Beauty Army - December

I have been a member of Beauty Army for a long time, but I very rarely actually get a box - normally, there aren't 6 items I want that pop up for me and I skip. Beauty Army is different than most sub services because it allows you to choose your own are able to choose 6 out of 9 offered to you after taking your beauty profile (which you can retake to get different options.) I skip often, just because choosing my samples isn't as exciting to me. Lately, though, they've been getting in some really nice things, and I decided to get my December box!

This month, I received four full sized items (one being a retail travel size), and two deluxe samples. Nice!

Bath & Body Works travel sized shower gel in Pink Chiffon - I felt weird choosing this, because I buy so much from B&BW as it is, but I love the shower gels and it's a great sample to get. Their shower gel contains shea butter and is nice and moisturizing...and Pink Chiffon smells awesome.

mark. Hook Up Lip Gloss in Blow Kisses (red) - These lip glosses are cool because they come with a connector, so you can hook them together. This is nice and sheer and pretty, and I love the small vial - fits in the pocket well.

Whip Hand Cosmetics Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in Green Beret: This sample looks tiny, but a little goes a long way with pigments! The shadow is pretty, it is a nice green with a bit of gold shimmer. Love!

Skinn Cosmetics twin set in Coral Poppy: This is a double ended lip gloss/lipstick in a pretty coral shade! It's a nice balance between pink and orange, and it smells good, like candy.  I love these double ended products, they're so handy.

You Da Balm lip balm in Tea Tree - This is an awesome lip balm! It's made of organic ingredients and essential oils, and contains no petroleum or nasty chemicals. The texture is smooth and buttery, and it's super hydrating. The tea tree scent is definitely there, but not offputting for me. I love this balm.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment - I have had my eye on this for a few months, and I'm excited to finally try it. It's a healing hair oil. It does contain some silicones, but I look forward to trying it. It smells nice.

If you haven't tried out Beauty Army yet, here is my referral link.

I usually skip as well. I'm really trying to kick my sub addiction but not having much luck. Love the Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment. It's my favorite hair oil now.

Great box! I love the coral poppy lipstick/gloss. The new pigment looks really pretty.

I probably won't get another box for months, until 6 more things I want pop up, but I'm happy to finally try the Macadamia oil! Just put it in my hair for the first time (while damp, and then braided it), excited to see how it looks/feels tomorrow :)

I love that the lipstick is quite pigmented while the gloss is quite sheer, makes it super versatile. And it smells like grape bubble yum to me, lol :)

Love the pigment, I think it has just the right amount of shimmer.

Yep, I always skip unless there are at least 4 things I really want, and then it feels like it's well worth my $12! I need to kick my sub addiction, but it's :)

Thanks for the nice mention of the Whip Hand Cosmetics/Beauty Army Camo Collection loose pigment eyeshadow! Thrilled that you liked the finish on the pigment -- we wanted a little shimmer in the product, without making it "glittery." There are two more colors coming in the collection, so we can't wait to hear your feedback on the January and February samples. Thanks again for taking the time to review the product! ~ Riese and the Whip Hand Cosmetics Team

I've since had a chance to wear it and I adore it, goes on nice and pigmented. I can't wait to try the other colors!
