Beauty Box 5 June 2016 Made in the Shade @beautybox5 #prestigecosmetics #Mannakadar #sweepbeauty #versaspa #purlisse

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 June Made in the Shade box this week.  The June theme is all all about staying pretty and protecting your skin. You can look gorgeous and sweep on color without baking in the sun these days. Beauty Box 5 always has 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 June 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 I go.  Even if it is far from home I will still be looking good with all my goodies stashed in my bag.

The first item in this box is a Prestige Cosmetics Brow and Lash Brush.  I am pretty particular about doing my brows and lashes every single day. I feel like I used to have better brows (and I probably did) but they are not the thickest these days. I find it only takes a little bit of time to make a big difference with a good mascara and either a brow pencil or powder or some combination of the two. I set my brows with clear gel and brush them on an angle. This brow and lash brush makes it easy as 1-2-3. It only takes a minute to make a big difference. Retail $3.25

You all know I am not a sun-sitting kind of gal but it still does feel nice to have a tiny bit of color on my skin. Here is a no wrinkle non-UVA/UVB option.  I was excited to see the VersaSpa Gradual Tanning Face Moisturizer. At least it can LOOK like I get out every once in a while if you know what I mean. Combine it with the next product and you are good to go! I work so much these days but summer calls for a little bit of color. It really makes the whole beauty routine easier and faster too.  This adds just the right amount of moisture plus I can see that my skin is getting a bit of color already after 2 days.  Even when my days are long I can count on a bit of this handy moisturizer, BB cream and go!  Retail: $35

Manna Kadar Radiance Bronzer and Highlighter is a great way to add a bit of natural color without the sun too. I like Manna Kadar products and have used them before with good results.  I like this two in one product because I can add some natural looking radiance to my cheeks and forehead and then add some of the highlight to my lids and cheekbones to really make my look complete. It has a nice texture and goes on smoothly.This is a great sized product too since it fits right in a purse or travel bag to keep the fresh look going all day and night. Retail $24

Beauty Box 5 was really thinking this one out when they put together this month's box because they included just the kind of brush that we all needed. Sweep Beauty Oval Contour and Highlight Brush is the perfect companion to the bronzer and highlighter that was included. You can use this great brush with any product that you like too but it is just a great fit with this one. It is the perfect size to gently dust on highlighter and apply it precisely where you want it. It is super comfortable in my hands and makes blending, shading and doing my makeup a cinch. Retail $15.

Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus Treatment Masque is exactly what you need after a day of running around or right before the weekend away at the beach. You can take a few minutes and relax while this natural fiber mask infused iwth Blue Lotus and Asian botanicals absorbs into your skin. I like to grab a glass of lemon water and read a book or catch up on my social posts while my skin gets perfected and infused with special botanicals. Retail $8.00
