The First Beauty Box Five of the year is dedicated to hair and nails! It came stocked with some handy travel size items that are perfect for my upcoming trips!
Before I delve into the box let’s review how the service works. Beauty Box Five is a subscription that starts at $12 for the monthly box, $30 for the quarterly subscription and $99 dollars for a year. You receive a mix of luxury items and common brands with products for: hair, skin and nails as well as fragrances and beauty accessories. The box contains 5 products and usually includes 1-3 full sized items. It is a great way to sample a variety of new brands!
Not Your Mother’s Hair Care Plump for Joy (sample includes) & Salon Grafix Hair Spray (sample)
I am all for voluminous hair that is full of bounce and body so the Plump for Joy Thickening Hair Lift Spray is a great addition to the box and one I haven’t tried before. The formula is made to strengthen and add life to limp strands and I like that it can be used on both damp and dry hair. I can see this coming in handy between wash days when hair is a tad greasy and flat or when you crave luscious beach waves. It also has a delicious fruity scent that is great for spring.
The mini hair spray is not very interesting but when you need mega hold it works! I have a few upcoming trips planned and this maximum hold, humidity resistant formula enriched with antioxidants and vitamins is definitely coming with me to help keep stray hairs in place as I soak up some sun.
Novex Bamboo Sprout Deep Conditioning Treatment (sample pack/one treatment)
The first time I received a Novex sample in my BB5 I was overjoyed with how well it worked to fortify and soften my long hair so I was happy to sample another formula! This treatment is rich and nourishing to help silken dry, brittle hair for serious winter rescue!
Bodipure Keratin Gloves (full size included: $5.00) & Nails Inc. Polish (full size included: $9.99)
Along with the deep conditioner this was also one of my favorite items in the box. With frequent hand washing and the drying winter air my hands have taken a beating! My moisturizer application has nearly tripled and when all else fails a revitalizing treatment that strengthens nails and heals cuticles is always a fabulous option.
The Nails Inc Polish I received this month in the shade Hyde Park Place was disappointing. Some of you may appreciate the grey-green stone-like hue but I for one am not feeling it. It is just too boring, plain and totally blah for my taste which is unfortunate since the last few polishes I got were also shades that didn’t really stand out.
Scratch Custom Accent Nail Wraps (full size/ comes with four: $6.00)
The nail wraps in this month’s box kind of made up for the mundane polish but it didn't come with very many. The gold and white patterns are stylish, pretty and delicate which make great accent nails and compliments many shades of polish.
This month’s box was decent but if I’m going to get any more nail polish I’d like some brighter hues. I’d also like to see some high quality makeup!
