Let’s see what’s in the December 2016 Beauty Box 5 box!
Everything was shipped in a small box with the Beauty Box 5 logo on the side.
A peek inside!
December’s theme was “Party Perfect” and the info card listed all of the items in the box, as well as photos, descriptions, and retail prices for each one.
Professional Freezing Finish Spray ($3) – A humidity-resistant finishing spray that keeps your hair in place while adding body & texture. Purse-size for taking on the go.
Hikari Lip Gloss in “Merlot” ($13) – FULL SIZE! This pretty gloss — in “Merlot” (an intense red mauve) — can be worn alone or layered with your favorite lipstick. The highly pigmented, semi-matte formula provides both long-lasting color as well as hydration. (Subscribers received one of various shade options.)
Neutrogena Rainbath Shower & Bath Gel (~$2?) – A bath/shower gel that helps cleanse and condition without a soapy residue. Its clean-rinsing formula features a refreshing scent of spices, fruits, and herbs.
Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer ($22.95) – FULL SIZE! This 78% natural, 48% water-based liquid illuminator gives skin instant radiance while keeping it moisturized at the same time. Just dot onto your cheekbones, brow bones, down the middle of your nose and anywhere you want a soft light. The formula is free of mineral oils, phthalates, parabens, and animal by-products.
Amlactin Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion ($2.99) – A fragrance-free ultra moisturizing body lotion that helps to heal extremely rough, flaky, and dry skin. It promises instant visible results so I’m looking forward to trying it on my insanely dry knuckles. (Ick!)
Yet another high value offering from Beauty Box 5! While I’ll personally use maybe 2 of them items, it’s still a great collection of products for just $12. — The total retail value of December’s box was roughly $44! 😀 — Remember, for a limited time new subscribers will get a FREE Marsk eyeshadow in their first box with a purchase of a subscription! No coupon code needed.
