Beauty Box 5

This box was free (the first one, after that it is $12.00 a month) This was based on my beauty profile. However, the other ones I seen got the same thing.

INCLUDED IN THIS BOX:    
Argan oil
multicultural curls
Revlon bold lacquer (& coupon)
Anna Naturals Glowing Mama (facial scrub)
body drench  red licorice
                                                                                                         The Aragan was a great deep conditioning treatment. You leave it in  for 10 minutes then rinse. It made my hair very soft. It worked so well that I thought i would leave it in overnight. My hair need is dry and I have split ends.The overnight experiment was not good. My hair looked like a doll that had not been brushed and once I washed it out it was frizzy. I had to rewash. The multicultural curl helped my hair also. Occasionally, I like
to enhance my natural wavy hair. However, I hate the sticky feeling that most products leave behind. This was not sticky. It help with the frizz,; as well as, define the curls and added body. Revlon bold lacquer, all I can say is WOW. Revlon has amazing, long-lasting products. This was no surprise that this was the same. My lashes me are short and not very many of them. This made them long and fuller, and had  standing in the mirror staring at them. Even after extremely hot weather, there was no clumping or smudging. I took the coupon and went to get another one. This is one of my favorite mascara. Now for the Anna Natural facial scrub. Those of you who read my blog or follow me on any social media know that I am an advocate
for Green living. This is a green product and I probably will buy in the future. I love facial scrubs This was no exception. It made my skin look and feel brand new. I felt like it was a spa treatment. Healthy looking skin and glow.  Lastly, body drench chapstick. I use regularly even before getting this. I was not fond of the red licorice smell. But it does keep my lips soft.

MY REVIEW
I was leary of the color choices in this months IPSY bag. The Bare Minerals eyeshadow seemed too dark for my taste, but I tried it and was very surprised with the results. The color maintained its stay all day! (90 degree weather) I was also happy that it had a spf because I try to protect ALL areas of my skin. The color match my skin completely and was lighter than expected. It went on very smooth.and silky. It is available in 10 neutral shades. Next we have the nail polish, Nailtini. The nailtini was a great size and the color choice was ok.  It was a creamy mango with shimmering gold, and a satin finish in just two coats. It did last long time (about a week) and dry pretty rapidly. However, it was thin and streaky. Too many coats for my taste and I still could not get a even coat.  Thirdly, we have the tanning spray. The Hang Ten tanning spray was the product I was most excited about. I laid out with even coated legs. I only put it on my legs because this where the sun just does not wanna get. I did not like the oily feeling but the results was worth the few minutes of uncomfortableness. It made my legs shiny and soft, as well as brought a nice glow to them. This is made with rich vitamins, antioxidants, and exotic plant extracts. I loved it.  The Clear  Clinic was small and compact. I was loving that the size was purse friendly. But the real test lied in would it work. Not many do for me. This did !!!!  I immediately put it on the first bump that came up. It took away the red and swelling. I am still surprised. It is made with menthol, glycolic, and salicylic acids. A definite kick acne out the window effect.  Lastly I received the Tint & Sass. I did not like this color at all. It was too bright. As I applied it, I seen I was correct in my thinking. I tried to get off and could not. I gave up trying to get it off and thought as much as I drink it would come off shortly. Boy was I wrong. I could still see it when  I washed off my make up that night. Which then left me thinking, I wish this was a complimenting color and this would be my new favorite .   My conclusion: Pros and cons with this one due to color. But all in all, GREAT products. You can bet $10.00 a month. You ladies have to check this out. Sign up NOW. You will not regret it.

These are healthy snacks delivered to your door for only $6.00 a week or less often if you would prefer. 
 The first box is completely free and is well worth it. In the top corner, was brooklyn bites. It has cashews,pretzels, and roasted pumpkin seeds with their unique flavoring. This was my favorite out of this box. Under that was granny smith apples and toffee. I don not care for chewy fruit but the toffee was beyond amazing. Top right corner, you see triple berry smoothie. This has cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, and chewy bananas. It was a delightful mix but again the chewy texture was not my thing. 
Lastly, we have salt and vinegar nuts. This had a mixture of nuts and I could not stop eating this. However I did not taste the vinegar. It must have been very light. Well worth being free & well worth $6. Give it a try and punch in my referal to get your first box free and the 5th box free.You can cancel even after your first free box. Nothing to lose.
