This is my first Beauty Box 5 and I like what I got! The theme for the December 2013 Beauty Box 5 is Naughty and Nice.
Let’s check out the goodies now…..
Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion – Infused with a blend of natural emollients, this is a fast-absorbing lotion that moisturizes well without being greasy. It has a sweet, tropical scent that’s nice! The 2 oz sample size is pretty good and is perfect to tuck in your handbag for on-the-go hydration.
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer – This is a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that promises to provide ‘a touch of moisture’ and won’t clog pores. The formula soaks in quickly but I didn’t find it moisturizing enough for my dry skin. This one is definitely more suitable for the oily skin types.
Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper – Winter is the perfect time for vampy, dark lips and this sultry lipgloss is just perfect for that! I love how pigmented it is and also provides fullness to your pucker with a slight minty flavor and a touch of plumper – without the stinging! It’s full sized (retail $$12.95) and definitely my favorite item in the box!
NYX Cosmetics Love in Rio Eyeshadow Palette in Sway With Lola (retail $6) – That’s a nice colorful palette! The color payoff of the eyeshadows is not excellent but good enough with an eyeshadow primer underneath.
Every Beauty Flexible Foot Smoother (retail $4.99) – ‘Tis the season of dry skin and my feet definitely need a bit of pampering at this time of the year! This foot scrubber can be used dry to briskly rub away rough spots or you can go spa-style and soak your feet in warm water for 15 minutes beforehand. I find it much better than a regular pumice stone and it’s also reusable. Good stuff!
Overall, count me impressed with this box! What do you think? Have you tried Beauty Box 5?
