August Beauty Box 5: Radiant and Remarkable

I know I say this all the time…or maybe just once a month to all of you…but I really do love Beauty Box 5! When I know that sweet little blue box is arriving, I practically greet my mailman with the same gusto a child greets Christmas morning. Ahhh, now I know…that’s what Beauty Box 5 is: Christmas for adults! With that realization, here’s what I had awaiting me in the August Beauty Box 5, Radiant and Remarkable:

August Beauty Box 5

August Beauty Box 5 Included Full and Deluxe Size Samples

August Beauty Box 5 Included Purlisse, La Fresh and Novex

Novex Brazilian Keratin (1-Use Sample, $1 or $19.50 for the full size): This ultra-hydrating nourishing treatment works well with any hair type, helping to renew and reinforce strands. Massage into scalp and hair after shampooing and relax for 25 minutes before rinsing away. I plan on taking a day off this week for some quality “me time,” and this is definitely on my to-do list!

Purlisse Pur Protect SPF 30 (Deluxe Sample, $18 or $55 for the full size): Anytime I’m graced with a Purlisse product, I get just a little giddy. I’ve used this lightweight cream before and love it. Perfect for August when my skin is borderline oily and the SPF 30 will keep me free from burns and premature aging. '

La Fresh Travel-Lite Makeup Remover Wipes (Deluxe Sample, $3.40 or $19.99 for the full size): It’s hard not to be a fan of chic brand La Fresh and these handy wipes are not only great for sensitive skin, but are paraben free; and even though they’re also oil-free, they easily wipe away traces of all makeup – whether on eyes, lips or face.

Style Essentials Nail Polish

Style Essentials Nail Polish (from the Touch of Teal Collection, Set of 4, $7): Such a pretty shade of teal when worn alone, it’s slightly iridescent. However this is a great layering polish as well. I recently wore it over a favorite brown and it instantly transformed it to a gorgeous olive-green hue perfect for autumn.

Nanacoco Lip Gloss

Nanacoco Lip Gloss in Lovely (Full Size, $3.99): Soooo, this was my product to obsess over this month. I’m infatuated. Literally. The color is a highly pigmented wash of fuchsia that instantly glamorizes any pout. Enriched with Vitamin E, the non-sticky formula nourishes and the smell is delicious. I’ve worn it alone the past few days, but it also looks fab over my Starlooks Tickle Me Pink from last month’s box!

Nanacoco in Lovely

Such a perfect color for a multitude of skin tones! And…I always love the opportunity to show you colors by painting hearts on my hand♥

Total value of the August Beauty Box 5 was $27.64 for a savings of between $15.64 and $19.39!
