The December Beautybox Five theme is all about taking a few minutes out of the hustle and bustle to pamper yourself.

Happy Spa-lodays from BB5 to you! With the hustle and bustle of the season, it's easy to put yourself on the back burner, but sometimes a 15 minute indulgence is all it takes to lift your spirits. Why howls Santa have all the fun?

Yumm! Nourish and illuminate at the same time with this decadent formula that includes aloe and jojoba oil.

4) Lucky Brand Lucky Number 6 for Women (small sample. Retail: $15.99-$60.00 ): Lucky Brand shows the world it can do more than make great denim with Lucky Number 6, a casual perfume for women. This spicy fragrance combines lush notes of jasmine, peony, tiger lily, casheran, jasmine tea, lotus leaf, liquid amber, lychee and musk for an enchanting scent that will capture the attention of everyone in the room. Spritz this long-lasting fragrance on your wrists and neck, and enjoy hours of the wonderful floral aroma. The scent is a fresh floral with a spicy edge, but it disappeared on my skin before I could see how it morphed. #luckynumber6

5) Nanacoco Nail Polish in Wonderland Basket (full size $3.95): Sparkling glitter that will enhance your nail with a brilliant effect. Perfect as a accent or can be layered for a super-textured finish. Wonderland Basket is such a gorgeous green glitter polish, but it does have a very strong scent that takes a while to fade. #nanacoco

Overall Assessment: The December box offered a nice assortment of products for holiday pampering. My top pick from the box was definitely the deliciously scented Jaqua BFF Shimmer Lotion with Aloe and Jojoba Oil in Orange Buttercream Frosting. If I could have switched anything out– I probably would have opted for a moisturizing lip balm or gloss instead of the fragrance sample. For me, my pampering always includes something nourishing for my lips.
