Hola 2015! BeautyBox5 promises fresh possibilities with their January edition's samples. This month's box includes an eye shadow, salon effect nail accessories, eye mascara,vitamin and body wash, and daily care fortifying shampoo. As the Beauty Box 5 puts it:
The beginning of the year can mean new challenges, but rather than shying away from confrontation, greet them wholeheartedly with a smile and a twinkle in (and lining) your perfectly accented eyes! You never know what new opportunities are on the horizon, so put your well manicured self forward and say hi to fresh possibilities!
This Nutri Serums Body Nourishing wash from Softsoap is great to treat your body with rich moisture and a super fresh scent. I used this last night when I took shower and smells divine. I love the little softening pearls in it because it has Vitamin E that helps hydrate your skin and Omega 3 and 6 that helps your skin retain the moisture all day long with the harshness of winter season. My daughter said that it's fun to use.
Every now and then, I switch hair care because my scalp tends to dry especially during the winter because I use hot water often. I have never tried Garnier Fructis before and this is a great opportunity or me. I was skeptical to use it last night but tried it anyway. It turned out, I like it a lot! The smell and the after effect of it in my hair and scalp is awesome! This shampoo has a grapefruit antioxidant and proteins that leave your hair fortified, soft and shiny.
I just painted my nails the other day so I did not try this Sally Hansen Salon Effects real nail polish strips. My niece in law used this kind during the holidays and she also did my daughter's fingernails, they were gorgeous. I can't wait to use this on my nails. The good thing is, this could last to up to ten days. What I like is that you can just peel and apply the strips to your nails with no fuzz.
As you may know me, it just last year that I started exploring the make up section and that is because BeautyBox5 provides me with different products that I could try. I still have a lot to learn as I don't do make up everyday, just very seldom when I am in the mood. These eye shadows can really make your your eyes smokey and beautiful.
The last but not the least is this Ultrafresh gold standard mascara in blackout. I love that the bristles are so soft.YOu can make your lashes so dramatic with this. If you are feeling bold, you can layer two or three coats for the most va-va-voom effect.
In my case, I only applied it on my lashes once so you can barely tell I am wearing mascara. I don't really need that va-va-voom effect since I am just home.
This year, I promise to take care of myself and try to be confident and feel fabulous ha ha ha. Let us see about that! It is really a challenge for me to put make up on, it is just not my thing but for fun sake, I do it once in a while.
