It is time for my monthly Beauty Box 5 Box Opening and Product Review!

What is Beauty Box 5?
Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service that delivers 5 cosmetic samples to your door for $12 a month. The samples are all deluxe and sometimes the boxes include full-sized products, too! Shipping is free on every box. :) When you subscribe to Beauty Box 5, each month you get a beauty box delivered right to your door! The boxes contain a mix of makeup, beauty accessories, skincare, fragrance, bath& body items, and nail products (Not all of these this month, but something from those categories). Beauty Box 5 is a great way to discover new products or get yourself out of a cosmetics rut!
Curious about what is inside the March 2014 box? Click "read more" below to see what is in the box and to hear my "first impressions" review of each product! :)

March Beauty Box 5 Theme:
"Out with the Old, In with the New!" Spring Cleaning:
This is such a great theme for the approaching Spring and Spring weather. I am certainly tired of Winter and am ready for the "change" of Spring! The Beauty Box 5 Card prompts us to make change by throwing out the old makeup that we never use (raising hand: I totally need to do that!) and to put a stop to bad habits. Clean and gorgeous skin is our new goal! :)

Beauty Box 5: March 2014 Box Opening and "First Impressions" Product Reviews:
  • Jane's Pick All Natural Soaps (small slice sample, full size cost $8.00): This is a small slice of handmade bar soap. It cleans with an all-natural soap blend that is infused with herbs and flowers. I am actually a HUGE fan of bar soap. So, I was thrilled to see this included in my Beauty Box 5 box! Plus, the scent...omg! I love it! The scent is a mix of lavender and something soft and creamy, I think, vanilla? I really adore the scent and like the moisturizing feel of this soap. I am not sure of the name of the scent that I got as it was not checked off on the package (it is either Peace or Purity...I am pretty sure it is Peace from the description of "lavender and litesa"). I only wish it was a full size bar! 
  • Tree Hut Shea Body Butter (sample size: 2 oz, full size cost $7.49): I have heard of this brand. So, I am curious to try out this product! This is a super thick and rich cocoa butter and shea butter body butter. The coconut lime scent is to-die-for and it makes me want the beach! I am such a user of body butters and love that I have a nice travel size one. This is going right in my travel bag! 
  • Bellapierre Cosmetics Makeup Base (sample size: .25 oz, full size cost: $18.99): This is an all-in-one ivory base that can work as a concealer, illuminator, and eyeshadow primer. The shade looks a bit too dark for me. However, I might be able to make it work. I am always curious to try out new concealing products as I have very dark circles.
  • H20 Plus Hand & Nail Cream (sample size 1 oz, full size cost: $15.00): My hands are sooooo dry. So, I am happy to find a hand cream in this box. This is a non-greasy lotion with silk proteins, Vit E, and marine botanicals. This is going right in my purse! A hand cream sample is always a welcome addition to a beauty box in my book as I always use these! :) 
  • Swissco Dual-Sided Facial Pad (Full size! Retail $2.00): This is a cute little natural loofah fiber facial exfoliating disc. You can just use this with your regular cleanser to boost your skins exfoliation. I will certainly try this soon (after I finish my current testing of a Japenese Konjac sponge). I really like manual exfoliation in the shower! So, I am super happy about this sample.
Overall, I think that this month's Beauty Box 5 box was pretty good! The box contains a nice variety of makeup and body care samples. I do wish that the soap was full size (just because I really adore the scent!). While the shade might not work with the Bellapierre Makeup Base, I am curious to try it.

Fellow Beauty Box 5ers, did you like your box this month?

I wasn't thrilled. I like color cosmetics! We'll see... I'll give them one more month.
