I still get excited about subscription boxes coming in the mail. Getting mail is exciting when you know what’s coming, let alone when the package is a box full of surprise goodies! Let’s dive in, shall we?
This is only my second Beauty Box 5, but I definitely enjoyed the contents of this box more than the last. It just happened to have everything I like!
First up were these two Amala Body Butter samples. I love lotion, and constantly slather it on in the winter thanks to extra dry skin. This lotion is excellent. Rubs in great without a greasy residue, and leaves your skin feeling really fresh. So far, it’s one of my favorite lotions I’ve tried. Since it’s just a sample, I’ve been reserving it for my driest areas (which for me is my knees and the heels of my feet) and it has truly made a difference using it daily.
This polish and accompanying nail caviar were actually the two things I was least excited about, simply because I’m not a huge fan of pink. I do have a pink nail polish, but it’s a very pastel pink. However, my three year old was thrilled with a new pink nail polish! I haven’t tested it out yet, but I am curious to see what the nail caviar is like.
These hair ties are great! I love that they add just a little pizazz to an outfit, without being a crazy accessory. Definitely a little nicer than your regular run of the mill hair tie. Love the color options too – something to go with pretty much any outfit.
Lastly there was a new mascara, which I was thrilled about. Mascara is one of the few makeup products I use on nearly a daily basis so to have a new one made me a happy gal! This really adds length, but it definitely doesn’t do much in the way of volume. I’ve found best results in using it over a coat of my volumizing mascara – then I get the oomph of length and volume.
And of course, the monthly card of products in this box. I am seriously considering buying some of the Amala lotion. . .totally in love with it right now!
A big thumbs up for Beauty Box 5 number two. Wonder what March will bring!
