Beauty Box 5: December
Winter is a beautiful time of year full of family, friends, great food, and shimmery, white nights. It’s a whirlwind of excitement. Make sure to take a few extra minutes to pamper yourself so you can keep up with the fun. This month’s beauty box has a few goodies that help you wind down and leave you feeling refreshed. P.s. it’s ok to eat a few too many cookies. It only comes once a year!
The windy city can be relentless in the winter months, and my lips tend to pay the price. I feel like I’m constantly applying chapstick, and this pomegranate flavored stick has really helped me. I always apply before heading out in the cold, and I apply a little extra before bed allowing the vitamin E, rosemary extract, and beeswax to really sink in. My lips feel wonderful and ready for some red holiday lip color. #BodyDrench
I like to change my nail color pretty often, so having good polish remover is a must. I liked the remover pads. I used one pad for about 2 nails, the scent isn’t overbearing, and the container is small and easy to store. If I could change one thing about this product, I would find a way to make the container shut more securely. #abosluteny
This moisturizer is great. A little bit goes a long way, so I feel the price is understandable. It goes on smoothly and leaves my face feeling fresh and soft. Wrinkles aren’t my biggest concern at the time, but it’s better to prevent rather than repair. I use it twice a week, and I love the way it makes my face feel and look. #juicebeauty
I received red glitter polish that is perfect for Christmas and even New Years. It stayed shiny and vibrant until I took it off about a week after applying. BB5 recommended dabbing the glitter in small dots vs. applying in stripes. It really helped me get as much glitter as possible with little effort. #nanacoco

The holidays are great for showing off your favorite fragrance. With all of the hugging and group picture taking, smelling nicely is great for you and everyone around you. I’m not the biggest fan of this scent, but when I wore it I received several compliments. It lasted for quite a long time. I’m interested in checking out other scents from Lucky Brand. #luckynumber6
