Beautybox 5 May 2015 | Unveiling and Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Each month BB5 creates a theme-based box, and the theme for May is products that lend themselves to "Super Outstanding Skin." From a delectably scented liquid hand soap, to a lovely moisturizer, to a lovely cream blush, and they even included two beauty tools.
1) Bio Swiss Stainless Steel Mini Tweezer ($4.99) #bioswiss

These Red Bio Swiss 2-1/4" long tweezers come with included red end-capped transparent carry tube. The precision-aligned slant head tweezer tips are constructed of quality stainless steel. This discreet mini size is a perfect on-the-go tool with matching carry tube.

The size is perfect to carry in your makeup bag just in case you need to fix your brows when you are out and about.

2) Essenza Luxury Hand Soap in French Lavender (2 oz. Deluxe Sample) #essenza

ESSENZA’s French Lavender fragrance includes a top note of green fresh lavender, a middle note blend of light sweet florals, and a base note of subtle earthy wood. What are notes? In the fine fragrance industry, “notes” are fragrances that we sense over time once a perfume is applied. Top (head) notes are perceived immediately, and tend to evaporate quickly. Middle (heart) notes are the main body of a perfume, perceived as the top notes dissipate. Then finally, we perceive base notes as the main theme of a perfume, usually after the evaporation of the middle notes.

This is a delectable smelling hand soap that I really look forward to using.

Ingredients: Water , Sodium Laureth Sulfate , Sodium Chloride , Cocamidopropyl Betaine , Cocamide MEA , Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice , Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) , Hypericum Perforatum Flower , Vitis Vinifera Fruit Extract (Grape) , Arnica Montana Flower Extract , Leaf , Twig Extract , Hamamelis Virginiana Bark , Aesculus Hippocastanum Seed Extract (Horse Chestnut) , Stem Extract , Hedera Helix Leaf , Propylene Glycol , Fragrance , PEG-8 Laurate , Laureth-4 , Citric Acid , Methylchloroisothiazolinone , Methylisothiazolinone , Tetrasodium EDTA.

3) Styli-Style Glide-On Blush/Highlighter Stick in Bittersweet (Brown/Pink) ($6.49 Full Size) #stylistyle

Traditional blush a little scary? Avoid clown cheeks with our 100% product control blush stick that deposits a light sheen of color that blends in easily into the skin. Keep sweeping the stick across your cheeks to build your custom color.

This is a very buildable and highly pigmented cream blush that applies smoothly and evenly.  Bittersweet is a muted pinky brown,

4) Coastal Scents Classic/Synthetic Brush ($1.95-$2.49) #coastalscents

The Classic Shade and Fluff Medium is ideal for shading and blending like a professional. The soft, oval shaped, synthetic bristles allow you to soften the look of powder or cream shadows by blending harsh lines.

The synthetic bristles are very soft, and feel wonderful against the skin. This is a great choice for laying down color and blending.

5) Dermalogica Active Moist (0.24 oz. Sample) #dermalogica

Oil-free, lightweight moisturizer to hydrate combination skin. Sheer, easy-to-apply formula contains Silk Amino Acids and a unique combination of plant extracts that help improve skin texture and combat surface dehydration.

This is a very lightweight and fast absorbing oil free moisturizer that offers hydration for combination skin.

  10. I always get excited to see the goodies in a BB5 box. They don't ship to Hawaii so I haven't had a chance to try it out yet but I'm always intrigued. It seems like you got some fun goods in this month's box.

    1. It's just so strange that many companies don't ship to Hawaii! I just don't get it! Hopefully BB5 eventually ships to you!

  11. That is about 1000 times better than either of the BB5 boxes I got when I tried them. My products were ridiculously small and twice in a row I received toe separators. Cancelled on the spot and signed up for Birchbox. Been 'Birchboxing' ever since. It's cheaper, my products are better and their point system is phenomenal. Have you ever tried it?
