Beauty Box 5 April 2015


It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long since I got March’s Beauty Box 5, but I’m so excited to see this little turquoise box again! If you’re not familiar with BB5, you’re totally missing out! I’m happy to fill you in! Beauty Box 5 is $12 a month for a month-to-month subscription, $10 a month with a 3 month subscription ($30 up front) or just $8.25 if you commit to a year with a $99 subscription! As you may have guessed from the name, you get 5 items (sometimes more) and BB5 loves to send a good mix of affordable products with a sprinkle of indulgences.  The value is always over the price here!


This month, BB5 partnered with Lasting Smiles. Not only did they send us a product, but the collaboration is helping to provide 20 kids with life changing surgeries. These surgeries help children born with cleft lips and palettes, which occurs in 1 our of every 600-700 births. This is a great cause and I’m truly honored that BB5 would share this great brand and news with us!!



I received the Lasting Smiles Organic Lip Balm in Passionfruit Mango. Basically, this lip balm spells like my favorite fruit smoothie and I instantly had the urge to try it. Like their cause, these balms are doing your lips some good by being free of gluten, parabens, alcohol and more. They’re also vegetarian, not tested on animals and contain no artificial colors. This is a full size and retails for $4.99. You can find these at retailers like Walgreens and Wholefoods 🙂


Next, I pulled out this hand & body lotion by Dancin’ Goats in the scent “Hula Bliss.” I am almost 100% certain I’ve heard of this brand, but I can’t put my finger of where I saw it. This scent is strong on the eucalyptus and lavender and smells divine. I’m a big fan of goat’s milk products because they absorb into the skin and are super gentle. This product is one I’ll be toting around and enjoying to the last drop (at which point, I’m sure I’ll have the invest in a bigger bottle!) This is a big 2oz sample worth $4.50


It’s not a secret that I LOVE my nail polish and you may have noticed my nails are naked at the moment. I’ve never had the chance to try this brand’s appliques, but These by Incoco are made with real nail polish. A lot of the brands on the market are made to be so much like stickers that they look fake and feel awkward on the nail. I’m thrilled to be able to try these and I love the pink and black lace design! These are full size and retail for $8.99!


We also got this Twin Lipgloss by Style Essentials. I really love the concept! There are two colors in each tube and they both come out in fairly even amounts to make a fun, custom color on the tips. This  color has a hint of iridescence to it and adds a beautiful shine that is perfect for Spring. This gloss has an amazing vanilla scent, too! I hope to see these in the BB5 shop as they’re only $2.50 a pop!


Lastly, I got three packet samples of this First Aid Beauty (FAB) Face Cleanser. I’m already a big fan of this brand and I’ve not tried their wash! BB5 does a great job of taking care of their subscribers. Most people might not get too excited about packet samples, but how about 3? They way you can get plenty of uses!  This is a sample value of $.74

This month’s box had a sample value of $21.70. I really loved seeing a great cause and a good for my skin bath and body brand in this box! I was also excited to see a pop of color with this Twin Gloss. Overall, balanced and fun as always!
