Today’s Makeup Monday is a little different. I have a Beauty Box 5 unboxing. In case you’ve never heard of them, Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service that sends you five cosmetic samples. Some of the items will even be full size, as you can see below. Let’s get unboxing!
This month’s theme is prepping for adventure. We’re on the cusp of a very busy season, and you want to be prepared for anything at any time. I’ll be doing this as an unboxing/review at the same time. This month I received:
bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Storm
This is basically a loose-pigment eyeshadow. I should preface this review by saying that I have never used a loose pigment before, because I am the ultimate klutz. I’ve always assumed that loose pigments = huge mess. Not so! This was very easy to use and I didn’t end up with a Storm-colored face. I applied it to my eyelids with a flat shader brush. It blended well and can easily be built up to a deeper color.
Body Drench Moisturizing Lip Balm in Coconut Lime
This is a really nice chapstick/lip balm (I feel like those names can be used interchangeably sometimes). It claims to moisturize for 8 hours, but I wouldn’t say that. It’s very smooth and hydrating on your lips, and I love this particular flavor/scent. This has been really nice to wear under lipstick, because it’s moisturizing but it’s not slippery.
Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Body Wash in Lavender/Chamomile/Ylang Ylang
I have tried one Aveeno body wash before but didn’t care for it much. I love this one, though! It smells so good, I wish the scent lasted on my skin throughout the day. It lathers well and moisturizes my skin. This will definitely be a future purchase for me. Aveeno, if you can make the scent last a whole day, this would be the absolute perfect body wash!
This is what I call a sheet mask. Montagne Jeunesse calls it a fabric mask, which makes sense. It’s a piece of fabric that is infused with the mask solution. This particular one is a clay mask and it also gives the skin a cooling sensation. It was messier than other sheet/fabric masks I’ve tried, the cooling sensation was nice, and it made my skin feel smooth. It didn’t “wow” me, but it was okay.
Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant/Deodorant in Comfort Clean
This was a nice surprise in my box! I am one of those unfortunate people who sweat when they’re nervous, stressed, or any other kind of emotion. Apparently, I’m also an over-sharer… This antiperspirant does its job and smells good while doing it. This is another future purchase for me.
This month, they also included a small booklet of coupons, which warms my couponing heart.
Do you received Beauty Box 5? If you do, let me know what you got this month!
p.s. I am sent Beauty Box 5 in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
