Beautybox 5 March 2015 | Unveiling and Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Each month BB5 creates a theme-based box, and this month is about celebrating the spring in style!

Forget taking a spring-break into high gear through your lazy days this season! Bold liner and lashes mean that even in your downtime, you still look like a million bucks. Getting ready doesn't have to add stress– just prep your skin and gloss on, because even if you're still working hard to get exactly where you want to be, you're always the boss of your makeup bag.
The March 2015 BB5 Box contains:

1) Eslor Introductory Collection- Second Edition (Sample packets. $28.00 for 2 oz., $38.00 for 2 oz., $38.00 for 1.7 oz. and $85.00 for 1.7 oz.): Your skin is about to seriously thank you. This lavish line is completely paraben free and gently hydrated your face without stripping away natural oils. #eslor

I recall trying some of the packets the last time that BB5 featured Eslor, but packets don't provide enough product to get a sense of how they will ultimately work on your skin.

2) Elite Therapeutics Rosemary Eucalyptus Body Cream (Sample tube. Retail $19.00 for 8 oz.): Smooth on natural goodness for your whole body! Never greasy, this luxe lotion replenishes your skin with an organic blend of oils and healing Aloe Vera– plus, it smells divine, too. #EliteTherapeutics

This is a lightweight and fast absorbing lotion that is neither greasy, nor is the scent overpowering. Despite the fact that both Rosemary and Eucalyptus tend to be powerfully assertive scents, this lotion is mildly scented. The scent is truly extraordinary!

Pure botanical bliss for your whole body! This rich, velvety body crème is formulated with a 70% organic blend of nature’s most effective soothing, moisturizing and restorative skincare. Immerse your skin in pure, healthy nourishment with “active naturals” designed to work both on and beneath skin’s surface to hydrate and heal: including rejuvenating Aloe Vera, calming Sweet Almond Oil and antioxidant Vitamin E. And it’s all infused with our proprietary blend of botanical extracts, including the powerful healing properties of rosemary and eucalyptus oils—both known to help stimulate circulation and encourage healthy cellular regeneration.

  1. They've definitely improved this box. I bought it at the start of their business and wasn't impressed but I'm changing my mind. I don't think you get a lot for your money but the items are all nice ones. The gloss would be my favorite.

    1. I agree! The gloss is definitely my favorite! :-)
