Beauty Box 5 December 2016 PartyPerfect @beautybox5 #beautybox5 #jellypongpong #liquidgossamer #Neutrogena #amlactin #professionalhairspray #hikaricosmetics

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


I love it....Beauty Box five has the fun beauty ideas for every day of the year whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter.  My little blue box from BB5 helps me manage to keep it all together at work and at home to freshen up my glam look no matter what the day holds for me.  BB5 shows you how you can squeeze in quality beauty time into even the days you gotta speed things along with a few little special products.  Check out all the trendiest of autumn fashions now that the long, hot days of summer are starting to fade! Don't forget to share your fave finds and share with friends too. Take a peek at a few beauty goodies to go along with your pretty fashions and maybe grab a few extra for friends. A BB5 subscription makes a great gift any friend would appreciate all year long.

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 beauty 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 and even a savvy fashionista Gramma to sample new cosmetic products and see what works for you. Good skin care and the joy of beauty has no age limit!  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 Party Perfect box this week.  The December theme is all all about being the life of the party while staying beautiful in your own special way.  In between running from party to party this holiday season, squeeze in just a little touch of pampering for your skin and hair so you always look party perfect. Beauty Box 5 always has all the tools and tricks to help you look pretty from your head to your toes.  Okay, but just how do you get your hair, lips, eyes and nails looking just so? Let BB5 help you out! The team at Beauty Box 5 wants to remember you are it is all about taking care of yourself.  They show you just how to style your hair and eliminate the frizzies. They give you the tools to freshen up your nails super fast and glam them up with hot winter colors.  Just as often they tuck in moisturizers and even a gentle wash for the face or body. This month the focus is on the skin and hair. Beauty Box 5 is here with a ton of special treats to help you along the way.  Here is the scoop on the amazing treats that were in this month's sweet sea blue box:

As always, my box was filled with of lovely goodies that I could not wait to try. There were treats for my hands, face and body tucked in there this month.  There were several special items to keep me looking fresh and alluring wherever I go-or even if I stay home.  Even if I am home or staying local, I will still be looking good with all my goodies stashed in my bag.


The first item in this box is Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer. Winter chills can lead to dull looking skin but this little tube gives you an easy fix. This great illuminator will add all the radiance you need this holiday season. Who can't use a little more sparkle and shine when it comes to all those parties? Heck, I need shine and radiance just to get out the door and go to work. This is a lightweight, liquid radiance product that adds soft highlights wherever you need them. Dot it on or blend with your fingers. You can even use a clean make up brush. I tried my Liquid Gossamer this past weekend since I was headed out to yet another holiday event. It looked great and blended in really nicely to my skin. Super easy to use. It added a gentle touch of radiance, just enough to add a bit of sparkle and life. You can touch the cheekbones, tip of the nose or brow bone to add a soft shimmer and a bit of radiance any time you need it.  Retail $22.95


Who doesn't know this classic shower and bath gel? Neutrogena Rainbath Shower and Bath Gel is the perfect companion to any shower or bath routine. It is super gentle and has a familiar light scent that will transport you back. It is a fresh combination of spices, fruit and herbs that is a perfect start to any day. If you are prepping for a party this is a great way to wake up. You don't need a lot to get a good lather either. A dime-sized dab will do you. You can use your classic washcloth or sponge...break out the loofah to get a super scrub on. The lather is easy on your skin and it rinses very clean. I always slather on lotion (like the one below) to lock in the moisture after my bath or shower too.   Retail $7.24.


Professional Freezing Hair Spray is the ideal bargain option to hold your updo or those pretty curls for all the holiday parties this season.  It can be a challenge to get my hair exactly the way I want it whether I curled it, straightened it or pinned it up into an elegant updo. This hairspray is my new best friend that won't have me running to the bank for more cash. It really holds any style like a champ and you can just relax and not have to worry about flyaways. It doesn't have any kind of tacky feel either.  The mini size is perfect for any purse large or small...so enjoy pretty hair all day and night.  Retail $3.00
  

Winter means the air is getting cold and dry and we all know what that means for your skin. It is critical to be prepared with gentle but effective creams.  Amlactin Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion. This patented formula with Ultrapex combined with ceramides is the ideal way to relieve the dry skin. I know I am not the only poor soul who suffers in the winter with super dry and itchy skin. The secret is locking in the moisture with the combination of ingredients in this gem of a lotion. It can work for up to 24 hours too! Want to know my best secret? I have been doing this for years and the peeps at Amlactin say it is the best. Apply after your daily shower or bath (tip: use the body wash above!) while your skin is still damp. You will be ready for all those holiday parties with soft, comfortable skin. This will be a fave for fall and winter and all year long.  Retail $2.99.


The final product is the Hikari Lip Gloss. These highly pigmented lip glosses are ideal to wear solo or you can just layer over lipstick for a more intense look. This is a semi-matte formula so it provides rich moisture and a color that truly lasts throughout the day or night. If you are looking for an easy way to get a beautiful look in no time, here is your perfect party look. I love the size too, since these lip glosses slip into a small purse or pocket so you can touch up as you please.  Retail $13.00

The ladies from BB5 have put together another really amazing box full of beauty fun perfect to take you straight through winter and right into spring and even summer.

Perfect! Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème is the ultimate in liquid lipstick @influenster @marcbeauty #lemarc liquid lip creme #contest


I recently received a new VoxBox from Influenster just in time for the holiday season.  I love beauty products so you can bet I was excited when I saw it was from Marc Jacobs Beauty. If you haven't heard of Influenster you need to check them out. They are a fun site which lets you interact with friends via social and share your experiences with new products. I have found so many great things through Influenster over the past few years. You share your reviews and experiences and you may get the opportunity to try some complimentary like I have.  I know you want to hear all about my new goodies from Marc Jacobs Beauty so I will not make you wait any longer.


I was super excited because I have used Marc Jacobs Beauty products for a while now and I love them. Bonus for me because they included two lip products from this beauty line. The first one was LeMarc Liquid Lip Creme from in the beautiful neutral color called, "Yours to Try." I also received a Longwear Lip Pencil (P)Outliner in the color "Nude(ist)" from Marc Beauty. Hurry on over to Sephora and take a peek at all the colors butmeanwhile I will tell you more about my experience with both of them. The Longwear Lip Pencil (P)Outliner is a great neutral color lipliner that goes on very smoothly. It is self-sharpening which is an added bonus. I found it matched my lips just perfectly. It felt very comfortable and natural on my lips. It was easy to apply the LeMarc Liquid Lip Creme over the lipliner. It has a wand that picks up just enough of the product each time to provide a smooth application. This would be a good product for a novice or an advanced makeup kind of girl. 

The final look was very professional. I like that my lips felt moisturized and smooth but the lip creme stayed on for hours. I even drank a big cup of coffee and found it didn't transfer like my usual lipsticks or glosses do. The color stayed true and look professional for work. This would be a good everyday product and the colors are great for day time or an evening look.

Powered by Brandbacker

The ones that hurt your feet but they look gorgeous with your sparkly dress. Yes, those ones. Well, this year the Holiday Party season is upon us! I am going to avoid tired and sore feet though because I have a little help from Sole Patches. I will be able to dance a little bit longer and keep running back to the open bar and buffet table to get my favorites more time. 

Sole Patches are my little secret weapon that let me doing everything in my most beautiful but high heeled shoes without pain. I know you want in on my secret so I will share. Sole Patches are a thin cushioned patch that sticks onto the ball of your foot. Sole Patches are natural skin colored and are nearly undetectable no matter what shoes you are wearing.

PORON® is a special material that's shock-absorbing, antimicrobial, anti-odor, and even has moisture-repelling properties. This combination of benefits makes it an ideal solution for feet. These little Sole Patches are perfect for comfortable feet in any kind of heeled shoes.

I love how versatile Sole Patches are too. Depending on your style of shoes, you have several options in how you can use Sole Patches. One side has a sticker that you can put directly onto the ball of your foot, the heel of your foot, or you can even stick them directly onto your shoe.Any way you stick it, Sole Patches cushion you feet to avoid pain and discomfort.

Zicam® Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs help shorten the symptoms of a cold @crowdtap #sponsored


I was pleased to try the Zicam® Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs recently and impressed with how easy they were to use. It is a simple, natural option to support my immune system against colds. The swabs were comfortable to use and I liked the portability as well. I will keep these on hand for winter colds! 

Colds really are no fun for anyone, and all of us are susceptible to them. A great thing this winter is that  Zicam® Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs can shorten the length of your cold. Who wouldn't be happy a cold could be over sooner? I personally am thrilled to have an option like Zicam® Cold Remedy on my side. It is easy to use too but remember that Zicam® Cold Remedy shortens colds when taken at the first sign. Don't wait or delay either. Zicam® Cold Remedy products do not prevent colds. There are no known products that can prevent a cold but not everyone knows that so I am telling you. It is 100% correct. Zicam® Cold Remedy was formulated to shorten the duration of the common cold only. Zicam® Cold Remedy does not work instantly so be patient. The product helps you shorten a cold when taken at the first sign of a cold, not as soon as it is taken. There is a difference. You should keep taking it until symptoms completely subside and always use as directed. I advise checking in with your personal physician as well.

Here is the really skinny on Zicam® Cold Remedy. It reduces symptom severity by 45% by the midpoint of the cold when taken at symptom onset. I find  Zicam® Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs to be such an easy option to take and use too. It gives me back some control when I feel yucky from a cold. It really makes a difference and helps me to feel better faster.

Beautiful skin is easy with NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream @neostrataskin #gotitfree #skinactive


Disclosure: Powered by Brandbacker
Skincare has many challenges after age 40. It is a delicate balance since you want to look gorgeous and natural but on the other hand you want your skin to look smooth and have a glow. I recently found a wonderful solution that makes the balancing act so much easier. NeoStrata skin care products improve the visible signs of aging and support a variety of dermatological conditions. Even if you have issues with acne, dry skin, hyperkeratosis and skin clarity you can use NeoStrata and see a real difference in your skin quality according to the company. I had some of these issues including skin clarity and dry skin and I can tell you personally I saw a big improvement once I started using NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream. They use advanced hydroxy acid technology including Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs) and Polyhydroxy Bionic Acids. NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream is a gentle but effective product that is worth it when you see the results.

The biggest issues I had were with signs of aging in my neck area. Many of my friends have issues with the neck and decolletage. This NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream was specially ormulated to help reverse visible signs of aging in the neck and décolletage. I noticed a difference in the firmness and fine lines in my neck after only a week of using this. The company shared that it is formulated to improve skin so that is firmer, more lifted and younger looking.

I always like to know what is in the beauty and skincare products I use these days. This anti-aging neck cream is formulated with three clinically proven ingredients. Each ingredient works in synergy to deliver optimal lifting and firming. Pro-Amino Acid helps enhance pro-collagen in the skin, while NeoCitriate® helps promote new collagen and NeoGlucosamine® enhances the surrounding support. This is a powerful trio of agents and they work completely synergistically to plump, build volume and firm sagging skin. An additional benefit that NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream offers is that NeoGlucosamine® is also a gentle exfoliant. The exfoliating action helps reduce the appearance of uneven pigment and age spots that often appear in the neck and décolletage area. Apple Stem Cell Extract is another ingredient in this state of the art cream. The Apple Stem Cell Extract supports the longevity of skin’s essential cells. This support works to help skin to behave like more youthful skin.

The company has done its own testing as well. NeoStrata Skin Active Triple Firming Neck Cream significantly improved neck texture, décolletage texture, and décolletage pigmentation at 8, 12, and 16 weeks based on dermatologist grading. Data on file, NeoStrata Company, Inc.

If you are looking for a complete system, please know that you can find that in NeoStrata Skin Active. This is a comprehensive antiaging system of potent professional products with active benefit ingredients that work synergistically to address the broadest spectrum of visible signs of aging. The NeoStrata Skin Active system is made up of high-performance products, including NeoStrata Skin Active Triple Firming Neck Cream. The NeoStrata Skin Active system is made up of high-performance products, each formulated to deliver outstanding rejuvenating effects, including significant improvement in the appearance of deep wrinkles, crow's feet, sagging and uneven pigmentation.

NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream:

  • Formulated to help reverse visible signs of aging in the neck and décolletage for skin that is firmer, more lifted, and younger looking
  • Pro-Amino Acid helps enhance collagen
  • NeoCitriate® helps encourage new collagen
  • NeoGlucosamine® gently exfoliates skin to help reduce the appearance of uneven pigment

NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream is simple to use as well.: Gently smooth over neck and décolletage twice daily.

Recommended usage: Daily AM/PM

The simpler the better when it comes to shopping too. You can find NeoStrata right online for easy shopping anytime too. It comes in a generous 2.8 oz size and is $84.00. You can also find NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Triple Firming Neck Cream right on the NeoStrata website. Super easy! Let me know how it works for you.

The first item in this box is a Manna Kadar Lip Locked Stain in Shae. This one is a winner when you think about lip care. I really need moisture and color but I don't have time to reapply all day long. This is something different too since it has a primer, stain and a lip gloss all wrapped up in one little bottle.  I love the size since it fits into the smallest of my holiday purses too. This innovative lip product really lasts all day long even after a big turkey dinner and a few glasses of wine.  Retail $24.00



Our friends at Beauty Box 5 added something great to this month's box when they included just the kind of brush that we all need.  Beauty Box 5 Cut That Crease Angle Brush is the perfect companion to the dow trio included in this box.

It is the perfect size and has the ideal angle to gently dust on shadow and apply it precisely where you want it. It is super comfortable in my hands and makes blending and shading a cinch. Retail $10.


Briogeo Deep Conditioning Hair Mask is just the thing I need to renew my hair this time of year.  The chilly weather always makes my hair so dry.  I love that this formula helps me get my hair back to business! The mask repairs damage and breakage from hot tools or over-washing. One of the things I love about this hair mask is that it has no sulfates, parabens, silicones, artificial colors or fragrances. If your skin is sensitive, this would be a great option to try. It is super easy to use too...just massage in hair from the ends up after shampooing. Relax and leave it in for 10 minutes then rinse it out and enjoy pretty hair again.  Retail $36.00
  

Winter is the time for vacations and getaways but it can be challenge to be good with packing your cosmetics and ways to remove them. Who wants to tote a giant bottle of makeup remover? Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes have it all covered. You can even buy two so that you can keep one at home to get off your makeup fast and get cozy with a movie or a special someone.  I like the gentle but effective formula that is built into these super soft towelettes. They really get all the makeup off easily with no rubbing or irritation. Would you believe they even work on waterproof eyeliner? These are appropriate for sensitive skin as well. This will be a fave for fall and winter and all year long.  Retail $6.49.


The final product is the Peony Shadow Trio in Gilded. This is an easy way to get a beautiful look in no time. The bronze shades are perfect for the fall and winter and add a warm look to any outfit. I adore how bronze is a great neutral that adds some sparkle. The shades are highly pigmented, super smooth and formulated to last all day long.  You can wear one of the shades by itself for a fresh day look or all three for a look with dimension for an evening out. The color options are fantastic and you can customize a look for your special evening. Retail $17.95

Prime Objective Perfecting Face Primer is a wonderful base for beautiful skin @studiogearcosmetics #SGearCosmetics #sponsored #studiogearcosmetics

Powered by Brandbacker
I wish I knew about face primers 10 or 20 years ago but I don't think they existed. Face primers are such an amazing makeup tool that you really need to consider if you have not tried one before. The quality varies along with the ingredients. The objective of any face primer is to essentially to prepare the skin in a similar way as a painter primes a canvas. As I mentioned, I have used face primers before and I was interested in trying this new one from Studio Gear Cosmetics. It is called Prime Objective Skin Perfecting Face Primer. This novel face primer is more than just your average silicone product though and I was pretty impressed with the results.

PRIME OBJECTIVE is a silicone based face primer that gently retouches and visually diminishes imperfections in the surface texture of the skin. The ingredients actually diffuse the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles temporarily and it really works. PRIME OBJECTIVE contains a sustained release liposome system fortified with retinol that can help support cell turnover too.  It also contains a milk protein complex Bifida ferment Lysate and Lactose to help balance and protect the skin from everyday environmental stresses. The “skin perfecting” effect of this state-of-the-art formula is further enhanced with special optical diffusers. So you get all the benefits of the face primer plus a whole lot more. My skin looked great before I even put on my CC cream. Prime Objective has the added benefit of being Paraben-Free and Fragrance-Free. The other ingredients include Bifida ferment Lysate, Lactose, Pro-Biobalance, Retinol and anti-oxidants.

StudioGear has been crafting professional quality beauty and makeup products for years. If you haven't tried a face primer, this is a great time to make the leap. StudioGear makes all kind of makeup looks a cinch with easy to use tutorials too.

Jif® Peanut Butter and Naturally Flavored Cinnamon Spread

Jif® Peanut Butter and Naturally Flavored Cinnamon Spread



Jif® Peanut Butter and Naturally Flavored Cinnamon Spread Is a delicious option to spread on toast, bagels or crackers. I enjoy dipping my apples in this yummy spread or slathering it on a banana. Any which way you try it, it tastes delicious. Jif® Peanut Butter and Naturally Flavored Cinnamon Spread has a great consistency and is easy to spread. I like that the flavors are natural which is a good step in the right direction for Jif.


My daughter and I got creative this week with Jif and put together some fun but simple snacks and recipes. The whole family likes the smooth texture of Jif and how easy it is to incorporate into all kinds of meals, snacks, recipes and especially lunch. Jif makes it easy to put together some fun snacks for the kids that give them energy and encourage healthy eating. Add Jif to celery sticks and top with dried cranberries or raisins. Blend Jif with ice, Greek yogurt, strawberries and a dash of cinnamon for a healthy, fast breakfast on the go. The ideas are endless!

We made a yummy Jif Power Parfait. We blended Jif with Greek yogurt and layered it with strawberries and homemade granola. It looks pretty and tastes super yummy. This is a great recipe that you can prep ahead and have a healthy, energizing snack ready when you need it. Let me know some of your yummy recipe ideas!

Splenda is an easy way to sweeten your fave recipes and beverages naturally


I had the opportunity to try SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener recently. I was impressed with the fresh, sweet and totally natural flavor. It is totally non-GMO too. It tastes great in my coffee and tea and dissolves quickly too. I was so impressed that I wrote a letter to them to share my feelings. 

Dear SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener:

You have changed my whole life for the better. I never thought I could meet something just like you. I dreamed about you but didn't think you could possibly exist. You are the best thing that could ever happen to me. 

Love 
Glamamama


I was surprised at how delicious the SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener was in my morning coffee. This new sweetener has no bitter flavor at all. It really mimics the natural flavor of sugar. It blended easily into my hot coffee and dissolved completely. This is a great low calorie sweetener that keeps it natural. It will be perfect for all my hot and cold beverages plus to sorinkle on fruit or other foods.
