Beauty Box Five August 2014 Radiant and Remarkable @beautybox5 #BB5bright

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.

Wow, did summer seem to race by this year? I can't believe summer is heading to an end soon...we are into August already!  BB5 is shining right into fall with a carefree attitude.  Think about all the little things that make you radiant and make you remarkable....whether it is your positive thoughts or your smiling face.  I know for me it is my Can-Do Attitude no matter what comes at me.  Sometimes, it is a whole bunch of stuff!  All these little aspects make each of us remarkable so don't be afraid to shine a little brighter with a little help from your friends!  The heat wave of Summer is still here so enjoy it while you can but protect your skin! Embrace beaming skin, shiny lips and magically smooth hair to keep the glow going.

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 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.  Who needs something else to sit on the bathroom shelf or take up more room in a drawer? 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 is 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 August 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:

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

The first treat in this exciting August box is a sample of Novex Brazilian Keratin deep conditioning hair treatment.  I am wondering if this was tucked in the box special for me with my dry damaged hair?  My hair solution pretty much knocked on my door... okay,  so the mailman did the knocking.  I tried this intensive treatment on my  summer beach weekend keratin-treated hair and liked the way it looked and felt. I took the BB5 tip and left it in for almost a half-hour. Wow, it had a light scent and this professional treatment left my hair so soft and shiny!  It felt and looked like I just had a professional shine treatment without even leaving the house.  Already added into my To-buy list. Retail: $19.50 2lbs

The next product in the box is right up my alley. Purlisse Pur~protect SPF 30 facial sunscreen. Ideal for all day summer fun.  An easy solution to shield your skin from the harsh rays without causing irritation or breakouts.  It feels lightweight and the SPF 30 is the perfect level for me to feel confident I am protecting my skin.  I plan in picking up the full size one at less than two oz it is a great size to stash  right into my makeup bag ready for a week day or a late summer weekend away.   A smart splurge at $55.00 for 1.7 oz

La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes is a smart option for ladies on the go like me. I travel often for work and these are the perfect solution to get all that makeup off at night after a long workday.  I have used these before and can tell you they even make quick work of waterproof eyeliner and mascara.  A few wipes and poof, all gone!  Make your life easier with else little pack-easy wipes. Even  the price is reasonable at $19.99 for 48 packets. 

You know how much  I love lip gloss. I think it is the combination of color + moisturizer that makes gloss like this sleek Nanacoco one a winner for me.  This one is a beautiful, light sheer moisturizing color in Carmel Latte. It is a lightly sparkly pinkish tan color. It has just the right touch of color and shine for anytime. It even smells yummy like a caramel latte coffee. I love the added Vitamin E to keep my lips soft and kissable.  I tucked this right into my makeup bag after I tested it out...ready to wear on Monday!   An amazing deal at $3.99.

The last item in this exciting August box for a final treat is the Style Essentials Nail Polish in this amazing and totally trendy sea blue-green shade.  It has flecks of sparkly white blue and green to give your mani or pedi a glam finish. You can say goodbye to your boring nails and let your style shine through starting today. You not only get an amazing shade but you have the added fun of a sparkly finish.  The brush is unique and makes it easy to do a pretty mani or pedi and look like a pro.  
 Retail: $7.00
