This month I got….
From Jacqua, Bath & Body Collection. OMG this smells like cookies and it is soooo good. Lemon.Buttercream.Frosting. Don't judge me if I eat this lotion, okay? So moisturizing and it states it's a shimmer lotion but it's really subtle. LOVE this.
From Absolute! New York, Nail Polish Remover Pads. I love quickie nail polish removing products! That's the lazy gal in me ;) These are great for on the go and the scent I got, Lavender, is perfect for what I like!
From Nanacoco, Nail Polish. The shade I got is First Night Kiss and it's got a clear base with large blue hex glitter, large and small white hex glitter and small white bar glitter. The base is pretty thick so it's hard to work with this polish.. you really have to maneuver the pieces around and even then it's hard to get them where you need to go. The smell of the polish is also pretty strong. However I do love the glitter combo and it's definitely going to be perfect for New Years!
From Juice Beauty, Stem Cellular Moisturizer. We are certainly sampling quite a bit of Juice Beauty in the subscription boxes this month! This is a nice feeling moisturizer with a light scent of lemons (which I LOVE SO MUCH). The cream is thick but sinks in quickly leaving the skin feeling awesome. I can't speak to the long-term effects (which are said to be wrinkle reduction, combating sun damage and hydration), but I did enjoy the sample size while I used it.
From Lucky Brand, Lucky Number 6. This fragrance blends lotus, tiger lily, cashmere woods and jasmine. Which is also how I imagine one would describe a haute Neverland. The scent was a little too heady for me, but I didn't dislike it. I don't know that it's something I'd personally wear, but I think many will enjoy it.
Also included was a code (BB5PERK) for a free piece of jewelry (retail of $50) with any subscription at Lilee. I adore jewelry and that's an awesome perk so I’m all over that! This months box was, again, completely devoid of makeup if you don't count the nail polish. Let's say it was devoid of color cosmetics. Normally that doesn't bother me too much but it's the second month in a row for that. Hopefully next month we'll see some makeup! My favorite item from this month is definitely the nail polish remover wipes. Lazy girls, rejoice. Oh, AND the Jaqua Shimmer Lotion.. Lemon Buttercream Frosting... there's just nothing wrong with that in any way, shape or form.
