Beauty Box Five Defining Moments July 2014 @beautybox5 #definingmoments

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

It is here. The heat wave of Summer is on in full force. Holy smoke. Mama Sunscreen is my middle name these days. I am crazy about protecting my skin. 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 find your new faves without being stuck with a huge bottle of this or that. I know you know what I mean. 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.  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. The ideal solution for all of us brought to you by Beauty Box 5. They understand  and created their great 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 to sample new cosmetic products and see what works for you.  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 July Defining Moments Box this week.  The team at Beauty Box 5 wants to help you celebrate the events that made you the amazing woman you are today. Maybe it was a big ole milestone like your college graduation, a first job or even a small victory like  wrangling that first big client or seeing that first paycheck get direct deposited into you bank account.  Perhaps it was a triumph finally nailing the cat eye liner look.  Treasure your accomplishments big and small and find joy in each and every one! Beauty Box 5 is here with a few special treats to help you along the way.  Here is the scoop on the amazing treats that were in this sweet sea blue box:


It was chock full of amazing goodies that I could not wait to try. There were goodies for my lips, peepers, body and hair tucked in there.  Lots of special items to keep me looking fresh and glam wherever my summer days take me.  They take me all over too....from the Adirondacks to the Jersey shore to Florida. I am one busy mama!

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara has an amazing lacquered formula. What does THAT mean? It means that this specialized formula has some serious staying power. Add to that definitive volume and definition that actually seems to lift my lashes.  I could not believe this worked without my trusty eyelash curler. It stayed put all day long even in the 95 degree heat. My peeps looked so beautiful even my hubby took notice.  A true deal that you can pick up for a steal. Retail:  $7.99 for .24 fl oz

The next product in the box I love. Even the name: K314 Tickle Me Pink. Ideal for summer fun. Star Looks Lip Liner is the perfect blend of creamy, matte and moisturizing...oh and did I say dreamy? It gives you full coverage for all day bright color and sophisticated style. I tucked this right into my makeup bag ready for a week day, a weekend away or a even a warm beach day. I like the versatility of this pretty pink pencil that lets me outline or add a pop of all over color. I tried it first as an all over  color.  I loved how it stayed put all day even through several iced lattes and a healthy salad. I looked fresh and bright with my Starlooks liner all day long.   A good deal at $12.00.

Body Drench Candy Licious Lips is a special treat for your lips. Who doesn't love Red Licorice? So special that my tween tried to repossess it immediately.  She is sneaky but I resisted. What could be yummier than a Red Licorice candy flavored lip balm infused with gentle beeswax, coconut oil and vitamin E? Not much.  It tastes totally like a the real yummy candy licorice that I love. Saves calories for me and I can still enjoy the taste on my lips anytime I like.  Love it! I guess I need to buy one for my tween or I will have to keep looking at that sad little face every time I pull mine out of my pocket.  Even the price is sweet and yummy and leaves me guilt free at $3.99 for .09 fl oz.


Anna Naturals Glowing Mama Walnut Face and Body Scrub is a perfect option for any girl especially if you love all-natural products.   Even more so if you have a tiny little bun in the oven because this scrub is totally vegan for feel good freshness.
Not to mention that it smells totally intoxicating. That makes me feel totally good about using it.  It feels and smells luxurious thanks to the infusion of moisturizing botanicals.  It gently exfoliates dry skin is without any parabens, chemicals or artificial fragrances. My legs looked smooth and fantastic and in my fave summer dress after an exfoliation session with my Glowing Mama. My face is up next. $10.99 for 4 oz


The last item in this exciting July box for a final treat is the HASK Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment you can say goodbye to your dry damaged hair that has had you wringing your hands. You didn't know what to do but now you have an easy solution. I used this on my dried out summer beach weekend keratin-treated hair and was impressed. It smells nice and the thick cream penetrated into my hair and left it super soft and shiny.  It felt and looked like I just had a professional hair treatment for a fraction of the cost.  A real deal. I love that the results last up to two weeks.  Sweet. It is so easy too...the ladies at BB5 shared with me that I only needed to use half the packet. Sweet, that means two sessions for my hair.  Applied it, waited 10 minutes and read a magazine and then rinsed. Magical, shiny well-behaved hair. 
 Retail: $2.49  1.75 fl oz
