|Beauty Box 5 April 2014|
When you want to explore a treasure trove of makeup, skin and hair care products from companies you may or may not know of, then I highly recommend enrolling in a beauty subscription program. One that I like very much is Beauty Box 5 that sends five items, full-size as well as sample sizes for $12 a month.
Here is what I got:
1. Nicka K Hydro Lipstick in Daring–FULL-SIZE ($4.99)
2. Bonne Bell Lip Definer in Apple Cider–FULL-SIZE ($3.95)
3. BH Cosmetics Eye Shadow Collection in California–SAMPLE SIZE (unspecified size)
4. Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer in Medium to Tan–SAMPLE SIZE (.84 oz. in three foil packets. Full-size four-oz. tube sells for $9.99).
5. Blum Naturals All-Purpose Cleansing Wipes in Fresh Scent–FULL-SIZE ($2.49)
The Nicka K Hydro Lipstick Daring color is a deep red. Though I would have preferred a brighter shade for Spring, it was still a nice color. It had a lightweight feel, a fruity smell, and felt comfortable. I plan to use this more toward Fall.
The Bonne Bell Lip Liner shade of Apple Cider complimented the red lipstick very well.
I thought the sample BH Cosmetics California three eyeshadows were gorgeous with a deep violet (Hollywood), a medium golden brown with beige (San Francisco), and a rich gold (Malibu). The violet was more matte but the other two had a light shimmer to set them off. A full-size set with 16 shadows and four face powders would run $18.95.
The Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer was just enough to give you an idea whether you selected the right shade of self-tanner. Medium to Tan had a pleasant smell while it gave me the start of some needed natural color.
The container had 30 Blum Naturals Cleansing Wipes. It has a peppermint oil and aloe vera among its healthier ingredients, which are hypo-allergenic and preservative free. I thought the container with the flip-open lid was the perfect size for carrying in my handbag for quick hand cleaning.
As always, I thought Beauty Box 5 did a fine job of bringing some wonderful beauty products to my attention. Have you tried this beauty subscription out yet?
