The theme for the May 2014 Beauty Box 5 is Fresh and Focused! Securing a beauty boost is what this months box is intended for, time to treat yourself!
From MaskerAide, Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask. I love these so.flipping.much. Sheet masks are perfect for an at-home facial while you soak in the tub AND are perfect for chasing your kids around the house in. Facial and family play time... it's the multi-tasking mommas dream!
From H2O Plus, Aqualibrium Marine Cleansing Gel. Obviously to clean your face before you apply that awesome sheet mask. Marine botanicals have done wonderful things to my hair, I imagine it'd work well for my face too. I'm in the middle of testing another product, so I haven't tried this one yet, but it smells so fresh!
From Ban, Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths. These are for any part of your body that needs to settle the eff down. Neck, chest, underarms... these cloths will make your skin feel fresh and renewed, without sticky residue. These packets now live in my car. Because you never know.
From Harvey Prince, Hello. This is a floral fragrance that smells a little manlier than I anticipated given the name and the notes (mandarin, grapefruit, forsythia and plumeria). Not my cup of tea.
From Cattiva, Precisione Eye Liner. The shade I received is in black. I love how incredibly smooth this eye liner is. It applies like it's butter and doesn't drip down my face.
This months box was an excellent mix on makeup and skincare, with more of an emphasis on the skincare end (to counter last month's makeup heaviness, perhaps?). I was really happy to get a full sized eye liner, though I wish it would have been in another color other than basic black.
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 June!
