Beauty Box 5: January
January can be a bit of a draining month. The sky is gray, the temperatures are low, and it seems it will never end. On the bright side, it’s the start of a brand new year full of opportunities that are yours for the taking. Greet the new year feeling confident and well put together with a little help from our friends at Beauty Box 5.
I received the colors Solar Flare, Vibrant Plum, Vibrant Green, and Capri Blue. The colors are certainly bright and pigmented. I lean more toward the minimalist side of things, but I had fun using these colors to add a little pop to my everyday look. I used Vibrant Plum as an eyeliner and it really made my blue eyes pop. #coastalaccents
Bright nail art can definitely brighten any dreary winter day. I applied the strips in about 20 minutes. They lasted about a week, and stayed lustrous the entire time. I received a butterfly pattern which would normally have not been my first choice, but I ended up really loving the way my nails looked all week! #sallyhansen
Mascara is essential for me. I never leave the house without it. I like having the big, bold lash look without the clumpy feel, and that’s exactly what I was able to achieve with this mascara. I really loved how flexible the brush was. It felt like it really gripped and coated each lash. #fusionbeauty
There is no denying that the winter air dries the skin out, and unfortunately many of the soaps and body washes we use can strip away what little oils we have left. Using moisturizers daily certainly helps, but using a body wash that helps retain moisture makes a big difference. This body wash has Vitamin E and Omegas 3 and 6 that moisturize and keep the skin healthy so that it saves all of the moisture it has. My skin felt great after using it. #softsoap
I love healthy, soft hair, and this shampoo can help you maintain your soft, healthy locks. It has a refreshing, clean scent that I enjoyed. My hair was shiny and soft after using it. #garnier
