Makeup trends may come and go, but beauty staples like red nail polish and a good mascara never go out of style. June's Beauty Box 5 is all about celebrating iconic basics that stand the test of time. Much like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, BB5's summer mantra is: less effort, more cool. Let's dig in to see what came in this month's box shall we?
Organix Coconut Water Shampoo & Conditioner
I've been a big Organix fan since waaay back in the day. It's refreshing to see they keep coming up with new amazing products. Speaking of refreshing - this hydrating duo is charged with electrolytes and coconut oil to give your hair a silky, healthy shine. I loved it! (Then again, I love anything with coconut in it.)
Vita Bath Body Wash
This deliciously rich body wash creates a luxurious lather, but is free of propylene glycol, mineral oils, and silicone. It smelled like I was bathing in a bowl of cherries - which I kinda loved. So good!
Eslor Introductory Collection Calming Kit
I generally don't like receiving sample packets like this because I don't feel like you can honestly tell the difference it does to your skin in one wash. I will say that this packet included Eslor's all-star products including a soothing refiner and cleanser, replenishing scrub, comforting mask, and soothing cream that is suppose to hydrate and protect you skin, and is also paraben-free.
Nicka K New York Nail Color - 139 Ripe Apple
You know I'm a sucker for red nail polish and cute packaging - and this Nicka K polish has both!! I have quite a collection of reds actually, and it always amazing me how different each shade can be. This one is called Ripe Apple is more a vampy red, than a bright red. I love it, although I think it would be more appropriate of the fall.
Glam Natural Mascara
If you have sensitive eyes this mascara is for you! Gluten-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic this vegan formula lifts lashes and wont irritate your eyes so feel free to layer away!
