Beauty Box 5 - December 2013

I love seeing what themes all of my subs come up with each month...even though the themes usually have little to do with the actual contents, I just think they're fun! Beauty Box 5 has a very fitting theme for December - "Naughty and Nice".  I was excited to find out what was inside!

Beauty Box 5 always has good sample sizes and an interesting variety.

NYX - Love in Rio palette in Sway With Lola - This palette is so pretty! The lighting in here sucks, so the colors are a bit off. They are actually a soft pink, a light shimmery brown, and a baby blue. I really like NYX products. This palette is not super pigmented, but I actually like that sometimes...these shadows are a really nice sheer wash of color. I look forward to playing with them.

Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer - This is a light water based moisturizer. It has a nice refreshing scent, and I am pretty excited to try it. I will likely save it for summer, because in the winter I need a bit more moisture.

Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper - This is a plumping gloss with a pretty color and shimmer to it! It has just the right amount of pigmentation, and it can be applied sheerly or built up for more color. It has a nice minty smell to it, too.

Body Drench Daily Moisturizing Lotion in Hemp - This is a nice silky lotion. I wasn't sure what it would smell like, as all I could think of was the smell of hemp jewelry, but it is actually a nice, light, fresh fragrance. I really like this lotion and it has found a home in my bag!

Every Beauty Flexible Foot Smoother - This is actually something I really needed! I was just thinking about buying a pumice stone or something similar to smooth out my feet, and then this showed up! It's nice and flexible, with a fine grit on one side and a more coarse one on the other. It reminds me a bit of a kitchen sponge (but more substantial). Super excited to get this.

Overall, I think this month was a really great month for BB5! I'm loving all of the products I received. 

If you haven't tried Beauty Box 5 yet, give it a shot. Here is a sneak peek of what's coming in January!
