I was so lucky to received this excellent box of goodies from Beauty Box 5 for my honest review!
Beauty Box 5 ($12 per month, free shipping) is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 4-5 cosmetic samples to your door every month. Aimed at introducing women to new cosmetic products and educating them on best practices, Beauty Box 5 scours the market to find the best products for your lifestyle.
These are the products (the August 2013) box that I received:
Bask Heavenly Silk Daily Skin Lotion ($2.49 for 2 oz, $19.95 for 22 oz) — Packed with vitamins, plant extracts and antioxidants, this “heavenly” moisturizer provides anti-aging and firming benefits all while keeping your skin looking and feeling soft and smooth.
What I think: I like this lotion a lot. It has a fresh scent and is very moisturizing. I am traveling to Oregon tomorrow to see my mom, and it is the perfect size to take with me.

Be a Bombshell Eye Shadow in Birthday Suit ($14 USD) — These highly pigmented, long-lasting shadows will bring out the Bombshell in you…especially since you can use them wet AND dry!
What I think: This was a full-sized item, very cool! This shade is a nude buff with a matte finish and is great for base color or for highlighting. I have been wearing it under brighter shadows as it evens my skin tone and gives a smooth canvas.
Available at www.beabombshellcosmetics.com. Use code BEAUTY30 before 9/15/13 to get 30% sitewide.
H2O Plus Aquafirm+ Micro-Collagen Moisturizer ($50 1.7 oz) — Apply this nutrient-packed moisturizer day and night after cleansing to promote collagen production and visibly fight fine lines and loss of firmness.
What I think: I haven’t tried this yet, but plan to take it with me to Oregon tomorrow. I have tried a lot of H2O skincare products and have really liked the results I have received from them!

Nubar Nail Lacquer in Hot Pink — Fabulousness is just fingernails away with these cruelty free, vegan nail polishes.
What I think: This is not a color I would use, but my 9-year-old loves it! I had never heard of this brand and really love that the polishes are cruelty free!

Swissco Nail File ($1.50) — Who doesn’t need a new nail file? Do you have one for your purse yet? Use this handy nail file to prep your nails for your Nubar nail lacquer.
What I think: This is a fun nail file, but may be a bit large for many purses. I will leave this at home with my nail polish to shape my nails before I polish!
