This month I got….

From Dancin' Goat, Hula Bliss Body Lotion. Can I just say that today hasn't been the greatest day but the name of this product alone brings a huge smile to my face as does the pic on the bottle of the dancing goat =D This lotion is made with goat's milk, coconut oil, lavender, eucalyptus and rosemary oil but the scent is primarily the eucalyptus which makes me a happy camper. Eucalyptus always relaxes me and it's what I always buy for myself when I go for spa type items. I have this sitting by the computer so I can rub it on my hands as needed.

From Incoco, Nail Polish Applique Set. Not all nail applique sets are created equal and IME Incoco has some good ones. I got a really pretty floral print that I'm excited to use this Spring. With these sets they're technically for 1 application but I like to mix the applique in as an accent nail on a mani. You'll get more use out of the set and it's fun to play ;)

From Lasting Smiles, Passionfruit Mango Organic Lip Balm. This is my favorite part about this month's BB5 because it supports fairtrade global farmers and funds cleft surgeries for children (more info here). The lip balm has a wonderful formula, is nourishing and smells incredible! Buy some!

Lasting Smiles Organic Lip Balm

From Style Essentials, TwinGloss. I have no idea what the shade is called but it's a light pink and shimmery fuchsia mix that smells like birthday cake. The formula has a lot of slip and feels lovely!

From First Aid Beauty, Facial Cleanser. This cleanser is stellar at removing my makeup and making my face feel clean without that tight, dry feeling. Of the samples used I didn't think that they irritated my skin at all and I'd definitely be down for purchasing a full size in the future!

This months box was definitely worth the $10 and I'm in love with the Lasting Smiles Lip Balm and their cause! The nail wraps from Incoco are a nice treat for a Spring mani and I may have found a new cleanser love in First Aid Beauty. THIS is what I love about the monthly beauty subscription boxes - new discoveries and lusts!
