Beauty Box 5 May 2014 Review

Hello readers,
It's time for another Beauty Box 5 review.  This month's box's theme is 'fresh and focused'.  Here's what I got and here's what I thought.

Harvey Prince Hello | Retail $55.00 5.7oz
"This pretty floral is the perfect way to transition from spring to summer! A smile in a bottle, each spritz boasts refreshing notes of mandarin, grapefruit, forsythia, and plumeria for a sunny and subtle signature."
I'm not big into perfume.  I have my one favorite for special occasions but it's not a product I use on a regular basis.  This will end up on the swap board.

Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths | Retail: $2.97 10 Cloths
"Stay calm and cool! Break out these cloth wipes after the gym, during a long day at work, or before a hot date to ensure you smell fresh and feel smooth! Just unfold and give yourself a quick rub down!"
These will be perfect for traveling.  I always feel gross after plane rides and these will be the perfect temporary fix until I reach the final destination.  Even better, they're not liquid so they can go in my carry on.

H2O Plus Aqualibrium Marine Cleansing Gel | Retail $18.00 120ml
"Put your best face forward! Made with sea salt and energizing marine botanicals, this oil-free cleanser gently exfoliates while protecting your pretty cheeks from free radicals and environmental damage."
I'm always open to trying new cleansers to this is something I'll definitely use.  The only downside is that this sample is really tiny and will only last a couple uses.

CATTIVA Precisione Eye Liner | Retail: $20.00 0.012oz
"Can't live without liner? We understand! Waterproof and retractable, this pencil is a must-have for minimalists and smokey eye queens, delivering smooth, smudge-resistant lines.  And it's paraben-free!"
Black eye liner is a staple make up item for me so this will definitely get used eventually.  I also love that it's a full sized item.

MaskerAide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask | Retail: $5.99 1 Mask
"Perfect for a quick lunch-time facial, these hydrating sheet masks are paraben-free, vegan friendly, and aren't messy at all! Bonus: they're also 100% biodegradable, making them great for your face AND for the planet."
I'm really looking forward to trying this mask.  I have never used a sheet mask before so this will be something new.

I'm happy with this month's box.  I'll be able to use most of the items.  We have gotten some sort of wipe two months in a row though so I hope there won't be more of those in June's box. If you want to sign up for BB5 check out their website.  I definitely think it's the best bang for your buck out of all the beauty subscription boxes out there.

Happy polishing,
