Review: May 2014 Beauty Box 5

I came across a Beauty Box 5 advertisement on Facebook offering a free box for new subscribers, so I immediately signed up because who doesn't love freebies? For those of you who aren't familiar with the site, it's a beauty sampling service that delivers 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products for $12. So, without further ado, here's a little review of my May box!

First, here's an overview of the products with brief descriptions:

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion (travel size - $0.97)
I believe I've previously used this but I don't remember how effective it was for my skin, so I thought it'd be a great opportunity to give it another try. So far, it's been working great for the dry patches on my face.

H2O Plus Hand and Nail Cream ($3?)
I highly doubt that I'll be using this at all because the fragrance is just too strong... almost like sunscreen mixed with a really mature scent of perfume.

Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths ($2.97)
Body cloths and facial wipes aren't all that exciting, so there's not much to say about these. I guess it's nice that they included three!

Harvey Prince Hello Sample ($12)
I never wear perfume because the scent is usually too strong for me, but this smells absolutely divine. It's a mix of floral and fruity scents, and it doesn't make me feel dizzy like most fragrances.

Cattiva Precisione Eye Liner ($20)
Last but not least - the main reason that I subscribed to this month's box. I was worried that this eyeliner won't be included in mine, but I'm so glad that I received everything that regular subscribers are supposed to. Some people who signed up with the free box code didn't get this and instead received some unwanted products from previous months, so I'm quite fortunate to have this full-sized item of  $20 value. I can't live without black waterliner, so this will be a new favorite of mine since it's waterproof and highly pigmented!

That's all for my first box from BB5. The total comes out to be about $39 which I think is an incredible deal, so I highly encourage you to take advantage of that free box code! 

I hope you all have a great day! I'll have my Ipsy May 2014 review posted in a day or two.
