Hello, everybody! It’s that time of the month again. The unboxing of our favorite beauty box subscription… the Beauty Box 5! This box came really early this month. I believe it was on the first week. I am really sorry I haven’t gotten to do this review earlier. It’s just that our household have gone a little cray-cray over schedules and stuff due to the sudden changes now that school have started for husband and moi. So there… enough about me and let’s get on with our review, shall we?

For my review, I got the Beauty Box 5 box for the month of January.
And this month’s box theme is: Cheers To You (not actually sure if that’s the theme name or just a greeting… LOL).
Here’s what I got:
Nubar –Cuticle & Nail Oil
I have received other Nubar products from my previous BB5 boxes and I really like them. They ahve really great nail polish, especially the glittery ones which are my favorite. I use them as top coats and does really great job in keeping my nail polish intact and last longer. This cuticle and nail oil (as it says on the card included in this box) is suppose to sooth inflamed skin and psoriasis by gently massaging a small amount around the nails. Ok, when I used to get my nails done at a nail salon before it have happened, not once but actually multiple of times that my nails, particularly my toes, got mutilated by the one who did my nails. Neosporin have worked well on those poor puppies and have never swollen up or got infected (thank God!). I haven’t tried this one yet but I love the idea of this product. I just hope it’ll serve it’s purpose.
Swissco –Bath & Shower Exfoliating Gloves
You can never go wrong with this kind of product, right?! It is just very helpful and for me, an absolute must have. I cannot remember if I had gotten this brand before but it does sound familiar. Anyway, I just love the color that I’ve got. The pink on the picture is a little bit too bright but in person it is a couple of shades lighter. The texture is great, it won’t be to harsh when used on sensitive areas, so that’s great. I assume that I’m the only one who’ll be using this but if ever husband tries to steal this and use it on himself. size wise it’ll work on him. The fabric is stretchy.. making it a one size fits all.
Jergens –Daily Moisturizer
I am an absolute fan of this brand/product. I love all their scents and every formula. My grandma uses it, my mom use it and I use it. Well, it’s not a product I use everyday but I do always have a bottle of this in the bathroom all the time. And this travel size is just perfect for my purse. I could use this as a hand cream or whatnot.
H2O Plus –Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash
This brand is new to me. I haven’t seen this brand at the store where I shop either. I love the packaging, color and the clear formula. Size wise, this is perfect for when we travel. I always have a stash of travel size toiletries and this will be added to it. The scent, I am not really liking it. It reminds of that hotel I have stayed at in Germany. I mean the entire hotel smells like this. That sea breeze scent mixed with disinfectant kind of way?! I don’t know… just not loving this but still will be put to good use.
Epic Blend –Hemp Coconut Lip Balm
Here’s another brand that is new to me. The cannabis leaf print on the packaging really drew me into it. Anyway, hemp is another term for cannabis plant. I have known that cannabis sativa are widely used as a drug. The hemp seeds have great essential fatty acids content, proteins, amino acids, etc. So I think this balm is really great. This is also gluten and petroleum free, non GMO, and not tested on animals. And did I mention that this really smells great. It reminds me of the beach! It also feels really great on the lips. It worked great on my eternally dry, chaffed lips.
There’s our 5 products! But wait, here’s more!!! Bonus Item!!!
That Awkward Moment –Compact Mirror
This is a promotional item for the movie That Awkward Moment, coming to theaters on January 31st. Check out movie trailer at: http://www.thatawkwardmomentmovie.com/
This month’s box verdict:
Aside from the H2O Plus product, I must say this is box is great!!! I love that bonus item. I am one of those women who doesn’t have a mirror in the purse… Well, not anymore! Everything is very use-able. My favorite is the lip balm. I just love it. I think it works better than my “go to” balms, the Burt’s Bees and Carmex. This is not the best box among the boxes I have received. On a scale of 1-10, I think this is a good 7.
