February Beauty Box 5! I've been with them since the second box...are they really on their first anniversary? This is a box that had started off slow but has grown to be one of my favourites! They include amazing, unique products. I get a ton of brands I've never heard of and the price is right at just $12 a month US! You can get it cheaper if you subscribe for a year! If you're interested in trying it, you can go to my referral link HERE. If I were to keep 3 subs, this would definitely be one of them!
They included a cute anniversary card!
They included this note in the box. They did actually post it on their facebook page so people could start referring before boxes got to us. I don't generally do that sort of thing, because I don't like to be pushy with referrals. If someone stumbles across a link, or when I once in a blue moon post it on facebook...great!
Also included was a $50 gift card to iTRAIN. I haven't looked too much into this yet, but I will be checking it out since I am actively trying to lead a healthier lifestyle.
The first thing was a set of Brush Guards. I'm on the fence with these so far. I can't wait to try them on my brushes and see what the fuss is about. They are pricey though... 4 of them will set you back $5.50!
Inside the package there were 3 brush guards; 1 for each of 3 different types of brushes.
Here are the directions to use them, it's really straight forward.
This is what they look like unstretched.
As you can see, they stretch quite a bit! This is the biggest one I put over my thumb.
Next, is a Coolway Boost serum that is meant to be used with the Coolway system for optimum results. This to me is basically a one time use. You need to drench your hair in this stuff. This is speaking from Coolway experience. I hope to have a review of that soon! I'm not sure what the benefits of this product would be if you didn't have a Coolway System. It is really pricey... 8 oz is $39.95.
This is an H20 Bath Aquatics shampoo. I don't mind receiving shampoos to try, but I prefer them to come with a conditioner. For over half a year I've been using sulfate/paraben free shampoos. This one doesn't say it is, but I would still be willing to try it. It has a unique non shampoo smell, it almost smells like it would be bubble bath. It's $14 for 8.5oz.
Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub in Coconut Lime. I really like the body butter we received previously and I am really looking forward to trying this product as well! I have a lot of body stuff to catch up on...this stuff doesn't go very fast! It smells AMAZING...like something from a spa. I'll probably fast track this one to use ASAP. I think I'm going to fall in love with it! Especially, if you have bottles of it laying around! lol 18 oz retails for $7.49.
Look how pretty and blue it is!
The last item we received was...this! Do you have any idea what it could be?
A folding brush/mirror set! I've never seen round one and this is really cute! Don't mind the mirror smudges...my 5 year old son was trying to be helpful by rubbing the fog from the cold off of it. ;) It sat in the mailbox while I was at work.
Out pops the brush!
This is the whole box! I was pretty happy with it! We get some neat products and good sizes from BB5! I really wanted to get this post up quickly, so I will be back tomorrow with an edit on prices/sample sizes and value of the box!
Hope you've all had a great night...and I am off to bed!
