Beauty Box 5 August 2014 Review

Hello readers,
My BB5 box showed up in the mail yesterday and I wanted to show you all what I got. This month's theme was 'Radiant and Remarkable'. I already knew I was getting a lip gloss from the spoilers but the rest was a surprise.


Purlisse Pur protect SPF30 | Retail: $55.00 1.7oz
"Shield your skin and soak up some rays, without guilt or greasiness! This lightweight moisturizer has the perfect amount of SPF to protect your pretty face and won't upset sensitive complexions -- bring on the sunshine!"

I'm always a bit wary of putting sunscreen on my face since I breakout pretty easily so I'm always up for trying a moisturizer sunscreen combo. This little tube will be fantastic for traveling.

La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes | Retail: $19.99 48 packets
"We love to pile on the products, but when it's got to go, there's no need for a delay! These wipes take way all our favorite makeup fast - even waterproof formulas! - without irritating our faces or leaving any residue behind. Ahh - quick, easy, and refreshed."

Make up wipes are always useful. This will be another great travel item since it's a pain to take a full bottle of liquid makeup remover and potentially have it leak.

Nanacoco Lip Gloss | Retail: $3.99 0.22fl oz
"Your lips deserve a rush of color and shine with no stickiness attached! We adore Nanacoco's gloss becasue it's packed full of pigments and vitamin E to keep your sassy pout poppin' and nourished at the same time."


I have become addicted to lippies lately so I was very happy to see a gloss included in the box. I'm also very happy that it's not red (like every other lip colour BB5 has sent me). I'm looking forward to trying this out and I like that it has some moisturizing components to it as well.

Novex Braizlian Keratin | Retail: $19.50 2lbs
"Is your mane hungry for nourishment? This intensive treatment works on all hair types, so you can renew and reinforce your strands right away. BB5 tip: massage this into your tresses post-shampoo, leave in for 25 minutes, then rinse for smoothness and shine."

I will admit, at first I was a bit confused at to what this actually was.  "Professional Food Therapy"? Is it a food supplement.  Turns out it's a keratin hair mask/deep treatment.  I'll give it a try.

Style Essentials Nail Polish | Retail: $7.00 4 Nail Polish Collection
"Bored with plain polish? Wave hello to shiny, exciting nails! This lavish lacquer adds a pretty dash of color and fun finish to your digits, and the easy-to-apply brush makes switching to a new hue simple!"

Last up is a bottle of Style Essentials nail polish in Fade To Black. To be honest it looks pretty cheap. I'm not a huge fan of bar glitter so this will ended up getting swapped or gifted.

Conclusion 
I'm pretty happy with this month's box. There are a bunch of items that will definitely get used and I'm glad that the cosmetics weren't red. If you want to find out more about BB5 or sign up for your own box check out the BB5 website.

Happy polishing,

Michelle
