Beauty Box Five September 2014 Balancing Act @beautybox5

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

I love it....Beauty Box Five has the most amazing outlook.  No reason why you should fall just because the leaves are! The to-do list is piling up between back to school and work, but I can manage to juggle it all with my glam look as always. I squeeze in that time to take care of myself and enjoy life a little.  BB5 is shining right into fall with a smart new fall look just for me and you.  Think about all the little things that make you special no matter what the season. Embrace those fall trends and fresh colors...don't forget to bookmark those fall favorites and share with friends. 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 September Balancing Act Box this week.  The team at Beauty Box 5 wants to celebrate the change of seasons and not by hiding behind layers and layers of dark clothes. Go big. Take care of yourself and add those special touches. If I can do the Glamamama Balancing Act then you sure can. Sometimes it is a challenge, yes it sure is but I do it. You have only one YOU and each one of us is special in our own way. We deserve to take a little bit of time to beautify and keep our look fresh. 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 September 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 fall days take me.  They take me all over too....from the the mid-Atlantic to Washington, D.C. and to Florida. I am one busy mama!

The first treat in this exciting September box is two samples of Natural Style FUBU Deep Conditioner and Co-Wash.  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 this week. I tried this gentle wash on my keratin-treated hair and liked the way it looked and felt. I guess the 8 repairing oils and Shea butter helped. t had a light scent and left my hair easy to style!  It felt and looked camera ready. Already added into my to-buy list. Retail: $9.99/12oz

The next product in the box is perfect for my tired eyes. Christie Formulations 3-in1 Eye Bright is amazing. If this can wake up my exhausted eyes and make me look good than it can work for anyone. It is a light serum that feels cool and refreshing. It reduced the dark circles and made my eyes look more alive.  It feels lightweight and it didn't cause any irritation.  I plan in picking up the full size one at 0.5 oz it is a great size to stash  right into my makeup bag ready for a long work day or a business trip.  A smart splurge at $40.00 for 0.5 fl oz

Sally Hansen Toe Spacers are a bargain secret for home pedis. They cushion and separate with cute patterns and prints.  I feel so professional when I use these it is like a trip to the salon but way less costly! is a smart option for ladies who try to save with at home pedis like me.  Make your life easier with these. Even  the price is reasonable at $1.99/pair. 

You know how much I love makeup. I think it is the combination of color and pop that makes a creamy shadow stick like this one from Nicka K New York a winner for me.  This Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon is a beautiful, bright green color. It has just the right touch of color for day or night. I love the versatility to use it as a liner or shadow. I tucked this right into my makeup bag after I tested it out...ready to wear all week long!   An amazing deal at $4.49/0.056 oz

The last item in this exciting September box for a final treat is the luxury My Beauty Spot Nail Polish in this pretty fall mauve shade.  I tried it out this week and it goes on smoothly for shiny finish. Go stylish and trendy and bi goodbye to your boring nails with this pretty color. I found it easy to do a pretty mani  and look like a pro.  Retail: $24.99
