April Beauty Box 5 Review: Bloom

OMG you guys, I love April. Isn’t it the best? It’s when we (usually), finally get some warm temps, like open your windows take in the breeze warm, and when everywhere you look, EVERYTHING is starting to blossom, bud and bloom. The “dead” season I politely refer to as March, is gone, and suddenly, everything seems so alive. And everyone is so much happier, right? I passed a million other runners/walkers this morning on my run, and each and every one smiled and said, “Hi,” or, “Good morning.” It’s funny how sunshine and warm temps bring out the best in people, but they totally do.

Anyways, I’m getting sidetracked…the April Beauty Box 5, Bloom, arrived this week, yay!!! Per usual, it was packed with totally usable deluxe samples and full-size products that I can’t wait to try and/or travel with.

Incoco Nail Polish Review, Lace Manicure Set

Lasting Smiles Passionfruit Mango Organic Lip Balm (Full Size, $4.99): This smells fantastic and goes on silky smooth, BUT, the BEST thing about Lasting Smiles is how good they are for others around the world. Their healthy organic ingredients support fairtrade global farmers and they also help fund cleft surgeries for children! Lasting Smiles and Beauty Box 5 have helped provide 20 children with life transforming surgeries!

Dancin’ Goat Hula Bliss Body Lotion (Deluxe Sample, $4.50; Full Size $17.99): What a fun line! This surprisingly combines goat’s milk, coconut oil, lavender, eucalyptus and rosemary to leave skin hydrated and happy. I love the smell as well…it’s like an added bonus!

Incoco Nail Polish Appliqué Set (Full Size, $8.99, assorted colors sent): I can’t wait to try out this fab manicure set in Beauty Sleep. I adore that the “lace” pattern is a bit haphazard and not placed on the exact same place on every nail. So me! Also included was a 20% off coupon for another Incoco Appliqué set. I checked out their variety and am in love…with about 20 of them. Soooo, we’ll see what one I end up choosing, but barring any horrible application accident, I can’t wait to stock up on a few of these!

Style Essentials TwinGloss (Full Size, $2.50): A sweet pastel shade teams up with a glittery brighter option in this non-sticky gloss. It has a light tint, making it perfect to wear alone, but can be layered over any of your other shades as well.

First Aid Beauty Facial Cleanser (3 Product Samples, $1; Full Size $20): Ok, so I hate to be “that person,” but I L-O-V-E LOVE the packaging of First Aid Beauty products. Very modern-vintage if that’s a thing. Aside from the packaging, I’m looking forward to trying these (which are perfect for traveling) as they’ll wash away the day’s debris with their paraben-free, safe-for-sensitive-skin formula.

The total value of the April Beauty Box 5 was $21.98 for a savings of between $9.98 and $13.73!

New members can sign up for Beauty Box 5 three different ways:

  1. By the Month – $12/Box
  2. By the Quarter – $30/3 Boxes ($10/Box)
  3. By the Year – $99/12 Boxes ($8.25/Box)

I have to tell you guys, I’ve had/seen other beauty subscription boxes before, but honestly, Beauty Box 5 is consistently my favorite. They rarely send me things I’m not interested in or don’t care for. Just my two-cents:)

Hope you’re having a fantastic April!
