Beauty Box 5 December 2014 Review

Hello readers,
My review of December's beauty box 5 is a bit delayed due to boxes being shipped out late and then the craziness of the holidays taking over.  Now that things have started to calm down I finally have a chance to sit down and get back to blogging.  This month's theme was 'Merry & Bright" and here's what came in my box.

Jaqua Bath & Body Collection | Retail $18.00 - $36.00
"Beauty essentails that let you satisfy your sweet tooth calorie-free? Count us in! Jacqua's butters, lotions and body washes are the perfect holiday treat for your senses and your body."

I got the Rose Bouquet Hydrating Facial Mist.  It comes in a nice glass bottle and will be nice for summer months when you need a quick refresh part way through the day.

Nanococo Nail Polishes | Retail $3.95 0.5fl oz.
"Bring in the holiday sparkle! These glitter polishes are perfect for a touch of shine as an accent nail of an oll-over twinking manicure for seasonal parties! BB5 Tip: Dab the glitter on in small dots instead of painting in strips like usual to get the most glitz per nail."

I really like the colours in this glitter polish.  They are very wintery.  I can see myself using this polish so I'm happy with it.

Lucky Brand Lucky Number 6 | Retails $15.99-$60.00
"With a blend of lotus, tiger lily, cashmere woods and jasmine, a spritz or two of this floral fragrance finishes off any look.  BB5 Tip: huidity and sunlight can weaken perfume compounds so store this sample in a dry, cool place so it lasts."
I don't wear perfume so this sample is a waste to me.  I'll end up swapping it or giving it away.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Moisturizier | Retail $65.00 1.7fl oz
"Restore your skin with a blend of organic, anitoxidant-rich plant and fruit oils! BB5 Tip: Smooth on this light-but-powerful moisturizer after cleaning morning and night to reduce wrinkles, combat sun damage, and seriously hydrate your complexion."

In this month's sneak peek we were told that we'd either get this moisturizer or a 4 colour coastal scents shadow palette in out boxes.  I was really hoping to get the shadow palette so was a bit disappointed when I got the moisturizer.  I'll still use it but I wish that they'd base selections on our profiles more.

Absolute! New York Nail Polish Remover Pads | Retail $2.99 32 pads
"Change your mani as often as you change your mood with these pocket-sized handy nail polish remover pads.  Bonus: their pleasing scents keep he hard remover-smell to a minimum."

I don't tend to have much luck with acetone-free removers but I'll still give this a try.  It's a nice size to toss in my makup bag when traveling.

Overall I'm happy with this month's box.  It's definitely a step up from the last two boxes.  Unfortunately I've found that I've been getting more disappointing boxes than good ones lately so I've cancelled my subscription.  I'll still be getting two more boxes and hopefully they will be good like this one.  If you want to learn more about bb5 you can check them out on their website.

Happy polishing,
