box contains products that will make us feel shiny and new!
Also on the card they mention that by liking them on Facebook you can be entered into a giveaway for a $300 spa package for 2, merchandize signed by the case of That Awkward Moment, and a custom beauty box to avoid future beauty fails! Sounds like a great prize to me!
The one thing I can say about all of the boxes I have received from Beauty Box 5 is that I will absolutely use everything in the box. They always include universally useful products from a mixture of brands, some are very popular and some I may not have always known about. There isn’t any actual makeup in this package but all of the products will keep you looking beautiful!
Jergens Daily Moisturizer is always in stock at my house. It is a good all-around lotion that I use as well as my husband. This will help smooth rough spots and moisturize ashy knees and elbows! Everyone can stand to test out a new lotion during the winter. The full size retails at $6.99 for 21 oz.; the sample is 1 oz. so it’s value is $0.33.
Nubar is a 3-free brand I’ve known about for a while know but I rarely order polish online and I don’t know if/where the brand is sold near me. I got a gorgeous glitter polish a couple boxes ago and in this one they included their Cuticle & Nail Oil. I am a huge fan of cuticle oils and I am thrilled to see this brand represented again. It is essentially a “jojoba oil elixir” and it apparently comes in several different candy colors. You can sooth inflamed skin and psoriasis by gently massaging a small amount around your nails! The full size is .5 fl oz and it retails for $10, so this is valued at $5.
Swissco Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves are something that I haven’t ever heard of before but I like the concept. The card reads, “Perfect for lovers of faux tans, these gloves let you easily rub away dead skin in hard to reach places to leave you soft and smooth all over. Just slip them on in the shower, pour your favorite body wash, and gently buff. Afterwards, rinse and hang dry.” This came just in time because I have some reformulated St. Tropez products that are itching to be used! :) This set of gloves retails for $5.
Epic Blend Hemp Coconut Lip Balm retails for $3.39. It is an organic lip balm that smells like summer! It is gluten and petroleum free, non0GMO, and cruelty free! If you make a purchase from epicblend.com before the end of March and use the code BB5 you can get 25% off your entire order. I am completely infatuated with this super-hydrating balm and I am definitely going to check out the other products they have to offer.
The bonus product included in this box is a That Awkward Moment Mirror Compact. It is a great mirror that swivels around to stand up on it’s own. I love having a mirror like this. Easy to slide into your pocket or purse and is really sizable for how little space it takes up! It will help you prevent any awkward moments of your own! ha
I like the things included in the January 2014 Beauty Box 5. The products totaled just under $15 and that wasn’t even including the snazzy mirror! I will get a lot of use out of everything included! Get on board and go like the BB5 Facebook page.
