So like all of my subscriptions rolled in recently & I wanted to start with my standby Beauty Box 5. Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service that brings you beauty based products every month- check out their site to learn more! This month they included a few new to me brands as well as some of my favorites- keep reading to check out what was inside!
This month’s box is centered around Spring Cleaning- “out with the old, in with the new!” Here is the information card provided, click to enlarge.
Jane’s Pick All Natural Soap- So this is an all-natural soap infused with herbs & flowers…but unfortunately I haven’t a clue which scent mine is as it isn’t marked. They have lots of options & they’re all unique. Based on the scent I think mine is maybe Joy which is supposed to contain rose geranium & rosemary. It lathers nicely & leaves my skin feeling moisturized, you can tell it has some lovely oils!
Tree Hut Shea Body Butter- I’ve received Tree Hut products before & again- I totally love them! This is the Coconut Lime scent & it is fabulous. It reminds me of summer & tropical weather. The texture itself is amazing too, I’ve been buying this stuff ever since my first sample. It is so rich & extra thick that it quenches my quite dry skin. Paraben free, full of butters, & real extracts are the perfect blend.
Bellapierre Cosmetics Makeup Base- I love this inclusion! I have a few Bellapierre products but this one is totally new to me. This is an ivory shade that is supposed to serve as a concealer, illuminator, & eyeshadow primer. Although this wouldn’t work for all skin tones as a concealer this does work great as an eyeshadow base! It leans more dry than creamy, perfect to top shadow with. The color selection for me is actually quite nice as well!
Hard Candy Just Nails Nail Color- I haven’t seen this classic design from Hard Candy in quite awhile- my sheet says it is a 90s revival! My nail polish in the shade Pretty in Punk & it is a gorgeous pink! I love it! So much fun to see this bottle with the ring topper again, awesome addition for a real makeup enthusiast!
Swissco Dual Sided Facial Pad- I’ve never seen this before but it is a cool idea! So this little cleansing pad is a reusable dual-sided wonder to cleanse the face. For me though I think the exfoliating side might be a bit rough on my delicate facial skin so I’ve been using it down my neck & chest. It is supposed to achieve softer skin & smaller pores but I’ve been using it mainly for exfoliating to make sure pricey skincare really gets down deep.
Left to right we have the Bellapierre Cosmetics Makeup Base, Tree Hut Shea Body Butter in Coconut Lime, & the Hard Candy Nail Polish in Pretty in Punk.
You can subscribe to Beauty Box 5 monthly for $12 a month, $30 for 3 months ($10 a month), or even $99 a year (only $8.25 a month!) which is a pretty darn good set of options if you ask me! You receive 5 samples monthly & it has helped to introduce me to lots of new brands to play with!
So with a makeup item, nail polish, body soap, & body butter then the Swissco product which I consider a tool we have a well-rounded box for March 2014 wouldn’t you say? I’m quite happy with every product & I think I’ll actually be using them all which is excellent.
What do you think of this box? If you receive Beauty Box 5 I’d love to see what you got this month so feel free to let me know below!
