In February’s Beauty Box 5 there was a $10.00 code for MyNameNecklace.com and usually most codes given in subscription boxes aren’t worth it but I always try to check them out just in case! The $10.00 code went a long way this time. I was able to get a necklace for only $7.95 shipped. And it’s Barbie pink.
I couldn’t resist.
This necklace came in the cutest box, shipped quickly and for free, and was really well made! Very happy for the code and the opportunity to rock this!
This is my 2nd month with Beauty Box 5. It was a subscription that I was never really that wowed by before, but recently it seemed they’ve been featuring brands and products I enjoy. I purchased a one year subscription to save some money. Normally BB5 is $12.00 a month. You can click on my pictures to be taken to their site.
John Freida Touchably Full Shampoo’s & Conditioner’s. I don’t see value in these because I get tons of them free. But I do have a few weekend trips planned and these will be perfect to pack along.
Rockstar Nail Polish and Nail Polish Sprinkles. I also don’t see a lot of value here because I have heard such bad things about this set. I haven’t used it, and honestly.. it’s going in the swap pile. I love the color, but that is all.
This Aveeno Lavender Body Wash is already gone. I loved it. It was so relaxing and I need it in my life always. I will for sure be buying the full sized bottle. The mascara I have tried from Birch Box I believe in the past. I remember really liking it.
BB5 included a $10.00 off voucher for a personalized necklace. I wasn’t excited at first cause usually that means spending a ton more money. I had one box send me a $25.00 gift card and when I went to the site the cheapest item was $215.00! Well, this was different and I only had to pay shipping which was inexpensive! I wanna say maybe $7.00? If that.
It came in the cutest little box!
I know. It’s gaudy. But I freaking love it. I had to go with the neon Barbie pink.. had to. I’m so excited to wear this! hah.
So it’s late February and I am finally reviewing my January Beauty Box 5 box. In my defense, I signed up in February and as part of the promotion I received this January box free of charge and also a discount on a 1 year subscription. That means I will only be paying about $9.00 a box. Usually Beauty Box 5 costs $12.00 and promised 5 deluxe or full size products.
Swissco Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves -$5.00. These are wonderful. I’m sure everyone has owned a set at one point. I was due for a new pair so I was so happy to get these.
Jergens Daily Moisture moisturizer -$.33. & H2O Spa Body Wash in Lotus -$1.36. The moisturizer is in my purse because it’s the perfect travel size and is a great moisturizer. I haven’t tried the body wash yet because I have a few to get through first, but it smells amazing and reminds me of summer.
The ‘That Awkward Moment’ Compact is just a small mirror for a movie promotion. I brought it to work and threw it in my desk. I needed a mirror there anyway!
Epic Blend Hemp Coconut Lip Balm -$3.39. When I saw I was getting this I was so excited. I love coconut everything. Then I tried it and hated it because it smelled weird and not what I expected. Now I am completely addicted to it and use it constantly. Weird, huh? It’s easily my favorite lip balm I’ve ever used.
In the box we also received a $5.00 cuticle oil by Nubar, mine is vanilla scented. I must have been pretty excited it about it because I forgot to photograph it and I have been using it daily. lol. I’ll be honest that it hasn’t really done a lot for me and I haven’t seen any results. But keep in mind I live in Wisconsin and it is freezing cold here so my hands are as dry as can be.
All in all, this box was so amazing for me. I realize these are super high end expensive samples, but they are all things I will happily use and I cannot say that about all the expensive stuff I get from other boxes. I especially love this box because it was free. 😉
