The theme for the December 2013 Beauty Box 5 is Naughty and Nice. Perfect for the holidays, because a little mix of nice with naughty makes it certain that you'll still get gifts while you have a little bit of fun!
The items in this months box are definitely able to make you look and feel nice while you're out being as naughty as you want to be.
From Body Drench, Daily Moisturizing Lotion. The scent is simply marked "The Original" but it's lightly perfumed with aroma therapy. The fragrance of it reminds me of baby powder. The lotion absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel soft, amazing and fresh.
From Clean & Clear, Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer. I love the scent of this as a face wash so I'm very excited to try out the moisturizer. When I apply this to my face I instantly wake up and feel refreshed.
From Every Beauty, Flexible Foot Smoother. It's definitely necessary in these winter months to have a scrubber on hand to keep your feet smooth in between those pedis. This one is coarse on one side and fine on the other side and will actually conform to your foot! It's washable and reusable as well.
From Ofra Cosmetics, Sultry Lipgloss Plumper. I love how pigmented this shade is. It's vampy, plumping, moisturizing and the minty flavor makes you feel decadent. It gets a little sticky at the end of wear but neither that, nor the plumping feeling is unpleasant.
From NYX Cosmetics, Love in Rio Eyeshadow Palette. I got the shade Sway With Lola. From the other reviews I'm pretty sure we all got this one. It's not necessarily a trio of shades I'd pair up, but it works for making a nice eye look naughty and vice versa. NYX has lovely shadows and this palette is no exception. My favorite addition to this months box!

The best part? This stuff is in travel friendly sizes perfect for your purse if you need some freshening up to remain "nice" while being "naughty".
I thought this box was a great mix of makeup, skin and body care. 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 2014!
