Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Each month, BB5 curates a theme-based beauty box, and I have to say that their April box was probably my favorite one to date. The theme, "Take a Hydration Vacation", is perfect for the season, and I will use every single item in the box! 
Here is what you will find in the box:
Soapbox Sea Minerals Body Wash (Deluxe Sample. Full Size $5.99): This fresh scented body wash smells delightful, cleanses the skin without stripping, and is also great for shaving legs!

Be inspired to dive into life with SoapBox Sea Minerals Body Wash. This blend of aloe vera, shea butter and sea minerals cleanses thoroughly while leaving the scent of the ocean in it’s wake. Because, hey, life’s a beach....

Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigments in Cake Pop (Full Size. Retail $19.95): This stunning, and ultra-concentrated, lip and cheek cream is both hydrating and richly pigmented. You just need to dab a tiny amount on your lips and cheeks for a gorgeous pop of pink perfection. This is definitely covet-worthy!  

A luscious, richly pigmented pot of hydrating cream for the lips & cheeks. Be warned, a little goes a long way! Dab your ring finger once onto the surface and spread evenly across lips. Use the leftover shade on your finger to softly stain your cheeks a healthy hue of coral-orchid. Made with Pumpkin Seed Oil & Rhubarb Extract for unbelievably plush, cushiony skin. #jellypongpong #paradisepigments

Maskeraide All Eyes On Me Hydrating Eye Gels (Single Pack Sample. Full Size $25.00 CAD): I haven't yet tried these, but I am a huge fan of this type of eye mask, and can't wait to try them!

Say goodbye to those pesky under eye circles and fine lines, and say hello to bright and radiant eyes.

Chella Passionate Pink Moisturizing Lip Pencil (Full Size. Retail $18.00): What a gorgeous take on the chubby lip pencil! The formula is hydrating, the color is richly saturated, and it is long-wearing. Not only is this a stunning hot pink, but it pairs perfectly with Jelly Pong Pong Paradise Pigments in Cake Pop! 

Longlasting color with a hydrating formula? Yes, Please! Take a vacate from drying lippies and keep your lips feeling kissable all day with this richly colored pencil. #chellabeauty #chella

Global Beauty Care Green Tea Makeup Remover Wipes (Full Size. Retail $1.99): I can never have too many makeup remover wipes– both for normal use– and for the veritable swatch-fests in which I engage regularly! I haven't tried these, but they have a nice and clean green tea scent that I like. 

Global Beauty Care Makeup Cleansing Wipes nourish skin while removing face & eye makeup, even waterproof mascara. This formulation helps to condition and soothe skin- it leaves no greasy residue and is hypoallergenic.

Green Tea has traditionally been known to contain powerful antioxidants and moisturizers. We have formulated it into a soothing, skin-nourishing cleansing wipe. When used daily, it helps reduce the look of dryness, wrinkles and sagging. Apply the pre-moistened wipes to your face, neck, or anywhere you wish to support healthy skin tone, firmness and appearance. #globalbeautycare

  1. Does everyone get the same box? I tried this subscription for two months and all I got was trash and half of it was the same trash the second month......

    1. The only variations that I have tended to see is different colors in makeup, different scents in body products etc., but they are basically the same for everyone. They have DEFINITELY stepped-up their game with the products that they include in their boxes!

    2. Maybe worth trying again (once I use up a lot of my stash here). Trying to be on a no-buy but it's not going well.

    3. Just keep an eye on what I get each month to see if you are tempted. I definitely think that there is a marked improvement in their boxes. I never do well on no-buys because the restrictions just make me want stuff more! I just try to more carefully scrutinize my purchases, and get the things that I REALLY want.
