Beauty Blurb: Beauty Box 5 Review - January 2014

Beauty Box 5 Review: January 2014

In case you haven't heard,  Beauty Box 5 is a subscription service that delivers a mix of five full-size and sample beauty products to your door every month for just $12! They aim to introduce customers to new brands and products, including some that are niche, luxury, and eco-friendly. It's a great way to discover new beauty faves! Plus, each customer receives different products so you never know what you're going to get!

After receiving an awesome first box, I was really looking forward to the second. This one happened to be a tie-in for the upcoming comedy film That Awkward Moment. It even came with a little flip mirror with the movie title printed on it. Here's what I got in my January box:

Jergens - Daily Moisturizer
Epic Blend - Hemp Coconut Lip Balm
H2O Plus - Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash
Nubar - Cuticle & Nail Oil

Review after the jump.

Beauty Box 5 Review: January 2014
  1. Swissco - Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves - I used these in the shower with the H2O Plus body wash. They exfoliate and lather really well, but the "one size fits all" didn't seem very accurate. They seem to fit small and were a little uncomfortable to wear.
  2. H2O Plus - Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash -  I liked that the aquatic floral scent was crisp and refreshing without being overpowering. It smells amazing.
  3. Nubar - Cuticle & Nail Oil - I do my own nails at home, so it was nice being able to add some cuticle oil to my mani routine. Sometimes my cuticles get a little dried out (especially during the winter), and this helped moisturize them really well. A little dab goes a long way.
  4. Epic Blend - Hemp Coconut Lip Balm - This organic premium lip balm has a creamy and lightweight formula that applies smoothly and smells like summer. Bonus: it's gluten and petroleum free, non-GMO, and not tested on animals. One of my favorites in the box. Lip balm lovers: use code BB5 before 3/31/14 to get 25% off sitewide on Epic Blend.
  5. Jergens - Daily Moisturizer - Such a wonderful moisturizer! The formula is rich, absorbs fast, keeps my skin soft all day, and has a clean scent. Now I know why my sister loves it so much (she always keeps a small bottle in her purse!).

If you'd like, you can join Beauty Box 5 too! It's fun having a little surprise box filled with different beauty products waiting on your doorstep at the beginning of every month.
