The theme for the January 2014 Beauty Box 5 is Cheers to You!
From Swissco, Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves. Great to wear and easily slough off dead skin cells without missing a beat. The gloves are soft but lightly textured. They feel so good on the skin, not rough and definitely get the job done.
From Nubar, Cuticle & Nail Oil. I go through cuticle oil so quickly I might as well just drink it. I don’t believe I’ve ever tried the Nubar before this BB5 shipment, but it works just as well as all of my other favorites, conditioning and hydrating the cuticles. It also smells so good!
From Epic Blend, Hemp Coconut Lip Balm. I can never have enough lip balm. It’s stashed all over my house, car and in all of my purses. I can’t stand having dry lips, there’s really nothing worse. This particular lip balm smells great to me and makes me feel beachy with that coconut smell. It slicks on well and is plenty moisturizing without being goopy.
As an added bonus this month there is a mirrored compact branded with “That Awkward Moment” starring my soon-to-be boyfriend (hehe) Zac Efron – in theaters January 31.
I thought this box was a great mix of nail, skin and body care. While I was disappointed that there weren’t any makeup items this month, I was still pleased because these are all items I’ll definitely get use out of. Based off of this box it’s clear that the service is worth the $12.00 price tag. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for February!
