Beauty Box 5: June 2014



Beautybox5june14Whether you’re pretending to be Audrey Hepburn while sipping iced coffee or channeling Marilyn Monroe at the beach, remember this mantra: less effort, more cool. This June we recommend focusing on the Iconic (and easy) hot weather basics just apply sunscreen, throw on a little white dress and add a few coats of mascara to beat the heat!

June’s box is meant to be hot weather basics, if that’s the case I would have liked to have seen a facial sunscreen rather than a red nail polish. I’m still very happy with this months box, mainly because it came with a Sedona Lace blending brush.

BB5 June 14
Nicka K New Tork Nail Polish, NY139 I believe is the color but I’m not sure. The picture on the card shows a magenta color, but my bottle is a blood-red color. Red nail polish is red nail polish, right?

Glam Natural Mascara, this is a brand I’ve personally never heard of. The full size price is $28, so hopefully this is the best mascara I’ll ever put on my face. >:)

Eslor Herbal Soothing Gel and Soothing Cream, is a once a day soothing gel and twice a day cream for people with problem dry skin. Since I’ve gotten pregnant my skin is trending to oily but I expect to return to dry skin once baby jumps out. This is a very expensive treatment at $42 for 1 oz of the gel and $65 for 2.7 oz of the cream.

Design Essentials Natural Curling Mousse, Perfect for simple wash and wear styles. I don’t use product in my hair much, so I probably wont use this. It does smell…not like regular mousse. I thik the claim on the card that is smells seriously amazing is a bit of a reach, then again I have pregnant nose.

Sedona Lace Synthectic Blender Brush, is the winner of the box for me. I’m a brush junkie and I’ve had my eye on this brand for a while now. This brush feels very well made, and the bristles are soooooo soft. Only complaint is, the brush was too big for the box so they jammed it in, leaving my brush head crooked. It’s already better after a wash, so hopefully it straightens out.

This box also came with 4 free box cards which is pretty cool. I will be giving these away. Overall a decent box. None of these things scream ” Summer Staple” to me, but that’s just me.

See anything in this months box that interests you??

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and Happy Friday The 13th!!

  1. I didn’t realize it was Firday 13th *panicks & starts to breathe into a paper bag* 😀 The brush is definitely the best part of this beauty box but the nail polish seems lovely too but you are right a facial sunscreen would’ve been more appropriate! Have a lovely and sunny weekend with your loves ❤

  2. A sunscreen would have been in order, yes, but the shade of that nail polish is really pretty 😀 the facial treatment sounds fancy, hope you enjoy everything 😀
