i received my March box from Beauty Box 5 the other day and was really pleased when i opened it up and saw what was inside. i've been receiving boxes for quite a few months and this is one of my favorites. i love the combination of skincare and makeup, especially the items that i received this month.
dual-sided facial pad: i'm excited about this for exfoliating during the spring and summer months. i don't exfoliate often, so i'm hoping this pad will encourage me to change that. i use a cleanser with exfoliating beads in it, but don't do a regular exfoliation on my skin. this pad will be perfect for that.
shea body butter: i'm a big fan of body butter, especially since my skin is so dry these days. i have a large container of it in my bathroom that i use every night on my hands before i go to bed, but this one will be perfect for travel and to keep in my purse while i'm on the go. it's coconut lime scented, so it smells just like a warm summer day. yes, please.
nail polish: i haven't used this brand of nail polish before, but i like the bright pink shade of this one. i'm kind of picky when it comes to polishes that i use because there's only a few that actually go chip-less for more than a day, so i'm curious to see if this one will fall into that category or not.
bar soap: i'm excited about this all-natural soap. it smells delicious and i appreciate that it's handmade. it's perfect to throw in my travel bag for trips away so that i can avoid using hotel room soap.
makeup base: i'm especially excited about this one. it's a creamy consistency that illuminates and highlights beautifully. i'll try it as concealer, but if that doesn't work, it will be great to highlight my darker areas, like under my eyes. it's the perfect size to throw in my purse for a quick touch-up during the afternoon.
