Beauty Box 5 - December Box Reveal

Hello Beauty Babes, and happy Makeup Monday to you! Makeup Monday is a fun linky party dedicated to all things beauty. ♥ If you are a beauty blogger/vlogger/instagrammer please feel free to link up any and all of your posts related to Makeup & Beauty! 

This week, Im going to share with you about a new beauty subscription box I am receiving c/o Beauty Box 5*
Beauty Box 5 is a subscription-based, beauty sampling program that delivers a box filled with 5 cosmetic samples to your door every month.
Cost: $12/month, $30/Quarterly, $99/annually
I love getting fun packages in the mail, and also trying new beauty products. What is great about this subscription box is its affordable, and you will definitely get your money's worth. I love the idea of being able to try new beauty samples before committing to spend the money on a full size! With this box I can try new samples (and sometimes full size products) each month. ♥ 

Here is what was in theDecember Box:
 These are the specific items I got in MY box (I did two quick unboxing videos too):

Product Details:

I received an adorable Love In Rio Palette by NYX - the name of the one I got is "Sway With Lola". I think this palette is completely adorable! I LOVE the little box detail on the case. The shadows are subtly pigmented, so they are perfect for those of you wanting to play with color without it looking too crazy. Here is the simple look I created with my palette:
Video of this look:

Body Drench Lotion... I have tried this brand before and really like it. They usually have the most delicious smelling scents. the sample I received was in "Original Scent" which really had no scent. So that was a bummer. But no biggy.

Ofra Cosmetics Sultry Lipgloss Plumper. I personally have never heard of this brand. Have you? Is it new? Either way I was excited to give it a try! I have never used a lip plumper before either. I need to use it a few more times to give a better review, but so far I like it. It gives a very subtle tingling feeling to the lips. Its not too gloopy for a gloss and gives a nice shade to my lips as well. 

Clean & Clear Morning burst hydrating gel moisturizer... I have not tried this yet at all! So I cannot say what I think. But I have tried Clean & Clear brand products before and know they are great. SO I am excited to try this sample. During the winter my face gets all kinds of dry, so I love trying moisturizers to see what will work best for me. ♥
Lastly I received the Every Beauty Flexible Foot Scrubber. I have very rough feet, because I walk around barefoot most of the time. So anything to help smooth those suckers out is appreciated by me! I have not used this yet, but am also excited to try it out.

Over all I, again, was completely HAPPY with this months box! Lots of great things to try out. I encourage you to join if you love happy mail and trying new products before a big commitment to buy! BB5 is so worth it. Annnnd I even have a sneak peek of what will be in the December box!!
