Beauty Box 5 February 2016 Birthday Sweets Subscription Box @beautybox5 #beautybox5 #hempnation #epicblend #starlooks #elizabethmott #mannakadar

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 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 Birthday Sweets Box this week.  The February theme is all about celebrations and why not? Beauty Box 5 just turned 4. It happened so quickly and even though they are growing up fast they always have 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. This month the focus is on the skin and face. 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 sweet sea blue February 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 the chilly winter days take me from work to play.  They take me near and far too but hopefully not too far from home this winter. 

The first item in this box is a full size package of Hemp Nation Kiwi-Mango Body Wash I just adore a fruity body wash. I am always on the lookout for new washes and creams like this one to add a some freshness into my showers during the cold winter months. This gentle body wash smells just heavenly. By the way, I almost lost it completely to an unnamed tween but I was able to reclaim it and get at least one shower out of the container.  Retail: $7.99

What is a busy mama to do when she works long days but needs to look fresh all day long? Unfortunately work and social events continue to call so I call on reinforcements like this one from Elizabeth Mott. Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer prevents creasing and shadow stays on all day long. Even when I work all day and have an evening event and that is a miracle.  This is an easy to use tube that only takes one extra second and makes all the difference. I might get a second one for my travel make up bag so I can look fresh for my business trips--those days are even longer.  A deal at $20.

Winter lips for me are a constant work in progress. I am never without some kind of lip product even on the weekends and before bed. If you are in the mood for a fun lipcare product check out this Hemp Root Beer
Epic Blend Premium Lip Balm.  Yummy! Root beer soda is not usually on my healthy meals plan but this organic and all natural balm sure is permitted. It feels good on my lips and tastes delicious. Ummm, someone tried to pocket this one, as always this beauty enthused tween will remain anonymous but I snatched it right back. This lip balm is the perfect treat for my lips. This is priced reasonably too so enjoy...pick up a few to stash in your purse, ski jacket or by the nightstand.  This would also be a super cute little gift tucked into a Valentines gift bag for your best friend, your girls.  At this price I can collect a few more. Retail: $3.49

I love a good neutral lip product like this Starlooks Custom Lip Liner in Sultry Sangria.It was created especially for Beauty Box 5 in honor of their birthday. I really like lip products but for a while I forgot about lip liners. I don't know why but I have been getting back into lip liners this past year. I find that liners add that extra staying power for my lipstick, gloss or even work well as a matte base da solo on busy mornings. This color is an ideal neutral option to get a finished look that is great for any day of the week.  I am one happy Mama since lip liner let's me feel a bit more sophisticated no matter what this winter. A good deal at $16.

Aww, this is the last treat in the box but it is a good one. Manna Kadar Beauty 3-in1 Shadow, Blush and Highlighter in Fantasy is tiny enough to stash in any purse or makeup bag. It has just the right amount of color and sparkle and it looks great on my skin. I love the fresh glow which Lordy knows I need so much around this time of the year. The reality is that I don't have a ton of time, so I love multi-duty products like this that make my life easier.  Retail $19
