Beauty Box 5 December 2013 - Photos and Review

December 18, 2013

Today's post is about the December Beauty Box 5. This month’s theme was about celebrating yourself and giving the products you would need to focus on you. See more info and photos below on my thoughts of what was in the box!

NYX Cosmetics Love In Rio Eyeshadow Palette - Retail: $6.00
I was happy to see that NYX was in the box. NYX has some of the best affordable products and this trio is a great one. The one that I got is called Sway With Lola and it has pink, brown, and light blue shadows. I wasn’t sure how I would like this trio since I’m not a huge fan of blue shadow. But I was pleased at how soft the blue is and the the other two shades are very wearable. You can’t really go wrong when you get NYX in a sub box like this.

 Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion - Sample Size
I have tried Body Drench lotions in the past and they have been great. They keep my skin moisturized throughout the day and they are really lightweight. The one I received was Hemp Moisturizing Lotion and it smells quite nice. I love Body Drench lotions because they are never greasy.

Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper - Sample Size
I’ve never tried anything from Ofra Cosmetics, but I did enjoy this lipgloss. It had a nice minty smell and I love the shade that I got. It was a little sticky and I didn’t really notice any plumping, but lip plumping products don’t usually work on me anyways. Even though the plumping wasn’t there, I still liked this lipgloss.

Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer - Sample Size
I was kind of surprised to see that Clean & Clear has a gel moisturizer. I hardly ever use Clean & Clear since their products are usually for those with oily/acne prone skin. I did try this though and it was good. This is water based and good for all skin types and it even worked well on my dry skin. I will definitely use this up and might even buy the full size.

Every Beauty Flexible Foot Smoother - Retail: $4.99
I am always doing my own pedicures at home and a product like this comes in handy to use. You can use it dry for rough patches or soaking your feet in warm water and then use it. I tried both ways and my feet are so smooth and no more rough skin under my feet. I would definitely buy this to have again. 

Overall, this box was great! I got to try products that I might have not known about or tried otherwise. If you want to find out more about Beauty Box 5, everything is on their website.

Let me know what you think!
