About a week ago I went to my mailbox and discovered this month’s Beauty Box Five had arrived! Hooray! If you read Bullock’s Buzz often then you know I have an addiction to discovering new monthly subscription boxes, and one of my favorite beauty supply boxes is Beauty Box Five! For those of you not familiar with Beauty Box Five, for around $12 a month you will receive four to five samples of beauty products from top brands such as Blinc, Blum, Ferro Cosmetics, Model Co. and many more! It is the perfect way to try new items and see how well you like them before you pay full price. It completely erases the possibility of you spending money on a product only to discover it doesn’t work for you. To learn more about this great subscription service, visit the Beauty Box Five website.
April’s box was full of unique items from some great companies, many of which I am still using to this day with plenty of product left! So while you may be thinking, “hmm, sample-sized items?”, the majority are more like travel size items that can last you several months, if not longer! So, are you ready to see what came in May’s box? Here we go!
Ferro Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow $17.00 0.14 oz.
All Ferro cosmetics are made with all natural ingredients, only. All products are vegan, paraben-free, and are never tested on or made with animal products. The mineral eyeshadow I received is part of the Eye Candy collection in a pale brown, matte color called Hollywood Blvd. You can use it dry, but I noticed you get even better results if you dampen your brush first! The pigments in Ferro eye shadow are intense and long-lasting, a little bit goes a long way!
Jean Pierre Tanning Towelettes $8.99 for 10 towelettes
Like all of Jean Pierre products, these tanning towelettes are made only with the finest ingredients, are hypoallergenic and have been dermatologist and clinically tested. They towelettes come in handy single-use packets. One towelette will provide you with a natural bronze glow. To use, simply apply in a circular motion to dry skin. Although this is the first time I have tried a tanning towelette, I was impressed to see that it actually went on evenly and convincingly, it doesn’t look fake at all. There was no streaking or uneven application, and I really like how it is not too dark.
Model Co. Black Eyeliner $18.00
This long-lasting, bold color eyeliner is enriched with Shea Butter to hydrate your skin while it defines your eyes. The sample I was sent came in black, and it is highly pigmented to where a little bit goes a long way! The Shea Butter helps it to literally glide on without any pulling or snagging. I love that it comes with a built-in sharpener in the lid so I no longer have to carry an extra item in my make up bag! This is quickly becoming my favorite eye liner!
Coolway Transform Styling Spray
For use on wet hair only, this styling spray provides long-lasting hold while keeping your hair soft and hydrated! The unique formula is made with Silk Proteins and Ionic Botanicals that help to lock in moisture so it does not evaporate when you are applying heat to dry and/or style hair. But the best part is, after spraying Transform on towel dried hair, you can blow dry hair at half the time or straighten hair at half the heat! I usually let my naturally curly hair air dry, but I wanted to test this out. So I towel dried my hair as directed, sprayed a generous amount of Transform and combed it through, then blow dried my hair. The result? Soft, frizz-free curls that held all day long! This formula is not tested on animals. It does not contain any synthetic color, parabens, sulfates or thalates.
La Fresh Deodorant Wipes $19.90 for 48 packets
Like all of La Fresh products, these antiperspirants wipes are eco-friendly and biodegradable. They come in handy, single-use packets which are the perfect size to keep in your purse, bag or pocket! With summer coming on, it gets hot, and people get sweaty! You really want to be sure your antiperspirant is doing its job, but there are times when you may need to touch up your antiperspirants. Sometimes you may forget to put on your antiperspirant in the morning, or maybe you go for a work out or a swim and left your antiperspirant at home. No problem! Grab a La Fresh wipe, open it, apply and you are good to go! They provide powerful wetness and odor protection, are freshly scented and come in a non-whitening formula so you don;t have to worry about white stains. I was impressed with how well the worked! I used one of these wipes in place or my usual deodorant one day, and found that this worked just as well! Definitely a handy thing to carry with you, especially when it is hot!
So there you have it! Five products from top brands to try! Some are new products I was not aware of, while others may replace brands I already use. I would have spent a pretty penny had I bought them from the store, and possibly lost some money on items I may not have liked! That is why I like Beauty Box Five!
