It’s time for the first Beauty Box 5 of 2014! First, here’s a quick intro for those not familiar with Beauty Box 5 – it is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month. It’s one of the least expensive subscription boxes ($12/month recurring, $30/3 months or $99/year) that includes a mix of 5 travel, deluxe and full-sized samples of makeup, hair care, skin care, nail care, and beauty accessories from luxury and drugstore brands.
I was quite pleased with my December Beauty Box 5 and happy to report that the January box is just as good as the last one! Let’s see what I got this time around….
H20 Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash – Infused with mineral-rich red algae, Vitamin E and aloe extract, this is a unisex body wash with hints of aquatic florals and crisp sea grass that impart a clean, refreshing scent. I like it and will definitely be using it up!
Jergens Daily Moisturizer – This is an everyday moisturizing lotion that’s one of my hubby’s favorites so it will also get used.
Nubar Cuticle & Nail Oil – I don’t usually buy cuticle oils and just use hand creams & lotions to keep my nails moiturized. But this jojoba oil based cuticle oil has definitely been a welcome addition to my winter beauty arsenal! It is pretty good and I also like the grapefruit scent.
Swissco Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves – This is such a useful thing to have for scrubbing off rough dead skin! Just slip them on in the shower, pour your favorite body wash, and gently buff to leave you soft and smooth all over! Afterward, rinse and hang dry. I had never tried exfoliating gloves before but now that I have discovered these, I will be picking up again!
“That Awkward Moment” Mirror Compact – This was a bonus product promoting the upcoming movie “That Awkward Moment” that’s set to release in theatres January 31st.
Epic Blend Hemp Coconut Lip Balm – An all-natural, organic lip balm that’s gluten-free, petroleum-free, non-GMO, and not tested on animals? Yes, please! It will surely come in handy this winter.
Overall, I really liked the January Beauty Box 5. All the items included are useful! There was no makeup product this time so I am hoping and looking forward to get one or two in the February box! What do you think of this box?
