Beauty Box Five hooray! February 2015 Subscription BoxReview @beautybox5 #marsk #revlon #absoluteny #avon #glamglow #yourminerals

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.  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 whether there is sun, rain or snow.  BB5 shows you how you can squeeze in quality beauty time into even the snowiest days of February with a few little marvy products.  Check out all the trendiest of spring fashions during Fashion Week and start dreaming...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. BB5 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 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 February hooray! Box this week.  The team at Beauty Box 5 wants to remember to celebrate the good times even in the snow. Don't forget about birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions even if you have to trudge through the snow to celebrate. Beauty Box five is celebrating this month because they are turning 3. They want to say a special thank you with some special goodies. We deserve to take a little bit of time to beautify and keep our look fresh even as we work hard all week long. Beauty Box five is here with a ton of special treats to help you along the way.  Say hooray! to new possibilities.  Here is the scoop on the amazing treats that were in this sweet sea blue February box:

As always It was chock full of amazing goodies that I could not wait to try. There were goodies for my hands, face and body tucked in there this month.  Lots of special items to keep me looking fresh and alluring wherever my chilly winter days take me.  They take me all over too....from the the mid-Atlantic to Florida and who knows where else this winter. We will have to see. I am one busy mama!

The first item in this box is a sample of GlamGlow Youthmud Tingleexfoliate Treatment. I love these mini sizes to take with me on my business trips. It is a anti-aging treat that performs well and is worth a little splurge if you can swing it.  It felt very gentle on my sensitive skin but I could see the difference after 10 minutes when I rinsed it off. I really liked the tingle while it was doing the work in my skin.  I love the way my skin feels during the treatment and adore my smooth skin when I rinse it off. Retail: $69.00/1.7 fl oz. 

The next product in the box is perfect for perking up your nails in the chilly February weather.  Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in Stormy Night is an easy way to get a sophisticated look. This polish adds some long lasting color that blends perfectly with all the neutral colors we see this time of year. I love standout manis...they just add a beautiful look to the daySometimes I use these deep chocolate colors on my toes too.  Even more fun is the fact that you will have a perfect mani or pedi for the week. Even better is that this polish comes off fast  with regular polish remover. Consider that this a sophisticated little option to add some zip to your winter wardrobe.  A deal at $3.99 for a bottle.

Have you ever tried Absolute New York  products? They are the fun beauty secret bargain and this one is no exception. They are priced reasonably too so fun galore...pick up a few colors.  I love this Absolute Love Lip Balm I have to say....I adore the cute little tin!  I can never have too many lip care products.  It really moisturizes well, has a super sweet scent plus a bit of tiny to perk your lips up. The price is reasonable at $5.00 .42oz

I love a good eye pencil for two reasons.  I always use mascara but sometimes I just need a little flash of color to define my eyes. I am thrilled because this pencil is nice and fat so I can swipe on color on a flash. Avon Big Color Eye Pencil in Natural Vibe gives me a fresh swipe of bright, creamy light gold color. This is a winner for me especially during my busy days when I just want a light makeup look but perky eyes. I am looking forward to some bright eyes all winter long. I have to say two swipes worked beautifully for me. A good deal at $3.49 for 0.56 oz

The next item in this exciting February box for a little surprise is a container of sparkly Mineral Eyeshadow in Vanilla Frosting. This girl loves her sparkle so I was excited.  I never tried these before but the iridescent color really adds a beautiful pop to the cold winter days and add a ton of depth to my eyes. This little container is so small it is perfect for quick work touch ups or even travel.  A nice treat at $22.50 for 0.4 oz.

BB5 included a special extra gift this month in honor of their birthday. They tucked in a bonus $20 gift card to their newest makeup brand yourMinerals. Check out all the beautiful all-natural shadows, foundations, blushes and brushes. I keep looking but have to decide...decisions, decisions!
