Subscription Review: Beauty Box 5

(Affiliate links included)
Hello everyone and welcome back!!! 

We are starting this week by talking about something new.  "Beauty Box 5".

Beauty Box 5 is  a subscription based service that provides you with five (5) deluxe samples and some full size products to your door every month.  

 Beauty Box 5'goal is to introduce their monthly subscribers to new and great products while sharing tips on the best way to use them.  

Every month you will receive a mix of make up, beauty accessories, hair, skincare, fragrance, body and nail products.  

Beauty Box 5 offers free shipping on all their subscriptions (US ONLY). 

This month's Beauty Box 5 contained the following products:

(Travel Size) Rave 4X Mega Unscented Hairspray:  

This is an 1.5 oz bottle that is actually considered a "BONUS" item in this month's since it was not part of the "Five Item Description Card".  But travel size items are always welcome in my bag and in Bree's dance bag.  

I used it on my hair this morning and so far it has kept my hair free of any frizz.  Also, my hair did not get that "crunchy" or "sticky" feeling. 

Next, we have Olive Natural Beauty Elixir:  this is a 1 oz bottle.  (2 oz bottle retails for $37.00).   All natural essential oil that can be used together  with your daily skin lotion or you can apply it directly to your skin after a good cleansing.  

Now, VO5 Hot Oil Therapy Treatment really doesn't need any introduction or explanation... we all love a good hot oil treatment and I often use it on my son's hair (more than on Ms bree's hair).

My mother used it on my hair when was a little girl and now I use it on my kids.   

Nika Exfoliating Brush:  It's the cutest and softest brush I have every touched.  The retail price of this brush is $17.00 and you simply use it with you favorite face wash in a circular motion over your face and neck in order to achieve beautiful skin. 

This month's Beauty Box 5 can't be "Spa Day" theme without having Spa Day Hair Ties by Did Hair.  Let's be honest, there is no such thing as "enough hair bands".  These bands have no metal that can pull your hair and I just love the cute designs on them.  These ties retail price is $6.50.

And the last item in this month's Beauty Box 5 is Retinol Spa Treatment Mask (Retail price of $7.50).  The retinol is an ingredient that reduces expression lines and wrinkle while boosting cell renewal.  

Every item in this month's Beauty Box 5 will be used ... I don't anticipate any of them going to waste. The value of this month's box is approximately $51.59 and this price does not include the bonus item.  

Beauty Box 5 monthly subscription is only $12.00 (no shipping on all beauty boxes)!  Of course, they also offer other options like $30.00 for 3 months and $99.00 for 12 months.

Overall, I'm really impressed with these items! 

I will be reviewing each item separately so stay tuned for those reviews!!! 

Beauty Box 5 loves new subscribers, all new subscriber will receive FREE Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow with their first box!!  (This offer has been extended until the end of September 2016).   Click here to get your FREE EYESHADOW WITH YOUR FIRST BOX.

Natural Hair Care: Daily Tip #8

Hello and welcome back!! 

Our friend, Keianna, owner of Chi Chi Sophistication Natural Hair Studio has a really good tip for today: 

Daily Tip #8:

"Using rubber bands on natural hair is not a crime.  However, they must be installed  and removed correctly".

Here is another tip, soak the rubber bands in oil (i.e., olive oil) for a few minutes to prevent them from pulling and breaking your hair.  I buy the tub of black rubber bands at the Hair Supply stores.. the tub usually lasts me approximately a year it contains 500 rubber bands.

I only use rubber bands to secure the end of a braid or twist.  

We hope today's Natural Hair Care Tip was  helpful!!  If you missed any of our previous Daily Tips, you can find them here:

Natural Hair Care: Daily Tip #7

Hello and welcome to our Natural Hair Care- Daily Tip Series by our friend Ms. Keianna owner of Chi Chi Sophistication Natural Hair Studio.

What a great tip! 

I always have my combs at hand along with my Creme of Nature Leave In  and I rub oil (jojoba oil) on the palm of my hands before I begin to unravel each braid (or twist).

Always be mindful of the edges and try not to keep the same style for far too long.  (extremely fuzzy braids = lots of tangles and pulling)  

Give your hair and scalp a break for at least a couple of days before your braid (or twist) your hair again.

Braid in different directions every time to prevent long term damage.
