Beauty Box 5 December 2016 PartyPerfect @beautybox5 #beautybox5 #jellypongpong #liquidgossamer #Neutrogena #amlactin #professionalhairspray #hikaricosmetics

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the products for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the products.


I love it....Beauty Box five has the fun beauty ideas for every day of the year whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter.  My little blue box from BB5 helps me manage to keep it all together at work and at home to freshen up my glam look no matter what the day holds for me.  BB5 shows you how you can squeeze in quality beauty time into even the days you gotta speed things along with a few little special products.  Check out all the trendiest of autumn fashions now that the long, hot days of summer are starting to fade! Don't forget to share your fave finds and share with friends too. Take a peek at a few beauty goodies to go along with your pretty fashions and maybe grab a few extra for friends. A BB5 subscription makes a great gift any friend would appreciate all year long.

Everyone loves getting the inside scoop. I like trying new beauty products from sunscreens to lipsticks and find that I often find new faves.  That is one of the great things about BB5.  You can try lots of new things and sub in new favorites without being stuck with a huge bottle of this or that. I happens to the best of us even with green intentions. Sometimes I look at a product in the store but I worry it might not be for me and I don't want to spend all that money if I don't know that I really like it.  Who needs something else to sit on the bathroom shelf or take up more room in a drawer? I would always feel guilty. Every once in a while you get lucky and the store has a sample or perhaps a beauty company sends you a sample and you get to try it first.  That is the premise behind BB5.

The ideal solution for all of us is brought to you by Beauty Box 5. They understand and created their great beauty sampling box program. Beauty Box 5 is an amazing subscription beauty box sampler that is delivered right to your doorstep (or mailbox) filled with a combination of 5 brand new cosmetic samples monthly, quarterly or annually. You can start out at just $12 a month or save more by getting a longer subscription. 

Signing up to receive Beauty Box 5 each month is a great new way for anyone from teens to moms and even a savvy fashionista Gramma to sample new cosmetic products and see what works for you. Good skin care and the joy of beauty has no age limit!  Each month they include tips and tricks for the products on the back of this little card below to help you get the most out of your beauty samples each month.


Beauty Box 5 is always on the lookout for the latest new items to make the best matches for your own personal taste and lifestyle.  The prices are reasonable too. You can get a Beauty Box 5 monthly for $12, quarterly for $30 or annually for just $99.  Shipping is always free.  A fun way to check out lots  of the new beauty stuff out there without a whole lot of $$ investment. The great part is that if you like something, you can just up and buy the full size item, right?  Much better than buying a full size you-know-what-beauty-item and paying a fortune and then it sits in the makeup bag gathering dust because it doesn't work for you.


Beauty Box 5 mixes it up with their brands and keeps things adventurous. They source from a mix of niche, luxe, regular drugstore, vegan and eco-conscious brands.  One month you might get hair care, nail care, makeup, skin care, fragrances or even beauty accessories or a mix of any of the above.  I love the suspense!  You will get a carefully curated blend of travel, full-size and deluxe samples from their most current collection.

I just received the December Party Perfect box this week.  The December theme is all all about being the life of the party while staying beautiful in your own special way.  In between running from party to party this holiday season, squeeze in just a little touch of pampering for your skin and hair so you always look party perfect. Beauty Box 5 always has all the tools and tricks to help you look pretty from your head to your toes.  Okay, but just how do you get your hair, lips, eyes and nails looking just so? Let BB5 help you out! The team at Beauty Box 5 wants to remember you are it is all about taking care of yourself.  They show you just how to style your hair and eliminate the frizzies. They give you the tools to freshen up your nails super fast and glam them up with hot winter colors.  Just as often they tuck in moisturizers and even a gentle wash for the face or body. This month the focus is on the skin and hair. Beauty Box 5 is here with a ton of special treats to help you along the way.  Here is the scoop on the amazing treats that were in this month's sweet sea blue box:

As always, my box was filled with of lovely goodies that I could not wait to try. There were treats for my hands, face and body tucked in there this month.  There were several special items to keep me looking fresh and alluring wherever I go-or even if I stay home.  Even if I am home or staying local, I will still be looking good with all my goodies stashed in my bag.


The first item in this box is Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer. Winter chills can lead to dull looking skin but this little tube gives you an easy fix. This great illuminator will add all the radiance you need this holiday season. Who can't use a little more sparkle and shine when it comes to all those parties? Heck, I need shine and radiance just to get out the door and go to work. This is a lightweight, liquid radiance product that adds soft highlights wherever you need them. Dot it on or blend with your fingers. You can even use a clean make up brush. I tried my Liquid Gossamer this past weekend since I was headed out to yet another holiday event. It looked great and blended in really nicely to my skin. Super easy to use. It added a gentle touch of radiance, just enough to add a bit of sparkle and life. You can touch the cheekbones, tip of the nose or brow bone to add a soft shimmer and a bit of radiance any time you need it.  Retail $22.95


Who doesn't know this classic shower and bath gel? Neutrogena Rainbath Shower and Bath Gel is the perfect companion to any shower or bath routine. It is super gentle and has a familiar light scent that will transport you back. It is a fresh combination of spices, fruit and herbs that is a perfect start to any day. If you are prepping for a party this is a great way to wake up. You don't need a lot to get a good lather either. A dime-sized dab will do you. You can use your classic washcloth or sponge...break out the loofah to get a super scrub on. The lather is easy on your skin and it rinses very clean. I always slather on lotion (like the one below) to lock in the moisture after my bath or shower too.   Retail $7.24.


Professional Freezing Hair Spray is the ideal bargain option to hold your updo or those pretty curls for all the holiday parties this season.  It can be a challenge to get my hair exactly the way I want it whether I curled it, straightened it or pinned it up into an elegant updo. This hairspray is my new best friend that won't have me running to the bank for more cash. It really holds any style like a champ and you can just relax and not have to worry about flyaways. It doesn't have any kind of tacky feel either.  The mini size is perfect for any purse large or small...so enjoy pretty hair all day and night.  Retail $3.00
  

Winter means the air is getting cold and dry and we all know what that means for your skin. It is critical to be prepared with gentle but effective creams.  Amlactin Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion. This patented formula with Ultrapex combined with ceramides is the ideal way to relieve the dry skin. I know I am not the only poor soul who suffers in the winter with super dry and itchy skin. The secret is locking in the moisture with the combination of ingredients in this gem of a lotion. It can work for up to 24 hours too! Want to know my best secret? I have been doing this for years and the peeps at Amlactin say it is the best. Apply after your daily shower or bath (tip: use the body wash above!) while your skin is still damp. You will be ready for all those holiday parties with soft, comfortable skin. This will be a fave for fall and winter and all year long.  Retail $2.99.


The final product is the Hikari Lip Gloss. These highly pigmented lip glosses are ideal to wear solo or you can just layer over lipstick for a more intense look. This is a semi-matte formula so it provides rich moisture and a color that truly lasts throughout the day or night. If you are looking for an easy way to get a beautiful look in no time, here is your perfect party look. I love the size too, since these lip glosses slip into a small purse or pocket so you can touch up as you please.  Retail $13.00

The ladies from BB5 have put together another really amazing box full of beauty fun perfect to take you straight through winter and right into spring and even summer.

Maya Rudolph tells it like it is regarding fem care products! #generationgood #sponsored #comeclean#seventhgen


 
As always, our friend Maya Rudolph tells it like it is. She has a great sense of humor, but the reality is that this our body. We need to think about products that we put on our skin and that go in our body or touch it. I try to do everything I can to stay healthy and this makes sense. Watch the video below and share with others!

Perfect! Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème is the ultimate in liquid lipstick @influenster @marcbeauty #lemarc liquid lip creme #contest


I recently received a new VoxBox from Influenster just in time for the holiday season.  I love beauty products so you can bet I was excited when I saw it was from Marc Jacobs Beauty. If you haven't heard of Influenster you need to check them out. They are a fun site which lets you interact with friends via social and share your experiences with new products. I have found so many great things through Influenster over the past few years. You share your reviews and experiences and you may get the opportunity to try some complimentary like I have.  I know you want to hear all about my new goodies from Marc Jacobs Beauty so I will not make you wait any longer.


I was super excited because I have used Marc Jacobs Beauty products for a while now and I love them. Bonus for me because they included two lip products from this beauty line. The first one was LeMarc Liquid Lip Creme from in the beautiful neutral color called, "Yours to Try." I also received a Longwear Lip Pencil (P)Outliner in the color "Nude(ist)" from Marc Beauty. Hurry on over to Sephora and take a peek at all the colors butmeanwhile I will tell you more about my experience with both of them. The Longwear Lip Pencil (P)Outliner is a great neutral color lipliner that goes on very smoothly. It is self-sharpening which is an added bonus. I found it matched my lips just perfectly. It felt very comfortable and natural on my lips. It was easy to apply the LeMarc Liquid Lip Creme over the lipliner. It has a wand that picks up just enough of the product each time to provide a smooth application. This would be a good product for a novice or an advanced makeup kind of girl. 

The final look was very professional. I like that my lips felt moisturized and smooth but the lip creme stayed on for hours. I even drank a big cup of coffee and found it didn't transfer like my usual lipsticks or glosses do. The color stayed true and look professional for work. This would be a good everyday product and the colors are great for day time or an evening look.

These little Sole Patches are perfect for comfortable feet in any kind of heeled shoes.

I love how versatile Sole Patches are too. Depending on your style of shoes, you have several options in how you can use Sole Patches. One side has a sticker that you can put directly onto the ball of your foot, the heel of your foot, or you can even stick them directly onto your shoe.Any way you stick it, Sole Patches cushion you feet to avoid pain and discomfort. Sole Patches get their ultra shock-absorbing properties from the high tech urethane PORON®.  No matter how many parties you attend, no matter how far away your car is parked, Sole Patches will be cushioning your feet every step of the way.
