Beauty Box Five Happy Spa-lidays December 2014 Subscription BoxReview @beautybox5 #absoluteny #jaquabeauty #juicebeauty #nanacoco #luckynumber6

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the products for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

I love it....Beauty Box Five has the most amazing outlook no matter what the season and always stays gracefully grounded.  I can manage to keep it all together at work and at home with BB5 to help out my glam look.  BB5 shows you how you can squeeze in quality spaliday time into all the hustle and bustle between Christmas and Hanukkah with a few beauty assistants.  Check out all the trendiest of winter fashions and hot colors...don't forget to bookmark your fave finds and share with friends too. You just found a few goodies to share with friends before the 25th. 

Everyone loves getting the inside scoop. I like trying new beauty products from sunscreens to lipsticks and find that I often find new faves.  That is one of the great things about BB5.  You can try lots of new things and sub in new favorites without being stuck with a huge bottle of this or that. I happens to the best of us even with green intentions. Sometimes I look at a product in the store but I worry it might not be for me and I don't want to spend all that money if I don't know that I really like it.  Who needs something else to sit on the bathroom shelf or take up more room in a drawer? I would always feel guilty. Every once in a while you get lucky and the store has a sample or perhaps a beauty company sends you a sample and you get to try it first.  That is the premise behind BB5.

The ideal solution for all of us is brought to you by Beauty Box 5. They understand  and created their great sampling box program. Beauty Box 5 is an amazing subscription beauty box sampler that is delivered right to your doorstep (or mailbox) filled with a combination of 5 brand new cosmetic samples monthly, quarterly or annually. You can start out at just $12 a month or save more by getting a longer subscription. Signing up to receive Beauty Box 5 each month is a great new way for anyone from teens to moms to sample new cosmetic products and see what works for you.  Each month they include tips and tricks for the products on the back of this little card below to help you get the most out of your beauty samples each month.

Beauty Box 5 is always on the lookout for the latest new items to make the best matches for your own personal taste and lifestyle.  The prices are reasonable too. You can get a Beauty Box 5 monthly for $12, quarterly for $30 or annually for just $99.  Shipping is always free.  A fun way to check out lots  of the new beauty stuff out there without a whole lot of $$ investment. The great part is that if you like something, you can just up and buy the full size item, right?  Much better than buying a full size you-know-what-beauty-item and paying a fortune and then it sits in the makeup bag gathering dust because it doesn't work for you.

Beauty Box 5 mixes it up with their brands and keeps things adventurous. They source from a mix of niche, luxe, regular drugstore, vegan and eco-conscious brands.  One month you might get hair care, nail care, makeup, skin care, fragrances or even beauty accessories or a mix of any of the above.  I love the suspense!  You will get a carefully curated blend of travel, full-size and deluxe samples from their most current collection.

I just received the December Happy Spa-lidays Box this week.  The team at Beauty Box 5 wants to remind you to take care of yourself care no matter what the holly jolly gift giving season.  Don't forget about yourself as you start thinking about sales, Christmas and Hanukkah! Take a few minutes and take good care of yourself with some of these goodies. Sometimes it is a challenge, yes it is sure but I do it. We deserve to take a little bit of time to spa-ify and keep our look fresh. Beauty Box Five is here with a few special treats to help you along the way.  Here is the scoop on the amazing treats that were in this sweet sea blue December box:

As always It was chock full of amazing goodies that I could not wait to try. There were goodies for my hands, face and body tucked in there this month.  Lots of special items to keep me looking fresh and alluring wherever my chilly winter days take me.  They take me all over too....from the the mid-Atlantic to Florida and who knows where else this winter. We will have to see. I am one busy mama!

The first item in this box is a sample of Refillable Lucky Brand Lucky Number 6 scent. I love these mini sizes to take with me on my business trips. I love the fresh blend of lotus, tiger lily, jasmine and cashmere woods. It is light enough for everyday but fresh and brightly floral. A perfect option for a traveling mama like me to pick me up during those LONG meetings. My tip is to buy a full size of this scent and refill this one for travel with a clean dropper. Retail: $15.99-60.00 

The next product in the box is perfect for the holiday season.  Nanacoco Nail Polish in Wonderland Basket is a sparkling blend of gold and green flecks perfect for Christmas and beyond. This would be pretty as a topcoat over green or gold polish to add some style and cheer. I am a big fan of sparkling topcoats...they just add fun to the day.  If you are feeling adventurous you can dot it on or just do the tips in sparkle. Consider that this is a great stocking stuffer to snap up for those last minute gifts.  A super steal at $3.95 for 0.5 fl oz.

Have you ever tried Juice Beauty products? I love this Stem Cellular Moisturizer. My skin gets so dry I was impressed with the refreshed look my face showed after one application of this goodie. It contains a blend of organic plant and fruit oils to drench your skin in healthy moisture. They suggest twice a day applications for the best opportunity to improve wrinkles, crinkles and sun ravaged skin. Of course hydration is included! The price is reasonable at $65.00 1.7 oz

I adore scented creams and lotions for two reasons. My skin is so dry plus I love scent. Jaqua Pink Chpagne Hand Creme with Meadowfoam Seed Oil smells just wonderful with its light blend of naturals oils and fruit extracts.  This is a winner for me especially during the cold winter days. I am looking forward to keeping my hands soft and moisturized and it smells so amazing. It actually comes in assorted scents so you can grab a few and switch around like I think I will do. This is staying right in my purse...ready when I need it so my hands are soft and lovely. A good deal at $18-36.00 each 

The last item in this exciting December box for a final surprise is a handy little container of polish remover with a new twist,  Absolute! New York Nail Polish Remover Pads.  I never tried these before but they made quick work of my old polish. This little container is so small it is perfect for quick work touch ups or even travel. The Spring Fresh scent was a welcome surprise I love the acetone free salon formula. I can't believe 32 pads were in the tiny container before I used it. A complete steal at $2.99 for 32 pads.

So, are you ready to get in on the fun? The ladies from BB5 have put together another really amazing box full of beauty fun perfect to take you straight into Fall. Don't forget to join Beauty Box 5 and get in on the goodies to keep you looking fab all four season.
