The theme for the July 2014 Beauty Box 5 is Defining Moments! Celebrating all of those special times in your life that have helped you grow as an individual to be as amazing as you are today. Embrace these moments with the perfect beauty items and keep them handy for the future!
From Anna Naturals, Glowing Mama Walnut Face & Body Scrub. This smells really good and, though it says Walnut, citrusy. This scrub feels fantastic and is touted as being all-natural and perfect for preggos! I’m not pregnant and don’t plan on becoming pregnant, but I shall still use this.
From Revlon, Bold Lacquer Mascara. This mascara is amazing! Lifts, lengthens, drenches in black pigment… I love it to pieces. A $1.00 off coupon was also included for when it’s time for a re-purchase.
From Hask, Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment. Of course this is fabulous. Just by reading the name of the product you should know it’s fabulous. There is a ton of product in this sample, so I did my entire head only leaving it on for 5 minutes (it says to use for 10 min) and then rinsed. I then applied more product to the ends of my hair and left that on for 10 minutes before rinsing with cold water. The results were fantastic and I would definitely buy a full size of this product.
From Body Drench, Candy Licious Lips. This product is fantastic. I love how it feels on my lips and it smells exactly like cotton candy. It’s moisturizing and also yummy. Caution: do not eat your lips. You need those.
From Starlooks, Lip Liner. The shade I got is Tickle Me Pink and while it’s not a shade I’d likely wear on it’s own I love it over a lip balm (shown below), like the included one from Body Drench. There is a lot of pigment in this liner and I’d definitely use a more natural shade from this brand as something for every day.
This months box was an excellent mix on makeup, haircare and skincare. I was really happy to get a full sized mascara as well as create the perfect lip combo.
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 August! Check out my unboxing video below to get a few of my first impressions of this months products.
