Beautybox 5 April 2015 | Unveiling and Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Each month BB5 creates a theme-based box, and this month is about breaking "out of your winter dry spell early with a blossoming attitude…." If this beauty box is about new beginnings, then its message is most aptly reflected in BB5's decision to join forces with Lasting Smiles to provide children around the world with life changing surgeries to fix their cleft lips and palettes.

Every purchase supports cleft lip and palate surgeries for children around the world. 1,000 lip balms sold provides one child with a life-changing surgery. LastingSmilesCare.com #lastingsmiles
 The April box contains:

1) Lasting Smiles Passionfruit Mango Organic Lip Balm (Full Size. $4.99 for 0.15 oz.): Lasting Smiles Lip Care nourishes your lips with the finest handcrafted organic ingredients sourced sustainably from global small-scale fair trade farming cooperatives. The glossy, smooth-finish balm is housed in a sleek, modern tube with pops of color sure to make you smile.

This lip balm is very moisturizing and emollient, and it leaves the lips ultra soft and moisturized. It is organic and cruelty-free.

2) Dancin' Goat Hula Bliss Body Lotion (2 oz. Deluxe Sample. Retail $17.99 for 8 oz.): Refresh and reinvigorate your skin with our popular Hula Bliss Goat Milk Lotion, and let its natural fragrance carry you away to an island paradise. 

This is a rich and nourishing lotion that leaves skin indescribably soft, hydrated and supple. The invigorating scents of lavender, eucalyptus and rosemary quickly mellow once they absorb into the skin, but the scent is truly delicious!

The hula is the Hawaiian art of interpretation through dance. It combines fluid motions in the arms, hands, hips and feet to tell stories, not unlike how our goats move their hips and feet to tell us how happy they are.

Dancin’ Goat’s all-natural goat milk lotion is formulated with vitamin-rich goat’s milk and coconut oil to deliver intense moisture and give your skin a healthy glow. Active enzymes, probiotics, and lactic acid make this concentrated lotion ideal for all skin types. Our Hula Bliss Lotion is paraben- and sulfate-free, and does  not contain any synthetic preservatives. The relaxing fragrance of lavender, rosemary, and eucalyptus will carry you away to your own island retreat. #dancingoatskincare

3) Incoco Nail Polish Applique Set (Full Size. Retail $8.99): Bring fashion to your fingertips in just minutes! Get beautiful and flawless nail art without the time or expense of the salon with easy to apply, real nail polish appliqués. No drying time. Quick removal with polish remover. #incoco

4) Style Essentials Twingloss (Full Size. Retail $2.50 for 0.03 oz.): Two glosses are better than one These fun tubes mix complimentary shades every time you apply for non-sticky super shiny lips! #styleessentials

This gloss is non-sticky, nice and shiny, and quite sheer. It has a delicious scent that reminds me of Crème Brûlée, but that does fade soon after application.

5) First Aid Beauty Facial Cleanser (3 Sample Pakets. Retail $20.00 for 5 oz.): A mild facial cleanser that feels luxurious. FAB Face Cleanser gently cleanses the skin, removes surface oils, make up, dirt and grime. Its whipped texture transforms into a rich cream when blended with water. It is infused with a powerful botanical antioxidant blend that works hard to scavenger free radicals. FAB Face Cleanser is ideal for sensitive or irritated skin, skin that is undergoing treatment or as a gentle alternative for healthy skin.

Preserves the natural oils that protect the skin. Calms redness and irritation. PH-balanced to maintain the natural acidity of the skin. Daily use will result in fewer flare ups and reduced skin reactivity.

While I definitely prefer sample tubes to packets, because they are far more convenient, the contents of these packets are worth the trouble. This is a lovely low lather cleanser that is very gentle and non-stripping. My skin is left clean, balanced and protected. I will definitely purchase the full size container when I need a new cleanser.

No parabens, Harsh Chemicals or Colorants. Safe for Sensitive Skin. #firstaidbeauty

  1. Love that FAB is included, kinda stinks about being sample packets though! Everyone should try FAB, their stuff is absolutely awesome on skin!

    1. I agree, Jessica! It would have been preferable to include a deluxe sample in a tube rather than three sample packets!

  2. That Dancin' Goat body lotion sounds nice! I'm not a fan of receiving sachets in beauty boxes either, TBH.
