Beauty Box 5 August Unveiling and Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Each month Beauty Box 5 outdoes itself, and this is absolutely true of the August 2014 box. I was so excited when I opened the box and saw the gorgeous twinkling lip gloss and the nail polish, and was even happier when I tried them!

This thematic box celebrates the "Radiant and Remarkable":

The golden days of summer may be headed to an end, but you’re still shining.  This month we’re recognizing the brilliant beauty that you are and adding the finishing touches to carry your carefree attitude well into the fall.  Embrace beaming skin, dazzling lips and lustrous locks to keep your glow going.
1) LA Fresh Travel Lite Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes (8 wipes deluxe sample): We love to pile on the products, but when it's got to go there is no need for a delay! These wipes take away all of our favorite makeup fast-- even waterproof formulas without irritating our faces or leaving any residue behind. Ahh- quick easy and refreshed! #lafreshgroup

I can always use more wipes-- so I am always very happy when I receive these in beauty boxes!

2) Novex Brazilian Keratin Treatment (Sample size. Retail $19.50 for 2 lbs.): 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. #novex

Sample packs are such a great way to try out new-to-you deep conditioners.

3) Purlisse Pure Protect SPF 30 (Deluxe sample. Retail $55.00 for 1.7 oz.): 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! #purlisse

So far, I am loving this SPF, and am putting it on the short list of sunscreens to buy!

4) Style Essentials Nail Polish ($7.00): 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! 
While there was no name on the polish, it can be described as a gorgeous iridescent teal. The multicolor shimmer is just stunning!

5) Nanacoco Lip Gloss in Secret Crush (Full size. $3.99 for 0.22 oz.): Your lips deserve a rush of color and shine with no stickiness attached! We adore Nanacoco's gloss because it's packed full of pigments and Vitamin E to keep your sassy pout poppin' and nourished at the same time. #nanacoco
Secret Crush is a super pretty peachy pink lip gloss!
Overall Assessment: I think that this is the best BB5 box so far, and while I really like everything a great deal-- it is the lip gloss and nail polish that stole the show for me! I can hardly wait to see what BB5 has in store for September!
